Abstract: The Expert Network on Family Practice Development Strategies was established to give its participants, who are drawn from countries that are reorganizing their primary health care services, the opportunity to share their experience and learn from each other. The Fifth Meeting of the Expert Network considered collaboration between primary and secondary health care professionals in the light of target 15 of the Health21 strategy and recent strategy development both internationally and nationally. Other issues were the remuneration of general practitioners/family medicine (GP/FM) teams according to different types of contract and the benefits and disadvantages of GP/FM status either as an employee, self-employed person or employer. The Meeting adopted 10 recommendations based on the discussions. Participants received in-depth knowledge about the education of general practitioners/family doctors and the primary health care system in Estonia through presentations and site visits
