Workshop "Territorial impact assessment - Cross-border health threats"

This expert workshop is supporting the opinion tackling cross-border health threats and the mandate of the ecdc through analysis of the territorial impact of the proposed legislation.

Local and regional authorities define, deliver and manage a whole range of services that can make a positive difference and impact on how people use cross-border health services, as well as face the threats.
