Health Working Group

 What is the Health Working Group?

It is important that MEPs have a forum to discuss issues that affect the health of Europe’s citizens.  There are many decisions that are made in the European Parliament which affect health, whether it’s nutritional labelling on food, health warnings on tobacco, research into new cancer treatments or cross border organ donations.

As a co-chair of the Working Group I want to give patients, medical professionals, industry, academics and policy makers a chance to discuss the best way forward on the most important topics in the field of health at the moment.
