    [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.

    [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.

    [Prévention de l'infection à norovirus dans les écoles et les garderies d'enfants - Consultation publique]

    In line with ECDC’s commitment to openness and transparency, and in order to receive comments from the scientific community and stakeholders, ECDC is launching a public consultation on the technical report “Prevention of norovirus infection in schools and childcare facilities”.

    This technical report synthesises current international guideline recommendations and reviews findings related to the prevention and control of gastroenteritis outbreaks in schools and child care facilities. The particular focus of the report is on norovirus, which is one of the most common causes of childhood gastroenteritis and with epidemiological characteristics that promote a high rate of infectivity and transmission.

    The report also aims to contribute to identifying the key facts that can support message development for the implementation of health communication activities in child care settings.
