Crisis and Opportunity - Health in an Age of Austerity

03-05 October 2012, Bad Hofgastein

Archive EHFG 2012

In times of austerity and an increasing demand for healthcare due to demographic change, innovation and steadily improved technology, the question arises how health policy and healthcare systems are going to be shaped in the upcoming decades. Health communication and the future development of healthcare were two of the key topics at the 2012 Forum. We also looked at the performance of European health systems in times of economic crisis and both the challenges and new possibilities that such conditions create for healthcare. the global governance forum highlighted the interdependencies between health and other sectors and panellists asserted that globalisation and other factors mean an innovative approach is required for global health governance, which should be led by the EU and WHO championing health as a human right. A challenging non-communicable diseases session pitted industry against academia and considered a range of policy options to tackle the problem from nudge to regulation. Personalised medicine was once more high on the agenda with participants considering whether Europe could lead the way in this innovative field, and how we can prepare for the main challenges ahead.

We are happy to provide you with first-hand outcomes and other supporting materials of the #EHFG2012 conference.
