Dr. Hussain Bou Zeid, representative of the World Health Organization in Lebanon

crashes are an epidemic that should be treated immediately

Dr. Hussain Bou Zeid, representative of the World Health Organization in Lebanon

Dr. Hussain Bou Zeid, the representative of the World Health Organization (WHO) in Lebanon, called for the cooperation of several parties involved, including ministries and social organizations in order to promote public
safety and hence decrease the deaths and disabilities caused by unintentional injuries. Dr. Bou Zeid confirms
that the lack of statistics is no excuse for the lack of actions taken in the present time regarding this issue.
 He also stressed to YASA the importance of using appropriate precautions to decrease the injury among workers, and farmers in particular, due to the lack of attention farming gets in terms of Labor Safety.
Bou Zeid also mentioned and praised the Farming Safety event that occurred with the collaboration of YASA and the Scientific Research Foundation – SRF.

 Q: What is the connection between Public Safety and Health?
 A: At the World Health Organization we see health as a whole and consider precautions to be the basic starting point to tackling this issue, and that treatment follows afterwards. Safety is the road that ultimately leads to health.
 The organization has put great efforts to address and tackle the issue of road safety, which lies within the frame of health. Road safety has previously been neglected as a health related issue, yet car crashes should be considered an epidemic that should be stopped and treated like any other harmful growing epidemic. Such car crashes are only one branch from the larger issue of health. There are many important daily life accidents that occur within the home, as well as Farming Safety, which has YASA and the Scientific Research Foundation - SRF in which farmers generally complained of the many dangers of the insecticides and chemical products used.
The organization stresses the necessity to use all available precautions to prevent injuries due to such various occurring accidents.

 Q: What is the World Health Organization’s role in terms of Public Safety?
 A: The office of the World Health Organization in Lebanon is starting to endeavor a new way to address the issue of public safety by providing awareness campaigns. It considers accidents and injuries to be the most important issue that should be addressed in Lebanon.
The organization generally supports issues regarding public safety of any sort, and specifically, road safety. It calls for all people to cooperate to control and reduce the amounts of injuries and accidents that take place.

 Q: What is the correct way to perform statistics for different accidents and severe injuries that occur in Lebanon? 
 A: Surely and without doubt, the issue at hand must be studied and researched, starting with the base of the problem. However, the lack of statistics is no excuse for the lack of action taken in the present time to address this issue.
In order to gain such statistics, available conditions must be achieved by organizations concentrating on acquiring such information. Yet, this is not for the Ministry of Public Health to address alone; there should be cooperation between all organizations and associations that have related purposes, such as YASA.
We have no ideal method to perform the statistics needed in Lebanon regarding all the different accidents and injuries, however, the best way is to perform statistics with the cooperation of the parties involved.
In such an issue, I ask myself, “Who causes household accidents?” No one is to blame, yet awareness should not be neglected due to the lack of statistics. Therefore, in order to attain an acceptable solution, the cooperation of all involved, such as hospitals, doctors, and organizations, is necessary.
Our role in the organization, with the collaboration with the Ministry of Public Health as well as other parties similar to YASA, is to enforce a public safety action in society. The statistics are a method to addressing this issue, but not a cause itself. It aids the campaign, yet the task at hand now is to enforce public safety and its importance in society.

 Q: How do you see the issue of Labor and Farming Safety specifically?
 A: The safety of laborers is very important when it comes to providing healthcare to everyone. The issue of farming safety obtains less awareness as opposed to the safety of labor, which is why when YASA and SRF presented the issue of farming safety; we fully supported the cause being proposed. Farms should earn specific precautions and safety measures due to the use of toxins and dangerous materials. When using insecticides, certain precautionary conditions should be followed by farmers to avoid life-threatening harm. The World Health Organization has trusts in YASA and the actions it will take in this important proposal, for we know YASA are capable of raising awareness in a way that influences people greatly while delivering the message.
