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 ...
Plasmodium vivax malaria elimination can only be achieved by the deployment of 8-aminoquinolines (primaquine and tafenoquine) in combination with ACT to kill both blood and liver-stage parasites. However, primaquine and the other 8-aminoquinolines cause dose-dependent haemolysis in subjects with G6PD deficiency, an X-linked disorder of red blood cells that is very common in populations living in tropical and subtropical areas. In order to inform safer use of 8-aminoquinolines in the Greater Mekong Subregion, a multi-centre study was carried out to assess the prevalence of G6PD deficiency and to identify the main G6PD variants in samples collected in Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam. Blood samples were collected in the five countries during National Malaria Surveys or during Population Surveys. During Population Surveys samples were characterized for G6PD phenotype using the Fluorescent Spot Test. Samples were then genotyped for a panel of G6PD mutations. G6PD deficiency was found to be

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
Manila) - The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) should set clear human rights benchmarks for Burma as a condition for its chairmanship of the regional grouping in 2014, Human Rights Watch said today.. These benchmarks should include the immediate release of all political prisoners, the repeal of laws used to repress peaceful dissent, the end of abuses in ethnic conflict areas, and accountability for perpetrators of war crimes.. Burma has long been a millstone around ASEANs neck that wont be removed by making Burma the chair in 2014, said Elaine Pearson, deputy Asia director at Human Rights Watch. ASEAN needs to set clear benchmarks for reform and closely monitor progress.. Despite two general prisoner amnesties in May and October in which 316 political prisoners were released, the Assistance Association of Political Prisoners of Burma estimates that 1,669 political prisoners currently remain behind bars. The opposition National League for Democracy has also produced a partial ...

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 ...

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 ...

This volume, edited by John Hicklin, David Robinson, and Anoop Singh, contains papers prepared for an ASEAN conference held in Jakarta in November 1996. The conference aimed to review the macroeconomic record of the member countries of ASEAN, examine the factors that have contributed to the regions economic success, and identify the policy agenda for sustaining this success into the 21st century.
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 ...

The Association of Southeast Asian Nations or ASEAN is an organization with most member countries still far from being considered as advanced or first class countries.. Poverty is still a problem in the region, and is reflected in the regions health situation. The economic, political, and social diversity of ASEAN societies also contribute to health issues.. THE ASEAN HEALTH SITUATION. Data compiled from the World Health Organization, the United Nations Population Fund, and the World Bank reveal a great disparity in health conditions. Richer countries like Singapore and Brunei tend to have healthier citizens while the less wealthy ones like Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam suffer from lower access to health care and are less prepared in handling emergency health issues and threats.. Earthquakes, typhoons, floods, and volcanic eruptions cause numerous fatalities and consequent environmental conditions that further affect peoples lives. Earthquakes have been big problems in Indonesia in the recent ...
The geo-climatic conditions of South and South-East Asian countries are diverse and vulnerable to multiple natural hazards such as drought. Drought evolves over months or even years, affects a large spatial extent and causes enormous damages. Drought Risk Management in South and South-East Asia is a comprehensive reference on overall perspectives and scenarios on drought risk mitigation and management, based on researches and case studies from South and South-East Asian countries. Drought management is a complex area of work that requires active and continuous participation of the national, provincial and local governments, multiple ministries, and divisions. This book demonstrates the best practices of socio-economic and technological interventions to enhance drought risk management, which will help to develop plans and policies, and their implementation to reduce the impact of droughts. It also offers views of field practitioners on impacts of the interventions practised at the national, ...

