The European Health Forum Gastein is the health policy event in Europe.
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.
It is always a pleasure to go to the Gastein Forum – it is inspiring to find myself among main contributors to the debate on health. The first time I came to the Forum, I was Minister of Health in Lithuania during the country's Presidency – it reinforced me a lot in the work I was then overtaking. The second time, I tested my three "Ps" approach (prevention, promotion, protection) and one of the Young Gasteiners helped me to find the fourth "P": Participation. The EHFG is truly the place to share stimulating ideas and discuss topical health issues.
The EHFG is a perfect setting to discuss the interface between European and global health challenges.
Like no other event in Europe, the Gastein Forum is a unique place to discuss health policy. (…) It has been a tremendous learning experience to actively participate in the Forum and the discussions that are only possible in Bad Hofgastein.
The benefits of getting involved in our conference reach far beyond the Gastein Valley. About 30 journalists from a variety of countries and different media outlets attend the EHFG each year – and even more follow from abroad. Still in doubt whether what was discussed in Gastein really matters? Below you can find selected press releases, clippings, and opinion pieces.
In this section you will find press releases by the European Health Forum Gastein, as well as press releases by our partners - during the 20th EHFG conference, 4-6 October 2017.
