It's sustainability in economically constrained societies can lead to malnutrition. The results of the study carried out in Nairobi, Kenya reveal the nutrition status of breastfed and replacement fed infants. Though breastfeeding carries a risk of HIV infection it leads to better nutrition status in the children.

Telling one's HIV test result to others is a public health goal in HIV/AIDS prevention. It helps to engage in preventive behaviors and to access the necessary support for coping with serostatus or illness. It may motivate sexual partners to seek testing, change behavior and ultimately decrease transmission of HIV. Nonetheless the reality is that many HIV positive individuals do not disclose their results to their partners, families and social networks. The secrecy towards HIV results has contributed to the widespread stigmatization of HIV infection and continued spread of infection. As the global fight to HIV/AIDS progresses the importance of HIV disclosure is becoming more important. The book explored HIV positive status disclosure rate, the rezones behind non-disclosure of HIV positive results, and the outcomes of HIV status disclosure and identifies the role of gender in HIV results secrecy. Multilateral organizations, program planners’, policy makers and researchers in academic institutions are the intended beneficiaries of the book.

Since its emergence in early 1980's, HIV/AIDS remains a global health problem of unmatched dimensions. It has caused millions of death globally and has led to deep demographic changes mainly in most heavily affected countries. Voluntary HIV counselling and testing (VCT) is one of the key strategies in the HIV/AIDS prevention and control programs. However, utilization of these services has been reported to be low mainly among adult men even though they are yet the key decision makers both at home, at the workplace, in the parliament as well as at religious institutions. The book presents the prevalence and factors associated with voluntary HIV counselling and testing services utilization among adult men (aged 15-59 years) in Ethiopia. This book can be interesting for health professionals, concerned government bodies, HIV/AIDS prevention activists as well students.

Mental health and HIV/AIDS are closely interlinked. Mental disorders, including substance-use disorders, are associated with increased risk of HIV infection and affect adherence to and efficacy of antiretroviral treatments. Conversely, HIV infection can increase risk for neuropsychiatric complications including stress, mood, and neurocognitive disorders. This book provides clinicians with a comprehensive evidenced-based and practical approach to the management of patients with HIV infection and co-morbid mental disorders. It provides up-to-date and clear overviews of current clinical issues, as well as the relevant basic science. Information and data from studies of different HIV groups (eg men who have sex with men) make the text relevant to a broad spectrum of clinicians, including those working with low socioeconomic status groups in high income countries and those working in the developing world. The book uses the popular format of the World Psychiatric Association’s Evidence and Experience series. Review chapters summarize the evidence on the epidemiology, pathogenesis and clinical aspects of mental disorders in HIV,and interventions (both psychotherapy and psychopharmacology including drug-drug interactions). These are complemented by commentaries addressing particular facets of each topic and providing insight gained from clinical experience. Psychiatrists, psychologists and all mental health staff working with HIV-infected patients will find this book of great benefit.

After nearly 4 years of working in HIV and AIDS field, I have studied the whole episode from different parts of the world. My experience of being born and grown up in Africa, where nearly 22.5 million people are living with HIV and AIDS and has only 10% of world's population (UNAIDS/WHO,2008) and my working experience in England for nearly seven years have taught me that, the developed world approaches towards HIV Pandemic are quite different from that of developing World. The review of educational approach on HIV awareness, prevention, treatment and care management reveals that there are health inequalities between the developed and developing worlds (Pratt, 2003). In addition I have learned that the attitudes of us, Africans, towards HIV and AIDS need to change in order to effectively promote HIV/AIDS Prevention intervention in the communities, starting from the grassroots through to the government levels. The prevention Intervention of HIV in the developed world has been successful due to various opportunities and strengths including economy, technology and communities' accessibility to education which, have much influence in combating HIV and AIDS Pandemic.

