“ Pollen is in the air: invasive plants and allergy in our changing environment ”

The two-day conference of the EU funded project Atopica taking place in Brussels on March 5-6th, 2015

A group of cellular and molecular biologists, immunologists, allergists, dermatologists, physicists, climate and air quality experts and land use specialists joint their efforts in a cross-disciplinary approach for the first time in Europe tackling the connection between pollen-related allergies, global and regional climate, air quality and land use and how to meet the health and environmental challenges of invasive alien species (IAS) invading Europe and other related issues.

You are invited to join the Atopica team at their conference and learn about the combined impact of changes in climate, land use and air pollution on the highly invasive weed Ambrosia artemisiifolia (common ragweed) and its consequences on health.

The Atopica conference will take place in Brussels, Belgium, at the Committee of the Regions, with the consortium reporting to journalists, policy makers, members of parliament and interested citizens. The conference will be a two-day event featuring talks by Atopica members, invited speakers and will include workshops, posters and round table sessions.

CH Srebrnjak is a new member of Health Promotion Hospitals & Health Services

hph certificateCH Srebrnjak is the first children's hospital in Croatia that became member of Health Promotion Hospitals & Health Services.
The International HPH Network is made up of more than 900 hospital and health service members in more than 40 countries.

More than a decade ago, the World Health Organization initiated the Network of Health Promoting Hospitals as a pilot project in order to support hospitals towards placing more emphasis on health promotion and disease prevention, rather than on diagnosis and curative services alone.

The goal of being an HPH member, of working with health promotion and of collaborating internationally is to achieve a better health gain by improving the quality of health care, the relationship between hospitals/health services, the community and the environment, as well as the conditions for and satisfaction of patients, relatives and staff.
