On the 25th of October, the European Commission published its Work Programme 2017 – Delivering a Europe that protects, empowers and defends. This Work Programme sets out the key initiatives the Commission commits to delivering by the end of 2017 based on ten principles. Health does not seem to form part of the EC priorities for next year but the development of a Social Pillar of rights (to which Eurocarers has contributed) and work in the areas of youth and employment offer some windows of opportunity for advocacy.
