Cancer incidence in the south Asian population of England (1990-92). (1/700)

Cancer incidence among English south Asians (residents in England with ethnic origins in India, Pakistan or Bangladesh) is described and compared with non-south Asian and Indian subcontinent rates. The setting for the study was areas covered by Thames, Trent, West Midlands and Yorkshire cancer registries. The study identified 356 555 cases of incident cancer (ICD9:140-208) registered between 1990 and 1992, including 3845 classified as English south Asian. The main outcome measures were age specific and directly standardized incidence rates for all cancer sites (ICD9:140-208). English south Asian incidence rates for all sites combined were significantly lower than non-south Asian rates but higher than Indian subcontinent rates. English south Asian rates were substantially higher than Indian subcontinent rates for a number of common sites including lung cancer in males, breast cancer in females and lymphoma in both sexes. English south Asian rates for childhood and early adult cancer (0-29 years) were similar or higher than non-south Asian rates. English south Asian rates were significantly higher than non-south Asian rates for Hodgkin's disease in males, cancer of the tongue, mouth, oesophagus, thyroid gland and myeloid leukaemia in females, and cancer of the hypopharynx, liver and gall bladder in both sexes. The results are consistent with a transition from the lower cancer risk of the country of ethnic origin to that of the country of residence. They suggest that detrimental changes in lifestyle and other exposures have occurred in the migrant south Asian population.  (+info)

Partial remission phase of diabetes in children younger than age 10 years. (2/700)

There is renewed interest in the phase of partial remission in recently diagnosed diabetes because of the potential for pharmacological and immune intervention to preserve beta cell function. 95 children younger than 10 years were investigated to assess the influence of age, sex, diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), admission at diagnosis, and ethnicity on the frequency of remission and insulin requirements during the first two years after diagnosis. Partial remission was defined as a requirement of insulin < 0.5 U/kg body weight/day. There was partial remission in 41 patients, with no differences for children aged 2-4 years and those aged 5-9 years. None of the five children aged < 2 years remitted. Forty five of 95 children were admitted to hospital at diagnosis, of whom 26 of 45 had DKA (blood pH < 7.25). In this number of children we were unable to show a statistical difference in the rate of remission with respect to DKA, admission to hospital at diagnosis, sex, or South Asian ethnic background. There were no differences in insulin requirements between the different groups by the end of two years and at that time seven of the children required insulin < 0.5 U/kg/day. The results suggest that even in preschool children there is potential for attempting to preserve beta cell function.  (+info)

Multicentric origin of hemochromatosis gene (HFE) mutations. (3/700)

Genetic hemochromatosis (GH) is believed to be a disease restricted to those of European ancestry. In northwestern Europe, >80% of GH patients are homozygous for one mutation, the substitution of tyrosine for cysteine at position 282 (C282Y) in the unprocessed protein. In a proportion of GH patients, two mutations are present, C282Y and H63D. The clinical significance of this second mutation is such that it appears to predispose 1%-2% of compound heterozygotes to expression of the disease. The distribution of the two mutations differ, C282Y being limited to those of northwestern European ancestry and H63D being found at allele frequencies>5%, in Europe, in countries bordering the Mediterranean, in the Middle East, and in the Indian subcontinent. The C282Y mutation occurs on a haplotype that extends +info)

Cancer mortality in East and Southeast Asian migrants to New South Wales, Australia, 1975-1995. (4/700)

Routinely collected data for New South Wales were used to analyse cancer mortality in migrants born in East or Southeast Asia according to duration of residence in Australia. A case-control approach compared deaths from cancer at particular sites with deaths from all other cancers, adjusting for age, sex and calendar period. Compared with the Australian-born, these Asian migrants had a 30-fold higher risk of dying from nasopharyngeal cancer in the first 2 decades of residence, falling to ninefold after 30 years, and for deaths from liver cancer, a 12-fold risk in the first 2 decades, falling to threefold after 30 years. The initial lower risk from colorectal, breast or prostate cancers later converged towards the Australian-born level, the change being apparent in the third decade after migration. The relative risk of dying from lung cancer among these Asian migrants was above unity for each category of duration of stay for women, but at or below unity for men, with no trend in risk over time. An environmental or lifestyle influence for nasopharyngeal and liver cancers is suggested as well as for cancers of colon/rectum, breast and prostate.  (+info)

Multispecies Plasmodium infections of humans. (5/700)