Thilo Klein Why Do India's Urban Poor Choose to Go Private?. Health Policy Simulations in Slums of Hyderabad

2877 руб.
Why does a large proportion of India's urban poor choose to pay for private health services when public services are essentially free of charge? Drawing from previous research, this study takes the underprovision of the medication component in public health packages as a starting point. Field evidence shows that patients in public health facilities often have to get external medication, whereas private hospitals offer a menu of pre-specified care packages. Thilo Klein contributes an answer as to why the poor choose to go private by investigating their risk-aversion and demand for insurance in the choice of health facilities. In discrete choice experiments on maternity care in the slums of Hyderabad, the author finds that the lowest income group attaches significantly higher importance to "full medication" maternity care packages. In line with Expected Utility theory, the study further finds empirical evidence that this insurance demand of the poor is partially explained by their risk-aversion. The findings suggest that an effective pro-poor policy should provide insurance cover for medication-related expenses. They have significant implications for the provision of public health care to the poor and are important for policy-makers and health management alike.

Early HIV diagnosis has two major advantages: prevention of the progression of HIV infection through early initiation of antiretroviral medication; and reduction of the risk of HIV transmission. Despite these advantages, many individuals do not obtain an HIV test. African-born immigrants in the United States (U.S) are often diagnosed at a late stage of the HIV infection, and are more likely than the US-born persons to enter HIV care with advanced HIV. This unique epidemiological profile notwithstanding, few academic literatures exist on the HIV testing patterns of African immigrants in the U.S. U.S. surveillance reports often marginalize African-born immigrants and cluster them with U.S. born blacks. This book models a research framework to reach this marginalized, hard-to-reach immigrant population. Through a survey methodology, the book elucidated the HIV testing behaviors of African immigrants. Findings expounded in this book point in many directions for consideration by health professionals and by the African immigrant community. Interventions to enhance awareness of HIV risk and to expand HIV testing to meet the exact needs of this group of immigrants appears to be needed.

Cambodia is one of the few countries in the world to achieve the MDG in reversing the spread of HIV, with the prevalence falling from 3% in 1998 to 0.7% in 2008. The decline indicates a high commitment from government and civil society in the fight against HIV. The book highlights the success in multiple interventions and challenges facing over the course of the epidemic. The work is based on different studies conducted over the course of preventive interventions from 2002 to 2005 to investigate the epidemiological context of the epidemic, and how this is related to changes in risk behaviours in the general population and in sub-groups of the population. Results from this work suggest an optimistic future in HIV control and prevention in Cambodia. However, challenges do remain, including the reliable quality of HIV/STI service deliveries, the sustainability of preventive programmes, and the dependency of heavily external funding supports. This book should be useful for students and professionals in public health especially for program planners and researchers, or anyone who may be interested in the development of HIV prevention and control in developing countries.

This study examines the risk factors related to HIV infection among 400 female sex workers (FSWs) aged 16-57 years in Vinh Long Proovince, Viet Nam. It uses secondary data from a cross-sectional study about knowledge, attitude, beliefs, and practice on HIV/AIDS. The main purpose is to determine the impacts of risk factors on HIV infection. Binary logistic regression showed perception of risk, perceived pay value, and using drug were significantly associated with HIV infection. FSWs who used drug were 32 times more likely to be infected with HIV than their counterparts. FSWs who reported that they had high risk of HIV infection were more likely to be infected with HIV than the ones reported that they had low risk or no risk of HIV infection. In addition, low income FSWs were more likely to be infected with HIV than high income FSWs. The findings suggested setting up a Drop-in-Center for FSWs who come to share both difficulties and experiences to protect themselves from HIV infection. Furthermore, strengthening the peer educators’ channels to provide HIV/AIDS information, knowledge, living skills and condom, needles and syringes directly to FSWs is strongly recommended.

