Assessing Chronic Disease Management in European Health Systems: Country Reports

Many countries are exploring innovative approaches to redesign delivery systems to provide appropriate support to people with long-standing health problems. Central to these efforts to enhance chronic care are approaches that seek to better bridge the boundaries between professions, providers and institutions, but, as this study clearly demonstrates, countries have adopted differing strategies to design and implement such approaches.

Regional Communication Strategy for the Prevention and Control of Birth Defects

Measuring Core Health Indicators in the South-East Asia Region 2014
within changing health scenarios, the questions often asked by both ICT providers and users are: what data needs to be collected at service delivery level, and what minimum essential data should be forwarded for international statistical reporting. To address these issues, the WHO Regional Office for South-East Asia assists in strengthening national health information systems, and maintains and regularly updates a database on a set of core indicators of health and its determinants for all countries in the South-East Asia Region. These data are presented in a brochure accompanying this publication.

Quality of Care: what are effective policy options for governments in low- and middle-income countries to improve and regulate the quality of ambulatory care?
This policy brief aims to provide guidance for policy-makers in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) in the Asia Pacific region on actions that governments can take to improve and regulate quality of care in ambulatory care services. There is increasing evidence of the very poor quality of ambulatory care in LMICs. Current strategies to address quality of care in these countries such as accreditation have tended to focus on hospitals. But ambulatory care accounts for the largest share of out-of-pocket expenses in LMICs and is key to addressing the double burden of communicable and noncommunicable disease.
Diesel and Gasoline Engine Exhausts and some Nitroarenes

The scientific evidence was reviewed thoroughly by the Working Group and overall it was concluded that there was sufficient evidence in humans for the carcinogenicity of diesel exhaust. The Working Group found that diesel exhaust is a cause of lung cancer (sufficient evidence) and also noted a positive association (limited evidence) with an increased risk of bladder cancer (Group 1). The Working Group concluded that gasoline exhaust was possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B), a finding unchanged from the previous evaluation in 1989.
