Access to drugs in the Newly Independent States : towards sharing the patient's burden : report on a WHO seminar, London, United Kingdom 13-14 October 1997
World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 1998 )
Abstract

The WHO Regional Office for Europe organized a Seminar for the newly independent states (NIS) to analyse the increased cost of pharmaceuticals to patients and the effect of this on access to health care and to discuss successes and failures in the various countries. The aims of the seminar were to develop strategies and programmes aimed at providing political awareness of this problem, to suggest new approaches and concepts and to make policy-makers as well as government officials aware of the effect of their decisions on the accessibility, and especially the affordability, of health care and drug treatment for the entire population. The Seminar was attended by deputy ministers of health responsible for pharmaceuticals and heads of drug regulatory agencies. The Seminar provided an overview and basic information from the NIS on the role of national authorities, hospital managers, physicians and pharmacists in improving access to drugs in hospitals and primary health care. The Seminar provided participants with different mechanisms to increase access, such as improving methods of procurement, drug selection and prescribing, budgeting, drug reimbursement and regulatory measures. Examples of successful initiatives and approaches in different NIS were presented and discussed. As a result of the Seminar, the participants became more aware of the serious consequences of the declining affordability of drugs on the access to health care and its effect on the health of the population. The complex and political character of the problem is an additional hurdle in finding sustainable solutions. Practical and feasible recommendations were given, and the implementation of these recommendations at country and intercountry level will be followed up with the assistance of the pharmaceuticals programme

Addressing the social determinants of health: the urban dimension and the role of local government
( 2012 )
Abstract

This report summarizes the evidence on the social determinants of health and the built environment with special reference to the role of local government across countries in the WHO European Region. It draws on the findings of the global Commission on Social Determinants of Health and the European review of social determinants of health and the health divide. Through its leadership, local government has a significant role to play in working across sectors and with civil society partners to support and accelerate action to address the social determinants of health and the causes of health inequalities. The evidence presented here provides the background to the complementary report Healthy cities tackle the social determinants of inequities in health: a framework for action.

Consultation on the development of patients' rights in Europe : report on a WHO meeting, Gothenburg, Sweden 18-19 August 1997
World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 1998 )
Abstract

An extensive and powerful movement for patients' rights and citizens' empowerment has emerged in the European Region. One of the fundamental challenges is to understand that citizens' participation in the planning and management of their own health care services is critical. The consultation established a network on patients' rights and citizens' empowerment lead by the WHO Regional Office for Europe, and decided that the network would meet yearly to debate developments in the field of patients' rights
