The MEP Interest Group on Integrative Medicine & Health

The Interest Group promotes Integrative Medicine & Health in all European Parliament public health policy. Integrative Medicine & Health brings conventional biomedicine and complementary medicine together in a coordinated way, focuses on the whole person and considers the individual in its physical, psychological, spiritual, social and environmental context. It offers an inclusive approach which meets the demand of EU citizens for a holistic, patient-centred approach in medicine.

Currently, one in two EU citizens uses complementary medicine in one form or another as part of their healthcare, either alongside or as an alternative to conventional biomedical care. This high demand is not yet reflected in EU or national health policy or provision.

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR), the increasing prevalence of Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs), soaring healthcare costs and dealing with the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic are major challenges facing the health sector right across the EU. Integrative Medicine & Health can contribute significantly to meet these challenges.

We look forward to seeing you online.

Best regards,

Secretariat of the MEP Interest Group on Integrative Medicine & Health
