Sexual reproductive health. Stigma and discrimination continue to impede the realization of people’s rights, including access to essential information and services to prevent and treat HIV. Sexual and reproductive health and rights, indeed all human rights, are essential for realizing this vision. UNFPA promotes integrating HIV responses with sexual and reproductive health care, part of an overarching strategy for universal access to HIV prevention, care and treatment services, including condoms. We support the empowerment of key populations, women and girls, and young people to live healthy and fulfilling lives and to access the services they need, free from stigma and discrimination and all forms of gender-based violence. UNFPA works with partners to increase access to HIV-related services and sexual and reproductive health services for young people, key populations, and women and girls, including those living ...

The question is neither academic nor romantic: while many donors, including the Hewlett Foundation, often support the most cost-effective and evidence-based approaches first through pilot tests and eventually “at scale,” we’ve had a hunch that to reach the next wave of contraceptive users – particularly young women, rural women and poor women in sub-Saharan Africa – donors, governments and service delivery organizations will have to think and do business differently. And so we went with our hunch that seeking out new partnerships with experts outside the field of reproductive health and introducing an approach like “ design thinking ”, or human-centered design, into this mature field had the potential to solve some persistent challenges. Challenges such as how to reach populations that do not currently use contraception because of social stigma, fear of side effects and infertility, lack of information; empower young people to take control of their reproductive health; and ...

Brody took the audience through Carson’s early work on the dangers of pesticides and other chemical agents. BPA has been under increasing scrutiny because of its alleged health effects, and animal studies have linked this compound to a host of reproductive problems. The BPA hearing, before the National Toxicology Center, moreover revealed another point of common ground between the reproductive health community and the environmental one: both operate in a political climate in which the integrity of science is under attack.

Commentary : Law and Policy United States Conference of Catholic Bishops Influential in Passage of Let Women Die Act 2011. Catholics today expressed anger about the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ role in promoting support for the so-called “Protect Life Act” HR 358, a bill that will endanger women’s lives across the US with an extreme ban on abortion coverage while expanding permission for health professionals to refuse to provide reproductive healthcare services, even in life-threatening situations. The bishops, having failed to convince the majority of Catholics on issues related to reproductive health and sexuality, are attempting to use Congress to impose their personal beliefs on all Americans. The bishops should stop forcing their personal beliefs on others and allow women and their doctors to make healthcare decisions. Even more concerning, HR 358 will also place many women who need reproductive healthcare in ...

A scientific review released today highlights the dangers of exposing people and especially pregnant women to hormone disrupting chemicals in consumer products, and focuses on the risks these pose to baby boys and the reproductive health of men. Male Reproductive Health Disorders and the Potential Role of Exposure to Environmental Chemicals. Many everyday chemicals in the environment or in consumer products have the potential to block the action of testosterone, and a baby’s exposure to this mixture of chemicals may undermine this process and harm future male reproductive health. This new CHEM Trust report highlights that animal studies have clearly established that certain hormone disrupting chemicals, in particular testosterone disrupting chemicals, can cause TDS-like disorders. There are also two new publications for the general public which present these ...

Analysis : Maternity and Birthing Stress Kills: Economic Insecurity and Black Women’s Maternal Health Outcomes. by Elizabeth Dawes Gay March 19, 2014 - 1:57 pm. Tweet. When we hear “stress kills,” we often imagine a wealthy business executive dying of a heart attack in their early 50s because they put in too many long nights at the office. But stress also kills pregnant Black women and their babies in a more surreptitious way. Young woman with a headache via Shutterstock. This piece is published in collaboration with Echoing Ida, a Strong Families project. Fifty years ago, President Lyndon B. Johnson announced t he War on Poverty, a set of legislation and programs intended to respond to the needs of people living in poverty. Today, many people still need and benefit from War on Poverty programs such as early childhood education, supple mental nutrition assistance food stamps, work study opportunities, and federal family planning grants.

*  First Things First: Revised: THE TRUTH AND HALF-TRUTHS ABOUT REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH
Part I--- INTRODUCTION Several bills have been filed in the two Houses of the Philippine Congress, proposing a law on reproductive health. ANTI-REPRODUCTION BILLS The bills are, strictly speaking, anti-reproduction bills. CONTRACEPTION FIRST, ABORTION NEXT The proposed anti-reproduction legislation constitutes the first step. Even the House substitute bill, which consolidates four component bills into one after only one public hearing, is attributed to this group, instead of having been put together by the Joint Committees on Health and on Population and Family Relations, to which the original bills had been referred, or by a Technical Working Group appointed by the same committees, as is the usual practice. But just as the Lord himself will not use force to stop anyone from stealing in office, the Church will not strongarm anyone into following its teaching on reproductive health. Now, if Church law has not prevented Catholic women from contracepting, and no civil statute ...

