Dear Health Policy Platform and other colleagues, We invite you to join:               

Open Virtual Meeting of the “Supporting Ukraine, neighbouring EU Member States and Moldova” HPP Network

The Co-Chairs and Liaisons of the “Supporting Ukraine, neighbouring EU Member States and Moldova” Health Policy Platform Network are pleased to invite you to an open webinar on Wednesday 25 May 2022 from 15:00 to 16:30 CEST.

Following the recent Virtual Network meeting held on Tuesday 26 April, the Co-Chairs and Liaisons have met to review all the comments and feedback received and four work priorities have emerged:   
    1)  Supporting displaced Ukrainian patients, including support on EU Member State to   Member State transfers, removing bottlenecks and harmonisation of rules in different Member States
    2)  Facilitating partnerships and funding support for civil society organisations in Ukraine, Moldova and impacted EU Member States
    3)  Mental health support for refugee patients and healthcare professionals
    4)  Recognition and support for healthcare professionals arriving in EU Member States and Moldova, e.g. professional qualification recognition   

In addition, a transversal issue to be addressed with DG SANTE’s advice and support would be the establishment of a communication and liaison channel for organisations within the Network to/from the Ukrainian Ministry of Health.                   

The Co-Chairs have requested that each organisation participating to the next Open Virtual Meeting of Wednesday 25 May indicate their availability to contribute to one or more of the priority areas listed above.

Please click here to fill the poll set by our colleagues from DG SANTE at your earliest convenience, indicating one or more of the priority areas listed above that you would like to be included in.
