1.- 14th World Congress on Public Health

The Kolkata Call to Action

The 14th World Congress on Public Health on February 15, 2015 in Kolkata, India with delegates gathered from 70 countries around the globe called upon health care providers, government leaders, and all representatives of civil society to take urgent action to mitigate environmental conditions that are contributing to the deaths and diseases of millions of inhabitants of our small planet.

 

The delegates declared

 

The time for study and debate is past for the vast majority of the social, environmental and economic killers that stalk human kind. The time for action has arrived. As public health experts from all corners of the globe we declare that the evidence is clear.

 

Social, Economic and Environmental Determinants of Disease and Development

With the proximity of the 2015 UN General Assembly, it is essential to stress to the unfinished agenda and the progress and failures of the MDG. Political, economic, social and environmental development is itself a product of social equity. Social equity means improvement of quality of life in all life courses of all citizens. With all these concepts - political, economic, social and environmental equity - is Health. Health cannot and should not be purchased for the rich but rather a human right of all (As reflected in the Health-related Millennium Development Goals).

Without such a commitment disease will grow in prevalence and no one rich or poor will be without risk. The outbreak of Ebola in West Africa illustrates the problem. The disease spread so widely because of poverty. Poor community infrastructure such as clean water and sanitation, poor health infrastructure including facilities and adequate numbers of appropriately trained health and medical staff all increased the likelihood of the spread of disease globally.

Climate and Health

The profound threat to human health from global warming and resulting climate change is central to the challenges of this century. The human contribution to warming through energy generation from fossil fuels, and coal in particular, provide clear requirement to mitigate these effects and protect thousands of lives at risk as well from the air pollution inherent in these processes. These risks too fall unevenly on the poor within countries and poor nations globally. We must commit to sustainable and renewable energy technologies and not short term and potentially dangerous methods such as nuclear fission and hydraulic fracking.

Non-Communicable Disease and Its Causes

While infectious disease continue to capture the world’s attention it is the insidious rise of non-communicable diseases that form the basis of the biggest challenges in this next period. Priority must be given to foster structural changes in society aiming at more equal distribution of wealth and power among people in each country and among countries and regions worldwide as the root causes of NCD-related morbidity and mortality. Support must be given to stronger community action to influence exercise and lifestyle and to control tobacco, alcohol, obesity, poor dental health, chemical exposures and the occupational environment.

Universal health coverage

As the risks described above fall unevenly upon the poorest countries and peoples so does the lack of adequate access to medical care and least recognition in practice of health care as a human right. Attendees at the Congress re-affirm the Declarations of the prior Congresses in Beijing, Istanbul, and Addis Abba and issue this call to global action. Better analysis and study are always needed but it is time to “roll up our sleeves” and advocate for action to protect the public’s health. Specific activities will vary depending upon national or international settings but on return in three years the measure of the public’s health will be dependent upon our actions in these broad areas.

The Congress

February 2015 will long be remembered by the global Public Health community for the 14th World Congress on Public Health that took place at Kolkata, India. The many sessions and presentations, the luminaries who shared their knowledge and expertise, the presence of more than 1600 attendees from all over the world, the social and cultural events replete with traditional music and artistes and the flower-bedecked venue were some of the memorable aspects that ensured the success of the World Congress.

WFPHA and IPHA were the partnering associations for 14th WCPH and the event was organised by KW Conferences. The International Core Organising Committee, the Scientific committee and Abstract reviewers were from many different countries.

The scientific sessions, workshops, exhibition and other events were meaningful and created value for all attendees. There were 1660 registrations from 70 countries. There were 7 Plenary sessions including the Opening and Closing plenaries, 9 Thematic and 31 Concurrent sessions, 31 Free Paper sessions, 392 nposters, 2 satellite sessions and 6 pre-congress workshops. The ISMOPH satellite conference provided capacity-building workshops for 500 students and young professionals.

