Sales practices of patent medicine sellers in Nigeria. (1/85)

A survey was carried out among patent medicine dealers to evaluate their practices that militate against laws governing prescriptions-only medicines in Nigeria. Questionnaires were distributed to 46 patent medicine dealers and later collected from them on appointment. Analysis of the results showed that all the patent medicine dealers were aware of the law governing the sale of prescription drugs in Nigeria. Seventy-five per cent of them stock such drugs. Patent medicine dealers obtain their drugs largely from sales representative of pharmaceutical companies as well as from industries. Inappropriate use of sales boys and girls in patent medicine stores and defective government policies were all investigated.  (+info)

Detecting child abuse and neglect--are dentists doing enough? (2/85)

Dental health professionals continue to under-report child abuse, despite growing awareness of their potential role in detecting this crime. This article presents an overview of child abuse and neglect and outlines the indicators that may alert dental professionals to possible maltreatment of child patients. Documentation protocols are also provided to aid in reporting child abuse identified in the dental office.  (+info)

Analysis of factors related to illegal tobacco sales to young people in Ontario. (3/85)

OBJECTIVE: To identify and to discuss factors influencing illegal merchant sales of tobacco to underage people in Ontario, Canada. DESIGN: Results were obtained through random retail compliance checks of tobacco merchants. A multivariate analysis specified the relationship between selected independent variables and the willingness of tobacco merchants to sell to minors. The selected independent variables included retail operation type, community population size, the presence of tobacco production, signage, sex and age of volunteers, smoking prevalence rates, and enforcement rates. PARTICIPANTS: A random, stratified sample of 438 tobacco retailers in 186 communities in Ontario. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: Willingness of merchants to sell tobacco to minors. RESULTS: Older youths and girls were more likely to be sold tobacco products. Purchase attempts carried out in tobacco-producing regions were also statistically related to illegal sales. CONCLUSIONS: Policy efforts to control youth access to tobacco in Canada may need to invoke legislation requiring merchants to request proper identification from customers who appear to be under the age of 25, and who seek to purchase tobacco products. Further attention could also be directed at tobacco control policies and enforcement strategies that need to consider the unique challenges faced by jurisdictions where the tobacco industry is a powerful presence.  (+info)

Withholding/withdrawing treatment from neonates: legislation and official guidelines across Europe. (4/85)

Representatives from eight European countries compared the legal, ethical and professional settings within which decision making for neonates takes place. When it comes to limiting treatment there is general agreement across all countries that overly aggressive treatment is to be discouraged. Nevertheless, strong emphasis has been placed on the need for compassionate care even where cure is not possible. Where a child will die irrespective of medical intervention, there is widespread acceptance of the practice of limiting aggressive treatment or alleviating suffering even if death may be hastened as a result. Where the infant could be saved but the future outlook is bleak there is more debate, but only two countries have tested the courts with such cases. When it comes to the active intentional ending of life, the legal position is standard across Europe; it is prohibited. However, recognising those intractable situations where death may be lingering and unpleasant, Dutch paediatricians have reported that they do sometimes assist babies to die with parental consent. Two cases have been tried through the courts and recent official recommendations have set out standards by which such actions may be assessed.  (+info)

The family rule: a framework for obtaining ethical consent for medical interventions from children. (5/85)

Children's consent to treatment remains a contentious topic, with confusing legal precepts and advice. This paper proposes that informed consent in children should be regarded as shared between children and their families, the balance being determined by implicit, developmentally based negotiations between child and parent--a "family rule" for consent. Consistent, operationalized procedures for ethically obtaining consent can be derived from its application to both routine and contentious situations. Therefore, use of the "family Rule" concept can consistently define negligent procedure in obtaining consent from children, and could be used as a unifying framework in the development of new professional guidelines. A "guideline"-based approach to children's consent to treatment may offer greater individuality than a "rights"-based approach, though careful training and oversight will be needed for it to be effective.  (+info)

Early entrance to the job market and its effect on adult health: evidence from Brazil. (6/85)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the effect of employment in childhood on self-reported health in adulthood. METHOD: A cross-sectional household survey, with households selected through two-stage sampling, in urban and rural areas in the northeast and southeast of Brazil. A total of 4940 individuals, aged between 18 and 65 years, were included. The main outcome measure was self-reported health. RESULTS: There has been a marked reduction in the proportion of people starting work during childhood although, even in the youngest age group, nearly 20% of males began work when under 10. Early entrance into the labour market is strongly associated with low levels of both education and income, with income differentials remaining at later ages. Age starting work is also linked to current household income, with approximately 35% of those starting work when 15 or over currently in the top quartile of household income, compared with 12% of those starting work when under 10. Males, those living in rural areas, and non-whites are most likely to start work early. In univariate analyses, the younger a person started working, the greater the probability of reporting less than good health status as an adult. This persists through all ages, although the difference attenuates with increasing age. In multivariate analyses, adjustment for education or household income substantially reduces the effect but fails to eliminate it in several age bands up to the age of 48, indicating that age starting work has an independent effect on self-reported health in adulthood. CONCLUSIONS: The debate about the appropriate policy response to child labour is complex, requiring a balance between protecting the health of the child and safeguarding the income of the family. These findings indicate the need for more research on the long-term sequelae of beginning work at an early age.  (+info)

