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.

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.

Abstract

Romania has the highest incidence of TB in the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA), representing one quarter of the EU/EEA TB burden. A review of the national TB programme in Romania was jointly organized by the WHO Regional Office for Europe and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, with WHO leading all operations, from 10 to 21 March 2014. The review acknowledged the high rates of detection and treatment success achieved among patients with drugsusceptible forms of TB; it also pointed to the large proportion of patients with multidrug-resistant TB who are not detected or are poorly treated. The review identified major challenges to be addressed at programme level as well as at health system level and gave the Ministry of Health and the national TB programme 14 main recommendations for improvement.
