*  Q & A: The CAMELIA Clinical Trial
CAMELIA, which stands for Cambodian Early versus Late Introduction of Antiretroviral Drugs, was a Phase III clinical trial designed to determine the best time to start anti-HIV therapy in people who are co-infected with HIV and tuberculosis TB, who have just begun treatment for TB, and whose immune systems are severely damaged by HIV. The trial, also known as ANRS 1295, compared whether the chance of survival is greater if such individuals start taking an anti-HIV drug cocktail two weeks after beginning treatment for TB or eight weeks after beginning treatment for TB. When CAMELIA was designed, the current World Health Organization recommendation was that HIV-infected individuals with newly diagnosed TB and very weak immune systems should begin taking anti-HIV treatment known as highly active antiretroviral therapy HAART between two and eight weeks after starting TB treatment. Then they were assigned at random to begin HAART either two weeks after starting TB treatment or eight weeks after ...

Comparison of built-up areas and woodland shown by the OS 1:50,000 map data and the CEH data for the Ribble basin also revealed substantial misclassification. These models suggest that built-up land is the key source of faecal indicator organisms in the Ribble drainage basin.

It comes at the beginning of a year during which the World Health Organization will celebrate its 50th Anniversary, and also in a year in which a new global health policy, Health for All in the 21 st Century, is scheduled to be adopted by the World Health Assembly. I will outline the origins of the definition of health that is used in the WHO Constitution-, discuss common difficulties with the definition of health; highlight progress made towards the attainment of health; and end with some comments on the future challenges that we face in health matters for the next century. By the end of the eighteenth century, public health and medical advances had laid the basis for people to believe that a long life could be obtained through societal actions, as well as through the actions of individuals. Thus it was that over half a century ago, the founders of the World Health Organization defined health as "a state ...

The League of Nations Health Organization was established following the First World War inside the League of Nations framework, although it did not subsume other health organizations. During the United Nations Conference on International Organization, references to health had been incorporated into the United Nations Charter at the request of Brazil. 3 In February 1946, the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations helped draft the constitution of the new body.

A dilute solution of insecticide is sprayed on the inside walls of certain types of dwellings—those with walls made from porous materials such as mud or wood but not plaster as in city dwellings. In 2008, 44 countries employed IRS as a malaria control strategy. Several pesticides have historically been used for IRS, the first and most well-known being DDT.

Sports PT Blog Team. By: Kevin Brown PT, DPT 1. Physical activity helps with the effects of cancer treatments. Studies have indicated a relationship between higher physical activity levels and lower mortality rates in cancer survivors. A recent meta-analysis reported that, post-diagnosis, physical activity reduced breast cancer deaths by 34%, and all other cancer-related causes of mortality by 41%. The Nurses’ Health Study reported 50% fewer cancer recurrences in women who exercised more than three hours per week. Among people who have had colorectal cancer, a study found a 50% lower rate of recurrence – and related death – in those who exercised more than six hours per week. Several large population studies have identified a strong association between lower levels of physical activity and higher cancer mortality. World Health Organization recommendations say that undertaking 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity a week can reduce the risk of breast and colon ...

Last week the WHO issued the advice, amid increasing concern from scientists that high sugar intake is fuelling obesity and tooth decay. But the chairman of a UK committee on nutrition said Government officials in this country will not act on the WHO guidance, but instead follow the advice of his panel. The disclosure is likely to trigger controversy, because Professor Ian Macdonald, a nutritionist who has worked for Coca-Cola and Mars, is among five of eight members of the panel who have been accused by anti-sugar campaigners of ...

Entries By Category breast cancer. A few weeks ago I blogged about a report questioning whether it's really best for all babies to be exclusively breast-fed until they're 6 months old, as do World Health Organization recommendations. guidelines call for feeding babies nothing but breast milk until they're between 4 months and 6 months old, or as close to 6 months as possible. It found that among babies who had been formula-fed or who had been weaned by 4 months, those who were introduced to solid foods before 4 months were at greatly increased risk of being obese at age 3. The timing of introduction of solid foods to breast-fed babies didn't appear to affect their risk of obesity. The authors say their work supports existing recommendations that solid foods not be introduced to babies until at least 4 months, at least for babies who are fed formula or are breast-fed for less than four months. The study explains: Our data suggest that increased adherence to the American Academy of Pediatrics ...

