European Care systems: Solidarity and sustainability – friends or foes?
The European Association of Paritarian Funds – AEIP and the International Association of Mutual Benefit societies – AIM are co-organising an hybrid event entitled “The European Care Strategy: Solidarity and sustainability – friends or foes?”, hosted at the European Parliament by MEP Sirpa Pietikäinen, in the morning of 6 September 2022, between 10h – 12h CET.
The event will gather EU-level key stakeholders, policymakers as well as experts from social protection institutions, healthcare mutuals, carers and other stakeholders. The discussions in the event will focus on how both the sustainability and the solidarity in care systems can be ensured given the challenges of the increasing demand, the rising costs of treatment and innovation, ageing populations and the consequent decrease in social contributions.
The event aims to stimulate a debate on how to factor these trends and take into consideration at the same time the need to improve access to formal care services, the formalisation of informal care as well as the provision of financial support and social protection to informal carers.
Registration is open here.
