Context: There is a large and complex body of literature on the effect of various risk factors on health and mortality. This meta-analysis structures and summarizes the knowledge contained in this literature. Objective: We calculate the average effect-sizes of 55 empirical studies on the impact of sex, obesity and smoking on four different transitions between the statuses of notdisabled, disabled and death. We assess which risk factors and transitions are studied most and whether the impact of theses risk factors differs between the transitions. Data Source: Expert recommendations, the electronic databases Medline, PsycINFO and SOCA (Sociological Abstracts) and the references in the articles. Study Selection: The search is confined to the years 1985-2005 and produced a total of 8016 articles. Finally, 55 articles were included in the detailed analysis, selected by two independent researchers according to the study population, a longitudinal design of at least one year, risk factors, the ...

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 ...
The MOS-HIV scale is a 35-item measure of health related quality of life (QOL) questionnaire which assesses 10 dimensions of health (general health perceptions, pain, physical functioning, role functioning, social functioning, mental health, energy/fatifue, cognitive function, health distress and QOL), as well as a single item to assess health transition. In addition to these subscales, a Physical Health Summary score (PHS) and a Mental Health Summary score (MHS) is calculated using a method where the summary scores are transformed to a standardized scale with a norm of 50 and a standard deviation of 10 in the sample in which the summary scores were developed. The subscales of the MOS-HIV are scored as summed rating scales ranging from a minimum of 0, to a maximum of 100, where higher scores indicate better health ...

Business executive Roger Vang wanted to know what federal plans might affect his companys health insurance plan so he checked President-elect Barack Obamas website.. I wanted to see if Obama had any major changes coming, said Vang, chief financial officer of Diversified Plastics in Brooklyn Park. They had a button to click for information on health care, so I foolishly did.. The button led Vang to a discussion guide for a grass-roots forum to help modernize the nations health care system. It invited him or anyone else to host a local forum. So he did. The forum and others in Minneapolis and St. Paul were among thousands held across the nation last month in response to Obamas health transition teams request on his Change.gov website. The website outlines health care problems and provides discussion questions. Moderators are asked to e-mail feedback and suggestions from the public meetings to the team, led by Health and Human Services Secretary-designate Tom Daschle.. Daschle attended ...

The chronic nature of inflammatory bowel disease leads to considerable impairment on the health related quality of life (HRQOL). The aims of the present study are to validate the mainland Chinese translation of the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Questionnaire (MCIBDQ), and to evaluate the impact of infliximab treatment on HRQOL in patients with IBD for the first time in China, as compared with other therapies of different levels. Furthermore, the impact of different medical therapies on marriage, employment and economic burden in IBD patients were also evaluated. Consecutive patients who met inclusion/exclusion criteria were investigated with MCIBDQ, SF-36, disease activity index (DAI), marriage, employment and economic burden questionnaires before and after treatment. MCIBDQ showed significant reliability and validity both in CD and UC patients. The scores of total SF-36, total MCIBDQ and all domains were found significantly increased, while both DAI and health transition on general health scores were

Downloadable! In this study, the linear approximate version of the Almost Ideal Demand System (AIDS) model is estimated using data from the Lithuanian household budget survey covering the period from July 1992 to December 1994. Based on the estimated coefficients of the model, Hossain and Jensen estimated price and real expenditure elasticities for 12 food groups. Estimated expenditure elasticities were positive and statistically significant for all food groups while all own-price elasticities were negative and statistically significant, except for that of eggs which was insignificant. Results suggest that Lithuanian household consumption responded to price and real income changes during the transition to a market-oriented economy.

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 ...
Nutrition has long been recognised as a vitally important determinant of health status within both industrialised and industrialising countries. Significant changes are occurring in the profile of nutritional problems. Many countries continue to face problems of malnutrition and micronutrient deficiencies, but countries in economic transition also face the public health challenge of rising rates of diet-related chronic disease, such as obesity and coronary heart disease. Also, many industrialised countries now face problems of food insecurity among low-income groups. These challenges have led to growing political resources to address nutrition.. There is now an increased need for trained public health nutritionists, to work in a range of contexts, to control and prevent diet-related problems. The United Nations Secretary General has declared 2016-2025 the Decade of Nutrition. What better time to develop your skills in this crucial area?. This course will give you the specialist scientific ...
This book examines the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the social and economic context of poverty and economic crisis in developing and transition countries. It challenges the assumption - implicit in AIDS policy - that differences in sexual behavior are adequate to explain differences in HIV prevalence between populations. Using an epidemiological approach, the book shows how people who are malnourished, burdened with parasites and infectious diseases, and who lack access to medical care are more vulnerable to all diseases. It explains the specific mechanisms by which undernutrition, micronutrient deficiency, malaria, soil-transmitted helminths, schistosomiasis, and other parasitic illnesses increase the risk of HIV transmission and epidemic spread of HIV/AIDS in poor populations. A theme throughout the book is that the sexual transmission of HIV diverts attention from the social and economic context of profound poverty. The distraction of sex is compounded by Western stereotypes of African sexuality, perpetuated

