    [L'alcool dans l’Union européenne. Consommation, nocivité et stratégies adoptées]
    This new report uses information gathered in 2011 to update key indicators on alcohol consumption, health outcomes and action to reduce harm across the European Union (EU). It gives an overview of the latest research on effective alcohol policies, and includes data from the EU, Norway and Switzerland on alcohol consumption, harm and policy approaches. The data were collected from a 2011 survey, carried out as part of a project of the European Commission and the WHO Regional Office for Europe. The report updates the evidence base for some important areas of alcohol policy, and provides policy-makers and other stakeholders in reducing the harm done to health and society by excessive drinking with useful information to guide future action.
    Alcohol is one of the world’s top three priority areas in public health. Even though only half the global population drinks alcohol, it is the world’s third leading cause of ill health and premature death, after low birth weight and unsafe sex. In Europe, alcohol is the third leading risk factor for disease and death after tobacco and high blood pressure.

    [Statistiques européennes de maladies cardiovasculaires 2012]
    This is the fourth edition of European Cardiovascular Disease Statistics. This fourth edition is published jointly by the European Heart Network, the European Society of Cardiology and the British Heart Foundation Health Promotion Research Group, Department of Public Health, University of Oxford. It is part of the European Heart Health Strategy II (EuroHeart II) project and benefits from co-funding from the European Union in the framework of the health programme. CVD remains the main cause of death in Europe with very significant differences in mortality rates between countries.
    The differences are greatest between Northern, Southern and Western European countries and Central and Eastern European Countries. There are also differences between Western and Southern European countries with Southern European countries still having lower death rates from CVD than Western European countries. However, policy makers need to consider the differences and take a close look at risk factor prevalence and trends. Differences between Southern and Western European countries may persist but they are narrowing. This may be good news for Western Europe not necessarily for Southern Europe.
    The data presented in the fourth edition of European Cardiovascular Disease Statistics show that our efforts to reduce mortality from cardiovascular diseases have been successful. Most noticeably, following steep increases in CVD mortality in some Central and Eastern European countries, these countries are now since the mid-2000 experiencing a decrease. However, the cost to the European Union economies of cardiovascular diseases (CVD) is not decreasing.
    A read through the chapters of the European Cardiovascular Disease Statistics confirms that Europe suffers badly from lack of data and, particularly, lack of comparable data. This is true for prevalence and incidence rates, rates of surgical procedures as well as for diets. The European Union has an important task in developing standard methods for collecting information or agreed procedures for calibration of locally appropriate methods and questionnaires, to ensure effective service planning and quality of care for patients across the European Union.

    [Rapport mondial de l'OMS: mortalité imputable au tabac]
    This report provides information by country on the proportion of adult (age 30 years and above) deaths attributable to tobacco by major communicable and non-communicable causes by age and sex. It builds and is consistent with the global estimate provided in WHO’s 2009 report entitled Global health risks: mortality and burden of disease attributable to selected major risks.

    [Bien démarrer une vie saine: Niveler le gradient de santé chez les enfants, les jeunes et les familles dans l'Union européenne - Ce qui fonctionne]
    In all EU countries there is a systematic correlation between level of health and social status – a step-wise decrease in health that comes with decreasing social position. This correlation exists amongst children and young people as well as amongst adults. These social gradients in health are harmful and unjust, particularly when it comes to children and young people, since adversity during the early years negatively impacts on health across the life-course.
    This book aims to improve knowledge on what can be done to level-up gradients in health. It is based on research undertaken during GRADIENT, a project funded under the EU Seventh Framework Programme.
    On the basis of concrete examples and national comparisons, it identifies measures that can be taken to level socio-economic gradients in health. It looks at:
    Political and welfare-state factors
    How universal policies on social protection, education and health systems can contribute to reducing gradients in health
    Why social community capital matters
    The importance of monitoring the distributional effects of all policies
    The Gradient Evaluation Framework
    The role of the EU in tackling social gradients in health
    The book provides final recommendations for policy makers and practitioners to ensure that all children and young people in the EU get the right start to a healthy life.

    La convention relative aux droits des personnes handicapées (CRDPH) est le premier instrument des droits de l’Homme du 21e siècle. Elle constitue une étape importante dans la politique tant nationale qu’internationale en faveur des personnes en situation de handicap.

    Avec l'entrée en vigueur de la loi du 28 juillet 2011, loi par laquelle le gouvernement luxembourgeois a approuvé la CRDPH ainsi que son protocole additionnel, ces deux accords sont finalement devenus juridiquement contraignants pour le Luxembourg. L'État luxembourgeois est désormais tenu de respecter les dispositions de la Convention et de les faire appliquer progressivement.

    Une mise en œuvre selon les règles de l’art de cette convention est susceptible d’accélérer considérablement le processus d’inclusion des personnes handicapées dans tous les domaines de la vie. À l’instar des modalités de négociation de la convention et dans l’esprit de cette dernière, le ministère de la Famille et de l’Intégration a désiré intensifier la participation de la société civile au processus de prise de décision. Au bout de plusieurs réunions de travail, auxquelles ont participé en moyenne 100 personnes, les efforts déployés dans onze différents groupes de travail ont mené à une œuvre commune de la société civile et des représentants du gouvernement luxembourgeois: le plan d’action de mise en œuvre de la convention relative aux droits des personnes handicapées.
