Workshop on stable iodine prophylaxis after nuclear accidents : report on a WHO workshop, Helsinki, Finland 17-19 September 2000
AbstractIn December 1999 WHO issued updated Guidelines on Stable Iodine Prophylaxis after Nuclear Accidents, drawing on new evidence arising from the Chernobyl accident. The Workshop consisted of several presentations on the evidence underpining the Guidelines and extensive discussion by the participants, who were all respondible at country level for implementing measures to mitigate exposure after nuclear accidents. The discussions particularly stressed the practical aspects of implementing stable iodine prophylaxis in the way recommended, namely with emphasis on protecting the health of children over much wider areas than the Emergency Planning Zones. The problems encountered vary from one country to another, and so little general guidance could be provided in the Guidelines. These discussions led to a number of recommendations to be followed up by WHO
