*  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 starting TB treatme...

... 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 of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity...

Its establishment followed a period of discussions and consultation following World War II and the formation of the United Nations, of which it formed part. An international sanitary conference was held in Venice in 1892, prompted in part by the spread of Asiatic cholera earlier in that century. 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.

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 cancers. Research has...

Adviser who worked for Coca-Cola and Mars says Government will follow guidance from his Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition By Laura Donnelly, Health Editor A Government adviser who has worked for confectionery giants says Britain will not act on World Health Organisation recommendations to cut people’s sugar intake by half. 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 “worryingly close” ties wi...

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 guidelines has the...

*  .. Does Increased Chewing Reduce Food Intake? .. 8 Comments
Does Increased Chewing Reduce Food Intake. Does Increased Chewing Reduce Food Intake. These data are certainly compatible with the hypothesis that increasing the number of chews per bite might reduce food intake and may thus assist in body-weight management. Obviously, whether not increased chewing of each bite will actually assist in sustainable weight loss is another question – in fact, one that still needs to be answered. Increasing the Number of Chews before Swallowing Reduces Meal Size in Normal-Weight, Overweight, and Obese Adults. Does Increased Chewing Reduce Food Intake. Post a Reply. Formerly overweight or obese individuals who are currently at a normal weight, and have incorporated the good health and weight management habits of physical activity and good nutrition over a long period of time, let’s say 5 or more years, have no emotional health issues?”. However, you seem to repeatedly diminish the overall long term approach of changing lifestyle habits, specifically, daily physical activity and go...

The first appearance of this type of flu was in Hong Kong during 1997. As of July 21, 2005, one hundred and nine cases of human infection have been confirmed resulting in fifty five deaths outside of China reports the Centers for Disease Con...

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 all the members of her advisory board but insisted that the secrecy was ...

(1/2640) Is hospital care involved in inequalities in coronary heart disease mortality? Results from the French WHO-MONICA Project in men aged 30-64.

OBJECTIVES: The goal of the study was to assess whether possible disparities in coronary heart disease (CHD) management between occupational categories (OC) in men might be observed and contribute to the increasing inequalities in CHD morbidity and mortality reported in France. METHODS: The data from the three registers of the French MONICA Collaborative Centres (MCC-Lille, MCC-Strasbourg, and MCC-Toulouse) were analysed during two period: 1985-87 and 1989-91. Acute myocardial infarctions and coronary deaths concerning men, aged 30-64 years, were included. Non-professionally active and retired men were excluded. Results were adjusted for age and MCC, using a logistic regression analysis. RESULTS: 605 and 695 events were analysed for 1985-87 and 1989-91, respectively. Out of hospital cardiac arrests, with or without cardiac resuscitation, and 28 day case fatality rates were lower among upper executives in both periods. A coronarography before the acute event had been performed more frequently in men of this category and the proportion of events that could be hospitalised was higher among them. In both periods, the management of acute myocardial infarctions in hospital and prescriptions on discharge were similar among occupational categories. CONCLUSIONS: For patients who could be admitted to hospital, the management was found to be similar among OCs, as was the 28 day case fatality rate among the hospitalised patients. In contrast, lower prognosis and higher probability of being hospitalised after the event among some categories suggest that pre-hospital care and the patient's conditions before the event are the primary factors involved.  (+info)

(2/2640) Chlamydia pneumoniae antibodies are associated with an atherogenic lipid profile.

OBJECTIVE: To determine, within a representative population group of men and women, whether alteration of the lipid profile might underlie the reported association between Chlamydia pneumoniae and ischaemic heart disease. DESIGN AND SETTING: Cross sectional survey in an area with a high incidence of ischaemic heart disease. SUBJECTS: 400 randomly selected participants in the World Health Organisation MONICA project's third population survey in Northern Ireland. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Stored sera were examined by microimmunofluorescence for IgG antibodies to C pneumoniae at a dilution of 1 in 64. Mean total and high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol were compared between seropositive and seronegative individuals with adjustment for age, measures of socioeconomic status, smoking habit, alcohol consumption, body mass index, and the season during which blood had been taken. RESULTS: In seropositive men, adjusted mean serum total cholesterol and HDL cholesterol were 0.5 mmol/l (9.2%) higher and 0.11 mmol/l (9.3%) lower, respectively, than in seronegative men. Differences in women did not achieve statistical significance, but both total cholesterol and HDL cholesterol were higher (3.6% and 5.8%, respectively) in seropositive than in seronegative individuals. CONCLUSIONS: There is serological evidence that C pneumoniae infection is associated with an atherogenic lipid profile in men. Altered lipid levels may underlie the association between C pneumoniae and ischaemic heart disease.  (+info)

