We are inviting iPAAC partners, collaborators, health care experts, researchers, government representatives, policy makers and patient advocates and other interested stakeholders to contribute to this online meeting. This meeting follows three earlier co-creational iPAAC WP5 events of Budapest (May 2019) and Helsinki (December 2019) and online meeting (April 2020).