We analyzed point-prevalence data from 19 recent studies of human populations in which either Plasmodium ovale or Plasmodium vivax co-occur with Plasmodium falciparum and Plasmodium malariae. Although the only statistical interactions among, sympatric congeners are pairwise, the frequencies of mixed-species infections relative to standard hypotheses of species sampling independence show no strong relation to overall malaria prevalence. The striking difference between the P. falciparum-P. malariae-P. ovale and the P. falciparum-P. malariae-P. vivax data is that the first typically shows a statistical surplus of mixed-species infections and the second a deficit. This suggests that the number of Plasmodium species present in a human population may be less important in determining the frequencies of mixed-species infections than is the identity of those species.  (+info)

Progress toward poliomyelitis eradication--South East Asia Region, 1997-1998. (6/700)

In 1988, the World Health Assembly resolved to eradicate poliomyelitis by 2000. To achieve this goal, in 1994 World Health Organization (WHO) South East Asia Region (SEAR) member countries accelerated implementation of polio eradication strategies. In 1994, Thailand became the region's first country to initiate National Immunization Days (NIDs), followed by Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Indonesia, and Sri Lanka (1995); Myanmar and Nepal (1996); and Democratic People's Republic (DPR) of Korea and Maldives (1997). This report summarizes the progress in achieving routine and supplemental vaccination coverage and surveillance for cases of acute flaccid paralysis (AFP) and the impact of these activities on polio eradication in the region.  (+info)

Barriers to meeting the mental health needs of the Chinese community. (7/700)

BACKGROUND: This study aimed to identify the barriers encountered by Chinese people with mental health needs in England which hindered their obtaining appropriate help from the National Health Service (NHS). METHODS: Attenders at Chinese community centres in health authority districts with resident Chinese population in excess of 2000 were invited to fill in a 12-item Chinese Health Questionnaire (12-CHQ). Individuals who scored two or above, indicating a high probability of a mental health problem, were invited to undertake a semi-structured interview. RESULTS: A total of 401 completed the 12-CHQ. Eighty-six (21.4 per cent) screened positive and 71 (82.6 per cent) agreed to be interviewed. Although 70 (98.6 per cent) were registered with a general practitioner (GP), there were long delays before they made contact with health professionals, and the GP was the first port of call for help in only 27 (38.6 per cent) interviewees. Fifty-two (74.3 per cent) had encountered difficulties when they sought professional help. The main barriers were language, interviewees' perceptions of symptoms as somatic rather than psychiatric in origin, lack of knowledge about statutory services, and lack of access to bilingual health professionals. Doctors, particularly GPs, were pivotal in the management of their conditions. The majority were prescribed psychiatric medication with only a small number in contact with community psychiatric services. Unemployment and social exclusion were common. Stigma associated with mental illness and limited knowledge in the community were identified as the causes for the widespread discrimination experienced by the interviewees. CONCLUSION: The mental health needs of these Chinese people were not adequately met by statutory services, nor could they rely on family and friends for care and support. Training for health service staff and access to health advocates are essential to maximize the effectiveness of health professional-patient contacts. The promotion of better understanding of mental illness by the Chinese community is important, and greater flexibility within the NHS is required to ensure those professionals with bilingual skills are used to the best effect.  (+info)

Serum dioxin and immunologic response in veterans of Operation Ranch Hand. (8/700)

The authors studied immune response and exposure to 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (dioxin) among veterans of Operation Ranch Hand, the US Air Force unit responsible for the aerial spraying of herbicides in Vietnam from 1962 to 1971. A comparison group of Air Force veterans who served in Southeast Asia but were not involved in spraying herbicides was included. The authors studied delayed-type hypersensitivity skin test responses to Candida albicans, mumps, Trichophyton, and a bacterial antigen made from lysed Staphylococcus aureus. Lymphocyte measurements included total lymphocyte counts; T-cell (CD3, CD4, CD5, and CD8), B-cell (CD20), and NK-cell (CD16 and CD56) subsets; and expression of the activation antigen CD25 on CD3 T cells. The authors quantitated the serum concentrations of immunoglobulin (Ig)A, IgG, and IgM; examined sera for the presence of monoclonal immunoglobulins (M proteins); and looked for a broad range of autoantibodies (rheumatoid factor, antinuclear antibody, smooth muscle autoantibody, mitochondrial autoantibody, parietal cell autoantibody, and thyroid microsomal autoantibodies). They measured the level of dioxin in 1987 or 1992, extrapolated the result to the time of service in Vietnam, and assigned each veteran to one of four exposure categories: Comparison and three Ranch Hand groups (Background, Low, or High). Overall, the authors found no evidence of a consistent relation between dioxin exposure category and immune system alteration.  (+info)

