The 13th European Patients’ Rights Day (EPRD) will be celebrated at the European Parliament in Brussels by Active Citizenship Network (ACN) on April 2019.
The 2019 conference will have a twofold structure: a multi-stakeholder event titled “An electoral debate on citizens’ expectations” on April 9th and a mono-stakeholder thematic conference focused on Digital Health and Personalized Medicine on April 10th.
In fact, in these days a large number of Europeans believe the EU is heading in the wrong direction but we hope to convert that dissatisfaction into democratic zeal rather than political apathy. For this reason, we would like to transform the Brussels event of the European Patients’ Rights Day in a debate on citizens’ expectations about health issues, and to ask to candidate MEPs to share their opinions on the challenges for Health in EU 2019 -2024. Indeed, we strongly believe that the reinforcement of the rights established in the EU Charter of Patients’ Rights will become effective only with the cooperation and commitment of all the healthcare stakeholders.
The European Patients’ Rights Day has become a regular annual event on the European and national political agendas to inform, discuss and take commitments to improve patients’ rights in Europe and in each Member State. Every year, also thanks to the more than one hundred patient and civic associations of our network, the EPRD is celebrated in hundreds of cities and ways all around Europe (here there are some examples of the celebrations in 2017 & 2018).
