The Health Programme has a total budget of close to €450 million for 2014-2020 and it supports Member States’ efforts in four specific areas:
Promoting health, preventing diseases, and fostering healthy lifestyles.
Protecting citizens from serious cross-border health threats.
Supporting capacity building and contributing to innovative, efficient and sustainable health systems.
Facilitating access to better and safer healthcare for EU citizens.
There is nearly €58 million of EU funding available in 2016, which will be implemented through a call for proposals, organised and managed by the Consumer, Health, Agriculture and Food Executive Agency (CHAFEA) later this month.
