This issue opens with a short article informing about the outcomes of the ministerial-level Partnership Annual Conference (PAC), which took place in St. Petersburg and marked the end of the Russian chairmanship of the NDPHS. Among the Conference’s highlights were the signing the Agreement on the Establishment of the NDPHS Secretariat, the adoption of the NDPHS position paper aimed to raise the profile of health and social well-being and the approval of the NDPHS Action Statement on Non-communicable Diseases. The position paper and Action Statement are described in separate articles.
Further, we write about the outcomes of the 3rd Senior Officials Meeting of the renewed Northern Dimension, as well as the 2nd Annual Forum of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region and the NDPHS’ contribution to these two events.
Following the above is an article by Professor Pekka Puska on prevention of the global epidemic of Non-communicable diseases and an article written by the NGO “YLA” on a project aimed at preventing the spread of HIV and TB in the Kaliningrad Oblast, Russia.
You will also find updates about the activities of the Swedish ESF Council towards strengthening the social dimension in the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region (EUSBSR), as well as the ScanBalt BioRegion, which strives to turn Northern Europe into a globally recognized health and life sciences “macro region”.
