Towards a joint European research programme on health services and systems
Over the last decade, European health systems have faced growing common challenges: ageing related issues and continuous financial pressures
call for innovative solutions on how to organise health care in an equitable and efficient manner. To address this situation there is an urgent
need to bring innovation and research evidence, to identify more effective and sustainable ways to organize, manage, finance, and deliver high quality care to European citizens.
TO-REACH is a coordination and support action (CSA) to prepare a joint European research programme aimed at producing research evidence supporting health care services and systems to become more resilient, effective, equitable, accessible, sustainable and comprehensive (in Europe, and abroad).
- To produce the Strategic Research Agenda of the future joint research programme;
- To broaden the coalition of committed Member States and funding bodies;
- To design an efficient “structure” of the research network.