The exhibition had 25 organisations as exhibitors. 390 posters were displayed over 4 days. The Open Forum within the exhibition was an interactive area, a hub for film shows, skits, craft display, debates and panel discussions.

 

Panelists and guests at the Opening Ceremony

 

The 14th WCPH had a memorable Opening Ceremony with international luminaries gracing the dias. H E Kamalesh Sharma, Secretary General Commonwealth of Nations, was the Chief Guest while Poonam Khetrapal Singh, Regional Director WHO SEARO, was the Guest of Honour. Lamplighting is a haloed Indian tradition and this signified the auspicious start of the Congress. There were addresses by Mengistu Asnake, the WFPHA President, and the International Core Organising Committee Chairs James Chauvin and Dr Madhumita Dobe who welcomed the gathered experts and professionals from the global Public Health community. Mr C K Mishra, Additional Secretary, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India delivered the keynote address.

 

A dance performance added cultural beauty to the Opening Ceremony. The dignitaries then proceeded to the exhibition area where Poonam K Singh cut the ribbon to inaugurate the trade exposition.

 

Dance performance at the Opening Ceremony

 

The next four days had over 300 presentations and discussions where participants shared knowledge and information. There were social events as well where the attendees relaxed, networked and renewed friendships.

 

The Closing Ceremony on 15 February was the occasion for the Kolkata Call for Action. This was also the time to say farewell till the next World Congress in Melbourne in 2017. At the Closing Ceremony, WFPHA expressed gratitude for the significant support from the 42 supporting organisations. The principal sponsors and supporters were   WHO SEARO, BMGF, IDRC, UNFPA, UNICEF, PATH, JSI, Government of India, WHO Representative to India, Aetna and Unilever.. They brought in experts who greatly enriched the scientific value of the congress sessions. Government support from India, Brazil and Taiwan was significant with senior policy-planners from their Health Ministries attending the Congress.

WFPHA acknowledged the invaluable contribution by Dr Madhumita Dobe, Organizing Secretary who spearheaded the management of the event and had been instrumental in bringing the World Congress to India. The Professional Conference Organizers, KW Conferences were greatly appreciated for the well choreographed event – a memorable experience for all attendees.

ISMOPH Congress

The International Students’ Meet on Public Health (ISMOPH) is a satellite event of the World Congress on Public Health (WCPH). The ISMOPH 2015 was held in Kolkata, India on February 9 and 10, right before of the WCPH, and it was organized by the Student Assembly of Public Health, India (SAPHI) in association with the International Federation of Medical Student’s Association (IFMSA), African Public Health Students Association (AfPHSA) and American Public Health Association - Students Assembly.

 

The ISMOPH was held for the first time in Istanbul, Turkey, in 2009 in conjunction with the 12th World Congress on Public Health, aiming to be a truly global event that serves as a platform for international collaboration that brings together students from the health and medical sciences to study, strengthen, and advocate for global health equity, based on the realizations that health is a fundamental right and that a ‘public health approach’ is essential to conquering the vast global burden of disease.The ISMOPH 2015 once again, gathered international students from different disciplines of public health, including modern medicine, nursing, social sciences, veterinary sciences, environmental sciences, dentistry, alternative medicines and others.

 

For 2015, ISMOPH brought together students on a common platform to study, strengthen, and advocate for a “Healthy People, Healthy Environment”.The focus of this year’s meeting was not on a specific topic but on a variety of public health topics ranging from workshops on social determinants of health, disaster management to the concerns of geriatric population, mental health care, nutritional highlights including satellite sessions on important public health challenges and career marts, always highlighting the importance of the work of future professionals in the local and community level for the public health of our countries.ISMOPH, as an innovative global health initiative that is organized for students, young public health professionals and people from medical or health sciences by their peers all over the world, gathers the motivation of many young people to look together for the solutions of the biggest public health challenges of their countries. Together, students from different public health areas, backgrounds and experiences meet at ISMOPH to share, learn and discuss about Public Health and the different opportunities to change the reality that surrounds us.

