Resilient and Innovative Health Systems for Europe

Friday, 04.10.2013 | 15:00 - 17:00

Organised by International Forum Gastein

The future development of health and health systems will be at the core of this year’s EHFG. We would like to build on last year’s topic of Health in an Age of Austerity by taking the discussion further and asking: “What can we learn from the current financial and political crisis and how can we react in a resilient and innovative way for better population health and more effective health systems?” Recent struggles with the impact of the crisis have shown us the urgent need to rethink current policies and approaches.

In the plenary sessions we will address the following questions:

  • What are the key strategies to make health systems resilient?
  • What are the most important innovations to promote health system performance and resilience?
  • How can decision makers best introduce and implement these innovations?
