<strong>New Report to Highlight Novel Approaches for Better Health Outcomes</strong>

<strong>Health Policy and Finance Experts to Recommend Urgent Actions at Helsinki Conference to Secure Quality Healthcare for EU Citizens</strong>

 

<strong><u>Brussels- 7 December 2006</u></strong> -- Pat Cox- Chairman of the European Movement and former President of the European Parliament- today at Finland’s Permanent Representation to the EU presented the initial findings of a new report on “Financing Sustainable Healthcare in Europe”.<br /><br /> Starting under the Luxembourg EU Presidency in 2005- leading healthcare- policy and finance experts including from the European Investment Bank- the World Bank- the European Health Management Association- the University of Toulouse- INSEAD and the London School of Economics in partnership with the Luxembourg Ministry of Health- the Finnish National Fund for Research and Development (Sitra) and Pfizer have developed a range of recommendations to improve healthcare quality and financing in Europe and to secure better quality outcomes for EU citizens everywhere.<br /><br /><strong>Quality returns on healthcare investments<br /></strong><br /> “Europe’s demographic shift towards an older population has raised dramatically the challenge of cost and sustainability of good healthcare”- said Cox- who is heading the Steering Committee of this novel multi-partner expert group. “However- the true issue is not the rising cost of an older population. In fact- it is encouraging that in most EU countries today people lead longer and healthier lives than just a generation ago. The issue is that governments need to invest their available healthcare resources wisely to provide best quality returns for their patients and citizens.”<br /><br /> In several workstreams- the experts have analysed the current status and are providing cutting-edge recommendations for the financing of quality healthcare in the future Europe.<br /><br />
