The third EU Health Programme 2014-2020 aims at encouraging innovation in healthcare, increasing the sustainability of health systems, improving the health of EU citizens and protecting them from cross-border health threats. The programme builds on the two previous programmes covering the periods 2003-2008 and 2008-2013. Compared to the former programmes the new one concentrates support on a smaller number of activities in priority areas, in line with the Europe 2020 strategy. The programme has four overarching objectives which seek to:
Promote health, prevent diseases and foster supportive environments for healthy lifestyles taking into account the 'health in all policies' principle;
Protect Union citizens from serious cross-border health threats;
Contribute to innovative, efficient and sustainable health systems;
Facilitate access to better and safer healthcare for Union citizens.
