Perspectives from micronutrient malnutrition elimination/eradication programmes. (1/1341)

Micronutrient malnutrition cannot be eradicated, but the elimination and control of iron, vitamin A and iodine deficiencies and their health-related consequences as public health problems are currently the targets of global programmes. Remarkable progress is occurring in the control of goitre and xerophthalmia, but iron-deficiency anaemia (IDA) has been less responsive to prevention and control efforts. Subclinical consequences of micronutrient deficiencies, i.e. "hidden hunger", include compromised immune functions that increase the risk of morbidity and mortality, impaired cognitive development and growth, and reduced reproductive and work capacity and performance. The implications are obvious for human health and national and global economic and social development. Mixes of affordable interventions are available which, when appropriately adapted to resource availability and context, are proven to be effective. These include both food-based interventions, particularly fortification programmes, such as salt iodization, and use of concentrated micronutrient supplements. A mix of accompanying programmes for infection control, community participation, including education, communication and information exchange, and private sector involvement are lessons learned for overcoming deterrents and sustaining progress towards elimination.  (+info)

Perspectives from the dracunculiasis eradication programme. (2/1341)

After a slow beginning in association with the International Drinking Water Supply and Sanitation Decade (1981-1990), the global Dracunculiasis Eradication Programme has reduced the incidence of dracunculiasis by nearly 97%, from an estimated 3.2 million cases in 1986 to less than 100,000 cases in 1997. Over half of the remaining cases are in Sudan. In addition, the programme has already produced many indirect benefits such as improved agricultural production and school attendance, extensive provision of clean drinking-water, mobilization of endemic communities, and improved care of infants. Most workers in the campaign have other responsibilities in their communities or ministries of health besides dracunculiasis eradication.  (+info)

The cost effectiveness of strategies for the treatment of intestinal parasites in immigrants. (3/1341)

BACKGROUND: Currently, more than 600,000 immigrants enter the United States each year from countries where intestinal parasites are endemic. At entry persons with parasitic infections may be asymptomatic, and stool examinations are not a sensitive method of screening for parasitosis. Albendazole is a new, broad-spectrum antiparasitic drug, which was approved recently by the Food and Drug Administration. International trials have shown albendazole to be safe and effective in eradicating many parasites. In the United States there is now disagreement about whether to screen all immigrants for parasites, treat all immigrants presumptively, or do nothing unless they have symptoms. METHODS: We compared the costs and benefits of no preventive intervention (watchful waiting) with those of universal screening or presumptive treatment with 400 mg of albendazole per day for five days. Those at risk were defined as immigrants to the United States from Asia, the Middle East, sub-Saharan Africa, Eastern Europe, and Latin America and the Caribbean. Cost effectiveness was expressed both in terms of the cost of treatment per disability-adjusted life-year (DALY) averted (one DALY is defined as the loss of one year of healthy life to disease) and in terms of the cost per hospitalization averted. RESULTS: As compared with watchful waiting, presumptive treatment of all immigrants at risk for parasitosis would avert at least 870 DALYs, prevent at least 33 deaths and 374 hospitalizations, and save at least $4.2 million per year. As compared with watchful waiting, screening would cost $159,236 per DALY averted. CONCLUSIONS: Presumptive administration of albendazole to all immigrants at risk for parasitosis would save lives and money. Universal screening, with treatment of persons with positive stool examinations, would save lives but is less cost effective than presumptive treatment.  (+info)

Community-level HIV intervention in 5 cities: final outcome data from the CDC AIDS Community Demonstration Projects. (4/1341)

OBJECTIVES: This study evaluated a theory-based community-level intervention to promote progress toward consistent condom and bleach use among selected populations at increased risk for HIV infection in 5 US cities. METHODS: Role-model stories were distributed, along with condoms and bleach, by community members who encouraged behavior change among injection drug users, their female sex partners, sex workers, non-gay-identified men who have sex with men, high-risk youth, and residents in areas with high sexually transmitted disease rates. Over a 3-year period, cross-sectional interviews (n = 15,205) were conducted in 10 intervention and comparison community pairs. Outcomes were measured on a stage-of-change scale. Observed condom carrying and intervention exposure were also measured. RESULTS: At the community level, movement toward consistent condom use with main (P < .05) and nonmain (P < .05) partners, as well as increased condom carrying (P < .0001), was greater in intervention than in comparison communities. At the individual level, respondents recently exposed to the intervention were more likely to carry condoms and to have higher stage-of-change scores for condom and bleach use. CONCLUSIONS: The intervention led to significant communitywide progress toward consistent HIV risk reduction.  (+info)

