This report builds on the global estimates provided in that report and provides information by country on the proportion of adult (age 30 years and above) deaths atributable to tobacco by major communicable and non-communicable causes by age and sex. although the report providesdata to 80 years and over, the age groups 30-44, 45-59, 60-69, together withthe summary totalwill be of particular interest to most low and middle income countries whilist many high income countries, especially those whit a relatively aging population may also want examine changes in the higher age groups (70 and above).

The report contains country especific estimates including death rates atributtable to tobacco (per 100,000) and proportion of deaths attributable to tabacco (%). The estimates are organized by global, WHO regions ando countries (in Alphabetical order). Some countries are not included - the most commonreason being that the data for some of these were still under review at the time of printing.

2009 World Survey On The Role og Women in Development
Autor: ONU
The 2009 World Survey on the Role of Women in Development addresses the important theme of ?Women?s control over economic resources and access to financial resources, including microfinance?. The World Survey illustrates the importance of examining women?s access to economic and financial resources in a broad sense, including resources generated at national level through budgets, trade, and development assistance; financial services such as savings, credit, remittance transfers and insurance; employment; land, property and other productive
resources; and social protection.
There are significant development gains to be made in ensuring women?s equitable access to and control over economic and financial resources, including in relation to economic growth, poverty eradication and the well-being of families and communities. The impact of inequality in access to resources represents a global challenge with implications at individual, family, community and national level.
The World Survey makes a timely contribution in the context of the current financial and economic crisis. It points out the need for an appropriate gender-sensitive response to the crisis which minimizes the negative impacts and takes advantage of the opportunity to develop positive trends.
The United Nations must demonstrate leadership in identifying and systematically and effectively addressing discrimination against women in relation to resources. Appropriate responses will facilitate both achievement of gender equality and empowerment of women and economic growth and long term prosperity.
It is my hope that the World Survey will contribute to an improved understanding of gender equality implications of economic development and will guide the design of gendersensitive policy measures that will increase women?s access to and control over economic and financial resources. I commend it to a broad global audience.
In addition to its input to discussions on women and development in the General Assembly in October 2009, the World Survey also constitutes a contribution to the 15-year review of implementation of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action in the Commission on the Status of Women in March 2010 and to the ECOSOC Annual Ministerial
Review, focused on gender equality and empowerment of women, in July 2010.
