Twining and hospital partnership

Joint signing of the international hospital partnership agreement


Hospital Partnerships between Project Pilot Hospitals and EU-based hospitals are under development. First actions have been taken under the Project Component 4.5.2 to make full use of other existing twinning, partnership and exchange programmes beyond the present Project and to support mechanisms of exchange and peer counseling.

In the course of the joint efforts made by European countries, both parties are developing their cooperation in the area of social policy and organisation of the fundamental issues in the health sector.
