FAO, WHO urge vigilance in light of recent food scares

first_img See also: While the FAO and WHO pointed to two recent food safety incidents that involved food from China—the chemical melamine in animal and fish feed and unauthorized veterinary drugs in seafood imports—they also highlighted food safety gaps in developed countries. Jul 20, 2007 (CIDRAP News) – The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO) yesterday urged all countries to strengthen their food safety systems, a day after President Bush issued an executive order establishing a group to examine the safety of imported food and other goods. However, developed countries often have similarly fragmented food safety systems that do not cover primary production where many food safety problems originate, they said. For example, the spread of new Salmonella strains in poultry in recent years originated in developed countries and spread globally. Jul 19 FAO/WHO press release “Food safety is an issue for every country and ultimately every food consumer,” said Jorgen Schlundt, director of the WHO’s department of food safety, zoonoses, and foodborne diseases, in the statement. “All countries can benefit from taking stronger measures to fill food safety gaps in the sometimes considerable journey food takes from the farm to the table.” The text of the executive order, posted on the White House Web site, says the group’s mission is to review current procedures that are intended to ensure the safety of imported products, assess the level of cooperation with foreign governments and manufacturers about their inspection and certification procedures, and consider whether changes are needed. World Trade Organization rules require developed countries to help developing countries that export food achieve high levels of food safety needed for international trade, the organizations said. The organizations, in a press release today, said in the last 12 months they have investigated an average of 200 food safety incidents per month. Bush also asked the working group to identify additional measures US importers can take to enhance import safety and identify best practices for selecting foreign manufacturers, inspecting foreign production facilities, and inspecting the goods before distribution in the United States. Food production systems in developing countries face steep challenges, such as population growth, intensification and industrialization of food and agricultural production, sanitary conditions, and weak public infrastructure, the FAO and WHO said. Food safety legislation in those countries is often incomplete and not consistent with international regulations, and laboratories lack essential equipment and supplies. In a related development, President Bush yesterday issued an executive order establishing an interagency working group to promote the safety of products imported into the United States. The group will be chaired by the secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and membership will include other cabinet secretaries or their designates, as well as representatives from government budget, trade, environment, and consumer protection agencies.

