Smart Investment for better outcomes

Date: Wednesday, 21 March 2018 12:00 - 14:00

Venue: Friends of Europe  |  City: Brussel, Belgium

Friends of Europe is launching a reflection process on health (dis-)investment in Europe. A diverse group of stakeholders will be convened for roundtables to discuss the complementary issues of smarter investment for better health and disinvestment in health interventions that are ineffective, inefficient and outdated. These discussions will culminate in a publication summarising the highlights of each roundtable and commentary through opinion pieces from leading players in innovation for health.

This work is a follow-up on the results of a previous Friends of Europe Working Group on Health that generated recommendations for the 2014-2019 European Commission and European Parliament mandate. 21 recommendations on what the EU should start or stop doing, or do differently, were agreed on among the key health stakeholders that composed the group. A key focus of this work was to identify and highlight the need to stop doing things that are inefficient or ineffective. The proposed new series on health (dis-)investment follows directly from this recommendation.

This event is part of Friends of Europe’s Health and Wellbeing programme, which focuses on how the obstacles of vested interests and short-term political thinking can be overcome in the difficult transition to new healthcare models and systems – and how these new systems can be financed.
