Gesundheit und Qualität der Gesundheitsversorgung genießen bei den Europäern oberste Priorität.
Die Gesundheitssysteme in der EU unterscheiden sich teilweise erheblich. Trotz dieser Unterschiede finden sich jedoch auch starke Ähnlichkeiten, und die Mitgliedstaaten stehen in der Gesundheitspolitik jetzt und in Zukunft weitgehend vor denselben Herausforderungen.
Davon sind zwei besonders relevant. Einerseits besteht ein ständiger Bedarf, die Kosteneffizienz angesichts starker Faktoren des Strukturwandels, wie die steigende Lebenserwartung und Entwicklung neuer Technologien, zu optimieren. Andererseits gilt es, Synergieeffekten zwischen Gesundheitspolitik und anderen Politikbereichen zu finden.
Eine zukunftsorientierte Gesundheitspolitik muss nicht nur die Leistungen mittels messbarer Gesundheitsziele an die Bedürfnisse der Menschen von morgen anpassen  z.B. an die demographische Entwicklung, im Pflegebereich etc. -, sondern es ist die entscheidende Herausforderung im bestehenden System die Qualität zu steigern, eine zukunftsfähige Organisationsform zu entwickeln und alle Effizienzpotenziale zu lokalisieren und auszunützen.
