“If you are serious about health, you should be serious about nutrition”

Prof Olle Ljungvist, Chair of the European Nutrition for Health Alliance

Nutrition and nutritional care are eminently (cost) effective interventions and should therefore be a key component and integral part of any EU health initiative that strives for disease prevention, effective treatment and improved patient outcomes. MEP’s and experts strongly support a full-fledged and well funded EU4Health programme as recently proposed by EU Commission president Ursula von der Leyen. However, the desired health benefits and patient outcomes can only be achieved by including nutrition and nutritional care.
