Abstract

The WHO Consultation on Development of National Environmental Health Action Plans - Environmental Health and the Role of Medical Professionals was attended by experts from seven countries and WHO staff.

The participants described physicians' role in environmental health: to assess, investigate, diagnose, monitor and treat environmentally related disorders, and to help to prevent, control or correct environmental hazards that lead to them.

World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 2003 )
Abstract

Experts from ministries of health and/ or environment in twenty-seven countries met to agree on a common position for Member States on the need and the general scope of European Environment and Health Information System (EHIS). They drafted a contribution to the Ministerial declaration to be presented at the Fourth Ministerial Conference on Environment and Health in June 2004 in Budapest. The group acknowledged the importance of collaborative international effort in the establishment of a pan-European environment and health information system as a common base for policy-making. The participants reconfirmed the usefulness of such a system in providing a common 'language', and opportunities to exchange information on best practices. They discussed Member States' involvement and expectations from the system, including its key features, and pointed out organizational mechanisms for its operation and challenges in implementation. The group acknowledged the importance of a legal framework for EHIS to operate successfully. It was emphasized that the current work of the European Commission on the Environment and Health Action Plan may be a highly relevant contribution towards the establishment of the EHIS

Development of environment and health indicators for European Union countries : report on a WHO working group, Berlin Germany 14-16 May 2003
World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 2003 )
Abstract

The WHO - European Centre for Environment and Health is implementing a project to establish an environmental health (EH) indicator system. The system is designed to serve public health monitoring and environmental policies in Member States as well as to support multinational analyses. The methodology developed by the WHO project provides the basis for a set of core environment and health indicators for European Union (EU) countries as part of the European Community health monitoring system. An important characteristic of the proposed set is its consistency with the existing body of legislation and regulations at EU level. This Working Group was convened in the framework of the European Commission-sponsored WHO project "Development of Environment and Health Indicators for the EU countries" (ECOEHIS) to evaluate the EH indicators proposed by WHO vis-à-vis the relevant EC body of legislation. The Working Group identified a set of environment and health indicators adequate for EH monitoring in the EU, agreed on the system adjustments necessary for its harmonization with the requirements of the legislation and recommended indicators that need further methodological developments. The ECOEHIS project network was established to effectively steer the process through coordinating country activities, assuring broad discussion by the relevant stakeholders on the proposed environment and health indicators, testing for feasibility and reaching agreement on a set of 'core' indicators through consensus. The group decided on follow-up actions to further reinforce the efforts towards the establishment of European Community health information system in order to facilitate planning, monitoring and evaluation of the relevant policies
