The EU Parliament has voted to adopt a new programme on public health to run from 2014 to 2020.
The programme will concentrate on four main priorities:
Funding of up to 80% should be available for projects on liver disease prevention and treatment policy, including alcohol and hepatitis.
Formal agreement is still needed from the EU health ministers and this is likely to be given in April at the next meeting of the Health Council. The Commission expects to publish its first calls for proposals in late April or May. EASL will publish these calls on our website.
