Health | Irish participation in EU action on diabetes and cardiovascular Health

To ask the Minister for Health if Ireland will be participating in the European Union joint action on diabetes and cardiovascular disease initiative; and if he will make a statement on the matter.


The EU4Health Programme mandates a wide range of support to health policies and actions. The EU4Health annual work plans are structured around four overarching strands – crisis preparedness, health promotion & disease prevention, health systems & healthcare workforce, and digital – with a cross-cutting priority on cancer. My Department participates actively in the EU4Health Steering Group and Programme Committee and, together with its aegis bodies including the Health Service Executive and Health Research Board, works to bring possible support measures under EU4Health to the attention of health authorities and eligible stakeholders.

Participation in the 2022 EU4Health Programme joint action on diabetes and cardiovascular disease initiative is currently under consideration by officials in my department.
