On 1 March 2024, EUREGHA successfully concluded the series of its Working Groups’ constitutive meetings 2024 with the kick-off of the Working Group on Cross-border Healthcare.

Regional experts gathered to define 2024 priorities and to set the work plan for the year. Participants actively engaged in discussions, shared project updates, and highlighted the importance of effective communication and engagement strategies in cross-border initiatives.

Thematic priorities and key discussion points were emphasized, affirming the commitment to effective communication, collaboration, and the sharing of best practices in cross-border healthcare. Among the topics raised were INTERREG, citizens’ participation and empowerment, the movement of healthcare professionals across borders, legal obstacles, and many others.  Encouraging bi- and multi-lateral exchanges between members remains the core of WG meetings and activities.

Looking ahead to 2024, the EUREGHA Cross-Border Healthcare Working Group will keep fostering cooperation, addressing challenges, and advancing the cause of cross-border healthcare across European regions throughout the year and beyond.


About the Working Group on Cross-border Healthcare:

The Working Group on Cross-border Healthcare is a platform where EUREGHA members – regional representatives and experts – can exchange knowledge, best practices, information, and expertise on cross-border healthcare and related issues. The WG aims, on one side, to facilitate knowledge exchange between members and, on the other side, to improve members’ and network’s advocacy, policy, and project actions at EU level.
