The project “Construction of a network of cross-border health services” aims at improving the use and the performance of social-health services within the cross-border territory of the EGTC GO (Gorizia- Italy, Nova Gorica and Šempeter- Vrtojba- Slovenia), through a work of integration between the services and health facilities involved in the project.

The project contemplates the constitution of a network made up of excellences from both territories, considering the needs of the citizens and the necessity to renew the programming of the services in order to have an efficient system that will ensure the universal right to healthcare.

The project includes the establishment of three cross-border medical teams in the field of mental health, autism and physiological pregnancy and the creation of a single centre for the booking
of social and health services shared by Italian and Slovenian health facilities. The project contemplates also some solutions for the inclusion of disadvantaged groups in order to integrate social assistance services. The project is developed with the collaboration of the Slovenian Ministry of Health and the Autonomous Region of Friuli Venezia Giulia (Italy). It is part of the Programme  Interreg V-A 2014-2020 Italy- Slovenia with a total budget of 5.000.000 Euros and it will run for the period 2017-2021.
