World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 2006 )
Abstract

Representatives from the Ministries of Health and the medicines agencies from the countries in South eastern Europe participated in the South East Europe Pharmaceutical Conference organised in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, 27-28 February 2006. The conference was part of the collaborative project executed by the WHO Regional Office for Europe and the Governments in Bosnia Herzegovina, funded by the European Commission, on health sector development in Bosnia Herzegovina, which included a large pharmaceutical component. On the first day was the official delegates from the Ministries and the regulatory authorities discussed the current issues in the pharmaceutical sector and opportunities for collaboration in the region. The second day was for a broader audience and addressed a range of policy issues, and the possibilities for collaboration through a Council on Medicines for South East Europe. The meeting concluded on the need and usefulness to have a more permanent platform for collaboration on pharmaceutical policies through the establishment of a Council on Medicines. This will be discussed with the authorities in the Ministries and with external donors for possible support; and the collaboration will be taken up within the framework of the Stability Pact

Review of documentation for certification of poliomyelitis eradication (Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, United Kingdom) : report on the fifth certification commission meeting, Copenhagen, Denmark 27-29 April 1998
World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 1998 )
Abstract

The Commission met to discuss the documentation prepared by four countries for the certification of poliomyelitis eradication and to review the plan of action for 1998-2000. Achieving certification of the WHO European Region requires clear objective evidence of the absence of poliovirus circulation; judgements must be made on the data presented to the Regional Commission by the national committees. Acute flaccid paralysis (AFP) surveillance remains the preferred means of data collection supporting certification. Overall improvements in AFP surveillance have been noted in the Region, but further improvements will be needed in many countries. When alternative surveillance techniques were to be used, full descriptions and estimates should be made of their sensitivity and specificity for detection of wild polioviruses. The Commission approved the manual of operations as the appropriate means for the remainder of countries to submit data; a country report summary that presented and justified the key elements of the claim for poliomyelitis elimination should be appended. Country submissions should identify main risk groups with details of the steps taken to ensure that they did not transmit poliovirus. Thirty other "non-endemic" countries require review by the end of 1999, while manuals of operations would be requested from the countries of the "recently endemic" and "endemic" zones in 1999 and 2000. The national committees of the four countries considered at the Meeting were well aware of the challenges of providing documentation; individual guidance would be offered to other committees as necessary based on submitted plans of action. Updates from all countries will be requested when the Regional Commission approached a final judgement on Region-wide elimination. Only when all data were reviewed and found acceptable could the Region be certified as having eliminated indigenous poliovirus circulation

Review of the documentation for certification of polio eradication in southern and central European countries : report on a WHO meeting, Budapest, Hungary 3-6 May 1999
World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 1999 )
Abstract

The seventh meeting of the European Commission for Certification of Polio Elimination, and third meeting of Chairpersons of National Committees, was held in Budapest, Hungary, from 3 to 6 May, 1999. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the documentation for the certification of poliomyelitis eradication in 15 non-endemic countries of the centre/south of the WHO European Region and to review the plan of action for 199962000 in the light of experience gained. The Commission members reviewed the national committee reports submitted and heard presentations from the national chairpersons. Many of the reports were reassuring that data were or would be forthcoming to make convincing cases for polio elimination. However, the Commission was concerned that some countries had a great deal still to do. Most countries submitted summaries that specified the grounds on which they based their beliefs that polio had been eliminated. With some exceptions, countries undertaking AFP surveillance were reporting low rates and even lower compliance with indicators. Many countries had been able to find data on enterovirus surveillance, but more information would be required on the non-typed strains, the sources of strains, the populations from whom they had been collected, and the quality assurance schemes in place for the laboratories involved
