  • EuroHealthNet Position on European Commission‘Social Investment Package for Growth and Cohesion: "Investing in health, a prerequisite to a prosperous European Union" | EuroHealthNet
    at risk of poverty or social exclusion The Commission s new call to invest in sustainable health systems to consider health as an asset rather than a burden and to reduce health inequalities is therefore welcome said Clive Needle EuroHealthNet Director But this will now need serious engagement from and with all responsible bodies and stakeholders across Europe When the numbers of young unemployed people are soaring that is a health emergency as much as an economic crisis Professionals in health systems need to be involved as much as social sectors and need to ensure quality equity and effectiveness of all that is done That means preventing illness and promoting wellbeing for all He also pointed out that when massive societal challenges of obesity and mental ill health are being highlighted that integration between health and social systems is essential and that the stated EU aim of reorienting systems towards promotion of wellbeing and prevention of disease makes economic and social sense Addressing the socio economic determinants of health is essential to improve the efficiency of health systems We therefore strongly believe that re directing investment in better health promotion and disease prevention in and outside the health sector would help meet needs Since the Social Investment Package recognises the contribution of health promoting approaches to Europe s social and economic capital as did the recent ECFIN report on The Quality of Public Expenditures in the EU and other important documents before we hope that EU Member States will therefore be actively encouraged to re orient their health systems accordingly EuroHealthNet will now work with its network stakeholders and EU institutions to take forward elements of the EU Social Investment Package in discussions in national and regional capitals and together with the World Health Organization as it prepares for its

  • EuroHealthNet Workshop on “Applying EU Structural Funds for greater Health Equity” - Committee of the Regions - 26 March 2013 | EuroHealthNet
    as Impact Assessment tools and the establishment of regional networks and working groups that focus on the reduction of health inequalities The aim of the case studies is to capture and share such examples of how regions are addressing health inequalities to inform and inspire further regional and local level action It is clear from the case studies that making real inroads in reducing health inequalities requires commitment across governments and sectors A wide range of actors must work together to ensure that policies and practices improve conditions for the more and most deprived segments of the population and don t exacerbate inequalities including health inequalities In some countries and regions the challenge still lies in getting the issue of health inequalities onto the political agenda All regions face the challenge of engaging those sectors and actors that can make hard impact on the reduction of health inequalities and in attributing changes in levels of health inequalities to any specific policies Overall however the Equity Action case study reports demonstrate that in many regions the issue is getting at least some attention reflecting that there is potential for progress Embedding health equity in governance and policy structures and engaging other actors and sectors is certainly no easy task The case study reports provide examples of possible entry points Sharing learning across regions and building on experiences like those outlined in the reports is an important part of this process To register click here For more information contact Yoline Kuipers or consult www health inequalities eu Mark your calendars Equity Action Regional Network partners have also been active in identifying how EU Structural Funds have and can be applied to reduce health inequalities For more information contact Yoline Kuipers or consult www health inequalities eu For more information The Equity Action
