FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQS) CAN MOBILE PHONES ACTUALLY IMPROVE HEALTH? The greatest current potential for “mHealth,” as it is called, is in raising awareness about risks and symptoms. Ailments such as heart disease, stroke, lung cancer, and diabetes – so-called non- communicable diseases (NCDs), meaning they are not caused by infections passed from person to person -- are caused to a great extent by behavior. (...) If mobile-phone applications can reduce the incidence of serious ailments such as heart problems, diabetes, and cancer; can reduce the number of unnecessary doctors’ visits; can substitute inexpensively for various laboratory tests; and can catch health problems quickly, before they become more serious, more difficult, and more costly to treat, then a great deal of traditional health infrastructure may not have to be built.

The 10 commonest were hypoacousis caused by noise (18,419 cases), skin ailments caused by allergy provoking or irritative substances (8,767), respiratory ailments of an allergic nature (4,543), silicosis (4,381), asbestosis (3,894), paralysis of the nerves due to pressure (3,392), osteoarticular diseases of the hands and wrists caused by vibration (2,539), angioneurotic diseases caused by mechanical vibration (2,454), diseases of the periarticular sacs caused by pressure (2,305) and mesothelioma (1,446). (...) The resulting methodological proposals are designed to yield statistics during EODS Phase 1 that display the following characteristics: - providing figures on the incidence of definitive first registrations for the diagnosis and type of occupational disease under consideration in the reference year; - distinguishing between three types of occupational disease: (i) temporary ailments (causing a simple interruption in work, the first interruption occurring during the reference year), the seriousness being measured by the number of CES/SEM.41/18 page 3 working days lost; (ii) permanent ailments (first registration of permanent incapacity for work during the year), a distinction being made between serious permanent incapacity, the seriousness being measured by a level of disability higher than a minimum threshold, and minor cases; (iii) fatal diseases (death occurring within the year).
