Role of schools in the transmission of measles in rural Senegal: implications for measles control in developing countries. (1/5036)

Patterns of measles transmission at school and at home were studied in 1995 in a rural area of Senegal with a high level of vaccination coverage. Among 209 case children with a median age of 8 years, there were no deaths, although the case fatality ratio has previously been 6-7% in this area. Forty percent of the case children had been vaccinated against measles; the proportion of vaccinated children was higher among secondary cases (47%) than among index cases (33%) (prevalence ratio = 1.36, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.04-1.76). Vaccinated index cases may have been less infectious than unvaccinated index cases, since they produced fewer clinical cases among exposed children (relative risk = 0.55, 95% CI 0.29-1.04). The secondary attack rate was lower in the schools than in the homes (relative risk = 0.31, 95% CI 0.20-0.49). The school outbreaks were protracted, with 4-5 generations of cases being seen in the two larger schools. Vaccine efficacy was found to be 57% (95% CI -23 to 85) in the schools and 74% (95% CI 62-82) in the residential compounds. Measles infection resulted in a mean of 3.8 days of absenteeism per case, though this did not appear to have an impact on the children's grades. Among the index cases, 56% of children were probably infected by neighbors in the community, and 7% were probably infected at health centers, 13% outside the community, and 24% in one of the three schools which had outbreaks during the epidemic. However, most of the school-related cases occurred at the beginning and therefore contributed to the general propagation of the epidemic. To prevent school outbreaks, it may be necessary to require vaccination prior to school entry and to revaccinate children in individual schools upon detection of cases of measles. Multidose measles vaccination schedules will be necessary to control measles in developing countries.  (+info)

The present state and future prospects of occupational health in Bangladesh. (3/5036)

Bangladesh is a relatively young and developing country. At the present time, like in most developing countries, a clear demarcation between occupational health care and general medical care is difficult to be recognized in Bangladesh. Occupational health is a fairly new field, as the country is undergoing industrialization and occupational health activities are operated by several ministries, such as Labour, Health, Industry and Transport. Legal foundations of the occupational health-care system based on British India and Pakistani era, were adopted and amended by the Government of Bangladesh after the liberation of the country in 1971. Most of the Labour laws have been rectified by the Government of Bangladesh according to the ILO Conventions. Reconsideration of the occupational health service system avoiding duplication for the 'occupational health' component in several ministries might be helpful to achieve the successful provision of an occupational health service in the developing Bangladesh.  (+info)

Epidemiology and prevention of group A streptococcal infections: acute respiratory tract infections, skin infections, and their sequelae at the close of the twentieth century. (4/5036)

Infections of the upper respiratory tract and skin due to group A Streptococcus are common, and the organism is highly transmissible. In industrialized countries and to some extent in developing countries, control efforts continue to emphasize that group A streptococcal pharyngitis should be properly diagnosed and appropriately treated. In developing countries and in indigenous populations where the burden of group A streptococcal diseases appears greatest, the epidemiology is less completely defined and may differ from that in industrialized countries. There is a need for accurately collected epidemiological data from developing countries, which may also further clarify the pathogenesis of group A streptococcal infections and their sequelae. While proper treatment of group A streptococcal pharyngitis continues to be essential in all populations, it may be appropriate in developing countries to consider additional strategies to reduce rates of pyoderma.  (+info)

Antibiotic strategies for developing countries: experience with acute respiratory tract infections in Pakistan. (5/5036)

The Pakistan program for control of acute respiratory tract infections (ARIs) adopted the standard ARI-case-management strategy of the World Health Organization and recommended co-trimoxazole for the management of nonsevere pneumonia. Reports in that country of high in vitro antimicrobial resistance of Streptococcus pneumoniae and Haemophilus influenzae to co-trimoxazole prompted the program to reevaluate its treatment policy. Two community-based studies during 1991-1993 showed in vivo efficacy of co-trimoxazole in 92% and 91% of children with nonsevere pneumonia. A third double-blind trial showed co-trimoxazole and oral amoxicillin to be equally effective in vivo in cases of nonsevere pneumonia, despite high in vitro resistance. Country-wide surveillance from 1991 to 1994 revealed 78.3%-79.9% in vitro resistance to co-trimoxazole among S. pneumoniae isolates and 59.5%-61.0% among H. influenzae isolates. Co-trimoxazole is still recommended by the Pakistan ARI control program. The fact that amoxicillin is three times more expensive and must be administered more frequently is a big impediment to recommending it as a first-line drug for nonsevere pneumonia.  (+info)

Burden of infection on growth failure. (6/5036)

The high prevalence of infections among children living in poor areas of developing countries impairs linear growth in these populations. Acute, invasive infections, which provoke a systemic response (e.g., dysentery and pneumonia), and chronic infections, which affect the host over a sustained period (e.g., gut helminth infections), have a substantial effect on linear growth. Such infections can diminish linear growth by affecting nutritional status. This occurs because infections may decrease food intake, impair nutrient absorption, cause direct nutrient losses, increase metabolic requirements or catabolic losses of nutrients and, possibly, impair transport of nutrients to target tissues. In addition, induction of the acute phase response and production of proinflammatory cytokines may directly affect the process of bone remodeling that is required for long bone growth. Infection of cells directly involved in bone remodeling (osteoclasts or osteoblasts) by specific viruses may also directly affect linear growth. Many interventions are possible to diminish the effect of infection on growth. Prevention of disease through sanitation, vector control, promotion of breast-feeding and vaccination is crucial. Appropriate treatment of infections (e.g., antibiotics for pneumonia) as well as supportive nutritional therapy (again including breast-feeding) during and after recovery, is also important. Targeted therapeutic interventions to decrease the prevalence of gut helminth infections may also be appropriate in areas in which such infections are widespread. Such interventions are of public health benefit not only because they reduce the incidence or severity of infections, but also because they decrease the long-term detrimental effect of malnutrition on populations.  (+info)

