Health determinants: environment
The European Union has an active policy against external factors which could affect the health of European citizens. It thus intends to offer access to healthcare for all, better quality care and more efficient national healthcare systems. It also aims to tackle the effects of environmental factors on human health, specifically air and noise pollution. Moreover, the Union plans to limit the exposure of European citizens to electromagnetic fields in order to protect them from the harmful effects of such exposure. Finally, every effort is made to detect cancers.
