“I’m also delighted to be launching a report on the state of the health workforce and a series of country insights which we produced with the European Observatory on Health Systems & Policies for the Eastern part of our region”, she stated.

At this event, the WHO Euro Regional Committee will be welcoming health ministers and high-level delegates of the 53 Member States of the WHO European Region, as well as representatives of partner organizations and civil society.

These meetings are set to be “an opportunity to reflect on progress so far and further steps needed to implement the European Programme of Work (EPW) 2020–2025 – ‘United Action for Better Health in Europe’”, WHO stated.

“A particular focus will be on the EPW’s contribution to advancing health and well-being at the country level,” the organisation added.

Concluding her post, Dr Azzopardi Muscat highlighted how said meeting “comes at a critical moment for health systems in Europe.”

A qualified Medical Doctor, Dr Azzopardi Muscat joined WHO in February 2020 as a Senior Advisor for WHO EURO. After around three months in said position, she enjoyed a promotion to Director of Country Health Policies and Systems.