Methadone treatment by general practitioners in Amsterdam. (5/1341)

In Amsterdam, a three-tiered program exists to deal with drug use and addiction. General practitioners form the backbone of the system, helping to deal with the majority of addicts, who are not criminals and many of whom desire to be free of addiction. Distinctions are made between drugs with "acceptable" and "unacceptable" risks, and between drug use and drug-related crime; patients who fall into the former categories are treated in a nonconfrontational, nonstigmatizing manner; such a system helps prevent the majority of patients from passing into unacceptable, criminalized categories. The overall program has demonstrated harm reduction both for patients and for the city of Amsterdam.  (+info)

Stroke: the global burden. (6/1341)

Stroke is a major global health problem. It is a major cause of mortality, morbidity and disability in developed and increasingly in less developed countries. Worldwide, it is the leading cause of healthy years lost in late adulthood, and evidence indicates that the burden of stroke, particularly in terms of morbidity and disability, will almost certainly increase in the foreseeable future. This review aims to generate a better understanding of the present and projected future global burden of stroke, with particular emphasis on the non-established market economy countries (NEMEC). The first part summarizes and interprets the currently available evidence on stroke mortality, incidence, case-fatality and related disability rates from both established and non-established market economy countries. The second part reviews the main risk factors for stroke. For the modifiable factors, it examines current prevalence rates in NEMEC with a view towards identifying patterns that are relevant for predicting future rates of the disease. Reversing the consequences of stroke is difficult, thus primary prevention is of utmost importance. The potential for prevention is illustrated by the experience of Japan, which in the last two decades has seen substantial declines in stroke mortality--mostly due to reductions in dietary salt intake. The last section discusses potential strategies and approaches to effective stroke prevention and highlights other areas that need to be addressed if stroke management in the coming decades is to be effective.  (+info)

Implementing a nationwide insecticide-impregnated bednet programme in The Gambia. (8/1341)

Earlier studies in The Gambia suggested that the use of impregnated bednets might prove to be a useful malaria control strategy. Based on the results of these studies, in 1992 the Government of The Gambia was encouraged to initiate a National Impregnated Bednet Programme (NIBP) as part of the National Malaria Control Programme Strategy. This paper describes the implementation process/procedure of the NIBP. Evaluation results showed that, overall, 83% of the bednets surveyed has been impregnated, and 77% of children under the age of five years and 78% of women of childbearing age were reported to be sleeping under impregnated bednets.  (+info)

Interaction between clinical and community preventive services is recognized as one of four core strategies in the first National Prevention Strategy (11,29). The Affordable Care Act called for the development of the National Prevention Strategy in recognition of the essential role of prevention in improving the health of persons in the United States (11,29). Making meaningful health improvements through prevention will require action both within and beyond the health-care sector. The National Prevention Strategy highlights the important role of preventive services, including both clinical preventive services and community services discussed in this supplement, and the responsibility of communities to support these services. The public health sector can play a critical role in informing the public and key stakeholders about the benefits of clinical preventive services and in promoting evidence-based strategies such as those identified in this supplement.

Public health cuts will hit the most vulnerable Amanda Lee writes:. With todays budget news, its now clear that the new Queensland government is intent on overseeing the greatest dismantling of public and preventative health services in recent Australian history, yet its still trying to argue this will have no effect on health and wellbeing across the state.. At the centre of this argument is a fiction. That is, a misleading distinction between front-line and desk jobs.. The implication is that the four thousand plus jobs going from Queensland Health contributed little if anything to the health of Queenslanders.. Yet many of the jobs being cut have provided extremely cost- effective health outcomes for the state.. The area of public health I have been involved in - nutrition and physical activity promotion- has a particularly proud record of achievements.. For three of the last four years running, Queensland has been honoured to achieve the Gold Award from the Australian and New Zealand ...

Created in 1984, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF or Task Force) is an independent group of national experts in prevention and evidence-based medicine that works to improve the health of all Americans by making evidence-based recommendations about clinical preventive services such as screenings, counseling services, or preventive medications. The USPSTF is made up of 16 volunteer members who come from the fields of preventive medicine and primary care, including internal medicine, family medicine, pediatrics, behavioral health, obstetrics/gynecology, and nursing. All members volunteer their time to serve on the USPSTF, and most are practicing clinicians.. When Congress authorized the USPSTF, it required the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to support the Task Forces work. The 1998 Public Health Service Act and the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act instruct AHRQ to provide administrative, research, technical, and communication support to the Task Force. ...

