Corneal ulceration in South East Asia. I: a model for the prevention of bacterial ulcers at the village level in rural Bhutan. (2/31)

AIM: To prove that antibiotic distribution by grassroots volunteer village health workers (VVHWs) in Bhutan is an effective and efficient public health intervention for the prevention of post-traumatic corneal ulceration. METHODS: 55 villages in two districts in Bhutan were selected for the study. A defined population of 10 139 individuals was followed prospectively for 18 months by 31 VVHWs who were trained to identify post-traumatic corneal abrasions with fluorescein dye and a blue torch and to administer 1% chloramphenicol ointment three times a day for 3 days to the eyes of individuals who fulfilled the eligibility criteria. RESULTS: During the 18 month period 135 individuals reported to VVHWs with an ocular injury and 115 were found to have a corneal abrasion. All 115 were treated with 1% chloramphenicol ointment three times a day for 3 days and all healed without sequelae CONCLUSIONS: Corneal ulcers that occur following traumatic corneal abrasions can be effectively prevented, even in the setting of isolated rural conditions such as those that exist in villages in Bhutan, by using relatively simple preventative measures that local VVHWs can easily be taught to employ.  (+info)

Chronic peritoneal dialysis in South Asia - challenges and future. (3/31)

Chronic peritoneal dialysis (PD), especially continuous ambulatory PD (CAPD), is being increasingly utilized in South Asian countries (population of 1.4 billion). There are divergent geopolitical and socioeconomic factors that influence the growth and expansion of CAPD in this region. The majority of the countries in South Asia are lacking in government healthcare system for reimbursing renal replacement therapy. The largest utilization of chronic PD is in India, with nearly 6500 patients on this treatment by the end of 2006. A large majority of patients are doing 2 L exchanges 3 times per day, using glucose-based dialysis solution manufactured in India. Chronic PD is not being utilized in Myanmar, Bhutan, or Seychelles. Affirmative action by the manufacturing industry, medical professionals, government policy makers, and nongovernmental organizations for reducing the cost of chronic PD will enable the growth and utilization of this life-saving therapy.  (+info)

Malnutrition and micronutrient deficiencies among Bhutanese refugee children--Nepal, 2007. (4/31)

Acute and chronic malnutrition and micronutrient deficiencies have been found in refugee camp populations. In southeastern Nepal, despite consistent access by refugees to general rations, certain micronutrient deficiencies have posed a substantial health burden to the approximately 100,000 Bhutanese residing in seven refugee camps. Limited food diversity, frequent illness, and poor feeding practices have been cited as underlying causes of poor nutritional status in this population. Annual surveys to assess levels of acute malnutrition (i.e., wasting) and chronic malnutrition (i.e., stunting) have been conducted in these camps by the Association of Medical Doctors of Asia (AMDA) and United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR); however, the capacity to reliably evaluate micronutrient deficiencies has not existed locally in the camps. In January 2007, AMDA and CDC, at the request of UNHCR and the World Food Programme (WFP), conducted a nutritional survey of children aged 6-59 months, assessing 1) the prevalence of acute malnutrition, chronic malnutrition, underweight, anemia, and angular stomatitis (i.e., riboflavin deficiency); 2) the cumulative incidence of diarrhea and acute respiratory illness (ARI); and 3) the feeding practices of the children's mothers. This report describes the results of that survey, which indicated that, although acute malnutrition was found in only 4.2% of the children, chronic malnutrition was found in 26.9% and anemia in 43.3%. These findings underscore the importance of monitoring both malnutrition and micronutrient deficiencies and addressing the underlying causes of nutritional deficits.  (+info)

Sex-trafficking, violence, negotiating skill, and HIV infection in brothel-based sex workers of eastern India, adjoining Nepal, Bhutan, and Bangladesh. (5/31)

