Active Ageing citizens at the center of EU health policy

Active Citizenship Network is glad to invite you
to attend the European event of the 6th European Patients'Rights Day: " Active Ageing citizens at the center of EU health policy " on the 15-16 of May 2012, in the EESC, Brussels (Van Maerlant Building, Room VM3 -  2nd floor 2, rue Van Maerlant).
The number of ageing citizens is rapidly increasing (Europeans aged 65+ is expected to increase by 45% between 2008 and 2030, and even further to over 30% of the population by 2060) the issues of their access to health care services and the respect of their rights as patients are becoming central and extremely challenging.
The objective of the conference is thus to demonstrate that part of the solution resides in a change of perspective vis-à-vis ageing citizens, from weak patients into "empowered users" of health care services, able to contribute to a better implementation of their rights.
As the places available are limited, the registration is needed, please fill in the registration form attached and send it by e-mail to: a.puddu@activecitizenship.net
