Development of environment and health indicators for European Union countries : report on a WHO working group, Berlin Germany 14-16 May 2003
World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 2003 )
Abstract

The WHO - European Centre for Environment and Health is implementing a project to establish an environmental health (EH) indicator system. The system is designed to serve public health monitoring and environmental policies in Member States as well as to support multinational analyses. The methodology developed by the WHO project provides the basis for a set of core environment and health indicators for European Union (EU) countries as part of the European Community health monitoring system. An important characteristic of the proposed set is its consistency with the existing body of legislation and regulations at EU level. This Working Group was convened in the framework of the European Commission-sponsored WHO project "Development of Environment and Health Indicators for the EU countries" (ECOEHIS) to evaluate the EH indicators proposed by WHO vis-à-vis the relevant EC body of legislation. The Working Group identified a set of environment and health indicators adequate for EH monitoring in the EU, agreed on the system adjustments necessary for its harmonization with the requirements of the legislation and recommended indicators that need further methodological developments. The ECOEHIS project network was established to effectively steer the process through coordinating country activities, assuring broad discussion by the relevant stakeholders on the proposed environment and health indicators, testing for feasibility and reaching agreement on a set of 'core' indicators through consensus. The group decided on follow-up actions to further reinforce the efforts towards the establishment of European Community health information system in order to facilitate planning, monitoring and evaluation of the relevant policies

Workshop on perinatal care : report on a WHO expert meeting, Venice, Italy 16-18 April 1998
World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 1998 )
Abstract

While perinatal care is changing in all the countries of the WHO European Region, it particularly needs reinforcement in the newly independent states of the former USSR and the countries of central and eastern Europe. This requires the development of specific strategies and tools. The WHO Regional Office for Europe, in close collaboration with the Veneto region of Italy, organized a Workshop on Perinatal Care to examine the available material, to identify the gaps and to create a task force to address them. Over 30 gynaecologists, obstetricians, neonatologists, midwives and educators, from Bulgaria, Canada, Estonia, Georgia, Israel, Italy, Kazakhstan, Lithuania, Romania, the Russian Federation, Spain, Sweden, Ukraine and the United Kingdom, attended. They agreed that strategies for interventions in perinatal care should include antenatal care and education, delivery care, the identification and correct management of obstetric complications, post-partum care and neonatal care. The participants endorsed the principles of protecting, promoting and supporting effective perinatal care and recommended the formation of a Task Force on Perinatal Care to support and advise on effective perinatal care and to develop appropriate strategies and tools for specific problems

Health care waste management within hospitals : training notes for health care personnel in central and eastern European countries
World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 1998 )
Abstract

The management of health care wastes within hospitals is the subject of considerable concern to both public health and infection control specialists. The ever-present risk of nosocomial infection of patients and medical staff within health care institutions requires careful attention in all health care activities. The proper collection, separation, transport and disposal of health care wastes within hospitals is no exception. This report has been prepared in the form of training notes to be used in conjunction with a health care waste video prepared by the WHO Nancy Project Office for use in central and eastern Europe. The training notes are designed to be given to each participant in short training exercises as a permanent reminder of the key points to ensure safe health care waste management in hospital medical departments and the auxiliary services in hospitals. Information is provided on the separation, identification, handling, treatment and disposal of wastes and the need for proper management planning and regular record-keeping is emphasized, so that information on the movement of wastes can be used to ensure that they are treated and disposed of regularly and efficiently
