At their Third Meeting, government chief nurses of the NIS discussed the current state of nursing and midwifery in their countries, their common problems and possible solutions, relevant WHO policies and guidelines, and the importance of developing a vision and national action plan for nursing. They sought to strengthen their links with other international networks, WHO and potential project partners (donors). Finally, the participants made a statement, summarizing key themes and goals formulated during the Meeting and making specific recommendations to countries and WHO, and committed themselves to pursue immediate steps in line with the statement