(3/2640) Diagnosing anaemia in pregnancy in rural clinics: assessing the potential of the Haemoglobin Colour Scale.

Anaemia in pregnancy is a common and severe problem in many developing countries. Because of lack of resources and staff motivation, screening for anaemia is often solely by clinical examination of the conjunctiva or is not carried out at all. A new colour scale for the estimation of haemoglobin concentration has been developed by WHO. The present study compares the results obtained using the new colour scale on 729 women visiting rural antenatal clinics in Malawi with those obtained by HemoCue haemoglobinometer and electronic Coulter Counter and with the assessment of anaemia by clinical examination of the conjunctiva. Sensitivity using the colour scale was consistently better than for conjunctival inspection alone and interobserver agreement and agreement with Coulter Counter measurements was good. The Haemoglobin Colour Scale is simple to use, well accepted, cheap and gives immediate results. It shows considerable potential for use in screening for anaemia in antenatal clinics in settings where resources are limited.  (+info)

(5/2640) 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)

(6/2640) Candidate parasitic diseases.

This paper discusses five parasitic diseases: American trypanosomiasis (Chagas disease), dracunculiasis, lymphatic filariasis, onchocerciasis and schistosomiasis. The available technology and health infrastructures in developing countries permit the eradication of dracunculiasis and the elimination of lymphatic filariasis due to Wuchereria bancrofti. Blindness due to onchocerciasis and transmission of this disease will be prevented in eleven West African countries; transmission of Chagas disease will be interrupted. A well-coordinated international effort is required to ensure that scarce resources are not wasted, efforts are not duplicated, and planned national programmes are well supported.  (+info)

(8/2640) The future role of international agencies in control of acute respiratory tract infections.

Achievements in the control of acute respiratory infection (ARI) owe much to international collaboration in research, education, and delivery of services. This article highlights some of the current activities of the many international agencies involved and summarizes thoughts on their future roles. Key recent scientific advances include better surveillance, new and improved vaccines, refinement of standard clinical management plans and behavioral change techniques, and demonstration of the effectiveness of their application. Agencies involved include the World Health Organization, the International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease, national government agencies for overseas aid, many academic departments, and professional lung health associations. However, much remains to be done, especially in collaborative research, in the devising, implementing, and evaluating of health care delivery systems in low-income countries, and in mobilizing political will and resources. These are tasks beyond the capacity of any lone agency. Success will depend on how effectively we collaborate.  (+info)

5% to 20% of the population gets the flu; 
more than 200,000 people are hospitalized from flu-related complications; and 
about 36,000 people die from flu-related causes.

Make up your own mind ...its a huge cover up of somthin?
12 deaths and we are on a level 5 alert?

440000 people die from smoking every year and all we do is raise the tax on cigs?.......get real 

2.2million people die in africa from aids.....

12 people from swine flu and the president wants 2.1 billion$ 

If u beleve all this swine b.s. I got som ocean front property in Az. for sale....I only except Pay/Pal:)


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 =/


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?


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 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.

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.)


How long did you breastfeed your child/children? Did you allow your child to self-wean in toddlerhood?


My 22 month old son is still nursing and I am planning to let him self-wean. I find though that despite the recommendations of the World Health Organization and countless studies... most women don't nurse this long. I'm just curious to see how long other mothers nursed their babies. And why did they nurse for that length of time?
----------

My son weaned himself at 8 months. When I worked, he got bottles, and that ended up being all he wanted. He Only breastfed at night from 6-8 months, and once he slept through the night, he was done.
