Many of the public health challenges facing Europe are cross-border in nature, and must thus be met with a coordinated, cross-border response. The European Parliament committee on Environment, Public Health and Food Safety (ENVI) is an important player in the creation of European public health policy; scrutinising European Commission proposals on public health, and generating proposals on better health legislation for Europe. The European Conservatives and Reformists have six full members of the committee.
The role of the political party at the European level is evolving, with demands for more attention to be given to the views of the directly elected Parliament in the formation of European policy. It is therefore important, in the run-up to what many expect to be game-changing European Parliament elections, to hear from the ECR on their priorities for public health policy for Europe.
