EHMA`s aim is to improve the quality and build the capacity of health management across the European region. As EHMA`s statutes state, the Association seeks to "improve health management and health policies through the development and exchange of both ideas and practices among academics, researchers, managers, clinicians, policy makers and consumers throughout Europe."

EHMA structures its vision under multiannual, strategic areas which underpin each year`s workplan: Quality and Inclusion in health and healthcare; Innovation in health management; and Sustainable Health Systems; underpinned in all three areas by Leadership and Knowledge Transfer.

1. Quality and Inclusion: We aim to support high quality healthcare for all service users, led by outstanding managers, supported by appropriate policy frameworks and underpinned by the best available research.

2. Innovation: We want to see innovative health management and research that thinks radically about service provision and public health for the good of all citizens.

3. Sustainable health systems: We want to see health systems equipped to respond to current and future challenges in a way that safeguards health for all.

> Leadership: Leadership is key to EHMA`s work. In the health domain leadership is not only essential in driving change but to maintaining high standards in service delivery. Leadership also increases health management capacity through setting direction and strategy.

> Knowledge Transfer: developing innovative approaches to knowledge transfer is a critical issue in European healthcare, both between different countries or regions, and between practice, policy and research communities. Through knowledge transfer EHMA aims to support the dialogue between researchers and policy makers, and policy makers and health managers. The ultimate goal is to support development of both practice and policy agendas through dialogue.

We are widely recognised to be Europe`s BC advocacy organisation, with 17 years experience advocating for evidence-based best practice breast services.

- increasing PREVENTION, by promoting and educating all European women about healthy lifestyle practices

ED`s general objectives are its Ten Goals, which are based on the aims enshrined in its Constitution. We seek: to promote the dissemination and exchange of factual, up-to-date information on breast cancer throughout Europe; to promote breast awareness; to emphasise the need for appropriate screening and early detection; to campaign for the provision of optimum treatment; to ensure provision of quality supportive care throughout and after treatment; to advocate appropriate training for health professionals; to acknowledge good practice and promote its development; to demand regular quality assessment of medical equipment; to ensure that all women understand fully any proposed treatment options, including entry into clinical trials and their right to a second opinion; to promote the advancement of breast cancer research.

VALUES: ED provides women in member countries with scientifically proven info, evidence-based education and tools, a sense of cross-border solidarity and the collective power necessary to bring about change while reducing inequalities betw countries.

The above are communicated to stakeholders on ED websites, publications and at events.