A community-based cross-sectional study was conducted among brothel-based sex workers of West Bengal, eastern India, to understand sex-trafficking, violence, negotiating skills, and HIV infection in them. In total, 580 sex workers from brothels of four districts participated in the study. A pretested questionnaire was introduced to study their sociodemography, sex-trafficking, violence, and negotiating skills. Blood sample of 4-5 mL was collected from each sex worker using an unlinked anonymous method to study their HIV status. Data were edited and entered into a computer using the Epi Info software (6.04d version). Both univariate and multivariate analyses were done to find out any association between HIV and relevant risk factors. Results of the study revealed that a sizeable number of the participants were from Nepal (9%) and Bangladesh (7%). The seroprevalence of HIV was strikingly higher among Nepalese (43%) than among Bangladeshis (7%) and Indians (9%). Almost one in every four sex workers (24%) had joined the profession by being trafficked. Violence at the beginning of this profession was more among the trafficked victims, including those sold by their family members (57%) compared to those who joined the profession voluntarily (15%). The overall condom negotiation rate with most recent two clients was 38%. By multivariate analysis, HIV was significantly associated with sexual violence (odds ratio=2.3; 95% confidence interval 1.2-4.5). The study has documented that the trafficked victims faced violence, including sexual violence, to a greater magnitude, and sexual violence was associated with acquiring HIV in them. There is a need for an in-depth study to understand the problem of trafficking and its consequences.  (+info)

Group therapy model for refugee and torture survivors. (7/31)

The paper discusses the Center for Torture and Trauma Survivors' therapy group model for torture survivors and describes two of its variants: The Bashal group for African and Somali women and the Bhutanese multi-family therapy group. Group therapies in this model extend to community healing. Groups develop their cohesion to graduate to a social community club or initiate a community organization. New graduates from the group join the club and become part of the social advocacy process and of group and individual support and community healing. The BASHAL Somali women's group that developed spontaneously into a socio-political club for African women, and the Bhutanese family group that consciously developed into a Bhutanese community organization are discussed as two variants of this new model of group therapy with torture survivors.  (+info)

Bhutan became a member of the United Nations in 1971. Bhutan does not have diplomatic relations with any of the permanent members of the UN Security Council, including the United States. Although Bhutan and the United States have never established formal diplomatic relations, the two countries maintain warm, informal relations via the U.S. Embassy in New Delhi, India, and Bhutans Mission to the United Nations in New York. The U.S. Government annually brings several Bhutanese participants to the United States through its International Visitors, Humphrey Fellows, and Fulbright Programs. Bhutan participates in the South Asia Regional Initiative for Energy Integration (SARI/EI), a program sponsored by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) that helps countries increase energy security through cross-border trade, clean energy access, and improved energy market practices. Bhutan receives USAID-supported training on a range of disaster management topics and State Department-supported ...
With its 733,643 people, Bhutan is the 163rd largest country in the world by population. It is the 135th largest country in the world by area with 38,394 square kilometers. In 1865, Britain and Bhutan signed the Treaty of Sinchulu, under which Bhutan would receive an annual subsidy in exchange for ceding some border land to British India. Under British influence, a monarchy was set up in 1907; three years later, a treaty was signed whereby the British agreed not to interfere in Bhutanese internal affairs, and Bhutan allowed Britain to direct its foreign affairs. This role was assumed by independent India after 1947. Two years later, a formal Indo-Bhutanese accord returned to Bhutan the areas annexed by the British, formalized the annual subsidies the country received, and defined Indias responsibilities in defense and foreign relations. In March 2005, King Jigme Singye WANGCHUCK unveiled the governments draft constitution - which introduced major democratic reforms - and pledged to hold a ...

There are a number of environmental issues in Bhutan. Among Bhutans most pressing issues are traditional firewood collection, crop and flock protection, and wildlife conservation, as well as modern concerns such as industrial pollution, waste disposal, and climate change that threaten Bhutans population and biodiversity. Land and water use have also become matters of environmental concern in both rural and urban settings. In addition to these general issues, others such as landfill availability and air and noise pollution are particularly prevalent in relatively urbanized and industrialized areas of Bhutan. In many cases, the least financially and politically empowered find themselves the most affected by environmental issues. Through 2011, Bhutan experienced accelerated economic activities pressured natural resources such as land, air, and water. Development activities increased urbanization, industrialization, mining and quarrying, agriculture, and solid waste management projects. Land ...

