Meeting report of the 5th high-level meeting of small countries (2018)



Working Together for Better Health and Well-being for All

5th High-level Meeting of Small Countries, Reykjavik, Iceland, 26–27 June 2018

The Small Countries Initiative was established in 2013, and has developed into a platform through which the eight Member States in the WHO European Region with populations of less than 1 million – Andorra, Cyprus, Iceland, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, Montenegro and San Marino – share their experiences in implementing Health 2020, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its Sustainable Development Goals and the WHO European roadmap to implement the 2030 Agenda. Members meet yearly to take stock of their progress, experience and challenges in
improving population health and reducing health inequities. Fully resonating with the very essence of both Health 2020 and the 2030 Agenda, the Fifth High-level Meeting of the Small Countries, with the theme of working together for better health and well-being for all, addressed a technical agenda informed by the latest European and global events, positioning the Initiative as a unique, forward-thinking platform.
