15-17 June 2022 – Brussels, Belgium

In collaboration with the Leuven Institute for Healthcare Policy, the European Health Management Association (EHMA) will be hosting its 27th Annual Conference on 15-17 June 2022 for the first time in Brussels, Belgium. The conference title ‘From people to systems: leadership for a sustainable future’ will explore challenges and solutions for creating sustainable health systems and ways health managers can lead towards them.

One of EHMA’s main areas of work has been maintaining a dialogue between researchers, policymakers, health managers and professionals, thereby facilitating evidence-based policy refinement and change. The EHMA 2022 Annual Conference is a unique occasion for health managers, researchers, and professionals to have their voices heard, connect with decision-makers, and collectively inform policymaking at the European level.

Join us at our EHMA Annual Conference in 2022!

As our health systems are straining to cope with the COVID 19 pandemic, nothing is more important than to learn from each other about how we can most effectively respond to the challenges of today and tomorrow. The EHMA conference is a unique place to exchange knowledge, learn about new innovative ways of managing and organising health care services and advance our understanding of how to lead health systems in times of constant change and profound transformation.

Over the years, the EHMA conference has always been the place to share cutting edge research, innovation and experiences in health management, be that in community health, acute hospital providers or in allied health care services. The EHMA Annual Conference remains the perfect place to get in touch with your European and international colleagues discussing the latest developments in various conference tracks such as Governance and Leadership, finance and economics, management and operations as well as policy and health care regulation. We look forward to seeing you there!

Axel Kaehne, President of the EHMA Board

What I love about the EHMA Annual Conference is how it finds the balance between the strategic and the practical. The Conference identifies and brings to the table the most relevant policy topics with content that is engaging for practitioners as well.

Dr Josep Figueras, Director of the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies

I attended EHMA conferences for the past 10 years and I have always been hugely satisfied with the well-organised, interactive and friendly scientific and social programmes. Every EHMA conference provides all delegates with opportunities to engage in discussions on relevant and timely topics with different stakeholders in healthcare management. I highly reccomend it!
