The increase in refugees and other migrants from low-income and middle-income countries (LMICs) to the European Union/European Economic Area (EU/EEA) since 20111 has made the development of infectious disease guidance a public health priority for EU/EEA Member States. High mobility, poor living conditions, barriers to accessing healthcare and potential public health risks for newly arriving migrant populations and host populations are leading public health concerns. As a result, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) called for evidence-based guidance to support tailored public health approaches to health assessment (voluntary screening) and prevention (vaccination) among newly arrived migrants. This guidance aims to support public health and health system professionals to screen and treat international migrants.2. Migrant populations include economic migrants, refugees, asylum seekers and irregular migrants who may have been forced to flee conflict, natural disasters or ...

The Dublin regulation, allocating asylum claims to the first port of call on a migrants journey, is unfit for purpose. The European Parliament has come to a shared position that guarantees fair treatment of refugees and shared responsibility in the EU. Now its up to member states to do their share, writes Cornelia Ernst.. Dr. Cornelia Ernst is an MEP for the German party DIE LINKE since 2009. She is a spokesperson for her parliamentary delegation and a member of the LIBE committee of the European Parliament. In preparing the new Dublin reform, Ernst was the shadow rapporteur for the left-wing group in the European Parliament GUE/NGL.. Thirty-seven years ago, twelve EU member states, including Germany, signed a treaty under international law to regulate which EU member state would be responsible for examining an asylum application. The agreement was named after the place of its signature, Dublin.. The rules entered into force in 1997 and since then, the EU member state that was first entered by ...
Bellona Europa Director Jonas Helseth and BRALs Lievin Chemin, European Parliament, 23 Nov 2017 Credit: Bellona Europa These fuels use five times more electricity than an electric car to travel the same distance, and have all the same qualities as fossil fuels, such as CO2 and air polluting NOx and PM. Labelling synthetic fuels as renewable and including them in the RED poses a direct threat to electro-mobility uptake on the continent, warned Helseth.. Another key piece of legislation is the currently reformed Clean Vehicles Directive, which offers a once-in-a-decade opportunity to enforce an effective tool for the public procurement of clean transport fleets. In the coming months, discussions on this piece of legislation will be getting underway in the European Parliament and EU Member States. When it comes to the implementation of the directives requirements, however, it comes down to cities and public authorities.. Brussels needs to step up action The debate thus provided a zoom into ...

The following is a guest blog post from Andrea Corazza, European Advocacy Officer, Global Health Advocates, and was originally published on End the Neglect.*. Through its policies, legislation and bilateral/regional trade agreements, the European Union (EU) has a major impact on global health both in terms of research and development (R&D) of new and improved medicines for Poverty-Related and Neglected Diseases[1] (PRNDs) and their accessibility to populations in developing countries.. To ensure that EU policies deliver a coherent, comprehensive and pro-active response to address these issues, Global Health Advocates and the Médecins Sans Frontières Access Campaign created the European Parliament Working Group on Innovation, Access to Medicines and Poverty-Related Diseases together with Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) back in 2009.. This Working Group provides a platform to ensure that global health issues remain high on the EU agenda and to advocate for the adoption of EU policies ...

Downloadable! Agri-environmental schemes (AES) of the European Union are the most important measure in terms of share on the public budget for Rural Development. Although the farmers uptake of AES is expected to strongly impact even farmers behavior, in the literature the attempts to investigate this impact are scarce. Our study applies a difference-in-differences propensity score matching estimator in order to perform a comparative analyses of the effects of AE measures on farmers practises and economic performances across five EU Member States. Results show differences in the AES effects across country as well as differences across farmers of the same country according to what extent the farm income is dependent on the AE payment. Our analyses suggests that the AE payment in Spain is not enough to compensate the large drop of the per hectare income after participation and the AE uptake does not seem to promote effectively environmental-friendly farm practises. In France and Italy the sustainable

Downloadable! The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the competitive performance of different European countries at sector level in the intra-EU market from 1995 to 2011, comparing food industry and agricultural sector. In particular, we aim to assess the effect of the EU enlargement (first period) and the economic crisis (second period) on the competitiveness of EU countries. The data come from the Eurostat database of international trade. The competitive performance of EU countries is measured through several trade indices, such as Export and Import Market Share, Revealed Comparative Advantage, Net Export Index, and Vollrath indices, analysing their values over the last fifteen years. Our analysis showed that, in the EU countries, agriculture and food industry do not reveal strong differences in competitive performance during the last fifteen years. Among big countries, France and Spain showed a continuous worsening competitive performance. A similar trend is found for Belgium. On the contrary, the

