Western Pomerania

Western Pomerania called Hither Pomerania, is the western extremity of the historic region of the Duchy Province of Pomerania, nowadays divided between the German state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and Poland. The name Pomerania comes from Slavic po more, which means "land by the sea"; the adjective for the region is Pomeranian, inhabitants are called Pomeranians. Forming part of the southern coast of the Baltic Sea, Western Pomerania's boundaries have changed through the centuries and it belonged to countries such as Poland, Sweden and Prussia. Before 1945, it embraced the whole area of Pomerania west of the Oder River. Today the cities of Szczecin, Świnoujście and Police are part of Poland, with the remainder of the region staying part of Germany. German Vorpommern now forms about one-third of the present-day north-eastern state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. German Western Pomerania had a population of about 470,000 in 2012 - while the Polish districts of the region had a population of about 520,000 in 2012.

So overall, about 1 million people live in the historical region of Western Pomerania today, while the Szczecin agglomeration reaches further. Towns on the German side include Damgarten, Anklam, Demmin, Grimmen, Ueckermünde and Barth; the German prefix Vor- denotes a location closer to the speaker, is the equivalent of "Hither" in English and Citerior/Cis- in Latin. The name "Hither Pomerania" has been used, but in modern English the German region is more called "Western Pomerania" or by its native name; the local dialect term is Low German: Vörpommern. The toponym Pomerania comes from Slavic po more; the Polish name for this region is Pomorze Przednie or Przedpomorze – corresponding to German Vorpommern – though from the Polish capital's point of view the region is more distant than the rest of Pomerania. Poland has both a historic and geographic term Western Pomerania as well as a province called West Pomerania, which comprises the western half of the Polish part of Pomerania; the major feature of Western Pomerania is its long Baltic Sea and lagoons coastline.

Typical is a distinct "double coast", whereby offshore islands separate lagoons from the open sea, forming a unique landscape. The islands Rügen and Usedom are located in Western Pomerania The largest town in Western Pomerania is Szczecin on the Polish side and Stralsund on the German side. Today it is still an important town economically; the towns of Stralsund and Greifswald together, after Rostock, are the second largest centres of population in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. In addition the region has the highest population density of the four planning regions in the state. Western Pomerania has two national parks: Jasmund National Park West Pomeranian Lagoon Area National ParkAnother region in Western Pomerania under extensive conservation protection is the Peene Valley. Vorpommern today is understood as comprising the islands of Rügen and Usedom and the nearby mainland matching the administrative districts of Vorpommern-Rügen and Vorpommern-Greifswald, though those districts' boundaries with Mecklenburg proper do not match the pre-1945 demarcation.

The region is mentioned in the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern state constitution as one of the two constituting regions of the state with the right to form a Landschaftsverband, an administrative entity subordinate only to the state level. Consideration was given during an unsuccessful district reform project in 1994 to restoring the old boundary, but this was not implemented; the Ribnitz and Fischland area of Vorpommern-Rügen were part of Mecklenburg. The old western boundary line is preserved in the division between the two Protestant church bodies of the Evangelical Lutheran State Church of Mecklenburg and the Pomeranian Evangelical Church. Major cities and towns in Vorpommern include Stralsund, Bergen auf Rügen, Anklam, Wolgast and Barth. Heringsdorf is a semi-urban center. With Polish entry into the European Union and the opening of borders, Stettin has resumed its place as a dominant city for southern and eastern parts of the region.

Popular tourist resorts can be found all along the Baltic beaches of the Fischland-Darß-Zingst peninsula and the islands of Hiddensee, Rügen and Usedom. The old Hanseatic towns are popular tourist destinations due to their brick gothic medieval architecture, downtown Stralsund is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Stralsund and Wolgast have a shipyard industry, the Volkswerft in Stralsund and the Peenewerft in Wolgast produce large ships, while the HanseYacht shipyard in Greifswald is specialized in building yachts. In Mukran near Sassnitz on Rügen, there is an international ferry terminal linking Western Pomerania to Sweden, Denmark and other oversee countries.

Minister for Health and Medical Research (New South Wales)

The New South Wales Minister for Health and Medical Research is a minister in the New South Wales Government and has responsibilities which includes all hospitals, health services, medical research in New South Wales, Australia. The current Minister for Health and Medical Research, since 30 January 2017 is Brad Hazzard, he is supported by the Minister for Mental Health, Regional Youth and Women Bronwyn Taylor, since April 2019. Together they administer the health portfolio through the Ministry of Health, its Office of Medical Research, a range of other government agencies. Both ministers are responsible to the Parliament of New South Wales; the role of a government advisor and administrator on medical policy in New South Wales began in 1914, with the appointment of Fred Flowers as the Minister for Public Health. However the medical portfolio had been administered in the government since 1848 when the first "Medical Adviser to the Government" was appointed, with his office reporting to the Colonial Secretary.

Following the amalgamation of the Board of Health and the Medical Advisor to the Government a "Department of Public Health" was established in April 1904, headed by the President of the Board of Health. This department was abolished in 1913 and was replaced by the "Office of the Director-General of Public Health" which, like its predecessor, operated under the supervision of the Colonial Secretary. Upon Flowers' appointment as Minister for Public Health, a dedicated government minister supervised the portfolio while remaining the junior minister to the Colonial Secretary; the office was reconstituted as a independent "Department of Public Health" headed by the Minister in 1938. The department existed until its abolition in 1972 with the passing of the Health Commission Act 1972 which created the "Health Commission of New South Wales" headed by the minister. In December 1982 the Health Commission was abolished by the Health Administration Act 1982 and replaced by the Department of Health. On 5 October 2011 the Department was renamed the "Ministry of Health".

On 1 July 1993, Premier John Fahey established the Ministry for the Status and Advancement of Women, the first independent ministry on women's affairs in the state. The inaugural Minister for the Status of Women was Kerry Chikarovski who took over the responsibilities of the Women’s Coordination Unit of the Chief Secretary and the administration of the Women’s Legal Status Act 1918 from the Attorney General; the Ministry was replaced by the Department for Women on 5 April 1995 by the Carr government with a Minister for Women. On 1 July 2004 the Department for Women was abolished and its responsibilities were transferred to the "Office for Women" within the Premier’s Department, with the Minister acting in an advisory role to the Premier on women's affairs; the name of office was changed to the "Office for Women's Policy" by June 2009 and from 4 April 2011 it was transferred from the Department of Premier and Cabinet to the Department of Family and Community Services. In 2015 the office was transferred to within the Ministry of Health.

Following the 2019 state election, the office was transferred to the newly-established Department of Family and Community Services and Justice. NSW Ministry of Health "The Ministry of Health". A History of Medical Administration in NSW. NSW Department of Health. 1973. Retrieved 21 May 2009
