WHO/SOUTH-EASTERN EUROPE HEALTH NETWORK (SEEHN) MINISTERIAL MEETING ON ENSURING PRIMARY HEALTH CARE FOR AN AGEING POPULATION and 40th PLENARY MEETING OF THE SEEHN "ENSURING PRIMARY HEALTH CARE FOR AN AGEING POPULATION" 10 - 11 July 2018, Tel Aviv, Israel
Approaching are two important events to be held in Tel Aviv, the Ministerial WHO/SEEHN meeting on 10 July and the SEEHN 40th Plenary meeting on 11 July 2018.
SEEHN can proudly announce that the nine Member States will come together to find new ways for intensifying their collaboration and determining the next steps for joint action.
The meetings will cover the key technical issues including health system strengthening and primary health care, with a particular focus on ageing population and on vaccination as a critical public health intervention. The health ministers will discuss what assistance and follow-up action may be needed to ensure continued, efficient cooperation among SEEHN countries. In that regard, conclusions from the last meeting in Podgorica will be talked over.
In addition, the objectives of the meetings are to support the implementation of the International Health Regulations (2005) and emergency preparedness in SEEHN countries, and to debate the outcomes of the high-level regional meeting in Tallinn, Estonia, “Health Systems for Prosperity and Solidarity: leaving no one behind”. Finally, the health ministers will review country-specific and SEEHN joint statements for the upcoming session of the WHO Regional Committee for Europe in September 2018.
