In the WHO European Region, millions of people do not have access to the right health care services at the right time and in the right place. Health systems looking to meet this challenge are strained by the growing burden of noncommunicable diseases, the re-emergence of several communicable diseases and the fact that people are living longer and with chronic conditions. In this environment, there is a clear need for health services delivery that is proactive rather than reactive; comprehensive and continuous rather than episodic and disease-specific; and founded on lasting patient–provider relationships rather than incidental, provider-led care.
At the 66th session of the WHO Regional Committee for Europe, countries of the Region took an important step towards transforming health services delivery and strengthening people-centred health systems – one of 4 priorities of the Health 2020 policy framework – by unanimously endorsing the European Framework for Action on Integrated Health Services Delivery (EFFA IHSD).

29 November 2016 – In advance of World AIDS Day, WHO has released new guidelines on HIV self-testing to improve access to and uptake of HIV diagnosis. According to a new WHO progress report lack of an HIV diagnosis is a major obstacle to implementing the Organization’s recommendation that everyone with HIV should be offered antiretroviral therapy (ART). The report reveals that more than 18 million people with HIV are currently taking ART, and a similar number is still unable to access treatment, the majority of which are unaware of their HIV positive status.

Today, on World AIDS Day, you will repeatedly hear the mantra “leave no one behind,” referring to the concerted effort to end AIDS by 2030 pledged in the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. But evidence shows that people who use drugs, a population at particular risk of HIV transmission, are in fact being left further and further behind.
The best way to limit the transmission of HIV—along with hepatitis C—among this population is through harm reduction. This refers to specific health interventions, such as drug consumption rooms, needle and syringe programs, opioid substitution therapy, and overdose reversal treatment.

Copenhagen, 29 November 2016
For the first time, the cumulative number of HIV cases in the WHO European Region increased to over 2 million. More than 153 000 new HIV cases contributed to this figure in 2015 – a 7% increase compared to the previous year and the highest annual number since reporting began in the 1980s. These are the main findings of the new report "HIV/AIDS surveillance in Europe 2015", released jointly by the WHO Regional Office for Europe and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) ahead of World AIDS Day 2016.
“Despite significant efforts, HIV remains among the main public health concerns in the WHO European Region, in particular in its eastern part. 2015 recorded the highest number of new cases in one year, contributing to an appalling 2 million cumulative cases,” says Dr Zsuzsanna Jakab, WHO Regional Director for Europe.

A new WHO report provides insight into how countries in the WHO European Region can improve access and reduce medicine prices through strategic and well-planned procurement processes. The report examines the effect of different public procurement practices on supply security and prices for pharmaceuticals. It also addresses collaboration within and across countries to improve availability of affordable medicines for patients in the Region.
Countries in the Region have varying capacity and negotiating power when it comes to procuring new medicines and health technologies. As a result, the prices that a given country is asked to pay for its medicines may be disproportionally high and incompatible with its purchasing power.
