This guide presents resources on child and youth participation from Asia, Europe, North America,
Latin America, Africa, Australia and the Pacific. Most of the materials are available in electronic
form and have been included in the CD-ROM that is part of this guide. The main audiences for
this resource guide are practitioners and managers involved in promoting child and youth
participation in government, community-based organizations, child-led organizations, NGOs
and UN and donor agencies.
Medicaid, a joint federal and state program which provides health care
coverage for low-income individuals and families; pregnant women; and
aged, blind, and disabled people, provided health coverage for an
estimated 20.1 million children aged 2 through 18 in federal fiscal year
The states operate their Medicaid programs within broad federal
requirements and may contract with managed care organizations to
provide Medicaid benefits or use other forms of managed care, when
approved by CMS.
There is something special about teaching children. Jayne Moon's academic rigour and classroom experience inform every page of this book - but what shines through is a sense of the privilege it is to participate in someone's learning at this age in their lives. This is a practical handbook with lots of teaching suggestions - but it is also a source of inspiration.
Women's involvement in the formal sector has mainly been urban-based, as civil servants in
the health and education sectors, where they had a sizeable presence before the conflict. This
was severely disrupted by the strong restrictions on female employment during the Taliban
period. Currently, close to one-third of all teachers are female, while an estimated 40% of all
basic health facilities lack female staff, a clear constraint to delivering basic services (health, in
particular) to women.
Other adjustments include the incorporation of body mass index, the use of finasteride,
percentage free PSA and [-2]pro-PSA. It should be noted that the results of the Cancer Risk
Calculator for prostate cancer may not be applicable to all men as most participants in the
PCPT were Caucasian, and results may not be applicable to men of other races. In addition,
most men in this study underwent a sextant prostate biopsy. This has now been largely
superseded by an increase in the number of systematic biopsies taken routinely
(Heidenreich et al. 2010).
Aboriginal Women’s Health Research shall maintain open public access to final reports of
research activities. Reports may be circulated in draft form, Aboriginal community
response at this stage is deemed useful for purposes of revision.
Results of community research shall be distributed as widely as possible within
participating communities, and reasonable efforts shall be made to present results in non
technical language and Aboriginal languages where appropriate.
The objective of this study was to investigate the impact of oral health conditions on the quality of life of elderly people in Joaçaba - SC, in Southern Brazil. A survey based on systematic sampling of clusters was carried out with 183 elderly people that belong to old age groups. The survey was conducted in order to assess the oral conditions of the participants (use of and need for prosthesis) based on the criteria from the World Health Organization publication “Oral Health Surveys, Basic Methods”, 4th edition. The oral health impact profile (OHIP) was used to evaluate the impact of...
However, some focus group participants also found the use of electronic
music “distracting.” Several students who disliked the use of DJ Spooky’s music
accompanying Caligari noted being distracted by the modern drum loops and
electronic sounds, claiming that they didn’t “suit” the ﬁlm. Another student
anonymously described having seen the ﬁlm before, and feeling “far more
removed from the ﬁlm” because of the electronic music: “the experiment created
an unconscious focus on where the ﬁlm and the contemporary DJ track ‘synched’
Adverse selection occurs when a producer
has more information about the risk of
loss than does the insurer, and is better
able to determine the fairness of premium
rates (Harwood et al., 1999). As a result,
those who are overcharged are less likely
to purchase insurance, while those who
are undercharged are more likely to over-
purchase insurance. Over time,
indemnities will exceed premiums in such
markets, and raising premium rates for all
insureds will potentially create an even
more adversely selected market as the
less-risky participants drop out of the

The Experts’ Meeting was held in the Mitsubishi Research Institute and was attended by 81
people (see Appendix I for the list of participants).
Childnet International and the Internet Association, Japan have been co-operating for some
years on issues that affect child safety and participation on the Internet. The two organisations
held a joint meeting at the Second World Congress on the Commercial Sexual Exploitation of
Children in Yokohama in December 2001. At that meeting some of the challenges posed by
the new 3G mobile services in Japan were first discussed.
In 2008, the price of green power for residential customers in utility programs ranged from
-1.0¢/kWh (a savings compared to standard service) to 8.8¢/kWh above standard electricity
rates, with an average premium of 1.8¢/kWh and median of 1.5¢/kWh. These premiums have
been adjusted to account for any fuel-cost exemptions granted to green power program
In 2008, the utility programs with the lowest premiums for energy derived from
new renewable sources had premiums ranging from -1.0¢/kWh (a savings) to 0.9¢/kWh. On
average, consumers spend about $5.

In view of the potential health, development, and human rights implications of recent findings,
the World Health Organization's (WHO) Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse in
collaboration with the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), launched an initiative to
understand this problem better and to identify and propose solutions to it.
In order to obtain the sample, the universe of municipalities was those with little more than 100.000
individuals. The municipalities were classified in 25 strata according to geographical region, population
size living in the urban part of the municipality, the value of synthetic index for quality of life (QLI) as
well as education and health infrastructure.
Two treatment municipalities were randomly selected
within each stratum among the municipalities participating in Familias en Accion.
An intact two-parent family and regular church attendance are each
associated with fewer problem behaviors, more positive social development, and
fewer parental concerns about the child’s learning and achievement. Taken
together, the two home-environment factors have an additive relationship with
child well-being. That is, children who live in an intact family and attend religious
services regularly generally come out best on child development measures, while
children who do neither come out worst.

Many factors can influence the dynamic balance that exists between the host and the pathogen (M.
tuberculosis), but the host immune response seems to be the most important. This is illustrated by the vulnerability
of immune-compromised individuals to develop tuberculosis and by the age-related spectrum of disease witnessed
in immune-competent children. This age-related spectrum of disease reflects the ontogeny of the host immune
response towards M. tuberculosis.
A survey of members of the Incentive Travel and Meetings Association (ITMA) and of incentive
travel and conference organising agencies (key results published in ‘Conference & Exhibition
Fact Finder Magazine – November 2002) found that 63% of all incentive travel programmes
arranged for UK clients take place within the UK and Europe. The average size of events
organised by the majority of companies (63%) was between 50 and 99 people, and no increase
in the size of groups was anticipated in the next two years.
