WILLEMSTAD - The Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) in its recent epidemiological alert, calls on Member States to increase vigilance and establish/maintain the capacity to detect and confirm cases of Zika virus infection.. The Zika virus infection is spread via the vector Aedes mosquito which is also prevalent in the Caribbean and Curaçao.. The Department of Public Health (GGD), a department in the Ministry of Public Health, Social Development and Labor, is calling on the population to give the elimination of mosquito breeding grounds their urgent attention especially after the heavy rainfall in order to prevent the spread of mosquito-borne diseases such as Zika.. Zika virus is a member of the Flaviviridae family and is transmitted to humans by mosquitoes. It is related to other pathogenic vector borne flaviviruses including dengue, West-Nile and Japanese encephalitis viruses but produces a comparatively mild disease in humans.. Since 2014, indigenous circulation of Zika has been detected ...
Zika virus was recognised in 2016 as an important vector-borne cause of congenital malformations and Guillain-Barré syndrome, during a major epidemic in Latin America, centred in Northeastern Brazil. The WHO and Pan American Health Organisation (PAHO), with partner agencies, initiated a coordinated global response including public health intervention and urgent scientific research, as well as ethical analysis as a vital element of policy design. In this paper, we summarise the major ethical issues raised during the Zika epidemic, highlighting the PAHO ethics guidance and the role of ethics in emergency responses, before turning to ethical issues that are yet to be resolved ...

Dave Locke was not able to make the call so Ian covered C and Java Clients: - Ian and Dave are working minor bugs and suggestions. Please use the Paho Dev forum or Bugzilla to discuss these. - We discussed feedback that current committers and others at IBM, Eurotech and others familiar with MQTT design/usage need to try and get more involved in community. Nick OLeary, who has been engaged in the Eclipse and MQTT.org forums was on the call and made some comments later on in the call. - A Paho near term goal is to get up binary files in the Repository. - Ian is looking into the availability of code to test MQTT Client installations and ports. Feedback, participation and new contributions are welcome. It was suggested that a protocol level compatibility test suite for MQTT and its design points needs to be a Paho plan item. - Another item Ian is considering for Paho is an MQTT tracing program to monitor the interactions between the client and the server. - Andy Piper mentioned that the original ...
Though "whooping cough" may seem like an antiquated affliction, an estimated 50 million cases and 300,000 deaths still occur every year. Pertussis, as the disease is formally known, is a highly contagious disease marked by an intense cough that can last up to twelve weeks, and is regarded as a major cause of childhood morbidity and mortality in developing countries.. Sabin, in partnership with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), is working to assess and strengthen the laboratory capacity for diagnosis of pertussis in three countries; Argentina, Panama and Mexico. Currently, pertussis surveillance in most Latin American countries is based on outdated methods and materials, and an improvement in these techniques is key to guiding prevention and control strategies. The goal is to better understand the spread and impact of pertussis, in order to protect populations from this vaccine-preventable disease.. The project also provides ...
In January 2007, Sabin joined forces with the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Harvard School of Public Health and the Institut Catala dOncologia (Barcelona, Spain) to conduct a comprehensive study of HPV epidemiological data in Latin America, in an attempt to address this alarming global health concern. This study, the first major assessment of HPV impact in the region, showed that the virus is far more common than anyone expected. It also effectively demonstrated that routine screening, along with vaccination, is the most promising way to tackle this disease. Differences in resources and available screening programs exist, making it difficult for each country to decide whether vaccination is affordable, even if it may be cost-effective. If these challenges could be addressed, researchers concluded that half a million cervical cancer deaths could be prevented over 10 years with the introduction of an HPV vaccine in the ...
The Ministry of Health, in collaboration with the Ministry of Labour and Social Security, is hosting a two-day National Workshop on Workers Health..

Bringing remarks at the opening, Pan American Health Organization/World Health Organization (PAHO/WHO) Country Representative for Jamaica, Dr. Noreen Jack, said the discussions will be useful in getting recommendations for action in the workplace.. "We expect to leave this meeting after reaching important consensus related to the design and implementation of the action plan, and (this) should allow us to address the social, environmental and economic determinants of workers health, close the gaps of inequalities they cause and boost prevention and control of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) at the workplace," she said.. Minister of Labour and Social Security, ...

Every two seconds, somewhere in the world, a child dies before reaching its fifth birthday. Two probably died while you were reading that sentence.. An estimated 15 million children under 5 die each year, but world health authorities are zeroing in on another number, smaller but still huge. For them, the number 3.5 million is a symbol of both horror and hope.. That is how many children under age 5 die every year of diseases that are preventable by vaccines. Another 4 million to 5 million children die of fluid loss from diarrhea.. "The numbers are staggering," said Dr. Ralph H. Henderson, director of the World Health Organizations program on immunization. "Thats a childs death every time you take a breath.". Henderson and several dozen other doctors and health ministers from around the world spoke last week at the International Vaccine Symposium, a two-day conference of world health leaders at the Pan American Health Organization in Washington..

The data refer to 3,477 elderly people, 67.7% of whom were women (n=2,353). Among men, age varied between 65 and 97 years and average age was 73.3 years, while among women age varied between 65 and 101 years and average age was 72.8 years. Average BMI among men was 26.2kg/m2(95%CI 26.0; 26.5), while among women it was 27.4kg/m2(95%CI 27.2; 27.6). In relation to proportion of overweight, significant difference was found between the sexes: the proportions among women were 51.4%, 42.9% and 67.7%, while among men they were 40.0%, 31.0% and 60.3%, according to the NSI, PAHO and WHO criteria, respectively (p,0.001).. The COPs obtained for WC, using the WHO, NSI and PAHO criteria, were equal to 86.5cm, 88.7cm and 91.5cm for women, and equal to 93.0cm, 96.0cm and 97.5cm for men. For both sexes, the NSI criterion resulted in higher score estimates for sensitivity, corresponding to a COP of 88.7cm for women and 96.0cm for men ( Table 1 ), with no statistically significant difference and overlapping ...

An intensive and selective survey to review the current status of medical mycology in Latin America was carried out from 19 October to 19 November 1969. The countries visited were Venezuela, Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, and Mexico. Centers of competence in every phase of medical mycology were found to exist in these countries, but virtually all are one-man operations. An International Symposium on the Mycoses, sponsored by Pan American Health Organization was held in Washington, D.C., on 24-26 February 1970 and attended by over 60 investigators from the Americas and Europe. As a result of the Symposium and recommendations of the PAHO Advisory Committee on Medical Research, a permanent Coordinating Committee for the Mycoses has been appointed by PAHO to help strengthen resources in the Western Hemisphere so as to provide service, training, and research in this field. Parasitic infections have long been recognized as very important causes of morbidity and death in Latin America and the Caribbean area. As
URGENT steps must be taken to deal effectively with communicable diseases if this countrys development, particularly in the eco-tourism sector, is to gain momentum.

The program has transformed and revolutionized our health system, especially for the most vulnerable, Health Minister Ariana Campero told teleSUR.. The Pan American Health Organization, or PAHO, has praised the program for bringing medical care to some of Bolivias must rural communities. The My Health project is on the right path to ensure that people have access to services everywhere in Bolivia said Carissa Etienne, a Director at PAHO.. One of the main achievements of the program has been the sharp reduction in the number of maternal deaths. Doctors say more than half of the conditions and treatments are diagnosed in the patients own homes during routine check ups and and the rest in medical centers across 306 different municipalities.. The most important part of the program is our house to house visits in the most rural parts of the country says Ariana Campero. The Health Minister says doctors and mobile clinics are now present in 25 indigenous communites in Bolivia. Before ...
