Book launch in cooperation with the WHO & MEP Tomislav Sokol

Healthcare is everyone’s business. Our health and wellbeing are inextricably linked – which is precisely why well structured and thoughtful policies in this respect are crucial.

Mr. Tomislav Sokol (MEP), EU40 and the WHO are pleased to invite you to the launch and presentation of the second edition of the book “Everything you always wanted to know about European Union health policies but were afraid to ask”.

The book provides a broad review and analysis of EU health policies, going beyond the public health mandate. We believe this is a timely and relevant publication, especially for newly elected members of the European Parliament, to understand and discuss the different dimensions of EU-level policymaking in the field of health.

Join us and let’s explore the array of EU policies that shape and affect the health of EU citizens.
