Transmission of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 through breast-feeding: how can it be prevented? (1/443)

One-third to two-thirds of maternal transmission of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) infection to breast-fed infants can be attributed to ingestion of breast milk. The presence of HIV-1 as cell-free and as cell-associated virus in milk has been documented. Several substances in breast milk may be protective against transmission, including maternal anti-HIV antibodies, vitamin A, lactoferrin, and secretory leukocyte protease inhibitor. The portal of virus entry in the infant's gastrointestinal tract is unknown but may involve breaches in mucosal surfaces, transport across M cells, or direct infection of other epithelial cells, such as enterocytes. Timing of transmission of HIV-1 during lactation should be further clarified. An early rebound of plasma viremia after withdrawal of antiretrovirals was recently detected. This rebound may reduce the benefit of antiretroviral prophylaxis when women breast-feed their infants. Interventions should be viewed from the public health perspective of risks of infant morbidity and mortality associated with breast-feeding versus risks from formula-feeding.  (+info)

Increasing the utilization of cost-effective health services through changes in demand. (2/443)

Attaining efficiency in a health care system with a budget constraint involves increasing the utilization of the most cost-effective services. This can be achieved by adjustments to prices, cost curves, or demand curves. In this paper, the potential for demand curve adjustments is examined by selecting two apparently cost-effective services (prenatal care and childhood immunization against tuberculosis), and analyzing the factors explaining their utilization. Data from recent household surveys in Burkina Faso and Niger are used. A multivariate analysis of utilization employs income, price, and taste variables. Utilization is highly sensitive to the distance which must be travelled to the health facility, a price, and taste variables. Utilization is highly sensitive to the distance which must be travelled to the health facility, a price variable. Members of certain ethnic groups tend to use the services less, other things being equal. The importance of demand-side factors like ethnicity points to certain kinds of policy interventions like information, education and communication activities which could increase the utilization of cost-effective services.  (+info)

Dirt and diarrhoea: formative research in hygiene promotion programmes. (4/443)

Investment in the promotion of better hygiene for the prevention of diarrhoeal diseases and as a component of water and sanitation programmes is increasing. Before designing programmes capable of sustainably modifying hygiene behaviour in large populations, valid answers to a number of basic questions concerning the site and the intended beneficiaries have to be obtained. Such questions include 'what practices favour the transmission of enteric pathogens?', 'what advantages will be perceived by those who adopt safe practices?' and 'what channels of communication are currently employed by the target population?' A study of hygiene and diarrhoea in Bobo-Dioulasso, Burkina Faso, used a mixture of methods to address such questions. This paper draws on that experience to propose a plan of preliminary research using a variety of techniques which could be implemented over a period of a few months by planners of hygiene promotion programmes. The techniques discussed include structured observation, focus group discussions and behavioural trials. Modest investment in such systematic formative research with clear and limited goals is likely to be repaid many times over in the increased effectiveness of hygiene promotion programmes.  (+info)

Performance of village pharmacies and patient compliance after implementation of essential drug programme in rural Burkina Faso. (5/443)

After implementation of a nation-wide essential drug programme in Burkina Faso a prospective study was undertaken consisting of non-participant observation in the health centre and in the village pharmacy, and of household interviews with the patients. The study covered all general consultations in nine health centres in three districts over a two-week period as well as all client-vendor contacts in the corresponding village pharmacies; comprising 313 patients in consultations and 498 clients in eight village pharmacies with 12 vendors involved in dispensing 908 drugs. Additionally patients were interviewed in their households. Performance and utilization of the village pharmacy: 82.0% of the drugs prescribed in the health centres were actually dispensed at the village pharmacy, 5.9% of the drugs were not available at the village pharmacy. Wrong drugs were dispensed in 2.1% of cases. 41.3% of the drugs dispensed in the village pharmacy were bought without a prescription. Differences are seen between the district and are put in relation to different onset of the essential drug programme. Patient compliance: Patients could recall the correct dosage for 68.3% of the drugs. Drug taking compliance was 63.1%, derived from the pills remaining in the households. 11.5% of the drugs had obviously been taken incorrectly to such an extent that the occurrence of undesired drug effects was likely. The study demonstrates the success of the essential drug programme not only in performance but also in acceptability and utilization by the population.  (+info)

