  1. Occupational lung diseases and global occupational health on the Net.

    Article - En anglais

    Occupational lung disease is a major area of concern in occupational health, exhibiting a diverse panorama across countries.

    While pneumoconiosis is deemed to be the most common occupational disease in many developing countries, emphasis is shifting towards asbestos-related lung diseases and occupational asthma in industrialized countries.

    Following the Occupational Health for All strategies set forth by the World Health Organization, we propose that a model system based upon the Global Health Network can serve as an effective vehicle towards the prevention of occupational lung diseases on a global scale.

    It has the potential to : (1) enhance transmission of data and collaboration with the primary health care system in disease surveillance ; (2) strengthen research and information transfer and (3) promote education and training at all levels of prevention, with a possible application to the interpretation of chest radiograms.
