Second Preparatory Meeting to 3rd Forum, Bled, 14-15 April 2011

On Thursday and Friday 14 and 15 April, the Slovene Ministry of Health hosts the second preparatory meeting in Bled ahead of the third South-eastern European Health Ministers’ Forum


The purpose of the meeting is to prepare the documents and starting points for discussion at the South-eastern European Health Ministers’ Forum to be held in Banja Luka between 13 and 14 October 2011.

At the preparatory meeting, representatives of South-eastern European and other partner countries and organisations will conduct an analysis of the activities of the South-eastern Europe Health Network in the last ten years, and examine in detail the main topic of the health ministers' forum, entitled "Health in All Policies in South-eastern Europe: A Shared Goal and Responsibility”.

The event will also be attended by national political coordinators of the South-eastern Europe Health Network or public health experts from the network's member states, along with representatives or experts of the Executive Committee of the South-eastern Europe Health Network, the WHO Regional Office for Europe, the Regional Cooperation Council, the International Organisation for Migration and the European Health Forum Gastein.

Ever since its beginnings, the Republic of Slovenia has supported the activities carried out by the internationally renowned South-eastern Europe Health Network: both as a partner state as well as a donor, which is why it has the honour to host the network's second preparatory meeting. Slovenia’s role in the South-eastern Europe Health Network has in the past often been noted and acknowledged by the network itself as well as its members and the network's closest partner, the WHO.
