First Program Announcement: What to Expect from the European Health Forum Gastein (EHFG) 2019?

2nd to 4th October 2019, Bad Hofgastein, Austria.

In 2019, the EHFG aims to highlight ideas and debates that challenge the status quo and look beyond the classic spheres of health policy. We call on all partners and participants to contribute to a transformative vision for European policy and society that puts people’s health and well-being in the centre. 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.

Even where robust frameworks and roadmaps are in place, change often does not take place fast enough. The era of disruption is upon us and health actors need support to develop their capacity to navigate its challenges, and to embrace provocative action for change in domains where we are lacking momentum to expedite organic transformation. This is a time of new beginnings, with a newly elected European Parliament, a new European Commission and a newly elected Regional Director for WHO/Europe on the horizon. The question is therefore timely: how to catalyse transformative change and instrumentalise provocative action for climate, health and societal well-being?

Have a look at our freshly published  First Program Announcement.
