    [Rapport européen sur la prévention des traumatismes chez l’enfant]
    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.

    [Inégalités en matière de santé des jeunes: HBSC rapport international de l'enquête 2005/2006]
    Health policy for children and adolescents, no. 5.
    This international report is the fourth from the Health Behaviour in School-aged Children (HBSC) study, a WHO collaborative cross-national study, and the most comprehensive. It presents the key findings on patterns of health among young people aged 11, 13 and 15 years in 41 countries and regions across the WHO European Region and North America in 2005/2006. Its theme is health inequalities: quantifying the gender, age, geographic and socioeconomic dimensions of health differentials. Its aim is to highlight where these inequalities exist, to inform and influence policy and practice and to help improve health for all young people.
    The report clearly shows that, while the health and well-being of many young people give cause for celebration, sizeable minorities are experiencing real and worrying problems related to overweight and obesity, self-esteem, life satisfaction, substance misuse and bullying. The report provides reliable data that health systems in Member States can use to support and encourage sectors such as education, social inclusion and housing, to achieve their primary goals and, in so doing, benefit young people's health. Policy-makers and professionals in the participating countries should listen closely to the voices of their young people and ensure that these drive their efforts to put in place the circumstances - social, economic, health and educational - within which young people can thrive and prosper.
