Let’s solve challenges together at EHMA 2020!
European health systems are navigating through a period where challenges and opportunities have never been greater or starker. While public finances remain constrained, innovation in technology and evolution in therapeutic possibilities have reached unprecedented highs. And every day we get closer to full exploitation of opportunities given by big data, artificial intelligence and robotics.
At the same time, population dynamics are unstoppable, with sharp acceleration in chronic diseases, aging and frailty. In this perspective, we are collectively faced by the need to generate shared awareness, sense of urgency and visions for transformations and changes within health sectors, healthcare systems, organisations, and for role development of managers and clinical and professional leaders.
The focus of this year´s conference on 9-11 June 2020 in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, will be on framing the new paradigms and visions that can reconcile health needs generated by the context with capacity determined by health system reconfigurations and players’ development.
This year´s theme of the European Health Economics Association Conference will be “Health Economics for sustainable welfare systems”. The conference will be held on 7-10- July 2020 in Oslo, Norway.
The purpose of the EUHEA is to promote cooperation among all national health economics associations and groups in Europe as well as to profile and foster health economics at European universities.
July 24th marks International Self-Care Day, an annual opportunity to put a spotlight on self-care and the benefit effective self-care can bring to both individuals and healthcare systems as a vital foundation of health. International Self-Care Day was initiated back in 2011, and takes place every year on 24th July demonstrating the importance of self-care to be employed 24 hours a day, and 7 days a week.
For successful universal healthcare, we need to enable people to be active decision-makers in their own healthcare rather than passive recipients. Effective self-care ensures people are empowered to prevent, test for and treat their health conditions themselves. The number of health issues that can be handled through self-care continues to grow. Facilitating improved levels of health literacy ensures people can take charge of their own health with evidence-based self-care interventions.
