“FINANCING Tomorrow’s Heath Care. Challenges and Solutions” is the topic of a health care seminar with the G?ran H?glund, Swedish Minister for Health and Social Affairs and Harry McPherson, former Special Counsel to President Lyndon Johnson. Cristian Baeza, Director for Health, Nutrition, and Population at the World Bank will be the discussant.
THE FINANCING of the U.S. health care system is a major challenge, which the debate about “Obama Care” shows, and it may be an important issue in next year’s presidential election.
SWEDEN HAS chosen a different model of health care, and the financing works differently. However, both systems face challenges – demographic change being one — and demands new ideas. The seminar will cover challenges and solutions based on experiences from both countries.
TIME and location: Monday, Oct. 24, 5:30 p.m.-7 p.m., The Center for Transatlantic Relations, Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS), Rome Auditorium, 1619 Massachusetts Ave., N.W., Washington, D.C. To participate RSVP to email@example.com before Oct. 22.
