    Méthodologie d'évaluation des capacités des systèmes de santé pour la gestion des crises: Renforcement de la préparation des systèmes de santé aux situations d'urgence: Deuxième partie. Formulaire d'évaluation]
    In preparing for health crises, health systems face the prospect of multiple hazards, limited resources for dealing with them and high expectations with regard to their performance. The WHO Regional Office for Europe is working with its Member States towards strengthening health-system capacity by providing technical assistance in developing and implementing crisis preparedness and management programmes. In 2008, with the aim of improving the preparedness of countries for public health emergencies, the European Commission Directorate-General for Health and Consumers and the Regional Office embarked on a joint project entitled, “Support to health security, preparedness planning and crises management in European Union (EU), EU accession and neighbouring (ENP) countries”. The objectives of this project included the development of a standardized toolkit for assessing health-system capacity for managing crises.
    This toolkit was developed and revised during the course of pilot assessments carried out in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Poland, the Republic of Moldova, Turkey and Ukraine between 2007 and 2010. It comprises two parts: (1) the present document (the assessment form) and (2) the user manual.

    BACKGROUND:
    To determine the seroprevalence of hepatitis B (HBV), hepatitis C (HCV) and HIV infections in problem drug users (PDU) in Luxembourg. To measure the validity of self-reported test results provided by study participants as well as obtained through the national drug-monitoring system (RELIS).
    METHODS:
    In a cross-sectional multisite study, data were collected by voluntary, anonymous and assisted questionnaires and serological detection of antibodies and antigens. Out of 1169 contacts, 397 participants were recruited within in and out-of-treatment settings (84.2% injecting drug users; IDU).
    RESULTS:
    The prevalence of antibodies to HIV was 8/272 (2.9%; 95% CI 0.9% to 4.9%), to HCV 245/343 (71.4%; 66.6% to 76.2%), and 67/310 (21.6%; 17.1% to 26.2%) to total HBV antibodies and surface antigen (for IDU 5/202, 218/268 and 59/239, respectively). Specificity of study self-reports was very high for HBV and perfect for HCV and HIV. Sensitivity was 0.224, 0.798 and 0.800, respectively. Kappa scores provided degrees of agreement between serological tests and study self-reports of 0.89 for HIV, 0.65 for HCV and 0.25 for HBV. In contrast to simultaneous cross-sectional self-reports, secondary self-reported data (RELIS) showed high agreement for HIV and HBV infections and provided a good proxy for estimation of HCV seroprevalence.
    CONCLUSION:
    HIV testing routines in PDU should be completed at least by HBV and HCV detection given the poor validity of cross-sectional self-reports on hepatitis infections. HIV and hepatitis prevalence estimations in PDU gain by relying on multisite/setting data collection. Research should further investigate the validity of HIV and hepatitis self-reports from routine drug-monitoring systems versus cross-sectional surveys.

    [Action de santé publique pour la prévention du suicide]
    The purpose of this document is to provide a resource to assist governments in developing and implementing strategies for the prevention of suicide as well as to help those that have already initiated the process of conceptualizing national suicide prevention strategies.
    It draws on the evidence base built in the 15 years since the publication of the UN guidelines to outline the processes involved in developing a national suicide prevention strategy. It also identifies the critical elements of a framework (see Figure 1 in the Annex) for taking public health action to prevent suicide.
    Suicide prevention is a collective responsibility, and must be spearheaded by governments and civil society throughout the world.

    Enquête paneuropéenne sur l’alcool et d’autres drogues en milieu scolaire (ESPAD).

    Le nouveau rapport ESPAD fait état d’une consommation de drogues stable chez les jeunes scolarisés et d’une réduction de la «consommation épisodique excessive d’alcool», mais pas de baisse dans le nombre de jeunes fumeurs de tabac.

    Il s’agit de la cinquième vague de collecte de données conduite par le projet ESPAD, les enquêtes multinationales étant menées tous les quatre ans depuis 1995 (1). Plus de 100 000 élèves ont participé à la dernière enquête. Sur l’ensemble des pays participants, 23 étaient des États membres de l’UE.

    [Né trop tôt: le rapport d'action mondial sur les naissances prématurées]
    Born too soon: the global action report on preterm birth provides the first-ever national, regional and global estimates of preterm birth. The report shows the extent to which preterm birth is on the rise in most countries, and is now the second leading cause of death globally for children under five, after pneumonia.
    Addressing preterm birth is now an urgent priority for reaching Millennium Development Goal 4, calling for the reduction of child deaths by two-thirds by 2015. This report shows that rapid change is possible and identifies priority actions for everyone.
    This inspiring report is a joint effort of almost 50 international, regional and national organizations, led by the March of Dimes, The Partnership for Maternal, Newborn & Child Health, Save the Children and the World Health Organization in support of the Every Woman Every Child effort, led by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
    Born too soon proposes actions for policy, programs and research by all partners – from governments to NGOs to the business community -- that if acted upon, will substantially reduce the toll of preterm birth, especially in high-burden countries.
    The report contains a foreword by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and is accompanied by more than 30 new and expanded commitments to prevention and care of preterm birth, joining more than 200 existing commitments on the Every Woman Every Child web site.

    [Évaluation de la mise en œuvre de la Stratégie antidrogue de l'UE 2005-2012 et plans d'action connexes]

    Publication disponible en version électronique sur le site de l'éditeur RAND

    Illicit drug use continues to be an important public health and safety concern in Europe. Production, trafficking and dealing in illicit drugs constitute important criminal justice challenges in themselves, and are associated with other criminal activities. The 2005-2012 EU Drugs Strategy (as with previous strategies) was developed to complement and add value to national strategies and approaches while respecting the principles of subsidiarity and proportionality set out in the EU Treaties. The main rationale for its development was that while drugs problems vary across Member States, and are experienced at the local and national level, they are "a global issue that needs to be addressed in a transnational context". RAND Europe undertook an independent evaluation of the current Strategy and its Action Plans, addressing four research objectives:

    • To assess barriers and facilitators to the implementation of objectives and priorities at EU and Member State level
    • To assess the relevance and influence of the Strategy with respect to national drugs policy and legislation
    • To assess possible impact on the drugs situation in the EU
    • To identify key aspects and recommendations for future EU Drugs Strategies

    [la démence: une priorité de santé publique]
    The report “Dementia: a public health priority” has been jointly developed by WHO and Alzheimer's Disease International. The purpose of this report is to raise awareness of dementia as a public health priority, to articulate a public health approach and to advocate for action at international and national levels.
    Dementia is a syndrome that affects memory, thinking, behaviour and ability to perform everyday activities. The number of people living with dementia worldwide is currently estimated at 35.6 million. This number will double by 2030 and more than triple by 2050. Dementia is overwhelming not only for the people who have it, but also for their caregivers and families. There is lack of awareness and understanding of dementia in most countries, resulting in stigmatization, barriers to diagnosis and care, and impacting caregivers, families and societies physically, psychologically and economically.
    The report is expected to facilitate governments, policy-makers, and other stakeholders to address the impact of dementia as an increasing threat to global health. It is hoped that the report will promote dementia as a public health and social care priority worldwide.

    [Déterminants sociaux de la santé et du bien-être chez les jeunes Enquête sur le comportement des jeunes d'âge scolaire en matière de santé (HBSC) : rapport international sur l'étude de 2009/2010]

    Through this international report on the results of its most recent survey, the Health Behaviour in School-aged Children (HBSC) study supplies the up-to-date information needed by policy-makers at various levels of government, nongovernmental organizations, and professionals in sectors such as health, education, social services, justice and recreation.

    The latest addition to a series of HBSC reports on young people’s health, this report presents findings from the 2009/2010 survey on the demographic and social influences on the health of young people (aged 11, 13 and 15 years) in 43 countries and regions in the WHO European Region and North America. Responding to the survey, the young people described their social context (relations with family, peers and school), physical health and satisfaction with life, health behaviours (patterns of eating, tooth brushing and physical activity) and risk behaviours (use of tobacco, alcohol and cannabis, sexual behaviour, fighting and bullying). Statistical analyses were carried out to identify meaningful differences in the prevalence of health and social indicators by gender, age group and levels of family affluence.

    The aim was to provide a rigorous, systematic statistical base for describing cross-national patterns, in terms of the magnitude and direction of differences between subgroups, thus contributing to a better understanding of the social determinants of health and well-being among young people, and providing the means to help protect and promote their health.

    [Mise en œuvre du cadre européen pour la réduction de la consommation de sel: Résultats de l'enquête des États membres]
    This report is an overview and synthesis of responses to a questionnaire sent to Member States in February 2010. The questionnaire sought to capture activities at national level from mid 2008 until the end of 2009 that had taken place within the context of the common European Union Framework on voluntary national salt initiatives (the ‘Framework’). The survey is an informal tool to gather information and to enrich the discussion within the High Level Group on Nutrition and Physical Activity (the “High Level Group”) on coordinating efforts to reduce salt intake among the European population. Responses were received from all 29 participating European countries, the 27 Member States of the European Union (EU) plus Norway and Switzerland.
    The nutrient that should be reduced is sodium. As mostly sodium is consumed in the form of sodium chloride, which is salt, the High Level Group decided to communicate about ‘salt’ and not ‘sodium’, as this is also better understood by the public. This is why this report mostly refers to the term ‘salt’. The amount of sodium is multiplied by the factor 2.5 to give the equivalent amount of salt.
    This report does not prejudice or replace the report provided by the Council Conclusions of June 20101 which will be issued by the European Commission in the next year. The reporting period of the present document can be considered to cover the first two years of the Framework, i.e. 2008 and 2009.
