01. – 02.09.2016

Europe remains a patchwork with respect to iodine deficiency prevention programmes, as national programmes are diverse and lack coordination. The EUthyroid project aims to coordinate national stakeholders and mobilise synergies. The second EUthyroid project meeting was held on 1 – 2 September 2016 and hosted by the Research Centre for Prevention and Health (RCPH) in Copenhagen. All work package leaders had the opportunity to discuss progress during the first 15 months of the project and outline their plans for the future.
