Following a conference organised by EuroHealthNet’s Swedish partner – the Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions, together with Euregha and EuroHealthnet, EuroHealthNet has published some recommendations on EU support for local and regional action on health equity.
Health is a value in itself as well as a prerequisite for the achievement of the EU 2020 objectives of smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. People´s health influences economic outcomes in terms of productivity, labour supply, human capital and public spending. In many of the member states of the European Union, however, health inequalities are increasing. This is a joint challenge for society that needs to be addressed and tackled by all levels of government.