Isolation and characterization of Desulfovibrio burkinensis sp. nov. from an African ricefield, and phylogeny of Desulfovibrio alcoholivorans. (6/443)

A sulfate-reducing bacterium, strain HDvT (T = type strain), was isolated from an anoxic ricefield soil. Cells were Gram-negative, non-sporulating curved rods motile by means of a single polar flagellum. Cytochrome c3 and desulfoviridin were present. In the presence of sulfate, glycerol, 1,2- and 1,3-propanediol, dihydroxyacetone, pyruvate, lactate, fumarate, maleate, malate and succinate were incompletely oxidized mainly to acetate. Sulfite, thiosulfate, elemental sulfur, fumarate, maleate and malate were utilized as alternative electron acceptors. In the absence of added electron acceptors, pyruvate, fumarate, maleate, malate and dihydroxyacetone were fermented. The DNA base composition was 67 mol% G + C. The phylogenetic, phenotypic and physiological characteristics of strain HDvT indicate that it is a new species of the genus Desulfovibrio, for which the name Desulfovibrio burkinensis sp. nov. is proposed; the type strain is HDvT (= DSM 6830T). Phylogenetic analysis confirmed that Desulfovibrio alcoholivorans was a distinct species supporting the previously published phenotypic data.  (+info)

Population biology of human onchocerciasis. (7/443)

Human onchocerciasis (river blindness) is the filarial infection caused by Onchocerca volvulus and transmitted among people through the bites of the Simulium vector. Some 86 million people around the world are at risk of acquiring the nematode, with 18 million people infected and 600,000 visually impaired, half of them partially or totally blind. 99% of cases occur in tropical Africa; scattered foci exist in Latin America. Until recently control programmes, in operation since 1975, have consisted of antivectorial measures. With the introduction of ivermectin in 1988, safe and effective chemotherapy is now available. With the original Onchocerciasis Control Programme of West Africa coming to an end, both the new African Programme for Onchocerciasis Control and the Onchocerciasis Elimination Programme for the Americas, rely heavily on ivermectin self-sustained mass delivery. In consequence, the need for understanding the processes regulating parasite abundance in human and simuliid populations is of utmost importance. We present a simple mathematical framework built around recent analyses of exposure- and density-dependent processes operating, respectively, within the human and vector hosts. An expression for the basic reproductive ratio, R0, is derived and related to the minimum vector density required for parasite persistence in localities of West Africa in general and northern Cameroon in particular. Model outputs suggest that constraints acting against parasite establishment in both humans and vectors are necessary to reproduce field observations, but those in humans may not fully protect against reinfection. Analyses of host age-profiles of infection prevalence, intensity, and aggregation for increasing levels of endemicity and intensity of transmission in the Vina valley of northern Cameroon are in agreement with these results and discussed in light of novel work on onchocerciasis immunology.  (+info)

Insecticide-treated curtains reduce the prevalence and intensity of malaria infection in Burkina Faso. (8/443)

