As a consultant, I advise clients across the public and private sector ranging from individual hospitals to Europe-wide associations, and from local and national governments to the World Health Organization. Particular achievements include teaching European health issues within a training programme for the Italian regions, publishing analysis highlighting the health systems impact of the Eurozone ‘bailout’ programmes, co-directing a summer school on health system responses to ageing for the European Observatory on health systems and policies, and organising a workshop on reform of primary care for the Austrian government.
I have over twenty years of experience in international health policy and health consultancy, including over a decade in the European Commission, most recently as head of unit for health information – a short title for a unit which covered a lot of topics, including information, data and evidence for European health policy; leading European policy on major, rare and non-communicable diseases; and some other issues such as e-health, too. My time in the Commission included leading the development of major European initiatives such as directive on patients’ rights in cross-border healthcare, the multi-stakeholder European Partnership for Action Against Cancer, and representing the European Union in international forums such as the World Health Assembly and the OECD Health Committee.