The World Health Organization WHO is again in the spotlight and being accused of accepting kickbacks from the pharmaceutical industry. In return for monetary compensation, the WHO had to issue an H1N1 or “swine flu” pandemic worldwide. The Health Advisory Board of the WHO made the decision to issue a worldwide statement, declaring the H1N1 threat a pandemic and encouraging countries to stockpile vaccines to protect the population from contact or aerosol contamination. All companies promised financial kickbacks after a pandemic was officially declared by the WHO resulting in multi billion dollar gains for the pharmaceutical companies. The scheme, as set up by the WHO’s Health Advisory Board was a five step process. Margaret Chan, was asked to release the names of ...

(1/3145) Mumps and mumps vaccine: a global review.

Mumps is an acute infectious disease caused by a paramyxovirus. Although the disease is usually mild, up to 10% of patients can develop aseptic meningitis; a less common but more serious complication is encephalitis, which can result in death or disability. Permanent deafness, orchitis, and pancreatitis are other untoward effects of mumps. Based on data reported to WHO up to April 1998, mumps vaccine is routinely used by national immunization programmes in 82 countries/areas: 23 (92%) of 25 developed countries, 19 (86%) of 22 countries with economies in transition (mainly the Newly Independent States of the former Soviet Union), and 40 (24%) of 168 developing countries. Countries that have achieved high coverage have shown a rapid decline in mumps morbidity. Furthermore, in many of these countries, mumps-associated encephalitis and deafness have nearly vanished. This review considers the disease burden due to mumps; summarizes studies on the immunogenicity, efficacy, and safety of different strains of mumps vaccine; and highlights lessons learned about implementing mumps immunization in different countries. Countries already using mumps vaccine should monitor immunization coverage and establish routine mumps surveillance with investigation of outbreaks. Where mumps is targeted for elimination, countries need to add a second dose of mumps vaccine for children, keeping in mind that the disease may still occur in susceptible adults.  (+info)

(2/3145) Eradication: lessons from the past.

The declaration in 1980 that smallpox had been eradicated reawakened interest in disease eradication as a public health strategy. The smallpox programme's success derived, in part, from lessons learned from the preceding costly failure of the malaria eradication campaign. In turn, the smallpox programme offered important lessons with respect to other prospective disease control programmes, and these have been effectively applied in the two current global eradication initiatives, those against poliomyelitis and dracunculiasis. Taking this theme a step further, there are those who would now focus on the development of an inventory of diseases which might, one by one, be targeted either for eradication or elimination. This approach, while interesting, fails to recognize many of the important lessons learned and their broad implications for contemporary disease control programmes worldwide.  (+info)

(3/3145) The principles of disease elimination and eradication.

The Dahlem Workshop discussed the hierarchy of possible public health interventions in dealing with infectious diseases, which were defined as control, elimination of disease, elimination of infections, eradication, and extinction. The indicators of eradicability were the availability of effective interventions and practical diagnostic tools and the essential need for humans in the life-cycle of the agent. Since health resources are limited, decisions have to be made as to whether their use for an elimination or eradication programme is preferable to their use elsewhere. The costs and benefits of global eradication programmes concern direct effects on morbidity and mortality and consequent effects on the health care system. The success of any disease eradication initiative depends strongly on the level of societal and political commitment, with a key role for the World Health Assembly. Eradication and ongoing programmes constitute potentially complementary approaches to public health. Elimination and eradication are the ultimate goals of public health, evolving naturally from disease control. The basic question is whether these goals are to be achieved in the present or some future generation.  (+info)

(4/3145) Disease eradication and health systems development.

This article provides a framework for the design of future eradication programmes so that the greatest benefit accrues to health systems development from the implementation of such programmes. The framework focuses on weak and fragile health systems and assumes that eradication leads to the cessation of the intervention required to eradicate the disease. Five major components of health systems are identified and key elements which are of particular relevance to eradication initiatives are defined. The dearth of documentation which can provide "lessons learned" in this area is illustrated with a brief review of the literature. Opportunities and threats, which can be addressed during the design of eradication programmes, are described and a number of recommendations are outlined. It is emphasized that this framework pertains to eradication programmes but may be useful in attempts to coordinate vertical and horizontal disease control activities for maximum mutual benefits.  (+info)

(5/3145) Perspectives from micronutrient malnutrition elimination/eradication programmes.

