A Roma Summit internazionale sul diabete urbano

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 8 luglio 2019

Roma Scienziati, politici, amministratori e società civile riuniti nella capitale, oggi e domani, da Italian Barometer Diabetes Observatory (Ibdo) Foundation, Comitato Nazionale per la Biosicurezza, le Biotecnologie e le Scienze della Vita della Presidenza del Consiglio dei Ministri, Health City Institute, I-Com Istituto per la competitività, Osservatorio Nazionale sulla Salute nelle Regioni Italiane, Intergruppo Parlamentare “Qualità di vita nelle Città”, in occasione del quinto anniversario del progetto Cities Changing Diabetes.
Proposte e priorità del piano di azione delineato dal progetto Cities Changing Diabetes per affrontare il diabete nella città metropolitana di Roma; discussione preliminare sull’avviamento del progetto nell’area di Milano; stipula dell’accordo di collaborazione strategica tra le metropoli di Houston, Milano, Roma e Shangai, per un approccio condiviso alla sfida posta dal diabete urbano; firma del protocollo d’intesa tra l’Intergruppo Parlamentare “Qualità di vita nelle Città” italiano e il britannico All-Party Parliamentary Group for Diabetes, per lo sviluppo di una collaborazione istituzionale congiunta, presentazione della figura dello Health City Manager: sono alcuni degli aspetti salienti del summit internazionale “Creating the World of Tomorrow – At the Heart of the City” che si apre nel pomeriggio a Roma e convoglia nella capitale esperti, politici, amministratori ed esponenti della società civile per due giorni di dibattito sul tema del diabete.Secondo i dati resi noti annualmente dal rapporto dell’International Diabetes Federation, il diabete riguarda nel mondo 425 milioni di adulti, più di un milione di bambini; causa ogni anno oltre 4 milioni di decessi, costa all’economia globale, di sola spesa sanitaria, 727 miliardi di dollari, cioè il 12 per cento del totale. Sono oltre 352 milioni le persone a rischio di ammalarsi, il che porta al coinvolgimento complessivo con la malattia di 1 abitante del pianeta su 10, ma ciò che preoccupa maggiormente è il rapido trend di crescita, per cui nel 2045 si prevedono 629 milioni di malati, con una crescita del 48 per cento rispetto ad oggi.Di particolare rilevanza, il tema della diffusione epidemica della malattia nelle città e nelle aree urbane, in cui risiedono oggi quasi i due terzi delle persone colpite dal diabete; per questa ragione, nel 2014 ha visto la luce, promosso dall’University College London (UCL) e dal danese Steno Diabetes Center, con il contributo dell’azienda farmaceutica Novo Nordisk, in collaborazione con istituzioni nazionali, amministrazioni locali, mondo accademico e terzo settore, il progetto internazionale Cities Changing Diabetes che si propone di studiare il fenomeno, suggerendo possibili risposte e correttivi. Ad oggi ha coinvolto una ventina di metropoli nei cinque continenti, Roma sin dal 2017 e Milano, new entry 2019, per l’Italia.Proprio al progetto Cities Changing Diabetes e al diabete urbano è dedicata la prima giornata di lavori dell’incontro romano che vede lo svolgersi del 4th Health City Forum e 3rd Roma Cities Changing Diabetes Summit. Organizzato da Italian Barometer Diabetes Observatory (Ibdo) Foundation, Comitato Nazionale per la Biosicurezza, le Biotecnologie e le Scienze della Vita della Presidenza del Consiglio dei Ministri, Health City Institute, I-Com Istituto per la competitività, Osservatorio Nazionale sulla Salute nelle Regioni italiane e Intergruppo Parlamentare “Qualità di vita nelle città”, il summit sarà anche occasione per avere il punto di vista della FAO e dell’OMS, grazie alla partecipazione di Anna Lartey, Direttore della Divisione Nutrizione e Sistemi alimentari della FAO, e di Francesca Racioppi, Direttore del Centro europeo salute e ambiente dell’OMS.
nella giornata di domani, sarà siglato un protocollo d’intesa tra rappresentanti dei parlamenti italiano e inglese, che avrà l’obiettivo di studiare azioni politiche comuni. “La lotta e in particolare la prevenzione del diabete necessitano dello sviluppo di azioni coordinate tra mondo accademico, scientifico, e politico. Questo accordo di collaborazione interparlamentare con i colleghi di Westminster rappresenta un importante passo in tal senso. Il nostro obiettivo comune sarà di sviluppare politiche volte alla prevenzione primaria della malattia, alla prevenzione delle complicanze, all’identificazione di indicatori che permettano di misurare il fenomeno e valutare il successo degli interventi, che saranno sia in ambito educativo e culturale, sia organizzativo. L’aspetto fondamentale dell’intesa, tuttavia, rappresenta il tentativo di dare vita a un modello di alleanza politica sul diabete in Europa, che possa indirizzare le future politiche di contrasto alla malattia, le priorità di finanziamento della ricerca e, in ultima analisi, aiutino a invertire la rotta di crescita del diabete urbano”, dice Roberto Pella, co-Presidente dell’Intergruppo Parlamentare “Qualità di vita nelle città” e Vice Presidente Vicario ANCI. Infine, la nuova figura dello Health City Manager, un professionista in grado di migliorare il contesto urbano riguardo la salute, coinvolgendo i cittadini nelle scelte politiche e impegnando le amministrazioni nella promozione della salute dei cittadini, il tutto anche attraverso modalità di partenariato pubblico–privato. Un ruolo, già individuato nella Roma Urban Health Declaration siglata durante il G7 sulla salute del novembre 2017 e dal documento di indirizzo approvato dal Comitato delle Regioni dell’Unione Europea e auspicato dal Commissario Europeo per la salute Andriukaitis, ritenuto in grado di guidare il processo di miglioramento della salute in ambito urbano, in sinergia con le amministrazioni locali e sanitarie.

International Steering Committee dedicated to making Nairobi Summit a success

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 24 Mag 2019

The International Steering Committee (ISC) for the Nairobi Summit on ICPD25 met on 26 April to discuss strategic planning for the Summit.The Summit aims to galvanize momentum and mobilize leadership in addressing outstanding and newly emerging challenges related to the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) Programme of Action and develop a roadmap to end the unfinished business of the ICPD by 2030, particularly focusing on reaching the “Three Zeros.” These three results – which are at the heart of the ICPD Programme of Action – are embedded within the broader UN Sustainable Development Goals, and underpin all efforts to advance the unfinished elements of the ICPD agenda:
Zero unmet need for family planning information and services.
Zero preventable maternal deaths; and
Zero gender-based violence and harmful practices against women and girls.
The Nairobi Summit is not a UN Summit in the traditional sense. It will instead adopt a format similar to that of the World Humanitarian Summit or the World Oceans Conference. In that vein, and to help spur action, the ISC members expressed their desire for the Nairobi Summit to adopt a series of global commitments focused on achieving the goals of the ICPD. Commitments are entirely voluntary, and the international community will discuss how to bring these to fruition at the Summit.ISC members expect the Summit will attract high-level political leaders and policy makers. They also hope that representatives from civil society organizations, foundations, academia, national parliaments, youth groups, and grassroot groups will take part to make the event as inclusive and dynamic as possible.
