EHFG 2020: Dancing with elephants New partnerships for health, democracy, business

The European Health Forum Gastein is an independent, non-partisan organisation, founded in 1998 as a European health policy conference.

The aim of the Forum is to provide a neutral platform for the discussion and advancement of health policy in the EU and beyond. Its founding principle is the equal representation of all stakeholders from the fields of public health and healthcare.

In light of the latest available information about the COVID-19 pandemic and considering ongoing uncertainties around the risks of physical gatherings this autumn, the EHFG board has decided to adapt this year's format:

  • The EHFG 2020 will take place as a digital event.
  • The EHFG 2021 will take place again as a physical conference in autumn 2021.
  • EHFG satellite events and webinars will help us stay connected as a global community throughout the year.


Under the main theme, ‘Dancing with elephants - New partnerships for health, democracy, business’, the EHFG 2020 will address the relevant relationships between health and commercial, economic and political agendas. We will place particular emphasis on topics that are crucial in the COVID-19 context, such as health systems’ emergency preparedness and response, European collaboration and solidarity, the ‘infodemic’ during the COVID-19 period, and the impact of this crisis on our societies and constitutional democracies as a whole.

The EHFG 2020 digital edition will bring to life the Gastein spirit in a virtual environment, and offer a mix of live sessions and streams, recorded materials, and opportunities to digitally network and brainstorm with other participants as well as actively contribute to live discussions.
