Event Description

At a time when the European Health Union package is being implemented to enhance Member States’ and EU’s preparedness and response to a health crisis, the European Commission is reconsidering the international role of the EU in health. The new EU Global Health Strategy is set to integrate the lessons learned from the Covid-19 pandemic and strengthen international partnerships to improve health systems globally.

With the EU taking a leadership role in Global Health, it is paramount that sustained reforms and political engagement effectively address health systems’ fragilities. New challenges continue to emerge and range from disease outbreaks, to the impact of the war in Ukraine, to workforce and medicines shortages. The EU Global Health strategy can bring EU’s health security legal framework closer to the international commitment for solidarity, equity and inclusivity. Kangaroo Group and AIDS Healthcare Foundation Europe are inviting you to discuss the success indicators for resilient and efficient health systems. We will also discuss which steps could the EU take as a positive leader in Global Health and how to structure an inclusive dialogue with all relevant stakeholders.
