A la question "Pensez-vous que la pandémie globale actuelle a eu comme “effet positif” de souligner l'importance de l'épidémiosurveillance ?", le spécialiste nous répond par la positive. "Effectivement, elle met en lumière cet intérêt stratégique, et j'espère que les États mettront en place des dispositifs pour accroître cette dimension-là Mais finalement, quels vont être les leviers prioritaires pour renforcer l'épidémiosurveillance ? L'autre difficulté est que nous savons montrer a posteriori l'épidémiosurveillance mais, comme pour les séismes, nous avons encore du mal à concevoir des systèmes d'alerte efficace nous permettant d'anticiper suffisamment [les futures épidémies]. J'imagine qu'il y a une conscience aujourd'hui [de cette problématique] qui est plus forte qu'hier."
In all our work, an emphasis is placed on building partnerships for change among international agencies, governments, nongovernmental organizations, corporations, national ministries of health, and most of all, with people at the grass roots. We help people acquire the tools, knowledge, and resources they need to transform their own lives, building a more peaceful and healthier world for us all.
Personal health also depends partially on the social structure of a person's life. The maintenance of strong social relationships, volunteering, and other social activities have been linked to positive mental health and also increased longevity. One American study among seniors over age 70, found that frequent volunteering was associated with reduced risk of dying compared with older persons who did not volunteer, regardless of physical health status.[54] Another study from Singapore reported that volunteering retirees had significantly better cognitive performance scores, fewer depressive symptoms, and better mental well-being and life satisfaction than non-volunteering retirees.[55]
Samuel Soubeyrand, lui, est directeur de recherche de l'unité Biostatistique et Processus Spatiaux. Il pratique l'épidémiosurveillance, une méthode d'analyse mise en avant pendant la crise du SARS-CoV-2. “L'alerte sanitaire que la Chine aurait pu émettre à l'époque aurait certainement permis de déceler cette maladie émergente, désormais connue sous l'appellation de Covid-19. La bataille de la détection a été perdue”, déclare-t-il. “La gagner nous aurait permis d'anticiper l'épidémie, d'adapter les plans d'actions et de lutte sanitaire, ou encore d'initier des recherches de laboratoire spécifiques au SARS-CoV-2.” Pour détecter de manière précoce les potentielles épidémies futures, l'épidémiosurveillance repose sur deux leviers, d'après M. Soubeyrand : l'analyse des données métagénomiques des populations, et l'analyse des “autres” données, celles des réseaux sociaux, des recherches internet de symptômes, de la fréquentation des parkings hospitaliers, etc.
Just as there was a shift from viewing disease as a state to thinking of it as a process, the same shift happened in definitions of health. Again, the WHO played a leading role when it fostered the development of the health promotion movement in the 1980s. This brought in a new conception of health, not as a state, but in dynamic terms of resiliency, in other words, as "a resource for living". 1984 WHO revised the definition of health defined it as "the extent to which an individual or group is able to realize aspirations and satisfy needs and to change or cope with the environment. Health is a resource for everyday life, not the objective of living; it is a positive concept, emphasizing social and personal resources, as well as physical capacities".[5] Thus, health referred to the ability to maintain homeostasis and recover from insults. Mental, intellectual, emotional and social health referred to a person's ability to handle stress, to acquire skills, to maintain relationships, all of which form resources for resiliency and independent living.[4] This opens up many possibilities for health to be taught, strengthened and learned.
The maintenance and promotion of health is achieved through different combination of physical, mental, and social well-being, together sometimes referred to as the "health triangle."[19][20] The WHO's 1986 Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion further stated that health is not just a state, but also "a resource for everyday life, not the objective of living. Health is a positive concept emphasizing social and personal resources, as well as physical capacities."[21]
