Passing of MEP Véronique Trillet-Lenoir


ECDA members are very saddened to learn about the unfortunate news of the untimely passing of Véronique Trillet-Lenoir, an invaluable member of the European Parliament and a relentless advocate for the health and well-being of European citizens.

Véronique’s unwavering dedication and tireless efforts to champion improved EU policies for better healthcare and quality of life, in particular to support better prevention and management of chronic diseases, stand as a shining example of commitment. Her passion for creating positive change was matched by her determination to make a lasting impact.

On behalf of ECDA, we consider ourselves fortunate to have had the privilege of working closely with her, witnessing firsthand the depth of her dedication. As we mourn her loss, let us also celebrate her accomplishments and remember the indelible mark she has left on the path towards a healthier and more prosperous Europe – including her significant work to shape the Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan, to improve health promotion and the response to chronic disease risk factors in Europe; and her support to more integrated approaches to chronic disease care.

In this difficult moment, on behalf of ECDA, we extend our heartfelt condolences to her family, colleagues and her loved ones.
