Lissabontraktaten har styrket sundhedspolitikkens betydning, idet den foreskriver, at der skal sikres et højt sundhedsbeskyttelsesniveau ved fastlæggelsen og gennemførelsen af alle Fællesskabets politikker og aktiviteter. Det primære ansvar for beskyttelse af folkesundheden og navnlig for sundhedssystemerne ligger fortsat hos medlemsstaterne. EU har imidlertid en vigtig rolle at spille for at forbedre folkesundheden, forebygge og håndtere sygdomme, imødegå forhold, der kan indebære risiko for menneskers ...

Det primære ansvar for beskyttelse af folkesundheden og navnlig for sundhedssystemerne ligger fortsat hos medlemsstaterne. EU har imidlertid en vigtig rolle at spille for at forbedre folkesundheden, forebygge og håndtere sygdomme, imødegå forhold, der kan indebære risiko for menneskers sundhed, og harmonisere sundhedsstrategier mellem medlemsstaterne. EU har på vellykket vis gennemført en omfattende politik gennem sundhedsstrategien ”Sundhed for Vækst” og det hertil hørende handlingsprogram (2014-2020) og den afledte ret. Den Europæiske Socialfond Plus (ESF +) vil fortsat yde støtte i programmeringsperioden 2021-2027.

Adgang til lægemidler til en overkommelig pris, bekæmpelse af antimikrobiel resistens, etisk korrekt gennemførelse af kliniske forsøg og incitamenter til forskning og udvikling er blot nogle af de centrale spørgsmål, som EU beskæftiger sig med på dette område. For at holde trit med de videnskabelige og teknologiske fremskridt og imødegå nye sundhedstrusler skal der foretages en regelmæssig evaluering og opfølgning af lovgivningsmæssige og politiske foranstaltninger.

Fødevaresikkerhed

01-02-2018

Den europæiske fødevaresikkerhedspolitik har to formål: at beskytte menneskers sundhed og forbrugernes interesser og at sikre, at EU's indre marked fungerer efter hensigten. EU sikrer således, at der fastsættes kontrolstandarder, og at disse overholdes, på området for foder- og fødevarehygiejne, dyresundhed, plantesundhed og forebyggelse af fødevareforurening fra eksterne stoffer. Unionen regulerer endvidere mærkningskravene for fødevare- og foderstofprodukter.
