International travel and vaccinations. (1/1608)

With the increase in global travel, no disease is beyond the reach of any population. Traveling patients should be advised to follow food and water precautions and encouraged to receive the recommended immunizations. Travel medicine plays a vital role not only in limiting the morbidity of travel-related illnesses but also in limiting the spread of diseases. This article addresses the common issues related to travel, reviews the care of the immunocompromised traveler, and updates the available vaccinations and prophylactic regimens available to limit sickness abroad.  (+info)

Eradication: lessons from the past. (2/1608)

The declaration in 1980 that smallpox had been eradicated reawakened interest in disease eradication as a public health strategy. The smallpox programme's success derived, in part, from lessons learned from the preceding costly failure of the malaria eradication campaign. In turn, the smallpox programme offered important lessons with respect to other prospective disease control programmes, and these have been effectively applied in the two current global eradication initiatives, those against poliomyelitis and dracunculiasis. Taking this theme a step further, there are those who would now focus on the development of an inventory of diseases which might, one by one, be targeted either for eradication or elimination. This approach, while interesting, fails to recognize many of the important lessons learned and their broad implications for contemporary disease control programmes worldwide.  (+info)

The principles of disease elimination and eradication. (3/1608)

The Dahlem Workshop discussed the hierarchy of possible public health interventions in dealing with infectious diseases, which were defined as control, elimination of disease, elimination of infections, eradication, and extinction. The indicators of eradicability were the availability of effective interventions and practical diagnostic tools and the essential need for humans in the life-cycle of the agent. Since health resources are limited, decisions have to be made as to whether their use for an elimination or eradication programme is preferable to their use elsewhere. The costs and benefits of global eradication programmes concern direct effects on morbidity and mortality and consequent effects on the health care system. The success of any disease eradication initiative depends strongly on the level of societal and political commitment, with a key role for the World Health Assembly. Eradication and ongoing programmes constitute potentially complementary approaches to public health. Elimination and eradication are the ultimate goals of public health, evolving naturally from disease control. The basic question is whether these goals are to be achieved in the present or some future generation.  (+info)

Disease eradication and health systems development. (4/1608)

This article provides a framework for the design of future eradication programmes so that the greatest benefit accrues to health systems development from the implementation of such programmes. The framework focuses on weak and fragile health systems and assumes that eradication leads to the cessation of the intervention required to eradicate the disease. Five major components of health systems are identified and key elements which are of particular relevance to eradication initiatives are defined. The dearth of documentation which can provide "lessons learned" in this area is illustrated with a brief review of the literature. Opportunities and threats, which can be addressed during the design of eradication programmes, are described and a number of recommendations are outlined. It is emphasized that this framework pertains to eradication programmes but may be useful in attempts to coordinate vertical and horizontal disease control activities for maximum mutual benefits.  (+info)

Health seeking behaviour and the control of sexually transmitted disease. (5/1608)

What people do when they have symptoms or suspicion of a sexually transmitted disease (STD) has major implications for transmission and, consequently, for disease control. Delays in seeking and obtaining diagnosis and treatment can allow for continued transmission and the greater probability of adverse sequelae. An understanding of health seeking behaviour is therefore important if STD control programmes are to be effective. However, taboos and stigma related to sex and STD in most cultures mean that gaining a true picture is difficult and requires considerable cultural sensitivity. At the moment relatively little is known about who people turn to for advice, or about how symptoms are perceived, recognized or related to decisions to seek help. It is argued that such knowledge would assist programme planners in the development of more accessible and effective services, that studies of health seeking behaviour need to include a combination of qualitative and quantitative methods, and that studies should include data collection about people who do not present to health care facilities as well as those who do. A pilot protocol for studying STD-related health seeking behaviour in developing countries is briefly presented.  (+info)

Health policy development in wartime: establishing the Baito health system in Tigray, Ethiopia. (6/1608)

This paper documents health experiences and the public health activities of the Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF). The paper provides background data about Tigray and the emergence of its struggle for a democratic Ethiopia. The origins of the armed struggle are described, as well as the impact of the conflict on local health systems and health status. The health-related activities and public health strategies of the TPLF are described and critiqued in some detail, particular attention is focused on the development of the baito system, the emergent local government structures kindled by the TPLF as a means of promoting local democracy, accountability, and social and economic development. Important issues arise from this brief case-study, such as how emerging health systems operating in wartime can ensure that not only are basic curative services maintained, but preventive and public health services are developed. Documenting the experiences of Tigray helps identify constraints and possibilities for assisting health systems to adapt and cope with ongoing conflict, and raises possibilities that in their aftermath they leave something which can be built upon and further developed. It appears that promoting effective local government may be an important means of promoting primary health care.  (+info)

