Air quality guidelines for Europe by World Health Organization( Book )

17 editions published between 1987 and 2000 in English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim of these guidelines is to provide a basis for protecting public health from adverse effects of air pollutants and to eliminate or reduce exposure to those pollutants that are know or likely to be hazardous to human health or wellbeing. The guidelines provide background information and guidance to (inter)national and local authorities in making risk assessment and risk management decisions. In establishing pollutant levels below which exposure - for life or for a given period of time - does not constitute a significant public health risk, the guidelines provide a basis for setting standards or limit values for air pollutants.; it is a policy to decide which specific groups at risk should be protected by the standards and what degree of risk is considered to be acceptable. These decisions are influenced by differences in risk perception among the general population and the various stakeholders in the process, but also by differences in social situations in different countries, and by the way the risks a
The Added value of geographical information systems in public and environmental health by Marion J. C. de Lepper( Book )

6 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and German and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is one of the first to introduce the potential of the new and rapidly developing GIS technology in the field of public and environmental health. Contributions include papers originally presented in December 1990 at a meeting at the National Institute of Public Health and Environmental Protection in Bilthoven, the Netherlands, convened by the World Health Organization Regional Office for Europe to discuss the development of a Health and Environment Geographical Information System for the European Region. The contributors form a wide-ranging group of international experts and include leading researchers in the field of health and environment, prominent GIS experts and representatives of government agencies. This book brings together a balanced sample of written work that covers important aspects of the principles involved in GIS as well as demonstrating the opportunities which the use of GIS can offer to research and planning in the fields of public and environmental health. In addition, contributions focus on the demand and supply of spatial information in public and environmental health. As an illustration of the work being undertaken, some examples of current applications are provided, followed by a discussion on the possibilities of spatial analysis for research and planning in the fields. This book also addresses issues related to the implementation of GIS at both national and international levels. The volume not only provides a very good introduction to the state-of-the-art and developments in the application of GIS in public and environmental health; it can also be regarded as a seedbed for future research efforts. For students and teachers of GIS as well as for researchers, planners, policymakers and other professionals who wish to learn more about GIS and are concerned with the application, implementation and use of GIS in public and environmental health

Labour market changes and job insecurity : a challenge for social welfare and health promotion by John Griffiths( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work is the result of a symposium focusing on the anxieties that arise from changes in the world of work in Europe. Experts in economics, epidemiology, health promotion, social policy, medicine and the behavioural and social sciences, labour market analysts and public health specialists shared information and perspectives on the health impact of employment insecurity. The presentations and subsequent discussions emphasized the need for a strong link between research and government policies.

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Investing in children's health is essential to ensure human and economic development. Healthy children have the best chances for healthy, productive lives. At the Fourth Ministerial Conference on Environment and Health in 2004, the countries in the WHO European Region committed themselves to building a healthy future for the Region's children by adopting the Children's Environment and Health Action Plan for Europe. It provides a framework for action by the 52 diverse countries in the Region. This book was written to provide the guidance and tools that countries need to carry out the Action Pla
Transport, environment, and health by Carlos Dora( Book )

8 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The continuing expansion of motorized transport in Europe today raises crucial questions about the efficiency and the environmental, health and social implications of land-use and transport policies. The challenge is to promote healthy and sustainable transport alternatives to prevent the negative effects of transport systems on human health. This book summarizes the key facts on which countries based their decision. Developed from a document prepared for the London Conference, it summarizes the latest scientific evidence on the impact of transport-generated air pollution, noise and accidents on behaviour and physical and mental health. The book also highlights the considerable potential health benefits from non-motorized forms of transport, such as cycling and walking

Health systems confront poverty by Erio Ziglio( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Health care systems across the WHO European Region have done and are doing much to tackle the complex and daunting problem of poverty and health. This book describes 12 initiatives already undertaken in 10 WHO Member States. It documents WHO's preliminary findings on how health care systems can help to alleviate poverty and reaches three main conclusions: health care systems can indeed take effective action to improve the health of the poor; sometimes health care systems can actually represent an additional barrier for the poor and there is an urgent need for more knowledge, training and capacity-building in this area. It is hoped that the information presented here will contribute to the efforts to improve health and increase quality by tackling poverty and its effects on health across the length and breadth of Europe

Health risks of ozone from long-range transboundary air pollution by Markus Amann( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ozone is a highly oxidative compound formed in the lower atmosphere (from gases originating to a large extent from anthropogenic sources) by photochemistry driven by solar radiation. Owing to its highly reactive chemical properties, ozone is harmful to vegetation, materials and human health. In the troposphere, ozone is also an efficient greenhouse gas. This report summarizes the results of a multidisciplinary analysis to assess the effects of ozone on health. The analysis indicates that ozone pollution affects the health of most of the populations of the WHO European Region, leading to a wide

European report on child injury prevention by D Sethi( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Injuries are a leading cause of death and disability in children. This report presents evidence on how they can be prevented, and calls for greater commitment and action from policy-makers and practitioners to decrease the burden of injuries. Children are particularly vulnerable to injuries, and need special consideration to safeguard their right to health and to a safe environment, free from injury. The evidence base for prevention programmes is presented in this report. Health systems and in particular child health programmes throughout the European Region should prioritize child injury prevention and control
Home care in Europe : the solid facts by World Health Organization( Book )

12 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Demographic, epidemiological, social and cultural trends in European countries are changing the traditional patterns of care. The next decades will see rising numbers of care-dependent older people and noncommunicable diseases as the leading cause of chronic illness and disability. Further, urbanization and the break-up of the traditional large family group will lead to gaps in the care of older or disabled family members. These changes in needs and social structure require a different approach to policy and services in the health and social sectors; a disease-oriented approach alone is no lon
