The focus of the symposium was on the restructuring of health systems in Central and Eastern Europe as it has affected environmental health, occupational health, and public health. The context of the meeting was the impact on environmental and occupational health brought about by the transition to a market economy and a democratic form of government. The meeting allowed the participants to illustrate the emergence of relevant aspects of civil society, particularly in Hungary, as the many sectors of the host country were represented. Specific topics considered included the status of restructuring society in central and eastern Europe, the ethics of prevention, restructuring environmental health in Hungary, roles of nongovernmental organizations in environmental health in Hungary, restructuring occupational health in Hungary, occupational health versus occupational safety, reforming public health in Hungary, and the politics of public health.
