Activity Synopsis (ID# 16663) (Hide Synopsis)

Objective(s) The meeting was convened by UNMIK representatives with the aim to reflect on the possibilities of co-operation and the future role of SISP in eauipping the Provisional Authorities of Kosovo with the necessary skills to establish the new health insurance and health systems in Kosovo. 
Output/Results The SISP can not give significance to the Provisional Authorities independent of UNMIK before Kosovo's final status is solved. The co-operation is therefore limited. 
Conclusions/Follow Up UNMIK/Kosovo will still have a status of an observer at the SISP Regional Steering Committee 
Participants R. McClelland, UNMIK