Its recommendations are considered the gold standard for clinical preventive services. ...
This statement summarizes the current U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommendations for screening for depression and the supporting scientific evidence and it updates the 1996 recommendations in the Guide to Clinical Preventive Services, second edition.
Given the rapid aging of the U.S. population, increasing the use of preventive services by adults aged 50 or older is a key public health strategy.
This recommendation is consistent with the 2006 recommendation statement on iron supplementation during pregnancy. Both the 2006 and the current recommendation statements found insufficient evidence to determine the balance of the benefits and harms of iron supplementation during pregnancy. Although the 2006 statement recommended screening for iron deficiency anemia in pregnant women, the current recommendation found insufficient evidence to recommend for or against screening. In its review of the evidence to update the 2006 recommendation, the USPSTF found no good- or fair-quality studies on the benefits or harms of screening that would be applicable to the current U.S. population of pregnant women. Since 2006, the USPSTF has updated its methodology to better identify evidence that would be most applicable to the current U.S. population. Therefore, the USPSTF determined that the currently available and applicable evidence on screening for and early treatment of iron deficiency anemia in ...
Tobacco and alcohol use are major risk factors for oral cancer. A total of 20% to 30% of cases of oral cancer worldwide are attributable to cigarette smoking. In the United States, up to 75% of cases of oral cancer may be attributable to tobacco and alcohol use. Additional risk factors include male sex, older age, use of betel quid, ultraviolet light exposure, infection with Candida or bacterial flora, and a compromised immune system. Sexually transmitted oral HPV infection (HPV-16) has recently been recognized as an increasingly important risk factor for oropharyngeal cancer. In the United States, the prevalence of oropharyngeal cancer due to oral HPV infection is probably as high as 80% to 95%. The prevalence of oral HPV infection is associated with age, sex, number of sexual partners, and number of cigarettes smoked per day. The effect of multifactorial risk assessment and screening for risk factors on oral cancer morbidity and mortality is unknown.. ...
The passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2010 marked a profound shift away from reactive care and toward a system focused on prevention, including a new provision that ensures preventive health services will be covered with no out-of-pocket costs.

A new federal report, Enhancing Use of Clinical Preventive Services Among Older Adults: Closing the Gap, calls attention to the critical gaps that exist between older Americans, particularly minorities, who receive potentially lifesaving preventive services and those who do not. Clinical prevention services examined in the report include vaccinations that protect against influenza and pneumococcal disease; screenings for the early detection of breast cancer, colorectal cancer, diabetes, lipid disorders, and osteoporosis; and smoking cessation counseling. It also addresses the use of preventive services by diverse populations. About 49% of Asian/Pacific Islanders and 47% percent of Hispanics reported not being screened for colorectal cancer, compared with 34% of whites. More than 50% of Hispanics, 47% of blacks and Asian/Pacific Islanders, and 36% of whites report never receiving a pneumococcal vaccination.. The report, which was published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) ...

The effectiveness of nutritional supplements in preventing certain diseases and disorders from developing is still being researched today, so any claims or miracle statements that guarantee the prevention of certain diseases is generally considered fraudulent. Certain vitamins, however, do contain antioxidants that protect the body from free radical damage, making them potent and therefore legitimate preventive health nutritional supplements.. 1. Antioxidant preventive health nutritional supplements. Antioxidant preventive health nutritional supplements include vitamins C, E, and beta-carotene- a compound of vitamin A. Mineral antioxidants include zinc, selenium, and manganese. While it is likely improbable to rid the body from all free radicals, together, these vitamins and minerals help defend the body from oxidative stressors, working to increase the immune system.. 2. How preventive health nutritional supplements work. Preventive health nutritional supplements can be packaged and sold as a ...
An insurers failure to maintain and disclose a network of lactation support providers did not violate the Affordable Care Act (ACA) preventive health services mandate or ERISAs fiduciary duty requirements, the Eighth Circuit has ruled. The ACA mandates that group health plans and insurers provide coverage without cost-sharing for certain types of in-network preventive health services, including comprehensive lactation support services (see our Checkpoint article). The group health plan participants in this case brought a putative class action lawsuit against their insurer after it covered their claims for in-network lactation support services but denied claims for services they received from out-of-network providers. The participants described scheduling and availability issues with in-network providers and difficulties identifying alternate in-network lactation consultants via the insurers online provider list (which they said did not use lactation or similar terms) or customer service ...
Importance: Approximately 1.1 million persons in the United States are currently living with HIV, and more than 700000 persons have died of AIDS since the first cases were reported in 1981. There were approximately 38300 new diagnoses of HIV infection in 2017. The estimated prevalence of HIV infection among persons 13 years and older in the United States is 0.4%, and data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show a significant increase in HIV diagnoses starting at age 15 years. An estimated 8700 women living with HIV give birth each year in the United States. HIV can be transmitted from mother to child during pregnancy, labor, delivery, and breastfeeding. The incidence of perinatal HIV infection in the United States peaked in 1992 and has declined significantly following the implementation of routine prenatal HIV screening and the use of effective therapies and precautions to prevent mother-to-child transmission. Objective: To update the 2013 US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF)

