  • AIDS
  • OBJECTIVES: HIV/AIDS surveillance methods are under revision as the diversity of HIV epidemics is becoming more apparent. (arctichealth.org)
  • RESULTS: The scope of HIV/AIDS surveillance needs to be broadened following principles of SGS. (arctichealth.org)
  • CONCLUSIONS: The suggested approach should lead to more complete and timely information for public health interventions, however there is a clear need for comparative validation studies to assess the validity, reliability and cost-effectiveness of traditional and enhanced HIV/AIDS surveillance systems.

  • In 1998, on November 30, the government issues a 13-year plan (1998-2010) on the prevention and control of HIV/AIDS, which sets a target to keep the HIV positive population below 1.5 million, called Medium-long Term Plan on Prevention and Control of HIV/AIDS (1998-2010). (wikipedia.org)
  • incidence
  • Combined with a proficient and reasonably well-equipped laboratory, passive ILI surveillance can provide information on seasonal trends, give early indication of increased disease incidence and lead to typing of circulating influenza viruses, including variant strains considered for inclusion in future vaccines against novel influenza A viruses with pandemic potential. (who.int)
  • To estimate the association between UV index, latitude, and melanoma incidence in different racial and ethnic populations in a high-quality national data set. (nih.gov)
  • Pearson correlation coefficients and regression coefficients were used to estimate the relationship of age-adjusted melanoma incidence rates (2000 US standard population) with the UV index or latitude within racial and ethnic groups. (nih.gov)
  • No evidence to support the association of UV exposure and melanoma incidence in black or Hispanic populations was found. (nih.gov)
  • In addition to the ageing of the population, China is experiencing dramatic transformations in many social and economic conditions that will continue to increase the incidence of major chronic diseases. (wikipedia.org)
  • timely
  • The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry maintains the National ALS Registry and funded state and metropolitan surveillance projects to obtain reliable, timely information about ALS in defined geographic areas. (cdc.gov)
  • respiratory
  • Disease surveillance, essential for guiding the public health response to influenza and other respiratory diseases, allows for early case detection and for the implementation of preventive measures. (who.int)
  • Population-based approaches provide ideal platforms for the development of transmission models and for future testing of community control measures directed at influenza and other respiratory diseases, including both pharmaceutical (e.g. influenza vaccination) and non-pharmaceutical (e.g. hand washing) interventions. (who.int)

FBI (#SACV11-00301 aka #SA11-CV0-00301CJC) was a 2011 class action lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Central District of California, alleging unconstitutional law enforcement surveillance, which was dismissed in 2012 due to a state secrets privilege defense.

  • Type
  • CONCLUSIONS: Geographic atrophy is the predominant type of AMD in Iceland, and the ratio of GA to neovascular AMD is higher than in racially similar populations. (arctichealth.org)
  • risk
  • Eight high-risk populations are described in-depth with recommended surveillance techniques. (who.int)
  • The decrease in smoking is the only encouraging risk factor trend, and is consistent with the plateau of tobacco consumption over this same period in the face of a rising adult population, as has occurred in other countries where tobacco taxes have been raised sharply. (wikipedia.org)
  • disease
  • Further, it has been established that "natural," (that is to say, carried) populations of meningococci are highly diverse, with a minority of genotypes (the "hyperinvasive lineages") being responsible for the majority of disease ( 3 ). (springer.com)
  • measures
  • Sir Bonar" regularly expresses strong support for the war on drugs, for the construction of physical protection measures around Whitehall ("Bonar's Bollards") and for all forms of total population surveillance. (wikipedia.org)
