Rise like a phoenix

Health at the heart of a resilient future for Europe

The COVID-19 pandemic has upended lives and radically altered the political landscape. While we continue to fight fires and look towards an uncertain future, amidst the ashes of this unprecedented crisis there lies an opportunity for renewal and rebirth: health is having a rare moment in the political spotlight.

At the digital European Health Forum Gastein 2021, decision-makers, experts and community members from the public and private sector, civil society and science and academia came together to envision how we can build resilience to prevail over current and future challenges and fight for solidarity and equity, within Europe and on the global stage.