Hearing loss directly affects a child's ability to develop normal language skills, impairs his ability to communicate with others in the environment, and has been shown to correlate with poor academic performance. Screening is only the beginning of a successful path for infants who are deaf or hard of hearing. Newborns who don't pass the screening should receive further audiometric evaluation. However, if hearing loss is detected early and interventions are begun as early as possible, children with hearing loss develop language, cognitive, and speech skills comparable to their non-hearing-impaired peers. The technology and expertise for implementation of neonatal hearing screening is available, accurate and acceptable. The OAEs/ ABR test protocol is effective means of diagnosing hearing impaired children. Universal hearing screening is very important and meaningful. The hearing loss among high risk babies is 17.3 times more prevalent in high risk babies compared to normal babies. So more attention towards high risk babies and their prolonged follow up should be required. This monograph helps in establishing proper protocol for hearing assessment in new born and small children.

Hiv is a major risk factor for kidney disease especially among children of African descent. Also, art’s and other drugs used in the treatment of HIV-infected children are known to be potentially nephrotoxic, despite their beneficial effects. This highlights the need for a precise assessment of kidney function to enable early interventions. However, serum creatinine and other common methods of evaluation of kidney function have major limitations especially in HIV-infected children. Several studies have shown serum cystatin C to be superior to creatinine as a marker of kidney damage, promptly detecting early stages of ckd so that therapeutic measures can be instituted to halt or slow their progression. Hence, as in this study, utilisation of such a marker is of utmost importance in view of the peculiarity of the resource-poor African setting where facilities for long term management of esrd in children are scarce and unaffordable. In addition, there is paucity of data on kidney function of Hiv-infected children in this sub-region. This research has added to the pool of information that will enable the development of clinical practice guidelines on assessment and management of ckd

Human security is presented as different from traditional security in that the later seeks to protect nations from external threats while the former seeks to protect people from both external and internal threats such as threats of chronic diseases, hunger, unemployment, crimes, social conflicts, political repressions, environmental hazards and HIV/AIDS. Human security was assessed in light of the seven areas of threats to human security which are economic, food, health, environment, personal, community, and political security. Four major themes emanated from this research these being: the financial, health, nutritional and societal impacts of HIV/AIDS on the households in Bulawayo, chief of these being the financial impact in form of increased expenditure, reduced income and diverted investments of households.

The goal of the research was to assess the effects of containment of non-heterosexuality on Zambia’s fight against sexual contraction and transmission of HIV. Containment referred to the Zambian government’s use of the penal code to regulate sexual activities outside the norms of heterosexual sexual intercourse. Focus was on males.Findings revealed that religious, societal and political attitudes towards issues of sexual minorities to be cold and hostile.Challenges identified in addressing the fight against HIV for non-heterosexuals were found to be; first,negative laws and attitudes towards sexual minorities affected their access to sexual health information and services; Second, existing laws and attitudes denied sexual minorities an opportunity to adopt safe sexual practices in their sexual interactions; third, a number of homosexual men and MSM remained untested for HIV because of their assumption that they were not at risk for acquiring HIV through anal sexual intercourse; and five, there was possibility of spread of HIV to women through transmission of HIV to women engaged in heterosexual acts with male partners that contracted HIV through homosexual sexual intercourse.

Venkatapuram Sridhar Health Justice. An Argument from the Capabilities Approach

Social factors have a powerful influence on human health and longevity. Yet the social dimensions of health are often obscured in public discussions due to the overwhelming focus in health policy on medical care, individual-level risk factor research, and changing individual behaviours. Likewise, in philosophical approaches to health and social justice, the debates have largely focused on rationing problems in health care and on personal responsibility. However, a range of events over the past two decades such as the study of modern famines, the global experience of HIV/AIDS, the international women’s health movement, and the flourishing of social epidemiological research have drawn attention to the robust relationship between health and broad social arrangements. In Health Justice, Sridhar Venkatapuram takes up the problem of identifying what claims individuals have in regard to their health in modern societies and the globalized world. Recognizing the social bases of health and longevity, Venkatapuram extends the ‘Capabilities Approach’ of Amartya Sen and Martha Nussbaum into the domain of health and health sciences. In so doing, he formulates an inter-disciplinary argument that draws on the natural and social sciences as well as debates around social justice to argue for every human being’s moral entitlement to a capability to be healthy. An ambitious integration of the health sciences and the Capabilities Approach, Health Justice aims to provide a concrete ethical grounding for the human right to health, while advancing the field of health policy and placing health at the centre of social justice theory. With a foreword by Sir Michael Marmot, chair of the WHO Commission on the Social Determinants of Health.

