Health sans frontiers

04-06 October 2006, Bad Hofgastein

The 9th European Health Forum Gastein (EHFG), which took place from 4 to 7 October in Bad Hofgastein, was a complete success. With nearly 600 participants from 41 countries, it was the best attended forum so far. The range of topics was also impressive, with 20 plenary sessions, fora and workshops held. Due to the large number of individual events, it was possible to cover the diverse range of aspects of European health care policy better than ever.
A range of timely and urgent topics were discussed within the framework of the general theme "Health sans frontiers", among them health policy innovation, healthcare infrastructure, health professional migration, pandemics and European Health Technology Assessment.
