In the second part of 2022, after two years of seeing each other only online, the NDPHS Expert Groups and governing bodies resumed in person meetings. The Committee of Senior Representatives met in Stockholm on 8-9 September 2022, with participants from Estonia, Finland, Germany, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Sweden, EEAS, BEAC, IOM, WHO, as well as the NDPHS Secretariat and NDPHS Expert Groups.
The meeting discussed issues such as the future of the Partnership, the new NDPHS Strategy and the pressing themes of antimicrobial resistance and mental health, as well as the NDPHS’ role as Policy Area Coordinator for Health in the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region.
The Partners expressed their strong commitment to continue the collaboration within the Partnership, at the same time using the opportunity to review the work of the Partnership, including its political orientation, focus topics, as well as expanding the geographical collaboration to countries previously not covered, such as Ukraine.
The next meeting of the Committee of Senior Representatives will take place in June 2023 in Stockholm.