A US expert panel (the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, USPSTF) has recommended that it is cost-effective to screen overweight and obese adults between the ages of 40 and 70 years for abnormal glucose levels. The USPSTF is an independent, volunteer panel of national experts in prevention and evidence-based medicine. The Task Force works to improve health through the application of evidence-based medicine, including clinical preventive services such as screenings, counseling and preventive medication. The recommendation, announced at the New Orelans conference of the Amercian Diabetes Association may have significant policy implications including in the field of re-imbursement and insurance. According to Dr. Thomas J Hoerger, PhD, Senior Fellow in health economics and financing at RTI International, a non-profit research institute in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, the recommendation is important because under the Affordable Care Act, any preventive service that gets a grade A or B ...
Evaluating the incremental benefits of preventive care requires longer period of time when compared to acute ill patients. Inputs into the model such as, discounting rate and time horizon can have significant effects of the results. One controversial subject is use of 10-year time frame to assess cost effectiveness of diabetes preventive services by the Congressional Budget Office.[110]. The preventive care services mainly focuses on chronic disease,[111] the Congressional Budget Office has provided guidance that further research in the area of the economic impacts of obesity in the US before the CBO can estimate budgetary consequences. A bipartisan report published in May 2015, recognizes that the potential of the preventive care to improve patients health at individual and population levels while decreasing the healthcare expenditure.[112]. An Economic Case for Preventive Health Mortality from Modifiable Risk Factors Chronic diseases such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, obesity and cancer ...
Getting the best health care means making smart decisions about preventive services. Preventive services, such as screening tests, counseling services, and preventive medicines, are tests or treatments that your doctor or others provide to prevent illnesses before they cause you symptoms or problems. To help doctors and patients decide together whether a preventive service is right for a persons needs, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force develops recommendations based on a review of high-quality scientific evidence, and publishes its recommendations on its Web site and/or in a peer-reviewed journal.. The goal of these recommendations is not only to offer guidance to doctors, nurses and other primary care professionals, but to provide patients and their families with the most accurate and up-to-date information on ways to prevent illness and improve health and well-being. On this page you will find easy-to-understand information on the Task Force and on health topics for which the Task Force ...

The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF), under the leadership of Alex H. Krist, M.D., a professor in the Department of Family Medicine and Population Health, has affirmed that, while clinical preventive services improve health and wellbeing, systemic racism in the health care system prevents many Black, Indigenous and Hispanic/Latino people from fully benefitting from these services.. In an editorial published last week in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), the USPSTF outlined the first critical steps it needs to take to address systemic racism and help eliminate health inequities.. After reviewing the evidence, the USPSTF found recurring examples of inequities in preventable causes of disease and death, said Krist, who has served as a USPSTF member since 2015 and was appointed its chair in 2020. Ensuring health equity may be the single most important thing for us to do to improve the health of our nation. The roadmap we developed is a crucial step forward to ...

The Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care is an independent panel of volunteer clinicians and methodologists that makes recommendations about clinical manoeuvres aimed at primary and secondary prevention ( The development of these recommendations was led by a workgroup of eight members of the task force and scientific staff at the Public Health Agency of Canada. The task force established this topic as a priority based on the potential to decrease inconsistencies in screening in primary care practice and a need to determine whether benefits of screening outweigh harms.. The US Preventive Services Task Force recently published a systematic review on screening and treatment for cognitive impairment.11 Initially, the Canadian task force updated the US task force review, assessing the effects of screening for cognitive impairment on health outcomes.9 The Evidence Review and Synthesis Centre at McMaster University independently conducted the systematic review ...
Background In 2009, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommended that the decision to start regular screening mammography (SC. MMG) before the age of 50 years should be an individual one and take patient context into account, including the patients values regarding specific benefits and harms (1, 2). As a metric, they calculated the number needed to invite (NNI) to screening to prevent 1 death from breast cancer by a meta-analysis of several trials previously published (3). They concluded that the net benefit is smaller for women aged 40 to 49 years with a larger NNI compared to the value for women aged 50-59. However, they did not consider different follow-up periods when comparing NNI by age group. For women aged 40 to 49 years, the average follow-up varied from 10.7 to 16.8 years in 8 trials included in the meta-analysis, while follow-up varied from 12.9 to 18.1 years for women aged 50-59 years in 5 trials and from 14.3 to 15.5 years for women aged 60-69 years in 2 trials. ...

Moments later an impressively detailed diagnostic dashboard is sent to your smartphone. It rates from low to medium to high your susceptibility to a long list of diseases. If there is a problem, it urges you to seek professional medical help.. Right now, it can search for 30 diseases. More machine learning will soon boost that number to 50, and eventually, it could go beyond 200.. Zhang regards his system as a gamechanger because of its potential to deliver at scale and relieve stretched medical resources. To date, it has scanned more than 1.12 million people, mostly in China, but also in the United States, India, Britain, and parts of Africa. Airdoc users are all over the world. We hope our deep learning technology can prevent all kinds of disease.. China, with a population of 1.3 billion, only has about 1,100 eye doctors who are qualified to analyze retinal images.

What Preventive Services Does the Affordable Care Act Cover? - Preventive services have more coverage in the Affordable Care Act. See what preventive services are included in the Affordable Care Act.
(HealthDay) -- Prior to the passage of the Affordable Care Act in 2010, only about half of U.S. adults received preventive health services such as screenings, consultations and prescriptions, government researchers report.
Background: In industrialized countries, assessment of the causal effect of physician supply on population health has yielded mixed results. Since the scope of child vaccination is an indicator of preventive health service utilization, this study investigates the correlation between vaccination coverage and pediatrician supply as a reflection of overall pediatric health during a time of increasing pediatrician numbers in Japan. Methods: Cross-sectional data were collected from publicly available sources for 2010. Dependent variables were vaccination coverage for measles and diphtheria, pertussis, and tetanus (DPT) by region. The primary predictor of interest was number of pediatricians per 10 000-child population (pediatrician density) at the municipality level. Multivariate logistic regression models were used to estimate associations of interest, conditional on a large range of demographic and infrastructure-related factors as covariates, including non-pediatric physician density, total ...

Despite advances in asthma therapies and the wide-spread dissemination of asthma clinical guidelines, low-income, minority children have disproportionately high morbidity and mortality from asthma. The National Center for Children in Poverty has strongly argued that effective interventions to improve asthma health disparities and reduce harm must begin in early childhood. Previous efficacy studies have suggested that asthma education programs can be effective in improving overall management of asthma for preschool children. However, for these promising asthma intervention strategies to have sustainable public health impact for low-income, minority children they must be integrated within those medical, educational and social structures that serve these young high risk children, such as community clinics, schools and day care programs. Because one of the core missions of federally-funded Head Start programs is to provide preventive health services and screening to their low-income preschool ...

Research over the last two decades has consistently confirmed that providing education and support services to parents around the time of a babys birth, and continuing for months or years afterwards, significantly reduces the risk of child maltreatment and contributes to positive, healthy child rearing practices. Families receiving this type of intensive home visitor service also show other positive changes such as consistent use of preventive health services, increased high school completion rates for teen parents, higher employment rates, lower welfare use and fewer pregnancies.. Healthy Families Indiana provides screening and assessment of families in targeted areas throughout the state. Service entry points include WIC Programs, health clinics and local hospital. Parents are screened using a validated, standardized instrument, the Maternal Record Screen.

Downloadable! Rotating Savings and Credit Associations (ROSCAs) are a common informal saving method recognized as a social protection system that can be used to deal with the monetary consequences of different types of economic shocks. This paper tests the hypothesis that current participation in ROSCAs will be encouraged when funds saved during previous membership in such associations were useful for financing extraordinary as well as unexpected expenses related to health needs. The probit model estimation supports this hypothesis and also suggests that savings from ROSCAs used for preventive health services encourage further participation.
