Jean-Yves Stenuick - Safer Pharma Programme Manager

I lead HCWH Europe’s Safer Pharma programme, which aims to reduce pharmaceutical pollution and limit its contribution to the development of antimicrobial resistance – one of the biggest public health challenges of our time that causes 700,000 deaths worldwide every year. I engage with our members and stakeholders across Europe to develop knowledge and share best practice, as well as carry out policy advocacy work at the EU level to ensure a stronger EU environmental regulatory framework on pharmaceuticals in the environment.

I hold an Advanced Master’s degree in Interdisciplinary Analysis of European Integration from the Institute for European Studies in Brussels. During my studies, I developed policy expertise within the political strategy unit of a large political group at the European Parliament, for which I monitored policy developments in key parliamentary committees.

Prior to joining HCWH Europe, I worked as Programme Manager at a Brussels-based think tank, where I engaged policymakers in shaping global change in the area of health and wellbeing on issues ranging from antimicrobial resistance to disruptive health technologies. In this role, I also developed networks and coordinated working groups to feed into the Commission’s strategic thinking.

When I am not advocating for a greener pharmaceutical sector, I am travelling the world with an old guide book or enjoying the lifestyle of Brussels, my adopted city. There is much more to the heart of Europe than Place du Lux!