Individuals with latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI) are the reservoir of Mycobacterium tuberculosis in a population and as long as this reservoir exists, elimination of tuberculosis (TB) will not be feasible. In 2013, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) started an assessment of benefits and risks of introducing programmatic LTBI control, with the aim of providing guidance on how to incorporate LTBI control into national TB strategies in European Union/European Economic Area (EU/EEA) Member States and candidate countries. In a first step, experts from the Member States, candidate countries, and international and national organisations were consulted on the components of programmatic LTBI control that should be considered and evaluated in literature reviews, mathematical models and cost-effectiveness studies. This was done through a questionnaire and two interactive discussion rounds. The main components identified were identification and targeting of risk groups, determinants
Tuberculosis (TB) is decreasing in the European Union/European Economic Area (EU/EEA), but remains a significant public health problem. Although pulmonary TB accounts for the majority of the cases and is the main transmissible form of the disease, extrapulmonary TB also contributes to the burden of disease and does not receive specific attention in international control strategies. We performed a descriptive analysis to assess the burden and trends of extrapulmonary TB in EU/EEA countries. During 2002-11, 167,652 cases of extrapulmonary TB were reported by the 30 Member States. Extrapulmonary TB accounted for 19.3% of all notified cases, ranging from 5.8% to 44.4% among the Member States. Overall, TB notification rates decreased in 2002-11 due to a decrease in pulmonary TB. Notification rates of extrapulmonary TB remained stable at 3.4 per 100,000 in 2002 and 3.2 per 100,000 in 2011. Thus the proportion of extrapulmonary TB increased from 16.4% in 2002 to 22.4% in 2011. Of all extrapulmonary TB cases

The good news about tuberculosis (TB) is that in the 29 reporting European Union/European Economic Area countries the number of incident TB cases is falling, with an average annual decline of 6% since 2011 [1]. The bad news is that, however you look at it, multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB) and extensively drug-resistant TB (XDR-TB) remain a major clinical and public health problem worldwide, particularly in former Soviet Union countries and Central Asia [2-4]. Less than a quarter of the total estimated MDR-TB cases were actually diagnosed in 2012 [2], with dramatic consequences from an individual and a community perspective (i.e. increased morbidity, mortality and drug-resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis transmission). It was estimated that 450 000 incident patients developed MDR-TB and 170 000 died from MDR-TB. More than half of such cases die, fail or stop taking treatment and only one in three cases in reporting countries completes the long treatment course (,20 months). The treatment success ...
EU Directive 2010/63/EU is the European Union (EU) legislation on the protection of animals used for scientific purposes and is one of the most stringent ethical and welfare standards worldwide. The Directive repealed EU Directive 86/609/EEC. It became formally applied across the EU on January 1, 2013. It protects live non-human vertebrates including independently feeding larval forms and foetal forms of mammals from the last third of their normal development, and live cephalopods. The Directive is based on the Council of Europe Convention for the Protection of Vertebrate Animals used for Experimental and other Scientific Purposes (ETS123) established in 1986. This Convention applies to a wider Europe, beyond just the EU. The Directive repealed EU Directive 86/609/EEC. It took nearly two years to revise, beginning in November 2008. It was finalised and signed on September 22, 2010, coming into force on November 9, 2010. Member States were then allowed one year to transpose it into their own ...

Under the Treaty of Lisbon, the Netherlands was to get a 26th seat in the European Parliament. Because this treaty had not yet been ratified by all member states at the time of the elections, this seat could not be given to a party at that time. The State Secretary for the Interior, Ank Bijleveld-Schouten, made a proposal for allocating it if the Lisbon treaty were to be ratified by all member states, but this had not been accepted by parliament at the time of the election. According to the proposal made by the government, the seat would be awarded to the Party for Freedom. The Party for the Animals contested this proposal, claiming that the minister ignored part of the Electoral Councils opinion. They raised their objection after the official results came in. Under the Electoral Councils opinion, the Party for the Animals should have gained the seat.[4]. Several parties in the States-General had already stated that this changed the election rules after the elections, and, if the rules were to ...

