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)

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)

Janusz Korczak, whose original name was Henryk Goldszmit, is seen as the father of the very idea that children also have rights - human rights. His thinking had a profound impact on the drafting of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and continue to influence the child-friendly programmes of the Council of Europe.Korczak´s message was about respect for children, respect for their inherent value as human beings but also for their capacity and competence. Though continuously practicing as a medical doctor and assisting in orphanages, he was also a writer. His essay The Childs Right to Respect in which he analyses the role of adults and the place of children in society is published in this volume.Korczaks vision about childrens rights is still relevant. What can we learn from his ideas when tackling todays problems? Five childrens rights activists analysed current problems in the spirit of Korczak.This book conveys the deeper meaning and importance of the rights of children. Janusz

The timeline of childrens rights in the United Kingdom includes a variety of events that are both political and grassroots in nature. The UK government maintains a position that the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) is not legally enforceable and is hence aspirational only, although a 2003 ECHR ruling states that, The human rights of children and the standards to which all governments must aspire in realising these rights for all children are set out in the Convention on the Rights of the Child.[1] Eighteen years after ratification, the four Childrens Commissioners in the UK (including those for the three devolved administrations) have united in calling for adoption of the Convention into domestic legislation, making childrens rights recognised and legally binding.[2]. Opponents of childrens rights often raise the objection that rights must entail responsibilities.[3] The childrens rights movement asserts rather that children have rights which adults, states ...

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 ...

CALGARY-The Sheldon Kennedy Child Advocacy Centre is launching a month-long campaign aimed at promoting support for child abuse victims and the prevention of sexual and physical abuse.. The announcement came Monday as the centre marked its five-year anniversary and October as Child Abuse Prevention Month in conjunction with the provincial government.. (Its) a bittersweet moment, said the centres CEO Sara Austin. In our first five years, we served more than 7,500 children and youth. And we see, on average, 130 new cases of child abuse every single month.. She said the campaign uses a broad definition of child abuse that encompasses all forms - physical, sexual, emotional, verbal, and neglect.. But the centres mandate, she said, is to support the prevention of all forms of sexual abuse of children, as well as the most severe forms of physical abuse or neglect.. Thats why the day is bittersweet - the 7,500-plus children served by the centre represent victims of sexual abuse and the most ...

It is the philosophy of the Child Advocacy Center, that no one agency or discipline can address the problem of child abuse and that each agency has its own body of knowledge, mandate, procedure and level of substantiation. We promote a team approach to the investigation and prosecution of child abuse cases and collaboration in addressing the needs of children and families served by the Child Advocacy Center. The Child Advocacy Center schedules monthly MDT case review meetings in order to facilitate a process in which professionals are able to work together more effectively and efficiently to address incidents of child abuse.. ...

Undercover reporters from OKeefes Project Veritas organization visited Grimes campaign offices and Democratic-party headquarters in Kentucky, posing as anti-coal environmentalists.

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 ...

There is a lot of talk right now around the rushed legislation proposed by Peter Mandelson, and being consulted on by BIS, that would allow households suspected of illegally downloading copyright material through peer-to-peer filesharing or other methods to have their internet access cut off.. The way this proposal suggests leapfrogging legal processes of proof before action is taken against suspected offenders was a theme coming up in more than one of the MSc research proposal shared in my induction at the Oxford Internet Institute this afternoon - but one dimension which deserves added attention is the impact of the proposed legislation on the rights of children young people.. Although the UK Government has signed up to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, we still lack a systematic review of the way legislation impacts Childrens Rights - so the key voice pointing out the fundamental problems in Mandelsons proposal is coming from ARCH - Action on the Rights of the Child..

