Abstract: Most countries in the WHO European Region are reviewing their health systems and their approaches to financing, organizing and delivering health services. While the last decade generated much debate, theoretical analysis urgently needs to be complemented by practical tools and processes to implement reform. The meeting reviewed the Regional Office's achievements in health systems development over the last five years and planned new directions and ways of working. It convened an Advisory Group to guide the formulation of a vision and an action plan. It also established an Expert Panel that will implement the programme in countries, and trained its members in effective consultancy. The meeting finalized the programme's business plan and agreed a number of activities, focusing on implementation of the country Biennial Collaborative Agreements. It advocated a more strategic approach to health systems development, taking the lead from Member States but working within the framework of WHO values and policies
