SantExpo puts health at the heart of democracy, the main theme of the 2023 edition
In recent years, health has become a major topic of public debate. The scale of the COVID crisis and its consequences on society have illustrated with unprecedented force how health is both a personal, even intimate, issue and an essential political subject. In democracies, the measures taken to deal with the pandemic have sought to reconcile ethical requirements, respect for freedoms and public debate with the objective of efficiency.
Beyond the COVID pandemic, in France as in Europe, the crisis of the health systems questions the means allocated to them in a difficult economic context, as well as the rights and duties of patients and health professionals.
In this context, twenty years after the law on the rights of patients and the quality of the health system, the strengthening of health democracy and the place of users is expected. The reforms announced within the framework of the Conseil national de la refondation (CNR) are intended to give citizens and local debate a greater role in the development and implementation of health policies.
How can health policies be designed and organized democratically, both locally and nationally? How to strengthen the place of the patient in the health system and health democracy? These questions will be at the heart of SantExpo 2023
In 2023, the 57th edition of SantExpo has integrate the pavilion 1, to adapt to the development of the four sectors represented by the 600 exhibitors (equipment manufacturers, software editors, suppliers, e-health entrepreneurs, medical device manufacturers, architects, carers, institutional …) and welcome the expected 30,000 professionals: caregivers, experts, decision makers, users and health professionals involved in the management, digital, equipment and construction of health facilities.