Is it in a neonate's best interest to enter a randomised controlled trial? (7/85)

Clinicians are required to act in the best interest of neonates. However, it is not obvious that entry into a randomised controlled trial (RCT) is in a neonate's best interest because such trials often involve additional onerous procedures (such as intramuscular injections) in return for which the neonate receives unproven treatment or a placebo. On the other hand, neonatology needs to develop its evidence base, and RCTs are central to this task. The solution posited here is based on two points. First, "best interest" is not equivalent to "the best possible interest" only to "best interest within a certain realm". The realm of deliberation when asking the title question is the neonate's health. Deliberating in this realm may involve the exclusion from consideration of some factors that might be thought relevant (such as parental wealth). Furthermore, circumstances may dictate the need to deliberate on other factors that might be thought irrelevant (such as health care resources). Second, deciding on a neonate's best interest does not involve "putting oneself in its shoes". Rather, it involves asking in what it has an interest, or stake. These will include some things in which we all, as human beings, have a stake, such as medical progress. Putting these two points together, in the realm of health the answer to whether RCT entry is in a neonate's best interest is usually very finely balanced. Where this is the case, it is reasonable to invoke a broader notion of best interest and include a broader range of elements in which the neonate has a stake, including medical progress. In this way RCT entry can, usually, be said to be in a neonate's best interest.  (+info)

Prophylactic interventions on children: balancing human rights with public health. (8/85)

Bioethics committees have issued guidelines that medical interventions should be permissible only in cases of clinically verifiable disease, deformity, or injury. Furthermore, once the existence of one or more of these requirements has been proven, the proposed therapeutic procedure must reasonably be expected to result in a net benefit to the patient. As an exception to this rule, some prophylactic interventions might be performed on individuals "in their best interests" or with the aim of averting an urgent and potentially calamitous public health danger. In order to invoke these exceptions, a stringent set of criteria must first be satisfied. Additionally, where the proposed prophylactic intervention is intended for children, who are unlikely to be able to provide a meaningfully informed consent, a heightened scrutiny of any such measures is required. We argue that children should not be subjected to prophylactic interventions "in their best interests" or for public health reasons when there exist effective and conservative alternative interventions, such as behavioural modification, that individuals could employ as competent adolescents or adults to avoid adverse health outcomes. Applying these criteria, we consider the specific examples of prophylactic mastectomy, immunisations, cosmetic ear surgery, and circumcision.  (+info)

Childrens rights on the global stage: 1990-99. The Declaration of the Rights of the Child had been adopted in 1959 by the UN General Assembly. After a period of limited progress in formally articulating child rights, the International Year of the Child, held in 1979 on the 20th anniversary of the Declaration, succeeded in rekindling interest. NGOs working on behalf of children argued that child rights should be enshrined in law, and helped establish an intergovernmental group to begin drafting a convention to replace the 1959 Declaration.. During the 1980s, UNICEF had been involved with analysis and policy responses for what were then called children in especially difficult circumstances - children living or working on the streets, those affected by armed conflict, suffering from exploitation or with disabilities. Recognizing the convergence among this work, the child survival and development revolution, and the movement for child rights, UNICEF threw its weight behind the work on a new ...

By turns a distiller, a lawyer, and an extremely successful business entrepreneur, Zanvyl Krieger made his name best known as an extraordinary philanthropist. His greatest single gift was a $50 million challenge grant, made in 1992, to the School of Arts and Sciences of the Johns Hopkins University. The gift is one of the largest ever directed exclusively to a U.S. school or college of arts and sciences, the division of a university that focuses on the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences.

I got a call from Johns Hopkins yesterday, Friday, the Medical Director went over his records and said if Chase were his child he would take him to the Kennedy Krieger Institute which is on the same campus, and seems to be the "Brain center" there.

