Together we will shape the future of healthcare

The Hague, The Netherlands
5 Main topics


Without drastic measures being taken in the next 15 years current healthcare systems will prove to be unsustainable.

Almost everywhere the demand for healthcare is rising, healthcare costs are steeply increasing, quality and access to health differs, and financial incentives in health systems often are incongruous. The complexity of the healthcare organization in many countries makes quality assessment very difficult and for patients just a labyrinth.

New developments such as better and faster diagnostic tools and more personalized medicine can lead to cost reduction. But when not controlled may lead to spiraling costs. Governments, health providers, health insurance companies, pharmaceutical companies and society have to take responsibility to guarantee a sustainable future for healthcare systems. All stakeholders realize that new paradigms and business plans are urgently needed.

The World Healthcare Forum wants to be a global initiative. Specific problems and solutions for the less developed countries will also be part of the programme. The WHF helps formulating these paradigms and business plans and define action plans, facilitating policymakers and decision makers from all over the world. Therefore WHF wants to be on the frontline. It wants to create action! Please join us! Be part of the Action!