ASEAN Plus Three (APT) is a forum that functions as a coordinator of co-operation between the Association of Southeast Asian Nations and the three East Asia nations of China, Japan, and South Korea. Government leaders, ministers, and senior officials from the 10 members of the ASEAN and the three Northeast Asian states consult on an increasing range of issues.[4] The APT is the latest development of East Asian regional co-operation. In the past, proposals, such as South Koreas call for an Asian Common Market in 1970 and Japans 1988 suggestion for an Asian Network, have been made to bring closer regional co-operation.[5]. The first leaders meetings were held in 1996 and 1997 to deal with Asia-Europe Meeting issues, and China and Japan each wanted regular summit meetings with ASEAN members afterwards. The groups significance and importance was strengthened by the Asian Financial Crisis. In response to the crisis, ASEAN closely cooperated with China, Japan, and ROK. Since the implementation of ...
Regional autonomy . After the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) was formed in 1967 its members adopted two major approaches to relations with external powers. First, ASEAN member states promoted the concept of regional autonomy to prevent any one power from exercising hegemony over Southeast Asia. ASEANs assertion of regional autonomy took two firms. It involved the expansion of membership from its initial core of five to ten of Southeast Asias eleven states. 1 ASEANs assertion of regional autonomy also took the form of political declarations and treaties covering Southeast Asia as a whole such as the Declaration of a Zone of Peace, Freedom and Neutrality (1971), the ASEAN Treaty of Amity and Cooperation (1976) and the Southeast Asia Nuclear-Weapons Free Zone Treaty (1995). In recent years ASEAN has advanced the concept of regional autonomy by ratifying the ASEAN Charter and setting the goal of creating an ASEAN Community by 2015. ASEANs second approach in relations with ...

As originally defined, O. latipes was native to much of east and mainland southeast Asia, but in recent decades most of these populations have been split off as separate species based on morphological (morphometrics and meristics) and genetic evidence.[3][6] This limits the native range of definite O. latipes to Japan: eastern and southern Honshu, Shikoku, Kyushu, and smaller southern islands in the country.[6] Formerly included in this species but now regarded as separate are O. sakaizumii in northwestern Honshu in Japan (locally, it hybridizes with O. latipes), and O. sinensis (Chinese rice fish) in much of China, west Korea and parts of mainland southeast Asia.[3][6][7] The taxonomic position of certain populations, including some in China, Laos and east Korea, is unclear and require further study.[3][6] It is possible that all these Chinese populations are part of O. sinensis, but the Laos specimens are relatively large, similar to O. latipes rather than the tiny O. sinensis.[3] The east ...

BACKGROUND: Artemisinin-resistant Plasmodium falciparum malaria parasites are now present across much of mainland Southeast Asia, where ongoing surveys are measuring and mapping their spatial distribution. These efforts require substantial resources. Here we propose a generic smart surveillance methodology to identify optimal candidate sites for future sampling and thus map the distribution of artemisinin resistance most efficiently. METHODS: The approach uses the uncertainty map generated iteratively by a geostatistical model to determine optimal locations for subsequent sampling. RESULTS: The methodology is illustrated using recent data on the prevalence of the K13-propeller polymorphism (a genetic marker of artemisinin resistance) in the Greater Mekong Subregion. CONCLUSION: This methodology, which has broader application to geostatistical mapping in general, could improve the quality and efficiency of drug resistance mapping and thereby guide practical operations to eliminate malaria in affected

Uncertainties surround the timing of modern human emergence and occupation in East and Southeast Asia. Although genetic and archeological data indicate a rapid migration out of Africa and into Southeast Asia by at least 60 ka, mainland Southeast Asia is notable for its absence of fossil evidence for early modern human occupation. Here we report on a modern human cranium from Tam Pa Ling, Laos, which was recovered from a secure stratigraphic context. Radiocarbon and luminescence dating of the surrounding sediments provide a minimum age of 51-46 ka, and direct U-dating of the bone indicates a maximum age of ~63 ka. The cranium has a derived modern human morphology in features of the frontal, occipital, maxillae, and dentition. It is also differentiated from western Eurasian archaic humans in aspects of its temporal, occipital, and dental morphology. In the context of an increasingly documented archaic-modern morphological mosaic among the earliest modern humans in western Eurasia, Tam Pa Ling ...

