Carina Ferreira Borges added: “In the eastern European and central Asian countries where the greatest decreases have been achieved, alcohol has long been a key risk factor for the burden of disease, and levels of harm still remain unacceptably high, affecting individuals, families and communities. These countries currently lead by example in implementing alcohol policies, but they need to maintain and increase their efforts, and other countries of the Region need to follow their lead,” External link

Carina Ferreira Borges concluded: “However, these improvements were mainly determined by countries of the eastern part of the Region, many of which have introduced best-buy policies. It is time for the whole Region to learn this lesson that will greatly benefit people’s health, the economy and well-being,” External link

Henri P Kluge concluded: “The greatest determinant of how many people get infected and how many people die in the coming weeks is what you as an individual do or don’t do. We have seen it time and time again: virus spread can be stopped. My message to governments in the Region is therefore that now is not the time to relax measures. We can’t afford not to heed the danger. We have all made sacrifices, but we cannot let exhaustion win. We must keep reining in the virus,” External link

Andrea Ammon commented: “In the EU/EEA, the overall TB notification rate continued to fall in 2019, highlighting some progress towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). However, despite this progress, the EU/EEA is not currently on track to reach the goal of ending the TB epidemic by 2030. Further to this, across all cohorts, treatment success in the EU/EEA remains well below the WHO targets. The wide-scale disruption to TB services due to the COVID-19 pandemic will make it even more difficult for Member States to reach the SDGs and treatment targets, but now is the time for countries to accelerate their progress towards eliminating TB” External link

The EU has been and will continue to be a reliable partner in this process,” External link

Alexander Rumyantsev explained: “If I needed to treat cancer in my child, I wouldn’t allow a surgical oncologist to take the lead on the case. I would call a paediatric specialist who had enough experience and knowledge to establish a correct diagnosis and choose the correct therapy. Such a professional would be able to control all medication and, if needed, surgical operations,” External link

Liana Alexandru concludes: “The interaction with the doctors from Alopedi was very pleasant. I used their services twice and they were very kind. The call waiting time is short and the doctors gave me all their attention. I found out about Alopedi a few years ago from a popular blogger. At first, I was reluctant to use such a service but, based on my personal experience, I would like the service to be extended nationwide. I would be happy to have something similar in Bucharest,” External link
