First edition of the Health-EU newsletter
Friday 7 September 2007Welcome to the first edition of the Health-EU newsletter!
From Commissioner Kyprianou, Commissioner for Health
The internet is used more and more by people as a source of information for their own health. Last year nearly half of all people in the EU used the internet regularly and, according to Eurobarometer surveys, most internet users browse the net when they have a health concern. In 2006 we launched the Public Health Portal to provide high-quality, user-friendly information on health to citizens. Building on this, the Health-EU newsletter will allow readers to receive the latest news and developments on health from a range of sources across Europe in all European languages.
