  Lívia Járóka (PPE), in writing. - I would like to welcome the fact that the budget for the European Union’s upcoming action programme in the field of health available to national authorities, public and private bodies, international organisations and NGOs has increased by 5.7% with regard to the current period. I truly hope that limiting the programme’s scope to areas where EU action can bring genuine added value in the healthcare sector will enhance its effectiveness and improve its performance. It is very important that granting access to healthcare for all EU citizens and reducing health inequalities by addressing the health-related, social and economic challenges remains a general objective of the programme. I would like to further welcome the proposal for developing comparable Union-wide health indicators in order to help reducing inequalities in healthcare as well as the call for conducting gender-sensitive studies, analyses, investigations and sex-disaggregated data in order to identify, disseminate and promote validated best practices for cost-effective prevention measures addressing gender-specific health conditions and diseases. It is also very important to boost health promotion policies, as well as secondary prevention, including vaccination programmes, early diagnosis and appropriate treatment with special regard to marginalised communities and equally to promote health education and patient awareness.
