18th European Health Forum Gastein

Wednesday, 30 September 2015

The European Health Forum Gastein is an important health-related event in the European Union and a meeting point for experts from different fields within the health system. It differs greatly from other events which are generally focused on very specific areas.
 

The event will take place from 30 September to 2 October in Gastein.
 

Main theme

Securing Health in Europe; Balancing priorities, sharing responsibilities

Current health systems need to safeguard past gains in health while responding to new threats and opportunities which call for a strengthened European public health response. Though public health security remains high on the agenda, effective health systems go beyond that and are challenged also to engage with issues that lie outside the health sector. Functioning social systems and a resilient economy strongly contribute to a healthy Europe.
 

Other topics

Topics are:

  • Health in All Policies
  • Healthy ageing of workers
  • The power of data
  • Facing multimorbidity: Challenges and responses
  • Implementation of comprehensive primary care
  • Global health and health systems strengthening
  • Health threats response
  • Health information
  • Access to new medicines in Europe
