Health EU Portal

The Health and Consumers Directorate-General of the European Commission has introduced the Health-EU Portal (the official public health portal of the European Union)

Its main objective is to provide European citizens with easy access to comprehensive information, and to permit greater involvement of individuals, institutions, associations, organisations and bodies in the health field by facilitating consultation and participation.The Health-EU Portal understands itself as "directed to those who want to keep informed about issues affecting their health, and at those who wish to keep up to date with policies and decisions taken at European, national and international level. The Portal is also an important source of information for health professionals, administrations, policy makers and stakeholders. It also provides expert users with access to statistical databases relevant to public health."