Health in Bhutan is one of the governments highest priorities in its scheme of development and modernization. Health and related issues are overseen by the Ministry of Health, itself represented on the executive Lhengye Zhungtshog (cabinet) by the Minister of Health. As a component of Gross National Happiness, affordable and accessible health care is central to the public policy of Bhutan. The Constitution of Bhutan charges the Royal Government with ensuring a "safe and healthy environment," and with providing "free access to basic public health services in both modern and traditional medicines". The Ministry of Health has provided universal health care in Bhutan since the 1970s. Health care infrastructure and services are planned and developed through Five Year Plans (FYP) of the Ministry of Health. The second democratically appointed Health Minister, Lyonpo Tandin Wangchuk, is the head of the Ministry of Health. Two major pieces of Bhutanese legislation establish a framework for personnel and ...
Background: Knowledge on antimicrobial drug resistance and genetic characteristics of Neisseria gonorrhoeae isolates circulating in India, Pakistan, and Bhutan is sorely lacking. In this paper, we describe the prevalence of antimicrobial resistance and molecular characteristics of N. gonorrhoeae isolates from India, Pakistan, and Bhutan in 2007-2011. Methods: Antimicrobial susceptibility and beta-lactamase production were tested for 65 N. gonorrhoeae isolates from India (n=40), Pakistan (n=18) and Bhutan (n=7) using Etest methodology (eight antimicrobials) and nitrocefin solution, respectively. Resistance determinants, i.e. penA, mtrR, porB1b, gyrA, and parC, were sequenced. N. gonorrhoeae multiantigen sequence typing (NG-MAST) was performed for molecular epidemiology. Results: The highest resistance level was observed for ciprofloxacin (94%), followed by penicillin G (68%), erythromycin (62%), tetracycline (55%), and azithromycin (7.7%). All the isolates were susceptible to ceftriaxone, ...

As my plane glides over the lush, green forest on the side of the mountains and descends into the narrow valley where the airport is located, I start to feel ...happy? Yes, happiness is the motto of the country of Bhutan-which is actually a kingdom. Interestingly, Bhutan is known for its development philosophy of Gross National Happiness. While working to finalize the poverty mapping work that our World Bank team has been collaborating on with Bhutans National Statistics Bureau (NSB) and the Gross National Happiness Commission (GNHC), I realized that I am happy not just because I have had the opportunity to be in such a beautiful place, but also as I have had the chance to work with some highly dedicated, capable (and yes, happy!) civil servants. The poverty-mapping exercise in Bhutan was carried out by a joint team of staff members from the NSB and the World Bank. The team uses a
Bhutan is a small Himalayan country experiencing vast changes as its traditional, Buddhist, collectivist culture meets Westernized culture in the process of globalization. The significant differences in culture and the idealization of the West has led to an increase in mental health issues in Bhutan, especially among the youth population. The government has recognized this and supports the growth of mental health professions. Currently, there are few mental health workers in Bhutan, but they have recently initiated a Bachelors-level counselor training program and have provided brief training to teacher counselors in schools to better address the rising problems. However, there is no information about how to internationalize the counseling profession to fit Bhutanese culture, and specifically to be most beneficial for clients. In this phenomenological study, I interviewed twelve Bhutanese mental health clients about their experiences with counseling. Their responses ultimately showed that the development

Introduction: Bhutan is progressing towards malaria elimination. The purpose of this evaluation was to assess the ability of the surveillance system from 2006-2012 to meet the objectives of the Bhutan Vector-borne Disease Control Programme (VDCP) and to highlight priorities requiring attention as the nation transitions to elimination.Methods: The evaluation was conducted using the Center for Disease Control guidelines for evaluating public health surveillance systems. Data sources included a search of publically available literature, VDCP program data, and interviews with malaria surveillance personnel. Blood slide quality assurance and control through formal assessment of slide preparation and measures of between reader correlation was performed. Results: Total malaria cases declined from 2006-2012. The average slide positivity rate decreased from 3.4% in 2006 to 0.2% in 2012. The proportion of non-residents in all cases increased to its highest value of 22.6% in 2012, and significant clustering in