If the United Kingdom exits the European Union without an agreement in place that addresses the status of UK legal professionals, UK solicitors and barristers will essentially be treated as third-country lawyers within the European Union. The practice rights of both solicitors and barristers will be affected, but as in-house counsel have greater dealings with solicitors, this resource will focus on them. Currently, UK solicitors and their firms can establish themselves permanently in other EU member states on the basis of their UK license. They can also provide services on a temporary basis in another member state. While serving clients in another member state, they can advise on UK law, EU law and international law, and subject to certain restrictions, the law of the member state. Without an agreement in place that addresses the continued practice rights of UK solicitors, the ability of UK solicitors to provide legal services in other EU member states will be subject to that particular member ...
Abolition of duty free goods within the EU: On 30 June 1999, the sale of duty-free alcohol and tobacco at airports and at sea was abolished in all of the original 15 EU member states. Of the 10 new member states that joined the EU on 1 May 2004, these rules already apply to Cyprus and Malta. There are transitional rules in place for visitors returning to one of the original 15 EU countries from one of the other new EU countries. But for the original 15, plus Cyprus and Malta, there are now no limits imposed on importing tobacco and alcohol products from one EU country to another (with the exceptions of Denmark, Finland and Sweden, where limits are imposed). Travellers should note that they may be required to prove at customs that the goods purchased are for personal use only. ...

EU-wide, there is a lack of data on manifestations of discrimination, racism, and related intolerances. Where data has been collected, the divergent end-purposes and methodologies mean that it is not possible to have an overview of the situation at the EU level, and comparisons between EU Member States are difficult. The survey responds to calls for better data on the situation of immigrants and ethnic minorities.. The survey results aim to provide useful comparable data on the actual impact on the ground of EU and national anti-discrimination and equality legislation and policies. This can guide policy makers in developing more targeted legal and policy responses. Survey data on racism and hate crime could provide evidence as to the need to implement EU law and develop effective measures to combat these phenomena. It can also support civil society organisations in their advocacy work. The data gathered with regards to Roma will support the European Commission in its annual reporting, as well as ...

Following the suspected case of Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) in a goat in France, which was subsequently confirmed*, the European Commission requested that EFSA carry out a quantitative risk assessment on the risks posed to humans from goat meat and goat meat products. In a statement published on 28 January 2005**, the Scientific Panel on Biological Hazards (BIOHAZ) of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) indicated that important information gaps remained related to the quantification of risks to human health associated with consumption of goat meat should BSE be present in the goat population. In its opinion published today, the BIOHAZ Panel concludes that the likely prevalence of BSE in the wider EU goat population is very low, based on results of ongoing and also recently increased surveillance of the goat population put in place by the European Commission*** and on other data available to date. Owing to a lack of appropriate data required to quantify the risk of BSE in goats, ...
To the Editor:. In May 2016, the World Health Organization (WHO) updated its treatment guidelines for drug-resistant tuberculosis (TB) and included a recommendation for the use of the shorter multidrug-resistant (MDR) TB regimen [1]. The WHO update is based on information provided by observational studies coordinated by the International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease, Médecins sans Frontières and the Damien Foundation which showed that the shorter treatment regimen resulted in a higher likelihood of treatment success compared to the longer conventional treatment in the study settings [2-5]. The shorter MDR-TB regimen consists of a standardised treatment course lasting 9-12 months and includes kanamycin, moxifloxacin, prothionamide, clofazimine, pyrazinamide, isoniazid and ethambutol. It is recommended for patients with rifampicin-resistant (RR) or MDR-TB (cases with TB bacilli resistant to at least isoniazid and rifampicin) who have not been treated previously with second-line ...
More than 97% of European food products contain pesticide residues, according to analyses carried out by the EUs national authorities. EURACTIVs partner Journal de lEnvironnement reports.. The European Food Safety Authoritys (EFSA) annual compilation of results from studies across the EU on the presence of pesticides in food products held no surprises.

