Investing in Health – The European Commission

In a new publication, the European Commission has called on member states to prioritise and modernise their social support programmes for the populations. The document titled “Investment in Health” outlines the commissions views and ambitions which cover such matters as sustainable health systems, investment in human capital and the need to reduce inequalities in the provision of health services. As a CAM Provider we welcome this initiative by the commission both directly and through our trade association we will follow up on developments towards the Commissions objectives.

The European Homoeopathic Industry, represented by ECHAMP, welcomed the initiative by the European Commission. ECHAMP in its response drew attention to the demands by European citizens that homoeopathic and antroposophical medicines should be made more freely available to European citizens as part of their health needs. More than one hundred-million European citizens use or have used homoeopathy and this is an issue which must be addressed. The regulatory framework is a major disincentive and impediment to availability because of its complexity and cost. ECHAMP have asked the Commission and the European Parliament to address this matter urgently.
