Wednesday 20 February | 15:00 to 19:00 |European Parliament| Room 6Q1

Hosted by  PACT in collaboration with the MEP Interest Group on Access to Healthcare

The purpose of the meeting is to gather various stakeholders, current MEPs, EU institutions’ representatives, member states representatives and experts from different Directorates of the European Commission and Parliamentary Committees to discuss the EU cooperation in favour of more accessible health systems across the EU.

The event will offer the opportunity to showcase the achievements of the MEP Interest Group on Access to Healthcare as well as the efforts and key messages of health stakeholders to the MEPs ahead of the upcoming elections, including by giving voice to the perspectives of various PACT partners on how EU cooperation in healthcare can help improve access and reduce health inequalities.

Selected key health stakeholders will share their expectations with MEPs and EU officials for the work of the next European Parliament and Commission representatives, and thus, set the ground for the PACT Conference where more detailed priorities can be outlined.

We are pleased to say that among the confirmed speakers for the event are the Director-General of DG SANTE, Ms. Anne Bucher as well as representatives from DG CONNECT, DG RTD, DG EMPL, EuroHealthNet and other health stakeholders - Partners of PACT (including patient organisations, healthcare professionals, public health NGOs, umbrella trade associations, industry representatives and academia) (for more information on the speakers please find the updated agenda attached).
