The right to healthcare

Quality healthcare is an important step towards achieving a social European Union that ensures the well-being of its citizens!

Access to affordable, preventative and curative healthcare of high quality is thus also included in the European Pillar of Social Rights but unfortunately far from being a reality all over the EU. 

On the European Commission’s website you can read more about the European Pillar of Social Rights and how it fits within the other priorities of the Commission. Do you think healthcare is given the central role it should have? Are there any other rights you don’t see reflected in the list? Can you identify one of the principles that is especially important to you?