Five years since submitting its formal membership application to the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), the small Pacific country of East Timor is more determined than ever to join.. It should be simple. According to ASEANs 1967 Bangkok Declaration, the main condition for joining the economic and political alliance is that the applicant country must be geographically located in Southeast Asia. But the 2007 ASEAN Charter introduced new requirements - above all, the need to obtain consensus among the blocs current member states. This is where East Timor is now running into problems.. Although East Timors neighbor (and former enemy) Indonesia and some other ASEAN members are supporting its membership, skepticism is mounting in Singapore and Laos, whose governments say they are concerned that East Timors low economic development will prevent it from fulfilling its membership obligations. But this excuse strains credulity. When Cambodia, Laos, Burma, and Vietnam joined ASEAN in the ...
One of the biggest obstacles to developing policies in cancer care in Southeast Asia is lack of reliable data on disease burden and economic consequences. In 2012, we instigated a study of new cancer patients in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) region - the Asean CosTs In ONcology (ACTION) study - to assess the economic impact of cancer. The ACTION study is a prospective longitudinal study of 9,513 consecutively recruited adult patients with an initial diagnosis of cancer. Twelve months after diagnosis, we recorded death and household financial catastrophe (out-of-pocket medical costs exceeding 30 % of annual household income). We assessed the effect on these two outcomes of a range of socio-demographic, clinical, and economic predictors using a multinomial regression model. The mean age of participants was 52 years; 64 % were women. A year after diagnosis, 29 % had died, 48 % experienced financial catastrophe, and just 23 % were alive with no financial catastrophe. The risk of dying

Genetic diversity data, from Y chromosome and mitochondrial DNA as well as recent genome-wide autosomal SNPs, suggested that mainland Southeast Asia was the major geographic source of East Asian populations. However, these studies also detected Central-South Asia- and/or West Eurasia-related genetic components in East Asia, implying either recent population admixture or ancient migrations via the proposed northern route. To trace the time period and geographic source of these Central-South Asia- and West Eurasia-related genetic components, we sampled 3,826 males (116 populations from China and one population from South Korea) and performed high-resolution genotyping according to the well-resolved Y-chromosome phylogeny. Our data, in combination with the published East Asian Y-haplogroup data, show that there are four dominant haplogroups (accounting for 92.87% of the East Asian Y chromosomes), O-M175, D-M174, C-M130 (not including C5-M356) and N-M231, in both southern and northern East Asian ...

There is a paucity of literature that addresses the health vulnerabilities of readymade garment (RMG) workers in South and Southeast Asian regions. Therefore, the aim of this systematic review is to identify the distinctive types of health vulnerabilities along with the causes and consequences of these vulnerabilities of the RMG workers in South and Southeast Asian regions. Systematic review search methods were applied utilising the PRISMA protocol. Literature published between July 2007 to June 2017 on health vulnerabilities of the RMG workers of South and Southeast Asian countries were identified through electronic databases and manual searches. A total number of 19 studies (16 quantitative studies, 3 mixed-method studies) were included from the primary 17,001 papers identified. The quality of these studies was assessed by using the EPHPP (effective public health practice project) and the CASP (critical appraisal skills programme) tools. From the identified studies, 14 were considered strong, with
This widespread squirrel has been recorded from northeastern South Asia, southern China and much of mainland Southeast Asia.

In China, it has been recorded from Yunnan and Xizang (Smith and Xie 2008). In Southeast Asia, it ranges from Myanmar, through much of Thailand, western Cambodia, northern Viet Nam, western Lao PDR and northern Peninsular Malaysia. There is a recent published record from Sumatra (Indonesia), but this is considered erroneous ...
The aim of this programme is to improve border security across Southeast Asia to address transnational crimes such as people smuggling and human trafficking.. Funded by the European Union (EU), the programme works to strengthen law enforcement networks and cooperation at regional transit hubs in the 10 countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).. The 10 ASEAN countries are Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.. The three-year programme was launched in Jakarta in October 2015. It builds on the success of a pilot project which saw the expansion of access to INTERPOLs tools and services to frontline police at 16 sites (eight in Cambodia and eight in Vietnam).. The two main components of the programme are:. ...
The South-East Asia Region contains an estimated 400,000-500,000 people who inject drugs (PWID). HIV prevalence among PWID is commonly 20% or higher in Indonesia, Thailand, Myanmar and some regions of India. Opioid substitution therapy (OST) is an important HIV prevention intervention in this part of the world. However, key challenges and barriers to scale up of OST exist, including: pervasive stigma and discrimination towards PWID; criminalisation of drug use overshadowing a public health response; lack of political will and national commitment; low financial investment; focus towards traditional treatment models of detoxification and rehabilitation; inadequate dosing of OST; and poor monitoring and evaluation of programmes. Our review of local evidence highlights that OST can be successful within the Asian context. Such evidence should be utilised more widely to advocate for policy change and increased political commitment to ensure OST reaches substantially more drug users. Significance for public

