OECD & EUHA to co-host a virtual event on building resilient healthcare systems in Europe

DATE February 22nd, 2023

The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and EUHA will co-host the event “Ready for the next crisis – Building resilient healthcare systems in Europe”. Panellists from different European organisations, including EUHA, will discuss the implications of a health system reform to build resilient healthcare systems.

The COVID-19 pandemic exposed major vulnerabilities in healthcare systems which were under-prepared, under-invested and under-staffed. The latter is particularly alarming, as the future shortage of healthcare professionals in Europe is estimated to increase rapidly in the following years. As a result, it has become evident the need to build a resilient healthcare system.

The OECD has developed a report on how to learn the lessons of the pandemic and build resilient health systems. In parallel to the report, EUHA adopted as a strategic priority to support the sustainability of the healthcare workforce at a European level, following the mandate of the Members’ Assembly in November 2022.

As both organisations are committed to supporting the resilience and sustainability of European healthcare, EUHA and the OECD Berlin Centre will co-host the event “Ready for the next crisis – Building resilient healthcare systems in Europe”, taking place on Wednesday, 1 March 2023, 3:00-4:30 pm CET via ZOOM. The event will include a high-level panel discussion where EUHA representatives will engage in a discussion on the implications of major health system reform.