Governments across South East Asia are counting the mounting economic costs of the outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and nervously awaiting the results of their containment efforts. While the number of cases is relatively small compared to other disasters that have struck the region, the character of the disease and the uncertainly it has generated have had an economic impact out of all proportion to the immediate effects of SARS on public health.

A Broad and Complex Perspective of the Asian Region The architecture of the Asian region has gradually changed during the past three decades. From a region that was based on and influenced by bilateral alliances, it has become a multilateral region with an increasing number of institutions that play an important role in Asia. These institutions include Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), Korean Energy Development Organization (KEDO), ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF), Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), Six Party Talks, and others. The changing interactions in Asia raise important questions that this edited volume deals with: What is the vision of the changing face of Asia? What attitudes do the Asian nations have toward the new multilateral environment? How do they envision the role of the international organizations in the region, regionalism in Asia, and the Asian community, and what are their assumptions toward the U.S. role in Asia? These ...
The Sub-regional Consultation Meeting for South-East Asia was organized on 3-5 October 2012 in Bangkok, Thailand. This meeting was organized by ESCAP in cooperation with the ASEAN Centre for Energy, and was held in conjunction with the Power-Gen Asia 2012, one of South-East Asias largest event in the power generation sector.. South-East Asia is a large sub-region stretching from the Bay of Bengal to the Philippine Sea, comprising a population of over 620 million people. Its 11 countries have different economies in terms of size, complexity and diversification, and this is also reflected on their energy situation. While the sub-regions energy mix is dominated by fossil fuels, countries such as Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar and Timor Leste have their energy mix dominated by renewables, mostly traditional biomass. Another particularity about South-East Asia is that the sub-region is not self-sufficient in fossil fuels, although some countries are net exporters of these resources, such as Viet Nam ...
A draft by ASEAN members stressed the need for cooperation to maintain peace, stability, freedom of navigation of the disputed South China Sea.
Humans reached present-day Island Southeast Asia (ISEA) in one of the first major human migrations out of Africa. Population movements in the millennia following this initial settlement are thought to have greatly influenced the genetic makeup of current inhabitants, yet the extent attributed to different events is not clear. Recent studies suggest that south-to-north gene flow largely influenced present-day patterns of genetic variation in Southeast Asian populations and that late Pleistocene and early Holocene migrations from Southeast Asia are responsible for a substantial proportion of ISEA ancestry. Archaeological and linguistic evidence suggests that the ancestors of present-day inhabitants came mainly from north-to-south migrations from Taiwan and throughout ISEA approximately 4,000 years ago. We report a large-scale genetic analysis of human variation in the Iban population from the Malaysian state of Sarawak in northwestern Borneo, located in the center of ISEA. Genome-wide ...

A comprehensive people-oriented approach to the irregular movement of migrants and refugees in South East Asia. We, the undersigned*, welcome the convening later this week of the Emergency ASEAN Ministerial meeting on Transnational Crime: Irregular Movement of Persons in the South East Asia Region. The meeting provides a timely opportunity to move meaningfully forward on the comprehensive and durable solution called for by the Foreign Ministers of Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand in Putrajaya on 20 May 2015, in keeping with the spirit of unity and solidarity of a people-oriented and people-centred ASEAN.. Progress has been made on a number of the individual and collective actions called for in that statement, as well as on the 17 recommendations of the Special Meeting on Irregular Migration in the Indian Ocean held in Bangkok on 29 May 2015. But much more needs to be done. This includes providing access for relevant national and international actors, such as UNHCR and IOM, to the refugees and ...
The Philippines has joined other members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations in urging the public to strengthen the fight against dengue as part of the commemoration of Asean Dengue Day. This is observed every June 15 based on the declaration of Asean Health Ministers during their meeting held in Singapore on July 22, 2010.. This year, the Department of Health (DOH) Bicol Region office led efforts to promote the local Asean Dengue Day with its theme focusing on "Search [and destroy mosquito breeding places]and Seek [early consultation]." The event focused on the two core actions of the 4S strategies for effective dengue prevention and control program.. The 4S implementation calls on everyone to become prime movers in achieving substantial change and be positive influencers to others within the community. "The significance of addressing dengue at the barangay [village]level is to overcome its detrimental impact of instigating economic burden and hindering our development goals. The ...

