9th European Patients’ Rights Day

12 May 2015 
European Parliament, rue RueWiertz 60,
1047 Brussels

Active Citizenship Network (ACN) has decided to dedicate the 9th celebration of the European Patients’ Rights Day 2015 (launched by ACN in 2003) to the sustainability of healthcare systems focusing on what concerns chronic diseases.
Chronic diseases represent the major share of the burden of disease in Europe and are responsible for 86% of all deaths. They affect more than 80% of people aged over 65 and represent a major challenge for health and social systems. An estimated € 700 billion per year (it means 70 to 80% of overall EU health care budgets)  are spent on chronic diseases in the European Union. Moreover, we need to keep in mind the increasing demands for expensive medical technology that are made by a society that is ageing rapidly. In this context, the sustainability of our health and social systems is at stake. It is crucial to find new ways of investing in sustainable health systems, moving beyond limiting expenditure to addressing the demand for health and social services, much of which is related to chronic diseases.
