|Abstract:||By formalizing their relationship with WHO, nurses and midwives can further the public health agenda in Europe and help to ensure that health services are equitable, cost effective, focused on the patient and community, and oriented to outcome. The aim of the European Forum of Nursing and Midwifery Associations and WHO : Founding Meeting was to gain consensus on establishing the Forum as a means to increase the visibility of nursing and midwifery and to allow the professions direct access, through a critical link with WHO, to both international policy and strategy development. Representatives of 26 national nursing associations and WHO signed a declaration of intent, committing themselves to the aims of the Forum and the election of a steering committee to draw up operating principles (including details of financial support), for consideration at the next plenary meeting of the Forum in autumn 1997|
