Join our debate “The possible impact of TTIP on social and health services” co-organised with SOLIDAR, EPHA and EPSU

On June 17, from 14 to 17:30, Social Platform will host a debate on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), jointly organised with SOLIDAR, the European Public Health Alliance (EPHA) and the European Federation of Public Services Unions (EPSU).

The debate will focus on the possible impacts of TTIP on essential services such as social and health ones. So far we have heard from the Commission that they haven't discussed yet with the US negotiators what will be the treatment of these services. Will they be included, excluded? Will there be exemptions? What are the links between the TTIP and the new public procurement directive that recognises a simplified regime for social, health and other services directly provided to the person?

The draft program is available here. Priority will be given to the members of Social Platform, their members and EPSU. If you are interested in participating, please contact by email Francesca Parente. We will confirm your registration depending on the availability of seats.
