Conference description:

The multiple challenges of aging societies, growing demand for long-term care, increased burden for the healthcare workforce, and shrinking budgets for public healthcare systems are common to most high-income countries. Despite facing vastly similar health systems’ challenges, most Central and Eastern European countries (including EU-member states and non-member states) lag behind in terms of innovations in the ways their healthcare systems are organised and issues tackled. Additionally, compared to Western Europe, the region has a substantial gap in terms of economic development, with various countries still in a middle-income status, which makes the fiscal constraints even more salient.

The Croatian Health Economics Workshop aims to stimulate an academic discussion around these topics, fostering a closer collaboration between scholars with interest in health, labour and public economics, within Croatia, Central and Eastern Europe as well as internationally. More generally, the workshop hopes to serve as a platform for exchanging best practices and transferring knowledge within Central and Eastern Europe and the international community.
