EPHA: Secretary General Monika Kosinska becomes member of the Stoiber Group
Congratulations to Monika Kosinska, Secretary General of the European Public Health Alliance (EPHA) who has recently become a member of the Stoiber Group.
The Stoiber Group, named after its Chairman Edmund Stoiber, is a High Level Group established by the European Commission in 2007 to advise it on reducing administrative burdens linked to its legislation.
This is the first time a health representative has become a member of the group and Monika Kosinska’s presence is a step in the right direction to balancing the composition of business representatives and civil society organisations in the group.
The call for greater representation of civil society was brought forward by the Green10 and other stakeholders including consumer groups and trade unions last year.
HEAL is a member of Green 10, which brings together ten of the largest European environmental organisations and networks, with a membership of over 20 million people.
