Increased life expectancy and an ageing population represent significant changes in Europe that reflect health care improvements. However, these changes also put pressure on the sustainability of health and social systems and are accompanied by an increased number of years lost due to chronic conditions.

Adding years to life and life to years can be achieved by fostering healthier ways of life, reducing health inequalities, promoting a healthy lifestyle and a culture of prevention among children, promoting active ageing and implementing the chronic care model.

The effectiveness of these actions requires a multidimensional approach and inter-sectoral collaboration; it is therefore a key public health priority in the 21st century.

Citizens in the new EU Member States, including V4 countries, have shorter life expectancy and worse health status than people in other EU countries. The similar historical, political and economic contexts of the V4 countries provide them the opportunity to act together more efficiently compared with other EU countries.

The main aim of this event is to support further development of public health systems in the Visegrad four countries: Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia.
