Hygiene behaviour in rural Nicaragua in relation to diarrhoea. (1/790)

BACKGROUND: Childhood diarrhoea is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in Nicaragua. Amongst the risk factors for its transmission are 'poor' hygiene practices. We investigated the effect of a large number of hygiene practices on diarrhoeal disease in children aged <2 years and validated the technique of direct observation of hygiene behaviour. METHODS: A prospective follow-up study was carried out in a rural zone of Nicaragua. From the database of a previously conducted case-control study on water and sanitation 172 families were recruited, half of which had experienced a higher than expected rate of diarrhoea in their children and the other half a lower rate. Hygiene behaviour was observed over two mornings and diarrhoea incidence was recorded with a calendar, filled out by the mother, and collected every week for 5 months. RESULTS: Of 46 'good' practices studied, 39 were associated with a lower risk of diarrhoea, five were unrelated and only for two a higher risk was observed. Washing of hands, domestic cleanliness (kitchen, living room, yard) and the use of a diaper/underclothes by the child had the strongest protective effect. Schooling (>3 years of primary school) and better economic position (possession of a radio) had a positive influence on general hygiene behaviour, education having a slightly stronger effect when a radio was present. Individual hygiene behaviour appeared to be highly variable in contrast with the consistent behaviour of the community as a whole. Feasible and appropriate indicators of hygiene behaviour were found to be domestic cleanliness and the use of a diaper or underclothes by the child. CONCLUSION: A consistent relationship between almost all hygiene practices and diarrhoea was detected, more schooling producing better hygiene behaviour. The high variability of hygiene behaviour at the individual level requires repeated observations (at least two) before and after the hygiene education in the event one wants to measure the impact of the campaign on the individual.  (+info)

Dirt and diarrhoea: formative research in hygiene promotion programmes. (2/790)

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

A reassessment of the cost-effectiveness of water and sanitation interventions in programmes for controlling childhood diarrhoea. (3/790)

Cost-effectiveness analysis indicates that some water supply and sanitation (WSS) interventions are highly cost-effective for the control of diarrhoea among under-5-year-olds, on a par with oral rehydration therapy. These are relatively inexpensive "software-related" interventions such as hygiene education, social marketing of good hygiene practices, regulation of drinking-water, and monitoring of water quality. Such interventions are needed to ensure that the potentially positive health impacts of WSS infrastructure are fully realized in practice. The perception that WSS programmes are not a cost-effective use of health sector resources has arisen from three factors: an assumption that all WSS interventions involve construction of physical infrastructure, a misperception of the health sector's role in WSS programmes, and a misunderstanding of the scope of cost-effectiveness analysis. WSS infrastructure ("hardware") is generally built and operated by public works agencies and financed by construction grants, operational subsidies, user fees and property taxes. Health sector agencies should provide "software" such as project design, hygiene education, and water quality regulation. Cost-effectiveness analysis should measure the incremental health impacts attributable to health sector investments, using the actual call on health sector resources as the measure of cost. The cost-effectiveness of a set of hardware and software combinations is estimated, using US$ per case averted, US$ per death averted, and US$ per disability-adjusted life year (DALY) saved.  (+info)

Psychological factors associated with recurrent vaginal candidiasis: a preliminary study. (4/790)

OBJECTIVE: To identify psychological factors associated with chronic recurrent vaginal candidiasis. DESIGN: A cross sectional exploratory study of women with chronic, recurrent vaginal candidiasis. PATIENTS: 28 women found culture positive and treated for vaginal candidiasis by a clinic physician at least twice within the past 6 months. All women reported that they had experienced vaginal thrush six or more times within 1 year. A comparison group comprised 16 women with no history of recurrent vaginal candidiasis, of similar age range, and recruited from a women's family planning service. METHODS: Both groups were compared on demographic criteria, sexual health histories, mental health, and psychological health characteristics. A purpose designed structured interview was administered alongside a battery of standardised psychometric instruments measuring mood, satisfaction with life, self esteem, and perceived stress. RESULTS: The two groups showed considerable similarities, with no significant differences in demographic characteristics and most sexual health issues. However, women with recurrent vaginal candidiasis were significantly more likely to suffer clinical depression, to be less satisfied with life, to have poorer self esteem, and to perceive their lives as more stressful. Additionally, women with recurrent vaginal candidiasis reported that their candidiasis seriously interfered with their sexual and emotional relationships. CONCLUSIONS: Overall, this study identified many areas of psychological morbidity associated with chronic vaginal candidiasis, and indicates that development of appropriate psychological treatment initiatives in this area is long overdue.  (+info)

