The European Health Union & access to health technologies: is joint purchasing the way forward?

10 February 2022 | 12:00-13:00 | Online

This 60-minute session is the first of a European Health Union Initiative webinar series with the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies, organised in close cooperation European Health Forum Gastein.

The enduring problem of ensuring sustainable and equitable access to affordable medicines and other health technologies for all has been highlighted once again during the COVID-19 crisis. In this upcoming webinar organised in close collaboration between the European Health Union initiative and the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies, we will explore whether we can harness the recent experience of joint purchasing during the pandemic to better ensure equitable access to health technologies for diverse patient groups in the future.
