CHES Annual Lecture

Monday, 21 November 2022


Frank Vandenbroucke
Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Social Affairs and Public Health, Belgium


Elizabeth Kuiper
Associate Director and Head of the Social Europe and Well-being programme

The European Policy Centre is pleased to invite you to the CHES Annual Lecture, which will be held in person at the European Policy Centre, Rue du Trône 14-16 (3rd floor), 1000 Brussels.

The COVID-19 pandemic placed health high on the EU agenda. This crisis, along with the war in Ukraine, has increased the significance of the EU’s role in health and highlighted health inequalities across the EU. Research has shown that both across and within European countries, differences in health status mirror the unequal distribution of its main socio-economic, behavioural and environmental determinants. This generates significant health disparities across populations, thereby reducing the capacity of the most disadvantaged groups to access healthcare services and maintain good health.

At this CHES Annual Lecture of 2022, Belgian Minister Frank Vandenbroucke will discuss the role of the European Union and member states in tackling health inequalities. The discussion will focus on the instruments at the member state and EU levels that address health inequalities, including initiatives announced under the European Health Union.
