Romania, with a population of 20 million, has one of the lowest ranking healthcare systems in the European Union in terms of efficiency, equity and outcomes. Vlad Voiculescu, who served briefly as the country’s minister of health, and now works in the private sector, has tackled the problem by founding three organizations to take on the challenges: an incubator staffed by health policy and marketing experts to support start-ups; a think tank for data-driven research, and a camp for children with cancer, inspired by actor Paul Newman’s Hole in the Wall Gang Camp in the United States. As an EF Fellow, Voiculescu met with American experts on health-care delivery, aiming to forge new partnerships that could benefit Romania, the countries of central and eastern Europe, and the United States.
