On the 6th of November 2019, The European Institute of Women’s Health (EIWH) together with European MEP for Finland, Sirpa Pietikäinen held an information day on women’s health in the European Parliament.
The speakers included representatives from the World Health Organization (WHO), the EU Commission, Members of the European Parliament and other stakeholders.
Under the new European Commission and European Parliament, policymakers will focus on sectors crucial to growth, competitiveness and job creation. The Finnish EU Presidency’s main social and health theme is the ‘Economy of Wellbeing’ which examines gender equal economies and gender mainstreaming. Wellbeing and economic policies are closely intertwined and mutually reinforcing. Economic growth improves people’s wellbeing, and a healthy population enhance economic growth and stability.
The EIWH Information Day through expert presentations such Prof. Dr. Meryam Schouler-Ocak on the EU funded My Health Migrant project, illustrated how a comprehensive, inclusive Europe must prioritise women’s health.