In vivo skin decontamination of methylene bisphenyl isocyanate (MDI): soap and water ineffective compared to polypropylene glycol, polyglycol-based cleanser, and corn oil. (5/790)

In the home and workplace, decontamination of a chemical from skin is traditionally done with a soap-and-water wash, although some workplaces may have emergency showers. It has been assumed that these procedures are effective, yet workplace illness and even death occur from chemical contamination. Water, or soap and water, may not be the most effective means of skin decontamination, particularly for fat-soluble materials. This study was undertaken to help determine whether there are more effective means of removing methylene bisphenyl isocyanate (MDI), a potent contact sensitizer, from the skin. MDI is an industrial chemical for which skin decontamination, using traditional soap and water and nontraditional polypropylene glycol, a polyglycol-based cleanser (PG-C), and corn oil were all tried in vivo on the rhesus monkey, over 8 h. Water, alone and with soap (5% and 50% soap), were partially effective in the first h after exposure, removing 51-69% of the applied dose. However, decontamination fell to 40-52% at 4 h and 29-46% by 8 h. Thus, the majority of MDI was not removed by the traditional soap-and-water wash; skin tape stripping after washing confirmed that MDI was still on the skin. In contrast, polypropylene glycol, PG-C, and corn oil all removed 68-86% of the MDI in the first h, 74-79% at 4 h, and 72-86% at 8 h. Statistically, polypropylene glycol, PG-C, and corn oil were all better (p < 0.05) than soap and water at 4 and 8 h after dose application. These results indicate that a traditional soap-and-water wash and the emergency water shower are relatively ineffective at removing MDI from the skin. More effective decontamination procedures, as shown here, are available. These procedures are consistent with the partial miscibility of MDI in corn oil and polyglycols.  (+info)

Vulvovaginitis: clinical features, aetiology, and microbiology of the genital tract. (6/790)

AIM: To clarify the contribution of clinical and environmental factors and infection to the aetiology of vulvovaginitis in premenarchal girls, and to determine clinical indicators of an infectious cause. DESIGN: It was necessary first to define normal vaginal flora. Cases were 50 premenarchal girls > 2 years old with symptoms of vulvovaginitis; 50 controls were recruited from girls in the same age group undergoing minor or elective surgery. RESULTS: Interview questionnaire showed no difference between cases and controls in regards to hygiene practices, exposure to specific irritants, or history of possible sexual abuse. Normal vaginal flora was similar to that described in previous studies, with the exception of organisms likely to be associated with sexual activity. 80% of cases had no evidence of an infectious cause. In the 10 cases in whom an infectious cause was found, there was significantly more visible discharge and distinct redness of the genital area on examination compared with other cases. CONCLUSIONS: The findings suggest that vulvovaginitis in this age group is not usually infectious or necessarily related to poor hygiene, specific irritants or sexual abuse, although any of these can present with genital irritation. The possibility of sexual abuse should always be considered when a child presents with genital symptoms, but our data indicate it is not a common contributing factor. Infection is generally associated with vaginal discharge and moderate or severe inflammation.  (+info)

Fin-de-siecle Philadelphia and the founding of the Medical Library Association. (7/790)

Philadelphia at the time of the founding of the Medical Library Association (MLA) is described. Several factors that promoted the birth of the association are discussed, including the rapid increase in the labor force and the rise of other health related professions, such as the American Hospital Association and the professionalization of nursing. The growth of the public hygiene movement in Philadelphia at the time of Sir William Osler's residency in the city is discussed. Finally, the rapid growth of the medical literature is considered a factor promoting the development of the association. This article continues the historical consideration of the MLA begun in the author's article on the three founders of the association. The background information is drawn from the items listed in the bibliography, and the conclusions are those of the author.  (+info)