Ive been struggling with how to handle Health Affairs new study Measuring the Health of Nations. Its the sort of report whose conclusions are easy to summarize but whose import is hard to accurately convey. The short version is that our health system is killing people. And not just a couple. Hundreds of thousands. The researchers examined amenable mortality -- deaths from certain causes that should not occur in the presence of timely and effective health care -- in a variety of OECD countries. In English, it assessed how effective health systems are at reaching the sick. The conditions under examination are lethal if not treated, but the afflicted can be saved, and even healed, if given timely care. The researchers examined this same group of conditions in 1998. Then, we performed poorly, but not catastrophically so. Our amenable mortality rates were about 8 percent above the average, and 50 percent above the French, but we were not the worst. Comparatively speaking, we were 15th out of ...
This is a 1.5-day workshop that will explore the growing understanding of how microbes interact with and affect humans in multiple ways, ranging from affecting normal physiological functions to chronic diseases. The workshop will allow participants to gain a deeper understanding of how the distinction between infectious diseases and noncommunicable diseases is blurring and how this is extending to new approaches, such as the use of vaccination to treat certain cancers.
Urgent government action is needed to meet global targets to reduce the burden of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs), and prevent the annual toll of 16 million people dying prematurely - before the age of 70 - from heart and lung diseases, stroke, cancer and diabetes, according to a new WHO report.

Recent societal and political reforms in Myanmar may upturn the socio-economy and, thus, contribute to the countrys health transition. Baseline data on urban-rural disparities in non-communicable disease (NCD) risk factors are not thoroughly described in this country which has been relatively closed for more than five decades. We aim to investigate urban-rural differences in mean values and the prevalence of selected behavioral and metabolic risk factors for non-communicable diseases and 10-years risk in development of coronary heart diseases (CHD). Two cross-sectional studies were conducted in urban and rural areas of Yangon Region in 2013 and 2014 respectively, using the WHO STEPwise approach to surveillance of risk factors of NCDs. Through a multi-stage cluster sampling method, 1486 participants were recruited. Age-standardized prevalence of the behavioral risk factors tended to be higher in the rural than urban areas for all included factors and significantly higher for alcohol drinking (19.9% vs.
Non-communicable disease (NCD) epidemics are emerging or accelerating in most developed countries, and cardiovascular diseases (CVD), cancers, diabetes and chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases are becoming major contributors to the burden of disease.1 India too illustrates the phenomenon of health transition , which positions NCDs as a major public health challenge of growing magnitude in the 21st century. In 1990, India accounted for 19% of all deaths, 16% of all NCD deaths and 17% of all CVD deaths in the world. In India alone CVDs accounted for around 2.4 million deaths, in contrast to nearly 3.2 million deaths in all industrialized countries put together.1 In recent times, life expectancy has increased with several undesirable alterations in lifestyle. Hence, there is an increase in both the dose and duration of risk factors, leading to an increase in lifestyle diseases and their consequences.. The incidence of CVDs is greater in urban areas than in rural areas, reflecting the acquisition ...

During the past two decades Taiwan has undergone critical stages of economic transition and become a newly industrialised country. This study shows that, contrary to the weak relation of income inequality to mortality in 1976, counties and cities with more equal income distribution in 1995 were more likely, with the adjustment of median household disposable income, to have a lower mortality (table 3). Especially, in 1995 the effect of income distribution on mortality in children aged under 5 became highly significant and the effect of median household disposable income became non-significant. Therefore, the Taiwan case examined here supports Wilkinsons proposition that relative income is more important than absolute income in determining population health in developed countries.12. In attempting, however, to generalise from this study it should be noted that Taiwans success in economic development is unique. Firstly, Taiwan has achieved economic transition in a very short period. Secondly, it ...
Downloadable! In this paper we investigate the real interest parity condition in ten Eastern European transition countries during 1997-2009 period. Our sample is interesting for three reasons: It covers the second stage of economic transition in the aftermath of the collapse of socialism; the establishment of Euroland at the turn of the century: and enlargement of Euroland to include the Eastern European countries of Slovenia and Slovakia. The data enables us to investigate how the introduction of market mechanisms in the early nineties and the establishment and enlargement of Euroland acted on real interest rate convergence. We test the real interest parity condition with unit root test with and without structural breaks. Inflationary expectations are estimated in two ways: (i) under assumption of rational expectations with ex-post inflation rates and (ii) with ex-ante estimated inflation expectation using ARIMA/ARCH model. Preliminary results suggest that there is a strong evidence of stationarity and