The progress of the Polio Eradication Initiative: what prospects for eradicating measles? (7/1608)

Although various attempts have been made to eradicate infectious diseases, only smallpox has been eradicated to date. Polio is targeted for eradication in 2000 and already planning has begun for the eradication of measles. However, before we commit to a measles eradication effort, we must examine the lessons to be learned from polio eradication. Of particular importance is the debate over whether resources should be invested in 'horizontal' or 'vertical' programmes. The outcome of these debates will have a very deep and lasting impact on global health development in years to come. Collaboration between targeted programmes and the primary health care sector through polio and measles eradication efforts will help bring about the necessary balance between goal-oriented programmes, which are subject to quality control and can be evaluated by measurable outcomes, and broader efforts to build up sustainable health infrastructure.  (+info)

Commentary: Emerging and other communicable diseases. (8/1608)

There is an increasing need for integrated, sustainable; and cost-effective approaches to the management of infectious diseases. For example, an emerging disease in one country may already be endemic in another country but nearing elimination in a third. A coordinated approach by WHO towards infectious diseases is therefore needed that will facilitate more effective support of on-going efforts for the prevention and control of endemic diseases, intensify efforts against those diseases targeted for eradication and elimination, and result in better preparedness and response to new and re-emerging diseases. In order to meet these challenges, WHO has created a new Programme on Communicable Diseases (CDS), which will replace the former Division of Emerging and other Communicable Diseases (EMC). The new Programme will better integrate surveillance, prevention, control, and research over the whole spectrum of communicable diseases. CDS will function as focal point for global data and information exchange on infectious diseases, and inter alia, will reinforce laboratory-based surveillance of bacterial, viral, and zoonotic diseases to ensure early detection of threats to international public health. Changes in susceptibility to infectious disease, increased opportunities for infection, and the ability of microbes to adapt rapidly will continue to challenge WHO to improve prevention and control of infectious diseases in the future by establishing strong partnerships with both the private and public sectors.  (+info)

At the Kunming and Vientiane GMS Summits, communicable diseases control (CDC) was identified as a priority for regional collaboration in view of emerging infectious diseases and the development of economic corridors.
The purpose of Communicable Disease Control is to monitor infectious or contagious diseases in the county and to prevent the spread of disease to other people.
Introduction A communicable disease such as tuberculosis is an illness or an infection that can transmit from one individual to another. They are the diseases that you can acquire from other people or objects. Terms such as infectious and or contagious are used when referring to communicable diseases. In a brief description a communicable disease refers to as a transmissible infection through direct contact with an infected person and or with their discharges or it could be indirect (Heymann, 2004). Tuberculosis also referred to as the TB is an infectious disease caused by a bacterium called mycobacterium tuberculosis. The infection attacks the lungs and it may affect other parts of the body such as intestines. The disease is airborne. This is to say that it is spread from one individual to another through droplets found in the air. If an infected person speaks, sneezes, spits and or coughs, they expel droplets that contain the bacteria into the air. If another individual inhales the air with ...
Control of communicable disease can only occur through collaboration. ACDC serves as the lead unit for surveillance and investigation of certain suspected and confirmed communicable (CD) cases and disease syndromes. ACDC examines the population distribution of disease, specifically in relation to seasonality, geographic occurrence and demographic factors. ACDC also sets policy and provides guidance and assistance to field staff who handle the bulk of case investigations. This field staff includes area health officers, public health nurses, registrars, and investigators based in 24 districts and eight service planning areas (SPAs) throughout Los Angeles County ...