Asean members the Philippines and Vietnam have come into direct confrontation with China over territorial disputes, while non-claimants such as Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar have maintained closer ties with Beijing.. Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and Brunei Darussalam, meanwhile, have generally walked a delicate line somewhere in the middle.. Nasir said the meeting of Southeast Asian foreign ministers and China had run over schedule, meaning that the press conference was canceled and a number of Asean foreign ministers had to leave immediately.. The Asean foreign ministers did not have a chance to discuss how they would release the content of the media guideline to the media.. Malaysian officials could not be reached for comment but the Asean secretariat in Jakarta said no official statement was issued after the meeting..

A link between lack of sleep and poor emotional control among teenagers in South East Asia is being investigated by researchers in South Australia. The collaboration between Flinders University in Adelaide, South Australia and Duke-NUS in Singapore, seeks to further establish the association between sleep and poor behavioral and emotional outcomes.. It follows a recent Flinders University study that linked shorter sleep duration to poor decision-making and anti-social behaviour.. Flinders University Research Fellow Dr Michelle Short said the study focused on South East Asian teens because they were known to be among, the most at-risk populations for decreased levels of sleep.. We know that kids from South East Asian countries like Korea, Japan and China have the worst sleep out of any teens in the world, said Dr Short.. There is a trend of decreased sleep in pursuit of academic achievement. These teenagers also have higher suicide risks which is linked to mood regulation and academic ...

Hemoglobin E: An abnormal hemoglobin that results from the substitution of lysine for glutamic acid at position 26 of the beta chain. It is most frequently observed in southeast Asian populations.
Antibiotic resistance is a growing impediment to the control of infectious diseases worldwide, and multidrug-resistant (MDR) tuberculosis (TB) continues to be a serious part of this problem, particularly in Asia and developing countries (6, 8). In 1999, the World Health Organization reported that 80% of all incident TB cases were found in 22 countries, with more than half the cases occurring in five Southeast Asian countries, followed by the Western Pacific region, which accounted for 1.96 million cases (7). These findings indicated that the constant creation and increased circulation of MDR TB threatens not only the countries of origin, but also other countries through immigration.. Resistance to rifampin is one of the key components in antituberculosis therapeutic regimens and is a primary marker of MDR TB. The resistance to rifampin in most cases is due to the genetic alterations in the rpoB gene, encoding the β-subunit of DNA-dependent RNA polymerase (10, 13, 18, 20, 28, 32). It was ...
The only regional organization of zoos for Southeast Asia is the Southeast Asian Zoo Association, (SEAZA). It represents around 90 different conservatories and zoos in Southeast Asia. SEAZA became a member of the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA) in 1990. SEAZA Headquarters are currently located in Taiwan. SEAZA is considered a sister organization to the South Asian Zoo Association for Regional Cooperation (SAZARC), which organizes zoos in Nepal, India and other countries in South Asia. Although they preside over two similar regions, the cultures and policies of the regions are too different for a single organization to govern both. The main goals of the SEAZA are to, Strengthen in-situ conservation and management plans, to increase captive breading through research, to improve standards of non human animal welfare, to provide better recreational learning experiences for zoo visitors, to educate the public about the importance of wildlife conservation, and to promote tourism in ...
The Association of Southeast Asian Nations launched a new website Tuesday for nations to compare notes on infectious diseases threatening the region.
Abstract. This Special Issue focuses on recent research on the important emerging and neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) in South and South East Asia and Northern Australia. This region stretches from Afghanistan in the west to Papua New Guinea in the east, and includes the Indian subcontinent, mainland South-East Asia (Indo China), maritime South East Asia, and the tropical regions of Australia. Many of these areas are highly endemic for important NTDs and emerging infectious diseases including lymphatic filariasis, leprosy, soil-transmitted helminthiases (hookworm, Trichuris, Ascaris, and Strongyloides), food-borne trematodiases, schistosomiasis, dengue/chikungunya/zika, leptospirosis, meloidosis, scabies, trachoma, and yaws. Several of these diseases are targeted for elimination or enhanced control by the World Health Organization in the next 5 to 10 years, although some have chronic lasting sequelae needing lifelong management.

