Parliamentary delegation at the WHO’s meeting - day one

A meeting - two-day workshop is being held in Tallinn, on 14–15 January 2020, in the organisation of the World Health Organisation (WHO). The workshop is focused on the strengthening of intersectoral work aimed at tackling violence against children in priority countries

There is ample evidence that prevention of violence against children is more cost-effective than coping with serious and far-reaching health consequences in adults. This evidence is set out in publications: “Implementing Child Maltreatment Prevention Programmes:  What the Experts Say” and “INSPIRE: Seven strategies for Ending Violence Against Children” made by the WHO and the Global Partnership to End Violence Against Children.

Chairperson of the Committee on Health, Labour and Social Welfare Mr Suad Numanović held presentation during the first panel titled:  The role of parliamentarians in implementing the INSPIRE Strategy - Lessons from the "Pathfinder" countries on setting and changing standards. Chairperson of the Committee Mr Numanović answered questions together with parliamentarians from Romania, Armenia, Estonia and Moldova.

Stakeholders from Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia, Armenia, Republic of Moldova, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Georgia, Montenegro and Romania participated in today's meeting.

The delegation of the Parliament of Montenegro is represented by the Chairperson of the Committee on Health, Labour and Social Welfare Mr Suad Numanović, Chairperson of the Committee on Human Rights and Freedoms Mr Halil Duković and the Mr Nikola Divanović, MP.