Role of intergenerational effects on linear growth. (7/5036)

Current knowledge on the role of intergenerational effects on linear growth is reviewed on the basis of a literature search and recent findings from an ongoing study in Guatemala. Fourteen studies were identified, most of which examined the intergenerational relationships in birth weight. Overall, for every 100 g increase in maternal birth weight, her child's birth weight increased by 10-20 g. The study samples were primarily from developed countries, and birth weight data were extracted from hospital records and/or birth registries. Among the few studies that examined associations between the adult heights of parents and their offspring, correlation coefficients of 0.42-0.5 were reported. None of the studies examined intergenerational relationships in birth length or linear growth patterns during early childhood, preadolescence and/or adolescence. Prospectively collected data from long-term studies being carried out in rural Guatemala provide the first evidence of intergenerational relationships in birth size in a developing country setting. Data were available for 215 mother-child pairs. Maternal birth size was a significant predictor (P < 0.05) of child's birth size after adjusting for gestational age and sex of the child and other potential confounders. Child's birth weight increased by 29 g/100 g increase in maternal birth weight which is nearly twice that reported in developed countries. Similarly, child's birth length increased by 0.2 cm for every 1 cm increase in mother's birth length. The effect of maternal birth weight remained significant even after adjusting for maternal adult size. More evidence from developing countries will help explain the underlying mechanisms and identify appropriate interventions to prevent growth retardation.  (+info)

Risk of Helicobacter pylori infection among long-term residents in developing countries. (8/5036)

The seroprevalence and incidence of Helicobacter pylori infection were determined among 312 North American missionaries who were serving in developing countries between 1967 and 1984. The majority (81%) resided in sub-Saharan Africa. When initially evaluated, the missionaries had a mean age of 40 years, 65% were female, and all were of white race/ethnicity. An ELISA showed that the initial prevalence of IgG antibody to H. pylori was 17%. After a mean of 7.4 years of service (1917 person-years of exposure), 37 (14%) of 259 initially seronegative subjects seroconverted to anti-H. pylori, giving an annual incidence of 1.9%. These data indicate a relatively higher risk of H. pylori infection among missionaries compared with an annual incidence of seroconversion of 0.3-1.0% in industrialized nations. Long-term residents in developing countries should be evaluated for H. pylori infection when gastrointestinal symptoms develop.  (+info)

During the Cold War, unaligned countries of the Third World[6] were seen as potential allies by both the First and Second World. Therefore, the United States and the Soviet Union went to great lengths to establish connections in these countries by offering economic and military support to gain strategically located alliances (e.g. the United States in Vietnam or the Soviet Union in Cuba).[6] By the end of the Cold War, many Third World countries had adopted capitalist or communist economic models and continued to receive support from the side they had chosen. Throughout the Cold War and beyond, the countries of the Third World have been the priority recipients of Western foreign aid and the focus of economic development through mainstream theories such as modernization theory and dependency theory.[6] By the end of the 1960s, the idea of the Third World came to represent countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America that were considered underdeveloped by the West based on a variety of ...

These findings, which were the results of review and analysis of all published studies of pediatric adherence to ART in low income countries, appear in the August 2008 issue of The Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal, and provide the first complete picture of ART adherence among individuals under age 18 in limited income countries, as defined by the World Bank.. While many have thought that people wont be able to take medicines as well as they need to due to limited resources in poor countries, our review of all studies on the topic strongly suggests that children in low income countries are able to maintain at least a comparable degree of ART adherence, if not better adherence, than children in high income countries, said Rachel Vreeman, M.D., M.S., first author of the study. Dr. Vreeman is assistant professor of pediatrics at IU School of Medicine and a Regenstrief Institute affiliated scientist. Healthcare systems need to carefully monitor how children with HIV take their medicines. This ...

Basel, September 22, 2017 - Novartis announced a new collaboration with The Max Foundation to support continued access to treatment at no cost for nearly 34,000 current patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), gastrointestinal tumors (GIST) and other rare cancers. The two organizations have been long-time collaborators in providing access to care for patients in lower-income countries through the Glivec International Patient Assistance Program (GIPAP), one of the most innovative patient assistance programs ever implemented on a global scale. The new collaboration, called CMLPath to Care(TM), is an evolution from GIPAP, a partnership that provided Glivec (imatinib)* at no cost to diagnosed patients in lower-income countries where there may not be access to reimbursement or funding mechanisms, and to those unable to pay for the medication. Under the new initiative, The Max Foundation, a global, patient-focused, non-governmental organization (NGO), will assume from Novartis the responsibility ...

