To intensify cooperation in the field of healthcare, the Eurometropolis envisages the creation of a common health care zone.  Cooperation agreements now exist between certain French and Belgian hospitals. In parallel, the "Services for Citizens" TWG wishes to define directions for cross-border cooperation with regard to awareness raising and   prevention. Finally, a reflection on the way elderly and disabled people are received  is currently underway in order to optimise the way they are dealt with throughout the territory in years to come.
