El comissari Kyriakides a Lisboa per promoure la Unió Europea de la Salut, el Pla Combatre el Càncer i l'Estratègia de Vacunes de la UE




El dimecres 3 de novembre, la comissària de salut i seguretat alimentària, Stella Kyriakides (A la foto) will be in Lisbon, Portugal, where she will meet the Portuguese Health Minister Marta Temido. Discussions will focus on the EU Vaccines Strategy and the roll-out of the national vaccination campaign in Portugal, as well as the way forward on the proposals under the European Health Union and Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan. The meeting will be followed by a visit to the Portuguese Institute of Oncology and a debate with the public on ‘Unió Europea de la Salut: prevenir, cuidar i col·laborar‘, part of the Conferència sobre el futur d’Europa, que es pot seguir aquí i aquí.

El mateix dia, el comissari parlarà a les a xat al foc at the Web Summit on ‘Back to the future: Europe post-COVID’. On 4 November, the Commissioner will visit the Champalimaud Foundation and deliver a speech at the Advanced Breast Cancer Sisena Conferència Internacional de Consens.

Ahead of the visit, Commissioner Kyriakides said: “The EU Vaccines Strategy is a great example of the power and efficacy of European collaboration and solidarity in action. In Portugal, over 90% of the adult population is now fully vaccinated, which is truly impressive and a great achievement. Portugal’s vaccination campaign has demonstrated the effect of vaccines, with the rate of COVID-19 infections and hospitalisations having gone down – it is an example to follow. However, winter is around the corner, other respiratory viruses are re-appearing, and the pandemic is far from over. It is also more crucial that we continue addressing the impact of COVID-19 on other major health challenges, including cancer where decisive and ambitious action will be taken through Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan.”

The visit is part of the Commission’s ongoing efforts and Commissioner Kyriakides’s commitment to support the roll-out of Member States’ national COVID-19 vaccination campaigns and address the impact of COVID-19 on other diseases.