Natural News) The City of Angels is looking a whole lot more like a Den of Demons these days, as the second-largest city in the United States descends into complete breakdown, according to Dr. Drew Pinsky, a longtime L.A. resident and radio personality who gave his take on the current crumbling state of the worlds biggest entertainment hub during a recent episode of The Ingraham Angle.. Rampant illegal immigration, homelessness, rodent infestation, and infectious disease are just a few of the many serious problems afflicting todays LA, according to reports. And in the eyes of Dr. Pinsky, the California mecca is now, in many ways, worse-off than many Third World countries because of it all.. We have a complete breakdown of the basic needs of civilization in Los Angeles right now, Dr. Pinsky stated frankly to Laura Ingraham during the segment.. We have the three prongs of airborne disease, tuberculosis is exploding, (and) rodent-borne. We are one of the only cities in the country that ...
The implementation of policies arising out of fraudulent fearmongering and biased studies on global warming is already devastating the third world, with a doubling in food prices causing mass starvation and death - a primary reason why the climategate crooks and their allies should be criminally investigated and hit with the strongest charges possible.. As Lord Monckton outlined in his recent Alex Jones Show appearance, climate change alarmism and implementation of global warming policies is a crime of the highest nature, because it is already having a genocidal impact in countries like Haiti, where the doubling of food prices is resulting in a substantial increase in starvation, poverty and death.. Poor people around the world, Are being killed in large numbers by starvation as a result of (climate change) policy, said Monckton, due to huge areas of agricultural land being turned over to the growth of biofuels..

I would like to comment on the August 4 piece titled Avoiding the Next Obama and commend the author, L.E. Ikenga, for a job well-done. She articulated nicely something Ive long lamented: the virulence of the virus of liberalism. It is so virulent, in fact, that it spreads like wildfire even throughout a place such as the Third World, which some may think would have little acquaintance with it. And I have sometimes told people how it spreads: oh-so bright young skulls full of mush from faraway lands come to the West to be educated at our oh-so fine universities, contract the virus, and then return to their own nations and infect the hapless souls who lap up their intellectualism ...

In reading about the possible land battles that might have ensued in a Third World War in Europe, Ive found an interesting parallel with the Schlieffen Plan of 1914 and the Manstein Plan of 1940.
For instance, he accurately quotes World Bank statistics to show that multinational corporations are not investing in the poorest countries of the Third World, but mostly in each other and middle-tier countires like Brazil and Mexico. Hes right to point out that this pattern of investment is not a repeat of what Lenin described as the super-exploitation of the third world. (MNCs, as a rule, dont go to the poorest countries unless they harbor certain resources like oil.) What he fails to mention is that this same data points to a failure of the dominant development model, as pushed by the World Bank itself, along with the IMF. The World Bank, whose mission is to help poor countries develop, is the leader of the banking pack. Where its investments go, MNC investments often follow. MNCs rarely invest in countries unless the bank has been there first. In effect, the bank does due diligence on third world risks for the multinationals. The problem is that most of the Banks money (particularly ...

Child mortality is on the rise in the United States. For half a century the US has seen a sustained decline in the number of children who die before their fifth birthday. But since 2000 this trend has been reversed.. Although the US leads the world in healthcare spending - per head of population it spends twice what other rich OECD nations spend on average, 13 per cent of its national income - this high level goes disproportionately on the care of white Americans. It has not been targeted to eradicate large disparities in infant death rates based on race, wealth and state of residence.. The infant mortality rate in the US is now the same as in Malaysia. High levels of spending on personal health care reflect Americas cutting-edge medical technology and treatment. But the paradox at the heart of the US health system is that, because of inequalities in health financing, countries that spend substantially less than the US have, on average, a healthier population. A baby boy from one of the top 5 ...

The vicious form of cholera has already killed 7,000 people in Haiti, where it surfaced in a remote village in October 2010. Leading researchers from Harvard Medical School and elsewhere told ABC News that, despite UN denials, there is now a mountain of evidence suggesting the strain originated in Nepal, and was carried to Haiti by Nepalese soldiers who came to Haiti to serve as UN peacekeepers after the earthquake that ravaged the country on Jan. 12, 2010 -- two years ago today. Haiti had never seen a case of cholera until the arrival of the peacekeepers, who allegedly failed to maintain sanitary conditions at their base ...
Kaposis sarcoma (KS)is the commonest malignancy associated with HIV/AIDS. Therapy for this cancer, which causes substantial morbidity, is suboptimal in resource poor settings. The reasons for this are: advanced state of immunosuppression when patients present for clinical care, concomitant opportunistic infections, non- availability of antiretroviral therapy (ART), non-availability and toxicity of chemotherapy (CXT), when available, in patients with full blown AIDS, prohibitive costs of bone marrow support and fiscal constraints in resource poor settings.. A recent Cochrane Review assessed the effectiveness of current therapeutic regimens for HIV KS, with a focus on options available in resource poor settings. The major selection criteria for this review were randomized controlled trials for HIV KS in adults. The main conclusions were that data from randomized controlled trials on effective treatments for HIV KS are sparse, particularly among people who are also taking highly active ...

Maybe one of the MDs on here can comment, but Ill bet it is safer for the woman to do it this way. Since apparently this abortion doctor was a bit fumble-fingered, he may have decided to avoid further perforated uteruses, cervixes, and bowels by not attempting the equivalent of dismembering a small chicken using small pliers, while reaching through a flexible fire hose into a easily torn plastic bag. I mean really, once youre in the baby-killin bidness, why NOT just ignore a silly legal fiction and minimize the risk to mom by extracting the baby the old fashioned way and then doing the necessary?

