Parliamentary questions
20 June 2012
E-006094/2012
Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 117
Angelika Werthmann (NI)

 Subject: Malnutrition in Europe
 Answer(s) 

The increase in poverty and malnutrition in a number of Member States as a result of the economic crisis has meant that women are a particularly vulnerable group.

1. In the Commission’s view, should appropriations from the European Social Fund be increased relative to the previous financial framework in order to meet food support needs?

2. What can the Commission do to improve nutritional care in all types of care facilitý, such as hospitals and care homes?

3. If malnutrition is associated with increased morbidity, prolonged hospital stays and higher healthcare costs, what impact will this have on the EU budget, and what will its impact be in social terms?

4. What health and nutrition strategies does the Commission intend to implement with a view to preventing undernourishment and malnutrition?
