"The EU Health Forum serves as an information and consultation mechanism to ensure that the aims of the Community's health strategy are made clear to the public and respond to their concerns. It provides an opportunity to representative organisations of patients, health professionals and other stakeholders, such as health service providers, to make contributions to health policy development, its implementation and the setting of priorities for action.

The EU Health Forum is composed of two complementary elements: An Open Forum as a platform for general exchange of information and for a discussion with a broader range of groups and interested parties, and a Health Policy Forum with a consistent set of member organisations, for the discussion of key policy areas."

EMA is an active member of the Health Policy Forum.

The Health Policy Forum has published a number of recommendations on topics of interest for health in the EU:


The European Public Health law Network is a network of expertise on the use of the law for the promotion and protection of public health law across the European Union plus Croatia, Turkey, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. EPHLN was established under the EU co-funded PHLawFlu Project. The purpose of the network is to facilitate the exchange of information and expertise on the use of law as a tool for public health in Europe. Although EPHLN's focus is clearly European, we feel that we can also learn a great deal from public health law experts from beyond Europe. Therefore, we welcome members from all over the world.