King County health officials announced Thursday that seven more people -- including six children -- have likely been infected with swine flu, bringing the number of probable cases in the state to 13 and prompting the closure of more schools. Theres a student at each school that the public health department has stated could potentially have swine flu, Seattle Public Schools spokesman David Tucker said. Bringing children to public libraries, community centers or other public facilities defeats the purpose of closing schools, Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels said. The key thing to understand here is we shouldnt have an undue sense of alarm, said Dr. Jeff Duchin, chief of Public Healths communicable disease control program. Because what were seeing now is not more severe than what we go through every winter. [...] Fleming said officials need to be cautious, hence the reason for school closures. Because the virus is new, he said people are not expected to have a natural immunity to it. Snohomish

Our study will use longitudinal local health department (LHD) expenditure data for categories of service expenditures (i.e. Maternal/Child Health, Environmental Health, Communicable Disease Control) in 305 LHDs from four states over six years (2005-2010). The current unfortunate economic crisis provides a unique natural experiment to examine relationships between changes in LHD expenditures for specific LHD services and changes in population health behaviors and proximal health outcomes on the county level. Unique and critical partnerships with Public Health Practice-based Research Networks (PBRNs) and the University of Washingtons Center for Studies in Demography and Ecology (CSDE) will underlie the promising and innovative geospatial and statistical approach we will use to examine a poorly understood area of Public Health Systems and Services Research (PHSSR).

Our policy is to deal with it case by case, Moore said, adding that cleaning products used by custodians are effective sterilizers. County health experts say classrooms and schools do not need to shut down if a case is found. This new media frenzy is way out of proportion, said Dr. Laurene Mascola, chief of the Acute Communicable Disease Control Unit for Los Angeles County. This is overkill, she said. You are not going to get it by sitting in a chair or walking into a classroom. Jack OConnell, state superintendent of public instruction, and epidemiologist Dr. Gil Chavez of the state health department met this week to discuss the recent incidents of MRSA. We feel it is important to provide information, to dispel fears, answer questions and, most importantly, let students, parents and school personnel know that there are simple precautions they can take to prevent an outbreak of MRSA, OConnell said. Because of the real potential for an MRSA outbreak in schools, especially among ...
Dr Bharat Pankhania, Senior Clinical Lecturer at Exeter Medical School and an expert in communicable disease control, debunks some of the most common myths surrounding the virus outbreak, also known as Covid-19.
Whole genome sequencing (WGS) plays an increasing role in communicable disease control through high-resolution outbreak tracing, laboratory surveillance and diagnostics. However, WGS has traditionally relied on microbial culture in order to obtain pathogen specific DNA for sequencing. This has severely limited the application of whole genome sequencing on pathogens with fastidious culturing requirements. In addition, the widespread adoption of culture-independent diagnostic tests has reduced availability of cultured isolates for confirmatory testing and surveillance. These recent developments have created demand for the implementation of techniques enabling direct sequencing of microbial genomes in clinical samples without having to culture an isolate. However, sequencing of specific organisms from clinical samples can be affected by high levels of contaminating DNA from the host and other commensal microorganisms. Several methods have been introduced for selective lysis of host cells and/or separate

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Small but unusual outbreaks of tuberculosis, measles and an extremely rare polio-like disease in several regions across California have set off concerns about the risks of exposure. All the infectious disease reports are actively being investigated, and California health officials say it is sheer coincidence that they arose at the same time.. California Department of Public Healths chief of the communicable disease control division, James Watt, assessed each of the diseases and offered his tips about how to stay healthy:. • MEASLES: Even as the number of flu-related fatalities is falling in the state, public health officials warn that measles cases are on the rise.. The virus, which is widespread outside the United States, spreads through the air and results in symptoms including a fever, cough and runny nose. Watt said the best way to prevent infection is to get vaccinated.. People may not realize but measles is quite a common and serious disease that can cause serious ...
A Public Health Unit is an official health agency established by a group of urban and rural municipalities to provide a more efficient community health program, carried out by full-time, specially qualified staff.. There are 36 public health units in Ontario. Health units administer health promotion and disease prevention programs to inform the public about healthy life-styles, communicable disease control including education in STDs/AIDS, immunization, food premises inspection, healthy growth and development including parenting education, health education for all age groups and selected screening services.. Each health unit is governed by a board of health, which is an autonomous corporation under the Health Protection and Promotion Act, and is administered by the medical officer of health who reports to the local board of health. The board is largely made up of elected representatives from the local municipal councils. The ministry cost-shares the expenses with the municipalities. (Ministry of ...
Current routine surveillance schemes for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in the United Kingdom (UK) are not designed for outbreak identification. Recognising STI outbreaks, therefore, depends almost entirely on the alertness of health professionals. The objective of this study was to explore health professionals knowledge of, and attitudes towards, identification and investigation of STI outbreaks in Wales. We conducted a cross-sectional survey in Wales in June 2005, and sent a questionnaire to consultants of genitourinary medicine (GUM, n = 11), a consultant microbiologist from each laboratory (n = 14), all consultants in communicable disease control (n = 5), and to epidemiologists of the National Public Health Service (n = 4). 26 (76%) of 34 survey recipients responded. Of these, 17 (65%) ranked the investigation of STI outbreaks as important or very important, and 19 (73%) perceived participation in the investigation of an STI outbreak as part of their responsibility. Only six (25%)
Public health experts are asking parents to protect their children with two doses of MMR vaccine after three further suspected cases of measles were reported bringing the total number of cases in North East Manchester and Oldham to 10.. Six of the cases are in North East Manchester and four are in Oldham. The patients range in age from one to 17 years. Three needed treatment in hospital but have now recovered sufficiently to return home.. Dr. Rosemary McCann, Consultant in Communicable Disease Control with the Health Protection Agency, said: Its of concern that we have three more suspected cases. Measles can be very serious with a potential for severe side effects. In rare cases it can kill. It should never be dismissed as a simple childhood illness and the only sure way for parents to protect their children from it is by giving them two doses of MMR vaccine.. Ideally children should be vaccinated at the age of 13 months and given a booster before starting school, but our message to children ...
This Operational Directive describes the course of action to be undertaken by staff of Public Health Units (PHU) and/or the OzFoodNet Unit within the Communicable Disease Control Directorate for the public health management of sporadic cases of notifiable enteric infections.

