The European Forum of National Nursing and Midwifery Associations (EFNNMA) is the voice of nursing and midwifery within WHO European Region.Working in partnership and strategically with WHO and other key stakeholders we aim to influence health policy, improve the quality of health services and the health of people across the 53 Member States of the Region. We are passionate advocates of the central and unique contribution that Nurses and Midwives make to individual and population health and well-being across Europe and are committed to ensuring both professions are supported to deliver excellence in their practice. As the nature of care changes we believe that strengthening and developing the nursing and midwifery workforce through the provision of lifelong learning and research delivers excellence in public health and people-centered healthcare.
Dear member associations, please note that the next EFNNMA meeting is scheduled for April 8-9, 2015 and will be held jointly with WHO meeting for Chief Governmental Officers in Riga, Latvia.
All relevant information regarding the meeting, including the technical details and agenda will be available on the web site later. We hope that you will mark the dates in April in your calendar to be able to participate and give an input to EFNNMA work and WHO policies in nursing and midwifery prior to the historical event when nursing and midwifery will be on the official agenda of 65 Regional Committee.
