The Development of Modern Epidemiology

This chapter demonstrates the important role played by the World Health Organisation (WHO), International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), and the EU in fostering education, training, and cooperation in epidemiology in Europe. The possibilities for improving the health of the population in Europe have not and are not being exploited in an optimal way. Unfortunately, the concentration on wealth creation and the illusory glamour of developing new technologies, for example molecular biology, permeates international bodies as much as it does national governments.

Keywords:   World Health Organization, European Union, Europe, education, training