The government inspectors who had granted him de facto immunity from, um, everything? ...
Every once in a while a simple solution gracefully solves a problem that affects a large number of people. It doesnt happen often, but when it does, its wonderful to see the results. This is the type of thing most scientist hope to experience at least once in their careers. I think most of us at one point in time have hoped: please let me improve the world in some small way to make life easier for some people.. I have to admit as a scientist I love to see graceful solutions to any problem. Prof. Josh Silver at the University of Oxford has come up with just such a brilliant simple solution that any scientist who understands index of refraction will say: Ahhh… yes! about. Prof. Silver has made plastic glasses with adaptive lenses for third world countries. In third world countries to get glasses right now you have to either already know (by magic) your prescription, or try and somehow happen across an optometrist (and you thought it was just about affording a roof over your head!). ...
Why should the developed world care about cancer in the third world? Well, certainly for humanitarian reasons, but also because developing nations have much to teach developed countries about cancer, notes Joe Harford, PhD, Director of the Office of International Affairs in NCIs Office of the Director.. Research done anywhere can help everywhere, he said, citing chemotherapy treatment for Burkitts lymphoma, which grew out of research done in Africa. He noted that as third world countries become more developed and adopt western diets and lifestyles, this transition provides unique cancer research opportunities.. Many US organizations, even though they may have American in their name, are becoming much more internationally focused, added Dr. Harford, noting that the US National Cancer Act of 1971 specifically directed the United States to support cancer research beyond its geographical boundaries.. Historically, cancer has not been thought of as a public health problem in the developing ...

I know either I have IBD or IBS. LAST 30 years I have it. I came back from death time to time. First time when the doctor told my mother (30 years ago, in a third world country) there were no treatment for me. Just Pray . Only God can cure me. We submitted ourselves to God and relax. My mom gave me liquid diet almost one year. I became a skeleton. Then slowly I became human again!! Fortunately, 30 year ago, in a third world, there were no Western treatments for my disease. I had to follow my mothers natural diet and pray. Nothing else. I survive with a very healthy body. It comes once in a year, bits me up, puts me in the bed for a day or two (usually it happens when I am emotionally distrub or some specific food I eat). Otherwise I am good in health. I never go to the doctor for that. Because I count it as a blessing compair to one year non stop suffering ...
However, over the past half century, as the world population has increased and water has become increasingly scarce, it has become less and less a shared resource. By the 1970s international organisations such as the United Nations, UNICEF, World Health Organisation and the UN Development Plan began to highlight the plight of the poor in the third world. By 2003 more than a billion people, a quarter of the worlds population, had no access to safe drinking water. Every year more than five million people (mostly children) die from water-born diseases, such as dysentery and diarrhoea. Global water consumption is now doubling every twenty years, more than twice the rate of population growth. The UN is now predicting that water will become more and more scarce, and global per capita water availability could decline by a third during the next twenty years. The poor in the third world, who are already suffering from lack of water, will be the worst affected. ...
Bettelheim vigorously disagreed. He argued that both theory and concrete analysis show that differences in living standards and class consciousness between the first and third world working classes were rooted in the unequal development of capitalist production in different countries, and the effects of this inequality of development on the intensity and productivity of labor.5 It was differences in the organic composition of capital that allowed workers in imperialist countries to produce more value in a given period of labor-time, which in turn accounted for international wage differentials. The rate of exploitation within imperialist countries, according to Bettelheim, was actually greater than in the colonized countries. This was not to suggest that their level of consumption was lower than the that of the third world; rather that wages there are relatively lower, in comparison with productivity expressed in money terms.6 At the heart of Emmanuels thesis of unequal exchange, ...

For decades, the leading causes of mortality have differed between low income countries and high income countries. Those who have worked their careers in health and development probably never thought they would see the day when maternal/child health and communicable diseases would not be the leading health burden in many low income countries.. The new actor is non-communicable diseases (NCDs), which are characterized by chronic diseases (cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, and chronic respiratory disease), along with injury and mental health which are now responsible for half the health burden in South Asia. Thus, the challenge now is how best to juggle this double burden.. Currently, many compelling reasons are pushing countries toward starting to tackle NCDs. From both a social and political standpoint, South Asians are 6 years younger than those in the rest of the world at their first heart attack. This type of trend threatens a countrys ability to fully capitalize on the demographic ...
Rt Hon Jacinda Ardern, Prime Minister, New Zealand said: Dose sharing can help us make the best use of available vaccines, and the COVAX Facility provides an efficient and equitable way to share doses with others.. Per Olsson Fridh, Minister for International Development Cooperation, Sweden said: COVAX represents our best way of ending the pandemic by ensuring equitable global access to safe and effective vaccines. Already reaching over 100 countries, COVAX also shows what we can achieve by working together - from scientists and manufacturers to governments and multilateral organizations, to health workers around the globe. I am proud of Swedens contribution of US$ 280 million, making Sweden the largest contributor relative to our population. This is an investment not only in global solidarity, but also in our common objective of putting an end to the pandemic.

