EHFG 2020: Dancing with elephants

New partnerships for health, democracy, business

The determinants of health and well-being are often driven by the interests of big players, which are not always aligned with public health agendas. In order to purposefully engage with these giants while safeguarding the interests of people, we need to conceptualise new partnership models – learn to “dance with elephants” - but we should be careful not to get our toes crushed. The COVID-19 pandemic has put into sharp focus the current fault lines in our systems and highlighted the need for true cross-sector and cross-border collaboration.

The EHFG 2020 will address the big questions and bring to life the Gastein spirit in the virtual environment of the conference platform Brella with a mix of live sessions and on-demand content, placing a focus on an immersive conference experience, interactive participation and meaningful networking. You can review the continuously updated conference programme here and registartion is open.

Join us for the digital EHFG 2020 to learn a new dance!
