EHFG 2019: A healthy dose of disruption? Transformative change for health and societal well-being
Health and Sustainable Development (Bold political choices for Agenda 2030) – Since its foundation in 1998 the European Health Forum Gastein (EHFG) conference has developed into a key annual event, bringing together, politicians, senior decision-makers, representatives of interest groups, and experts in the field of public health and healthcare.
Come and join us for the 22nd EHFG, and help build capacity to navigate a better future for health in Europe in these volatile times.
While we have made considerable advances in health, there are a number of areas that seem to be at a stalemate despite ample evidence on how to move forward. Examples include the topic of health reforms in general; tackling AMR; addressing health inequalities; advancing primary healthcare and making universal health coverage a reality for all. Even where robust frameworks and roadmaps are in place, for example, to deliver on the Agenda 2030 Goals, often change does not happen fast enough. The era of disruption is upon us, and provocative action can catalyze change in areas where we are lacking momentum and leadership to expedite organic transformation.
