Project in brief: The Third EU Health Program (2014-2020) is about improving health through encouraging cooperation between member states in order to improve health policies. The program was built based on two previous programs – 1st (2003 – 2007) and 2nd (2008 – 2013) and it aims to complement the health policies of EU member states in order to improve health, reduce inequalities, protect people from serious health hazards that are beyond the state borders, while encouraging innovation in healthcare and increasing sustainability in health systems. The working body for the implementation of the joint action for tackling inequalities in health was established following the Work Plan 2017 and within the third program of activities of the Union in the field of health (2014-2020). Among health institutions and secretariats, Institute of Social Sciences is also appointed in the working body. Institute of Social Sciences expressed interest in the work package number seven - Migrants and Health, and work package number eight - Universal Health Access for vulnerable groups. Institute of Public Health "Milan Jovanović Batut" is the leading partner.
