The College of Commissioners welcomed Androulla Vassiliou, recently appointed as Member of the EC in charge of Health, after the resignation of Markos Kyprianou. It was her first day at the weekly meeting of the European Commission, on 5 March 2008. The Members of the EC analysed the EU's policy towards the Western Balkans and were expected to approve a new document aimed to support civil society in the region and to increase the number of possibilities for its citizens to travel or study in the EU. The European Commission also proposed ways to reinforce the EU capacity to respond to disasters by improving the coordination between Member States in case of natural or other types of catastrophes
