EU Health Summit report
The second edition of the EU Health Summit “Time for Action” (26 October 2020) sought to put forward an action plan to implement 10 recommendations jointly developed by the 33 EU Health Coalition partners.
Over 600 participants, together with thought leaders from the healthcare landscape, including Commissioner Stella Kyriakides, German Health Minister Jens Spahn and Andrea Ammon, Director of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), discussed concrete actions to be implemented at regional, national and EU level.
Throughout the Summit, particular attention was paid to the lessons learnt from the COVID-19 pandemic and how to translate these into a political vision capable of maximising collaboration and ensuring a healthy and equitable future for everyone in Europe.
The 2020 EU Health Summit was a catalyst that enabled participants to reach a common understanding of the collaborative and concrete actions that all parties should take to improve Europeans’ health and sustainability in health systems going forward.
