WHO/Europe’s human resources for health programme will convene its biennial meeting of government chief nursing officers, WHO collaborating centres and the European Forum of National Nursing and Midwifery Associations on 3–4 October 2018 in Athens, Greece.
The conference will give experts in nursing and midwifery a platform to demonstrate the contribution that nurses and midwives make to achieving Health 2020 goals and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in areas such as:
- investing in health through a life-course approach and empowering people;
- tackling Europe’s major health challenges: noncommunicable and communicable diseases;
- strengthening people-centred health systems, public health capacities, and emergency preparedness, surveillance and response; and
- creating resilient communities and supportive environments.
