World No-Tobacco Day 2003 in the European Region : report
World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 2003 )
Abstract

The World No Tobacco Day theme for 2003 was tobacco free films and tobacco free fashion. The aim of the day was to encourage the fashion and film world to take action to promote the development of a tobacco free society. WHO called on these industries to stop promoting tobacco and to partner with WHO in sending out a message about the harmful effects of tobacco. The 2003 theme built on the 2002 theme of tobacco free sport which called for a removal of tobacco industry sponsorship from sport. World No Tobacco Day provided an important opportunity to build momentum for the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) which was adopted in May 2003 by the World Health Assembly. WHO Member States were encouraged to use World No Tobacco Day to draw attention to the FCTC and, in particular, the elements relating to advertising, sponsorship and product placement

Abstract

The first meeting of the Commission for the Certification of polio Eradication from the European Region was held in Paris on 4-6 March 1996. The composition and terms of reference of the Certification Commission were agreed. The Commission considered the relevance to the European Region of the guiding principles recommended at the First Meeting of the Global Commission in 1995. Progress towards polio eradication was progressing satisfactorily following Operation MECACAR, with increasing numbers of countries becoming polio-free and fewer foci of polio remaining. There had been improvements overall in surveillance, coverage and outcomes. The Regional Office for Europe's work plan was endorsed. The laboratory network was reviewed and the role of laboratory surveillance in the certification process was considered. The experiences of other industrialized countries (Canada and USA) which had already been certified to have eliminated polio were discussed. The Commission agreed the proposed timetable for certification for the European Region
