The National School of Public Health Department of Health Economics organises the 12th Panhellenic Conference in an attempt to formulate evaluative ideas, critical thinking and well-documented proposals, for the promotion of structural changes in the healthcare sector –from the point of view of (social) equality, (financial) efficiency and (medical) effectiveness.

Therefore, we should like to invite all of you who are involved in the processes above to participate in the Conference and contribute to the introduction, the discussion and formulation of views on healthcare reform, which requires prior scientific documentation and the development of an environment of national and social consensus.

1st Announcement of the 12th PANHELLENIC CONGRESS ON MANAGEMENT, ECONOMICS AND HEALTH POLICY
“OVERCOMING BARRIERS IN ACCESS AND HEALTH INEQUALITIES:
IN SEARCH OF THE NECESSARY STRUCTURAL REFORMS”
DIVANI CARAVEL HOTEL, ATHENS, 13-15 DECEMBER 2016

The ongoing financial crisis of these past years and its repercussions on health, society and economy has raised serious questions as to the sustainability of the healthcare system and, as a result, mandates the scrutiny and re-evaluation of nearly all issues related to national health policy and healthcare sector growth.

Central administration planning aims at shaping anew the foundations of the public sector health system on the basis of primary healthcare and the overall enhancement of its public character. Consequently, appropriate policies are sought, so as to ensure sufficient and steadfast funding for medical treatment which will cover the needs of the ensemble of the population, as well as the requirements for the necessary structural changes in health and healthcare, in order to overcome access problems, especially as regards vulnerable population groups, while at the same time placing under control the inherent inequalities in health and medical treatment, which affect the underprivileged social strata. Additionally, it is imperative that we explore the conditions and seek measures to ensure the sustainable development of the healthcare sector in our country.

It is within this framework that the National School of Public Health Department of Health Economics organises the 12th Panhellenic Conference in an attempt to formulate evaluative ideas, critical thinking and well-documented proposals, for the promotion of structural changes in the healthcare sector –from the point of view of (social) equality, (financial) efficiency and (medical) effectiveness.

Therefore, we should like to invite all those involved in the processes above to participate in the Conference and contribute to the introduction, the discussion and formulation of views on healthcare reform, which requires prior scientific documentation and the development of an environment of national and social consensus.
