The National Mental Health Strategy (Nemzeti Lelki Egészség Stratégia), mentioned in sub-chapter 7.5 Mental Health should be stated here. The plans for the national program for 2014-2020 are currently available on the internet, but concrete plans for implementation are still missing.

The National Health Programme is currently in progress. The aim of the programme is to enable Hungarian citizens, with broad governmental, professional and NGO support, to achieve a healthier life and live longer. The programmes are linked to the WHO's 'Health 2020' European Strategy.

The national health programme of several EU Member States and the relevant European professional guidelines have been prepared. The programme includes the National Mental Health Programme and the National Child Health Programme, whose main target groups are children and youth. At present, the drafts of action plans for two years of National Health Programmes are being prepared by experts from relevant professional organisations.
