“The last two years have seen people across Europe applauding healthcare professionals for their heroic efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the pandemic has also spotlighted the vital need to put the sustainability, protection, and recovery of the healthcare workforce at the centre of investment, planning and policymaking, as we slowly edge towards a recovery that has been made possible in no small part due to their dedicated professionalism and sacrifices. In 2021, the EHLA is therefore looking for an outstanding initiative from an individual or organization concerned with supporting the health and well-being of the health workforce in Europe, and hence contributing to a more resilient future for health in Europe. The Award simultaneously aims to both express gratitude for their work and promote their initiative so that it can become an inspiration for others to further generate a greater impact on health and societal well-being.”
As a global organization which, since its very beginning, seeks to improve healthcare throughout Europe and worldwide, we believe the OMI is working towards these exact goals and is pleased to have been recognized.
The European Health Leadership Award is organized by the European Health Forum Gastein and supported by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Social Affairs, Health, Care and Consumer Protection.
