As Members of the European Parliament Environment, Public Health and Food Safety Committee (ENVI) votes on the EU4Health Programme, EPHA has prepared a number of voting recommendations for them to consider, as they finalise their position. To ensure a strong public health programme, our proposals are based on the following principles:

1. Include the commercial determinants of health and one health concept in the Programme;
2. Guarantee disease prevention and health promotion;
3. Promote evidence, right based and multisectoral responses to communicable diseases;
4. Develop a European strategic framework to tackle non communicable diseases and support national actions;
5. Ensure affordable access to quality medicinal products, care and prevention services;
6. Implement the Health in All Policies approach by compulsory health impact assessments;
7. Tackle the cross-cutting health aspects and connections with other Commission policies including the EU Green Deal and Horizon Europe;
8. Address soaring health inequalities;
9. Ensure meaningful involvement of public interest NGOs to implement the policies.
