Abstract: The South-East Europe Health Network was established in Sofia in April 2001 as part of the Stability Pact for South Eastern Europe Social Cohesion Initiative. At the Fourth Meeting of the SEE Health Network, May 2002, support was given to the implementation of the project "Strengthening Food Safety and Nutrition Services in SEE" within the framework of the Stability Pact Initiative. Subsequently, at the Third Workshop on the Development of Food and Nutrition Action Plans in Countries of South-East Europe, September 2002, the issues of nutrition and cardiovascular diseases in the SEE region were recognized to be common and of highest importance for all SEE countries. A project proposal was drafted entitled "Developing and Strengthening Food and Nutrition Strategies to Prevent Cardiovascular Diseases in South-East Europe". The First Technical Workshop of the SEE Nutrition Project was held in Belgrade, November 2002 where the above proposal was finalized and participants were also urged to join the DAFNE (Data Food Networking) Project whereupon an application to European Commission programmes was drafted, agreed and submitted for funding. The Second Technical Workshop of the SEE Nutrition Project reviewed the progress made so far regarding the DAFNE proposal to the EU and provided the opportunity to promote the efforts for initiating the project and implementation in these countries
