Health at a Glance: Asia/Pacific 2014

Health at a Glance: Asia/Pacific 2014

Measuring Progress towards Universal Health Coverage

This third edition of Health at a Glance Asia/Pacific presents a set of key indicators of health status, the determinants of health, health care resources and utilisation, health care expenditure and financing and health care quality across 27 Asia/Pacific countries and economies. Drawing on a wide range of data sources, it builds on the format used in previous editions of Health at a Glance, and gives readers a better understanding of the factors that affect the health of populations and the performance of health systems in these countries and economies.

Each of the indicators is presented in a user-friendly format, consisting of charts illustrating variations across countries and over time, brief descriptive analyses highlighting the major findings conveyed by the data, and a methodological box on the definition of the indicator and any limitations in data comparability. An annex provides additional information on the demographic context in which health systems operate. It is a joint OECD and WHO/WPRO and WHO/SEARO publication.

Regional and country profiles of measles elimination

Regional and country profiles of measles elimination

The Regional and Country Profiles of Measles Elimination provide a comprehensive overview of regional and country progress towards and status of measles elimination. The overview is organized into 5 sections including Demographic Information, Incidence, Epidemiologic and Virologic Characteristic, Surveillance and Laboratory Performance, Immunity Profile, and Sustainability of Measles Elimination in the context of NIP sustainability. Data will be updated periodically.

Measles-Rubella Bulletin

Measles-Rubella Bulletin

The Measles-Rubella Bulletin, issued by Western Pacific Regional Office of WHO shares information and reports progress on measles elimination activities in the Western Pacific Region. Timely articles focus on current activities and experiences with measles elimination efforts. In addition, the Measles-Rubella Bulletin provides updated country-specific surveillance information such as the number of reported suspected and confirmed measles cases, and measles incidence rate.

Poliomyelitis Surveillance Bulletin

Poliomyelitis Surveillance Bulletin

Poliomyelitis surveillance is worldwide based on reporting and investigating cases of acute flaccid paralysis (AFP), rather than just “suspected poliomyelitis”, serving two specific purposes. First, AFP surveillance substantially increases the sensitivity of the surveillance system and allows it to detect the entire spectrum of paralytic poliomyelitis, both classical and atypical cases, and thus wild poliovirus transmission in a population should it occur. Secondly, AFP surveillance provides objective data with which to monitor the quality of surveillance in an individual country or large population group.

The performance of AFP surveillance (including quality of laboratory testing) and incidence of poliomyelitis tables of each country in the WHO Western Pacific Region (WPR) is being published on a weekly basis to facilitate the timely global exchange of AFP surveillance data documenting how the Region is maintaining its poliomyelitis-free status.

Regional certification that indigenous transmission of wild poliovirus had stopped in all WPR countries was achieved in October 2000; the last indigenous wild poliovirus case had occurred in March 1997.
