World Hepatitis Day: More must be done to stop this silent killer
  Viral hepatitis - a group of infectious diseases known as Hepatitis A, B, C, D, and E - affects hundreds of millions of people worldwide, causing acute and chronic disease and killing close to 1.4 million people every year. On World Hepatitis Day, 28 July 2013, WHO and partners focus on the fact that although the burden of disease caused by viral hepatitis is growing, it remains largely ignored or unknown to many policymakers, health workers and the public.

The European health report 2012: charting the way to well-being
Anglès
2013
Text complet: http://ves.cat/hh9c
 
-
Resum:
Like its predecessors, the 2012 European health report describes both the overall improvements in health in the WHO European Region and their uneven distribution within and between countries. It breaks new ground, however, by helping both to define well-being, a goal of Europe´s new health policy, Health 2020, and to map the way towards achieving it.

Anglès
2013
Text complet: http://www.euro.who.int/__data/assets/pdf_file/0020/189020/e96853.pdf
-
Resum:
In 2009 - 2011, the WHO Regional Office for Europe and the United Kingdom Health Protection Agency undertook a project to investigate the adverse health effects of floods and to understand how best to protect the health of populations during floods in the WHO European Region. The project had two main components. A questionnaire was sent to 50 of the 53 Member States of the WHO European Region to collect information on recent experience of floods, their health effects and current preparedness and response mechanisms. In addition, a systematic review was undertaken of the epidemiological literature on the global impact of flooding on health. Analysis of the returned questionnaires and the peer-reviewed literature brought to light many issues pertinent to Europe.

Guideline: Calcium supplementation in pregnant women
Anglès
2013
Text complet: www.who.int/iris/bitstream/10665/85120/1/9789241505376_eng.pdf  
-
Resum:
This guideline provides global, evidence-informed recommendations on the use of calcium supplements as a public health intervention for the purpose of improving pregnancy outcomes. Poor maternal and newborn health and nutrition remain significant contributors to the burden of disease and mortality. Calcium supplementation has the potential to reduce adverse gestational outcomes, in particular, by decreasing the risk of developing hypertensive disorders during pregnancy, which are associated with a significant number of maternal deaths and considerable risk of preterm birth, the leading cause of early neonatal and infant mortality.

Health effects of particulate matter. Policy implications for countries in eastern Europe, Caucasus and central Asia
Anglès
2013
Text complet:   ves.cat/hh8
-
Resum:
Despite some improvements, current levels of air pollution still pose a considerable risk to the environment and to human health in the WHO European Region. One issue of concern is that monitoring of particulate matter is very limited in the countries of eastern Europe, the Caucasus and central Asia. This paper summarizes the evidence about the health effects of air pollution from particulate matter and presents the policy implications, the aim being to stimulate policy-makers to develop more effective strategies to reduce air pollution and its health effects in those countries.
