Our health in 2040

Wednesday, 01.10.2014 | 09:00 - 11:00

Organised by the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM), Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport, the Netherlands

Four scenarios on future public health

In the coming years, life expectancy will continue to rise, with large differences between population groups. More people will live with a chronic disease and healthcare costs will increase. What does this mean for the future of public health? Which of these trends do we want to tackle first? People differ in what they think is most important. To make Europe healthier, we need to use these differences to develop a strong strategy.

In this session, the Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) will discuss four future scenarios based on different normative perspectives on public health, each with its own challenge:

  • In the best of health: Keep everyone healthy and cure diseases
  • Everyone participates: support the ‘less able’ in society and promote participation
  • Taking personal control: stimulate autonomy and freedom of choice
  • Healthy prosperity: Keep healthcare affordable