The economy is divided into four different types, i.e., the market economy, traditional economy, command economy, and mixed economy. All these types have different weaknesses and strengths. The type of economy that is controlled by the private owner is known as a free-market economy; on the other hand, the type of economy that is controlled by the government is known as the command economy. Both these types of economies play their role just like general economic players such as producers and consumers, money and labor and goods and services, etc. Their goal is to deliver goods and services demanded by the citizens. In a free-market economy, several individuals made a decision such as sellers, buyers, and intermediaries, etc. on the flip side, in command economy decision is made by the authorized government. ...
Contrary to Mises, Murray Rothbard held that increases in the supply of gold could not set in motion the boom-bust cycle. For him the key reason behind boom-bust cycles is the loose monetary policy of the central bank, which sets in motion the expansion of the money supply out of thin air. (The channels for the increase in the money supply out of thin air are the fractional reserve banking and direct monetary pumping by the central bank).. For Rothbard only increases in the money supply out of thin air is regarded as inflation. (Rothbard viewed inflation i.e. the expansion in money out of thin air as an act of embezzlement and a violation of individuals property rights). For Rothbard, the business cycle cannot emerge in a free market economy where money is gold and there are no central banks. According to Rothbard, In MES, p. 990, note 106[1].. Inflation, in this work, is explicitly defined to exclude increases in the stock of specie. While these increases have such similar effects as ...

What fuels the rapid shift in the stage of the nutrition transition? Critical elements include urbanization, internationalization (globalization) of food production and marketing, expansion of mass media and communications, and changes in the work market with predominance of low-energy output labor. Almost 90% of the projected world population growth over the next 20 years will take place in the developing world. Even more striking is the fact that almost all this growth will occur in urban areas. Thus, todays developing world, still largely defined by the rural poor, will change dramatically in the next two decades, with the progressive dominance of an urban population. Urban dwelling is associated with an array of behaviors and lifestyles that are associated with higher levels of obesity and other NR-NCD. Globalization is a term that generates strong reactions, in spite (or perhaps because) of its vague definition. Included in what we term globalization is a shift in dominance on the ...
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 ...
Understanding the health and disease trends in groups of states at a similar level of development or epidemiological transition is an important intermediate step in teasing apart the heterogeneity of disease and risk factor epidemiology in India. However, effective action to improve health must finally be based on the specific health situation of each state. This point is elucidated by significant variations in the burden from leading diseases and risk factors in 2016 between the following pairs of states that have physical proximity and are at similar levels of development and epidemiological transition.. The major EAG states of Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh both have a relatively lower level of development indicators and are at a similar less advanced epidemiological transition stage. However, Uttar Pradesh had 50% higher disease burden per person from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, 54% higher burden from tuberculosis, and 30% higher burden from diarrhoeal diseases, whereas Madhya ...
This report on two recent workshops held under the auspices of the World Health Organization deals with models of non- communicable diseases to be applied in the area of health policy which is to aim at the reduction of incidence and prevalence of noncommunicable diseases and the resulting disability and mortality. This applies to the community, national and international level. The methods described as well as topics and examples stated here enable the reader to understand the particular problems of noncommunicable disease development during forcasting periods needed for prevention and control programmes. In thiscontext disease development is characterized by a) slow development of risk factors in the course of time; b) multi- factorial interactions of several risk factors. Several papers also deal with the relationship between disease development and the appropriate health services in termsof the allocation of resources and cost-effectiveness of alternative technologies. Most reports include a wide
What fuels the rapid shift in the stage of the nutrition transition? Critical elements include urbanization, internationalization (globalization) of food production and marketing, expansion of mass media and communications, and changes in the work market with predominance of low-energy output labor. Almost 90% of the projected world population growth over the next 20 years will take place in the developing world. Even more striking is the fact that almost all this growth will occur in urban areas. Thus, todays developing world, still largely defined by the rural poor, will change dramatically in the next two decades, with the progressive dominance of an urban population. Urban dwelling is associated with an array of behaviors and lifestyles that are associated with higher levels of obesity and other NR-NCD. Globalization is a term that generates strong reactions, in spite (or perhaps because) of its vague definition. Included in what we term globalization is a shift in dominance on the ...

ZAKARIA: Theres no question that the great story over this next decade is going to be the rise of Asia, the rise of China and India in particular. If you look at 2009 as a symptomatic year, this is the year the U.S. economy collapsed and the Chinese economy is still going to grow at 8.7 percent -- no financial problems, no subprime loans, no maxed out consumers. And you are beginning to see the big emerging market economies -- China, India, Brazil -- take a path that is quite independent of what happens in the West. So far from being hooked on Western export markets, these guys are now moving. And they are developing a confidence politically, culturally of their own. And this is going to be the great story of the next decade ...
