Abstract: OBJECTIVE: This study set out to determine what proportion of Trinidad and Tobago (T&T) households (HHs) were willing to support changes in specific policies, laws and regulations in a national alcohol campaign. DESIGN AND METHODS: A cross-sectional convenience sample of HHs were surveyed from a random sample of enumeration districts (ED) in T&T. The interviewer-applied, field pre-tested de novo questionnaire had 5 domains and was developed over 1 1/2 years after extensive literature review and consultation. Many of the WHO 'best buys' were included. RESULTS: 1695 HHs (from 53 ED) responded from a total of 1837 HHs approached, a response rate (RR) of 92%. In a national campaign the following proportions of HHs would support: setting the legal age for drinking at 21 years (82.4%); restricting (73.1%), banning (54.4%) alcohol advertising on TV and other media; banning all alcohol advertising at sports and cultural events (64.8%); banning radio stations playing songs with reference to alcohol use (71.3%); holding sellers of alcohol responsible for the amount of alcohol sold (79.5%); advocating that proof of age to be shown by persons buying alcohol (87.4%); placing more prominent warning labels on products displaying alcohol content (87.2%); placing more prominent warning labels on products showing harmful effects (88.5% ); increasing taxes on alcohol sales (87.7% ). CONCLUSIONS: HHs in T&T were willing to support changes in policies around alcohol, including many of the policies shown by the WHO to be effective in reducing the harmful consumption of alcohol.

Title: Las funciones esenciales de la salud publica: un tema emergente en las reformas del sector de la salud / The essential functions of public health: an emerging theme in health sector reforms

Abstract: In the Americas, health sector reforms are facing the challenge of strengthening the steering and leadership role of health authorities. An important part of that role consists of fulfilling the essential public health functions (EPHFs) that are incumbent on all levels of government. For that, it's crucial to improve public health practice, as well as the instruments used to assess the current state of public health practice and the areas where it needs to be strengthened. For that purpose, the Pan American Health Organization has started an initiative called "Public Health in the Americas", with the objective of defining and measuring EPHFs, as a way of improving public health practice and strengthening the leadership provided by health authorities at all levels of government. This article summarizes conceptual and methodological aspects of defining and measuring EPHFs. The article also analyzes the implications that measuring performance on these public health roles, responsibilities, and activities would have for improving public health practice in the Americas (AU)