Micronutrient malnutrition cannot be eradicated, but the elimination and control of iron, vitamin A and iodine deficiencies and their health-related consequences as public health problems are currently the targets of global programmes. Remarkable progress is occurring in the control of goitre and xerophthalmia, but iron-deficiency anaemia (IDA) has been less responsive to prevention and control efforts. Subclinical consequences of micronutrient deficiencies, i.e. "hidden hunger", include compromised immune functions that increase the risk of morbidity and mortality, impaired cognitive development and growth, and reduced reproductive and work capacity and performance. The implications are obvious for human health and national and global economic and social development. Mixes of affordable interventions are available which, when appropriately adapted to resource availability and context, are proven to be effective. These include both food-based interventions, particularly fortification programmes, such as salt iodization, and use of concentrated micronutrient supplements. A mix of accompanying programmes for infection control, community participation, including education, communication and information exchange, and private sector involvement are lessons learned for overcoming deterrents and sustaining progress towards elimination.  (+info)

(6/3145) Perspectives from the dracunculiasis eradication programme.

After a slow beginning in association with the International Drinking Water Supply and Sanitation Decade (1981-1990), the global Dracunculiasis Eradication Programme has reduced the incidence of dracunculiasis by nearly 97%, from an estimated 3.2 million cases in 1986 to less than 100,000 cases in 1997. Over half of the remaining cases are in Sudan. In addition, the programme has already produced many indirect benefits such as improved agricultural production and school attendance, extensive provision of clean drinking-water, mobilization of endemic communities, and improved care of infants. Most workers in the campaign have other responsibilities in their communities or ministries of health besides dracunculiasis eradication.  (+info)

(7/3145) Perspectives from the global poliomyelitis eradication initiative.

Ten years after the year 2000 target was set by the World Health Assembly, the global poliomyelitis eradication effort has made significant progress towards that goal. The success of the initiative is built on political commitment within the endemic countries. A partnership of international organizations and donor countries works to support the work of the countries. Interagency coordinating committees are used to ensure that all country needs are met and to avoid duplication of donor effort. Private sector support has greatly expanded the resources available at both the national and international level. At the programmatic level, rapid implementation of surveillance is the key to success, but the difficulty of building effective surveillance programmes is often underestimated. Mass immunization campaigns must be carefully planned with resources mobilized well in advance. Programme strategies should be simple, clear and concise. While improvements in strategy and technology should be continuously sought, changes should be introduced only after careful consideration. Careful consideration should be given in the planning phases of a disease control initiative on how the initiative can be used to support other health initiatives.  (+info)

(8/3145) Candidate noninfectious disease conditions.

Important micronutrient deficiencies in at-risk populations can be addressed simultaneously with programmatically cost-effective results. Because of the interaction between many micronutrients, this would also be biologically effective. With adequate investment and political support, the chances of eliminating iodine deficiency as a problem in women of reproductive age and young children and of eliminating vitamin A deficiency as a problem in young children in the future are high. To eliminate iron deficiency and folic-acid-dependent neural tube defects (FADNTDs) in low-income populations, a new set of approaches will have to be developed. These same approaches, if successful, could be used to tackle other important micronutrient deficiencies.  (+info)

What World Health Organization(WHO) has to say about microwave radiation or non-ionizing?


  • Radio waves, microwaves, and infrared all belong to the electromagnetic radiation spectrum. These terms references ranges radiation frequencies we use every day in our wireless networking environments. However, the word "radiation" strikes fear in many people. What are the report from World Health Organization(WHO) had to say about microwave radiation or non-ionizing radiation?
  • There are, were, many studies, not much positive proof. Electromagnetic is a unknown source but used in many products, there is no way to positively measure this or try to prove it' s harm to man. High line wires that carry hundreds of thousands of volts, micro waves, cell phones, objects like these all are under consideration for studies for dangers but with no positive proof ?


Health insurance company is asking my health records before making a decision. Is it good to give consent?


  • Has anybody heard about world health insurance company? its asking for my doctor records. I am concerned that they will end up on MIB or other insurance companies. Also, isnt it weird asking for records for a health insurance? I thought they only do that for life and disability insurances.
  • Ask them what they will do with the information completely, record the conversation, and if you feel like they sold it, bring your tape to court. (If they lied to u). Anyway in the netherlands we are all insured, I think you will be all insured aswell, and wont be declined in 4 years. You wait 4 years or just give it to them.


How do you balance what's best for babies with what is possible in modern life?


