Second meeting on training in reproductive health for CCEE/NIS : report on a WHO meeting, Copenhagen, Denmark 17-18 October 1996
World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 1997 )
Abstract

European public health training programmes increasingly offer courses in reproductive health to participants from the countries of central and eastern Europe (CCEE) and the newly independent states (NIS) of the former USSR. The WHO Regional Office for Europe convened a second meeting of institutions and organizations offering such courses. After an overview of the changes in reproductive health in the CCEE and NIS (including the epidemiology of sexually transmitted diseases and HIV/AIDS) and a summary of the relevant activities in Europe since the previous meeting, the participants presented their training programmes and discussed training objectives and implementation for the future. They recommended the continued coordination of training activities, the facilitation of twinning arguments, and the establishment of a Scientific Advisory Group on Training in Reproductive Health to assist the Regional Office in responding to needs in the CCEE and NIS. The members of the Group will share the functions of the clearing-house recommended at the previous meeting

The participants made 30 specific recommendations on such topics as the use of the WHO bibliographic database, electronic publishing by WHO and working more closely with one another, with WHO and with the European Association of Health Information of Health Information and Libraries (EAHIL).
