Tuberculosis and air travel : guidelines for prevention and control by World Health Organization( Book )
19 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and held by 287 libraries worldwide
The revised International Health Regulations, adopted in 2005, provide a legal framework for a more effective coordinated international response to emergencies caused by outbreaks of infectious diseases. A number of provisions are relevant to the detection and control of TB during air travel, strengthening the authority of WHO and of national public health authorities in this domain. Because of these important developments since the original guidelines were issued in 1998, WHO has prepared this revised version to take account of current public health risks that may arise during air travel and new approaches to international collaboration in dealing with them. The guidelines were developed with the collaboration of international experts in air travel medicine and other authorities. Implementing the recommendations will help to reduce the spread of dangerous pathogens across the globe and decrease the risk of infection among individual travellers.--Publisher's description

Mental health : new understanding, new hope by World Health Organization( Book )
10 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 162 libraries worldwide
An estimated 450 million people suffer from mental or neurological disorders or from psychosocial problems such as those related to alcohol and drug abuse. Many of them suffer silently. Many suffer alone. Many never receive treatment of any kind. Between the suffering and the prospect of care stand the barriers of stigma, prejudice, shame and exclusion. In devoting "The World Health Report 2001" to mental health, WHO is making one clear, emphatic statement. Mental health - neglected for far too long - is crucial to the overall well-being of individuals, societies and countries and must be universally regarded in a new light.; This book is a landmark report that aims to raise professional and public awareness of the real burden of mental and neurological disorders and the cost in human, social and economic terms. It aims to dismantle many of those barriers which prevent millions of sufferers from receiving the treatment they need and deserve.; The report comes at a critical time for the mental health of the world. One person in every four will be affected by a mental disorder at some stage of life. Major depression already ranks fourth in the leading ten causes of the global burden of disease. If projections are correct, within the next 20 years it will have risen to second place. Globally, 70 million people suffer from alcohol dependency. About 50 million have epilepsy; another 24 million have schizophrenia. Between ten and 20 million people attempt suicide every year. One million of them - including many who are very young - do kill themselves
