EPF has launched two pilot working groups in 2014: access to healthcare and patient empowerment. Made of our members, the groups will meet twice a year for an initial mandate of three years to adopt a thematic approach to key policy areas.
The goals of this approach are to:
- strengthen the synergies between policy and programme work;
- increase the effectiveness of EPF’s policy work;
- put in place a working structure that can best deliver on the Strategic Plan 2014-2020.
This new method will ensure members are involved from the outset in EPF policy-formulation and activities. It will also help to ensure that the EPF Board and Secretariat focus EPF‘s work on areas that are considered as priority themes by our membership.
