healtheurope 25th May 2016

In every English city, town, district and region, public health commissioners and programme leaders share many common objectives with their professional counterparts from across the UK and continental Europe.

While facing an ever-growing series of social, economic and demographic challenges, each must seek new ways of prioritising the health and wellbeing needs of their local communities; driving up standards of service; improving public health outcomes; and delivering even-better value for the public purse.

healtheurope.eu  offers a platform to share knowledge and identify innovative approaches within individual countries, sharing information with their regions and to other European nations.

By examining steps taken to rise to the challenges of 21st century public health provision, it signposts the shared road ahead for professionals, provider organisations and national governments.

To help stimulate this process, healtheurope.eu will deliver a programme of live events, staged in major European cities, each bringing together a personally-invited delegate audience of public health commissioners and programme leaders from across the individual ‘host’ country.

Each healtheurope.eu event will also be live broadcast – enabling on-the-day access to all proceedings for key professional observers from other nation states across Europe.

Incorporating on-demand digital recordings of each live event; information resources; research; reports; analysis and case-study material; healtheurope.eu provides an interactive online-hub and resource-base, open to all.
