Excerpt
Introduction Following a visit by a delegation from the French ministry responsible for health to the WHO Regional Office for Europe in Copenhagen, it was decided to organize, in France, a meeting on the progress of the International Drinking Water Supply and Sanitation Decade, during which a number of specific issues would be studied. It was agreed between the French Government and the Regional Office that the meeting should be held at the International Water Centre in Nancy. At a separate ceremony presided over by Mr Girard, Director-General of Health, representing Mr Seguin, Minister of Social Affairs and Employment, and Mrs Barzach, Minister responsible for health and the family, the International Water Centre was designated as collaborating centre for water supply and sanitation. The meeting was attended by 15 representatives, who had the opportunity to describe the progress of the Decade, the policies applied and the results attained so Ear in their countries. The following points were discussed: - aims and methods of health action in the framework of the Decade, both on a routine basis and in emergencies (natural disasters, accidental pollution); - information needed for assessment of the Decade; - form of presentation of the information and significance of the data provided vis-a-vis the information system producing them; - essential information for making choices in respect of policy on quantitative and qualitative improvements. The tools needed to ensure a multidisciplinary approach to health policy on water supply and sanitation were stressed once again. The involvement of the community and all partners in the process requires an adequate knowledge of the situation and satisfactory exchange of information among the,partners. The very open discussions that took place, bringing together the views of the participants from countries whose problems were in some cases very diverse, led to a series of recommendations addressed both to international bodies and to governments.
