The European Commission has launched in December 2021 the Healthier together – EU non-communicable diseases (NCD) initiative to support EU countries in identifying and implementing effective policies and actions to reduce the burden of major NCDs and improve citizens’ health and well-being. The initiative covers the 2022-2027 period and includes 5 strands:
1. health determinants
2. cardiovascular diseases
4. chronic respiratory diseases
5. mental health and neurological disorders
All strands include a health equity dimension, thus supporting the reduction of health inequalities.
