Europe de la santé

L'UE deviendrait-elle un Etat ? Naissance de l'Europe de la santé. La politique de la santé des Etats pourrait être coordonnée au niveau européen, avec laboratoires européens, stocks et moyens communs et médecins sans frontière. En tout cas, il semble que l'Europe libérale soit derrière nous.

Ce qu'en dit Politico :
Mark down Thursday as the soft launch for the Commission’s campaign to change its authority over health matters in the EU treaties. Its proposal to erect a €9.4 billion standalone health program in the next long-term EU budget is just the “first stage” in building a “health union,” Commission Vice President Margaritis Schinas said on Thursday. Now no one’s talking about treaty changes, he was quick to add — that would be “premature.” But, taking note of German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s declaration that “nothing is off the table” and French President Emmanuel Macron’s call for a “Europe de la sante” (or “Europe of health”), Schinas added: “If the moment is right, this will happen.”
Even without a treaty change, Brussels wants to push its powers to the limit, with capitals on board. Health Commissioner Stella Kyriakides invoked the idea of “flying doctors” on Thursday. A draft Council program from the next three EU presidencies — Germany, Portugal and Slovenia — suggests joint treatment facilities and EU-level drug development labs. And of course, after the shortages and hoarding of medical supplies that marked the beginning of the pandemic, everyone is interested in EU stockpiles.