(1/211) Provision of sexual health services to adolescent enrollees in Medicaid managed care.

OBJECTIVES: This Seattle project measured sexual health services provided to 1112 Medicaid managed care enrollees aged 14 to 18 years. METHODS: Three health maintenance organizations (HMOs) that provide Medicaid services for a capitated rate agreed to participate. These included a non-profit staff-model HMO, a for-profit independent practice association (IPA), and a non-profit alliance of community clinics. Analyses used health maintenance organizations' administrative data, chart reviews, and Medicaid encounter data. RESULTS: Health maintenance organizations provided primary care to 54% and well care to 20% of Medicaid enrollees. Girls were more likely than boys to have their sexual history taken or to be given condom counseling. Only 27% of sexually active girls were tested for chlamydia, with significantly lower rates of testing among those who spoke English as a second language. The nonprofit staff-model plan outperformed the for-profit independent practice association on most measures. CONCLUSIONS: Substantial room for improvement exists in sexual health services delivery to adolescent Medicaid managed care enrollees.  (+info)

(2/211) A 6-month pilot of a collaborative clinic between genitourinary medicine services and a young persons' sexual health clinic.

OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether situating a genitourinary medicine (GUM) clinic within a Brook centre is successful in attracting a younger client group than that traditionally seen in GUM clinics within hospitals. DESIGN: A descriptive study of a 6-month pilot clinic. SETTING: Brook in Manchester. A community clinic providing sexual health advice to clients under the age of 25 years. With the collaboration of Withington Hospital GUM Department, Manchester. PARTICIPANTS: All clients under the age of 25 years attending the pilot GUM clinic. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: The age of the clients attending and the diagnosis made. RESULTS: A total of 137 visits were made by 93 clients. Under-16s comprised 6% of all visits compared to 1.5% at Withington GUM clinic (adjusted for the under-25s) and 12% at Brook. Far more Chlamydia trachomatis was seen (34% of all clients) than in a traditional GUM clinic (18% of all clients). Contact tracing resulted in 82% of named contacts being traced. CONCLUSION: The pilot clinic was successful in attracting a much younger client group than a traditional hospital-based service.  (+info)

(3/211) Comparing the quality of three models of postabortion care in public hospitals in Mexico City.

CONTEXT: Each year, an estimated 120,000 women in Mexico seek treatment in public hospitals for abortion-related complications--the country's fourth leading cause of maternal mortality. Models of postabortion care emphasizing counseling and provision of contraceptives have the potential to improve the quality of care these women receive. METHODS: Between April 1997 and August 1998, women treated for abortion complications in six Mexican Institute of Social Security (IMSS) hospitals in the Mexico City metropolitan area were surveyed. Data related to patient-provider interaction, information provision and counseling were analyzed for three models of care: sharp curettage standard care, sharp curettage postabortion care and manual vacuum aspiration postabortion care. RESULTS: Women in the two postabortion care groups rated the quality of services they received more highly than did those receiving sharp curettage standard care. A significantly greater proportion of women treated under the postabortion care models than of those treated under the sharp curettage standard model received information about their health status before treatment, the uterine evacuation procedure, signs of postabortion complications and care at home. In addition, a greater proportion of women treated under the postabortion care models accepted a contraceptive method before leaving the facility (64-78% vs. 40%). CONCLUSIONS: Implementation of a postabortion care model contributes to the delivery of high-quality services to women experiencing abortion complications. The standard IMSS model of postabortion treatment should be modified to emulate those in hospitals that systematically link general counseling and family planning services to the clinical services provided to women with abortion complications.  (+info)

(4/211) Facility-level reproductive health interventions and contraceptive use in Uganda.

