Mental health : facing the challenges, building solutions : report from the WHO European Ministerial Conference by World Health Organization( )

12 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 914 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Member States in the WHO European Region met at the WHO European Ministerial Conference on Mental Health in Helsinki in January 2005 to tackle one of the major threats to the well-being of Europeans: the epidemic of psychosocial distress and mental ill health. These countries took mental health from the shadow of stigma and discrimination and brought it to the centre of the public health policy arena. By adopting the Mental Health Declaration and Action Plan for Europe, they set the course for mental health policy for the next 5-10 years. Member States now face the challenge of acting on the principles of the Declaration and accomplishing the goals in the Action Plan's 12 areas of work. This book contributes to the achievement of this task by describing the current situation in the Region, presenting the texts of the Declaration and Action Plan, offering brief discussions of the areas of work (with examples of initiatives already underway in each) and describing WHO's plans to assist Member States in improving mental health in the European Region.[Ed.]
Social determinants of health by Richard G Wilkinson( )

Health systems confront poverty by Erio Ziglio( )

6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 879 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Health systems 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: Croatia, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Kyrgyzstan, Poland, the Republic of Moldova, the Russian Federation and the United Kingdom. It documents WHO's preliminary findings on how health systems can help to alleviate poverty, and reaches three main conclusions: that these systems can take effective action to improve the health of the poor, that they can sometimes represent an additional barrier for the poor and that more knowledge, training and capacity building in this area are urgently needed. It is hoped that the information presented here will contribute to WHO's efforts to help countries across the length and breadth of Europe improve health and increase equity by tackling poverty and its effects on health.

A balanced assessment, based on currently available scientific knowledge, of the effects that climate change may have on the environment in Europe and the health of its populations. Written in non-technical language, the book responds to growing public and political concern about the consequences of such widely publicized phenomena as global warming and stratospheric ozone depletion. The book also responds to evidence that recent warming trends in Europe have already affected health. The book opens with a brief explanation of the causes of climate change and stratospheric ozone depletion, foll
The Added value of geographical information systems in public and environmental health by Marion J. C. de Lepper( )

5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 506 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
Health risks of ozone from long-range transboundary air pollution by Markus Amann( )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 465 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( )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 433 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. Every year, nearly 42 000 children and teenagers aged 0-19 years die from unintentional injuries in the European Region, where injuries are the leading cause of death in children aged 5-19; 5 out of 6 of these deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries. Irrespective of country income, the burden falls disproportionately on children from the most disadvantaged groups. The leading mechanisms of unintentional injury death in children are road traffic crashes, drowning, poisoning, thermal injuries and falls. Whatever the mechanism, the main causes of injury and their underlying socioeconomic and environmental determinants are similar. 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. [Ed.]
Home care in Europe : the solid facts by World Health Organization( )

12 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 425 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
Heat-health action plans : guidance( )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Climate change is leading to variations in weather patterns and an apparent increase in extreme weather events, including heat-waves. Recent heat-waves in the WHO European Region have led to a rise in related mortality but the adverse health effects of hot weather and heat-waves are largely preventable. Prevention requires a portfolio of actions at different levels, including meteorological early warning systems, timely public and medical advice, improvements to housing and urban planning and ensuring that health care and social systems are ready to act. These actions can be integrated into a defined heat-health action plan. This guidance results from the EuroHEAT project on improving public health responses to extreme weather/heat-waves, co-funded by WHO and the European Commission. It explains the importance of the development of heat-health action plans, their characteristics and core elements, with examples from several European countries that have begun their implementation and evaluation. [Ed.]
Health and environment in Europe : progress assessment( )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes the progress made by the WHO European Member States in improving their health and the environment situation over the last 20 years. The assessment focuses on the aspects of health related to clean water and air, to environments supporting safe mobility and physical activity, chemical safety, noise and safety at work. These are the environment and health issues arising from the four regional priority goals of the Children's Environment and Health Action Plan for Europe (CEHAPE), agreed at the Fourth Ministerial Conference on Environment and Health in 2004. The information collected by the European Environment and Health Information System forms the basis for the analysis. The report also presents the public governance and healthy public policy aspects of national policies on environment and health. The implementation of the CEHAPE in countries, its impact and challenges related to it are summarized using the information collected through the web-based survey on CEHAPE conducted in November 2009
Framework for alcohol policy in the WHO European Region( )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The European Region is the WHO region with the highest alcohol intake in the world. Both per capita consumption and the disease burden from alcohol are twice the world average. Alcohol is the third-largest risk factor for death and disability in the Region and the largest risk factor among young people. The framework for alcohol policy in the Region, given in this booklet, is a timely response to the situation. It launches a new phase of alcohol policy, initiated and led by the WHO Regional Office for Europe. The framework aims to encourage and facilitate the development and implementation of global, regional, national and community policies and action to prevent or reduce the harm caused by alcohol. It creates an overarching frame for existing international instruments and documents, and addresses recent developments, new challenges and needs for further research. [Ed.]
