The EU-funded project Technical Cooperation Programme to the Ministry of Public Health started mid-April in Afghanistan and will run for two years. Implemented by EPOS and Belgian consortium partner AEDES, the overall objective of the project is to strengthen the capacity of the Ministry of Public Health to manage the provision of preventive and curative health services and the development of the Afghan public health system including financial and human resources as well as infrastructure and equipment.

The project team held a mobilisation meeting at EPOS headquarters in Bad Homburg, Germany from 2-4 April to discuss the project start-up and to plan project activities. Participants over the three day period included EPOS and AEDES staff as well as the project Team Leader and the Key Expert 3 for Mental Health.
