An excerpt from the newsletter:
"EAHSA sets light on green for merger with E.D.E.
The EAHSA General Assembly has given its approval for a merger with E.D.E., the international umbrella organisation representing national associations for directors and providers of long-term care services in Europe. It is the ambition to create the European Ageing Network (EAN) by mid-2018.
EAHSA and E.D.E. have been discussing the creation of EAN since early 2017. The aim was to merge both interest representatives and to create an efficient and effective voice of the ageing industry in Europe. In several joint working groups EAHSA and E.D.E.
have discussed the final concept. In practice, the seperate secretariats and the EU intelligence and communication functions already went up in one organisation in April 2017."