  • There are lots of directions you could take that question, but what inspires it is the World Health Organization's recommendation that babies are exlusively breastfed for 6 months, and then continue to breastfeed for the first 2+ years. If you're a stay at home mother of one, it would be challenging. But how are modern women with outside jobs that oftentimes allow for only 4-6 weeks of maternity leave to manage?
  • The thing a lot of people forget about the World Health Organization is that they are the WORLD Health Organization, which means their recommendations are not just for people in modern nations but for a lot of third world and developing nations as well. For example, if you live in China you will get a bigger benefit from breastfeeding than an American mother would because the formula in China is very sub-par compared to what's available here. If you live in rural Africa and don't have a lot of food available, breastfeeding for 2+ years might be necessary to ensure your child gets enough nutrition because they don't have the variety of foods there that we have. Another thing people forget is that these are RECCOMENDATIONS, not "the WHO says your kid will be sickly and/or die if you don't do this." What's best for your baby is what works. If you can't manage breastfeeding and work then it's better to formula feed than to quit if you need the money. Is a breastfed baby in poverty better than a formula fed baby who's parents can pay the mortgage?


The World Health Organization raised the Swine Flu level of alert to 5. What happens when it gets to 6?


  • The World Health Organization raised the Swine Flu level of alert to 5. 6 is the highest it can go, and when it does, it is officially a 'pandemic'. What happens if they raise it to 6? Than you and God Bless. xxx
  • All schools and businesses close and everyone starts wearing masks. Look for this to happen within a week =/


What is the appropriate age to stop breastfeeding?


  • The World Health Organization says you should breastfeed until at least the age of two years.... However, I feel that our culture tells women to stop much sooner. What do you think is the appropriate age to stop?
  • Doctors would tell you to breastfeed for at least 6 months. The WHO says two years, as you said. Our culture? Well, some people can't tolerate seeing women breastfeed a walking talking toddler (especially in public). Breastfeeding activists would tell you to let your babies "self-wean" or decide for themselves when to stop. While feminists might say it is you who should decide when to stop, and at your own chosen time. I'm sure you know all the benefits of breastfeeding (antibodies, calming, comforting, healthier, smarter, etc,etc), but keep in mind that sometimes weaning is harder for the mothers then for the babies. But then again, it's not the same for everyone. People have their own reasons why and when they stop, some earlier, some later. In the end, it really is up to you and your baby's readiness to wean.


What is the Difference between WHO and CDC?


  • What is the difference between the World Health Organization and Center for Disease Control? What do each of them do? Please include proof as well so I know you're not making up crap.
  • The WHO is part of the UN. It's concerned with epidemic control but also with lots of other health problems around the world. The CDC is part of the US govenrment and is only concerned with controlling possible epidemics in the US. World health problems are very different from US health problems. There are horrible diseases in third world countries that we just don't have in the US, we don't even know about them. So the CDC doesn't concern itself with them. Like dracunculiasis, more commonly known as Guinea worm disease, and schistosomiasis, sometimes called 'snail fever'. These are both horrible parasite-based diseases that are common in poorer countries. I don't have sites to cite because I know these things from reading and learning about them. If you want to know more, look CDC and WHO up in Wikipedia or Google them, also the names of the diseases I mentioned (frankly, I don't really even want to describe them.)


What do you all think about the current pandemic?


  • So the World Health Organization has moved to level 6 which is a pandemic. Do you think that the current pandemic will worsen? If so when. Also share any comments about what you think.
  • Because of our lack of natural resistance to this virus, it's possible that up to 30 percent of the population will be infected. Not a big deal unless the virus mutates or re-assorts itself (by swapping genetic material with other viruses). The southern hemisphere, now entering their flu season, will be one place to watch. Another place will be Asia - particularly Indonesia, Vietnam and Thailand - if the virus is going to re-assort it is most likely to happen there. The big unknown is how this virus will evolve. It could evolve to become less or more dangerous, it could evolve it's own immunity to current medications. It could also evolve it's genetic structure so that the vaccination that is currently being developed will no longer work. Anyone who says they know "for sure" what will happen is a kook. One other place that needs to be watched is Egypt. They've had a recent spike in Avian Flu. The greatest danger exists in what potentially might happen when large number of Swine Flu infections start to put pressure on the Avian Flu. The nightmare scenario would be a virus that is as pathogenic as the Avian Flu and as contagious as Swine Flu. Still, there's no point in worrying about something you can't control. :)