CONTEXT: In Uganda, modern contraceptive use has recently increased in areas served by the Delivery of Improved Services for Health (DISH) project. Whether these increases are associated with facility-level factors is unknown, however. METHODS: Data from the 1999 DISH Evaluation Surveys were used in multivariate logistic regressions to assess the independent relationships of five indicators of the family planning service environment with individual-level use of a modern contraceptive in rural and urban areas. The surveys consisted of a household questionnaire of 1,766 women of reproductive age and a facility module implemented in all health facilities that serve the sampled population. RESULTS: After women's social and demographic characteristics were controlled for, none of the service environment factors was independently associated with current use of a modern method in rural areas. By contrast, in urban areas, the proximity of a private health facility (which likely reflects an increased availability of methods) was positively associated with current use (odds ratio, 2.1), as was the presence of a higher number (three or more) of DISH-trained service providers (1.7). CONCLUSIONS: The presence of private health facilities was the factor most strongly associated with contraceptive use in urban areas, perhaps because they improved the availability of methods. Few other facility-level program inputs had significant effects.  (+info)

(5/211) Contextual influences on reproductive wellness in northern India.

OBJECTIVES: There has been a growing recognition of the importance of contextual influences on health outcomes. This article examines community-level influences on 5 reproductive wellness outcomes in Uttar Pradesh, India. METHODS: Multilevel modeling is used to estimate household and community-level effects on wellness, with hierarchically organized data from a statewide survey of villages, urban blocks, households, women, health providers, and staff. RESULTS: The household and community have a strong contextual influence on wellness, although the models explain more of the variation in outcomes between households than between communities. CONCLUSIONS: Communities influence wellness outcomes through the socioeconomic environment and the characteristics of the health infrastructure. The specific dimensions of the community and health infrastructure varied between the outcomes.  (+info)

(7/211) The psychosocial context of young adult sexual behavior in Nicaragua: looking through the gender lens.

CONTEXT: Understanding the nature and magnitude of gender differences in sexual norms among young adults in Nicaragua, and how these differences affect sexual behavior, is important for the design of reproductive health programs. METHODS: A representative cross-sectional survey was conducted in six departments in the Pacific region of Nicaragua in 1998. A total of 552 never-married women and 289 never-married men aged 15-24 were interviewed about their perceptions of social pressure to engage in premarital sex; perceived social approval of and attitudes toward premarital sex and premarital pregnancy; perceived sexual activity among peers and siblings; communication with parents on sexuality issues; the psychosocial context of sexual debut; and preferred sources of information on sexuality issues. RESULTS: Most young men (83%) reported that they had received direct encouragement from at least one person in the last year to engage in premarital sex, and at least half perceived that their father, siblings, other relatives and friends approved of premarital intercourse. A significantly greater proportion of men than of women reported that curiosity or gaining experience motivated their sexual debut (61% vs. 21%). Men perceived themselves to have a higher risk of unplanned and unprotected sex than did women. In contrast, women held more negative attitudes toward premarital sex and were more often discouraged by parents or siblings from engaging in sex. CONCLUSIONS: Reproductive health programs for young Nicaraguans need to address gender-based double standards, which raise the risk of unplanned, unprotected sex and unintended pregnancy.  (+info)

(8/211) Acceptability of emergency contraception in Brazil, Chile, and Mexico. 2 - Facilitating factors versus obstacles.

A multi-center study was performed in Brazil, Chile, and Mexico to identify factors that may facilitate or hinder the introduction of emergency contraception (EC) as well as perceptions concerning emergency contraceptive pills. Background information on the socio-cultural, political, and legal context and the characteristics of reproductive health services was collected. The opinions of potential users and providers were obtained through discussion groups, and those of authorities and policymakers through semi-structured interviews. Barriers to introduction included: perception of EC as an abortifacient, opposition by the Catholic Church, limited recognition of sexual and reproductive rights, limited sex education, and insensitivity to gender issues. Facilitating factors were: perception of EC as a method that would prevent abortion and pregnancy among adolescents and rape victims; interest in the method shown by potential users as well as by some providers and authorities. It appears possible to reduce barriers through support from segments of society committed to improving sexual and reproductive health and adequate training of health care providers.  (+info)

How are the adult mental health services compared to child and adolescent mental health services in the UK?


  • I've been in mental health services since i was 11. I'm 17 now n 18 later this year. I've found child and adolescent mental health services useless up to this point. So i guess i'm just wondering if there's better care provided by the adult team?
  • Child and adolescent services in the UK are so **** I was in CAHMS since I was 10 and they never helped one bit but adult services aren't so great either. I'm 18 now and I have only just been taken seriously after being hospitalized and finally I have a diagnosis but they do not listen, the UK are hopeless in health care because its free. I hope you get the help you need, good luck x


What mental health services could you benefit from?


