eHealth and Health Policies: Synergies for better Health in a Europe of Regions

ImageSince 2003 the European Commission consistently supports the organisation of eHealth High Level Conferences as a successful way of fostering best practices exchange between European policy makers, experts and other stakeholders in eHealth; as well as a unique dissemination opportunity for innovative processes and implementations.

The first of these conferences took place in Brussels (Belgium), 22-23 May 2003, while the city of Cork (Ireland) hosted the second eHealth Conference, 5-6 May 2004. The third edition was organised by Norway in the city of Tromso, 22-23 May 2005.

This kind of events totally aligned with both Public Health and eHealth Action Plans, contribute to improved health information and knowledge for the development of public health; consolidating European meeting spaces from where to build common approaches to shared challenges.

In early March 2005 the Spanish Ministry together with the Andalusian Regional Ministry of Health contacted the European Commission to show their interest to hold next eHealth High Level Conference.

The initiative was officially announced in Tromso (Norway) during the eHealth 2005 Conference (23-24 May 2005), ensuring the continuity to 2003, 2004 and 2005's editions.

The eHealth 2006 High Level Conference and Exhibition will be held at the Malaga Trade Fairs and Congress Centre, 10-12 May 2006.

The city of Malaga is located in the southern part of Spain on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, known as Costa del Sol. It is one of the eight regional capitals of Andalusia and the biggest coastal city in the south with approximately 550.000 inhabitants.

As in former editions, attendance will be by invitation only on the part of the authorities of the EU Member States, Candidates and EFTA Countries and the co-organising institutions.
