The Commonwealth Fund's 14th annual International Symposium on Health Care Policy, "Achieving a High Performing and Sustainable Health Care System: Bending the Cost Curve," brought together health ministers and 65 leading policy thinkers from Australia, Canada, France, Germany, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

Held in Washington, D.C., the symposium provided a forum for cross-national exchange as policymakers and experts examined different approaches being taken to address problems shared by our health care systems, and highlighted international innovations in policy and practice relevant to U.S. health reform.
