Linking European and Latin American-Caribbean policy making institutions in the field of health research

EU-LAC Health is a project promoted by the European Commission. Its main goal is to define a detailed roadmap to guide policy-makers and other stakeholders on future actions to support cooperative health research between European (EU) and Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) countries.

This consensus roadmap will be developed using a policy oriented approach and taking into account the new political framework for EU-LAC collaboration in Science and Technology, in particular the new EU-CELAC (European Union – Community of Latin-American and Caribbean States) Joint Initiative for Research and Innovation. The aim of the roadmap is to provide policy-makers and Research and Development (R&D) funding bodies with new insights on how to best coordinate and fund cooperative health research between the two regions.
