Stakeholder coalition calls for legislative refinement of the EHDS

Brussels, 4 December 2023 - The signatories of this statement are key stakeholder organisations representing patients, health professionals, researchers and industrial actors in the healthcare ecosystem at both European Union (EU) and Member State level. Collective stakeholder expertise and diverse perspectives could help the legislators to navigate complex challenges in the drafting of the Regulation for a European Health Data Space (EHDS). We reiterate that adequate resources will be required for the appropriate and effective implementation of the EHDS at all levels. In support of the significant legislative work and as follow-up to the stakeholder coalition’s first and second joint statements on the subject, this new statement provides reflections and recommendations to facilitate the resolution of five key challenges that will define the impact of the EHDS and its ability to reach the intended policy goals.