Genetic variation at 9 autosomal microsatellite loci (CFS1R, TH01, PLA2A, F13A1, CYP19, LPL, D20S481, D20S473, and D20S604) has been characterized in 16 Asian and Oceanic populations, mostly from mainland and insular Southeast Asia. The neighbor-joining tree and the principal coordinates analysis of the genetic relationships of these populations show a clear separation of Papua New Guinea Highlanders and, to a lesser extent, Malayan aborigines (Orang Asli or Semai) from the rest of the populations. Although the number of markers used in this study appears to be inadequate for clarifying the patterns of genetic relationships among the studied populations, in the principal coordinates analysis a geographic trend is observed in the mainland and insular Southeast Asian populations. Furthermore, in an attempt to contrast the extent of variation between autosomal and Y-chromosome-specific microsatellite loci and to reveal potential differences in the patterns of male and female migrations, we have also
ASEAN-US Cooperation in Fostering Transparency and Good Regulatory Practices. Transparency is one of key to success of trade liberalization and facilitation, and is essential to addressing and eliminating unnecessary barriers to trade. The businesses engaged in international trade and investment, especially small- and medium-sized enterprises, value the predictability that comes with a clear understanding of how policies and practices that will affect them are being developed and how they will be applied. Improving transparency in international trade and investment helps leverage trade to achieve more inclusive growth by improving predictability and accountability.. Therefore, the governments of the ten ASEAN Member States and the United States share a common understanding that the following best practices on transparency and good regulatory practices help improve and deepen the international trade and investment relationship among ASEAN countries and the United States to the benefit of our ...

ASEAN AFFAIRS, June 14 Tuberculosis (TB) is a terrible and cruel disease that leaves its victims wasting away, coughing blood and at risk of infecting carers and loved ones. A few years ago, it looked like mankind was about to conquer TB once and for all - yet it is making a deadly comeback. One in three people in the world are infected with dormant TB germs and these can be made active in a variety of ways when a persons immunity is reduced, by ageing, by contracting HIV or some other medical conditions. This is made more serious by the resistance the germs now have to drugs, assisted by the extensive use of antibiotics around the world. This new form of Extremely Drug Resistant Tuberculosis (XDR-TB) is now emerging around ASEAN, with the announcement yesterday that 17 cases of the disease have been found in Thailand among a total of 15,000 cases nationwide. No more than 30% of patients with XDR-TB can be cured, and the proportion may be lower in cases when the disease is resistant to multiple ...

By Erin Lisemby. Erin Lisemby is a registered dietitian/nutritionist currently working with the US Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) mobile outreach programme. She has volunteered as a consultant for an anti human-trafficking organisation in Cambodia.. The United Nations defines human trafficking as "the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring, or receipt of persons by improper means (such as force, abduction, fraud, or coercion) for an improper purpose including forced labour or sexual exploitation." (UN, 2015). In 2009, the UN published a global report that stated sexual exploitation makes up 79% of human trafficking and the majority of victims are women and girls (UN ODC, 2009).. A recent technical literature review (Lisemby, 2015) highlights a gap in research regarding the health needs of formerly trafficked female children and adolescents, with a specific focus on the Southeast Asian population. Although evidence is limited, what exists ...

Tuberculosis (TB) is a chronic infectious disease caused by a bacillus belonging to a group of bacteria grouped in the mycobacterium tuberculosis complex and remains an important public health problem of the 21st century (WHO, 2017). It remains a high-priority communicable disease that causes an enormous burden of morbidity and mortality. Tuberculosis (TB) control and elimination rely on an early detection of active TB cases, prompt anti-TB treatment, identification of persons in risk of exposure and infection and prevention of secondary TB cases. (Lönnroth et al., 2015). Globally, in 2016 alone, approximately 10.4 million new cases (range from 8.8 million to 12.2 million) which is equivalent to 140 cases per 100000 have been occurred worldwide. According to the reports of WHO (2017), the most estimated number of TB cases are in the WHO South-East Asia Region (45%), the WHO African Region (25%) and the WHO Western Pacific Region (17%); similarly, smaller proportions of cases occurred in the WHO ...

