In September 2018 a Nordic network for priorities in health was established as a result of a pre-conference meeting to the Priorities 2018 conference in Linköping, Sweden. The pre-conference meeting gathered participants from Norway, Finland and Sweden giving presentations on ongoing research and policy work within the different countries. The meeting gave rise to a number of cooperative efforts from the participants and at the end of the meeting it was decided to establish an informal Nordic network on priorities in health, administered by the Swedish National Centre for Priorities in Health.
Following the meeting the Nordic network will offer a set of cooperative opportunities:
- A joint e-mail list where news can be distributed and contacts established.
- Publishing of interesting links to organizations, and events at this web-site.
- A joint meeting in conjunciton with the National conference on priority setting, organized by the Swedish National Centre every other year in Sweden.
