AbstractThe promotion of health, prevention of disease and the care of those who are ill absorbs a large proportion of a country's budget. Efforts to contain these costs while at the same time offer the best possible quality of health care have been driven by the ever advancing knowledge of the determinants of health and of the potential of technology to offer cure or palliation for disease. HEALTH21, the new policy for health for all for the European Region, re-affirms WHO's belief in the key contribution which nurses and midwives can make towards improving the health of the people. However, across the Region, there are major differences in the quality of their education. This Strategy, prepared by a multidisciplinary Expert Group and revised following an extensive consultation process, presents the fundamental principles which must guide the initial education of nurses and midwives throughout the Region, so that they will be competent and "fit for purpose" both now and in the years to come. It lays the essential foundation for continuing professional development
