The EU’s role in the field of human health is solidifying in terms of law and policy, but also with respect to the institutional organisation of human health expertise. In light of the emerging health-care union and questions regarding the nature and scope of a European health law, the institutional organisation deserves attention as it may affect the nature of the policy and law in this field.

Looking back in history, this article maps the consolidation of human health expertise in the main legislative and policy-making institutional actors in the European Union: The European Commission; the European Parliament; the Council of the European Union; and the European Agencies and committees.
