Luxembourg Health Summit - A new vision for the Grand Duchy

Date: 11-04-2012

Luxembourg can become the first nation in the world in which every person has an opportunity to avoid preventable diseases, to access effective diagnostic and therapeutic care for curable diseases, and to adapt and self-manage when faced with unavoidable sources of suffering. The Ministry of Health and the Personalised Medicine Consortium (PMC) of Luxembourg are cordially inviting the general public of Luxembourg to attend a ground-breaking national health summit where this vision will be discussed.

The Luxembourg Health Summit is designed to lay the foundations for launching a new initiative and achieve this new vision. Through the proposed new initiative, Luxembourg can become one of the most attractive countries in the world for testing and implementing important innovations, and therefore become the healthiest country in the world. Attendees of the Summit will have the opportunity to:

  • learn about successful initiatives that are already improving health and accelerating the transformation of health systems in other regions of the world
  • hear about innovative initiatives that are currently enabling individuals or communities to adapt and self-manage their lives in the face of physical, mental or social challenges
  • learn about a new plan to start bold pilot projects identified by key opinion leaders and designed to enable Luxembourg to become the healthiest country on earth, one person at a time.

The event will take place with the participation of:

His Royal Highness the Crown Prince of Luxembourg

Mars Di Bartolomeo, Minister of Health, Luxembourg

Rafael Bengoa, Minister of Health and Consumer Affairs, Basque Country, Spain