The 1989 United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UN Convention)1 provides children with the right of the highest attainable standard of health (article 24). All countries in the world except the United States have now ratified this convention, which has implications for national health policy and priorities regarding health care for every child. The convention places an obligation on all public and private health institutions to ensure that the best interest of the child is assessed and taken as a primary consideration in all actions affecting children. The important point emphasized by the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child is that, based on the UN Convention, each child has a right to be assessed individually before a decision is made regarding proper treatment. As a consequence, the UN Convention may change practice in handling of newborns in a wider perspective.. In neonatology, decisions to initiate or forego intensive care for certain infants such as the ...
Millions of children have no access to education, work long hours under hazardous conditions and are forced to serve as soldiers in armed conflict. They suffer targeted attacks on their schools and teachers or languish in institutions or detention centers, where they endure inhumane conditions and assaults on their dignity. Young and immature, they are often easily exploited.
What should be expected of religious people?. What could such people do that they have not already tried? Are religious people miracle workers? For what is needed is transformation. And for this we must upset and upturn our understanding of what is acceptable in our world. Not just as it affects children, but for everyone.. I hope to focus my enquiry on a new indicator of worth rather than on the specifics of the various rights. My hypothesis is that it is not only the little world of the child s immediate survival, health and safety that has to be changed; it is the world s overall character that cries out to be rescued and transformed.. The present condition and future prospects for children depend on more than the Convention that has been written for them. Much else must change. Otherwise we help our children through their childhood years but leave them a damaged world to live in, with a poisoned manifesto on how to run it.. What is gained for either the world or its people --- save for ...

The article focuses on the early and problem-solving phases of the childs illness trajectory and on how child allergies are constructed and organized by the parents in a moral everyday context. The parents narratives were reconstructed as narratives, describing the pathways parents take before they decide to seek professional medical aid as well as showing how they construct themselves as responsible parents. Before consulting health professionals the parents have often tried a range of different ways to define, control and manage their childrens various problems. Allergy problems were interpreted and responded to differently, depending on the way they emerged in everyday life. Acute reactions quickly led to an illness definition and a diagnosis. Gradual and diffuse problems were not so easily defined. They were at first interpreted and responded to as normal infant problems, but, through the parents readiness and various situational and temporal clues, they were organized as symptoms of ...

Professor James Donaldson, who has been studying urban grime for more than a decade, recently presented new research detailing how urban grime releases smog-forming nitrogen oxide compounds when exposed to sunlight. This paper, co-authored with PhD student Alyson Baergen, has overturned the previously held notion that such compounds remain "trapped" in the grime. The research involved field studies in Toronto and Leipzig, Germany, and helps to explain why nitrous oxide (HONO) compounds have been recently reported in urban environments at higher levels than can be explained by current models. It has also shown, notes Donaldson, "that we do not understand urban air pollution as well as we had thought." His research team is continuing to explore the chemistry occurring with sunlight and grime and are planning a similar study in Shanghai with colleagues at Fudan University, and are also undertaking a long-term study in Toronto. The story has captured the attention of international media and an ...

Whatever version you choose of Peter Grimes, Brittens operatic masterpiece, you are assured of a dedicated, convincingly executed performance, different as each may be. Listening to comparison upon comparison, I found myself amazed again and again at the composers since-unsurpassed genius for structure, content, timing and emotional sympathy. After almost 60 years, the work re-mains the greatest opera of the mid-20th century, probably of the whole century, Elektra and Butterfly perhaps excepted.

Dr Grimes relates a story of a beautiful 40 -year- old patient whose face caused a toddler to cry. "In response to that incident," the patient said, "I dont go out. I dont date anymore, I have isolated myself, and I feel ugly.". Grimes explains that vitiglio patients require a very long initial consolation. She says, "We take a very detailed history-looking at family history, a time of disease onset, disease progression, associated symptoms, associated autoimmune illnesses, and medications to tease out any other causative factors that may be contributing to pigment loss.". Besides uncovering the physical causes, Dr. Grimes also stresses addressing the psychological impact of the condition. She steers aways from direct, overly probing questions, saying, "I go about it in a subdued, roundabout way -trying to let them talk about it first. I want them to be comfortable." Instead of asking about the impact of the disease on the patients quality, she prefers to inquire about changes in daily ...
A lot of people figure out who and what theyre going to be and do by the time theyve finished college. Fewer have it figured out by the time theyve graduated high school. And then theres Dr. Jacqueline Taylor. Who knew at the age of just 3. "From the time I was three years old," she says, "I knew I wanted to be in education. I will tell you that practically from the time I could talk, I talked about school, and throughout my whole early life, I kept saying that I would be in education." And how. A native of northern Lower Michigan, Dr. Taylor graduated from what then was Fife Lake High School, learning early the lessons of hard work by picking cherries, harvesting potatoes and topping onions. Her father worked in the automotive industry, while her mother served, among other things, as a cook for Kingsley Public Schools for the better part of two decades. She left Grand Traverse County at 18 and moved to Lansing, marrying and raising two sons and then enrolling in college as "a late starter." ...

