[SIDE EVENT: EHFG in EP talks]
25 June 2018, Brussels
The EHFG uniquely comes to Brussels to kick-off the 2018 discussions with an event in the European Parliament on 25 June. Hosted by Karin Kadenbach MEP, the speakers will reflect on the EHFG’s 2018 theme, HEALTH AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT – BOLD POLITICAL CHOICES FOR AGENDA 2030. Against the backdrop of a turbulent political climate, there is a need for decisive political action and strong commitments to ensure Europe’s health systems are fit for purpose to maintain and adjust to the health needs of Europeans. At a crucial time for making the case for health being a key concern for European actors and institutions, the 21st EHFG, taking place from 3-5 October 2018, calls for bold political choices and strong commitments to improve health for all in the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals.
