The WG, despite the pandemic challenges, managed to remain a constructive forum of discussion for academic and other policy stakeholders. Through experience exchange on how we can meet the daily necessities, we shared good practices on public health policies and determined urgent local needs for policy guidance within different countries. All the announced participants were present at the conference, with only one exception due to a medical condition. As a result, the quality of the presentations was good and according to the scientific criteria. Unfortunately, not all accepted authors in the selection process succeeded to participate in the conference due to the pandemic restrictions. According to the discussion's results, the WG decided to continue the work in a multi-disciplinary format concentrating on public policy/evidence-based, strategic management issues and public health policy interventions.
