Member States want to strengthen the EU’s capacity in the field of health

publié le 31 October 2022

The Covid-19 crisis required a strong response from the European Commission, which resulted in the establishment of the “European Health Union”. This should enable the EU to respond better to future public health crises through various regulations, three of which were adopted by the Council on 24 October 2022.

The Covid-19 crisis made Member States and the European institutions aware of the need to consolidate the EU’s health safety framework in order to better protect European citizens. In total, four regulations have been adopted, the first of which has been implemented since March 2022. This is the Regulation on the extended mandate of the European Medicines Agency (EMA).

Three other regulations have just been adopted by the Council:

These new provisions complete the European Health Union and provide a powerful legal framework to improve the EU’s capabilities in the key areas of prevention, preparedness, surveillance, risk assessment, early warning and response. These regulations will enter into force in November 2022.
