Health expenditure & economy

In an ageing Europe, a healthy society and active workforce will be key determinants of sustainable productivity and economic growth and thus key conditions for the EU's Lisbon Agenda to deliver. Human capital has for long been recognised as a contributor to economic wealth, but it is forgotten that people can only accumulate and provide human capital if they are healthy, both physically and mentally. Far too often politics consider health as a cost and not as long-term investment in human capital.

EU health strategy

The Commission proposal for the EU Health programme 2007-2013 aligns future health action with the overall EU objectives of prosperity, solidarity and security and aims to further exploit synergies with other policies.