Obstetrics and Gynecology International is a peer-reviewed, Open Access journal that aims to provide a forum for scientists and clinical professionals working in obstetrics and gynecology. The journal publishes original research articles, review articles, and clinical studies related to obstetrics, maternal-fetal medicine, general gynecology, gynecologic oncology, uro-gynecology, reproductive medicine and infertility, reproductive endocrinology, and sexual medicine.
Purpose Access to critical care is a crucial component of healthcare systems. In low-income countries, the burden of critical illness is substantial, but the capacity to provide care for critically ill patients in intensive care units (ICUs) is unknown. Our aim was to systematically review the published literature to estimate the current ICU capacity in low-income countries. Methods We searched 11 databases and included studies of any design, published 2004-August 2014, with data on ICU capacity for pediatric and adult patients in 36 low-income countries (as defined by World Bank criteria; population 850 million). Neonatal, temporary, and military ICUs were excluded. We extracted data on ICU bed numbers, capacity for mechanical ventilation, and information about the hospital, including referral population size, public accessibility, and the source of funding. Analyses were descriptive. Results Of 1,759 citations, 43 studies from 15 low-income countries met inclusion criteria. They described 36
Dont say we can trade for food. Our trade depends on cheap oil, and that era is rapidly coming to an end. Also, the whole world is undergoing a population explosion - those countries with food surpluses to trade are going to need those surpluses to feed their own increased populations. Anyhow, what, exactly, are we going to trade with? We have exported the bulk of our real wealth creation - manufacturing. The City? All smoke and mirrors. The City doesnt create wealth: all it does is concentrate money. The creation of real wealth is the creation of manufactured goods. Suppose you had all the money in the world, and I had all the manufactured goods. But tomorrow you need to buy a car to travel somewhere. How much do you suppose Im going to make you pay for that car? By the day after tomorrow I would have all the manufactured goods in the world minus one car, and I would also have all the money in the world. All you would have is one car. How would you pay for fuel for that car ...

The socioeconomic health and other development status of the world have changed rapidly and radically in recent years. Spectacular scientific advancement has led humans into outer space and also to apply such advanced knowledge and skill to health sciences, with which millions of lives have been saved. Yet, the majority of people in over 150 countries around the world had a per-capita Gross National Income (GNI) of below US$10 725 in 2005, which are known generally, as the low- and middle-income (LMI) countries as classified by the World Bank (World Bank 2006a). People in many LMI countries live in poverty with inadequate healthcare and low health status. This chapter reviews the history and development of public health in LMI countries of which about one-third are classified as least-developed nations. It provides an insight that could contribute to the solution of present and future challenges and opportunities for health development which actually influence the health of the world.

Just because some Labour numpty thought that walking in a third world market was a nice experience and thought they would bring that to every street in London, does not mean it is correct, right or in any sense desirable.

If these Labour scum wish to live in the third world in a sea of filth, then I am sure we can afford a few air tickets for them to be banished forever.

Indias water mismanagement is enough to make one drown in despair.. Today, all rivers and lakes within and near population centres are grossly polluted with organic and hazardous pollutants. Not a single Indian city can provide potable tap water.. Interstate water disputes over river water allocations are becoming intense and widespread. And there are no signs that the situation will improve in the near future.. The reasons are many. They include decades of incompetence and indifference at central, state and municipal levels, a population expected to grow to 1.7 billion by 2050, and a mushrooming middle class eating a more protein-rich diet requiring significantly more water to produce. Laws and regulations are rarely enforced and there appears to be little appetite for better technologies.. The last truly competent water minister was K L Rao, an engineering professor who built irrigation infrastructure to improve agriculture when he was in office more than half a century ago.. If surface water ...
I often wonder - the third world child is carried everywhere until they walk and see much of social life, then they are sat in the same room as a collection of adults having adult conversation, and allowed to run around the village. Modern North American children, by contrast, are stuck in a separate room staring at a ceiling a lot of the time. If theyre lucky, the same playtime mobile for a year. What little social input they get, a lot comes from television, a non-responsive medium. Then, in early adolescence when third-world children must deal with the puzzle and challenges of simple survival let alone succeeding, our adolescents are left to sit in a separate rec room and vegetate if they so desire - think Waynes World, but without the Mandarin fluency.

RL: That was the third World Championships I qualified for. It is a lot of hard work to make it that far in Powerlifting, hours and hours of work in the gym.. The first World Championships I qualified for (82.5 KG, unequipped), I failed to place. I was so far behind the Gold medalist it was as if there was an extra event in his total I hadnt shown up for, lol.. I didnt pay it no mind, though. I did my best and stuck to my game plan. I kept at it, and as the years went by I qualified for the Single Lift World Championships in the 90KG weight class (unequipped). That time I was able to place and bring home some medals.. However, it was not the three lift Powerlifting World Championships. I had unfinished business in the 3 lift. This last World Championships was for the three lift World title, and it was my third World Championships. I felt I was ready. I refused to be denied.. As for celebrating, we were in Boston, and went to a restaurant called the Prudential. It is 52 stories up, overlooks ...

Cancer care is really fundamentally sensitive to improvements in overall health system strengthening. Cancer really stresses all that we know about health systems in terms of their weaknesses, their strengths and the opportunities and in order to deliver really good high quality cancer outcomes you need to have built into your healthcare system all the foundational aspects - medicine, pathology, surgery. So overall health system strengthening is absolutely crucial to delivering high quality cancer outcomes.. How do these systemic barriers affect low and middle income countries?. In low and middle income countries were seeing very different health transitions from what we experienced in high income countries. Theyre aging far more rapidly; there are some very complex transitions occurring so theyre not experiencing just cancer and other non-communicable diseases, theyre also having to deal with parallel increases in communicable diseases as well. This makes it very complex for health system ...
Despite having some of the highest tax rates in the country, Los Angeles is also crumbling at the infrastructure level. As we reported back in 2014, the writing was already on the wall for L.A. back then, with mainstream media reports explaining that:. … from buckling sidewalks to potholed thoroughfares to storm drains that cant handle a little rain, the infrastructure that holds the second-largest U.S. city together is suffering from years of deferred maintenance.. Much of California - and much of the U.S. as a whole, for that matter - is in similar serious disrepair. San Francisco has become a giant toilet; Mississippis roadways are collapsing; and lets not even talk about the bridges in Rhode Island.. One might try to exclusively blame Leftist politics for these failures, but lets face it: Both blue and red states are stricken with the types of political corruption that are causing this country to become worse than a Third World country - or as Dr. Pinsky puts it, we have too many ...

