04: Implementing Knowledge: What is the Value of Health?

-
Liechtenstein-Saal
Breakout / Working Group
german language

What are we willing to pay for health care? How much do we want and are we able to afford? Which significance do health goals have, and which structures are required to enable us to achieve them? What does a health-promoting overall policy mean in practice, and how can it be implemented? Which significance do indices and transparency have? How can quality in the medical field be appropriately assured?
