Partner Session 01: Healthy Choices – Promoting Healthy Behaviour

-
Liechtenstein-Saal
Partner / Working Group
german language

Economists basically agree that encouraging a healthy lifestyle leads to a sustainable improvement of the population’s health, thus reducing healthcare costs. Healthcare policies should therefore motivate people to adopt a healthier way of life. Incentives and “nudges” are integral parts of an innovative way of changing people’s behaviour in the framework of solidarity systems without challenging the fundamentals of social security. We will discuss the question: “Do incentives improve the general state of health?” against the backdrop of a recent study on financial incentives.

Immediately after the session, the SVA, in cooperation with the TGKK, invites all participants of their partner session to a reception in the Otto-Molden-Foyer.
