Sundhed-EU

Sundhed-EU portal
Portalen er et initiativ under EU's folkesundhedsprogram 2003-2008, der gennem høring og inddragelse skal gøre det lettere for enkeltpersoner, institutioner, sammenslutninger, organisationer og organer at engagere sig i sundhedsområdet. Der lægges vægt på, at EU’s befolkning skal kunne modtage enkle, klare og videnskabeligt underbyggede oplysninger om sundhedsbeskyttende og sygdomsforebyggende foranstaltninger. Et af de overordnede mål med portalen er at understrege, at borgerne har et medansvar for at forbedre deres egen sundhed. Den brede offentlighed vil få lettere ved at bidrage til og støtte de forskellige EU-aktiviteter og  programmer på folkesundhedsområdet, hvis der er større kendskab hertil
