Abstract: The presidency of the European Council rotates among the EU member states every 6 months. During this 6-month period, the presidency chairs meetings at every level in the Council. Member states holding the presidency work together in groups of three, called 'trios'. This system was introduced by the Lisbon Treaty in 2009. The trio prepares a common agenda determining the topics and major issues that will be addressed by the Council over an is-month period. Malta's stint concludes the current 'Ii'lo of Presidencies, preceded by Netherlands and Slovakia. This editorial will discuss two important health policies, relating to childhood obesity and cooperation between health systems.
