Organ Donation and Transplantation in Europe - Are We Meeting the Needs of Patients?

Date: Tuesday, 25 June 2019 16:30 - 18:30

Venue: Renaissance Brussels Hotel

The European Kidney Health Alliance (EKHA) is delighted to announce the 2019 annual European Kidney Forum, which will take place on 25 June in Brussels. The focus of this year’s Forum will be to foster debate on organ donation and transplantation amongst renowned experts, patients and policymakers. 

Exceptionally, this year’s edition of the Forum extends beyond kidney health, with the aim of stimulating a dialogue across all organ transplantation domains. This reflects reinvigorated political interest to advance on organ donation and transplantation in the EU given EKHA’s selection and leadership of a Thematic Network on Organ Donation and Transplantation within DG SANTE’s EU Health Policy Platform. 

The event will explore the challenges faced by Member States, including how to increase availability of organs, how to enhance the efficiency and accessibility of transplant systems whilst ensuring quality and safety and finally how to increase public awareness and trust. 

The interactive format of the event provides an exceptional opportunity to shape future policy for organ donation and transplantation in Europe, as the ideas and insights generated from the discussions will inform the Thematic Network’s key recommendations; these recommendations will subsequently be put forward in a stakeholder-led Joint Statement, a political declaration which will be presented in October to the European Commission, national policymakers and relevant healthcare organisations

We anticipate participants from across Europe, representing EU and national patient & community representatives, medical societies, national experts, ministries and competent authorities, the European Commission, Members of the European Parliament and industry partners. 

We are looking forward to welcoming you on the day !

The event will be followed by a cocktail reception and a dinner.