This resource provides information on data sources and methods used for the Status report on alcohol consumption, harm and policy responses in 30 European countries 2019.. Per capita alcohol consumption in the WHO European Region, including the European Union (EU), is the highest in the world, which results in proportionally higher levels of burden of disease attributable to alcohol use compared to other regions.. While there have been welcome improvements in terms of overall mortality and alcohol-attributable mortality in EU+ countries (EU Member States, Norway and Switzerland), there was no statistically significant decline in total alcohol per capita consumption between 2010 and 2016 and the observed decreases in heavy episodic drinking seem to have come to a halt. Assessment of alcohol policies in the 10 areas defined in the European action plan to reduce the harmful use of alcohol 2012−2020 revealed huge variability across the countries, including the implementation of the three WHO best ...
Pharmacia & Upjohn Has Exclusive Rights in Europe. Foster City, CA -- May 1, 1997. Gilead Sciences, Inc. (NASDAQ:GILD) announced today that it has received marketing authorization for VISTIDE (cidofovir injection) from the European Commission (EC). This authorization allows the product to be marketed in all 15 countries of the European Union as an intravenous treatment for cytomegalovirus (CMV) retinitis in patients with AIDS.

The CHMP positive opinion is based on data from the Phase III PASPORT-CUSHINGS (PASireotide ...
The European Union (EU) is a unique form of international organization created by treaty but exhibiting characteristics of an embryonic federation. It is based on amendments to the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC) Treaty of 1951 (Treaty of Paris), the European Economic Community (EEC) Treaty of 1957 ( first Treaty of Rome), and the European Atomic Energy Community (EURATOM) Treaty of 1957. The name EU derives from the Treaty on European Union (TEU) of 1992, better known as the Maastricht Treaty. For this purpose, the EU may be considered synonymous with the former terms EEC and EC (European Community). Since 1995, the EU includes fifteen members: France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, The Netherlands, Luxembourg, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Greece, Spain, Portugal, Denmark, Austria, Sweden, and Finland.. Among the most important purposes of the original EEC Treaty were the creation of a Common Market and an increase in economic integration among the Member States. Economic integration was ...

The protection of individuals in relation to the processing of their personal data is a European fundamental right laid down in the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union and the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union. Businesses that want to process personal data of EU residents must therefore respect strict rules and conditions.. These rules and conditions are now predominantly laid down in the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The GDPR replaces the EUs 20-years-old Data Protection Directive (95/46/EC) and the 28 national laws of the EU Member States that implemented this Directive.. The aim of the GDPR is to provide a uniform law that strengthens the rights of individuals with regard to the processing of their personal data, while at the same time facilitating the free flow of data in the digital single market and reducing the administrative burden for businesses.. ...

WORK migration is not an immediate threat for Slovakia, unlike in countries of western Europe, where some voters and politicians perceive it that way. Thus, if radical and extremist forces get their say in the European Parliament (EP) elections, it will be due to the low voter turnout, for which Slovakia is notorious among EU member states. The Slovak Spectator discussed this and other EP-related issues with Vladimír Bilčík, a senior researcher with the Slovak Foreign Policy Association (SFPA) think tank.
The European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) supports European policy on rural development. To this end, it finances rural development programmes across the Member States and the regions of the Union. Programmes are designed in cooperation between the European Commission and the Member States, taking into account the strategic guidelines for rural development policy adopted by the Council and the priorities laid down by national strategy plans.. In the 2014-20 programming period, for the first time, the EAFRD is specifically included in the policy framework of the European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) and subject to the Common Provisions Regulation (1303/2013).. For the 2014-20 programming period, the Fund focuses on three main objectives:. • fostering the competitiveness of agriculture. • ensuring the sustainable management of natural resources, and climate action. • achieving a balanced territorial development of rural economies and communities including the ...
TAFTA faces political, economic, and cultural battles before it will be passed. Both sides will need approval of domestic legislatures. The EU will need the backing of all 27 national assemblies to pass TAFTA. The agreement will need to be ratified by EU member states as well as by the European Parliament (2015 target date for EU-US trade deal). In the United States, analysts recommend that the president pursues trade promotion authority (TPA), which will allow an up or down vote by Congress with no amendments or filibuster. TPA was granted to the President continuously from 1975 and 1994 and from 2002-2007 (Brookings, 2013). TPA would help speed up the Congressional approval of TAFTA and provide political cover to those who need it.. A Financial Times blog (Bintliff, 2013) outlined the major sticking points for both sides. Many of these points relate to restrictions on phytosanitary rules. Europe requires labeling of genetically modified crops, the U.S. does not. Europe bans hormone-treated ...
Information about Body / Skin Creams made in European Union - country of origin, manufacturing locations, manufacturer, brand, category, part number.
The European Commission has granted Merck and Pfizer Inc. (PFE) authorization to market a treatment for patients that suffer from metastatic Merel cell carcinoma. The monotherapy treatment, Bavencio, is offered to treat an aggressive and rare form of skin cancer.. Bavencio is able to be marketed in 28 countries in the Eurozone, including Iceland, Norway, and Liechtenstein. The treatment is expected to launch as early as October in Germany and the United Kingdom. Commercial availability of Bavencio is expected to come in the next few months.. The ECs decision is significant for BAVENCIO and more importantly, for European patients living with this very challenging skin cancer, said Luciano Rossetti, M.D. of Merck.. The treatment was also approved in the United States earlier in the year. The companys goal is to make the drug available worldwide. The company estimates that 2,500 patients in the European Union are diagnosed with Merel cell carcinoma each year.. The survival rate is slim, with ...
At the same time, the Parliament, which currently has an advisory role on EU tax matters, adopted a strong and progressive report calling for the EU to get rid of tax policies that have negative impacts on gender equality.. Tove Maria Ryding, Tax Coordinator at the European Network on Debt and Development (Eurodad), said:. Its very true that the EUs decision making on tax has so far been too ineffective and too unambitious. As the Commission also highlights, this is particularly problematic given that our societies are currently losing billions of Euros to large-scale international tax dodging.. We warmly welcome the recognition that the European Parliament needs to play an active role in EU decision making on tax. It is elected by EU citizens, and thus it can bring more legitimacy to decision making on tax. Weve also repeatedly seen that the Parliament is very attentive to the public call for action, transparency and justice on tax matters. The latest example came today, when the ...