Occupational hygiene science and its application in occupational health policy, at home and abroad. (8/790)

This paper examines the role of occupational hygiene in the overall framework of occupational health. It draws attention to the unique combination of required individual science subjects, and to the way in which occupational hygiene science contributes to the practice of occupational hygiene in the real world. It focuses in particular on occupational exposure standards. The paper provides, as an example, the specific case of occupational aerosol exposures. It is here that scientific research has made a notable impact on standards and led to a considerable degree of international harmonization. Finally, some broader insights into occupational exposure standards are given, based on experience gained during visits to a number of contrasting countries. The similarities and differences between the various national approaches help indicate what is generic in how standards are set. Such insights provide a basis for further international harmonization in the future. It is concluded that occupational exposure standards appear to be most effectively applied in countries where there are strong occupational hygiene cultures.  (+info)

Hygienic interventions to reduce STI risk among men date back to programmes for servicemen during the first and second world wars.8,9,10 We have initiated three studies involving the use of topical microbicides by men. The first study, reported here, examined genital hygiene attitudes and practices and their temporal relation to sex. The second evaluated the safety and acceptability of three candidate topical microbicide formulations. Thirdly, we are conducting a randomised controlled trial of topical microbicide use by men to prevent the recurrence of BV in their sex partner. This first study demonstrates that men in resource limited areas of Africa realise the importance of bathing and some understand the role of genital hygiene in the transmission of STI. However, perceptions and factors associated with sexual partnerships, and exogenous individual and community level factors may constrain their genital hygiene behaviours.. Bathing at least once daily was linked to educational attainment and ...

Research by the consumer campaign group Which? has revealed that hundreds of hotels across the UK, including those with four and five star ratings, are failing basic food hygiene standards.. The research published this week reveals that 652 UK hotels including B&Bs and guest houses received an improvement required or a food hygiene rating score of two or below under the English rating system. Poor hygiene standards were not limited to the bottom end of the market with hotels sporting two rosettes and four and five stars failing to meet adequate levels of food safety. Specifically, four-star Dean Court Hotel in York, part of the Best Western Premier Collection holds two AA rosettes, but hygiene inspectors found its kitchens in need of major improvement, awarding a rating of just 1. Londons five-star Royal Horseguards hotel also has two AA Rosettes but a hygiene rating of just two. Which? presented these results to the hotels. Best Western blamed the score at Dean Court Hotel in York on a ...

A personal hygiene swab includes a handle and an absorbent material secured to the handle. The handle is elongated and has a first end and a second end. The absorbent material includes an open-cell foam and covers a first end of the handle. The second end of the handle extends from the absorbent material. Another personal hygiene swab includes an absorbent material having a central cavity defining an opening at one end of the absorbent material. The absorbent material is stretchable, and a diameter of the central cavity is configured to accept a finger of a user. Removing fluid from a bodily cavity includes inserting a swab through a bodily orifice and into the bodily cavity, rotating the swab in the bodily cavity to absorb fluid in the bodily cavity, and removing the swab from the bodily cavity through the bodily orifice.
The most frequent adverse event in the healthcare delivery system is acquisition of an infection within a healthcare facility. Since infection control measures are known, simple, and low-cost, we examine why the problem of healthcare-associated infections persists. Hundreds of millions of patients each year are affected by a healthcare-associated infection, with negative medical outcome and financial cost. It is a major public health problem even in countries with advanced healthcare systems. This is a bit perplexing, given that hygienic practices have been known and actively promoted. The objective is to address the question: doesnt the use of disinfection, sterilization, handwashing, and alcohol rubs prevent the spread of pathogenic organisms? We conclude that the persistent high prevalence of nosocomial infections despite known hygienic practices is attributable to two categories of factors: biological and inherent shortcomings of some practices (considered in Part 1), and human factors (considered

