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.
The topics discussed were:
- Presentation of the 2019 annual work plan and funding opportunities.
- Address vaccination disparities. - Knowledge of countries to support the formulation of policies based on concrete data.
- Strengthening of EU cooperation in health technology assessment (HTA).
- Health and digital assistance: preparation for the future.
The forum also gave the opportunity to network and share the ITAMA project.
