From September 20th to 22nd, the National Cancer Institute (INC) and the Luxembourg Institute of Health (LIH) participated in the inaugural edition of Healthcare Week Luxembourg, a national event focused on healthcare.
This event brought together stakeholders from the Greater Region, including Luxembourg, Belgium, France, and Germany, with the aim of identifying actions to strengthen our healthcare systems in this specific cross-border context. With over 2,500 participants at this event, a wide range of institutions were represented, including healthcare facilities, ministries, various government agencies, professional associations, patient associations, as well as service providers encompassing technologies, information technology, and medical equipment.
The conferences addressed numerous essential topics, such as the concept of value-based healthcare, accreditation and certification of hospital facilities, patient integration as partners, and research and education in healthcare.
In this context, the INC and LIH introduced visitors to the objectives of ECHoS and the concept of National Cancer Mission Hubs. They also outlined the envisioned structure for the NCMH in Luxembourg, fostering discussion with event participants.
