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)

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.

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 ...

Uncorrected refractive error is the leading cause of visual impairment; 48.9% globally and 62.9% in South Asia (Bhutan is part of this region) as estimated by the Vision Loss Expert Group (VLEG). Recent studies document a wide global variation in the prevalence of refractive error and predict that without control interventions the prevalence of myopia will significantly increase globally, affecting nearly 5 billion people by 2050. Considering its high prevalence and significant socioeconomic impact, refractive error has gained priority as a public health challenge, particularly in children.. Bhutan did not have any authentic evidence on prevalence of visual impairment due to uncorrected refractive error in the country. The WHO Global Action Plan 2014-2019 emphasized evidence generation for blindness and visual impairment and evidence-based planning and intervention. To do so, IAPB SEA, Primary eye care department of Ministry of Health , Royal Government of Bhutan carried out a nation-wide survey ...
Paris polyphylla is harvested unsustainably in Asia. Lack of accurate information and adequate research on P. polyphylla in Bhutan is a challenge for its sustainability. This cross-sectional survey assessed local peoples knowledge, attitude, practice, and economic benefits of P. polyphylla in Mongar Gewog, Bhutan. Face-to-face interviews using semi-structured questionnaires were conducted to collect data from 200 households selected via exponential non-discriminative snowball sampling technique in early 2020. The results showed that people are aware of the medical and commercial values of P. polyphylla. They are also aware of the declining population of P. polyphylla due to unsustainable harvesting. The respondents have high positive attitude towards conservation of the plant in their locality. However, their knowledge and attitude did not support their practice and belief. About 46% of households have started to domesticate the plant. Thus, this study recommends creating awareness on ...

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
Background: As an important marker for health equity and access, under-five mortality (UFM) is a primary measure for socioeconomic development. The importance of reducing UFM has been further emphasized in an ambitious target under Sustainable Development Goals. The factors influencing UFM are not adequately understood in Bhutan. Methods: The most recent dataset of the Bhutan National Health Survey (BNHS) 2012 was used in this study. Multiple logistic regression analysis using a backwards elimination approach was performed to identify significant factors influencing UFM. All statistical analyses were adjusted for the complex study design due to the multistage stratified cluster sampling used in BNHS. Results: Bhutans UFM rate was 37 per 1000 live births. The weighted mean age of the children was 7.3 years (SD: 1.53; range: 3-12). Mothers age, household size, access to electricity and sanitation, residential region, and parity were the key factors associated with UFM. The UFM risk was significantly
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
PCV prevents the transmission of pneumococcal bacterial diseases such as pneumonia, otitis media, bacteraemia and meningitis, some of the major causes of morbidity and death among Bhutanese children. The findings showed that both PCV10 and PCV13 offer good value for money in Bhutan but PCV13 yields better health outcomes and has a lower five-year budget impact.. Stakeholders including Bhutans High-Level Committee supported the results of the study; subsequently, cabinet members approved the introduction of the vaccine which was introduced into national routine immunization services in 2018.. Following this successful collaboration, Bhutanese stakeholders are now increasingly using HTA in resource allocation decisions.. In 2017, EMTD began an economic evaluation of the rotavirus vaccine (which prevents the rotavirus infection, a leading cause of severe diarrhoea in children) with support from PATH and iDSI. The study found that, at the current cost-effectiveness threshold in Bhutan, the ...

Bhutan Table of Contents Bhutans health-care development accelerated in the early 1960s with the establishment of the Department of Public Health and the opening of new hospitals and dispensaries throughout the country. By the early 1990s, health care was provided through some twentynine general hospitals (including five leprosy hospitals, three army hospitals, and one mobile hospital), forty-six dispensaries, sixty-seven basic health units, four indigenous-medicine dispensaries, and fifteen malaria eradication centers. The major hospitals were in Thimphu, Geylegphug, and Tashigang. Hospital beds in 1988 totaled 932. There was a severe shortage of health-care personnel with official statistics reporting only 142 physicians and 678 paramedics, about one health-care professional for every 2,000 people, or only one physician for almost 10,000 people. Training for health-care assistants, nurses aides, midwives, and primary health-care workers was provided at Thimphu General Hospitals Health ...

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

Nevertheless, here is what can only ever be an awkward and inadequate attempt to introduce you to our new life here in Bhutan and to explain just a little about why it is so darn special. It is in no way complete and it certainly lacks details, but hey…. its a start.. Bhutan is often described as the last Shangri-La, and its easy for me to see why. It is the most beautiful and unique country I have ever had the privilege of visiting. Beauty permeates everything - the landscapes, the architecture, the people, the culture, the rituals, the religion, the language, and even the smallest of interactions.

