New important events – Uemo Bulletin n.1 2016

Dear UEMO Members,

Since the end of 2015, several important events have taken place. Globally, the world continue to be plagued by the Zika outbreak, which was recently announced by the WHO as a public health emergency of international concern. Meanwhile, at EU level, the Netherlands assumed presidency of the European Council on 1st January and will steer the agenda of the Council for the next six months.

At UEMO, we have also hit the ground running. Our new Vice-President Daniel Widmer was recently interviewed by the Swiss Journal of General Practice, which in the future will seek to report more on the activities of UEMO.

At the end of last year, the ENS4Care project came to a close and had a great opportunity to host its final event in conjunction with the 7th European Innovation Summit, which was held in the European Parliament in Brussels. More about that and much else in this issue.

 

Aldo LUPO

UEMO President
