Health is central in people's lives and needs to be supported by effective policies and actions in Member States, at European Union (EU) level and at a global level. The area of health is essentially the responsibility of the Member States, the role of the EU, as laid down in European treaties, is to undertake measures to supplement the work of the Member States, whilst providing European added value, particularly with regard to major health threats, issues that have a cross-border or international impact and questions relating to the free movement of goods, services and people. Accordingly, a cross-sectoral approach is required and all Community policies must therefore play a role in health protection.
