Mumps and mumps vaccine: a global review. (1/3145)

Mumps is an acute infectious disease caused by a paramyxovirus. Although the disease is usually mild, up to 10% of patients can develop aseptic meningitis; a less common but more serious complication is encephalitis, which can result in death or disability. Permanent deafness, orchitis, and pancreatitis are other untoward effects of mumps. Based on data reported to WHO up to April 1998, mumps vaccine is routinely used by national immunization programmes in 82 countries/areas: 23 (92%) of 25 developed countries, 19 (86%) of 22 countries with economies in transition (mainly the Newly Independent States of the former Soviet Union), and 40 (24%) of 168 developing countries. Countries that have achieved high coverage have shown a rapid decline in mumps morbidity. Furthermore, in many of these countries, mumps-associated encephalitis and deafness have nearly vanished. This review considers the disease burden due to mumps; summarizes studies on the immunogenicity, efficacy, and safety of different strains of mumps vaccine; and highlights lessons learned about implementing mumps immunization in different countries. Countries already using mumps vaccine should monitor immunization coverage and establish routine mumps surveillance with investigation of outbreaks. Where mumps is targeted for elimination, countries need to add a second dose of mumps vaccine for children, keeping in mind that the disease may still occur in susceptible adults.  (+info)

Eradication: lessons from the past. (2/3145)

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

The principles of disease elimination and eradication. (3/3145)

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

Disease eradication and health systems development. (4/3145)

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

Perspectives from micronutrient malnutrition elimination/eradication programmes. (5/3145)

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.

Perspectives from the dracunculiasis eradication programme. (6/3145)

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)

Perspectives from the global poliomyelitis eradication initiative. (7/3145)

Ten years after the year 2000 target was set by the World Health Assembly, the global poliomyelitis eradication effort has made significant progress towards that goal. The success of the initiative is built on political commitment within the endemic countries. A partnership of international organizations and donor countries works to support the work of the countries. Interagency coordinating committees are used to ensure that all country needs are met and to avoid duplication of donor effort. Private sector support has greatly expanded the resources available at both the national and international level. At the programmatic level, rapid implementation of surveillance is the key to success, but the difficulty of building effective surveillance programmes is often underestimated. Mass immunization campaigns must be carefully planned with resources mobilized well in advance. Programme strategies should be simple, clear and concise. While improvements in strategy and technology should be continuously sought, changes should be introduced only after careful consideration. Careful consideration should be given in the planning phases of a disease control initiative on how the initiative can be used to support other health initiatives.  (+info)

Candidate noninfectious disease conditions. (8/3145)

Important micronutrient deficiencies in at-risk populations can be addressed simultaneously with programmatically cost-effective results. Because of the interaction between many micronutrients, this would also be biologically effective. With adequate investment and political support, the chances of eliminating iodine deficiency as a problem in women of reproductive age and young children and of eliminating vitamin A deficiency as a problem in young children in the future are high. To eliminate iron deficiency and folic-acid-dependent neural tube defects (FADNTDs) in low-income populations, a new set of approaches will have to be developed. These same approaches, if successful, could be used to tackle other important micronutrient deficiencies.  (+info)

The U.S. Department of Defense and Global Health: It is the oldest agency in the United States, has a reach that extends effectively to all countries, is involved in health service delivery and health research, but is not budgeted as a global health agency, nor is global health considered its mission. All the same, the role of the Department of Defense is changing, with emphasis on preserving peace by supporting and strengthening infrastructures and addressing issues that threaten stability. With that in mind, this Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation report analyzes the history, activities, budget and priorities of the department to clarify the current role, objectives and potential of its global health activities. Consolidated oversight of these activities could help decision makers to better understand the impact of the departments role, and of changes, the report suggests.. What has the US Global Health Initiative achieved: Maybe because global health advocates wanted to give the initiative ...
There is evidence that STIs may enhance both the transmission and acquisition of HIV infection, and that improved control of STIs may slow down HIV transmission.3 The prevention and control of STIs is not an easy task. Epidemiological patterns of STIs vary geographically and are influenced by cultural, political, economical and social forces. Many affected by STIs are in marginalised vulnerable groups. The asymptomatic nature of some STIs remains a challenge to healthcare providers in areas of the world where laboratory screening tests are unaffordable.. The World Health Organizations Global Strategy for the prevention and control of sexually transmitted infections: 2006-2015 was presented to Member States at the 59th World Health Assembly in May 2006.

NIH should capitalize on the current supportive environment for global health science, its director Dr. Francis S. Collins recently urged members of the newly created Trans-NIH Global Health Research Working Group. Our country is poised to move from the hard power stance to soft power or, as Hillary Clinton said, smart power. Shouldnt we at NIH be leading that charge? he asked.. The high-level working group is the result of a two-year effort by institute and center directors to analyze global health research activities at NIH and explore better ways to coordinate efforts, both across NIH and throughout the government. The Obama administration has pledged $63 billion to its Global Health Initiative and is seeking input on its approach.. If we dont step forward and point out the value of research, the focus is likely to be increasingly on delivery, which of course is critical, Collins noted. But we need the research aspect of this to be vigorously supported.. The genesis of the working ...