The game continues. Talk up the economy, talk down printing and pray. If the market heads into the Fed meeting at current levels it runs the risk of being disappointed. If this is combined with continued economic weakness then the real set up happens between the June meeting and the August one. It is in that interim period that the market could throw another one of its hissy fits and beg for more liquidity. Money supply growth is extremely sluggish right now all over the world. The velocity never happened and the global economy is rolling over. The Fed is already behind the curve and so when they are forced to act the infusion will have to be huge just to stem the momentum.

BABY JESSICA IS VERY MUCH ALIVE, but when Jan and Robby DeBoer watched her carried out of their lives last summer, they endured a death, Death demands mourning. So on Aug. 4, two days after the transfer, 200 of the DeBoers supporters crowded into the Friends Meeting House in Ann Arbor, Mich., for a two-hour Time of Remembering. It was a way of being together and acknowledging what had happened and wishing jessi well, says Annie Rose, president of the Ann Arbor-based DeBoer Committee for Childrens Rights. The DeBoers have since stopped talking to the press, but friends say the events of last summer still dominate the couples life. They see a therapist, they send Christmas and birthday presents to the child, and they cling to the hope they will see her someday. They have no illusions about getting her back. The DeBoers fought a long legal battle to keep Dan and Cara Schmidt from reclaiming the child they conceived, but once she was gone they stopped filing court appeals. They didnt want to

The only beverages we have to offer are water and also milk. I have not gotten any kind of juice considering that, besides special celebrations.

Such instances were only heard when adults got into altercations, but it is unfortunate that even children as young as 3 months are not being spared now. I also feel that such decisions to be made on childrens rights must be done by independent bodies which should be created by the state and they should have a say in departmental functioning on matters like how to allocate funds and use for cases in distress similar to that of Bitta. This way there will be transparency in dealing with request that come for financial aid and they can get help in time too." ...

Catherines confidence has been dented after getting something wrong in class. Subsequent teasing has made her sad.

As I listened to the message, I was convicted about my growing fear about the future. Infertility has revealed in my heart an underlying sinful anxiety. Although I think of myself as a pretty optimistic person in general, I have lately felt stuck in a state of expecting the worst. I believe that God is good, but I have managed to twist that belief into a perverse kind of foreboding. It goes something like this in my mind: "God works all things for good, right? Infertility has been really hard, but it must be good somehow. God knows the future, and it is obviously not best for us to have a child right now if he is sovereignly causing us to wait." All okay, so far, huh? But where I get into trouble is when I start playing the mental game of imagining the reasons why were not supposed to have children. Trying to second guess Gods reasoning, I start to wonder if maybe Aaron or I is soon going to die or be paralyzed or something else that would make it really difficult to care for children, or if ...
I didnt think about my fertility that much for the first two years of cancer treatment. But now, on the cusp of 30, I think about it all the time. More and more I find myself thinking about babies and how/if/when we can start a family. While I am in no rush to have a child right at this moment (and frankly neither is Ross!), its scary to not know if its even possible...especially when everyone in the world (or at least on Facebook!) is pregnant. And getting older is only a reminder that I dont have forever. The ovarian tissue procedure is still very new and nothing is guaranteed, so my ovarian tissue may or may not result in a live birth, and in fact I dont even know if I can carry a baby myself, so there are a lot of variables here. But regardless, Im glad I did it because no matter what happens, it gave me a little spark of hope ...

Instead we get this unrealistic emotionality about how important the ritualistic germ injection sport is to medical science, these genetics ASD-holes stabbing our sick children right in front of our faces, the real yet unspoken threat that if vaccine profits drop somebody is going to start seeding innocent people with germ warfare biology, and two completely irrelevant vaccine industry mouthpiece stooges controlling the entire apparent causation issue ...
I suppose the first thing I need to explain to you is just what it means to be a Sasha doll before I go much farther. Sasha dolls are those designed by the Swiss artist, Sasha Morgenthaler. She made and sold dolls beginning in the 1940s until she passed away in 1975. We Sasha dolls are exceptional in being proportioned like a real child right down to the facial and body asymmetry found in real people. Because of this, we can portray a wide variety of moods with slight adjustments to the tilt of our head. We intentionally have a nuetral expression so we can be sympathetic to all moods of the beholder. The studio made dolls are exceptionally beautiful and are made in the likeness of children from around the world. In the 1960s, Sasha Morgenthalers dream of having her dolls mass produced, so we could be available and affordable for common children was realized. First the Gotz doll company in Germany and then the Frido (later Trendon) company in England began production. Trendon continued producing ...