The STEPS Noncommunicable Disease Risk Factors Survey uses a survey methodology developed by the World Health Organization (WHO) to help countries establish noncommunicable disease surveillance systems. Some surveys are conducted at the country level and others at the subnational level. The methodology prescribes three steps-questionnaire, physical measurements, and biochemical measurements. Core topics covered by most surveys are demographics, health status, and health behaviors. These provide data on socioeconomic risk factors and metabolic, nutritional, and lifestyle risk factors. Details may differ from country to country and from year to year. In Bhutan, a multi-stage stratified cluster sampling design was used for the sampling methodology. In total, 2,822 adults ages 18-69 participated in the survey.. ...
Looking at the two maps, one can see a correlation between poverty and accessibility. In general, poor areas tend to have low access to markets and poor connection to road networks. For example, the poorest dzongkhags in the South have very little access to road networks and markets. On the other hand, areas in western Bhutan that are highly connected to markets also have the lowest poverty levels. It is also worth noting that the maps only show correlations, and not causal relationships.. Remote areas are not necessarily always poor. For example, the remote sub-district of Lunana in the far north appears to be quite well off. This seems to defy conventional wisdom given that the area is high up in the mountains and can only be reached after 9 days of intense trekking from the district headquarter. And that district headquarter is not even connected to any roads!. It turns out that the local yak herders in Luana supplement their income by collecting a type of fungus called Cordyceps [4]. In ...
This trip takes us on a journey along an ancient, high-level, trade route in a country visited by only a lucky few. We trek through splendid rhododendron forests, past yak herder settlements, across several passes and camp beside clear, blue, mountain lakes with spectacular views of the peaks which border Tibet. We also experience Bhutans fascinating culture and on specific departures, its colourful festivals with masked dances and general joviality. Note that different departures follow different itineraries - see is this trip for you for more details.
Congratulations to those three on taking these very first Indian images of this very very rare butterfly, and for adding this species to the Indian butterfly fauna. You struck gold with this!

Gomphu Kora, a three day religious festival in Bhutan is popular not just for the local tribes but also popular for the Dakpa tribe from the Arunachal Pradesh. Gomphu literally means a meditation cave. According to the Bhutanese people, the name Gomphu, originated from a cave which was made out of rock face. A temple was also built in the exact location to pay tribute to this cave. The festival of Gomphu Kora comprises of numerous local customs and age-old rituals. According to a popular belief here, one should go to the cave today or tomorrow might be too late. Locals consider it to be a symbol of victory of the good over the evil. The cave seems to come alive during the festival and the blessing during this festival is considered to be highly auspicious. It is due to this belief, that thousands of devotees come to visit during the festival of Gomphu Kora ...
Protects the heart. C. sinensis may offer heart-health benefits, including the ability to treat arrhythmia. A 2014 study saw C. sinensis significantly reduce liver and heart injuries in rats.. This study shows that C. sinensis has potential for treating heart disease. Its approved in China to treat arrhythmia. Its thought that the adenosine in C. sinensis handles this effect. Adenosine is a naturally occurring substance that helps break down ATP.. Slows kidney disease. Traditionally, people believed that consuming C. sinensis strengthened the kidneys. This may be due to C. sinensiss ability to increase hydroxyl-corticosteroid and ketosteroid levels in the body.. In a 2011 study, researchers at Zhejiang University found that C. sinensis may inhibit renal fibrosis in rats. Renal fibrosis is a condition found in the later stages of kidney disease. Another study found that taking 3 to 5 grams of C. sinensis a day significantly improved kidney and immune function in those with chronic renal ...

For more than two decades no rabies cases have been reported in the interior areas of Bhutan, the occurrence of rabies cases in dogs and livestock being confined to the districts that border India.. Amongst people exposed to the rabies virus, post exposure prophylaxis (PEP) is a vital intervention estimated to prevent approximately 15 human deaths each year in Bhutan. However, PEP is not always appropriately used, resulting in high costs of treatment, comprising approximately 6% of the essential medicine expenditure in Bhutan.. On the other hand, a very small number of preventable human deaths due to rabies continue to occur, which may be associated with inappropriate PEP administration in areas of high risk for rabies. Potential therefore exists to both save significant costs and prevent rabies mortality by improving decision making of clinicians about the use of PEP.. Two collaborative investigation projects are being conducted on PEP usage in high rabies-risk and low rabies-risk areas by ...

