Abstract: Regions are acquiring an increasingly important role in Europe. The regional level is an ideal setting for health policy development, as regions have proximity to population needs, knowledge of local health problems and appropriate capacity for allocating resources for implementation. In many countries devolution processes have taken place and regions have considerable amount of positive responsibilities in health and health care. The WHO Regions for Health Network (RHN), in acknowledging that increased involvement of the political level is necessary for its new strategic directions for health policy development, organized this first ever meeting for ministers at the regional level at the WHO Regional Office for Europe. High-level political participants engaged in an active round table discussion with WHO and with each other on important issues related to working together at the regional level. Ministerial representatives agreed to and signed a document to adopt basic principles related to priority health-related topics for the Regions for Health Network
