Yesterday, at the Sir Anthony Mamo Oncology Center, we had the pleasure of attending an important meeting on "Results and knowledge of the health program". Mr. Joseph Abela, Director (Programme Implementation) within the Ministry for Health of Malta, chaired the meeting and introduced two important members of the European Commission: Jean-Luc Sion, Head of Policy - DG santé Health and Chronic Disease Unit Program and Antoinette Martiat, Project Manager - Chafea, Health Unit.
ITAMA was officially launched in Malta on the 30th of January 2019. The event gathered all the partners together to present the project to attendees from different backgrounds. The launch was mainly aimed at informing stakeholders from local schools about the need for this screening project, the benefit for the children taking part in the program and the way the testing is planned to be performed.
