The European Health Forum Gastein is the health policy event in Europe.

4 - 6 October, Bad Hofgastein

A major feature of the EHFG is its broad range of topics: issues such as the refugee crisis and its impact on health systems are just as current as topics like the affordability of innovative medicines. Thus, the Gastein Forum is a meeting place for experts from different sections of the health system and beyond, and is fundamentally different from events which are specialised in highly restricted areas.

Topic tracks - the EHFG 2017 movies

We have invited our participants and speakers to discuss how we can move forward in several concrete areas: Health in All Policies, Health systems, Access to medicines and Innovation, Big Data & ICT. We are pleased to share with you first results.
