Abstract: Country Highlights on Health provide an overview of the health and health-related situation in a given country, and compare its position with those of other countries in the WHO European Region. They are based on information provided by Member States and on internationally available health statistics. In 1999/2001 the Regional Office will produce Highlights on Health for each of the ten countries of central and eastern Europe that are candidates for accession to the European Union (EU), together with a supplementary overview of the health status and health situation in these countries as a whole. The meeting focused on reviewing progress and planning the process for completing the outstanding Highlights, including the process of consultation with counterparts in the respective countries. The meeting also provided the candidate countries with information on public health programmes in the EU (especially that on health monitoring) and changes to the organizational structure at the Regional Office, and afforded an opportunity to raise issues relating to the problems of maintaining routine health service information in a period of major health sector reform
