Manifesto: Building a healthier future for Europe

Building a strong European economy and cohesive European society largely depends on a healthy population. In fact, 70% of EU citizens want more to be done at EU level on healthcare. This is why ensuring all European citizens live healthier lives must be a priority for the new legislative mandate, supported by more patient centered health systems and a smart sectorial industrial policy and pro-innovation environment.

The health of the EU’s citizens depends on all of us - policy-makers, healthcare professionals, civil society and industry. Pooling our resources and expertise will ensure that what we do brings tangible benefits to EU citizens and strengthens the EU’s global reputation for outstanding R&D and innovation.

Together we can transform the lives of patients - it is why #WeWontRest.

The research-based pharmaceutical sector is pleased to share its vision and proposals on how to build a healthier future and brighter tomorrow for Europe.
