Keynote speech and conclusion by DG SANCO Commissioner Tonio Borg

Many citizens in Europe value the practice of CAM and wish to have equitable access to CAM provision. Enabling this provision requires transparent common regulation of CAM practice and training and CAM medicines across the EU.

Speakers from the CAM community and academia have been invited to make presentations outlining the role of CAM in prevention and treatment, its cost-effectiveness and efficiency, its provision, its integration into the healthcare system and its suitability for the EU’s current “Investing in Health” policy.

The meeting will offer the opportunity for policy makers and stakeholders to enter into an active dialogue on a subject that is highly relevant for the health of all EU citizens. The attendance and input of DG SANCO Commissioner Borg will make this meeting a unique event.

The meeting is hosted by Alojz Peterle MEP and Sirpa Pietikäinen MEP.
