Shaping Priorities for the EU4Health Funding Programme
The Commission conducted in May a targeted consultation on the EU4Health programme’s future priorities, orientation, and needs.
DiCE contributed to the process, in its response highlighting the need for continued focus on cancer, especially through:
- Promotion of innovation and further research in diagnostics and early detection.
- Fostering more cooperation between Member States in exchange for best practices and promotion of European expertise centres.
- Continuing work to diminish inequalities in cancer treatment.
EU4Health programme has a budget of €5.3 billion, the fourth and largest of the EU health programmes.
The programme provides funding to national authorities, health organisations and other bodies through grants and public procurement; its duration is 2021-2027.
The first analysis of the outcomes will be discussed at the EU4Health stakeholders conference on 9 June 2023.
