International Symposium on Health Care Policy, Fall 2007


The Fund's 10th annual International Symposium on Health Care Policy will focus on major reforms in industrialized countries aimed at achieving a high performance health care system. Topics will include the changing public–private mix of financing and delivery, initiatives aimed at increasing market competition, and consumer choice as a lever for quality improvement. In bringing together leading policymakers and researchers from Australia, Canada, Germany, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States—as well as other selected European countries—the symposium will highlight for U.S. policymakers the strategies followed by other health systems to ensure universal coverage, improve quality, and achieve greater efficiency. To reach broader policy audiences, the Fund will webcast a health ministers' roundtable discussion and hold the second day of the symposium on Capitol Hill. The international perspectives heard at the meeting will also inform the work of the Fund's Commission on a High Performance Health System. Symposium papers will be considered for publication by Health Affairs.
