EUROCAM is a network of European organisations representing CAM patients, medical doctors practising CAM, trained CAM practitioners and veterinarians practising CAM. The aim of EUROCAM is to promote the contribution of CAM - Complementary and Alternative Medicine - to better health in Europe.
The objective of EUROCAM is to promote and facilitate CAM’s role in maintaining citizens' health, highlight the health promotion and illness prevention aspects of CAM for EU public health policy and programmes, to advance the accessibility, affordability and availability of CAM, and generally promote CAM at European level.
Freedom of Choice Under Threat: What Can European Citizens Do? This is the title of a conference on 7 November 2016 addressing some key questions such as
- Why is freedom of choice a crucial issue and a challenge for the cultural development of Europe?
- How can freedom of choice be promoted and guaranteed, and what can European citizens do about it?
