AIM feedback on the HERA
Health crises like Covid-19 are global in nature and require collaboration. This has been proven by various examples such as the help provided by the German state of Baden-Wuerttemberg to patients from Alsace in France. Such a collaboration and collective action can only work if certain powers are transferred to European level while respecting national competences. At the same time, it should be accompanied with local knowledge related to the management of health systems. There is a clear case for a stronger EU health policy that can ensure cooperative policy solutions across Member States.
