Free online conference: Skills for health,  Up- and re- skilling for a sustainable recovery

On 3 December 2020, 9:30 – 13.00 CET EuroHealthNet organises the free online conference: Skills for health, Up- and re- skilling for a sustainable recovery.

COVID-19 has shown the dysfunctions and weaknesses of our overloaded health systems. Strengthening the skills of health professionals can help us to better prepare for health crises by promoting health rather than treating health problems. COVID-19 has fundamentally changed our social and professional lives. Digitalisation, changes in work, the ways we find and keep employment, how we spend our free time will have an impact on our health and wellbeing. The deployment of new, more accessible skills promotes and protects health.

Speakers are:

  • Commissioner Nicolas Schmit,European Commissioner for Jobs and Social Rights.
  • Teresa Ribera, Vice-President and Minister for Ecological Transition and Demographic Challenge, Spain.
  • Nino Berdzuli, WHO Europe, Director of the Division of Country Health Programmes.
  • Katarina Ivanković-Knežević, Director for Social Affairs, DG Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion, European Commission.
