The Malta Health Network (MHN) is an umbrella organisation which brings together health related organisations. The MHN represents 40 member organisations, amounting to representation of over 12,000 families. MHN strives to give patients an informed voice in health-related matters in Malta, in the EU and internationally. The main objectives of MHN are patient empowerment, patient advocacy and training, and also aims at providing an efficient platform where all our members can network and achieve common goals through sharing of resources.
MHN promotes the health-related interests of patients and the wider community by updating itself about international ‘best practices’ and ‘capacity-building’. The MHN achieves this through its regular contacts with local and international health-related Governmental Organisations, Non-Governmental Organisations, ‘Not-for-Profit’ Organisations and Patient Representative Groups. Since its establishment in 2007, MHN has carried out several projects with an aim to improve the Maltese healthcare scenario. Over the years they have been involved in various initiatives and partnered in several projects involving patient empowerment, education, and advocacy.
