Cittadinanzattiva - ACN invited to the #EHMA2023, in the focus session ‘Unveiling the potential of #vaccination registries in Europe.’ Panellists will share recommendations for better use of vaccination data, deployment of vaccination registries and best practices for implementing them.
The Roundtable event – supported by Active Citizenship Network - will see the launch of developed Recommendations to policymakers to improve the current level of fragmentation that high-risk patients experience across the European Union regarding Covid-19 care pathways. Together with the launching of recommendations, through the organisation of the event, European stakeholders, as well as representatives of national governments and civil society organisations, will be provided with a platform to further put the spotlight on the challenges relating to achieving the optimal care of COVID-19 patients and the enhancing of national healthcare systems. The event will not only see the discussions about the needed improvement when it comes to shortening of patient pathways, but also will address the topic of health system strengthening to prevent, prepare, and respond to future pandemics.

This multi-stakeholder event represents a milestone in the policy dialogue process that first involved local, regional and national, and now European institutions. It is part of the final stage of the project and is organized following the realization of several local roundtables with the involvement of the main stakeholders, together with representatives of the local and regional institutions of the 5 countries of the AHEAD consortium (Italy, Moldova, the Netherlands, Romania and Serbia).
The ultimate aim is to present to the European Institutions our main recommendations, tools and concrete proposals, based on our analysis and research in the project countries, to address the phenomenon of medical desertification. These were co-developed with the national institutions, to affirm and emphasise the commitment of the European institutions on an issue that is present in many countries.
