Vilnius in Lithuania was the city that hosted the 14th EFA Conference. The first day was dedicated to the AGM and the second day was a half a day conference. During the AGM many important issues were discussed. The AGM decided on a new powerful vision, mission and objectives that will be published shortly. At the end of the AGM the members through a networking process shared best practices of their own member associations. During this year’s elections the vice president and one board member were elected. EFA welcomes its new Vice President Christine Rolland from French association “Association Asthme et Allergies” and welcomes back Lina Buzermaniene from Lithuanian Council of Asthma Clubs. Also EFA would like to thank Ondrej Rybnicek from Czech Initiative for Asthma, ex Vice President for his dedication and work in the EFA board . This year’s conference dealt with issues on reimbursement and health technology assessment (HTA). We had the opportunity to hear about reimbursement policies in different European countries as well as what HTA is and how patient organizations can contribute. I would like to thank all speakers for sharing their knowledge with us and enlightening us with important information. I would also like to thank on behalf of EFA Lina Buzermaniene and the Lithuanian council of Asthma Clubs and Egle Kvederaite from the Association of Asthma Patient Clubs for a superb organization of the 14th EFA Conference. Marianella Salapatas, EFA President
