On January 16, 2019, the Canis Majoris Foundation hosted the meeting of the Coordination Committee of the Health, Research and Welfare Working Group promoted by the Spanish Association of Foundations (AEF).
This working group, consisting of foundations submerged in the promotion of health, prevention through the dissemination of information and healthy practices, research, the study of social and health problems, social awareness and direct assistance in assistance projects, aims to strengthen collaboration among these institutions and thus create synergies that drive this sector.
The meeting saw important proposals made in order to prepare the program plan of activities for this year 2019. Areas such as organizing the first Meeting of Spanish and German Foundations, making good use of the coworking space of the Impact Hub Barceló centre to discuss health issues and prepare a group Declaration on the occasion of “World Health Day”, among other matters.
Next February 1st, the Canis Majoris Foundation will once again host the plenary meeting of the group in which proposals for initiatives and activities that have been analyzed and evaluated by the coordination committee will be presented.
