The Fund for Bilateral Cooperation was designed to develop bilateral  
relations with the EEA countries. By the end of 2016, another 15 projects  
of the accompanying activities of bilateral cooperation had been supported  
with a total amount of nearly EUR 170,000.


Bilateral cooperation

“We as a Donor Programme Partner for CZ-11 have enjoyed our cooperation 
with the Programme Operator – the Ministry of Finance and Programme 
Partner – the Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic.  The main areas of 
the programme, namely, “Psychiatric Care” and “Health Care for Children” 
reflect the main priorities of the Czech health authorities and are in line 
with the priorities we have in Norway. All three pre-defined projects have 
been successful and cooperation is appreciated by Norwegian partners. 
Over the years we have observed an increased interest in mental health 
promotion and disease prevention contributing to achievement of the main 
programme goals – improvement of public health and reduction in health 
inequalities. During several study visits we witnessed genuine enthusiasm 
and substantial effort made by the Czech professionals.

We hope that the good work initiated during the current grants period will 
be continued and cooperation between our countries will grow stronger over 
the years”.
