ELPA would like to congratulate Milan Mishkovikj, ELPA Director, for having been elected Vice President of the “Alliance of Patient Organizations” of Macedonia.
The “Alliance of Patient Organisations” is an organisation gathering patient organisations from FYROM – North Macedonia (Created in 2016).
The organisation’s objectives are:
- to provide access to treatment, improve the conditions of treatment and enhance the patients’ quality of life;
- to develop health policies at national level to protect patients’ rights;
- to foster the cooperation between state bodies, health organisations and healthcare professionals in the design and implementation of strategies, criteria, standards, best practices in the health care of Macedonia.
The participation of an ELPA Director in the governing board of the Alliance is an extremely important sign of how Patients’ associations should work together at the national and international level because only together we are stronger.