By the end of this century, with increasing development and industrialization, many of the Third World countries will become highly urbanised. Thus there seems to be a genuine concern about tackling the issues of urban growth and the various problems related to this growth. The book by Gilbert and Gugler studies various concepts in urbanisation and offers a rich review of previously published material. They deal with how poverty, development and cities are linked and the effect they have on each other. They also deal with political responses both by the government and the urban poor to these problems. ...
Risk-factor burden was greatest in high-income countries with the mean INTERHEART score highest in these nations, intermediate in middle-income countries, and lowest in low-income countries (p < 0.001). In high-income countries, the INTERHEART score was higher in rural areas, compared to urban areas; in lower- and middle-income countries, the risk score was higher in urban areas, compared to rural areas. Conversely, the rates of major cardiovascular events (death from cardiovascular causes, myocardial infarction, stroke, or heart failure) were lowest in high-income countries, intermediate in middle-income countries, and highest in low-income countries, with rates of 3.99, 5.38, and 6.43 events per 1,000 person-years, respectively (p < 0.001). ...

Im excited to be spending the week with US policy makers and representatives from the LIVESTRONG Foundation and MSH in Uganda and Rwanda. Were here to look at the burden of Non-Communicable Disease and how they are, or are not, taken into account in the national health systems of the two countries. So far, over a very short period of time weve been privileged to meet with many of the top decision-makers and senior management of Ugandas health system and have heard first hand of the challenges and triumphs theyve experienced in dealing with NCDs in low resource settings.. The great challenge of combating NCDs in a country like Uganda is that they are just one of many critical priorities within the health sector; not surprisingly most of Ugandas health budget and donor aid for health are channeled into fighting communicable disease and funding child survival and maternal health programming.. There is strong clear message from donors and government alike that additional funds will not be ...
The international research team found risk factors for cardiovascular disease was lowest in low income countries, intermediate in middle income countries and highest in high income countries. However, the incidence of serious cardiovascular disease such as heart attacks, strokes, heart failure and deaths followed the opposite pattern: highest in the low income countries, intermediate in middle income countries and lowest in high income countries. Hospitalizations for less severe cardiovascular diseases were highest in the high income countries.
Fine. lets say: if one stops eating but gets hit by a car 10 days later because he was too hungry to walk properly and see clearly, lets be call that death by starvation too. Happy?. With the 2nd definition, perhaps most people in China in those years were in a state of hunger, and most died indirectly as a result.. If you go with the 2nd criterion, then you have to be consistent: a third world, a poor nation, with its food supply issue not fully resolved, naturally will have most of its citiznes living in hunger and poverty, and the average life span is short as a result. Its pretty natural and unsurprising to conclude then, that in any third world poor nation, most seniors deaths were indirectly as result of hunger, so most senior citizens in poor third world countries starved to deaths (going with the 2nd defintion).. So, going with this defintion, ever since the founding of Peoples Republic in 49, before Chinese economic reforms in early 80′s, most of Chinese seniors starved to ...
Sub-Saharan Africa is the eye of the HIV epidemic. This study was conducted when treatment for the majority of HIV-infected patients in low resource settings was considered unattainable and the risks of diagnosing HIV often outweighed the benefits. Coupled with the complexities of HIV diagnosis in infancy, children typically were only diagnosed once already ill or not at all. Key strategies to address the paediatric epidemic focused on preventing mother to child transmission and reducing mortality and morbidity of infected children predominantly with co-trimoxazole prophylaxis. Both strategies required early diagnosis of HIV infection in infancy for monitoring prevention programs and identifying infected children respectively. The diagnostic algorithm for resource limited settings recommended the use of inexpensive, technically simpler HIV antibody detection assays that are unsuitable for use in HIV-exposed children under 12-months of age. Paradoxically this algorithm provided a barrier to HIV ...
I saw one post where the poster says we need to become globally competitive in manufacturing. I say we dont. We need to start thinking about rebuilding our infrastructure, and new engineering projects. Mainly because we are falling behind on this, and our interstate system is crumbling, a lot of our infrastructure is starting to crumble. no one wants to invest in it? why? it very expensive. This is the problem with todays capitalism. Its a race to the bottom to the point where even fewer people within a developed country get to enjoy the conditions of living in a developed country. it doesnt mean a life of luxury, but simply being able to live, and not worry about boiling sewage so that you have drinking water. But if we have to accept lower wages to be competitive I think thats not viable, and for a lot of these developing countries. They need to have a union movement, the working class has to rise up....

