EUREGHA is a network of 19 regional and local health authorities from 10 countries across Europe, with a Brussels-based Secretariat, which puts EUREGHA in a unique position for outreach and exchange. EUREGHA aims to promote collaboration amongst European regions and local authorities within the framework of policies relating to public health and health care, aiming to achieve innovative, sustainable, future-proof health systems delivering more accessible and better care for all. EUREGHA also cooperates with the EU institutions, international and public organizations related to public health and health care.
Based on this approach, EUREGHA views the future of healthcare through three lenses: a paradigm shift towards value-based healthcare; taking full advantage of digital transformation; and community and co-creation as key concepts in designing and implementing policies. Building on that, EUREGHA identifies a set of enablers representing how it can be achieved: policies and frameworks; education, skills and literacy development; value-based procurement strategies; health systems integration; health promotion and prevention; and cross-border cooperation.
