Health State of the Union

16 February 2016


The EPC’s ‘Health State of the Union’ CHES Policy Dialogue reflected on the priorities of health policies at the European level. Among many health aspects that the EU is engaged in, an overriding challenge for health policy in 2016 will be the sustainability of health systems in the context of increasing costs and demographic developments.  A panel of health experts and policy makers explored this question of sustainability as well as other factors affecting health policy at the EU level. The Dialogue was chaired by Hans Martens Chair of CHES; Senior Advisor, European Policy Centre (EPC).
