Task Force on Economic Perspectives in Environment and Health : report of the second meeting, Paris, France 19 October 1998
World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 1999 )
Abstract

The Third Ministerial Conference on Environment and Health will be held in London on 16-18 June 1999. It will focus on approaches and activities that will tangibly improve the environment and health of future generations. The economic dimension of environment and health will be on the Conference agenda; the economy will be dealt with both as a target and as a means for achieving the environmental health policy. The Task Force on Perspectives in Environment and Health was established in order to prepare the initiative to be taken by the Member States of the WHO European Region and international organizations and institutions. The Conference document on economic perspectives in environment and health is intended to be the common product of the key international institutions involved in questions combining economic and environment and health dimensions, such as the EU, OECD, UN/ECE, UNEP, World Bank and WHO, as well as input from some experts from Member States. The advice of the ministers participating in the Task Force is needed in order to reflect the opinion of those Member States, as well as to assist in formulating the long-term direction of action to be taken. In order to mobilize available resources and knowledge, the Conference is expected to endorse the establishment of a long-term collaborative programme between relevant international organizations and institutions. The meeting specified the scope of the programme of collaboration and the added value of its activities, sketched the organizational and managerial aspects of the programme, prepared a draft ministerial resolution for the Conference and discussed the plan of work until the pre-Conference meeing in Bled, Slovenia on 14-16 February 1999

World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 1998 )
Abstract

This Fourth Workshop was the first to be held following the shift from the pilot Health Promoting Hospitals (HPH) projects to the national/regional networks within the new framework of the Vienna Recommendations on Health Promoting Hospitals. The participants in the meeting were the national/regional HPH network coordinators. The first part of the Workshop focused on the development of the networks and their coordination at international level. Each coordinator made a short presentation on the development of the network and reported on successes and failures. Further, the HPH database was presented, and suggestions for its optimal use were discussed. The second part of the meeting was devoted to a discussion of evaluation systems and strategies for HPH activities, based on the reports prepared by the network coordinators. An analysis of the strategies demonstrated that evaluations are mainly carried out at hospital level and that some coordinators experience great difficulties in applying evaluation methods. The meeting concluded with some remarks in relation to the membership, the use of the database, and the further development of the network

World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 1998 )
Abstract

The Third European Conference on Environment and Health will be held in London in June 1999. This task force was established to guide the preparation of the outcome document for ministerial decisions, drawing up the principles and main actions to be taken by the Member States of the WHO European Region and by international organizations and institutions. The Meeting focused primarily on the following questions. What use has been made of economic analysis for the recommendations and policies targeted towards environmental health? How have environmental health concerns been integrated into sectoral and macroeconomic recommendations and policies? What lessons can be learned from current practices: the successes, gaps and barriers identified, good practice and failures? How could economic analysis be used to assist Member States in handling economics with respect to environmental health, and in efficiently allocating resources to it? The Meeting also addressed procedures, in particular how the agencies could work better together in the future and whether there were specific needs for establishing new mechanisms of cooperation, and discussed the plan of work for April 1 October 1998
