On September 8 2021, Dr. Mira Dasic, Director of the SEEHN Secretariat, met with Dr. Jelena Borovinic-Bojovic, Minister of Health of Montenegro.
The focus of the meeting was on the current cooperation, the potential for improvement in recognized areas, the planned projects in the upcoming period and how to strengthen and enhance the work of the Regional Health Development Centers (RHDC).
The COVID -19 pandemic has made it critically clear how utterly important is solidarity and our collective responsibility to exit the exceptional circumstances we face today.
Sustained efforts to ensure a coherent health security design and to strengthen the surveillance of emerging diseases is a regional necessity. By working together for a strong SEEHN, we can ensure that the SEE region is better prepared for future crises. This will contribute to achieve good health, well-being and prosperity in the countries of the SEE region.
These principles are also set out in the SEEHN Joint Statement address for the forthcoming WHO EURO RC meeting on 13-14 September.
