With the two-year State of the Health in the EU” cycle, the European Commission has teamed up with the OECD and the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies to bring together knowledge and expertise with a view to providing specific evidence-based tools for policy action. The result is a package of individual Country Health Profiles along with the Commission′s Companion Report highlighting potential areas of EU added value in healthcare.

Against this background the MEP Interest Group on Patient Access to Healthcare, in cooperation with PACT and DG SANTE, will host a debate to discuss the findings and the way forward

 but also the challenges that Member States may encounter in terms of implementation. The event will take place on Tuesday, 28 November 2017 from 14:00 to 16:00 in room 6Q1 in the European Parliament. 

The initiative will be presented by Mr. Andrzej Rys (Director – Health systems, medical products and innovation, DG SANTE, European Commission), Mr. Jens Wilkens (Health Policy Analyst, OECD Health Division) and Mr. Josep Figueras (Director, European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies).
