Gastein forum.2jpg

Like the last year EUSJA journalists were invited to attend the European Health Forum Gastein to be held in a remarkable place Bad Hofgastein in Austria (October 2 – 4). EUSJA members once again are getting a wonderful opportunity to participate to the most important health policy event in European Union and watch very interesting sessions and discussions of the politicians, scientists, policymakers. Moreover, EUSJA was offered a possibility to organize an informal session the days of the Forum and present a journalistic view of the health policy in Europe. The idea of such a kind session was discussed last year during the meeting of EUSJA journalists with newly elected President of the European Health Forum Gastein Dr Helmut Brand.
The motto of this year meeting is “Creating a better future for health in Europe”. First announcement of the programme is to EHFG we page:
