    [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.

    [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.

    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.

    [Rapport 2012 sur l’état de l’art des activités relatives aux maladies rares en Europe - Partie I: Aperçu des activités sur les maladies rares en Europe ]
    This document was produced by the Scientific Secretariat of the European Union Committee of Experts on Rare Diseases (EUCERD), through the EUCERD Joint Action: Working for Rare Diseases (N° 2011 22 01), which covers a three year period (March 2012 – February 2015).
    The present report aims to provide an informative and descriptive overview of rare disease activities at European Union (EU) and Member State (MS) level in the field of rare diseases and orphan medicinal products up to the end of 2011. A range of stakeholders in each Member State/country have been consulted during the elaboration of the report, which has been validated as an accurate representation of activities at national level, to the best of their knowledge, by the Member State/country representatives of the European Union Committee of Experts on Rare Diseases. The reader, however, should bear in mind that the information provided is not exhaustive and is not an official position of either the European Commission, its Agencies or national health authorities.
    The report is split into five parts available on the EURCED website

    • Part I: Overview of rare disease activities in Europe
    • Part II: Key developments in the field of rare diseases in 2011
    • Part III: European Commission activities in the field of rare diseases
    • Part IV: European Medicines Agency activities and other European activities in the field of rare diseases
    • Part V: Activities in EU Member States and other European countries in the field of rare diseases
    Each part contains the following description of the methodology, sources and validation process of the entire report, and concludes with a selected bibliography and list of persons having contributed to the report.

    [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.

    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.

    [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.

    [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.

    [Gestion des risques psychosociaux au travail: une analyse des résultats de l'enquête européenne des entreprises sur les risques nouveaux et émergents (ESENER)]
    In 2009, EU-OSHA carried out the first Europe-wide establishment survey on health and safety at the workplace, the European Survey of Enterprises on New and Emerging Risks (ESENER). Following on from the initial analysis presented in the descriptive overview report in 2010, four secondary analysis projects have been carried out in 2011. This report focuses on management of psychosocial risks at work, exploring how practices vary across Europe depending on, for example, establishment size, location and sector.