A large, randomized controlled trial to investigate the impact of insecticide-treated curtains (ITC) on child mortality was conducted in an area of seasonal, holoendemic malaria in Burkina Faso. 158 communities totalling some 90,000 people were censused and grouped into 16 geographical clusters, 8 of which were randomly selected to receive ITC in June-July 1994, just prior to the rainy season. In September-October 1995, at the peak period of malaria transmission, a cross-sectional survey was conducted in 84 of the villages. A random sample of 905 children aged 6-59 months was identified and visited. 763 children (84%) were present at the time of the visit and recruited into the study. Mothers were asked about fever in the past 24 h, the child's temperature was taken, and a sample of blood collected to identify and quantify malaria infections and to measure haemoglobin (Hb) levels. Children protected by ITC were less likely to be infected with Plasmodium falciparum (risk ratio = 0.92; 95% CI 0.86, 0.98) or P. malariae (risk ratio = 0.42, 95% CI 0.19, 0.95). The mean intensity of P. falciparum infections was lower among children protected by ITC (899 vs. 1583 trophozoites/microliter; P < 0.001), while the mean Hb level was 0.4 g/dl higher (P < 0.001). While we found no evidence that ITC had an impact on the prevalence of malaria-associated fever episodes, the confidence intervals around our estimates of the impact of ITC on malaria morbidity were wide. We conclude that widespread implementation of ITC in this area of high malaria transmission led to a modest reduction in the prevalence of malaria infection and to a more substantial reduction in the intensity of these infections which caused increased Hb levels. We were unable to demonstrate any impact of ITC on malaria morbidity, but the wide confidence intervals around our point estimates do not preclude the possibility of a substantial impact.  (+info)

Elite sport results in electrocardiogram changes. Some are minor, others are likely to cause sudden death. The authors intended to describe the electrocardiogram features of top athletes at rest in Bobo-Dioulasso. This descriptive transversal study was carried out from August 2015 to February 2016 in the cardiology department of CHU Sanou Souro in Bobo-Dioulasso. The study sampled top athletes aged 17 to 35 with at least eight hours training per week for more than six months regardless of the type of discipline. Two hundred top-level athletes from 4 sport disciplines were included. The median age of athletes was 24 years (IIQ: 21 -27). The median duration in high level sport was 6 years (IIQ: 4 - 8) and the median length of weekly training sessions was 10 hours (IIQ: 10 - 10). Only 4% of the athletes had already conducted an Electrocardiogram (ECG). ECG abnormalities were reported in 90.5% of cases and sinus bradycardia was the most common abnormality reported in 72.5% of cases. Left ventricular and

Preface Last Updated: 12/3/2003 10:20 AM Burkina Faso, whose name means country of men with integrity, sits at the edge of the Sahel in the heart of West Africa. Despite being one of the poorest and least developed countries in the world, the Burkinabe are known for their hospitality. They have very few natural resources but have managed to fashion a pleasant and culturally sophisticated country out of the little that they do have. Despite progress on the democratic front, Burkina Faso faces many serious challenges. Literacy rates and school enrollment rank among the lowest in the entire world. With its limited natural resources and low education levels, the majority of Burkinabe remain engaged in subsistence agriculture. Approximately 7% of Burkinabe adults suffer from AIDS. To make matters worse, the recent turmoil in Cote d Ivoire has not only cut one of Burkina Faso s major trade routes, but it has dramatically reduced the ability of expatriate Burkinabe to find work and send remittances to ...
In the rural areas of sub-Saharan Africa, the majority of young children affected by malaria have no access to formal health services. Home treatment through mothers of febrile children supported by mother groups and local health workers has the potential to reduce malaria morbidity and mortality. A cluster-randomized controlled effectiveness trial was implemented from 2002-2004 in a malaria endemic area of rural Burkina Faso. Six and seven villages were randomly assigned to the intervention and control arms respectively. Febrile children from intervention villages were treated with chloroquine (CQ) by their mothers, supported by local women group leaders. CQ was regularly supplied through a revolving fund from local health centres. The trial was evaluated through two cross-sectional surveys at baseline and after two years of intervention. The primary endpoint of the study was the proportion of moderate to severe anaemia in children aged 6-59 months. For assessment of the development of drug efficacy