Yes, in theory the Dagachhu power generation could be sold on the CDM market and enable Bhutan to receive Carbon credits and subsequent payment. However, the Koyoto Protocol and CDM modalities itself are under major reviews and there is no guarantee that the credits will be paid up without proper buyers and validation. Also, currently Bhutans total power consumption is only to the tune of only about 15% of our total generation and the rest are exported to India. This excludes Dagachhu and future hydropower projects that are potential for CDM benefits. Therefore, what we will be using for charging our electric cars will not be from the new and upcoming projects which could be used on the CDM market. The power from our existing Chukhha or Tala or Kurichhu are way more than we can ever use for chagrining our cars. CDM certification of new hydropower projects and use of electricity for electric cars are NOT one or other scenario in Bhutans case. ...

The Himalayas in general are an ornithological paradise: Nepal has more than 800 species, Sikkim and Bhutan more. Depending upon whose tally one adheres to, this compares favorably with the 1,200 to 1,800 species found in the entire Indian subcontinent. The abundance of birdlife reflects the extent of the diversity of life zones and habitats, as well as the central position of the Himalaya between two major biogeographical zones. The Kali Gandaki River of Nepal is usually considered the dividing line between the eastern and western avifauna. Himalayan birdlife was very much terra incognita until recently. Considering that the now well-catalogued Kingdom of Nepal has thrown up several species of birds new to science since the 1960s, one can only imagine what unexplored Bhutan has to offer. Birds can be seen in the highest altitudes, and many migrate over the Himalaya. Mountaineers have encountered choughs at 27,000 feet, heard snipes flying over the highest peaks at night, marveled at geese ...

More than 80 percent of the people of Bhutan depend on agriculture and animal husbandry for their livelihood. The farming system in Bhutan is highly dependent on the forests to sustain it. Non-wood forest products are harvested and used daily without much thought. The full impact of NWFPs on the rural economy has not yet been documented and assessed. Animal husbandry is an important contributor to the rural economy. Almost every household maintains a few cattle for draft power, animal products and for manure. Many people maintain large herds as a status symbol or as insurance in times of difficulty. The animal population has been recorded as 300,000 cattle and buffaloes, 28,000 yak, 40,000 sheep, 42,000 goats and 22,000 horses. The impact of these animals, which depend on the forests for fodder, has not yet been fully appreciated. As a general practice, herders drive the animals into the forests to forage for whatever is available and thus much of the forest is used as grazing land. During ...

Following the March 2013 outbreak of novel avian influenza A(H7N9) virus in humans and the subsequent isolation of the virus from chickens, ducks and pigeons in the Peoples Republic of China, concerns were raised that the H7N9 virus would spread beyond China through the poultry value chain linking to a number of bordering countries. For this reason, a rapid emergency surveillance exercise took place in Bhutan between May and July 2013 with the objective of determining whether influenza A(H7N9) virus was silently circulating in domestic poultry and wild birds in Bhutan. A total of 1,716 oropharyngeal, tracheal and cloacal swabs together with faecal droppings were collected from poultry, wild birds and feral pigeons throughout the country; these samples included 150 that had been previously collected for surveillance of influenza A(H5N1) virus. Overall, 733 of the samples were tested. A QIAamp(R) Viral RNA Mini K it was used to extract viral RNA from a mix of oropharyngeal, tracheal and cloacal ...

Our people need to maintain clean rooms and cook hygienic food. Such skills can be provided to the people in the rural villages. If only that happens we see the benefit of tourism being shared with all. Because right now only those who own big restaurants in urban centers and those who own major tour companies are the ultimate beneficiaries. That way we will have rich people getting richer while the poor will remain more or less mere spectator of this ever happening tourism sector. We need to think of new tourist destinations. For now, almost every tour company sells almost th ...
Tourism in Bhutan is managed through partnership of government regulators and private travel agencies under a policy summed up by the mantra high value, low impact. There is no restriction on visitor numbers; however, there is a minimum daily tariff fixed by the government.

