European Meeting on Women's Health Institutions (1st: 1995 : Vienna, Austria); World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 1996 )
Abstract

The first European Meeting on Women's Health Institutions brought together 150 participants from all over Europe to follow up the recommendations made by the 1994 WHO conference on women's health. The participants addressed issues of appropriate care for women, global changes and emergent trends in women's health, the promotion of women's health in Europe and the priorities, tasks and objectives of women's health centres. The discussions also covered aspects of management, including the financing, human resources and management of health centres, as well as press work and public relations. Case studies from Austria, Germany and the Netherlands clearly showed the important role of nongovernmental organizations in the provision of health services to women in western Europe. The participants concluded that the Forum of Women's Health Institutions was established to exchange experience and examples of good practice, and, while noting the diversity of women's health institutions, nevertheless identified nine common criteria and eight common objectives for them

Guidance settings for quality standards : report on a WHO working group, Barcelona, Spain, 12-14 May 1997
World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 1998 )
Abstract

The WHO Air quality guidelines for Europe were updated and revised in 1996. They will form a basis for the derivation of national or international air quality standards. Nevertheless, simply adopting the WHO guidelines might lead to standards that could not be achieved in practice at acceptable cost. To provide guidance to countries on how to move from health-based guidelines to legally binding standards, a working group met to discuss the technical issues that need to be considered in setting air quality standards, such as: analytical methodology, technical feasibility, monitoring strategy, cost-benefit and cost-effectiveness analysis, and stakeholder involvement. The working group achieved its major goal in writing a report that will serve as an integral part of the introductory chapter of the revised WHO air quality guidelines

Bonnefoy, Xavier; World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 1997 )
Abstract

Public spaces have a range of roles to play in a town or city. They are places where many things can happen - exchanges, meetings, even conflicts. They are an ideal setting for recreation and sport, as well as for cultural and social events, and for simple relaxation. Thy are open spaces, often embellished with plants and water, helping to maintain a balanced urban environment, with all the benefits that can bring for the well-being of the inhabitants. Public spaces should be evenly distributed across every neighourhood of the city. If mixed use in public spaces is achieved, it can be an important tool in combating social segregation. A long-term approach to planning, an equitable geographical spread, proper development and regular maintenance will allow authorities to spread their financial burden over a longer period. Various aspects of planning and management are discussed here. Action plans are suggested which will allow open spaces to become genuine public spaces once more, making the city a little more green, and a little more blue
