This paper concerns the role of the European Commission within the European Community and in particular its action in the area of health. Initiatives have been taken in the following areas: (i) the protection of workers; (ii) the protection of the environment; (iii) the safety and efficiency of medicine; (iv) the inspection of food. Specific activities in the field of public health have been developed, including programmes on cancer and AIDS. Action taken in the area of health not only concerns prevention and research into causes and epidemiology, but also ways of improving the Community's collaboration with other international organisations.