We are delighted to announce that Article 25 have completed the Project in Burkina Faso! Many Thanks to all supporters and everyone involved in Burkina Fasos project, fantastic work everyone!. Article 25 have been working with the community to improve their existing school facilities, helping local children to expand their education, develop skills and empower them with new life and leadership skills.. We have built a new model secondary school to bring enhanced education and vocational training opportunities to up to 1100 children in a rural area of northern Burkina Faso. Their previous school of 646 students was overcrowded, with 75-80 children in each class. In the afternoon, classrooms reach 35ºC, a temperature so uncomfortable that many children often fail to attend classes. Despite this challenging environment there was still an extremely high demand for entrance to the school. In the last year alone 100 children were turned away.. Community participatory work helped us to develop a ...
Burkina Faso, known as Upper Volta until its independence from France in 1960, and locally called the "land of the upright people," is a medium-sized land-locked country with no less than six neighbors, some of which periodically get into trouble...which makes it reasonably strategic in some ways. While it has not done as poorly as some other African states, its economic has certainly not prospered and many Burkinabe go abroad to earn a living. As for politics, it is another case of stability without democracy, even if there are periodic elections. Still, this is better than not even having stability. This third edition of Historical Dictionary of Burkina Faso covers its history through a chronology, an introductory essay, maps, appendixes, and an extensive bibliography. The dictionary section has over 1000 cross-referenced entries on important personalities, politics, economy, foreign relations, religion, and culture. This book is an excellent access point for students, researchers, and anyone ...
Malaria control programs are being jeopardized by the spread of insecticide resistance in mosquito vector populations. The situation in Burkina Faso is emblematic with Anopheles gambiae populations showing high levels of resistance to most available compounds. Although the frequency of insecticide target-site mutations including knockdown resistance (kdr) and insensitive acetylcholinesterase (Ace-1R) alleles has been regularly monitored in the area, it is not known whether detoxifying enzymes contribute to the diversity of resistance phenotypes observed in the field. Here, we propose an update on the phenotypic diversity of insecticide resistance in An. gambiae populations sampled from 10 sites in Burkina Faso in 2010. Susceptibility to deltamethrin, permethrin, DDT, bendiocarb and fenithrotion was assessed. Test specimens (N = 30 per locality) were identified to species and molecular form and their genotype at the kdr and Ace-1 loci was determined. Detoxifying enzymes activities including ...

This represents a prevalence of 20.1%. The sociodemographic and clinical characteristics of 101 patients with neurological problems during the study period are reported in this paper. This case series represents 14% of the HIV-positive admissions. The mean age was 35.7 years and 43% of the cases were aged 30 to 40 years. Sex-ratio was 1.6 male for 1 female. Focal deficits were observed in 36 of cases. Peripheral neuropathy (37%), meningitis or meningoencephalitis (20%), fitting (8%) and myelitis (8%) were the other clinical presentations. The etiology of the focal deficits was not ascertained because of the lack of tomodensitometry, specific serology and necropsy. Any neurological manifestation in a HIV seropositive patient should prompt investigations in order
A food-to-food fortification strategy has been designed based on traditional foods of Burkina Faso to fight against micronutrient deficiencies in young children. Leafy vegetable sauces were formulated to improve their micronutrient contents and bioavailability. This efficacy study was designed to assess the effects of the regular consumption (one meal per day, 6 days per week) of these leafy-vegetable sauces enriched or not with liver on iron, zinc and vitamin A status, growth and morbidity of young children from poor urban districts of Ouagadougou. The study is conducted by IRD and IRSAT-DTA and will last 6 months. 432 12-15 month-old children will be recruited and randomly assigned to one of the four following arms: three intervention groups, the two first receiving leafy vegetable sauce, the third one receiving one meal made of the fortified Misola gruel. In these three arms, blood samples will be collected at the beginning and at the end of the study. The fourth arm is an external control ...
Fatoumata Ouattara and Katerini Storeng analysed abortion policy in Burkina Faso, a country with a restrictive abortion law where most abortions are unsafe, resulting in high levels of abortion-related morbidity and mortality.

