EU health ministers will meet via video conference to exchange views on the role of the EU in strengthening the World Health Organization (WHO).

The role of the EU in strengthening the WHO

The debate will be based on the draft conclusions of the Council. The conclusions aim at contributing to the coordination of EU member states interventions at the resumed 73rd World Health Assembly, the decision-making body of the WHO. The EU and its member states, together with the UK, are the largest donor to the WHO.

Coordination on COVID-19 travel measures

After the debate, the German presidency of the Council will inform health ministers about the Council recommendation on a coordinated approach to the restriction of free movement in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
