  • The objective of this Hearing was to present the results already achieved in the field of Digital Health Literacy, but also to debate with the different stakeholders the role of the different sectors in this area and to discuss next steps to fully unleash the potential of this topic. The event brought together players from the European institutions, the pharmaceutical sector, healthcare professionals, patient organisations, insurance organisations, experts and academics, as well as EESC members to discuss this topical issue.

  • In September 2016, the EESC adopted an own-initiative opinion on "The rights of live-in care workers". It was a first policy document at the European level dealing with the sector of live-in care work in Europe. As follow-up to this initiative, the EESC will carry out 5 country visits to countries of origin and destination of live-in care workers (United Kingdom, Germany, Sweden, Italy and Poland) to deepen the research on labour and work conditions of these persons and the quality of care delivery. The findings will be presented in a report to be released by the EESC later in 2018.