Health workers, researchers and policy makers participated in a lively discussion on the social and public health issues related to unsafe abortion.. The conference ...
Burkina Faso (formerly Upper Volta) achieved independence from France in 1960. Repeated military coups during the 1970s and 1980s were followed by multiparty elections in the early 1990s. Former President Blaise COMPAORE (1987-2014) resigned in late October 2014 following popular protests against his efforts to amend the constitutions two-term presidential limit. An interim administration organized presidential and legislative elections - held in November 2015 - where Roch Marc Christian KABORE was elected president. The country experienced terrorist attacks in its capital in 2016, 2017, and 2018 and continues to mobilize resources to counter terrorist threats mainly in its northern and eastern regions. It experienced over 100 attacks by violent extremists in the first quarter of 2019. Growing insecurity resulted in more than 100,000 internally displaced persons and 1,300 closed schools. The Government of Burkina Faso has made numerous arrests of terrorist suspects, augmented the size of its ...
Norovirus (NoV) constitutes the second most common viral pathogen causing pediatric diarrhea after rotavirus. In Africa, diarrhea is a major health problem in children, and yet few studies have been performed regarding NoV. The association of histo-blood group antigens (HBGA) and susceptibility to NoV infection is well established in Caucasian populations with non-secretors being resistant to many common NoV strains. No study regarding HBGA and NoV susceptibility has yet been performed in Africa. We collected 309 stool and 208 saliva samples from diarrheal children in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso; May 2009 to March 2010. NoV was detected using real-time PCR, and genotyped by sequencing. Saliva samples were ABO, Lewis and secretor phenotyped using in house ELISA assays. NoV was detected in 12% (n = 37) of the samples. The genotype diversity was unusually large; overall the 37 positive samples belonged to 14 genotypes. Only children ,2 years of age were NoV positive and the GII.4 NoVs were more ...

This study aims to evaluate the immunogenicity and reactogenicity of 13-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine among infants, toddlers and children in Bobo-Dioulasso, Burkina Faso. Infants will be randomized to receive vaccine at 6, 10, 14 weeks or at 6 weeks, 14 weeks and 9 months of age. Serotype-specific serum IgG, OPA and nasopharyngeal colonization will be assessed at 6 weeks, 18 weeks, 9 months and 10 months of age. Toddlers 12-15 months of age will be randomized to receive either a single dose of PCV13 or 2 doses 2 months apart. Serotype-specific serum IgG and OPA will be measured pre-dose 1 and again 3 months later. Children 2 to 4 years of age will receive a single dose of PCV13 and have IgG and OPA assessments pre-vaccination and 1 month post-vaccination.. The immunogenicity and reactogenicity of PCV13 in the standard schedule groups (e.g. 6, 10, 14 weeks for infants and single dose for toddlers) will be compared to that observed in the PCV13 licensure trials.

The review of studies performed in Bobo-Dioulasso over the past decade suggested a substantial change in STI ecology and epidemiology. In women, the prevalence of ulcerative STI such as chancroid and syphilis have become extremely rare in low and high risk groups. The prevalence of NG and, to a lesser extent, that of TV and CT followed a similar decline. Furthermore, the role of CT and NG in the aetiology of VDS and urethral discharge in men also markedly declined, suggesting a global and sharp decrease of CT and NG load in the community.. Beside these classic STIs, the prevalence of other genital infections, such as BV and CA, tended also to decline in the general population but not among CSW.. Similarly, HIV prevalence and probably HIV incidence curved down in both high risk groups and the general population over the same period of observation.. There is no doubt that the interpretation of these ecological trends has a few limitations. Firstly, the studies selected for this work were not ...
A study of the prevalence of bovine tuberculosis and brucellosis was conducted in dairy cattle farms in and around the city of Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. It reveals the potential economic and health impact of these two major zoonoses in the study area. Three farming systems were included in the study. A total of 1,420 cattle were tested for tuberculosis and 1,689 cattle were tested for brucellosis. The intradermal tuberculin test was used for tuberculosis, and the buffered antigen test and indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay were used for brucellosis. The overall prevalence rate is estimated to be 6.05% for tuberculosis and 3.61% for brucellosis. The prevalence rates of tuberculosis and brucellosis in urban and peri-urban dairy cattle farms in Ouagadougou were found to be high. As these two production-linked diseases are zoonotic, they could pose a major risk to human health and contribute significantly to reducing animal production and productivity in the areas covered by the study. ...

