    [Etude comparative sur la population d’usagers de drogue au Portugal et un échantillon représentatif de toxicomanes portugais résidents du Grand-Duché de Luxembourg]
    Entre 1995 et 1997, jusqu’à 50% des toxicomanes d’origine étrangère en traitement au Grand-Duché de Luxembourg étaient de nationalité portugaise. Cette tendance se confirme à la vue des cas de décès par overdose ou niveau national. Ces observations ont été à la base d’un travail de recherche, initié par le point focal luxembourgeois de l’O.E.D.T., qui procède à une étude comparative des trois sous-populations suivantes : les toxicomanes de nationalité luxembourgeoise, les toxicomanes d’origine portugaise en traitement dans les institutions luxembourgeoises et enfin les toxicomanes portugais en traitement dans leur pays
    d’origine. La confrontation des données socio-démographiques a révélé d’importantes différences entre ces trois populations. Les toxicomanes d’origine portugaise en traitement au Luxembourg, en majorité de sexe masculin (91%), présentent un âge moyen peu élevé (M=25 ans et 9 mois) ainsi qu’un niveau d’éducation faible comparé aux deux autres populations considérées. En ce qui concerne les données relatives à la consommation de drogues illicites, on retiendra que 98% des toxicomanes portugais autochtones consomment préférentiellement des opiacés contre 82% pour les toxicomanes d’origine portugaise en traitement au Luxembourg. 75% des derniers ont eu recours au mode d’administration intraveineux au moment de la collecte de données contre 51.5% pour les toxicomanes portugais. La présente étude a également révélé que les toxicomanes portugais résidant au Luxembourg présentent le taux d’échange de matériel d’injection usé le plus bas (32%) alors que 21.9% des toxicomanes vivant au Portugal sont HIV positifs comparés aux 4% des deux autres populations retenues.

    [Rapport OMS sur l'épidémie mondiale de tabagisme 2011 - Mise en garde sur les dangers du tabac]
    This report is the third in a series of WHO reports on the status of global tobacco control policy implementation.
    All data on the level of countries’ achievement for the six MPOWER measures have been updated through 2010, and additional data have been collected on warning the public about the dangers of tobacco. The report examines in detail the two primary strategies to provide health warnings – labels on tobacco product packaging and anti-tobacco mass media campaigns. It provides a comprehensive overview of the evidence base for warning people about the harms of tobacco use as well as country-specific information on the status of these measures.
    To continue the process of improving data analysis, categories of policy achievement have been refined and, where possible, made consistent with new and evolving guidelines for the implementation of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control. Data from the 2009 report have been re-analyzed to be consistent with these new categories, allowing for more direct comparisons of the data across both reports.

    [Rapport de situation mondial sur l'alcool et la santé 2014]

    The Global status report on alcohol and health 2014 presents a comprehensive perspective on the global, regional and country consumption of alcohol, patterns of drinking, health consequences and policy responses in Member States. It represents a continuing effort by the World Health Organization (WHO) to support Member States in collecting information in order to assist them in their efforts to reduce the harmful use of alcohol, and its health and social consequences. The report was launched in Geneva on Monday 12 May 2014 during the second meeting of the global network of WHO national counterparts for implementation of the global strategy to reduce the harmful use of alcohol.

    [Données et information sur la santé des femmes dans l'Union européenne]
    This report “Data and Information on Women’s Health in the European Union” provides a short overview concerning women’s health.
    This report provides an overview of the main topics, as a necessary first step for further work. Of course, much more could be done in all the areas covered for example in the mental health area on “violence against women”, or in the lifestyle areas on smoking and alcohol.
    Nevertheless, this report provides an overview of issues related to women’s health across the EU Member States also including EEA countries. It highlights gaps and special topics where research and more information are needed.
    Some of the principal findings of this report are the following:
    - The main causes of death in women in the EU and EEA are cardiovascular disease (CVD) and cancer,
    - Women are particularly affected by mental health problems such as depression, dementia and Alzheimer’s,
    - There is a great need for further research into how certain diseases affect women in particular.

    BACKGROUND/AIM:
    We analysed gender differences in national fatal overdose (FOD) cases related to opiates and cocaine use between 1985 and 2011 (n = 340).
    METHODS:
    Cross-examination of national data from law enforcement and drug use surveillance sources and of forensic evidence. Bivariate and logistic regression analysis of male/female differences according to sociodemographics, forensic evidence and drug use trajectories.
    RESULTS:
    The burden of deaths caused by FOD on the general national mortality was higher for men (PMR/100=0.55) compared with women (PMR/100=0.34). Compared with their male peers, women were younger at the time of death (t=3.274; p=0.001) and showed shorter drug use careers (t=2.228; p=0.028). Heroin use was recorded more frequently in first drug offences of female victims (AOR=6.59; 95% CI 2.97-14.63) and according to forensic evidence, psychotropic prescription drugs were detected to a higher degree in females (AOR=2.019; 95% CI 1.065-3.827).
    CONCLUSION:
    The time window between the onset of illicit drug use and its fatal outcome revealed to be shorter for women versus men included in our study. Early intervention in female drug users, routine involvement of first-line healthcare providers and increased attention to use of poly- and psychotropic prescription drugs might contribute to prevent premature drug-related death and reduce gender differences.

    [Atlas de la santé en Europe]
    This updated statistical atlas presents key health figures for the WHO European Region. They cover basic data on populations, births, deaths, life expectancy and diseases, lifestyle and environmental indicators, such as drinking, smoking and traffic accidents, and types and levels of health care.
    Each indicator is presented as a map to show overall regional variations, a bar chart to indicate country rankings and a time chart to show trends over time in three main country groupings.
    Using the WHO Regional Office for Europe’s unique Health for All database, combined with the best alternative sources of data around the Region, this atlas offers the most comprehensive overview of health in Europe. In a handy size, this atlas is designed to be an easily accessible resource at all times, in the office or on the road.

    The fifth edition of “Injuries in the European Union” presents an EU-level summary of the most recent injury statistics, covering the years 2010-2012. This report presents data from the European Injury Data Base (IDB) on non-fatal injuries treated in emergency departments at hospitals, complemented by data from WHO-Europe and Eurostat on respectively fatal injuries and hospital admissions.
    The IDB is a unique data source that contains standardised cross-national data on the external causes and circumstances of injuries treated in emergency departments. Thanks to IDB we can present a comprehensive picture of the entire spectrum of accidents and injuries and the wide range of risk factors involved. This is much needed for guiding prevention actions.
    The members of the IDB-network, i.e. the national bodies which collect and share data in accordance with a common methodology, are to be congratulated for their efforts to enhance the reporting on the burden of injury and its external causes and circumstances at national and regional as well as at EU level.
    EuroSafe acknowledges also with thanks Rupert Kisser (Austrian Road Safety Board KFV) and Steven Macey (Swansea University) for collating all the statistics and IDB-data presented in this publication and for producing the fifth edition of the report on Injuries in the European Union.
    This report has been produced in the framework of the JAMIE-project which has received funding from the European Union, in the framework of the Health Programme.

    Reports with data from the European Injury Data Base (IDB) are available on the EUROSAFE website.
