New perspectives for public health in the European union


The Commission has to be selective in the actions it takes, since it cannot and should not do everything. Selectivity, transparency, high-profile visibility, added value, complementarity with measures taken by the Member States, and partnership with professionals: these are the key concepts in the Community’s work in the field of health as in many other fields.
