EHFG’s yearly strategic discussions give important direction to health policy debates on national, European, and global levels. Seize the opportunity to make an impact on highly topical issues such as:

-Global governance for health
-The public health challenges of 2050
-The path to sustainable health systems
-Communicating health
-A global personalized medicine
-Non-communicable diseases

In each forum, challenges that accompany times of austerity will be addressed, as well as the opportunities for visionary ideas and policies that such circumstances offer.

In the plenary sessions, dialogue will center on the effects recessionary budget cuts have on the health community presently and in the future. Speakers include:
-A. Stöger, Minister of Health, Austria
-J. Dalli, EU Commissioner for Health and Consumer Policy, European Commission
-Z. Jakab, Regional Director, WHO Europe
-M. McKee, Professor, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine

Workshops will examine the opportunities and demands presented by promising new approaches to healthcare. Led by experts from key stakeholders such as the European Commission, these workshops aim to explore crucial topics relating to the future of innovative health solutions, such as the alignment of the pharmaceutical industry with societal needs, and the role of social media in vaccination.
