Overview for Sciana 2017

The Health Foundation (UK), Robert Bosch Stiftung (Germany), Careum Stiftung (Switzerland), in collaboration with Salzburg Global Seminar have launched Sciana: The Health Leaders Network, which will bring together outstanding leaders in health and health care policy and innovation.

The Sciana network will provide members, initially drawn from the UK, Germany and Switzerland, with space to take inspiration and learning from across the globe, and time to share insights gained from their own experiences with peers, with whom they will work to address some of the shared challenges we are facing across Europe.

Members will share a deep commitment to quality, sustainability, universal coverage, and patient and community-centered care, nationally and internationally. Their vision and collaboration, aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, is critically needed to respond to common issues, such as fiscal strains, demographic change, chronic diseases, and migration

The 2017 Sciana group will focus on the following key themes:

  • Globalization
  • Urbanization around the world
  • Ageing populations
  • Technical innovation and disruption, including the implementation of information technology in health care.
  • Patient engagement
  • The health workforce
  • Social determinants and inequities
  • The need for a greater focus on public health
  • Financially unsustainable health systems
