The EFPC Position Paper, coordinated by Danica Rotar and Pim de Graaf, has been published in the Slovenian Journal of Public Health. The online version is now available and emphasises the fact that Roma populations’ have low health status and limited access to health services, including primary care. This has been documented in many European countries, and warrants specific health policies and practices.

The EFPC is seeking for the secretariat in Utrecht, The Netherlands, a new young colleague to strengthen its' capacity and increase the output of its' activities.

Interested? Have a look at the job-description and write your application letter for this challenging position! Deadline 1 June!

In collaboration with some of our close partners we have been able to assure a side event during the upcoming 69th World Health Assembly in Geneva. The session will take place at the opening day Tuesday 23 May from 18.00 - 19.30 and will attract many WHO member states to inform themselves on the latest developments within the Primary Care domain.

Some more very good news! The official journal of the EFPC, Primary Health Care Research & Development, will be included in Thomson Reuters' Journal Citation Reports (JCR) / Science Edition. In May/June this year they will get their first impact factor.

Congratulations to the Cambridge University Press team and in particularly to the chief editors, Sally Kendall and Ros Bryar.
