The ERRIN Health Working Group aims to support WG members with early intelligence, regular updates, about EU level health policy-related issues, funding opportunities for them to function as project facilitators towards their regional stakeholders. The Health working group works as a means to create collaboration between the members in order to develop common EU projects. WG is also a vehicle for profile raising and promotion of good practices, projects within the regions. Members are invited to put forward their relevant proposals and use each meeting to share their partner searches for their on-going/upcoming initiatives with their peers.