Food hygiene refers to good practices that improve the safety of food. Key practices include reducing or eliminating direct health hazards or preventing them from multiplying in foodstuffs. Health hazards may be caused by biological (microbes, parasites and prion proteins), chemical (toxic substances and allergens) or physical materials (foreign objects, insects and bone splinters) found in food.. Food business operators are responsible for the safety of the foodstuffs they supply. This can be ensured with a system of own checks that help operators to control the hygiene and safety of their production processes and products. Operators must comply with the requirements of hygiene legislation concerning foodstuffs and their handling, food establishments and operators obligations. For example, operators are obliged to demonstrate their food hygiene competence with a so-called Hygiene Passport.. In Finland, compliance with hygiene legislation is supervised by municipal food control authorities. ...
Whether it is relative wealth or relative poverty that drives the HIV epidemic in sub-Saharan Africa, is a controversial aspect of HIV/AIDS epidemiology. We suggest that the social epidemiology of HIV in Africa is changing. Previously, new infections were more rapidly acquired by those of relatively higher socioeconomic position (SEP). More recently, those of relatively low SEP are at greater risk. If confirmed, we further suggest in this paper that this pattern would be compatible with Cesar Victoras inverse equity hypothesis, first articulated in relation to child morbidity and mortality. The hypothesis suggests that those of higher SEP benefit first from new health interventions.1. Reviews draw different conclusions about the association between SEP and HIV infection within sub-Saharan African countries. Some authors stress that poverty is a key driver of HIV, and that poverty alleviation is the only sustainable solution.2 Others show that higher education and greater relative wealth are ...
How do you help your children care for their teeth:Teaching your children proper oral hygiene at a very early age is an important part of growing up. You should start by setting an example for your child. If you take a good care of your own teeth, it sends a message that oral health is something to be valued. Dont dig too far on this aspect, just make it fun. Brush along with them and let them choose their own brush when you are shopping.
Personal Care and Hygiene Hygiene is more than just being clean. It is defined as the many practices that help people be and stay healthy. Practicing good personal hygiene is smart for two reasons. First, it helps prevent people from catching and spreading illness and disease. Second, it helps people feel good about themselves and their bodies. In American society, cleanliness is an important issue; poor hygiene is seen as unacceptable and unhealthy.

The immune system is not well understood by the medical profession, most of whom are far more familiar with adaptive immunity. Many doctors still do not recognise, for example, that it is the innate rather than the acquired immune system that is more important in keeping us free from infection. They may know that the innate immune system is damaged by excessive hygiene (the hygiene hypothesis), which has removed important immune-priming compounds from the food chain. However, there is relatively little awareness, that innate immune function can be enhanced by the use of immuno-primers; among which the lead candidate is undoubtedly yeast-derived 1-3, 1-6 beta glucans. Thankfully this is changing.. These important new therapeutic tools are now the subject of intense research programmes; a simple search of the medical and scientific databases reveals a rapid proliferation of publications citing the 1-3, 1-6 beta glucans in a wide variety of applications. The FDA is currently supporting their ...

To begin to elucidate the mechanisms underlying this hypothesis, we studied development of Th2-mediated colitis of the TCRα knockout (KO) mouse in both a specific pathogen-free (SPF) facility and a conventional (CV) facility. After more than five generations in each facility, TCRα KO mice kept in the CV facility developed dramatically less colitis than mice that were kept in the SPF facility. Surprisingly, the suppression of colitis in the CV facility correlated with a significant increase in natural IgM production by B-1 B cells. In contrast, B cell-deficient ...

Triage aims at the early recognition of cases that fall into the definition of COVID-19 case, the assessment of infection severity and the restriction of virus spread to other patients, visitors and healthcare workers. Triage also safeguards health services provided to citizens.. Triage must be carried out before entrance to A&E, and specifically, at the hospitals main gate office (container). A suitable poster with information to incoming individuals must be placed at the triage area. Trained personnel shall ask questions based on the definition of COVID-19 case. Patients who meet the suspected case criteria will be given a standard surgical mask and will be transferred to a separate waiting and examination area (isolation) with available infrastructure and materials for hand hygiene and respiratory hygiene practice, and, if possible, without going through A&E, while adhering to all necessary measures against virus spreading. Moreover, for best triage and early identification of suspected ...

