The full history of the South-eastern Health Network

The South-eastern Health Network (SEEHN) was established on the 8th April 2001 at its first meeting held in Sofia, Bulgaria. Its founding partners are the Council of Europe and WHO Regional office for Europe in collaboration with the Council of Europe Development Bank in the framework of the Social Cohesion Initiative of the Stability Pact for South East Europe.

To date, the SEEHN is an independent organization of its 10 Member States with its own governing, managerial and technical institutions. It operates as one of the over 60 Regional Initiatives in various sectors of society under the framework, coordination and leadership of the Regional Cooperation Council in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina and as a part of the overall Regional Cooperation process in SEE.

A lot of time has passed since the SEEHN commencement. It is, however, useful to recall of the past looking into the future.

The full history, accomplishments and developments can be followed for those that are interested using the WHO Europe public website where the SEEHN has its own pages:
