This morning the MC had a meeting about the developments of the Corona virus and the consequences for our games.
Our MC members Jenny Björk and Raymond van Rykel were from 12th to 14th November 2019 to Brussels to the EPF Congress 2019.
The European Patients’ Platform (EPF) is an umbrella organization that works with patients’ groups in public health and health advocacy across Europe.
EPF’s vision is that all patients with chronic disease in Europe have access to high-quality – patient-centered health and related care.
EPF helps to empower patients’ organizations through educational seminars, policy initiatives and projects but also coordinate best practice exchanges between patient and organizations at National and European levels.
At the 15./16. September 2019 we had an MC meeting of the EHLTF. Several questions and points will be dealt with. Nikos was invited to help with one of the points at the final part of the first day. We also decided to participate in the EUROPEAN DONOR DAY 2019 ➜ at the 12th October in London.
We look forward to the next EHLTC in Vitoria Gasteiz (Spain). Vitoria Gasteiz is the capital of the Basque Country. At the final evening in Lignano, the EHLTF flag was handed over to the representatives from Spain (Maite San Saturnino, Emilio Bautista Soto).
