SHARE's Short trip to Prague

From March 14th to 17th, Faculty Association SHARE went on a short trip to Prague with 35 members. Here we had a very nice time and undertook many things. On Thursday we first did a guided city tour. This was a nice way to get to know Prague and see a large part of the city. A study-related activity was planned for Friday. We had already contacted "The Ministry of Health" in Prague a few months before, when it was finally arranged we attended three presentations on topics related to healthcare in the Czech Republic. The first topic was the organization of the health care system in the Czech Republic. What was surprising is that their system had a lot of similarities to the Dutch health care system. The second presentation was about the National Health Information System. They described how data was collected on all kinds of diseases and health characteristics. Finally, we reviewed a new project: National Action Plan for Alzheimer's. In the Czech Republic, a major problem is that people with dementia or Alzheimer's disease are diagnosed at a very late stage, and with this plan, the government is trying to get people with this disease help or guidance at an earlier stage. Afterwards we had the rest of our weekend to fill with fun things, such as a city game with fun assignments in the center of Prague, a visit to the Prague Castle, partying in the largest club of Europe. Here some unexpected things happened, which some of us will never forget! Lastly, we visited the zoo or the national museum and we organized an amazing pub crawl through the whole city ending with dancing till the sun came up. All in all, we had unique and very successful trip!

SHARE is the Faculty Association of the study ‘Health Policy and Management’ at the Erasmus University Rotterdam.
