Abstract: This is a report of a Workshop organised by the WHO Regional Office for Europe, with the objectives of building the evidence base for Human Resources for Health (HRH) in Europe by identifying the key policy questions that policy makers face in HRH, agreeing upon an agenda for development of options, and undertaking further validation of the WHO HQ/HRH framework. The workshop allowed further exploration of the framework and validation for the European region; and, with the participation of policy makers, enabled the identification of the key HRH issues/policy questions for the region, and identification of initial priorities for building capacity and action. Three underlying principles and six priority areas for action were identified and agreed. The three principles were that approaches to HRH should be comprehensive, inclusive, and not risk averse. The six priority areas for action were: testing/ applying the WHO HRH framework; improving planning; monitoring migration; assessing the impact of regulation; supporting HRH networking and "filling" knowledge gaps; and HRH capacity building