Burkina Faso is the 3rd poorest country in the World and has only 41 nurses, 13 midwives and 10 doctors per 100,000 people. With a GDP per capita of $1,200, opportunities for training and education are therefore extremely limited for Burkinabè health care providers.. For the last 3 years Medical Aid Films, a charity supported by The Portland Hospital has teamed up with the FIGO (Federation Internationale des Gynecologues Obstetriciens) to run courses in Sub-Saharan Africa for doctors and midwives. The course took place at the Centre Hospitalie Universitaire Ouedraogo in the capital Ougadougou during the week of the 11-17 June and was attended by 40 Obstetricians and 30 Midwives. The Societe des Gynecologues et Obstetriciens du Burkina (SOGOB) led by Professor Michel Akotionga is very dedicated to organize local training courses for their junior doctors and midwives but the week before departing,.

Background Epidemic meningococcal meningitis remains a serious health threat in the African meningitis belt. New meningococcal conjugate vaccines are relatively costly and their efficiency will depend on cost savings realized from no longer having to respond to epidemics. Methods We evaluated the cost and impacts to the public health system of the 2007 epidemic bacterial meningitis season in Burkina Faso through a survey at the different level of the health system. A micro-economic approach was used to evaluate direct medical and non medical costs for both the public health system and households, as well as indirect costs for households. Results The total national cost was 9.4 million US$ (0.69 US$ per capita). Health system costs were 7.1 million US$ (1.97% of annual national health spending), with 85.6% for reactive vaccination campaigns. The remaining 2.3 million US$ was borne by households of meningitis cases. The mean cost per person vaccinated was 1.45 US$; the mean cost of case management ...
The National Survey Adolescents was launched in 2004 in four Sub-Saharan African countries--Burkina Faso, Ghana, Malawi, and Uganda--to provide detailed information on adolescent risk-taking and health-seeking behavior as related to HIV, STDs and unintended pregnancy. The study examined a range of factors (e.g., behavioral, sociocultural, economic) that could lead to increased vulnerability to risk. The study also encompassed knowledge of means of prevention, sources of trusted information and health care, and impediments to adolescents abilities to apply their knowledge and take preventive action. The survey in Burkina Faso was administered between April and June 2004. Using a two-stage stratified sample design that selected households from rural and urban clusters, 5,400 households were listed for initial screening. After an initial interview in each household, individual surveys were administered in person to adolescents between the ages of 12 and 19 who were de facto or de jure members of ...

An unmatched case-control study was conducted. Severe malaria cases and mild malaria controls were children (aged 1 month - 15 years) of Mossi ethnicity, admitted to hospital with signs of severe and uncomplicated malaria, respectively. The children were recruited from patients admitted to the paediatric ward of three hospitals in Ouagadougou (Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Yalgado Ouédraogo, Centre Médical Paul VI and Centre Médical Saint Camille) during the high malaria transmission seasons of 1993-94.. The criteria for inclusion followed the definitions stated by the World Health Organization (WHO). Severe malaria was defined by the presence of P. falciparum in the thick blood film associated with at least one of the following conditions: prostration (incapacity of child to sit without help in absence of coma), unrousable coma (Blantyre coma score ≤ 2), repeated generalised convulsions (more than two episodes in the preceding 24 hr), severe anaemia (haemoglobin ,5 g/dl), hypoglycemia ...

