OASES project organised its first EU wide conference on the 10th December 2021,  with the aim to describe medical desert phenomenon through the use of specific indicators. In this occasion we involved experts from the other projects acting in the field of medical desert problems in order to coordinate the actions under this call.

On the 23rd of September 2021 we met the EU Member States’s representative in the frames of the first 
Policy Board meeting.
This was the occasion to present them the OASES project and objectives and start a dialogue with them about the medical desertification in their own country, with specific focus on the methods in use to identify those areas characterized by lack or difficulties to access the health care services.

The official launch event of the Health Workforce Projects Cluster was held on the
 20 September 2021 on the Webex system of the EU Health Policy Platform.
The Health Workforce Projects Cluster covers five EU co-funded projects under the umbrella of the 3rd Health Programme. The projects focus on three key topics – medical deserts, task shifting and retention policies.
