Health care cooperatives, Euricse in Brazil to participate in OCB’s programme
The experience of health cooperatives, active in Brazil for over half a century, is being presented this week to policy makers and representatives of financial institutions through the project “Conhecer para Cooperar”. The last module of the initiative, launched by Sistema OCB, takes place today and presents how cooperatives contribute to the improvement of health indicators in Brazil through drivers such as governance, strategy and management. The event will be held at the headquarters of the Organization of Brazilian Cooperatives (OCB), in Brasilia.
One of the highlights of today’s programme is the speech by Gianluca Salvatori, Secretary General of the European Institute for Research on Cooperatives and Social Enterprises (Euricse). This morning he will talk about the experiences of health cooperatives around the world and, in the afternoon, he will talk about the role of innovation, new technologies and their impact on cooperatives – factors that promise to significantly improve products, processes, organizational methods and markets.
Finally, there will also be a round table to discuss the laws and regulations affecting the cooperative movement.
