Health Priorities of the future Austrian Presidency (July – December 2018)
As Austria is getting ready to take over the Presidency of the Council of the EU on 1st July 2018, Vienna is narrowing its focus on health and it is prioritising 3 dossiers above all else:
- The European Commission Proposal for a Council Recommendation on Strengthened Cooperation against Vaccine Preventable Diseases;
- The EU’s position for the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC);
- The Health Technology Assessment (HTA) proposal.
The Austrian Presidency of the EU will have 6 months to sort out these dossiers before Romania takes over the Presidency on the 1st January 2019.
More information will be available shortly on the official website of the Austrian Presidency
