Entitled "Taking Action - A Roadmap to Achieving Universal Health Coverage for All Patients by 2030" and hosted by MEP Miriam Dalli (S&D, Malta), the event will give the opportunity to:

  1. Present EPF's Roadmap Towards Achieving Universal Health Coverage for All by 2030, which concludes our campaign by identifying and proposing key political steps and actions that EU decision makers and Member States need to take and challenges that need to be considered in order to achieve universal health coverage for all patients in the EU by 2030.  
  2. Call for political action, commitment and a sense of responsibility to achieve a vision where equity of access and universal health coverage is a reality for all patients in the EU.
  3. Share patient testimonials of existing unmet needs and unequal experiences in access to healthcare within the EU.

A panel discussion 'In what way is attaining Universal Health Coverage pivotal to the sustainable and successful implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals?’ will follow the presentation of the Roadmap’s recommendations, giving the audience and panel an opportunity to discuss the next political actions in view of implementing the Roadmap's recommendations both at European and national level.

If you are interested, please register HERE before 27 November.
