Workshop - Health Economics in the National and EU context (EN)

21/09/2017 16:00 to 21/09/2017 19:00 (Europe/Luxembourg)

Luxembourg, Luxembourg

Odoo CMS - a big picture


Societal health and wellbeing are strongly correlated with a nation’s wealth; however, personal circumstances as well as the accessibility and quality of healthcare impact on individual health.

Eurostat ranks Luxembourg’s healthcare expenditure per inhabitant among the highest in the EU. However, expenditure alone does not guarantee an efficient, fair and quality healthcare service. Health economics is used in most EU countries and beyond to support informed decision making to distribute healthcare spending with the aim of maximising benefits for the individual and for Society.

This workshop will bring together international experts in health economics as well as national stakeholders operating in healthcare to learn and discuss the opportunities that health economic research has to offer in informing national policy to improve health and healthcare in Luxembourg.


Participation is free.
