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 healthcare 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

On Thursday, 20 May 2021 the TO-REACH project held its Final Conference, ‘Implementing and transferring innovations across health systems’. The conference brought together high-level speakers from the WHO, the European Commission and Ministries of Health, as well as project partners, academia, NGOs and the public at large to discuss the work done by the project over the past five years and the future of health systems and service research.
With over 230 attendees and an impressive speaker line-up, the Final Conference was the perfect chance to reflect on the challenges health systems are facing, the achievements of TO-REACH including its Strategic Research Agenda and Policy Briefs, but also to look forward at the Partnership on Transforming Health and Care Systems that the project helped building.Read More » Leave a comment »

The TO-REACH project addressed what the key priority areas are where European health systems can learn from each other and how we can improve their ability to do so.
One core activity of the project was the publication of two policy briefs addressed to policy-makers and health system managers. The briefs were designed to provide policy makers with evidence on a policy question or priority to support evidence-informed policy-making.

European health systems have been under incredible pressure, and the COVID-19 pandemic was just the latest symptom of a more profound ailment. To address this situation, a new common vision is needed, one based on mutual learning and collaboration. Such vision is the key to transforming health and care systems and making them more resilient, effective and sustainable. Countries and regions in Europe should learn from each other and collaborate to enable the effective transfer and implementation of health policy and services innovations.Read More » Leave a comment »
