European Alliance formed to put value and outcomes at centre of health systems

Today, 11 associations form the European Alliance for Value in Health. The Alliance represents a broad group of European associations representing patients, scientific and professional societies, healthcare managers, hospitals, regional health authorities and life-science industries.

We are in a pivotal moment for European health systems, when the COVID-19 pandemic has put health systems under severe stress and added to the already existing pressures stemming from ageing populations and chronic diseases. Health systems are complex, often fragmented and heavy with legacy. To a great extent they are still operating on a logic from an older era, built around treating acute illness and disease, and have therefore been struggling to meet the needs coming from today’s demographic, societal and technological developments.
