Ministry of Health:

Between 2002 and 2007 I was coordinator in the unit for EU-enlargement and the Council of Europe in the Ministry of Health, welfare and sport.
We were mainly dealing with bilateral Matra and EU Phare Twinning projects to prepare the Baltic States, Poland, Czech and Slowak Republic, Hungary, Romania en Bulgaria for accession to the European Union.There were even some projects in Russia (mainly on primary health care), and I also visited Almaty where the famous declaration on primary health care was made in 1978. In this article in Dutch I was interviewed on the issue of infectious diseases.

Projects included improving Public health in Lithuania, Drug policy in Romania, Professional qualifications in Poland etc. Our task was to support Dutch organisations in acquiring those projects (at least the EU projects) and to be there during official seminars.
