Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council of 11 March 2014 establishing the third multi-annual programme for Union action in the field of health for the period from 1 January 2014 to 31 December 2020.

Further information:

Health is not just a value in itself - it is also a driver for growth. Only a healthy population can achieve its full economic potential. The healthcare sector is one of the largest in the EU, accounting for approximately 10% of the EU’s gross domestic product and employing one in ten workers, with a higher than average proportion of workers with tertiary-level education.

The third programme of EU action in the field of health (2014-2020), ‘Health for Growth’, strengthens and emphasises the links between economic growth and a healthy population to a greater extent than the previous programmes. The programme is geared towards actions with clear EU added value, in line with the Europe 2020 objectives and current policy priorities.
