This year's European Health Forum Gastein (EHFG) asks if Europe is ready for the future? The EHFG is a high level discussion platform for key actors in European health policy offering an excellent opportunity for an exchange of experience and networking. The participants are decision-makers and experts at national, European and international levels coming from politics & administration, business & industry, civil society as well as science & academia. This outstanding field of delegates ensures the creation of a unique network in Europe. At this year's EHFG Global Health Europe will be hosting the Parallel Forum Health is Global: new health dynamics in Europe.

The Global Health Europe forum will explore topics such as:

  • Trade, migration, demographic change - how will Europe respond to the new global dynamics of health?
  • The European Union as an actor in global health: at the interface of national interest, EU policies and global responsibility
  • How can Europe ensure health for its citizens through new alliances and partnerships?
  • Instruments and mechanisms of governance: what innovations are needed in European health governance?
  • The role of European countries in setting health agendas in non-health venues, such as the WTO, G20, OECD, Council of Europe
