In his confirmation hearing at the European Parliament in Brussels on Tuesday, Lithuanian Commissioner-designate for Health and Food Safety Vytenis Andriukaitis said that “supporting universal health coverage, strengthening primary care, improving quality and safety, promoting e-health” will be among his priorities.

Andriukaitis also said that the EU would not lower its safety standards as result of negotiations over the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), after MEPs expressed concern the EU would loosen its rules on, for example, the use of hormones or antibiotics in livestock. These rules currently limit or even ban some US exports to the Union.
