The research activities of the Department of International health are embedded in the program “Comparative Health” within CAPHRI. The research vision can be summarised in the following mission statement that was developed by all INTHEALTH staff during a participatory group process:
We take interdisciplinary perspectives on health in the process of European Integration and Europeanisation.
Recent research projects
EU Member States need to cooperate and coordinate their efforts regarding rare diseases; having 27 separate national approaches is inefficient and ineffective.
This is especially important for rare diseases, because patient numbers are low and resources are limited and scattered.
Acting at EU level can result in economies of scale and support the efforts made by each country.