For breast cancer control, our analyses show that treating early stage breast cancer is more cost effective than treating late stage disease. Results indicate that priorities in national breast cancer control should be the implementation of an extensive programme including active mammography screening and treatment of all stages. Although such a programme reflects the economic attractiveness of diagnosing breast cancer at an earlier stage, many developing countries may not be able to meet its total costs (including the required infrastructure, logistics, and expertise). Given the limited available resources, priorities are probably best directed at treatment of early stage disease and at developing a less expensive means of early diagnosis. We did not evaluate clinical breast examination or breast self examination because currently there is no consensus on their value, either alone or in addition to mammography. However, together with other ways of raising awareness, they could be cost effective ...

This paper provides an overview of the smoking rates and characteristics of smokers in Taiwan. The persistence of a large gap between high male and low female rates, commonly seen in Southeast Asian countries,14 has received limited attention but is worthy of special concern, as it may have played an important role in the shortening in life expectancy observed among males in these countries.15. This large sex differential presents special challenges for the development of sex specific strategies for tobacco control.16,17 For example, having effective or strict workplace smoking policies will discourage more males than females from smoking, as men smoke more than women at work by a factor of 10 or more.18 A successful narrowing of the sex gap was achieved in the USA between 1965 (52% for males and 34% for females) and 1997-8 (26% for males and 22% for females),19 mostly through the reduction in male smoking rates. Studying this experience in reducing male rates would be valuable, particularly if ...

An increase in dairy herd numbers and use of high-quality forage is increasing Chinas domestic fluid milk production. Domestic consumer preference for safe, reliable products continues to support estimates of higher 2013 imports of 14.35 MMT, benefitting the primary suppliers from the European Union. U.S. producers, Chinas largest supplier of non-fat dry milk powder, should continue to see export opportunities grow as Post forecasts a 16 percent growth in NFD milk imports to 230,000MT. Price advantage over whole milk powder, rising consumer and industrial demand and small domestic production will continue to influence the orders for NFD milk imports. Nevertheless, demand for whole milk powder, continues a steady upward trend, with favorable global prices and safe product requirements, influencing import demand. Chinas whole milk powder exports are expected to rise by 10 percent in 2012 to 11,000 MT, primarily to Hong Kong and small African and southeast Asian countries.

In a field dominated by a discourse that paints the European Union (EU) as a change agent providing initial stimuli, it is refreshing that the transmission or diffusion of norms, values, processes and institutional design is now being reported (albeit inchoately) in the cooperation of regional entities in developing countries between themselves. The fact that South-South inter-regional diffusion has been low is trite. Pre-colonial and colonial patterns of international relations embedded an ethic of North to South flows of ideas, especially in the realm of knowledge transfer. It is easy to conclude that South-South interregional exchanges have so far been barren. In many cases, e.g. between Asia and Africa, this assessment is not far off. Taking account of inter-regional diffusion between the African Union (AU) and the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) within the broader context of Africa-Asia relations, the paper aspires to provoke further research interest in diffusion between ...

APEC leaders - from 11 Pacific Rim countries - reached an agreement on Saturday to keep alive the Transpacific Partnership (TPP) deal without the US as Mr. Trump dropped that trade deal earlier championed by his predecessor, Barack Obama.. Mr. Macaranas, who was chairman at the 1996 APEC Senior Officials Meeting, said: "The RCEP is more important to ASEAN than TPP which is more the concern of APEC," referring to the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership thats viewed as Chinas way of matching the TPP.. "An ASEAN position on TPP at the APEC Summit in Da Nang… could have impacted but very weakly," Mr. Macaranas said.. "ASEAN has failed to assert its central convening role in the economic realm of cross-regional cooperation.". An RCEP ...

The interconnected, multidimensional nature of inequalities-in income, between the sexes, in reproductive health and in education-often makes it difficult to determine which forces are at play and in which ways. However, all of these inequalities interact, and have long-term and compounding consequences for people around the world.. Economic inequalities are often evident in wide or growing differences in health outcomes, which reflect inequalities in opportunity; and in access to information, quality health care or other public goods. Such inequalities in opportunity and access underpin health inequalities throughout the world, via unequal access to information technology, health education, modern health care and the benefits of scientific progress.. Attempts to address inequalities in outcomes or opportunities fall short if they fail to address the long-standing structural gender inequalities faced by women and girls, which operate in all societies, and which reinforce both relative and ...
