EU gets more clout in vaccine procurement and public health emergencies

This article was originally published in Scrip

Executive Summary

New rules just approved in the EU have cleared the way for member states to jointly procure vaccines and other medical products for use in the event of a flu pandemic, Escherichia coli outbreaks and other cross-border health emergencies. They will also allow the EU to declare a public health emergency independently from the World Health Organization, so that legislative actions can be triggered more quickly.
