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.

"The members of the ENWHP work together towards the vision `healthy employees in healthy organisations`. They are committed to the mission of developing and promoting good workplace health practice, which in turn contributes to a high level of health protection and sustainable economic and social development in Europe"(Article 1). This vision is part of a broader vision at European policy level:

The EU Lisbon Agenda identifies the goal for this decade to develop the EU region `to become the most competitive and dynamic knowledge-based economy in the world capable of sustainable economic growth with more and better jobs and greater social cohesion`. In this context workplace health promotion is part of the concept of quality in work with impacts on productivity, employment and social cohesion.

With its vision and mission, ENWHP contributes especially to the reduction of health inequalities, to the development of a European health information system and to improving important health determinants with impacts on all relevant settings in working and non-working life.

Health Action International (HAI) Europe is a non-profit, independent, European network of consumer groups, public interest NGOs, healthcare providers, academics and individuals. HAI`s mission and goals follow the overarching global work programme set every five years. HAI Europe devises plans and strategies to inform medicines` policy in Europe and acts as a regional coordinating centre.

HAI`s mission is:
- To increase access to Essential Medicines: Ensuring that medicines meeting priority healthcare needs are available, accessible and affordable to all;

- To improve the Rational Use of Medicines: Ensuring that all licensed medicines meet real medical needs, have therapeutic advantages, are acceptably safe, offer value for money and are appropriately prescribed, in tailored doses, for an adequate time at the lowest cost to citizens and their community;

- To promote the participation of citizens in medicines policy: Encouraging and supporting the participation of patients and consumers in decisions that will affect their health and well-being, whilst advocating for the highest levels of transparency, independence and accountability in all aspects of medicines policy.

HAI Europe monitors and encourages EU policy-making around these three thematic priorities. HAI Europe works by implementing innovative methodologies that generate key data, develop and publish key publications and commentary as well as promote knowledge exchange on the impact of medicines policy on public health. The paucity of coherent medicines policies in Europe has driven HAI`s unique focus over the last 30 years and continues to be at the centre of HAI`s research, advocacy, capacity building and expertise, and as a result, has established HAI`s reputation as an authority on pharmaceutical policy issues.

Vision: Poverty and social injustice represent the greatest barriers to sustainable health and development and HAI works for a just and equitable society where people can participate in decisions affecting their health and well being, including the allocation of resources.
