WHO Roma Health Case Study_low_V7.pdf.jpg
Review and reorientation of the Serbian national programme for early detection of cervical cancer towards greater health equity
( 2015 )
Abstract

Studies conducted in Serbia and worldwide concluded that socioeconomic determinants of health, such as gender, wealth, ethnicity and place of living, are strongly associated with health status. Recognized inequalities in health due to differences in socioeconomic status require a structured institutional response and multisectoral actions at many levels. The WHO Regional Office for Europe proposed using methodology developed to review and reorient national strategies, programmes and actions (SPAs) towards greater equity. The Serbian Ministry of Health appointed a working team to review their national programme for early detection of cervical cancer, the chosen SPA. This case study presents the review of the SPA, which identified Roma women and other groups who might not benefit from this programme due to barriers they face at many levels. Along with analysing barriers, it also identifies factors that might facilitate access to this programme. Key recommendations include the need for a multidisciplinary approach focusing on social determinants of health, and intersectoral collaboration of different stakeholders at national, regional and community levels.

HIV Programme Review in Albania: Antiretrovial therapy and procurement and supply management
Lazarus, Jeffrey V.; Gottfredsson, Magnus; Tavagnutti, Nicolas ( 2015 )
Abstract

This WHO country mission, conducted in March 2015, aimed to review the antiretroviral therapy and procurement and supply management components of the HIV/AIDS programme in Albania in order to address current deficiencies and inform the development of a Concept Note for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. Albania has a low HIV prevalence overall with 699 individuals diagnosed with HIV in the country at the end of 2013. It is a concentrated epidemic and data on mode of transmission is incomplete. While most of the reported cases are heterosexual transmission there may be a number of unreported or undiagnosed cases among men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs, and sex workers. As of February 2015, 21 children and 339 adult patients with HIV (total of 360) were receiving antiretroviral therapy (ART) in Albania. The number of HIV tests in the country is very low and thus the number of HIV-related deaths in the country is likely to be underestimated. The majority of people living with HIV in Albania are unaware of their infection and thus likely to be actively transmitting the virus. This report provides main and specific recommendations for optimizing HIV testing, ART and developing efficient procurement and supply chain management for HIV in Albania.

Polio-Laboratory-Network-Meeting.pdf.jpg
Meeting of Regional and Global Specialized Polio Reference Laboratories of the WHO European Polio Laboratory Network. 11–12 March 2015 National Institute for Biological Standards and Control, Potters Bar, United Kingdom
( 2015 )
Abstract

The main objective of the meeting was to make a final decision on the adoption of an updated algorithm for poliovirus isolation which is now used by GPLN laboratories in all other WHO regions. Adopting the new testing algorithm will help ensure that laboratories use fully standardized methods across the Region and will improve timeliness of detection of programmatically important polioviruses. The possible implications of using the new testing format and plans for its implementation were discussed at length based on the experience in some laboratories that adopted the change and responses to a comprehensive survey sent to all laboratories by the WHO Regional Office for Europe. The performance of the Polio Laboratory Network in the European Region and the importance of laboratory containment as required by WHO guidelines were also discussed. The meeting produced a set of recommendations for further action and consideration.

Health systems strengthening in the context of Health 2020: challenges and priorities in the WHO European Region. Expert meeting Barcelona, Spain, 3–4 November 2014
( 2015 )
Abstract

3-4 ноября 2014 г. Отдел систем здравоохранения и общественного здоровья (DSP) Европейского регионального бюро ВОЗ (ЕРБ ВОЗ) организовал совещание с участием ведущих сотрудников DSP и ряда внешних экспертов, тесно сотрудничающих с ЕРБ ВОЗ по вопросам укрепления систем здравоохранения, для обсуждения важнейших задач в этой области. Это совещание стало первым шагом к определению приоритетных направлений укрепления систем здравоохранения в период 2015-2020 гг. Выбранные приоритеты будут включены в проект резолюции по этому вопросу, который будет представлен на рассмотрение 65-й сессии Регионального комитета (РК-65). На Барселонском совещании также были обсуждены содержание и важнейшие положения предстоящего проекта стратегического документа ЕРБ ВОЗ, в котором будет изложена позиция Регионального бюро относительно приоритетов укрепления ориентированных на человека систем здравоохранения в течение следующих пяти лет, что является необходимым условием достижения целей, поставленных в политике Здоровье-2020. В процессе определения приоритетных направлений деятельности участники совещания обсудили основные ограничения, задачи и проблемы, с которыми системам здравоохранения по-видимому, придется иметь дело в ближайшие пять-десять лет, принимая во внимание разнообразие условий в странах Европейского региона ВОЗ. Участники совещания определили, каким образом ВОЗ может наилучшим образом поддерживать эффективную работу государств-членов в решении приоритетных задач на страновом и региональном уровнях, а также выработали приоритеты для формирования фактических данных, необходимых для укрепления систем здравоохранения в государствах-членах.

Health systems strengthening in the context of Health 2020: challenges and priorities in the WHO European Region. Expert meeting Barcelona, Spain, 3–4 November 2014
( 2015 )
Abstract

From November 3-4, 2014, the Division of Health Systems and Public Health (DSP), the WHO Regional Office for Europe, brought together senior staff in the Division of Health Systems and Public Health of the WHO Regional Office for Europe and external experts who have worked closely with WHO Europe on health systems strengthening to identify priority areas for health systems strengthening. The meeting was the first step in identifying priorities for health systems strengthening from 2015 to 2020 for a draft resolution to be submitted to the RC65. The meeting was also an opportunity to discuss the content of the upcoming WHO Regional Office’s draft strategic document which will inform the positioning of the Regional Office’s priorities in strengthening people-centered health systems for the next five years, to realize the goals of Health 2020. In identifying priorities, the group discussed key constraints and challenges health systems are likely to face in the next five to ten years, taking into account the diversity of countries in the European Region. The group identified ways in which WHO can best support member states (at country and regional level) to make progress in the priority areas and identified priorities for generating the evidence needed to support member states in health systems strengthening.

3rd-Meeting-European-RVC-Measles-Rubella-Elimination.pdf.jpg
Third meeting of the European Regional Verification Commission for Measles and Rubella Elimination (RVC); 10-12 November 2014 Copenhagen, Denmark
( 2015 )
Abstract

The RVC met for the third time on 10– 12 November 2014 in Copenhagen, Denmark. The 8-member panel evaluated 59 country reports, annual status updates (ASU) for 2013 and late-submitted elimination status reports (ESRs) for 2010–2012, received after the 2013 meeting. The RVC was pleased to note that 50 out of 53 Member States have now established NVCs and, as a result, more Member States had submitted timely and complete annual reports than in the previous year. Based on reports submitted, it was concluded that as of the end of 2013, there were 22 countries in which endemic measles transmission had been interrupted, and 23 countries in which endemic rubella transmission was interrupted.