  • Hi, I'm conducting an informal survey for mental health services, my question is, if you were to receive counseling or assistance from a mental health services provider, what would you want? For example if you are depressed, what kind of attention/care would you hope to get? I appreciate your time. Thanks!
  • I am already on medication for both BiPolar and anxiety, so I suppose that talk therapy about the causes of my episodes would be helpful, too.


What is the purpose of student health services at college?


  • Wondering why they are there, is it a nurse or what? And when would you go to see them? I was feeling really dizzy the other day and was going to go to have them check my blood pressure heart rate but wasn't sure what they were really there for. LOL First year at college. Just diagnosed with a rare, fatal lung/heart disease, not many doctors or nurses know about so not even sure if the health services at my college can help me if I have an issue while in class.
  • Student Health Services is your line of protection away at school. If the school you attend is large, there is probably more than one nurse. The nurse may be an LVN(licensed vocational nurse)that dispenses health care. Surely the Health Services has a doctor, but the doctor may be on call for emergencies. I remember when I was a freshman, I got my penis caught in my pants zipper and could not release the zipper. I placed a towel around my waist and walked to the health-services building. The nurse was attractive, and the last person I wanted to show my stuck penis was she. She tried to remove my penis without success, so she called the doctor. The doctor also tried to release my penis from the zipper, but my penis would not move. The doctor filled a syringe with a solution like Novcaine and injected a small amount around my penis. In 15 minutes, my penis was numb, and the doctor had to force my penis from the zipper. The glan of my penis was cut, and the doctor bandaged my penis, gave me a Tetanus shot and sent me to my apartment. The doctor advised me to wear a Kotex around my penis until healed. Sorry for the long description, but I had to explain. Harrald


Is health services administration in healthcare or business?


  • Is health services administration in healthcare or business? Which field is it in? Im going to do my bachelors in Health Services Administration. But the problem is I dont know what to do after. I was thinking getting a joint degree in MHSA/MBA or get a masters in public health with a specilization in health policy/ management. Which degree would be best? And as for my title would the bachelors major be considered in healthcare or business? Is the hiring outlook good?
  • Good Question. http://www.bls.gov/oco/ocos014.htm It's Health Care Management and it requires the knowledge of business and health care administration. I think it is in it's own category.


Who are the institutions here in Columbus, Texas that provide mental health services?


  • I don't want to think that I am schizophrenic or I suffer from bipolar disorder but I don't understand myself. Sometimes I feel so happy and then after a while, I feel so depressed. I know my situation isn't common but I think I need medication. Although people may laugh at me or something, I believe I have to be honest about my condition. I hope my depression isn't serious... Please tell me the the institutions here in Columbus that give mental health services. Thank you very much.
  • Don't feel so bad about it. The fact that you recognize that you have a problem means that you're sane! It's okay to consult an expert to know what is happening to you. Below are the sources that I think can help you find a good institution. You can also browse the yellow pages or ask for the help of your friends to make your burden lighter. Good luck.

Where can i read stories of young people's experiences of mental health services?


  • Is there anywhere where i can read about the experiences of young people who have been involved with the mental health services? Specifically i am looking for the experiences of 17 year old males involved with CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services), but experiances outside of this criteria will be helpful too. I am looking to put their feedback into part of a presentation on the problems young people with mental health problems face.
  • Have you tried Youngminds.org.uk It might have something - there are experiences of children - not sure how old.


Are county health and human social services primarily only for women, children and the elderly?


  • I am working class and couldn’t afford mental health services for counseling on my own. I called county social services but unless I was a police code 5150, there didn’t seem to be any social services counseling. Instead the primary chunk of social services seemed geared only towards mothers with children, children themselves, the chronically homeless, addicts, or the elderly. Is it a mistake for childless adult males, who aren’t suicidal but need mental health counseling, to seek county services?
  • It's never a mistake to try. Whether you qualify depends on your county. Usually there are some public mental health programs. For some, you have to be on public assistance. It depends a lot on where you are. I think you are in CA because you reference a CA police code. Look for the number for mental health services in your county. If they say you don't qualify, ask for referrals to other low cost providers- they should have phone numbers. Consider looking outside of public services, too. Often, clinics associated with universities will offer discounted/sliding scale services. Some non-profits also offer sliding scale fees. I worked for a CA non-profit in the high desert that offered services by intern therapists (Master's trained) for $1 a session.
