    D’après le nouveau rapport de l’OCDE, les troubles mentaux représentent un problème croissant dans la société, affectant de plus en plus la productivité et le bien-être des personnes au travail.
    Mal-être au travail ? Mythes et réalités sur la santé mentale et l’emploi, révèle qu’un travailleur sur cinq souffre de troubles mentaux, comme la dépression ou l’anxiété, et que bon nombre d’entre eux peinent à s’en sortir.
    Le rapport bat en brèche plusieurs idées fausses concernant la question de la santé mentale, et estime en conclusion que les pouvoirs publics doivent s’efforcer de trouver des solutions nouvelles. La plupart des personnes souffrant d’un trouble mental travaillent : leurs taux d’emploi oscillent entre 55 et 70 %, soit 10 à 15 points de pourcentage de moins que ceux des personnes en bonne santé.

    [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.

    [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.

    Chronic, non-communicable diseases are a challenge of epidemic proportions. At a global scale, non-communicable diseases are estimated to cost $47 trillion by 2030. Europe currently has the highest number of deaths and disability in the world due to these diseases.
    This paper represents the European Chronic Disease Alliance’s (ECDA) collective input to policy makers in the frame of the European Union’s reflection process on chronic disease, specifically called for in the Council conclusions of 7 December 2010 on “Innovative approaches for chronic diseases in public health and health care systems”. The ECDA would like to urge the European Commission and the Member States to include the recommendations provided herewith in any forthcoming strategy on chronic diseases.
    For the purpose of this paper, the ECDA definition for “chronic diseases” is: Chronic non-communicable disease or conditions that are of long duration and generally slow progression, linked by common risk factors such as tobacco, physical inactivity, nutrition, alcohol, environment, and are largely preventable.
    On the basis of these Council conclusions, this paper recommends a number of concrete measures that can be taken by the European Commission and Member States to tackle chronic diseases effectively. First and foremost the ECDA calls for a coordinated EU-led strategy to tackle the enormous challenge to societies posed by chronic diseases.

    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.

    Recueil d’Informations sur les Traumatismes et Accidents au Luxembourg.

    le Ministère de la Sante en collaboration avec le Centre de Recherche Public de la Santé s’est engagé pour une politique de prévention des accidents dans le cadre du programme européen IDB (Injury Data Base) auquel le Luxembourg adhère. Au niveau national, ce programme porte le nom de RETRACE (REcueil d’informations sur les TRaumatismes et ACcidents au Luxembourg).

    Les accidents sont une des majeures causes de décès, d’hospitalisation et de handicap dans notre pays. Près de 40 000 personnes par année sont victimes d’un accident ou traumatisme au Luxembourg : accidents de la route, du travail, sportif, à domicile ou lors de loisirs.

    Aujourd’hui, nous savons qu’un grand nombre de ces accidents pourrait être évité, si leurs causes et circonstances étaient mieux connues. Pour cela, les informations sur votre accident contribueront à mettre en place des mesures de prévention efficaces et adaptées.

    Faits sur l' endométriose].
    Endometriosis is a disease in which tissue similar to the lining inside the uterus (called “the endometrium”), is found outside the uterus, where it induces a chronic inflammatory reaction that may result in scar tissue. It is primarily found on the pelvic peritoneum, ovaries, in the recto-vaginal septum, on the bladder, and bowel. In very rare cases it has been found on the diaphragm and in the lungs.
    Endometriosis affects an estimated 1 in 10 women during their reproductive years (ie. usually between the ages of 15 to 49), which is approximately 176 million women in the world.
    The symptoms of endometriosis include painful periods, painful ovulation, pain during or after sexual intercourse, abnormal bleeding, chronic pelvic pain, fatigue, and infertility, and can impact on general physical, mental, and social well being.
    A general lack of awareness combined with a “normalisation” of symptoms results in a significant delay from when a woman first experiences symptoms until she eventually is diagnosed and treated.