Under EU legislation, food additives must be authorised before they can be used in foods.. The authorisation procedure starts with submission of a formal request to the European Commission consisting of an application dossier on the substance, containing scientific data on its proposed uses and use levels. The Commission then sends the dossier to EFSA and requests it to evaluate the safety of the substance for its intended uses. The European Commission decides whether to authorise the substance based on EFSAs safety assessment. Authorisation of proposed new uses of existing food additives follows the same procedure.. Once authorised, these substances are included in the EU list of permitted food additives laid down in Regulation EC 1333/2008, which also specifies their conditions of use. Authorised food additives must also comply with approved purity criteria laid down in Regulation EU 231/2012.. In December 2008, existing legislation was consolidated into four simplified regulations covering ...
From the FFII press release EU Council Compromising on Unlimited Patentability: The Council of the Ministers of the European Union, currently presided by Ireland, is circulating a Working Paper with counter-proposals to the European Parliaments amendments. In contrast to the European Parliaments version, the Council version allows unlimited patentability and patent enforcability. Under the Council version, computer-implemented algorithms and business methods, as have been granted in large numbers by the European Patent Office against the letter and spirit of the written law, are by default patentable inventions. Publication of a description of a patented idea on a web server in formal language constitutes a patent infringment, and use of patented protocols and file formats for the purpose of interoperation is not allowed. This proposal was prepared behind closed doors by the Councils Patent Working Party, a group of patent administrators who run the European Patent Office. The Patent ...

Europes far-right, xenophobic and extremist parties crossed a new threshold yesterday, winning more speaking time, money, and political influence in the European Parliament than ever before.. Claiming the backing of 23 million Europeans, ultra-nationalists secured enough MEPs to make a formal political grouping, underlining the growing challenge posed by the far right across the continent. For the first time since the Second World War a series of elections has swept nationalistic, far-right parties into office in municipal, regional, national and European parliament elections. The admission of Romania and Bulgaria in January of this year brought in enough far-right MEPs to form a bloc.. Mainstream politicians have been struggling for years to contain the threat from hardline nationalists and extremists who have entered coalitions or supported ruling governments in countries such as Austria, Denmark, Poland and Slovakia.. Amid formal protests and jeers in the Strasbourg Parliament, 20 MEPs ...
Concerns raised over consumer privacy and intellectual property rights as ACTA, the global anti-counterfeiting agreement, moves closer to becoming law. [...]. [...] according to La Quadrature du Net, although the signing of ACTA by EU member states is highly symbolic it is not the end of the road.. This citizen advocacy group said people can still challenge the agreement before the final vote in the EU Parliament; which cannot happen before June.. Jérémie Zimmermann, spokesperson for the organisation said: In the last few days, we have seen encouraging protests by Polish and other EU citizens, who are rightly concerned with the effect of ACTA on freedom of expression, access to medicines, but also access to culture and knowledge.
