A delegation from Monaco, composed of Isabelle Rosabrunetto, Department of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation and Dr Alexandre Bordero, Director of Health Action, has been taking part in the fourth High Level Meeting of the European States of the World Health Organisation, held in Malta on June 26 and 27.
The theme of this session is “building resilient societies”, and follows a summit held in the Principality on October 11 and 12, 2016. While more general questions are on the agenda, such as “How to improve the ability of societies to resist and then rebound from health crisis situations”, more concrete issues like ensuring enough skilled health personnel, were also considered.
Access to the most innovative medicines and how to fight obesity were also on the agenda.
