Copenhagen, 21 September 2020
In the latest episode of the Health in Europe podcast, WHO Regional Director for Europe Dr Hans Henri P. Kluge discusses the formation of the European Programme of Work (EPW) 2020–2025, “United Action for Better Health in Europe”, and how it will improve health in the WHO European Region over the coming years. Dr Kluge also explains how the EPW’s development was impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and how citizens can get involved to help make the EPW a reality.
The EPW is linked to the 3 core priorities of WHO’s 13th General Programme of Work: to ensure that more people have access to universal health coverage, enjoy improved health and well-being, and are better protected from health emergencies. Supporting these 3 priorities are 4 flagship areas: behavioural and cultural insights, mental health, immunization, and digital health.
