    [Excerpt from publisher] In 2002, the ILO classified the Nursing Personnel Convention (C 149) as an up-to-date instrument, reaffirming its relevance in today's socio-economic realities. This Convention is nearly 30 years old, yet sadly not much progress has been made in many countries towards improving working conditions in nursing. The same concerns that prompted international attention on working conditions in health services in the 1970's unfortunately still prevail today. The health care profession is not attracting enough recruits in both developed and developing countries to keep up with demand, and in addition, it is also losing large numbers of trained personnel to areas outside the sector.
