European Parliament MEP Lung Health Group event “Towards a European Health Union - BREATHE Vision for the future”, January 27, 10h00-11h15 CET

The COVID-19 pandemic has made visible the European Union weakneses and inequalities among Member States in healthcare and public health. The European Commission Communication on “Building a European Health Union: Stronger crisis preparedness and response for Europe”, published last November 2020, opens the way towards more EU action and coordination on health issues.

But how much a European Health Union could help prepare against other lung infections, and what can be the benefits of a European Respiratory Health Union?

Next January 27, respiratory patients and healthcare professionals will present their Breathe Vision for 2030, a document outlining the critical priorities Europe should work against to better prevent and care better for lung health, which include and urgent need for more data and research on  respiratory health to inform decisions, educate the public, and better prepare to reduce the toll from lung disease.  

The Breathe Vision for 2030 will be launched by the European Parliament MEP Lung Health Group in a public event accessible online on Wednesday 27th January, 2021 10:00 – 11:15 CET.