Infectious disease surveillance has evolved at an extraordinary pace during the past several decades, and continues to do so. It is increasingly used to inform public health practice in addition to its use as a tool for early detection of epidemics. It is therefore crucial that students of public health and epidemiology have a sound understanding of the concepts and principles that underpin modern surveillance of infectious disease. Written by leaders in the field, who have vast hands-on experience in conducting surveillance and teaching applied public health, Concepts and Methods in Infectious Disease Surveillance is comprised of four sections. The first section provides an overview, a description of systems used by public health jurisdictions in the United States and legal considerations for surveillance. The second section presents chapters on major program-area or disease-specific surveillance systems, including those that monitor bacterial infections, foodborne diseases, healthcare-associated infections, and HIV/AIDS. The following section is devoted to methods for conducting surveillance and also approaches for data analysis. A concluding section summarizes communication of surveillance findings, including the use of traditional and social media, in addition to showcasing lessons learned from the New York City Department of Health’s experience in surveillance and epidemiology training. This comprehensive new book covers major topics at an introductory to intermediate level, and will be an excellent resource for instructors. Suitable for use in graduate level courses in public health, human and veterinary medicine, and in undergraduate programs in public-health-oriented disciplines, Concepts and Methods in Infectious Disease Surveillance is also a useful primer for frontline public health practitioners, hospital epidemiologists, infection control practitioners, laboratorians in public health settings, infectious disease researchers, and medical and public health informaticians interested in a concise overview of infectious disease surveillance.

Solid Waste Management is severely deficient in rural Alaska. The majority of rural communities have unpermitted Class III landfills for waste disposal. These unpermitted landfills are commonly known as open dumps. Open dumps increase human health risks by exposure to solid and hazardous materials, including pathogens from human excreta disposed at dump sites due to lack of adequate solid waste, water and sewer facilities. Current federal and state policies lack adequate public health policies or public health actions to address this deficiency. This project analyzed five solid waste management policies that affect rural Alaska and provided three policy options and one public health action recommendation, including: 1. Transferring Authority for Un-permitted Class III Landfills 2. Developing a Statewide Solid Waste Policy 3. Establishing a Solid Waste Fund for Unmet Needs 4. Implementing a Public Health Approach

Seventy percent of the global burden of mental disorders is located in low and middle income countries (LMIC),including sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). However, in Africa,only 0.62% of the national health budget is allocated to mental health compared to a global median of 2.8% and 5% in Europe. The government is the source of funding in 62%of patients with severe mental disorder in the World Health Organisation (WHO), Africa Region, the lowest of all the WHO regions, and lower compared to a global median of 79%. This is compounded by poor resources, with mental health outpatient facilities in WHO Africa Region being less that 10% of the global median. To address these problems, the WHO launched its Mental Health Action Gap Programme (mhGAP) in 2008, to scale-up mental health services in low and middle income countries (LMIC). The book is directed to all policy makers in sub-Saharan Africa to aid decision making about the urgent need for sustainable and relevant mental health care strategies, and the important areas that need priority. The book should be helpful to local and international researchers in formulating research questions relevant to the African continent and it will be of interest to medical practitioners and students in the region as adjunct to standard text books.

The present book studies the effectiveness of routine nutrition assessment offered to improve the nutrition status, well-being and quality of life of people living with HIV and AIDS attending HIV treatment and care at Hewu Hospital in Chris Hani District of the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. With the knowledge that HIV and malnutrition are interlinked, a great need for on-going nutritional assessment becomes critical in the treatment and care of people living with HIV and AIDS. In the absences of ARV treatment , people living with HIV and AIDS have a tendency to lose weight and ultimately become undernourished. At the same time ARV treatment is known to be associated with longer life span hence people living with HIV and AIDS tend to gain weight becoming overweight or obese.

