Description of programme
"Health Programme "

The EU is required by its founding treaty to ensure that human health is protected as part of all its policies, and to work with the EU countries to improve public health, prevent human illness and eliminate sources of danger to physical and mental health.

The 3rd Health Programme has 4 overarching objectives. It seeks to:

  1. Promote health, prevent diseases and foster supportive environments for healthy lifestyles taking into account the 'health in all policies' principle,
  2. Protect Union citizens from serious cross-border health threats,
  3. Contribute to innovative, efficient and sustainable health systems,
  4. Facilitate access to better and safer healthcare for Union citizens.

The third EU health programme is the main instrument the European Commission uses to implement the EU health strategy. It is implemented by means of annual work plans which set out priority areas and the criteria for funding actions under the programme. The total budget for the programme is € 449.4 million.

Call
Mentally - access to mental health care and improving mental health literacy
Description of call
"Mentally - access to mental health care and improving mental health literacy"
The priorities to be implemented are:
  • To develop and test a multi-applicable framework across European countries and stakeholders in order to achieve the adequate (as needed) access to mental health care (in terms of diagnose and treatment in women and men) in close collaboration with relevant stakeholders within the field of mental health. This should help reducing excessive treatment of individuals in mental distress that do not need specialized help and facilitate best treatment of those who need specialized care.
  • To increase primary care professionals’ competencies, evaluate organization and capacity of care systems, and improve patient outcomes by developing different tools.
The expected result will be a network to add value at European level to help patients. Recommendations will be made to optimize referral processes related to mental disorders and to develop guidelines for evidence-based treatments, with a view to improving patient outcomes and decreasing health inequalities.
