Über diesen Titel
Provides an overview of the functions, organization and management of environmental health services in European countries. Intended to assist in the improvement or reform of existing services, the report draws on information collected from 27 countries to illustrate both the diversity of strategies being used to promote environmental health and the strengths and weaknesses of specific approaches. Throughout, particular attention is given to the major environmental problems faced by countries in central and eastern Europe.
The volume is the first in a new series of technical publications dealing with strategies for improving environmental health services in Europe. The book has seven chapters. The first, which considers why countries need environmental health services, looks at current concepts of environmental health, and traces the history of concern from the early 19th century to the present, about the links between environmental factors and public health. The chapter also outlines the objectives of environmental health services, describes the political factors that shape these objectives, and uses the example of poor housing to show how environmental conditions contribute to social problems. Chapter two considers the different ways that European countries set out strategies for dealing with environmental health concerns. Country examples are used to illustrate the procedures followed when formulating policies and setting priorities.
Other chapters discuss different options for implementing strategies and describe the various functions of environmental health services, including measures used to enforce controls. A chapter on capacity building looks at what countries do to secure sufficient financing, an adequate legal framework, suitably skilled personnel, and reliable information. The volume concludes with chapters on the evaluation of services and possible models for comparing services
