4 - 6 October, Bad Hofgastein
While efforts to foster inter-sectoral cooperation on health have been successful at times, real challenges remain. The discussions at the 20th EHFG aimed to dig deeper, taking the technocratic concept of HiAP to the political level of policy implementation – Health in All Politics.
Against a background of increasing populism and a post-truth era across Europe and beyond, the challenge to the EHFG on its twentieth anniversary is to build bridges between the different policy areas, guided by the European values of universality, access to good quality care, equity and solidarity.
Our plenary sessions this year looked at the politics of health in the EU and its Member States, considering the past, sounding out the present, and testing the future. From the historian’s perspective to today’s decision-makers and tomorrow’s thinkers – join us in debating the EU from a health perspective.
Over 500 participants, including ministers of health and senior experts form public and private sector, research and academia and representatives of the civil society gathered once again to discuss these highly important issues. We are happy to provide you with first-hand outcomes and other supporting materials of the #EHFG2017 conference.