What do you say to the idea of you and me moving to and living in Shangri La? That special place where all is peace and quiet. Where flowers bloom and animals nibble at the food in your hand? Where music constantly fills the air? Where there is almost no crime . . . and only smiling, loving people?. You might consider the Buddhist kingdom of Bhutan.

SOWA RIGPA from India direct. Sowa Rigpa བོད་ཀྱི་གསོ་བ་རིག་པ་ Ggso ba rig pa is the traditional name for Tibetan Medicine which has developed from Ayurveda on the Tibetan plateau, it has the same foundations but has unique methods and herbal preparation that are esteemingly powerful.
Thimphu (ཐིམ་ཕུག།) is the capital of the Kingdom of Bhutan, and with a population of around 80,000 is the nations largest city.
A plaque at the National Institute of Traditional Medicine in Thimphu, Bhutan, summarizes the root cause of illness as being a lack of knowledge of the self.. The traditional form of medicine in this South Asian country is called soba riga (or gSo-ba Rig-pa). Dr. Terpola, a doctor working at the Institutes clinic, explains how their medicine works by saying that according to the Tantra, a set of ancient Indian texts, all problems like attachment and ignorance originate in the mind and physical problems then manifest from those problems. It sounds like a broad generalization that could be totally unfounded, but when looking at the power of the mind, using the placebo effect as an example, it becomes easy to see just how much of a role the mind can play in causing illness.. According to Soba Rigpa, the body is composed of three constitutional elements: wind (lung - the energy of movement), bile (thriba - the energy of digestion) and phlegm (bethken - the energy of lubrication and structure). When ...
Given the history of India and Pakistan, it is easy to be sceptical about the chances of their latest peace initiative. So lets start with the positives.. Unlike past peace efforts which have veered between ill-prepared personal initiatives by political leaders and technical talks between bureaucrats which foundered for lack of direction from the top, the current phase combines the two. Prime Minister Manmohan Singhs impromptu invitation to his Pakistani counterpart Yusuf Raza Gilani to watch last weeks India-Pakistan cricket semi-final coincided with the resumption of the first structured dialogue between the two countries since the November 2008 attacks on Mumbai. The foreign secretaries, or top diplomats, of India and Pakistan met in Thimphu, Bhutan in February. In talks last week, the home secretaries of the two countries made progress in coordinating their investigations into the Mumbai attacks; the trade secretaries are expected to meet soon, as are the defence secretaries.. Moreover, ...
But the Eastern Himalayas, a region spanning Bhutan, Nepal, Tibet, north eastern India and the far north of Burma, is also one of the areas most under threat from climate change, a report by WWF warns.. It is feared the impacts of a warming climate, such as melting glaciers and flooding, will exacerbate existing environmental threats including logging, overgrazing, the wildlife trade and pollution.. Already only a quarter of the regions original habitat, which includes the lowland home of Asian elephants, clouded leopards, cobras and geckos and the high northern region where snow leopards, red pandas and blue sheep are found, remains.. The region harbours 10,000 plant species, 300 mammals, 977 bird species, 176 reptiles and 269 types of freshwater fish, has the highest density of the Bengal tiger and is the last bastion of the greater one-horned rhino, WWF said.. But some 163 species are globally threatened with extinction, the Eastern Himalayas - Where Worlds Collide report warns, with 14 of ...
The malaria burden in Bhutan decreased significantly during the study period with high coverage of long-lasting insecticidal nets. The foreseeable challenges that require national attention to maintain a malaria-free status after elimination are importation of malaria, especially from India; continued protection of the population in endemic districts through complete coverage with long-lasting insecticidal nets and indoor residual spraying; and exploration of local funding modalities post-elimination in the event of a reduction in international funding.. ...

