On 27 March 2017 the new Head of the Secretariat of the South-Eastern Europe Health Network (SEEHN) Dr. Mira Jovanovski-Dasic met with the Deputy Minister of Health of the Republic of Macedonia Mr. Jovica Andovski. This was the first official activity of Dr Jovanovski-Dasic in the capacity of the Head of the SEEHN Secretariat.
Deputy Minister Andovski pointed out that the Republic of Macedonia is fully committed to cooperation within the framework of the SEEHN as the key initiative for addressing health issues in the region.
Dr. Jovanovski-Dasic gave an insight into future plans for continuation of the successful collaboration and potentials for its further development. She also shared information about the 4th South-Eastern Europe Health Ministerial Forum which will take place in 3-4 April 2017 in Chisinau, Moldova.
Mr. Andovski and Dr. Jovanovski-Dasic agreed that there are many challenges in this region, in the field of health at different levels: political, technical and administrative. SEEHN in the past 15 years has proved to have huge potentials to be a sustainable initiative of regional ownership. It is expected that SEEHN through the establishment of its own Secretariat will particularly highlight these possibilities .
