The new EU4Health Programme

The Commission has proposed a new, ambitious stand-alone health programme for the 2021-2027 period – the EU4Health Programme. Through the EU4Health Programme, the Commission proposes to invest €9.4 billion in strengthening health systems. EU4Health will support disease prevention (including screening and early diagnosis) and health promotion programmes in Member States.

EU4Health will work closely with the EU’s main research and innovation programme, Horizon Europe, which includes a health cluster. Horizon Europe will finance research and innovation on topics such as life-long good health; environmental and social health determinants; non-communicable and rare diseases; infectious diseases; tools, technologies and digital solutions for health and care and healthcare systems. It will also include a research and innovation mission on cancer, one of the Commission’s top priorities in health policy. The EU4Health Programme will help to ensure best use of research results and facilitate the uptake, scale-up and deployment of health innovation in healthcare systems and clinical practice.

Once the proposal is adopted by Member States and the European Parliament, the intention is to start launching specific actions under EU4Health as of 1 January 2021.
