Dr. Miriam Dalmas. I am a medical professional specialising in Public Health Medicine.
Since 2009, I have been engaged as a medical consultant in Public Health Medicine. My main role is in the coordination of policy development and in providing general support to the Chief Medical Officer (CMO).
I occupied the post of Director for Policy Development, EU and International Affairs for the Ministry for Health from 2007-2011.
For the past six years my work has focussed on the national cancer policy and I was the main author of the National Cancer Plan 2011-2015.
I have also led the creation of the National Health Systems Strategy 2014-2020 that was launched in 2014.
Presently, I am representing Malta as an associate partner in the Joint Action on Comprehensive Cancer Control (JA CANCON) and on the Board of Member States on the European Reference Networks.
Recently, I have been tasked with the coordination of a new National Cancer Plan 2016-2020.
In 2005, I graduated as a Master in Business Administration from the University of Malta. Since 2010, I am a doctoral candidate with the Faculty of Economics, Management and Accounting at the University of Malta in the field of Management and specifically on the subject of Organisational Learning.
