Public health menu
Between 4-6 June 2013, the National Development Agency, as the designated programme operator of the Public Health Initiatives Programme Area organised several professional events in order to foster the implementation of the programme area and strengthen bilateral relations. The events were organised in close cooperation with the Ministry of Human Resources and the National Institute for Health Development.
On 5 June, a Workshop on Mental Health took place with the participation of more than 100 professionals primarily from the field of mental health development, which forms the main focus of the Public Health Initiative Programme. Participants of the workshop could familiarize themselves with and discuss the mental health components of the programme area, while lecturers from the donor state provided insights into the ongoing initiatives and best practices in their country. Mr Miklós Szócska, the Minister of State for Health, also gave a speech at the event.
On the preceding and following days of the workshop, the experts from Norway had the opportunity to visit Hungarian institutions working in the field, where they could learn about the relevant current programmes and initiatives and consult with professionals on the possible directions of building bilateral relations within the framework of the Norwegian Financial Mechanism.
