Extract from the foreword

“This work contributes a great deal to the current reflection of the European Commission and Member States about the future of the European Union health workforce. The Europe 2020 Strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth highlights the need to reform labour markets, upgrade skills and match them with market demand. In parallel, we also need to plan for our ageing society and the additional health care which will be needed in the future. It is estimated that by 2020 there will be a shortfall of 1 000 000 health professionals in the European Union. We need to work together with all actors, national authorities, health professionals and civil society to address this challenge.”
