Report on CEEDVA Meeting in Prague - 2001

CEEDVA Meeting in Prague
Annual Report 2001


       0. Introduction
       # several contacts by letters, e-mail, tax, phone or direct persona! meeting have stressed out that the East European Countries (EEC) have similar problems regarding the status of dermatology:
  • reduced level of investments in buildings and laboratory equipment
  • lacks of correlation between theoretic knowledge and practice methods of diagnose
  • particular epidemiology of dermato-venereologic disease (ex. STD, AIDS)
  • best speciaiists exode in western countries
  • difficulties in promoting western health and health-insurance laws
       # western dermatologists don't understand well the transition processes from a centralized health system to the flexible present one based on national health insurance and private practice and eastern dermatologists experience hard times in adapting to the new system
       # a common platform for discussions, changing information and sharing experience will be of great benefit for EEC dermatologists in order to attend the western standard
       # a CEEDVA reunite a prominent group of EEC with the aim of promoting continuing medical education. CEEDVA utility is recognized by ali EEC members participating in public seances (Warsaw, Plovdiv. Nice, Amsterdam, Munich)
       # for better co-operation CEEDVA activates under EADV umbrella

       I. Problems related to EADV
  1. Steering Committee
    # there is great dissipation of forces due to personal initiatives of national leaders
