|19 January||NDPHS contributes to the development of the European Union’s Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region|
The EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region is being developed by the European Commission in response to the request made by the European Council in December 2007.
The development of the Strategy is based, inter alia, on a series of open consultations that took/will take place during late 2008 and early 2009. The NDPHS actively takes part in the development of the Strategy by contributing its views during regional consultation events, as well as by having presented its position paper to the Commission.
In its position paper, the NDPHS stated that, thanks to its regional character and unique composition, it had both the capacity for policy and strategy formulation as well as for the implementation of concrete measures. Because of this, it continued, it was well equipped to make its contribution to the implementation of the Strategy, and was prepared to do so.
The basic premise of the NDPHS position paper was that there is a need to properly address the issues of public health and social well-being as important cross-cutting factors for the prosperity, security and attractiveness of the Baltic Sea Region in the Strategy. Following this, the NDPHS proposed three strategic actions within its prioritised areas for inclusion in the Action Plan, along with several accompanying project proposals.
