Commission working paper on Health programme

A EC Staff Working Paper has been published on the recent Mid-Term Evaluation of the Public Health Programme.

The Working Paper presents a summary of the conclusions of the recently published Mid-Term Evaluation, which was prepared for the EC by an external consortium. While noting that the Health Programme’s overall funding volume is relatively minor compared to other EU programmes, the paper concludes that it impacts significantly on the work done by public health practitioners across the EU, particularly in new Member States where health budgets are currently under significant pressure.
