Employment, Social Policy, Health and Consumer Affairs Council (Luxembourg 6-7 June 2011)

Volume 528: debated on Thursday 19 May 2011

The Employment, Social Policy, Health and Consumer Affairs Council will meet on 6 and 7 June.

The presidency is likely to ask Ministers to debate the sustainability of care systems and health issues related to migration.

The presidency is also expected to propose the adoption of Council conclusions on the following:

the European pact for mental health and well-being: results and future action;

successes and challenges of European childhood immunisation and the way forward;

towards modem, responsive and sustainable health systems; and

innovation in the medical device sector.

The UK supports the adoption of these Council conclusions.

Under any other business, information will be provided from the presidency on antimicrobial resistance and on a number of conferences that took place under their presidency. The Polish delegation will give information on the priorities for their forthcoming presidency, which will run from July 2011 until the end of the year.