To support this process, UNICEF IRC is undertaking a study exploring the visibility of childrens rights in donor countries development assistance, both at donor headquarters and at the country programme level. This research reviews the action of donor agencies in six countries (Austria, Belgium, Canada, Germany, Sweden and the United Kingdom) and assists the European Union to assess and compare their approach. The donor level perspective is complemented by five case studies reflecting the perspective on countries which receive aid (Ethiopia, Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Nicaragua and Vietnam). The research discusses various ways in which the visibility of child rights can be conceptualized, from which a seven-fold visibility framework is developed. The framework is then adopted to discuss - with a comparative approach - the experience of the different donor countries ...

ENGLISH ABSTRACT: With the arrival of the Internet, the availability of pornography, and especially child pornography, has increased tremendously. This rapidly developing technological wonderworld has brought the dark syndicate of sexual exploitation of children to the living room of each home equipped with a computer. In South Africa the right of the child to not be sexually exploited or abused is enshrined in section 28 of the Constitution, 108 of 1996, as well as in several international documents. This thesis analyses the legislative framework in this regard and comes to the conclusion that South African legislation concerned shows much room for improvement. Legislation concerning sexual offences against children makes use of archaic terms that are outdated in the present context. It is also vague, inconsistent and provides insufficient protection to children in this regard. The sexual exploitation of children does not, despite promises made by the South African government in ratifying ...
New York) - Afghan President Hamid Karzai should take urgent action to fight child marriage and domestic violence or risk further harm to development and public health in Afghanistan, Human Rights Watch said today in a letter to the president.. In the 15-page briefing paper, "Afghanistan: Ending Child Marriage and Domestic Violence," Human Rights Watch highlights the health and economic consequences of marriage under age 18 and violence against women and girls. Karzai, who is barred by term limits from running in the April 2014 presidential election, should make full enforcement of the 2009 Law on the Elimination of Violence Against Women (the EVAW Law) a priority for his last year in office.. "President Karzais signing of the violence against women law in 2009 ushered in vital protections against child marriage and domestic violence," said Liesl Gerntholtz, womens rights director at Human Rights Watch. "By ensuring the law is enforced, Karzai would leave a lasting legacy of support for the ...
The purpose of this study was to investigate potential risk factors for failed sentinel lymph node identification in breast cancer surgery. Patient characteristics, tumour characteristics, surgeon experience and detection success/failure were registered at 748 sentinel lymph node biopsy procedures at our inpatient clinic. Data were analysed with backward stepwise multiple logistic regression with a cut-off point of p,0.05. We found that increased age, increased BMI, medial tumour location and less surgeon experience independently were associated with a lower sentinel lymph node detection rate. Tumour size, palpability and biopsy method were not significantly associated with the sentinel lymph node detection rate. In conclusion, it is possible to identify patients with a higher risk of sentinel lymph node identification failure and we recommend that these patients are operated by experienced surgeons in order to avoid accumulation of independent risk factors in individual cases. ...
In 2008-09, the rate of substantiated child protection notifications per 1,000 children aged 0-16 years was 38 for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children-close to 8 times the rate for non-Indigenous children (5 per 1,000). This was an increase from 32 per 1,000 in 2006-07. Rates of children who were the subject of substantiations of notifications vary across juris dictions, reflecting different legislation and practices and rates also vary from year to year within jurisdictions. While comparisons between jurisdictions should be made with care, rates of Indigenous children who were the subject of substantiations were higher than for non-Indigenous children within each jurisdiction (AIHW 2010b). Compared with other children, the reason for substantiated child protection notification for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children is more likely to be for neglect rather than sexual or physical abuse ...

New research in the USA shows that Jehovahs Witnesses who refuse blood transfusions recover from heart surgery faster and with fewer complications than those who have transfusions.. Patients who are Jehovahs Witnesses had better survival rates, shorter hospital stays, fewer additional operations for bleeding and spent fewer days in the intensive care unit than those who received blood trans-fusions during surgery, a study in the Archives of Internal Medicine shows.. Jehovahs Witnesses undergo extensive blood conservation before surgery, including red blood-cell boosting erythropoietin drugs, iron and B-complex vitamins to guard against anaemia. The practice offered a "unique natural experiment" for scientists to study the short and long-term effects of the blood management strategy and may point to ways to reduce need for transfusions, researchers said.. The study included 322 Jehovahs Witness patients and 87,453 other patients who underwent heart surgery at the Cleveland Clinic from 1983 to ...
