|NDPHS e-Newsletter 2/2015|
This issue of the NDPHS e-Newsletter opens with an article about the recently held ministerial-level Partnership Annual Conference (PAC), which adopted a declaration on the growing threat of antimicrobial resistance, the latter being the topic addressed during the PAC side-event held on the day before the Conference. Actions taken by the NDPHS to increase policy and other decision makers’ understanding and recognition of the importance of health and social well-being for the economy and other policy areas are presented in one of the articles along with their outcomes.
With three dedicated articles, the focus of this issue is on occupational safety and health (OSH) in the Northern Dimension area. A recent study not only finds that there is severe underreporting of work injuries in the Baltic Sea region, but also that there are conspicuous differences between the countries. Another survey was conducted to investigate the reasons for underreporting and to develop perspectives for improving surveillance systems. Finally, the last article provides a country example and focusses on the role of occupational health services in workplace health and safety management.
|NDPHS e-Newsletter 1/2015|
This issue of the NDPHS e-Newsletter updates you about the strategic planning processes, which were carried out during 2014 and 2015: the NDPHS Strategy 2020 and the EUSBSR Action Plan have both been adopted. Their main goals and implications for the future are presented in two articles.
The EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region has not only entered a new programming period with the revised Action Plan, but also received new impulses for future cooperation during the 6th Annual Forum of the EUSBSR, which took place on 15-16 June 2015 in Jurmala, Latvia. The Policy Area “Health” was prominently featured during the event, not least through a workshop organised by the NDPHS, about which you can read in this issue of the e-Newsletter.
Finally, we have included several articles for the readers interested in regional projects currently being implemented in our region. More specifically, these articles provide an update on the good progress made by two NDPHS Secretariat-led EU co-financed projects – “Building capacity in prevention of HIV and associated infections among youth at risk in the Northern Dimension area” and the “Northern Dimension Antibiotic Resistance Study (NoDARS),” as well as a project “MOBI4health” coordinated by the University of Gdańsk, Poland.
