As early as the year 2000, close public health collaboration was established in South-Eastern Europe within the framework of the European Stability Pact. By 2004 the Forum for Public Health in South Eastern Europe (FPH-SEE) was established by public health professionals and academics; since 2001 the South East Europe Health Network (SEEHN) was also created, closely linking the national Ministries of Health in that region, and WHO Europe. The two papers below by Christiane Wiskow et al. and by Maria Ruseva et al. – published 2015 and 2016 in the South Eastern European Journal of Public Health (SEEJPH) – recorded the achievements and compared the two complementary strategies.
