European Programme of Work – ‘United Action for Better Health in Europe’

The European Programme of Work (EPW) sets out a vision of how the WHO Regional Office for Europe can support countries in our region better in meeting citizens' expectations about health. It is not an exhaustive list of all the actions and health areas that WHO covers but rather describes a new way of working to close the gaps in health outcomes throughout our region. It aligns the work of WHO/Europe with the triple billion targets, while supporting countries in their commitments to implement the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Global Action Plan for Healthy Lives and Well-Being for All.
