Public expectations and EU commitment on health and social security

According to a new Eurobarometer survey of the European Parliament on ‘perceptions and expectations’, approximately two thirds of EU citizens would like the EU to intervene more in health and social security. The differences across Member States are significant, with the strongest support for increased EU action in Cyprus (87%) and Romania (82%), and the weakest support in Denmark (46%), Austria and Finland (48%). Exactly half of EU citizens surveyed evaluate current EU action in health and social security as insufficient. There is a gap in some Member States between citizens’ expectations for EU involvement and their perception of the current involvement, but not in all.