The early conclusion from similar work conducted around the world is grim. "First order, the glaciers did what the CO2 did," Schaefer said. This is still a hypothesis that needs further testing, he said, "but if that holds … this would have dramatic impacts" not only on glaciers, but also the major ice sheets on Antarctica and Greenland.. "If ice is so really regulated by CO2, then we would certainly have to face the reality that we already have committed to absurd amounts of sea level rise," he said.. Mountain glaciers play a much smaller role in sea level rise than the polar ice sheets. But losing them would still have dramatic impacts on the societies living nearby, Schaefer said.. "We have a project in Bhutan in the Himalayas where basically the entire economy of this country is depending on hydropower that they sell to India, and the hydropower depends on the glacial melt when the monsoon is not there," Schaefer said. While there is plenty of meltwater today, the ice is shrinking so fast ...

It is no secret that India has had an appalling record in keeping her children healthy.. It is no secret that India has had an appalling record in keeping her children healthy. The country records deaths of over a million children annually before their fifth birthday due to under-nutrition-related causes. For matters of comparison, that number is higher than the entire population of Bhutan. Among the ones lucky enough to survive, more than half end up anaemic and almost 40 per cent are either stunted or underweight. It is shocking that despite losing precious segments of its population each year, discussions around its causes in the mainstream media are virtually non-existent.. Amartya Sen and Jean Dreze tested how frequently issues of health found their way into the editorial pages of Indias leading dailies. It turned out that in more than 300 articles between January and June 2000, there was not even a single health-related one. In a second test during the last six months of 2012, they found ...

In a study of nearly 700 patients with ethnic backgrounds from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal and Bhutan, UCSF researchers found that South Asian men had the same high rates of change in calcification of their artery walls over a five-year period as white men, the group with the highest rates of cardiovascular disease, Medical Xpress wrote.. South Asians are known to have a high chance of developing cardiovascular disease and represent more than 60 percent of cardiovascular disease patients worldwide. They also develop risk factors such as high blood pressure, cholesterol and diabetes at a younger age than other racial and ethnic groups. However, it remains unclear which clinical factors could help determine those at highest risk.. While South Asians have high cardiovascular disease rates, there are few prospective studies in the world that have focused on determining the risk factors, said lead author Alka Kanaya, MD, UCSF Health internist and professor of medicine at UCSF. ...

Himalayan Cataract Project : "The Himalayan Cataract Project (HCP) is establishing a sustainable eye care infrastructure in the Himalaya that empowers local doctors to provide high-quality ophthalmic care through skills-transfer and education. The HCP responds to a pressing need for eye care in the Himalayan region. Our programs in Nepal, Tibet, China, Bhutan, India, Sikkim, and Pakistan have restored sight to tens of thousands of blind people every year since 1994, and our efficacy is increasing. By teaching ophthalmic care at all levels, by establishing a first-rate eye care infrastructure through creating and mentoring facilities, by making all of our facilities financially self-sustaining, and by addressing eye care from the public health level up to subspecialty care, our programs have brought world-class eye care to the people of the Himalaya. We hope to soon cut into the backlog of people blinded by preventable and treatable causes in the region. We appreciate your support, which has made ...

The neurological reactions ranged from encephalitis to epilepsy, polyneuritis and multiple sclerosis. Community-based malaria surveillance at a high falciparum malaria prevalent area having a population of 17,000 (Turturikhanda GP) bordering Bhutan. Similar work on MSM transmission dynamics in developing world settings is lacking. We have previously shown that DNA vaccines encoding the HPV-16 E7 oncoprotein genetically fused to HSV-1 glycoprotein D (gD) enhance both the induction of E7-specific CD8+ T cell responses and therapeutic/prophylactic anti-tumor effects compared to vaccines encoding the non-fused HPV oncoproteins in mice [15], [27], [28]. During an outbreak of highly pathogenic avian influenza A virus of the H7N7 subtype in the Netherlands in 2003, 89 human cases were reported of which one was fatal [16,17]. In a community-based study of 15,127 individuals in Rakai, Uganda, the relationship between HIV plasma viral load and risk of transmission was clearly evident; in a multivariate ...

