Target audience

The target audience includes: delegations of 3–4 individuals per Member State; representatives of the European Commission and European Parliament and key international agencies; representatives of donor and development agencies; representatives of nongovernmental organizations; invited experts; and WHO staff. Although the role of industry and the private sector are considered very important in the context of the Health 2020 policy, at this stage and for practical purposes it was decided to invite a few private sector representatives to share their perspectives at this meeting.

The 3–4 individuals per Member State would include: high-level government officials who are members of the European Health Policy Forum; representatives of various sectors (experts or decision-makers), drawing on existing collaboration (such as environment, transport, education, social services or finance); advisers to prime ministers on health issues; parliamentarians (such as chairs of parliamentary health and social services committees); and regional representatives, mayors or senior government officials.
