Analysis: Will the 2016 EU Semester process contribute to improving health equity?

This document brings together two areas amenable to policy actions that can improve health and reduce health inequalities: children and families; and health systems from a health promotion perspective. For children and families, the analysis aims to ascertain the scope and inclusiveness of CSRs related to children and families and to find out whether the suggested measures are a step towards improving health and reducing health inequalities. For health systems we try to examine whether the 2016 CSRs are likely to stimulate reforms that reduce health inequalities and support investment in health promotion and disease prevention.

These topics were selected based on EuroHealthNet’s previous work on health systems, child development and health promotion. This document aims to compare findings of 2016 with those of 2015 analysis and responds to the announcement of the Annual Growth Survey 2017 in November 2016, which marks the beginning of a new EU semester process.
