The Commission “Guide for Health Investments under the European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) 2014-2020” has been developed for public authorities in Member States and regions concerned with the management and implementation of ESIF funding in health. The Guide can be useful to a broader group of stakeholders interested in structural funds and health. The Guide is part of a series of thematic guidance published by the Commission in 2014.
The Commission Guide provides policy guidance for key areas of investment in health, pointing at suggested lines of intervention. It does not offer specific recommendations for any Member State nor favours particular sectorial areas. The scope and priorities for ESIF were defined by Member States in coordination with the Commission.
