MHN strives to give patients an informed voice in health-related matters in Malta, in the EU and internationally. The main objectives of MHN are patient empowerment, patient advocacy and training, and also aims at providing an efficient platform where all our members can network and achieve common goals through sharing of resources. MHN is affiliated with various European and International organisations and is regarded with high esteem amongst these groups. Over the years we have been involved in various initiatives and partnered in several projects involving patient empowerment, education, and advocacy.
The MHN is independent of the Government of Malta and of any political party or organization. The MHN is especially active in promoting The European Charter of Patients’ Rights.
MHN promotes the health-related interests of patients and the wider community by updating itself about international ‘best practices’ and ‘capacity-building’. The MHN achieves this through its regular contacts with local and international health-related Governmental Organisations, Non-Governmental Organisations, ‘Not-for-Profit’ Organisations and Patient Representative Groups. Since its establishment in 2007, MHN has carried out several projects with an aim to improve the Maltese healthcare scenario.
