On 20th October, the EP Interest group on Carers met to address “Carers in the European Semester Process”, in the European Parliament in Brussels.
With the clear support from hosting MEPs (MEPs Heinz Becker, Jean Lambert, Marian Harkin and Sirpa Pietikainen), the meeting aimed to highlight the focus on health and long term care that the European Semester has and discuss how this channel could be used to place a stronger focus on carers and identify measures and requirements to achieve it.
