Author : Commission européenne - EUROSTAT
For the older EU28 population, those aged 65 years and over, circulatory diseases and neoplasms were by far the most prevalent causes of death in 2010, with 1 931 deaths and 1 075 deaths respectively per 100 000 inhabitants of this age group. Respiratory diseases (378 deaths per 100 000 inhabitants), digestive diseases (177), diseases of the nervous system (154) and deaths due to external causes (125) were the other main causes of death for this age group.
The process of human communication has aroused interest since ancient times but it was only during the second half of the twentieth century that communication emerged as one of the leading fields in scientific research: it has become an object of study within disciplines such as sociology, anthropology, social psychology, economics, physics, education and political science, among others. The interconnection of several fields, for example the audiovisual field, information technology and telecommunications, has considerably increased the number of channels for the transmission of information, and these are increasingly becoming organised into networks.
A recent report on the region, Young People Today. Time To Act Now, shows that while there have been encouraging gains in terms of HIV in this region – 6,3 million people are on treatment and far larger numbers of people are living longer and healthier lives - there are still 50 new HIV infections every hour among young people, with the majority occurring among young women. Less than 60% of young people in the region still don't know basic facts on preventing HIV infection.
Was the recent decision by Ukraine not to sign a major association agreement with the European Union a failure of EU foreign policy?