continuing talks and confidence-building measures work toward reducing tensions over Kashmir that nonetheless remains militarized with portions under the de facto administration of China (Aksai Chin), India (Jammu and Kashmir), and Pakistan (Azad Kashmir and Northern Areas); India does not recognize Pakistans ceding historic Kashmir lands to China in 1964; China and India continue their security and foreign policy dialogue started in 2005 related to the dispute over most of their rugged, militarized boundary, regional nuclear proliferation, and other matters; China claims most of Indias Arunachal Pradesh to the base of the Himalayas; lacking any treaty describing the boundary, Bhutan and China continue negotiations to establish a common boundary alignment to resolve territorial disputes arising from substantial cartographic discrepancies, the largest of which lie in Bhutans northwest and along the Chumbi salient; Burmese forces attempting to dig in to the largely autonomous Shan State to rout ...
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 ...
Get your facts straight, before ridiculing and attacking the Tibetan people. Mt. Everest for example, is Nepals source of income, not Tibets and Tibet never had a tourist population. It was a closed country, devoted to happiness and practicing Buddha Dharma - Bhutan is the same and has only recently opened its doors. Tibet was renowned for its pristine environment and its environmentally friendly attitude towards life - so is Bhutan. Now Tibet has become a rich source of uranium mining for the Chinese and the Tibetan people, like Native Americans and Australian Aboriginals are being bred out and killed off at a rapid rate while the world does nothing. The streets and roads are filled in with concrete, dogs were slaughtered in their thousands in early 2000 in a cleansing of Tibetan things. People are imprisoned for carrying a photo of HH Dalai Lama and no one is notified of this - they vanish! The list is endless ...
The red panda is found in a mountainous band from western Nepal through northeastern India and Bhutan and into China, Laos and northern Myanmar. The species also lives throughout mountainous areas of southwestern China. Red pandas only live in temperate forests in the foothills of the Himalayas. They reside at altitudes generally between 1500 and 4800 meters where the temperature is generally cool, and there is little annual variation. A bamboo understory grows in these forests and provides the bulk of the red pandas diet. However, these patches of bamboo are only found in narrow bands throughout the red pandas range. Thus, although red pandas are distributed across thousands of miles of territory, they are restricted to these small, fragile areas.. The red pandas diet mostly consists of bamboo, very unusual for a mammal. Their broad teeth and strong jaws allow them to chew bamboos tough leaves and stalks. They also have a small, bony projection on their wrists that helps them grip bamboo ...

Limited to the Himalayas, it is the largest of the Apis species. So far it has only been identified in the mountainous regions of Bhutan, the Chinese province of Yunnan, India, and Nepal. It mostly nests at altitudes between 2,500 and 3,000 m (8,200 and 9,800 ft), building very large nests under overhangs on the southwestern faces of vertical cliffs. One nest can contain as much as 60 kg (130 lb) of honey. The bees forage at altitudes of up to 4,100 m (13,500 ft). Due to its peculiar nesting behavior, the Himalayan giant honey bee is also referred to as the Himalayan cliff honey bee. The term Himalayan honey bee is sometimes used more informally for any of the four varieties of honey bees that are found in the Himalayan region; Apis cerana, Apis florea, Apis dorsata and Apis dorsata laboriosa. There are three different types of Apis dorsata laboriosa honey: spring or red honey that is created from flowers at higher altitudes, spring honey created from flowers at mid and lower altitudes, and ...

Traditionally, the Cordyceps Mushroom supplement came from an Asian mushroom known as Cordyceps sinesis (C. sinesis), which sprouts from the body of dead caterpillar in the wild in the mountainous regions above 11,000 feet in Tibet, Nepal and Bhutan. Cordyceps fungus has been and still is used for medicinal purposes in China. It reportedly was also used by some Chinese athletes as a non-detectable performance-enhancing substance during the Olympics Games in 1993. Today, demand for the fungus is increasing and is used more for its energy-generating and libo-enhancing properties. GCIs strategic manufacturing partner is the only producer in the world of the super potent Cordyceps sinensis Alohaensis hybrid strain.

A holistic, balanced approach is greatly needed, one that respects these wider benefits and doesnt just try to manage ad hoc problems as they arise. This should begin by listening to children, as is their right under article 12 of the Convention. Children have plenty to say about the upsides and downsides of the internet, and about what should be done. They call for internet access, digital literacy and greater support, recognising the huge breadth of ways in which the digital world is reconfiguring their wellbeing and life changes:. If someone is sick in the family, we can use the internet to match symptoms to the sickness and determine its severity. (Bhutan, girl, 18). It is through the internet that many young people join terrorist groups, because the internet helps but on the other hand it destroys. (Central African Republic, boy, 15). Teachers should teach classes that help us use digital technology appropriately. (Japan, girl, 17). These are just a small selection of the wealth of ...

Introduction: Intraosseous lipoma is a very rare neoplasm accounting for , 0.1 % of primary bone tumors. Pain is the leading symptom in majority of the reported cases but it can be asymptomatic. There is slight male predominance in occurrence of this lesion. The plain radiological findings are not specific and requires differential diagnosis. The lesion is mostly diagnosed by histopathological examination.. Case report: A 31-year-old male presented with localized pain around the medial aspect of right ankle joint for one week. Examination revealed mild tenderness over the distal part of the right tibia over the medial aspect. Plain radiograph of the right leg showed well-defined expansile osteolytic lesion with sclerotic rim and calcified matrix at metaphysis of distal tibia.

Abstract. Bactrocera minax is a major citrus pest distributed in China, Bhutan and India. The long pupal diapause duration of this fly is a major bottleneck for artificial rearing and underlying mechanisms remain unknown. Genetic information on B. minax transcriptome and gene expression profiles are needed to understand its pupal diapause. High-throughput RNA-seq technology was used to characterize the B. minax transcriptome and to identify differentially expressed genes during pupal diapause development. A total number of 52,519,948 reads were generated and assembled into 47,217 unigenes. 26,843 unigenes matched to proteins in the NCBI database using the BLAST search. Four digital gene expression (DGE) libraries were constructed for pupae at early diapause, late diapause, post-diapause and diapause terminated developmental status. 4,355 unigenes showing the differences expressed across four libraries revealed major shifts in cellular functions of cell proliferation, protein processing and ...
As a species, the rhino has suffered severely because of an almost mystical faith that some Asian peoples place in medicines contained in the Rhino horn. Only 17,000 Indian, 500 Sumatran, and a scarce 70 Javan rhinos -- the rarest in world -- remain.

They graze mainly on grasses and other aquatic plants, many of which are submerged. To get at a plant below the surface, the rhino submerges its head, pulls a plant out by the roots, and lifts its head out of the water to chew and swallow its newly grasped meal. ...
