Public health unit

The ‘Public health’ unit merged the ‘Prevalence, data management and content coordination’ unit (EPI) and the ‘Consequences, responses and best practices’ unit (IBS).

The mission of the new unit will be to coordinate the contribution of the Agency to a healthier Europe. This duty will be achieved by ensuring that the work done on maintaining and further developing the coverage, quantity, quality and comparability of the data collected, serve the purpose of providing support to European and national decision-makers and to professionals working in the drugs field.
