From 30th September to 2nd October 2020 the European Health Forum Gastein took place as a virtual event under the main theme "Dancing with elephants": <the determinants of health and well-being are often driven by the interests of big players, which are not always aligned with public health agendas. In order to purposefully engage with these giants while safeguarding the interests of people, we need to conceptualise new partnership models – learn to “dance with elephants” - but we should be careful not to get our toes crushed. The COVID-19 pandemic has put into sharp focus the current fault lines in our systems and highlighted the need for true cross-sector and cross-border collaboration>.

Those who missed the digital conference can now access both the session recordings and the conference proceedings via the EHFG website:

The EHFG team look forward to the 2021 edition taking place from 29 September - 1 October 2021.
