Health surveillance and management procedures for food-handling personnel : report of a WHO consultation [held in Geneva from 18 to 22 April 1988]
WHO Consultation on Health Surveillance and Management Procedures for Food-Handling Personnel (1989: Geneva); World Health Organization ( 1989 )

Records the conclusions and recommendations of an international group of experts commissioned to evaluate the effectiveness of current procedures for protecting the public from disease outbreaks caused by food handlers. The report focuses on the question of whether routine medical examinations of food handlers are sufficient to prevent, or at least minimize, food contamination. To answer this question, the report first examines all infections and intoxications potentially transmissible by food handlers and then considers the extent to which physical examinations, medical histories, throat swabs, blood tests, x-rays, skin tests, and examination of faeces are capable of detecting symptomatic or asymptomatic carriers. Readers are reminded that the information obtained from a health examination is valid only for the time at which it was carried out, that some infections are detectable for periods as short as 48 hours, and that others, such as infectious hepatitis, are contagious before the onset of any clinical symptoms. On the basis of this review, the report concludes that pre-employment and subsequent routine medical examinations of food handlers are ineffective and thus unnecessary. The remaining sections concentrate on the identification of effective alternative preventive measures, including outbreak surveillance, use of the Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) system, and several measures within the food industry

Health system decentralization : concepts, issues and country experience / edited by Anne Mills ... [et al.]
Mills, Anne; Vaughan, J. Patrick; Smith, Duane L; Tabibzadeh, Iraj; World Health Organization ( 1990 )

Evaluates the extent to which decentralization can serve as a policy instrument for the improvement of a nations health system. Addressed to policy-makers and administrators, the book combines a literature review with an analysis of country experiences to define what decentralization actually means when applied to the organization and management of health services. While noting the many theoretical benefits of a decentralized health system, the book concentrates on the gap between the intentions and the reality, stressing facts and arguments that show why decentralization is never easily implemented and rarely brings immediate gains. Problems identified include the resistance of civil servants to a change in the power structure, the difficulty of persuading staff and their families to accept peripheral posts, and the risk that greater local authority will mean greater opportunity for patronage and corruption. Throughout, emphasis is placed on the need to accept the fact that reform requires a long-term commitment. The main part of the book consists of case studies of decentralization as experienced in Botswana, Chile, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Senegal, Spain, Sri Lanka and Yugoslavia. Apart from illustrating the different legal and administrative mechanisms that support decentralization, these studies also provide a rich inventory of the many practical and human factors that ultimately determine the success of reforms. The book concludes with an analysis of lessons learned from these experiences. Policies for raising revenue and controlling expenditure are identified as the most sensitive issues, followed by a number of practical problems with personnel
