Improvements in health status are the fundamental goal of a health care system. However, many social and economic factors which are outside the realm of the health care system contribute to poor health. During the past ten years, CEE and Eurasia have endured social and economic hardships which have led to unhealthy lifestyles and more stressrelated conditions. As a result, life expectancy has declined in most countries in the region and chronic diseases are the primary cause of death and disability in the region. Over the same period, the HIV/AIDS pandemic has taken root in the region while much of the capacity for preventing, identifying and controlling the spread of infectious diseases has been lost due to the transition.

The first two panel sessions will address the measures underway to reduce the risk of HIV/AIDS. Preventing and controlling HIV/AIDS in high risk groups, particularly injecting drug users, will be discussed in the first session. In the second session, measures to establish an infrastructure to address the emerging threat of HIV/AIDS will be described. A range of strategies to build capacity for promoting public health through education, community-based organizations and national initiatives are discussed in the third session. The last two sessions are devoted to the important topic of health promotion and disease prevention. Both sessions begin with examples of comprehensive national initiatives of health promotion followed by discussions of preventive measures to protect women’s health in the fourth panel, and health promotion related to lifestyle changes in the final session.