Indonesia details reasons for withholding H5N1 viruses

first_imgJul 15, 2008 (CIDRAP News) – In a recent medical journal article, Indonesian officials detailed the rationale for their refusal to share H5N1 influenza virus samples with the World Health Organization (WHO), asserting that it was in part a response to violations of the WHO’s own guidelines by scientists and laboratories.A key part of the Indonesian argument is that the WHO issued a statement in March 2005 that its reference labs should not distribute biological specimens to other organizations without permission from the country that supplied them. The report also maintains that withholding the viruses is not a violation of the International Health Regulations (IHR).The report, authored by four Indonesian scientists and officials, including Health Minister Siti Fadilah Supari, was published in the June issue of Annals Academy of Medicine Singapore.The article gives the Indonesian version of the sequence of events leading to the government’s decision in January 2007 to stop sending H5N1 viruses to the WHO’s reference labs. The essential reason was, and remains, the concern that samples provided freely by developing countries are used by companies in wealthy countries to develop vaccines and other products that the developing countries can’t afford. Indonesia wants a guarantee that it will share in the benefits derived from the isolates it provides.”If the world continues to operate in this way, the discrepancies will become wider and wider,” the article says. “The poor will become poorer and the richer become richer. It is the responsibility of all nations to change this situation.”Because scientists need H5N1 isolates to track the virus’s evolution, develop vaccines and diagnostics, and monitor drug resistance, Indonesia’s action generated international concern. The move disrupted a 50-year-old tradition of free sharing of influenza viruses through the WHO.WHO officials declined to comment specifically on the Indonesian report, noting that a series of international meetings to resolve the virus-sharing issue is continuing.”In the meantime, individual countries like Indonesia are free to try and influence other countries,” WHO spokeswoman Sari Setiogi told CIDRAP News by e-mail. “As secretariat, the WHO is more of a referee in this process but is fully supportive of an approach that is feasible, transparent and equitable and that will continue to provide protection and security for all countries.”The Indonesian report also includes a profile of the human H5N1 cases in Indonesia through the end of 2007, noting, among other things, that about a quarter of the 116 cases occurred in 10 clusters of blood relatives.What led to a ‘drastic decision’Indonesia’s first human H5N1 cases were identified in July 2005. From then until the end of 2006, the government sent all clinical specimens to two labs in the WHO’s influenza surveillance network (the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC] and Hong Kong University) for confirmation and risk assessment, the report says. In January 2007 the government made the “drastic decision” to withhold the specimens.Incidents that offended Indonesia began in April 2006, the report says. Scientists at international meetings started reporting results of analyses of H5N1 viruses from Indonesia, without first getting permission from, or even notifying, Indonesia. In other cases, foreign scientists who studied Indonesian viruses sent to the WHO offered to include Indonesian experts and officials as coauthors, but only “at a very late stage of the manuscript writing,” according to the journal article.These “unethical practices” contravened the WHO guidance issued in March 2005 concerning the timely sharing of viruses with pandemic potential, the article says.This guidance, according to the report, states, “The designated WHO Reference Laboratories will seek permission from the originating country/laboratory to coauthor and/or publish results obtained from the analyses of relevant viruses/samples.” It also says, “There will be no further distribution of viruses/specimens outside the network of WHO Reference Laboratories without permission from the originating country/laboratory.”The source listed for the guidance is an online document that was accessed in March 2007 but, as the footnote says, is no longer available online. (The url listed for the document elicits only the message “This page is not available in English.”)Another episode that played a role was the emergence in May 2006 of Indonesia’s largest H5N1 case cluster—one probable and seven confirmed cases, all in blood relatives, seven of them fatal. The cluster raised fears that a pandemic was beginning. One result was that Indonesia was criticized for releasing genetic data only to a small network of researchers linked to the WHO and the CDC, the Indonesian authors wrote.In response to this “unfair” criticism, Indonesia decided that all its H5N1 virus sequence data at the CDC and Hong Kong University should be deposited in GenBank, a public database. But at the same time, the government decided to let its own labs confirm human H5N1 cases and not send samples to WHO labs for case confirmation anymore. However, officials elected to continue sending samples to the CDC for risk assessment and generation of seed viruses for vaccine production, the report explains.Australian company’s plan was pivotalThen in late 2006 a journalist confirmed to Indonesian officials that an Australian company planned to develop an H5N1 vaccine from a virus that Indonesia had provided to the WHO network. This plan, the article says, “was not only in violation (again) of the WHO guidance for virus sharing (March 2005) but also . . . revealed the unfairness and inequities of the global system.”The Indonesian authors maintain that their policy is not a violation of the International Health Regulations (IHR) as revised in 2005. The regulations do not “literally or specifically” require countries to share biological samples related to potential public health emergencies, they argue. In their view, the IHR can be interpreted as requiring only the sharing of public health information, not biological materials.Their interpretation also holds that countries have “sovereign control” over their biological resources, in keeping with the Convention on Biological Diversity, an international treaty adopted in 1992. “Hence, countries have the right and authority to decide whether to share their specimens with the WHO system or not, depending on their own judgment,” the report says.The report also traces the series of meetings convened by the WHO to try to resolve the virus-sharing issue. At a major meeting in November 2007, participants failed to reach a solution. But according to the Indonesian authors, the meeting brought an acknowledgement of a “breakdown of trust” in the global flu surveillance system and thereby “laid the foundation for a fundamental and significant change to the existing system.”Sedyaningsih ER, Isfandari S, Soendoro T, et al.

