Though we live increasingly longer in Europe, more than 1.2 million people die prematurely every year in the EU. Many of these deaths could be avoided through better health promotion and disease prevention as well as more effective healthcare interventions. Prevention of infectious diseases, vaccination programmes, actions against rare diseases and promotion of good health through healthy life styles are all aspects where EU policies can and does play an important role.

What policies does the EU have in place to address public health challenges such as antimicrobial resistance? Why are people in Europe still dying of measles – a vaccine-preventable disease? How should we produce and consume food in the future?
