On 1 April, the Faculty of Business and Tourism hosts a special lecture on sustainable and responsible health signed between Complutense University (Complutense) and the Spanish Private Medical Union (ASPE). The lecture will be given by Ana. Isabel Rosado The lecture will be directed by Professor Ana Isabel Rosado and is also supported by the Spanish Medical Association (OMC), CEOE and the Association of Self-Employed Persons (ATA).

Rosado believes that the lecture will help build a better society, a sentiment echoed by ASPE President Carlos Rus, who believes that “public-private partnerships are a key tool to improve people’s lives”. A life disrupted largely by the pandemic, in which public and private healthcare played a fundamental role in mitigating its effects.

Rus is confident that the extraordinary President will provide rigorous analysis, both for the health sector and for the public and the media. It is, in short, an exercise that relies on the combined efforts of many parties, “from which everyone can benefit”. As Professor Ana Rosado from the Department of Applied Economics, Structures and History explains, “defending consumers and their rights” is one of the foundations of the Faculty of Business and Tourism, and thanks to this particular collaboration, Complutense University’s skills will be shared and applied “so that we can enjoy a truly responsible and sustainable healthcare system in Spain”.

Francisca Blasco, Dean of the Faculty of Business and Tourism is delighted that this lecture will be developed in a faculty that represents “two of the main sectors of the Spanish economy, as they account for 25% of our country’s GDP”. Blasco also emphasised that healthcare is fundamental to minimise risks for workers, both in these two sectors and in other sectors of the labour market.

Juan Carlos Doadrio, Vice-Rector for Institutional Relations, insisted on the importance of public-private partnerships to promote “research, teaching and dissemination of knowledge”, which will be discussed at ASPE as well as at Ana. This will be made a reality by ASPE and Professors Ana Rosado and Sonia Juárez and is linked to the social objective of “sustainable development”.
