Conference on the Future of a Healthy Europe: Taking part in the decision-making process on health priorities

Patients rights day

The aim of the two-day conference is to contribute to providing a multi-stakeholder vision for a Healthier European Union focusing on the role played by key actors in the decision-making process on health priorities. 

The European celebration of the XVI European Patients’ Rights Day (EPRD) will be organized by Active Citizenship Network (ACN) with its traditional format of a big multi-stakeholder conference focused on the role played by key actors in the decision-making process on health priorities. In particular, just before the end of the Conference on the Future of Europe, the expectations and requests of citizens and Patients Advocacy Groups (PAGs) addressed to the institutions will be analysed:

- What has been discussed?

- Why did only a small percentage of the initiatives promoted within the CoFoE concern health issues?

- How to ensure that the priorities defined in the context of CoFoE will be incorporated in the implementation of the National Recovery and Resilience Plans (NRRPs)?

What is the level of involvement of citizens and patients’ associations in defining the implementation process of the priorities that have been identified in the health sector?

The 2022 conference will have a twofold structure: a first day, dedicated to the presentation to the EU Institutions of the outputs of the themes that emerged from health-related initiatives organized in the framework of the Conference on the Future of Europe; and a second day, focused on analysing the actual level of citizen involvement by the Member States close to the approval by the European Commission of most of the NRRPs and their implementation at national level.

EHTEL will be represented at the event by Secretary General, Marc Lange, who will advocate for a citizen-centric health data sharing approach.
