This year, for its annual High-level Conference, EUREGHA joined forces with the WHO Regions for Health Network to proudly celebrate respectively their 10th and 30th anniversary as networks of European regions! With 100+ on-site participants and 50+ joining online, the Conference saw the participation of regional representatives and stakeholders from all over Europe to discuss the role of regions in building and boosting more resilient and future-proof health and care systems in Europe, deep diving into three topics at the core of EUREGHA’s vision: value-based healthcare, digital transformation, and cross-border cooperation. All was seasoned by a high-level setting kindly provided by the European Committee of the Regions.
