Restructuring health systems: How to promote health in times of austerity?

The Conference aims to assess how the current crisis and its policy responses impact on health systems and how the crisis could be managed in the future so as to promote better health outcomes for all.

What is the cost of the crisis on populations and their health? Are the austerity measures viable or do they put health systems into a long term crisis? How can the EU and national authorities create a new way of thinking to tackle the consequences of the crisis and yet secure sustainable healthcare systems?

Commissioner Dalli, Zsuzsanna Jakab, Director for the WHO Europe, and Sanjeev Gupta, International Monetary Fund have already accepted to take part in the debate and discus with civil society organizations the impact of the crisis and the way forward.

Among others: trade unions, international national and regional authorities, social, health and environment civil society organizations, and EU decision makers are invited to the event.

Please note that due to a limited room capacity, priority will be given to the above mentioned actors.
