The annual report for 2016 of the FAMHP is now available


This year, in the booklet “Our results in facts and figures”, you will find the key figures of the agency for 2016, namely significant figures presented in a new visual style. Only the results of the past year will be shown in the remaining charts and tables. We have also compiled the main accomplishments that FAMHP collaborators were keen to highlight for 2016 in our newspaper, “The FAMHP times 2016”.
