INAUGURAL CEREMONY

Professor Andrzej Wojtyła gave a welcoming speech and greeted all guests and participants (Photo 1). This was followed by a welcome address from Mayor Krystian Kinastowski.
The first welcome lecture, entitled “One hundred years of health in Poland”, was given by Professor Witold Zatoński, representing European Observatory of Health Inequalities and the Health Promotion Foundation. He showed how trends in life expectancy in Poland have changed during the last 100 years, in comparison with other countries. Poland experienced a phase of stagnation in life expectancy between 1960 and 1990, followed by a sharp increase. Professor Zatoński tried to explain the possible causes of these health changes, providing as an example changes in rates of infectious diseases and infant mortality control. He underlined the persistent problem of premature deaths in Poland and the role of tobacco smoking and alcohol consumption [3].
Professor Peter Boyle delivered his lecture entitled “Health, wellbeing, and family”, issues of rising importance that should be addressed in public health discussions. He proposed considering the family as a unit and looking at a variety of factors other than illness, like poverty, that could have an impact on health and wellbeing [4].
After a laudation in his honour presented by Rector Andrzej Wojtyła, Professor Jonathan Samet gave the first conference keynote lecture, “The environment and health inequalities: problems and solutions” (Photo 2). Professor Samet showed evidence for the contribution of environmental factors to health inequalities. He emphasised the role of ambient air pollution and tobacco smoking in health disparities worldwide and in Poland, and suggested potential solutions to reduce the burden of diseases attributed to smoking and pollution [2].

SCIENTIFIC MEETING

The first scientific session was devoted to “Smoking and health: preparing for the tobacco endgame?” and was moderated by Dr Mateusz Zatoński from the Health Promotion Foundation, Poland, and Dr Mark Parascandola from National Cancer Institute, USA [5]. The panellists discussed potential measures that can help address the persistent problem of smoking (Photo 3). The session opened with a video address from Professor Allan Brandt from Harvard University, USA (see Webappendix 4), who gave an overview of the key themes in the history of tobacco control. Dr Zatoński then summarised tobacco control developments in Poland since the 1990s, dividing the smoking epidemic in the country into three distinct phases. Professor Cliff Douglas presented American Cancer Society activities in capacity-building, fostering a stronger global tobacco control community, and areas of priority for future work [6]. Dr Rob Branston from the University of Bath talked about the importance of taxation in driving declines in smoking rates, and why increasing tobacco prices should be viewed with enthusiasm, not suspicion, by politicians [7]. Finally, Lilia Olefir, representing “Life” Advocacy Center in Ukraine, outlined the recent developments in tobacco control in Ukraine, which has seen some vibrant grassroots advocacy, but also strong tobacco industry opposition [8]. To finish off, Dr Parascandola discussed the key themes that emerged from the panel [9].
Session number two was co-chaired by Professor Tomasz Zdrojewski from the Polish Academy of Sciences and Professor Marcin Wojnar from Medical University of Warsaw (Photo 4). It was devoted to the still unfinished cardiovascular revolution and to the most important drivers of cardiovascular diseases – smoking, alcohol, diet, and air pollution. Professor Zdrojewski started the session with a short discussion of mortality rates due to heart diseases in Poland, in comparison to other European countries, and the preventability of non-communicable diseases, especially cardiovascular diseases [10]. Dr Piotr Bandosz’s (Medical University of Gdańsk) lecture concerned the role of cholesterol and atherogenic factors of diet in the development of cardiovascular disease. He presented data confirming the end of favourable changes in the structure of fat consumption in Poland and proposed possible interventions [11]. Professor Zbigniew Gaciong from the Medical University of Warsaw summarised evidence of the causal relationship between alcohol consumption and cardiovascular diseases. The conclusion was that alcohol beverages should not be viewed as substitutes for the well-proven cardiovascular risk reducing behaviours such as healthy diet, physical activity, and pharmacotherapy [12]. Dr Jacek Moskalewicz (Institute of Psychiatry and Neurology in Warsaw, Poland) outlined the evolution of alcohol policy during the time of transition in Poland, in the 1980s and 1990s [13]. Professor Carlo La Vecchia (Department of Clinical Sciences and Community Health at the University of Milan “La Statale”), presented data from a series of Italian studies on various aspects of the Mediterranean diet and the risk of cardiovascular diseases and several neoplasms. Besides the Mediterranean diet, he underlined the role of healthy body weight in disease prevention [14]. Professor Eva Negri (University of Milan “La Statale”) talked about gender differences in smoking-related diseases [15]. Dr Mindaugas Štelemėkas from Health Research Institute, Lithuanian University of Health Sciences, spoke about the Lithuanian experience in alcohol control in recent decades, and the potential role of alcohol policy changes in health improvement [16]. Finally, Christina Ciecierski, Professor at Northeastern Illinois University, Chicago, USA, summarised potential influences of economic mechanisms on alcohol and tobacco consumption in Poland. The session ended with a summary of key points by Prof. Tomasz Zdrojewski.
The third session of the conference focused on the importance of building healthy local communities, in Kalisz and elsewhere, and was co-chaired by Kinga Janik-Koncewicz from the Health Promotion Foundation and Mayor Krystian Kinastowski [17]. The aim of the session was to propose possible programmes and initiatives that could be implemented to improve health indicators and wellbeing in the Kalisz region, as well as share the best international examples of such interventions (Photo 5). The first speaker, Mayor Kinastowski, introduced the audience to basic demographic information on the City of Kalisz and its health service capacity [18]. Dr Sonia Angell, former Deputy Commissioner of the New York City Department of Health then talked about the risk factors of cardiovascular diseases and specific recommendations of interventions based on experiences from New York City [19]. Next, Kinga Janik-Koncewicz gave a presentation about possible activities aimed at preparing a diagnosis of health for the Kalisz region. She briefly presented one of the Health Promotion Foundation’s current projects, focused on building health competencies in the Lower Silesia region of Poland, which could be adapted and implemented in the Kalisz region [20, 21]. This was followed by Aleksandra Herbeć’s (University College London) presentation focused on innovative programmes for the treatment of tobacco dependence [22]. Małgorzata Stelmach presented a summary of achievements in cervical cancer control in Poland, including the Kalisz region [23]. Finally, Mayor Kinastowski summarised the session and took questions and comments from the audience.
The fourth session was chaired by Professor Witold Zatoński and devoted to the genesis of the Declaration of the Calisia World Conference on Family Health, 2019. Work on the Declaration was coordinated by Professor Leif Aarø (Norwegian Institute of Public Health) (Photo 6) [24]. Finally, Professor Michał Kleiber from the Polish Academy of Sciences presented the Foresight strategy, describing activities influencing public policy in future.
At the end of the scientific workshop, the Mayor of Kalisz invited conference speakers and participants to City Hall for the closing ceremony (Photos 7, 8). All speakers received letters of gratitude from Rector Andrzej Wojtyła.

PRE-CONFERENCE EVENT