View more ,The Emergence of the Failed State: Tales of Globalisation and the Demise of the Nation State The failed state emerged more than two decades ago in the wake of globalisation, concomitantly with its widely assumed implication that the nation state as we had known it would soon become obsolete. If indeed globalisation and the massive social and economic changes that it would entail emerged as an irresistible force that limited the realm of national politics and governments, and the impact of citizens on their national polity, why then should the failure of one or more states be anything but what could be expected when globalisation finally took hold? When taking the hyperglobalisers perspective seriously, according to Held and his colleagues (Held, McGrew, Goldblatt and Perraton 2006), failed states appear to be the vanguard of globalisation rather than a major threat to the security of the global economy, and to the process of globalisation itself (Esty et al. 1995; Esty et al. ...

IIUniversity of the Mediterranean, INSERM/IRD Research Unit 912 SE4S, Marseille, France. According to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, the health sector has become a major recipient of development assistance from just over US$6 billion in 1999 to US$ 13.4 billion in 2005.1 The bulk of this increase can be credited to disease-targeted programmes and new global health partnerships, such as the GAVI Alliance (formerly the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization) and the Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. By August 2008, the Global Fund had approved grant agreements worth over US$11 billion with 136 countries, becoming the most important single agency for health assistance in terms of numbers of country partners and diversity of recipients..

Introduction. The estimates from the World Health Organization (WHO) indicate that chronic noncommunicable diseases (CNCD) already account for 58.5% of all deaths worldwide and 45% of all global disease burden1. In Brazil CNCD account for 62.8% of all deaths by known causes2. Historical series of mortality statistics available for Brazilian state capitals indicate that the proportion of CNCD deaths has more than tripled between the 1930s and the 1990s3.. Global estimates show that a small set of risk factors accounts for the great majority of CNCD deaths and for quite a large proportion of CNCD disease burden. These factors include tobacco use, alcohol abuse, obesity, excess consumption of saturated fat (causing dyslipidemia), inadequate fruit and vegetable intake, and physical inactivity1. Studies have pointed out that the most effective mechanisms for reducing peoples vulnerability to these new epidemics are those that promote healthy lives, acting for disease prevention and health ...
This comparative study of the political economies of East and South Asia and Africa offers new analytical and policy insights into the links between globalization and information and communication technology (ICT)..

As the process of economic globalisation has unfolded since the 1960s, international trade and capital flows have grown tremendously (Hay, 2014). While perhaps not unprecedented, this growth has led some to argue that the sovereignty of the nation-state is under dire threat. At a campaign rally in April of 2016, then U.S. Presidential-nominee Donald J. Trump affirmed such a notion, stating that the nation-state remains the true foundation of happiness and harmony, and vowing to no longer surrender [the U.S.] to the false song of globalism (Hattem, 2016). This paper engages with the globalisation President Trump refers to as the expansion of social connections, wherein any person, irrespective of their spatial location (and therefore often transcendent of their territorial geography) has an expanded ability to engage with any other person in the world (Scholte, 2007).. Economic globalisation, which is the re-spatialisation of human connection as it relates to economic activity from the local ...
Introduction. EO314 Issues in International Economics How the process of Globalisation might have affected the position of labour in industrialized and developing countries. Submitted to Frank Brouwer London Metropolitan University December 2nd, 2004 By Iolanta Lyebyedyeva ID: 02019931 This essay aims to explain the question how the process of globalisation might have affected the position of labour in industrialised and developing countries with the focus on effects of trade on skilled and low/unskilled workers, especially how on how trade affects employment and wages, in developed and developing countries. As a starting point, it might be useful to look at what is actually meant by Globalisation, because many people definitely know whether they are for or against it, without even considering what exactly it is. There are hundreds of definitions of globalisations. Following a British sociologist Martin Albrow (1990) globalisation refers to all those processes by which the peoples of the world ...

Press Release - The World Health Assembly has asked the World Health Organization to develop an implementation roadmap for 2023-2030 in support of the prevention and control of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs).
This study is among the first systematic attempts to estimate the prevalence of COPD across the world regions using spirometry-based data. The estimates presented here are based on the age range starting from 30 years, while many of the previous reviews were based on people aged 40 years or older. An appreciable prevalence of COPD has been reported in younger population groups, adding to uncertainties over the current epidemiological situation globally.. In the current study, we estimated a global prevalence of 10.7% (7.3%-14.0%) in 1990 and 11.7% (8.4%-15.0%) in 2010, corresponding to 227 and 384 million of affected cases in 1990 and 2010, respectively. This estimate is an order of magnitude higher than the one presented in the 2001 World Health Report, estimating a world-wide prevalence of COPD of 10.1 per 1000 population (12.1 per 1000 men and 8.1 per 1000 women) [157].

Objective To assess the value of self-rated health assessments by examining the association between education and self-rated poor health. Methods We used the globally representative population-based sample from the 2002 World Health Survey, composed of 219 713 men and women aged 25 and over in 69 countries, to examine the association between education and self-rated poor health. In a binary regression model with a logit link function, we used self-rated poor health as the binary dependent variable, and age, sex and education as the independent variables. Findings Globally, there was an inverse association between years of schooling and self-rated poor health (odds ratio, OR: 0.929; 95% confidence interval, CI: 0.926-0.933). Compared with the individuals in the highest quintile of years of schooling, those in the lowest quintile were twice as likely to report poor health (OR: 2.292; 95% CI: 2.165-2.426). We found a dose-response relationship between quintiles of years of schooling and the ORs for ...