9.- What's on


ASH UK’s petition campaign

Please support ASH UK’s petition campaign aimed at Imperial Tobacco to end their unfair contract with the Lao PDR government. Imperial Tobacco signed a 25-year contract (starting in 2001) with the Lao government to cap tax increases, meaning very cheap cigarettes in Laos for 25 years, until 2025. This enable Imperial to build its business by paying low excise tax rate of 15% of production cost instead of complying with the law by paying the excise tax rate of 60% of wholesale price. While this ensured Imperial’s profits grew, the Lao government lost about US$80m in taxes over the past 12 years. Almost 5,000 Lao people die from tobacco related diseases every year.

The petition calls on Imperial Tobacco to end this unfair contract that degrades public health and prevents the Lao PDR from fulfilling their obligations under the World Health Organization’s Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC). Imperial Tobacco has its annual shareholders meeting in the UK on 28 Jan where it will celebrate its enormous profits - Imperial made about US$1.8 billion in total profits last year.

 

Links to signing the petition and more information about Imperial Tobacco’s deal with the Lao PDR can be found here.  


Celebrating Divestment: Top Ten Stories That Inspire Change

On February 13-14, hundreds of events around the world called on institutions to divest from the top 200 fossil fuel companies. The movement highlights a conflict that most politicians are reluctant to address: if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, most known fossil fuel resources need to stay in the ground. Yet fossil fuel companies are extracting and selling their existing reserves and they are exploring ever more sensitive territory to find new ones, threatening the security of a safe planet and the health of its inhabitants.

In recent months, more than 180 universities, foundations, religious institutions, cities, and even a country have announced their intentions divest or freeze their fossil fuel investments in order to address climate change. In the spirit of Global Divestment Day, we’ve highlighted our picks for the top ten fossil fuel divestment and investment freezing-related stories over the past year or so.

Opening remarks by Mr. Michael Møller - Annual Civil Society Briefing

As we finalize this unprecedented range of new policy frameworks, we are also celebrating the 70th anniversary of the United Nations. This is at the same time the anniversary of the United Nations and civil society actors working together. Over the past seven decades, the United Nations system’s engagement with non-governmental organizations and civil society actors has undergone profound change, both in terms of numbers and variety of actors as well as depth of substantive issues and priorities. Without the tireless efforts and advocacy of NGOs, some parts of the United Nations might not even be in existence – like the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, for example. The United Nations system relies on the expertise and active involvement of civil society actors – and our policies and processes are the stronger for it.

In the context of the 70th anniversary, together with civil society partners, we plan to organize an event later this year to assess the relationship between United Nations and civil society, and to look ahead at how we can strengthen this partnership. This will be a good opportunity to exchange the experiences, practices and lessons learned of our engagement.

Give Civil Society a Say by Mr. Michael Møller

Disarmament is not just an aim in itself. It is also a means to bring greater stability and security to our world. It can provide a strong foundation for better development in challenged societies. It is

necessary to ensure everybody's right to live in peace. Civil society has to be part of that effort. It is time to give civil society a greater say.

The impact of the financial crisis on the health system and health in Portugal

This report was produced as part of a series of six country case studies and forms part of a larger study on the impact of the financial crisis since 2008–2009 on health systems in the European Region. The countries studied in depth are Estonia, Greece, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania and Portugal, which represent a selection of countries hit relatively hard by the global financial and economic

crisis. In-depth analysis of individual countries, led by authors from the country concerned, adds to understanding of both the impact of a deteriorating fiscal position and the policy measures put in place as a result. These case studies complement a broader analysis which summarizes official data sources and the results of a survey of key informants in countries of the WHO European Region; they will also be published as part of a two volume study conducted jointly by the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies and the WHO Regional Office for Europe.
