"Achieving the highest attainable standard of health for all is an integral part of thriving societies, a cornerstone of well performing economies, and a shared principle of European democracies and their partner countries".

The TB Europe Coalition has, along with 47 other Civil Society Organisations, endorsed an EU Manifesto on Global Health. In the run up to the European elections of 22-25 May 2014, global health activists around the European Union joined forces to cast their messages to European political parties while they are busy defining political priorities for the next legislature.

In a little less than nine months, European citizens will choose their representatives in the European Parliament, which will in turn define the political direction of the Union. Indeed, for the first EU elections since the adoption of the Lisbon Treaty, the new European Parliament will also be able to elect the President of the European Commission for the period 2014-2018.

In order to inform European political parties on the importance of improving universal access to timely, affordable, accessible and quality health information and services, Global Health Advocates developed a Global Health Manifesto with inputs and endorsement from 48 civil society organisations working in this field across the European Union.

Together, we believe that investing in global health is a moral and economic imperative enshrined in the core values of the European Union and its vision as a global actor. The one-pager manifesto presents our main political messages and cross-cutting recommendations as a guide to the European Parliament and other Institutions’ external action and global health policies.