Blue Lagoon also sponsors the Sea Star Festival this year

first_imgPlava Laguna will once again be a partner of the Sea Star Festival, the Croatian edition of the EXIT festival.A logical and smart move by the Blue Lagoon, because we all know that the motive for coming in the pre- and post-season is not the sun and the sea, but the motive for coming is quality content. And the confirmation of the successful concept came from the Netherlands, where EXIT was officially declared the best festival in Europe.Awards and various titles are certainly good for branding and as a “proof of concept”, but the most important thing is the following – generating tourist arrivals and tourist spending in the pre-season. And this is where the Sea Star Festival proved that quality content is king. “We are immensely glad that EXIT was named the best festival in Europe. We are very proud to have played one of the key roles in bringing Sea Star to Croatia, ie to Umag. It’s nice to be a part of something so big, and I believe the festival will be even better this year with a rich line-up in preparation. The Exit Award is also a recognition for Sea Star, which has achieved fantastic success in entering the top 10 European festivals in its category after the first edition.”, Said Ronald Korotaj, a member of the Board of the Blue Lagoon.Certainly a smart move by Plava Laguna, because the results of the research conducted by the regional research center “TIM” from Novi Sad, confirmed that the premiere edition of the Sea Star Festival in Umag last year contributed to the Croatian tourist economy. generated tourist spending of more than 60 million. According to the official data of the Tourist Board of the City of Umag, all accommodation capacities in the city and surrounding places were filled and in relation to the pre-festival weekend in Umag and its surroundings, it was recorded attendance growth of as much as 220 percent.Also, the Festival was visited by more than 25 fans from May 28 to 50.000, and as many as 93% of them came from outside Umag, and the host city in hospitality is followed by the Istrian County, which was visited by as many as 85% of guests from abroad. The survey also found that each of these visitors spent an average of 292 euros during the festival, according to organizers, which was conducted on a representative sample of visitors with purchased tickets.Smart enough, and that is another confirmation of the hypothesis that investing in events is not a cost, but an investment.EXIT is officially the best festival in Europe, it was announced at the European Festival Awards in the NetherlandsEXIT won in the main category in a competition of a staggering 350 festivals from more than 35 countries, with over a million audience votes and the opinion of an expert jury made up of the world’s most eminent music industry people. Exit festivals were in the finals in as many as six categories, and EXIT itself in a record three categories, including winning the main prize for the best major European festival, and the best festival organizer in Europe and the ‘Take a Stand’ award for social activism!With this, EXIT Summer of Love 2017, which consisted of 4 festivals in Novi Sad, Umag, Budva and Timisoara, with over 350.000 visitors, was inscribed in golden letters in the world history of the festival. This year’s Sea Star 2018 will be held from 24 to 27 May in Umag’s Stella Maris.Related news: SEA STAR FESTIVAL WITH A NEW PARTNERSHIP UNTIL THE INTRODUCTION OF ADDED VALUE FOR VISITORSlast_img read more

first_img Tagseizgindexovijob In April 2018, OVI recorded a growth of 57,6 percent compared to the same month last year, which indicates a strong increase in demand for labor on an annual basisCompared to the previous month, seasonally adjusted index values ​​offer the same conclusion as the seasonally adjusted index rose 7,7 percent in April, the fourth largest increase in 12 months. These positive trends, which come as an announcement of the tourist season, are visible throughout Croatia, the report points out.The announcement of a more successful season is visible from the increase in demand for occupations in the service sector, such as chefs, waiters and salespeople, for which demand, compared to April 2017, increased by more than 50 percent. In the context of the type of contract linked to labor demand, the largest increase was observed in student and seasonal contracts, which increased by 82,7 percent compared to April last year, followed by fixed-term and indefinite contracts with an increase of 62,1 and 47,4 percent, while the number of vacancies related to vocational training without employment increased by 30,7 percent compared to April 2017.Source: Faculty of Economics, Zagreb Online Vacancy Index (OVI) The monthly index of online job vacancies was developed at the Institute of Economics, Zagreb in cooperation with the MojPosao portal. The purpose of the index is to provide timely information on the current state of labor demand. The OVI index is created by simply counting the number of unique new ads whose application deadlines end in the month for which the index is calculated. Since ads published through only one portal are taken, the number of ads is expressed as an index (base year is 2015).The index is interpreted as meaning that values ​​greater than 100 represent an increase compared to 2015, and values ​​less than 100 decrease compared to the base year. The index was seasonally adjusted by the X-12-ARIMA method.center_img Sharelast_img read more
