Informal Meeting of Health Ministers in Valletta, Malta: round table

53 views

On 20 March 2017, Chris Fearne, Maltese Minister for Health chaired the Informal Meeting of Health Ministers in Valletta. The Informal Meeting of Health Ministers was the opportunity to discuss the prevention of childhood obesity, structured co-operation between health systems and HIV/AIDS. Rapid increases in the prevalence of overweight and obesity in children of all ages is posing a burden on EU countries. The Informal Meeting of Health Ministers called upon Health Ministers’ concerted efforts to explore ways of halting the rise in childhood obesity. Sustaining high quality health systems has become a key challenge for many policy makers seeking to reconcile fiscal sustainability targets with the provision of innovative and highly specialised technologies and services to citizens. During the informal meeting, Health Ministers discussed priority areas for enhanced voluntary cross-border collaboration in the procurement of health technologies for Rare Diseases and training of medical specialists. During the last decade, despite impressive gains in reducing the number of AIDS diagnoses, the burden of HIV infection remains unacceptably high in Europe. Health Ministers discussed how they can further scale up responses to fast track actions on HIV. This video shows extracts of the round table.
