Noise : report on a WHO coordination meeting of experts, Budapest, Hungary, 28-29 August 1997
World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 1997 )
Abstract

Following the Helsinki Conference in June 1994, several programmes have been undertaken by the WHO Regional Office for Europe in reply to requests from Member States for help in implementing their policies on environment and health at both national and local levels. Among those programmes, the WHO pamphlet series for local authorities aims at providing local decision-makers with accessible and reliable information on various aspects of environment and health, so that they can quickly appraise their situation and take decisions more efficiently. The series is currently concerned with 10 themes, including noise, and under that theme 11 titles have been defined. The present meeting was organized, with the financial support of the Swiss Ministry of Health, to gather the authors of these documents together to design a clear table of contents, to ensure consistency and avoid duplication, and to take advantage of the experience of several specialists to make the pamphlets more comprehensive

World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 1997 )
Abstract

The WHO Regional Office for Europe held a meeting to determine the scope, purpose, objectives and products of a project for health promoting universities. Topics of discussion included the concept of the project, its organizational development and management, and criteria and mechanisms for network membership. It was suggested that the guiding principles pay particular attention to equity, accountability and sustainability, and, to convince prospective members of the value of the network, it should be evidence based. To facilitate the management of the project, the participants agreed that guidelines for managers be collated, including an explanation of organizational development. They also debated three strategies for networking, favouring a network with a commitment to the project philosophy, products and infrastructure over looser affiliations that would yield higher membership but lower levels of commitment. Finally, a four-step strategy for launching the project, including future products, was summarized

World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 1997 )
Abstract

The Technical Meeting on European Strategies to Combat Violence against Women was held in Copenhagen on 11-13 December 1997. The WHO Regional Office for Europe acted on its commitment to combating violence against women by bringing together academic experts and representatives from health services and women's organizations from across the European Region of WHO, including many from central and eastern Europe and central Asia. The overall objective of the Meeting was to build on existing links between WHO and country-based networks and centres specializing in the issue of violence against women in an effort to draw up proposals for joint strategies at the European level and to strengthen future cooperation and coordination. The Meeting presented research studies, surveys and concrete projects from countries in the western and eastern parts of the Region. The Meeting made recommendations on epidemiology and data collection, addressing the consequences of violence against women for their mental health and providing appropriate health services. The Meeting was a starting-point for exchanging experiences and sharing information on the extent and implications of the problem. The recommendations of the Meeting are intended to contribute to the adoption of formal guidelines and policies at both national and European levels that effectively combat violence against women

European Longitudinal Study of Pregnancy and Childhood (ELSPAC) : report on a meeting of principal investigators, Bristol, United Kingdom 23-29 june 1997
World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 1998 )
Abstract

The European Longitudinal Study of Pregnancy and Childhood (ELSPAC) was initiated by the Regional Office in 1985 to improve epidemiological knowledge of factors influencing children's health in European countries. It is designed to cover various aspects of the life and environment of pregnant women and children. The 1997 meeting was devoted to planning examinations and questionnaires for children in the study aged 7 years and, following the recent publication of the first ELSPAC book, the further planning of the next three books. Progress reports from participating countries were reviewed and discussed. One study centre in Ukraine had stopped collecting data, and Greece was not represented owing to lack of funds and the unlikelihood of it being able to carry out the 7-year follow-up. There were now 11 study centres collecting data in 6 countries and areas (Czech Republic, Isle of Man, Russian Federation, Slovakia, Ukraine and United Kingdom). The participants agreed that the next meeting should focus on the publication of the three books as planned, and to report on progress with the three books as planned, and to report on progress with the 7-year assessments