Photo Copyright Erica McCaulley for The Equalizer Ali Krieger is back in camp with the United States womens national team for the first time since summer 2017. U.S. coach Jill Ellis has called up the defender for the upcoming camp ahead of friendly matches against Australia and Belgium on April 4 and 7, respectively.. Ellis is looking at Krieger - who last played in a match for the U.S. in April 2017 - as a potential option at right back. Krieger was the starting right back for the U.S. as the team won the 2015 World Cup. Kelley OHara, the incumbent starter in that position, will miss the upcoming matches due to ongoing issues with her ankle. She had surgery on her right ankle in October and returned in time for the start of the year.. I spoke with Ali and shes excited to come into camp and help this team in any way she can, Ellis said in a release. Opportunities, however they transpire, are exactly that, and Ali has been a great pro and will no doubt lean on her experience and strengths ...
JTA) - When Neil Krieger was a graduate student at Harvard University in the mid-1960s, he decided he had to do something about racism.. Not content to watch from the sidelines as others battled for civil rights, he joined the Boston branch of the Congress of Racial Equality and began visiting local businesses, imploring them to hire African-Americans.. They would go to a bank and see there were no black tellers, so they would meet with the head of the bank and tell him, You should find a black teller, said his daughter Hilary Krieger, an editor at NBC News. And they would find candidates who could do the job.. They werent trying to shame people or cause trouble, but to make a difference in the lives of the people, she added.. Krieger, who died on April 29 in Boston from complications of COVID-19 at 78, was born in Spring Valley, New York, in 1942 to parents who ran a series of restaurants. He spent his teen years living in the storied Hotel Bossert, also known as the Waldorf-Astoria of ...
Morris and Krieger (2013) have argued that male circumcision does not impact adversely on sexual sensation, satisfaction, and/or function. In the present paper, it is argued that such a view is untenable. By selectively citing Morris own non-peer-reviewed letters and opinion pieces purporting to show flaws in studies reporting evidence of negative effects of circumcision, and by failing adequately to account for replies to these letters by the authors of the original research (and others), Morris and Krieger give an incomplete and misleading account of the available literature. Consequently, Morris and Krieger reach an implausible conclusion that is inconsistent with what is known about the anatomy and functions of the penile foreskin, and the likely effects of its surgical removal.
The liability, it turns out, has been shifted to the federal government which requires children take these vaccines (and even prosecutes parents that dont). They anticipate a certain amount of damage which to them is acceptable ... and operates its lets-make-a-mockery-of-justice vaccine court. This puts the federal government in the position of denying any validity to legitimate claims that vaccines harm children, because to admit such a thing would cause a tidal wave of claims to come flooding into the vaccine court, resulting in potentially trillions of dollars in payouts to all the parents whose children have been harmed by vaccines ...
I have highlighted certain areas of the article: bold is what I disagree with, italics what I agree with, and underlining something I have a question about.. I completely agree with Dr Waterston about the need for the child to be the primary patient and not the parents. I also agree that information on confidentiality should be more readily available and easily accessible to children and young people (CYP); from my experiences I have found that this is not so and have often become confused about what the law says my rights are. From a political level I also agree that there should be a ban on smacking, and a close eye kept on health and travel aspects of life, as this greatly concerns CYP. I have found that many doctors or nurses dont know how to approach talking to YP-teenagers in particular-and I feel it should be an invaluable part of their training to look into things like this, as the author suggested.. However I did disagree on two points with the author. If a letter is sent out about ...

In the area of ​​social protection in NPEI 2016-2020 is foreseen the social services reform towards decentralization of social services and social care deinstitutionalization and creating electronic records of families benefiting from economic aid and disability scheme. So far in the direction of decentralization of social care services through the possibility of introducing alternative service (family -house, day centers, community service, etc.) more attempts are made by the private sector that often does not stretch as needed and it is not coordinated by the state. Local government, except for the municipality of Tirana, had no financial means to set up and fund themselves the social services or social care. The new administrative reform has just begun and it is not known yet how many will support the new budget, and whether municipalities will be able to generate funds that can be used in the field of social services and in the community care ...

Background: Prolonged surgical antimicrobial prophylaxis (SAP) to prevent surgical site infection (SSI) is generally discouraged after completion of surgery. However, little is known about the pattern of peri-operative antibiotic use in resource-limited settings. We aimed to describe its use at a typical government hospital in Uganda. Methods: A study was originally conducted in a rural Ugandan regional referral and teaching hospital in 2014 and 2015 to improve hand hygiene practice and measure its impact on health-care-associated infections including SSI (WardGel study). This is a secondary analysis of the data from the WardGel study to assess the frequency of peri-operative antibiotic use among surgical patients. Results: Of 3,627 patients enrolled into the original study, 960 (26.5%) underwent surgery at the hospital and 907 patients (94.5%) received antibiotic agents during hospitalization. Of these, 880 patients (97.0%, of 907 patients) received antibiotic agents on the day of surgery. A ...

The results show that health anxiety is associated with poorer adjustment. Patients who are highly health anxious appear to adjust less well to living with a stoma. The protective impact stoma self-efficacy has on adjustment, as demonstrated in previous studies, was replicated. In addition, the current study shows that the positive relationship between self-efficacy and adjustment is negatively impacted by health anxiety. A further finding of this study is that emergency and planned surgery patients do not differ on psychological variables including health anxiety, distress, self-efficacy and adjustment ...

The very sad part is that their complaining just comes to show what kind of parents they are: the lousy type.