Natural News) Many people get diseases from bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens because of poor hygiene. However, a new study shows that being too clean also makes you prone to superbugs. This raises more concern as the number of people who become ill and die from antibiotic-resistant germs is increasing globally.. Researchers at the Institute of Environmental Biotechnology at Graz University of Technology (TU Graz) in Austria looked at microbial control - which refers to the degree of cleaning and hygiene measures - and how it affects the development of resistances. They conducted the study with national partners of the Medical University of Graz and international partners.. For the study, which was published in the journal Nature Communications, the research team compared all existing microorganisms and antibiotic resistances on surfaces of clinical settings with other built environments. They found that in areas with high levels of hygiene, microbial diversity decreases and the diversity ...

According to the Quran, marriage is intended to be unbounded in time, as indicated by its characterization as a "firm bond" and by the rules governing divorce.[4] The relationship between the spouses should ideally be based on love (mawadda wa rahma, 30:21) and important decisions concerning both spouses should be made by mutual consent.[4] When marital harmony cannot be attained, the Quran allows and even advises the spouses to bring the marriage to an end (2:231), although this decision is not to be taken lightly, and the community is called upon to intervene by appointing arbiters from the two families to attempt a reconciliation (4:35).[5][4] The Quran establishes two further means to avoid hasty divorces.[4] For a menstruating woman, Al-Baqarah 2:228[6] prescribes the waiting (Iddah) period before the divorce is finalized, as three monthly periods. Similarly for non-menstruating women, including post-menopause women and pre-menarche girls, At-Talaq 65:4 prescribes the waiting periods. This ...
The traditional divisions between the branches of Islam can be traced back to disagreement over who would succeed the Islamic prophet Muhammad. Muslims have been instructed to stay united. Division among Muslims is prohibited.[where?][citation needed] However, disagreements and difference of opinion among people do occur. A few months prior to his death, Muhammad delivered a sermon at Ghadir Khumm where he announced that Ali ibn Abi Talib would be his successor.[1] After the sermon, the Muslims pledged allegiance to Ali. Both Shia and Sunni sources agree that Abu Bakr, Umar ibn al-Khattab, and Uthman ibn Affan were among the many who pledged allegiance to Ali at this event.[2][3][4] However, just after Muhammad died, a group of Muslims met at Saqifa, where Umar pledged allegiance to Abu Bakr, who subsequently assumed political power. The event of Saqifah led to the formation of two groups in the Muslim community. One group followed Muhammad's announcement at Ghadir Khumm and kept their ...
A number of scholars/reformers[67][68] have suggested that traditional hudud penalties "may have been suitable for the age in which Muhammad lived" but are no longer,[67] or that "new expression" for "the underlying religious principles and values" of Hudud should be developed.[68] Tariq Ramadan has called for an international moratorium on the punishments of hudud laws until greater scholarly consensus can be reached.[69] Hudud punishments have been called incompatible with international norms of human rights and sometimes simple justice. At least one observer (Sadakat Kadri) has complained that the inspiration of faith has not been a guarantee of justice, citing as an example the execution of two dissidents for "waging war against God" (Moharebeh) in the Islamic Republic of Iran-the dissidents waging war by organizing unarmed political protests.[70][71] The Hudood Ordinance in Pakistan led to the jailing of thousands of women on zina-related charges, were used to file "nuisance or harassment ...
Opponents of dhabīḥah ḥalāl, most notably some animal welfare groups, contend that some methods of slaughter "cause severe suffering to animals" compared to when the animal is stunned before slaughter, which is why the Egyptian Fatwa Committee has agreed to the electronarcosis. In the United Kingdom, the government funded an independent advisory body Farm Animal Welfare Council to examine the issue, which recommended that conventional dhabīḥah (along with kosher slaughter (sheḥitah)) without prior stunning be abolished. The FAWC chairwoman of the time, Dr. Judy MacArthur Clark, said, "This is a major incision into the animal and to say that it doesn't suffer is quite ridiculous." According to Dr Peter Jinman, president of the British Veterinary Association, vets are "looking at what is acceptable in the moral and ethical society we live."[26] Muslims counter this by referring to the problems connected with stunning and the alleged benefits of slaughter without stunning.[27] It is ...
