Everything you always wanted to know about EU health policies

What does the European Union mean for health and health systems? Now that we have a new European Parliament in place and soon a new Commission, it's the perfect moment to ask this question. However, answering it is not straightforward: EU policy affects health and health systems in many ways, much more than one might think. Even if the legal mandate to act directly on health issues is limited, still other EU policies also influence health and interfere with health systems indirectly. This book, which was presented last week at the European Health Forum Gastein, puts all the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle together, also to better understand how EU health policies may further evolve in the years to come.
