The Expert Panel on Effective Ways of Investing in Health's mission is to provide sound and independent advice in the form of opinions in response to questions (mandates) submitted by the Commission on matters related to health. The opinions of the Expert Panel present the views of the independent scientists who are members of the Expert Panel. They do not necessarily reflect the views of the European Commission.
The conference will be an occasion to reflect on the Panel’s work at the end of the mandate of the current membership and, based on this experience, more broadly on the role of evidence-based expert’s advice in policy making. It will be an opportunity to take stock of the Panel’s opinions and their interaction with health policy making and exchange views and experience on developing evidence based advice.
The event will bring together a range of key experts on public health and healthcare services from institutions and professional bodies, representatives of national and EU-level independent advisory bodies, representatives of national health authorities, non-governmental organisations, academics, EU institutions and other relevant stakeholders.
EuroHealthNet's Director, Caroline Costongs, will speak during the second session on universal health coverage and access to health care.
