    [Rapport européen sur la prévention de la maltraitance envers les aînés]

    Elder maltreatment is pervasive throughout the WHO European Region: at least 4 million elderly people are estimated to experience maltreatment in any one year and 2500 of them will die each year. Most countries in the Region have an ageing population, putting increasing numbers of people at risk.

    This report highlights the biological, social, cultural, economic and environmental factors that influence the risk of being a victim or perpetrator of elder maltreatment, as well as the protective factors that can help prevent it. There is some evidence of effective interventions, including psychological programmes for perpetrators and programmes designed to change attitudes towards older people, improve the mental health of caregivers and, in earlier life, to promote nurturing relationships and learn social skills. The evidence base needs to be strengthened, but surveys show that the public and policy-makers are already concerned about the problem. This report proposes a set of actions for Member States, international agencies, nongovernmental organizations, researchers, practitioners and other stakeholders to strengthen the policy response and devote adequate resources to the issue.

    [Preuve d'actions sensibles à la sexospécificité afin de prévenir et de gérer les blessures et la toxicomanie: Santé des jeunes – une intervention pansociétale]

    The WHO Regional Office for Europe supports Member States in improving adolescent health by recommending comprehensive, multisectoral and evidence-informed adolescent health approaches; by delineating the critical contribution of the health sector; by fostering actions towards reducing inequalities; and by addressing gender as a key determinant of adolescent health. This publication aims to support this work in the framework of the European strategy for child and adolescent health and development, and is part of the WHO Regional Office for Europe contribution to the development of a new policy framework for Europe, Health 2020, for which the WHO Regional Office for Europe has been mandated by the 53 Member States.

    In most European countries there is amounting evidence on gender differences among adolescents with regard to exposure and vulnerability to injuries and substance abuse, however, preventive policies and programmes remain in many instances gender neutral. Generally, there seems to be an assumption that interventions and programmes will be just as effective for boys as for girls. However evidence shows that gender sensitive interventions are more effective and it is recommended that awareness of gender issues in prevention should be included in professional training and continuing education programs for prevention specialists.
