The EU 2013 work plan for the Health Programme is adopted

Dear SEE Health Network Members,

The EU has recently published its 2013 work plan for the health programme. See the link to it below as it is of highest importance to the SEE Health Network and its ongoing work under the auspices of the RCC to include health into the future SEE 2020 Strategy.

The recent news from the EU Portal recognise that:
"People’s health is a key asset for society and for the economy. A healthy population will play an important role in achieving the Europe 2020 targets for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.
Amidst the current economic crisis, this work plan will address new challenges in health, whilst also promoting work in more 'traditional' areas, and will pave the way for the new Health for Growth programme beginning in 2014 by bridging action between the current and the future programme."