Both the live reef food fish-that is, fish captured to sell live in markets and restaurants-and the ornamental species trades are high-value industries. The ornamental species trade takes in an estimated $200 million to $330 million per year globally, with the majority of exports leaving Southeast Asian countries and entering the United States and Europe. The overall value of the industry has remained stable within the past decade, though trade statistics are incomplete. The live reef food fish trade is concentrated mainly in Southeast Asia, with the majority of fish exported from the Philippines and Indonesia and imported through Hong Kong to China. Over time, the trade has expanded its reach, drawing exports from the Indian Ocean and Pacific islands, reflecting depleted stocks in Southeast Asia, rising demand, improvements in transport, and the high value of traded fish. The estimated value of the live reef food fish trade was $810 million in 2002. A live reef food fish sells for approximately ...

The Philippines is a part of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) community and one of the fastest growing healthcare markets in the region. With regard to healthcare, the Philippine Government has been looking at ways to achieve 100% enrolment to PhilHealth by 2020. One of the means is by mandating all Filipinos to enrol to PhilHealth. Currently, PhilHealths coverage is at about 92%. An ageing population, urbanisation, and the rising middle class have led to an increasing demand for healthcare services, as more people can afford quality healthcare. Due to the huge gap in the Philippines healthcare delivery system, abundant opportunities are available for key private participants to invest in the healthcare sector. Private hospitals, pharmaceutical producers, and healthcare IT companies are expanding into the Philippines market, partially owing to the recently launched AEC. Lack of infrastructure and human resources is putting a strain on the healthcare delivery system in the Philippines
Indonesias economy, the biggest of the various Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) countries, has posted growth on average of about 5 per cent a year for a decade, and exports doubled to $204-billion in the five years leading up to 2011.. The country has an abundance of natural resources, and boomed as China gobbled them up: It is the worlds largest producer of thermal coal, tin and nickel. It has vast supplies of oil and gas, and is by far the biggest exporter of palm oil. Japanese investors seeking strong returns as their economy sputters at home have become the largest foreign investors in Indonesia - and their footprint is visible from bank towers and infrastructure projects to the Yamaha motorcycles zipping through Jakartas gridlock.. But corruption has been a problem for years, bleeding away state revenues that could have been used to build infrastructure and pay for services. Indonesias Corruption Eradication Commission has been making headway, and Jokowi even had his ...

Space scientists successfully test fired the engine on Indias Mars satellite, a crucial maneuver as the country attempts to become the first Asian nation to place a spacecraft into Martian orbit.

Amid a global shortage of injectable IPV, countries in the WHO South-East Asia Region are opting to use fractional doses of IPV, an evidence-based intervention that not only ensures continued protection of children against all types of polio viruses, but also helps save vaccine - a move bound to positively impact global vaccine supply in the coming years, said Poonam Khetrapal, WHO Regional Director for South-East Asia.. India became the first country globally to introduce fractional doses of IPV in childhood immunisation programme in eight of its 36 states / union territories in early 2016. The initiative is now being scaled up nationwide. Sri Lanka followed suit in July 2016. Bangladesh has decided to introduce fractional IPV doses this year. Other countries in the region are also considering a shift to the use of fractional IPV doses in their immunisation schedule, Khetrapal added.. According to WHO, studies have confirmed two fractional doses (one fractional dose is one-fifth of a full ...
