The Conference will be held on 27 April 2023 from 10:00 to 12:00 in Room ASP 3H1 at the European Parliament in Brussels, kindly hosted by Italian MEP Beatrice Covassi (S&D) and organised with the support of the MEPs Interest Group "European Patients' Rights & Cross-Border Healthcare".

This multi-stakeholder event represents a milestone in the policy dialogue process that first involved local, regional and national, and now European institutions. It is part of the final stage of the European project AHEAD which has received funding from the European Union’s EU CHAFEA – 3rd Health Programme. The ultimate aim of the event is to present to the European Institutions the main recommendations, tools and concrete proposals, based on analysis and research in the project countries (Italy, Moldova, the Netherlands, Romania and Serbia) to address the phenomenon of medical desertification. To give more people the opportunity to participate, the conference will be also web-streamed.
