Abstract: The Fourth Annual Meeting of the European Forum of National Nursing and Midwifery Associations and WHO was attended by representatives of associations from 28 Member States of the WHO European Region, as well as a number of observers from nongovernmental organizations. At a business meeting, participants elected four members of the Steering Committee and a vice-chairperson of the Forum. At the main meeting, the task forces on women and children, the elderly, chronic diseases and smoking cessation made progress reports, and the first evaluation of the work of the Forum was presented. In addition, a presentation was made on the Second WHO Ministerial Conference on Nursing and Midwifery in Europe (to be held in Munich, 15617 June 2000), and the purpose and objectives of the Conference were explained. During the technical discussion, the participants reviewed the role of nurses and midwives in achieving equity in health and ensuring access to health care in European Member States. For the first time at a Forum meeting, an open-space session was held to discuss and make recommendations on various aspects of equity. Afterwards, the Forum agreed on and adopted a statement on the contribution of nursing and midwifery to equity in health care