Shorttitle: HIV/AIDS/TB in Kenya Mario J. Azevedo, Gwendolyn S. Prater, and Sandra Hayes argue that, without a deeper understanding of Kenya's cultural norms and practices on HIV/TB, which are spreading alarmangly in Kenya, scholars and health professionals will not be able to eradicate or meaningfully contain the devastating impact of the twin epidemics. A focus on factors such as the environment and the distribution and management of scarce resources alone represent only a fraction of what is needed to restore the health of the people and have them respond positively to the efforts made by the government authorities, health care providers, and humanitarians of international organizations. The three authors acknowledge the small victories Kenya has achieved against the burden of disease. However, without an integrated approach to the reduction and eradication of the many man-made and environmental factors responsible for HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, diabetes, and other ailments, which together weaken and inhibit people's immune system, Kenya's health future will remain bleak for many years to come.

Mpigi District is a rural district in Uganda with high maternal morbidity and mortality. While most pregnant women in Uganda attend antenatal clinics, few ultimately deliver their infants in a health facility. A review of maternal determinants and factors associated with health facility delivery is the focus of this study. This is a quantitative, descriptive, cross-sectional study of 257 women in the Mpigi District. The results show that women delivered in health facilities because they expected a safe delivery. Ten factors were found to be significantly associated with a higher possibility of health facility delivery: eight or more years of education (P=0.002); previous health facility delivery (P<0.0001); first delivery in a health facility (P<0.0001); the other factors included the history of a non-health facility delivery; percentage of deliveries in a health facility; number of antenatal visits; socio-economic status; number of individuals living within a household and distance from a health facility. This book shows the significant determinants of health facility delivery in this rural setting.

This book outlines the current epidemiology of HIV associated oral lesions globally and stratifies countries falling under all six WHO regional offices according to high, medium and low prevalence of oral manifestations of HIV infection. Currently there are many knowledge gaps in the prevalence of oral lesions related to HIV infection from different regions as majority of the countries have no database or referral system for these kind of lesions. This is an obstacle to the implementation of various HIV prevention and health promotion programmes as oral lesions are strong indicators of HIV infection, invariably often are the first lesions to be identified and reportedly, are markers of disease progression and parallel the changes in various laboratory markers like CD4 cell count and HIV viral load. Having such a database can prove to be very pivotal in our fight against AIDS because of its diagnostic and prognostic significance. This work is amongst some early studies to show the prevalence globally across countries falling under all six WHO regional offices.

Uganda is one of the highest consumer of alcohol in the world. However, HIV care and treatment programs have limited evidence based strategies for alcohol use among persons living with HIV. Instead HIV care and treatment programs have adopted a no alcohol position when on ART policy to deal with poor adherence among patients in care programs. In our findings, a half of the patients interviewed (50%, 95% CI 45-55) consumed alcohol. Men were more likely to consume alcohol compared to women (OR= 2.39, 95% CI 1.53-3.72) and lack of information on adverse effects of alcohol was associated with alcohol use. (OR= 0.54, 95% CI 0.33-0.86). HIV prevention and control programs need to consider alcohol use in reducing the rate of HIV transmission and re-infection among PLH in resource limited settings.

Adherence to ART is the most powerful predictor of survival for PLWHA; several factors have been associated with ART adherence such as patient characteristics, socioeconomic factors, treatment regimen, disease characteristics, patient-care provider relationship, and clinical settings. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to identify and to assess factors influencing ART adherence in the different dimension like Socio-economic effects, adherence information, and level of adherence behaviour among patients who take ARV drugs in Fital Health Center in Yaya Gulale Woreda. In the result of the study shows that that the more disadvantageous part of the population that is female and youth are exposed to HIV. In addition, awareness creation program is very essential for the people about the benefit of ARV drug and the benefit of the adherence to the drug for life long time to live long with HIV. Factors like too busy, lack of awareness on the benefit of adherence on medication that prescribed by health care providers that influence the adherent level of most respondents. So, patients have to give due attention for the medication because this is the way they sustain their life.
