Health and Wealth

Friday, 05.10.2012 | 16:00 - 19:00 | Congress Centre 2

Organised by the European Patients’ Forum in cooperation with Sanofi

Investing in health, increasing equity and wealth

The current global financial, economic and social crises have resulted in substantial cuts in healthcare budgets. These cut-back measures are highly likely to impact on innovation in health care as well as increase health inequalities and threaten well-being. New models and new business approaches for investing in health are required to support economic growth and Europe-based research.

The aim of the event is to reflect on the current situation and to sketch out concrete future perspectives which will help improve citizens' health, ensure equity and protect Europe's innovation and competition capacity. The first session will focus will be on how new business models can stimulate investment and growth; the second on how equity, patients’ rights and responsibilities can be balanced.
