Dear EFPC members,

For the upcoming EFPC General Assembly in Riga on the 4th of September we would like to invite members to come up with nominations for Advisory Board membership for the next 3 years. Deadline to respond: 12 August.

Three Advisory Board members, Niro Siriwardena, Giorgio Visentin and Marije Bolt have informed us to end their availability for different reasons. We thank them all for their devoted time and energy for the Forum.

In the context of implementing Horizon 2020 (H2020), the European Union’s Research and Innovation Framework Programme, the EFPC has provided its' comments to the development of the work programme 2018-2020 defining the calls and action that will implement the Framework Programme.

Friday 27 May, we received the positive news that the EFPC has been accepted as an official member for the Health Care Professionals Working Party of EMA for the period 2016-2019. Our Italian and Dutch members, Walter Marrocco and Pieter van den Hombergh, will be our official representatives.

The International Federation of Community Health Centres (IFCHC) was involved in a side event on Monday 23/5 at the World Health Assembly in Geneva. It was organized by two main partners, World Federation of Public Health Associations (WFPHA) and Towards Unity for Health (TUFH).
