XXI ECPD INTERNATIONAL SUMMER SCHOOL

MANAGEMENT OF HEALTH CARE INSTITUTIONS

WITH THE MAIN TOPIC

HEALTH SYSTEMS IN ECONOMIC AND MIGRANT CRISIS

(Miločer, 27 June–1 July, 2016)

 

 

We have the pleasure to invite you to take part in the work of Twenty first ECPD International Summer School of Management of Health Care institutions (hereinafter: School), devoted to a highly topical issue: Health Systems in Economic and Migrant Crisis. This year’s ECPD International Summer School continues with current topics in the field of health management and extends the tradition of gathering health managers and other decision makers in health care systems from the region of South-east and Central Europe.

Taking into account that the economic crisis in Europe has not yet been overcome and could be followed by another wave as well as that health systems in most countries are undergoing cuts in health budgets, while at the same time they are facing a huge inflow of economic immigrants and refugees, there is an even higher need for short- and medium term health reforms, in order to respond to the existing and new challenges to health care. We believe that the program of this year’s Summer School that will cover a wide range of topics is rightfully dedicated to these challenges.

The President of the School Council is Prof. Dr. Đorđe Jakovljević, Founder and long-standing Director of this ECPD International Summer School. Director of this year’s School is Prof. Dr. Dušan Keber, a prominent international expert with extensive experience in this field across the region of Southeast Europe (former Minister of Health of Slovenia and Managing Director of the University Clinical Center in Ljubljana), while the Co-Directors are Prof. Dr. Klaus-Dirk Henke, Chair of Health Economics and Health Management, Technical University, Berlin, Prof. Dr. Ana Stavljenić Rukavina, University Libertas, Zagreb, Prof. Dr. Nebojša Arsenijević, Rector of the University of Kragujevac and and Prof. Dr. Arne Björnberg, Executive Director and Chief Operating Officer, Health Consumer Powerhouse, Sweden.
