Invitational workshop: Paving the path to the health systems of the future health

Friday 22 November, 11:10 - 12:10, Room Sormiou


Organised by:

Chafea, EUPHA and DG SANTE


Reforming health systems is a priority that is being addressed at local, regional, national and European level. Health system reforms are complex; they require political commitment, know-how, skills and sustained financial investments. The EU can provide support in various stages of such reforms: from initiation to design and to implementation. The session will describe the main EU tools for this, such as the European Semester, programmes that can offer technical assistance, as well as programmes that provide opportunities for financial support.


Moderator: Anne-Marie Yazbeck, Chafea
