Strategic Action Plan for the Health of Women in Europe





This Action Plan was produced as part of Health21 and was endorsed by Member States at a meeting in 2001.

Its aims are:

  • to highlight the need for an explicit focus on the health of women;
  • to provide an overview of past and current policy developments with implications for the health of women;
  • to identify the key social and economic prerequisites that form the foundation for good health in women;
  • to summarize the important themes that need to be taken into account in promoting the health of women; and
  • to identify appropriate action to be taken and where responsibility for this action lies.
