EHMA`s aim is to improve the quality and build the capacity of health management across the European region. As EHMA`s statutes state: we seek 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 three areas: Quality and Equity in health and healthcare; Innovation in health management; and Sustainable Health Systems; underpinned in all three areas by Leadership.

> Quality and Equity: We want to see high quality healthcare and reduced health inequalities, led by outstanding managers, supported by appropriate policy frameworks and underpinned by the best available research.

> 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.

> 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.

Founded in 1966, ASPHER is the key independent organisation in Europe dedicated to strengthening the role of public health (PH) by improving the education and training (E&T) of PH professionals for practice and research. It represents the scientific and academic components of the PH workforce education and advanced training.
[ref.p.11 Track 1]

ASPHER members are collectively committed to PH capacity building. Whilst respecting the European diversity of national and regional contexts in which each school of PH operates, ASPHER promotes structured processes of sharing evidence-based PH, models of innovation and good practice, and mobilizing schools of PH to be pro-active in shaping the PH core competencies.
[ref.p.11 Track 2]

ASPHER`s strategic vision includes the promotion of the highest standards of E&T for practice increasingly involving cross-sectoral intervention and global as much as EU wide and national issues. A key role for advocacy and communication to promote and incorporate European values into the wider PH movement is also assumed by ASPHER.

Founded in 1989, EMSP is the umbrella organisation representing 38 national MS societies from 34 European countries. EMSP represents their interests at European level and works collectively with its members to achieve our goals of high quality equitable treatment and support for all people with Multiple Sclerosis (PwMS) throughout Europe.

EMSP vision is to move from high quality treatment and support for all PwMS in Europe to a world without MS.

EMSP`s mission is to ensure the development and the implementation of high quality standards of treatment and support for PwMS, their families and their carers in all EU member states, to allow them to lead their life independently and to recognise them as equal members of the society.

EMSP work priorities to achieve this mission are to:
- influence EU institutions and other decision-making bodies to improve the quality of life of PwMS;
- network with other European organisations which share of vision of truly patient centred approach;
- provide MS member organisations with information on relevant EU draft legislation and how we can influence it, and evidence - based projects that will contribute to their work;
- develop and promote recommendations for improved medical treatment and rehabilitation to be implemented in the EU member states and other countries;
- encourage coordinated research aiming to benefit of PwMS;
- initiate and implement cross-border projects to improve the living conditions of PwMS (e.g. in the field of therapies, employment, social security, infrastructure, etc.);
- act as information platform by exchanging knowledge and best practices relevant to the work of the national MS member organisations;
- enhance a general awareness on MS by informing and educating external audiences;
- and to support national MS Societies both recent and long-established in Europe.

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.
