The SEPEN (Support for the health workforce planning and forecasting expert network) Joint Tender has announced that five new projects kicked-off in 2021 under the scope of "Support to reforms in the health workforce field". The three key topics to be investigated thoroughly in the coming years are the following: medical deserts, task shifting and retention policies.

The projects mainly focus on mapping existing tools, practices and methodology, and they will all produce tangible outputs and deliverables that will be available for decision makers in the Member States for further use. The projects also aim to facilitate experience exchange and foster knowledge sharing in the three key topics via online events and dialogues.

The SEPEN Joint Tender has now finished its activities. We'd like to congratulate everyone involved from Semmelweis University, the University of Leuven, the Italian Ministry of Health, the Italian National Agency for Regional Health Services (AGENAS), and the Standing Committee of European Doctors (CPME).