A Consultant in Communicable Disease Control interviews a young man as part of a TB contact tracing intervention in central London, UK.
The recipient of the handshake then may touch his eyes or nose, and at that point, the virus is transferred to tissue that may become infected. Dr. Oppenheimer, a specialist in diagnosing and treating infectious diseases in Castro Valley, cautioned that using a handkerchief or tissues does not prevent getting the cold virus on your hands because the virus is so small it gets through these barriers. Since colds are spread by hand contact, unless you work in an isolation booth, how do you keep bad germs at bay? Any liquid soap is satisfactory because most of the effect of washing comes from the mechanical action of rubbing hands together. Dr. Jon Rosenberg, medical epidemiologist with the state Department of Health Services division of communicable disease control in Berkeley, added this advice regarding hand washing: Organisms can be present on the faucet if its wet, because germs will multiply in a moist environment - around a sink in the bathroom or kitchen. * Exercise to keep up your

A communicable disease is an illness that can be contracted through contact with a human or animal, their discharges, or contaminated items carrying an infectious agent. An infectious agent is a disease causing organism, such as a bacteria, virus or parasite. Once a person has contracted a communicable disease they can then pass it on to others.. Environmental Health Officers at Northern Health routinely monitor illnesses that are transmitted from person to person or through food, water, animals, and insects. Many of these illnesses may be communicable, and thus be carried and transmitted by an infected person. Therefore, the prevention of these illnesses from being spread in a family or community is important because some of the illnesses can lead to serious illness and even death.. The most effective methods for preventing the spread of communicable disease are frequent handwashing and staying home when you are sick.. If you suspect you have a communicable disease, please seek medical ...

Thursday, February 14, 2013. The world has an historic opportunity to contain and end three of humanitys deadliest scourges by focusing on their hot zones, according to Mark Dybul, the newly appointed director of the Geneva-based Global Fund to Fight HIV, Tuberculosis, and Malaria.. We have this unique moment in history where the science and implementation advances of the last 10 years are at a point where, if we just invest a little more and stick with it, we can contain the epidemics and have the next generation be free of HIV, tuberculosis, and malaria, Dybul told me. Dybul said that a better understanding of the epidemiology of the diseases makes it clear there arent what have been called generalized epidemics, even in hard-hit countries, but there are what he called micro-epidemics.. ...

Also known as whooping cough, pertussis is a highly contagious disease. It is also the most common vaccine-preventable disease in the U.S. Pertussis can cause serious and sometimes life-threatening complications in infants and young children, especially those who are not fully vaccinated. Many infants who get pertussis catch it from their parents or older brothers and sisters - who might not even know they have the disease. Ninety-percent (90%) of pertussis-associated deaths have been among babies less than 1 year old. In infants younger than 1 year of age who get pertussis, about half are hospitalized ...
