Building resilience to improve health and well-being in Malta

A workshop discussing 'Building Resilience to improve Health and Well-Being in Malta' was held on the 17 October 2017 at the University Residence in Lija. In the context of health, resilience is defined as the combination of processes and skills that result in good individual and community health outcomes in spite of negative events, serious threats and hazards. 

This event was organised jointly by the Directorate for Health Information and Research (DHIR), and the WHO Collaborating Centre on Health Systems and Policies in Small States at the Islands and Small States Institute (ISSI), University of Malta. This was made possible through the support of the World Health Organisation (WHO) Venice Office and the Biennial Collaboration Agreement between Malta and the WHO Regional Office for Europe. The workshop brought together policy-makers and academics from various sectors that contribute to health and well-being.
