EPHA: A call to action: Health, civil society and the reform of economic governance
The European Public Health Alliance (EPHA) has recently launched its Health, civil society and the reform of economic governance: A call to action to encourage civil society to get involved in the reform of economic governance and the decisions taken under new frameworks such as the European Semester that affect population health and health outcomes.
This call to action uses the European Federation for Transport and the Environment (T&E) and the Social Platform as examples of how to become involved in the process.
The European Semester coordinates EU economic and fiscal policy, including taxes on environmentally harmful subsidies.
