Developing healthcare systems - Conference


The Embassy of Sweden in Poland, Swecare and the Swedish Trade Council are pleased to invite you to a Healthcare Conference on May 24 followed by a visiting program on May 25, 2012 in Warsaw.


Poland faces great challenges in its’ strive to provide high qualitative and efficient healthcare to the whole population.. The needs and costs for healthcare will increase as Poland, like many other western countries, is facing a demographic change with a rapidly ageing population. There is also an urgent need for modernization and upgrading of current healthcare facilities. To address these challenges Polish authorities have developed several national strategies. Focus of these strategies is how to provide better care using the already available economic resources.

Conference and study visit

The conference is a Swedish-Polish joint initiative to create a one-day meeting with presentations, case studies and panel debates. The event will serve as a platform for exchange of knowhow and expertise between Sweden and Poland.  The purpose is also to generate specific business opportunities for Swedish companies, already present on, or planning on entering the Polish market
