EAEP and All Policies for a Healthy Europe join forces to promote citizens’ health & well-being
Brussels, 31 August 2023 – the European Association of E-Pharmacies (EAEP) has officially joined All Policies for a Healthy Europe, with a view to contributing to its mission to put citizens’ health and well-being at the heart of European policy-making.
Healthy Europe’s focus on three pillars, namely environment, digital, and economy, to promote a broad and bold vision for citizens’ health and well-being in Europe, is fully in line with the EAEP’s mission.
All Policies for a Healthy Europe is an intersectoral initiative that brings together a diverse group of NGOs, think-tanks, associations, companies, and individuals. The organisation focuses on strategic clusters that mirror the priorities of the European Union: an Economy that works for people; the European Green Deal; and a Europe fit for the Digital Age, underpinned by Promoting the European Way of Life.
Of crucial importance to the e-pharmacy sector, the EAEP is committed to contributing especially to Healthy Europe’s key work on digital policy, including, among others, the European Health Data Space (EHDS), digital literacy, digital health infrastructure, and artificial intelligence. EAEP and Healthy Europe share the belief that embracing and adopting new technologies and digital solutions in the healthcare systems will have a transformative impact on public health.
