The growing divide in health of those in our societies who are less and least well-off compared to those who are most well-off, reflect that we are not meeting EU’s Treaty objective of promoting the wellbeing of its peoples, social justice and social protection, combating exclusion and discrimination. This new EuroHealthNet publication is released ahead of the launch of the next annual cycle of EU economic and social policy coordination, known as the European Semester. The report explores whether the EU and its members states are seizing the opportunity to apply the available recovery-oriented funds to ‘build back’, in ways that systematically, structurally, and sustainably strengthen health, equity and well being.
For policymakers, the report lays out ways to implement the Council Conclusions on the Future of the European Semester in the context of the Recovery and Resilience Facility, adopted in November 2021.
