HEALTH AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT – BOLD POLITICAL CHOICES FOR AGENDA 2030

EHFG 2018 – Second Programme Announcement


2018 is a big year for health. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and with it the very right to health itself, celebrates 70 years of existence, while other key health milestones such as the Tallinn Charter and Alma-Ata celebrate their anniversaries. All these occasions give us one more reason to highlight how important it is for health to remain a key European priority.
Decisive political action and strong commitments to a comprehensive vision of improved health for all are needed. In 2018, the EHFG will focus on health in the EU within the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations Agenda 2030, and challenges participants and session partners to explore how all can contribute to reaching the SDG targets, safeguarding health and advancing sustainable development.


What priorities do we need to set, which risks should we take, which convictions do we need to overturn? Is it time for a healthy paradigm shift to make our systems future-proof? Help us answering these questions and make the case for health as a necessary key concern for European actors and institutions that impacts prosperity on all levels.

Pencil the EHFG’s date in your diaries to join the debate and be part of setting a bold political agenda for Europe’s future strategy on health!
