Question for written answer E-007698-17
to the Commission
Rule 130
Maria Grapini (S&D)

 Subject:  Medicines crisis in Member States
 Answer in writing 

The issue of EU citizens’ health should be an ongoing concern for both Member States and the EU institutions.

The medicines crisis continues to cause victims in many Member States.

Health has a large element of subsidiarity and we should consider that if we are a Union then we should have some leverage to take action when there is a crisis in a Member State that cannot be resolved at national level.

Solidarity should also be shown within the EU, not only towards third countries.

What action can the Commission take to help resolve the medicines crisis that is affecting people’s lives?
