6th EHFCN Excellence Awards: call for nominations
For the 6th time the EHFCN Executive Committee (Award Committee) will grant two awards recognizing the particular action or initiative of one organisation and one individual respectively, at the occasion of the 11th EHFCN Conference in The Hague on 5 November 2015.
The Awards aim to stimulate best practices in counter fraud and counter corruption activities in healthcare. They also aim to promote the work of EHFCN by recognising a particular action or initiative which proves excellence in the field in a way that deserves credit and constitutes a tangible contribution to the promotion of the goals of EHFCN.
Study on Corruption in the Healthcare Sector
The "Study on Corruption in Healthcare", published by the European Commission, is the result of close cooperation between the European Healthcare Fraud and Corruption Network, ECORYS (Dutch Research and Consultancy Company) and country correspondents in 28 European Union Member States.
This study, being a first ever of such important dimensions, is a milestone in the fight against corruption in healthcare in Europe. The result is an explanatory overview of typologies, policies, practices and recommendations, illustrated with 86 cases of corruption in health. EHFCN has contributed considerably to this report that will serve as an important reference in the Network's campaign against corruption in the healthcare sector in Europe.
