Commissioner Andriukaitis in Austria for the European Health Forum Gastein

Today and tomorrow, Commissioner Andriukaitis attends the European Health Forum Gastein in Bad Hofgastein, Austria. This year, the event that gathers health community, focuses on the theme of “A healthy dose of disruption? Transformative change for health and societal well-being”. Reacting to the topic ahead of the event Commissioner Andriukaitis said ‘In the field of health, many challenges lie ahead: demographic change, rising multimorbidity, shrinking resources Do we need a disruption to overcome these challenges? And if so, is there a clinical trial we can perform to determine the exact dose of disruption needed? I do not have a yes or no answer but if the technological innovation and visionary ideas can help us to achieve better results in health protection, prevention and cure – we should seize the opportunity and use them wisely. I am looking forward to discussing this and other topics with all the participants’. Commissioner will deliver a speech at the Plenary session and meet the Young Forum Gasteiners and NGOs.
