Dear EFPC members,

I am Sanne Snoeijs and I am very happy to introduce myself to you as the new member of the EFPC team! Starting from November 1st, I will strengthen the EFPC team as junior coordinator. I will be working in close cooperation with Diederik and Marianne and I  am very excited to start this interesting and dynamic job. I am looking forward to meeting you all in person. Perhaps in Riga or elsewhere in Europe, in the wonderful field of primary care.

Primary Care in Ukraine by Prof Oleksii Korzh from the Kharkiv University

"The economic support of the primary health care system remains inadequate. The state spends only 5-7% of the whole health care budget for primary health care, which is not reaching the targeted 30%."

If this the first EFPC member column you read; have a look at the other 14 contributions from EFPC members with countries like Lithuania, Portugal, Sweden and more! Or write your own member column about primary care in your own country.

Primary Health Care Research & Development (PHCR&D) becomes EFPC official journal.

The EFPC and Cambridge University Press have signed an agreement for the coming years to support each other goals. This restores the EFPC opportunity to publish our material like Position Papers in a well-respected scientific journal. We look forward to a fruitful collaboration!