I thought it was a very interesting discussion. I started with an overview of the role of pathology in managing patients in developing countries and why pathology is important. So in order to treat a patient and manage a patient appropriately we need the correct diagnosis and thats where pathology comes to assess whether at first their tumour is benign or malignant, whether it needs to be taken out or not, what type, how aggressive it is, the nodal status and so on, all the prognostic parameters that tell us how to manage the patient and whats the likelihood for this patient to survive. There was an overview as well of the resources in these countries and how little pathology is supported there. The number of pathologists is low and there are four countries, for example, in sub-Saharan Africa with no pathology at all. So this was really eye-opening.. Then we talked about some experiences from the pathologists in the UK helping out pathologists in Africa, particularly in Nigeria and Egypt, and ...
Assessing the impact of digital health projects and applications is a key challenge, especially in low resource settings. Full evaluative field studies are resource-intensive and time-consuming. Less demanding approaches that could provide rapid insights would be helpful. This paper presents some short-cut approaches for rapid assessments that can provide useful early indications of strengths and weaknesses and can ensure that evaluative efforts are focused on key uncertainties, are not wasted on unpromising interventions, and make the most of what is already known.. ...
INTRODUCTION: Epidemiological transition theory, first postulated by Omran in 1971, provides a useful framework for understanding cause-specific mortality changes and may contribute usefully to predictions about cause-specific mortality. However, understandings of mortality transitions and associated epidemiological changes remain poorly defined for public health practitioners due to lack of evidence from low- and middle-income countries. Therefore, understanding of the concept and development of epidemiological transition theory as well as population burden of premature mortality attributable to risk factors is needed.. OBJECTIVES: This thesis aims to understand how epidemiological transition theory has been applied in different contexts, using available evidence on mortality transitions from high, middle- and low- income countries, as well as the contribution of risk factors to mortality transitions, particularly for premature mortality.. METHODS: A Medline literature search from 1971 to 2013 ...

A very interesting discussion. Here some personal observations. Let me state that I am a wilderness tour guide in a third world country with small groups. For some reason or another I have teachers from all over the world among my clients. I spent hours taking to them and I believe we are facing a world wide crisis not only an American one. I believe though that in America it is the worst and it has something to do with American culture. But before I elaborate here a few stories that have stuck in my mind:. - PE teacher from Boulder CO. Great guy, lovely character a real role model if there ever was one. He tells how kids from affluent!!! families don´t even have eaten breakfast when they come to school. Why not? To stressful for the parents no time. In that particular third world country that was unheard of. My partner guide who is a local PE teacher couldn´t believe it. No matter how poor the parents no mother lets her kid go to school without breakfast. Our customer from Boulder also told ...
Healthyaddict also attempts to tackle the dilemma of altruism. Why do humans do things that are a cost to them and a benefit to others? It doesnt make any sense according to evolution where everything is measured only by its survival benefit. Healthyaddict suggests altruism is a sort of reverse to the dont kill and you wont be killed principle; altruism is a do this and theyll do it back to you strategy. She gives the example of chimps picking bugs off other chimps. They do it in the hope that later, some chimp will pick bugs off them. I think healthyaddict needs to look up the definition of altruism. If you are expecting something in return, then it isnt altruism by definition. When people give money to starving children in third world countries, they never expect the children to someday repay them. Neither does the giver imagine that someday he might find himself in a third world country and will need some, middle class Westerner to give him food. ...

Nations cant be mentally ill because they are not people. But nations are quite capable of creating conditions that either exacerbate or assuage. If you look at the rates quoted by our Fake Ranch, it sounds really bad, but he isnt giving you the whole truth. Mental illness is seen at nearly double our rates in third world countries. All those happy, non-WEIRD farmers and ranchers of the world are doing much worse because they are living under the stresses of eking out a sub-subsistence existence where the slightest disruption in the weather can cause mass starvation, migration and civil war. Compare the US to other First World countries and you find that the US is at the bottom of the barrel. We would all be in much better shape in most parts of Europe, excepting (interestingly enough) the UK and Holland.

Respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) is a major contributor to neonatal mortality worldwide. However, little information is available regarding rates of RDS-specific mortality in low-income countries, and technologies for RDS treatment are used inconsistently in different health care settings. Our objective was to better understand the interventions that have decreased the rates of RDS-specific mortality in high-income countries over the past 60 years. We then estimated the effects on RDS-specific mortality in low-resource settings.
The recent violence in South Africa wasnt just a battle between different factions of the governing African National Congress. Clearly, there were tensions between black supporters of former president Jacob Zuma and current president Cyril Ramaphosa. Some Zuma supporters may never stop demanding his release from prison. However, there were deeper tensions and problems that the riots, looting, and violence revealed. Last week was just another step in the process of a once First World country reverting to the African mean.. The looting was much worse than the brazen crime and theft we now take for granted in San Francisco. Queen Nandi Drive in Durban was pillaged mercilessly. The city was probably the hardest hit in the entire country, with 40,000 businesses and 5,000 informal traders reportedly damaged by rioting. Soweto and Johannesburg also looked devastated.. ...
Third World countries need for hard currency is the main reason to log the rainforests, as most of the logs are exported to First World countries. Ironically, developing nations pay almost half of their total earnings from tropical hardwood exports for paper pulp,[85] as they buy their wood chips back as pulp. Almost two- thirds of paper pulp produced is manufactured into packaging materials, tissues, and convenience products such as paper cups and plates.[86]. Japan is heavily dependent on foreign sources of wood chips: it seeks about half of its sources overseas.[87] If US and Canadian softwood chip prices increase, Japan and Europe will turn to Southeast Asia and tropical America for hardwood chips. Canadas forests are only a few thousand years old and will disappear under ice during the next ice age in twenty thousand years. Some forests of southeast Asia have existed continuously for seventy million years, or since the days of the dinosaurs.[88]. It could take hundreds of thousands of ...
Scientists in developed and developing countries need to be on an equal footing when they work together on global issues from climate change to public health, AAAS President Geri Richmond said Thursday at the start of the 2016 AAAS Annual Meeting.. Richmond has worked to improve scientific capacity and collaborations in Africa, South America, and most recently Southeast Asia as a U.S. Science Envoy to the region. Scientists from developed countries must recognize the importance of having everyone at the table when were discussing global problems, she said. Its important that we have a variety of voices, a variety of backgrounds, and a variety of cultures in order to come up with these solutions.. At a breakfast for journalists at the meeting, Richmond also answered questions about several high-profile cases of sexual misconduct and sexual harassment in science. She said the recent cases are probably the tip of the iceberg and that left unchecked, pervasive harassment would slow down ...
Low-income countries were hit especially hard by sharp increases in world food and fuel prices in 2007-08 and the global financial crisis that followed. In response, the International Monetary Fund scaled up its financial assistance to low-income countries and revamped its concessional lending facilities to make them more flexible in meeting the diverse needs of these countries. Creating Policy Space in Low-Income Countries during the Recent Crises assesses empirically the outcome of the IMF response, and provides insight into how IMF-supported programs in low-income countries have been adapted to the changing economic circumstances in these countries. The authors report that these programs have provided expanded policy space in the face of the global price shocks and financial crisis.
Numerous studies have reported the economic burden of childhood diarrhea in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Yet, empirical data on the cost of diarrheal illness is sparse, particularly in LMICs. In this study we review the existing literature on the cost of childhood diarrhea in LMICs and generate comparable estimates of cost of diarrhea across 137 LMICs. The systematic literature review included all articles reporting cost estimates of diarrhea illness and treatment from LMICs published between January 2006 and July 2018. To generate country-specific costs, we used service delivery unit costs from the World Health Organizations Choosing Interventions that are Cost-Effective (WHO-CHOICE database). Non-medical costs were calculated using the ratio between direct medical and direct non-medical costs, derived from the literature review. Indirect costs (lost wages to caregivers) were calculated by multiplying the average GDP per capita per day by the average number of days lost to illness
Framework Programs for Global Health Innovation (FRAME Innovation) will provide support to institutions in the U.S. and in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) to build capacity within their institutions to develop broadly interdisciplinary, postdoctoral (or post-terminal degree) research training programs in global health directed towards encouraging innovation in health-related products, processes and policies. The program emphasizes hands-on, problem-solving, and collaborative approaches and allows U.S. and LMIC trainees to be trained together.. Interdisciplinary trainee teams should be challenged to identify critical health needs in LMICs that can be addressed through innovation, and carry out the underlying scientific research necessary to develop, validate, and test their concepts. To increase the potential for translation of research findings into realized health benefits, project design should include considerations of implementation appropriate to low resource settings in LMICs, ...
Background This study explores the relationship between BMI and national-wealth and the cross-level interaction effect of national-wealth and individual household-wealth using multilevel analysis. Methods Data from the World Health Survey conducted in 2002-2004, across 70 low-, middle- and high-income countries was used. Participants aged 18 years and over were selected using multistage, stratified cluster sampling. BMI was used as outcome variable. The potential determinants of individual-level BMI were participants sex, age, marital-status, education, occupation, household-wealth and location(rural/urban) at the individual-level. The country-level factors used were average national income (GNI-PPP) and income inequality (Gini-index). A two-level random-intercepts and fixed-slopes model structure with individuals nested within countries was fitted, treating BMI as a continuous outcome. Results The weighted mean BMI and standard-error of the 206,266 people from 70-countries was 23.90 (4.84). All
Background: In Bangladesh, most patients with Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) cannot afford standard treatment with intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) or a standard plasma exchange (PE) course, which partly explains the high rate of mortality and residual disability associated with GBS in this country. Small volume plasma exchange (SVPE) is an affordable and potentially effective alternative form of plasma exchange. SVPE is the repeated removal of small volumes of supernatant plasma over several days via sedimentation of patient whole blood. The aim of this study is to define the clinical feasibility and safety of SVPE in patients with GBS in resource poor settings. Methods: A total of 20 adult patients with GBS will be enrolled for SVPE at a single center in Bangladesh. Six daily sessions of whole blood sedimentation and plasma removal will be performed in all patients with GBS with a target to remove an overall volume of at least 8 liters (L) of plasma over a total of 8 days. Serious adverse ...
In many high-income countries, national and regional health authorities, along with individual healthcare institutions, are putting into place prevention, control, surveillance and reporting measures. Even if significantly reduced in the recent years, incidence of HAI remains high, particularly among at-risk populations. For example, approximately 25-30% of ICU patients in high-income countries experience at least one HAI episode1,2. In low- and middle- income countries, the challenges are further complicated by underdeveloped infrastructures and issues related to hygiene and sanitation. The WHO estimates that ICU-acquired infection is at least 2-3-fold higher than in high-income countries and that device-associated infection may be up to 13 times higher than in the US1.. HAIs include all types of infections including urinary-tract infections (most common in higher-income countries1,2), surgical site infections (most common in lower-income countries1), respiratory infections, gastro-intestinal ...
