Welcome to the International Health Policy Dialogue website


In April 2017 we hosted a first policy dialogue, which catered for a valuable international reflection of the Dutch healthcare system and health policy. It was a joint effort of the Dutch Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sports, the OECD and WHO/European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies, and some of the most relevant players in the Dutch health policy arena including patients, financers, and providers. This year’s session will follow up on last year’s findings with a similar group of participants, and aims to gather more specific international inputs on dilemma’s we face in formulating and implementing our current policy agenda, like the efficient and productive use of (internationally comparable) data on quality of care, coordination of care, and preventing wasteful spending in healthcare.
