Watch the recording of our latest webinar on our country reports on medical deserts

On September 16th, the AHEAD team organised a webinar about the different manifestations – or ‘faces’ – of medical deserts in Italy, Moldova, the Netherlands, Romania and Serbia. We shared the key findings of our country research on medical deserts in Italy, Moldova, the Netherlands, Romania and Serbia with the audience. For example, we found several common root causes of medical desertification in these countries, such as increased health care need among the population and a low number of health workers.

It was an interactive webinar during which attendees were given the opportunity to ask questions. We were also pleased that Katarzyna Ptak Bufkens of the Directorate-General for Health and Food Safety of the European Commission kicked off the webinar with a compelling keynote speech!

Why the consensus building methodology is essential for health workforce policies

One of our project’s unique selling points is our participatory consensus building methodology.  

Literature shows that successful implementation of health workforce policies requires strong inter-sectoral governance and consensus building among the different stakeholders involved. We have therefore set out to draft, test and validate a consensus building methodology, in order to increase the chances of successfully counteracting medical deserts. 

Want to know more about what this methodology – developed under the leadership of our partner VU Athena Institute, and contributed by all partners- entails? Have a look at our presentation 

After nearly 2 years, a wonderful AHEAD team meeting in Amsterdam! 

Even though we started working together since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, the AHEAD partners never got to meet each other in person… until last month! We had two fruitful in-depth strategic programme days at the Wemos (AHEAD lead partner organisation) office, and concluded the first day with a great team outing in the city of Amsterdam! Thank you to all AHEAD partners! 

(A)heads up: our next webinar will take place on November 21st at 12.00-13.00! 

Stay tuned for more information!
