WHO Europe established a high-level Pan-European Commission on Health and Sustainable Development to review policy priorities in Europe around health while drawing on lessons learnt from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The European Allergy and Asthma Youth Parliament participated in a survey aimed at youth organisations to bring the voice of young patients living with allergy and asthma. Their submission was based on their own EU policy recommendations launched in December 2020.

The final report of the Commission, entitled ‘Drawing light from the pandemic: A new strategy for health and sustainable development’ outlines the Commission’s conclusions with a focus on creating a One Health approach for Europe, and to support and improve health governance at the nation, European and global levels.
