Plan

14/03/2011

The EU countries and the Commission are called upon to start a reflection process with a view to optimising the response to the challenge of chronic diseases. This reflection should cover inter alia health promotion and prevention of chronic diseases, healthcare, research into chronic diseases and comparison of chronic diseases at European level. The outcomes of the reflection process should be summarised in a paper by 2012.
The conclusions take into account the results of the conference organised by the Belgian Presidency in Brussels on 20 October 2010. Chronic diseases are one of the presidency's priorities in the field of public health.
