|NDPHS e-Newsletter 2/2012|
In this issue, we place the focus on occupational safety and health. In the opening article Mr. Wiking Husberg, the Chairman of the NDPHS Task Group on Occupational Safety and Health, addresses the issue of cost-effectiveness of health and safety. Further, we invite you to read about the importance of achieving a work-life balance and suggested policies in this regard.
Following the above are two articles about regional networks active in the field of occupational safety and health, namely, the Baltic Sea Network on Occupational Health and Safety and the NDPHS Task Group on Occupational Safety and Health. Read three articles presenting some of the activities of these two networks, including an article on a project aimed at developing and implementing occupational safety and health system in the North-West region of the Russian Federation. The ongoing work on analysis of occupational health services in NDPHS countries and the outcomes of an updating course on occupational diseases held in Riga, Latvia in January 2012, have also been presented. You will also find an article about WASI, a project aimed at improving occupational well-being.
Following the above are invitations to several interesting events that will take place later this year. These are: an expert-level “eHealth Acceptance Conference 2012” to be organised by the “ICT for Health” project partners, a transnational conference devoted to the implementation of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region, the “Baltic Sea Arena – WorkingLife” to be organised by Arbetsmiljöforum (the NDPHS has agreed to support the organisation of the event and to contribute to it), and an “International Conference on Occupational Health and Safety: From Policies to Practice” to be organised by the Latvian Institute of Occupational Health and Environmental Health.

The issue opens with an article about the NDPHS efforts to have health prioritised on the regional agenda. Read about actions the Partnership is taking to ensure that health would be better positioned within the funding priorities during the next EU financial period as well as included as a separate priority in the Action Plan of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region (EUSBSR).
You will also find an article about the 9th Baltic Sea States Summit held in May 2012 in Stralsund, Germany and, more specifically, its plenary session on the impact of demographic change. The Prime Ministers and the President of the European Commission had a stimulating debate during it on main challenges posed by the demographic change and policies to induce win-win situations for the future.
Following the above are two articles about the 3rd Annual EUSBSR Forum held in Copenhagen, Denmark, on 17-19 June 2012. Many interesting events took place during the Forum, which provided an opportunity to discuss the progress so far and the way forward. As in the past, the NDPHS took an active role in the event – read about the session “Making Success Stories with Russian Partners” co-organised during the Forum by the NDPHS and the outcomes of the Forum’s sessions devoted to the review of the EUSBSR Action Plan.
The issue closes with an article about PrimCare IT, a flagship project in the EUSBSR Action Plan, aimed at counteracting brain drain and professional isolation of health professionals.
