Main theme of the 18th European Health Forum Gastein


European-Health-Forum-Gastein-maintheme30th September to 2nd October 2015, Bad Hofgastein, Austria

This month we are excited to share the main theme for this year’s conference with you:

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.

Mark your calendars! 18th European Health Forum Gastein