My story begins late one night in December 2008. Id just come home from a long and wonderful trip to Bhutan, Nepal and India and was in the midst of moving in with a man Id met and fallen in love with two summers before. Were both in good health, exercise regularly and keep our diet on the light side. But this night wed been out to a fancy restaurant. We were in a high mood, planning a celebration for our 70 and 75th birthdays as one big party in February. A few hours after Id gone to sleep, an intense cramping in my lower left side awakened me. My abdomen was bloated. My stomach felt hard as a rock. I couldnt lie still so I stood up. I immediately bent over in pain. Feeling pretty weak I supported myself with the back of a bedroom chair. Sitting or lying down felt worse. That night, I walked around and around and around the living room wondering what was wrong and what to do. Id suffered digestive discomfort for years but never anything like this. It was logical to believe Id picked up ...

Plant legislation falls within two main categories: a) plant health protection including plant quarantine and pesticides registration; and b) seed, plant variety, and biotechnology legislation. Governments aiming to improve their plant protection systems to facilitate agricultural trade with other countries -- especially if they have joined or are considering joining the World Trade Organization -- have approached FAO for assistance with updating their legislation or drafting new legislative instruments. Projects have been approved or are under way in Azerbaijan, Bhutan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Eritrea, Iran, Mauritius, Nepal, Nigeria and Tunisia. A regional project in the Caribbean region has led to the preparation and approval of draft plant protection law to be used as a model for the members of the Caribbean Community. For the FAO Legal Officers and consultants providing this technical assistance, the New Revised Text of the International Plant Protection Convention and the WTO ...
Neurocysticercosis (NCC) is a disease caused by central nervous system infection by the larval stage of the pork tapeworm, Taenia solium. In developing countries, NCC is a leading cause of adult-onset epilepsy. Case reports of NCC are increasing among refugees resettled to the United States and other nations, but the underlying prevalence among refugee groups is unknown. We tested stored serum samples from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Migrant Serum Bank for antibodies against T. solium cysts by using the enzyme-linked immunoelectrotransfer blot. Seroprevalence was high among all 4 populations tested: refugees from Burma (23.2%), Lao Peoples Democratic Republic (18.3%), Bhutan (22.8%), and Burundi (25.8%). Clinicians caring for refugee populations should suspect NCC in patients with seizure, chronic headache, or unexplained neurologic manifestations. Improved understanding of the prevalence of epilepsy and other associated diseases among refugees could guide recommendations for their
To genetically evaluate red pandas both in zoos and in Nepal. The red panda (Ailurus fulgens) is a charismatic, beautiful but threatened flagship species addressing Himalayan conservation issues. The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species lists the conservation status of red pandas as vulnerable, with an estimated population of less than 10,000 adult individuals surviving in the wild. This status is currently under review. The species is elusive and sightings are particularly rare due to its low densities, biology and inaccessibility of its habitat. Most of the previous work on their status has been based on counting their scats. Scats, but also hair or urine (in snow), are sources of DNA and enable conservationists and researchers to draw various valuable conclusions in assessing the status of a target species. Located at the conservation genetics group of the Senckenberg Research Institute, our international project aims to establish a non-invasive genetic monitoring scheme for the genetic ...

IAMAT | Bhutan | RabiesIAMAT | Bhutan | Rabies

A series of 3 pre-exposure rabies vaccination shots is advised for persons planning an extended stay or on work assignments in remote and rural areas, particularly in Africa, Asia, Central and South America. The pre-exposure series simplifies medical care if the person has been bitten by a rabid animal and gives enough time to travel from a remote area to seek medical attention. Although this provides adequate initial protection, you will require 2 additional post-exposure doses if you were exposed to the virus. The preferred vaccines for rabies pre-exposure vaccination and post-exposure therapy are HDCV (Human Diploid Cell Rabies Vaccine) and PCECV (Purified Chick Embryo Cell Vaccine). These two vaccines are interchangeable. Be aware that if you are in a remote area and are offered daily rabies treatment injections lasting 14 to 21 days, it may be one of the older animal brain-derived vaccines. We recommend that you do not take them due to serious side effects.. Note: Travellers who have not ...
