EHFG 2020: Dancing with elephants

New partnerships for health, democracy, business

EHFG 2020: Update with regard to COVID-19

The current COVID-19 pandemic represents an unprecedented challenge for governments and health systems, and has impacted the health, lives and livelihood of millions of people worldwide.

Now more than ever, new models of partnership working and learning from each other’s experiences are needed, and the EHFG remains committed to offering a Forum for candid exchange on the most pressing issues of our time in health and societal well-being.

We are planning for the EHFG 2020 to take place in Bad Hofgastein, Austria, from 30 Sept - 2 Oct as originally announced. We will closely monitor developments, prioritise the safety of all participants and staff by following advice from relevant authorities, and will keep you informed.

The EHFG 2020 session partnership call for proposals is still open, and we look forward to reviewing your ideas for sessions that address the ‘elephants’ in European health and health policy. We particularly welcome session ideas that discuss issues related to the COVID-19 outbreak. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have questions about the selection process and conditions for session partnership.
