Patients Conference

The first patients’ conference in Cyprus is happening. This is yet another initiative by organized patients.

The Pancyprian Federation of Patient Associations and Friends is organizing the first conference titled “Shaping Tomorrow in the Healthcare Sector.”

The conference is being held on the occasion of the European Patients’ Rights Day and nearly a year after the passing of the law proposal for mandatory consultation of the state with the Pancyprian Federation. It aims to inform the public.

The conference will be broadcasted live by Cytanet’s Live Streaming service, the official telecommunications provider of the conference.
