The Government of Catalonia has set up its Health Advisory Council, whose mission is to provide Minister Alba Vergés with its expert advice in defining the country’s health model for the forthcoming years.
The Council is presided over by Manel Balcells, currently the director of the CIMTI and the health commissioner of Leitat. It also includes renowned professionals in the fields of healthcare, medicine, society and economics, such as Pere Joan Cardona, director of the Experimental Tuberculosis Unit at the Germans Trias i Pujol Health Sciences Research Institute and cofounder of the company Manremyc, which is associated with CataloniaBio & HealthTech, among other positions.
