The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have a deep and lasting impact on all those touched by the virus, transforming our societies, healthcare systems and the way we live our lives. The European Commission is bringing experts together for two days to see what we can learn from our reaction to the pandemic and how we can better prepare ourselves for future health threats.
Policymakers, public health experts, healthcare professionals and patient representatives will meet in Luxembourg to shape EU policy going forward and to build a stronger European Health Union together.
