SIP Strategy for 2019 and Next Steps

Although the EP elections are likely to change the Parliament’s set-up fundamentally, engagement at EU level will continue and continuity will also be provided through the many institutional connections made during SIP’s turn as Thematic Network on the EU Health Policy Platform.

Following debates and interactive sessions at the SIP Steering committee, participants agreed that there is a need to investigate new opportunities arising from the changing  EU political landscape. The work in Brussels with the European Commission, focusing especially on research and keeping pain on the agenda, will continue. Once the new European Parliament is elected and settled, outreach to new and old MEPs will also continue. The EU level activity will lay the foundation for national work such as the engagement with the Council Presidencies held by countries that already have a commitment to pain policy.