Taking into account the priority factors mentioned above, Burkina Faso, Mali, and Niger were chosen as the first three countries for phased vaccine introduction. Burkina Faso has been the most affected country in the last decade, Niger is a heavily affected country, and Mali hosts a clinical study site. The first round of vaccination took place in September 2010 in Mali (2 districts immunized), Niger (1 district), and Burkina Faso (1 district). Mali immunized an additional 21 health districts during the second round of vaccination in December 2010, while Niger immunized an additional 10 districts. Burkina Faso became the first African country to introduce MenAfriVac® nationwide and immunized more than 11 million people between 6-15 December 2010.

Downloadable! In Burkina Faso, the analysis of the impact of the regional urbanization in terms of child malnutrition of less than 5 years, based on a spatial econometrics approach according tothe administrative division of the 30 provinces, using the demographic and health surveys of 1992-93 and 1998-99, arrives at three conclusions. Firstly, the urbanization is accompanied, on the one hand, of a reduction of the levels of wasting, underweight and stunting - a doubling of the rate of regional urbanization generates a reduction from 5,2 to 5,8 percent of the rate of child malnutrition of less than 5 years -, and,on the other hand, of a rise in the inequality of child malnutrition, expressed by the relationsweight for age and height for age - a doubling of the rate of regional urbanization implies a rise of about 30 percent in the inequality indicators of child malnutrition, except wasting. In addition, if the level of stunting increased between 1992-93 and 1998-99, the econometric estimates do not

Downloadable! The authors investigate the dynamics of poverty and income inequality in a cross-section of socio-economic groups and geographical regions over the five-year growth period following the 1994 devaluation of the CFA franc in Burkina Faso. Results show rapidly increasing urban poverty accompanied by rising income inequality, declining poverty -growth elasticities, and significant changes in the poverty map. In rural areas, the incidence of poverty remained the same and income inequality did not increase. In contrast, the distribution of welfare across socio-economic groups was more stable. The rank ordering of socioeconomic groups on the welfare scale did not change during the post-devaluation growth period. Poverty remains largely a rural phenomenon, whose inelastic nature may justify a shift toward growth-oriented policies that at least maintain the rural poors share of income to reduce poverty in the medium term. Among factors that feed into income inequality: disparities in wages and in

Background: The colostrum of HIV-infected mothers contains a high number of HIV copies and is considered highly infectious. Furthermore it contains large numbers of macrophage and other mononuclear cells that are known to incorporate virus. While prevention protocols in Western countries suggest the interruption of breast feeding, at least for the first few months of life, this practice is not advisable in developing countries. Methodology: The aim of this study was to determine the HIV load and the concentrations of IL-18, IL-16, IL-12, TGF-beta1 and TGF-beta2 in the colostrum of HIV-infected mothers living in Burkina Faso. The women all received nevirapine prophylaxis during labour. Results: The viral load in the colostrum decreased rapidly during the first three days following delivery, while the concentration of IL-18 and IL-16 increased in the same period. IL-12, TGF-beta1 and TGF-beta2 did not show significant variations in the first three days after delivery. Conclusions: Since the viral ...

Unitaid is funding a consortium, led by Expertise France, that seeks to eliminate cervical cancer in Burkina Faso, Côte dIvoire, Guatemala and the Philippines through secondary prevention (i.e., detecting disease early to slow or halt its progress). The three-year SUCCESS project is designed to shift the countries from a largely opportunistic cervical cancer screening model to a systematic approach centered on innovations related to: 1) reinforced and simplified cervical cancer screening through the introduction of human papilloma virus (HPV) testing with self-collection sampling; 2) secondary prevention of cervical cancer including use of efficient methods for treatment of cervical precancerous lesions such as thermal ablation; and 3) intensified dissemination of information on cervical cancer and new preventive technologies. In so doing, SUCCESS aims to support countries to "leapfrog" to a state-of-the-art services model recommended by the World Health Organization. As the implementing ...
