Abstract: The aim of the meeting was to provide an update on ongoing IMCI activities in the Region, to share experiences with the early implementation of IMCI, and to discuss future strategies and activities to ensure the sustainable development of IMCI in the Region. Nine countries in the European Region were now in the early implementation phase of IMCI and one, Kazakhstan, was approaching the expansion phase. There had been significant progress in implementing the first IMCI component on health worker training and case management improvement. Experience had shown that IMCI could be successfully integrated into ongoing child health interventions and health sector reforms. The meeting recommended that future work focus on: improved exchange of information; regular cooperation between the major partners as a means of further developing the second IMCI component on health systems; and strengthening the third IMCI component on family and community participation by promoting WHO/UNICEF guidelines on community practices, investing in the strategic role of district nurses and community health visitors, and promoting closer partnerships between the voluntary sector and ministries of health
