The European Health Forum Gastein (EHFG) will celebrate its 25th anniversary and take stock of the substantial accomplishments in public health over the last quarter century. At the same time, they will look forward and discuss the challenges and policy options for action urgently needed across sectors, borders, and disciplines at this watershed moment for health, security, and solidarity. This is the window of opportunity to co-create a true European Health Union! “Building forward better” requires fundamental transformation of the way our societies operate – and this can only be achieved through peace in Europe, supported by political will, collaboration, and unity. Only by shooting for the moon and leaving “business as usual” firmly in the past do we stand a chance of succeeding in our mission to build a healthier, more equitable, and sustainable future for all.
This hybrid conference takes place in Gastein from 27 – 29 September 2022 to help chart a bold course for realising a true European Health Union!
