We will put citizens at the heart of the discussion about the future of healthcare in Europe, recognising that a step-change is needed in how we meet Europe’s health care needs.
We will draw on the energy, expertise and imagination of all participants to map out a transformative vision of change for health care in Europe.
The conference will take place over three days, from 5 to 7 November, including an opening plenary and press conference, expert panels and a citizen’s assembly.
New ideas, strategic insights and policy recommendations will be presented to the G20 summit from 20-21 November and to EU leaders.
Particular emphasis will be placed on the role of citizens in delivering better health outcomes for themselves and for Europe as a whole.
Transformative change means recognising that healthcare reform cannot take place in isolation from other areas of policy-making, notably education, the economy, citizenship, border control and, in the context of the EU, subsidiarity.
Recognising and exploring these interconnections will be a leitmotif of the conference, animated by the call made by Ambassador Brauzzi for an international conference on lessons learned on Europe Day, 9 May 2020 to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the Schuman Declaration.
