Many people have contributed to the successful completion of this
book. Jenny Routledge initiated the cross-school Women’s Health
Initiative at the University of East Anglia, whose members undertook
the stimulating discussions, activities and conferences which led to
most of the chapters herein. Robbie Meehan provided excellent
support for those activities, so that they were always well run and
recorded; her co-ordination was essential in getting the book underway.
The purpose of this book is to share with science and health professions educators
the exciting discoveries that are being made by the application of team-based learning
(TBL) to the special challenges of modern medical education.
Professors in these disciplines everywhere face three daunting challenges. First, an
enormous amount of information must be learned, and it keeps growing. Second,
students must learn how to use and apply that information in contexts that vary
enormously between clinical cases and populations of cases.
Multimodal conversational spoken dialogues using physical and virtual agents provide a potential interface to motivate and support users in the domain of health and ﬁtness. The paper presents a multimodal conversational Companion system focused on health and ﬁtness, which has both a stationary and a mobile component.
Strengthening functioning systems to improve health outcomes will, in some cases, require new ways of thinking about
health investments and greater dialogue with partner countries about constraints and opportunities.
In order to deal with the many challenges in Northern Uganda, such as poverty and discrimination against
women, AWARE utilizes several strategies to empower women. The encourage women to be part of a
rotating loan scheme as they have found that rotating loans and subsequent economic empowerment
enhance women’s decision-making power in the household. AWARE also holds dialogues with Local
Councils to encourage the council to give women land, and to take other measures to reduce discrimination
Against this backdrop, the Vienna Policy Dialogue in preparation of the 2014 Development Cooperation Forum (DCF) will
explore how to firmly position gender equality and the empowerment of women and the protection of their rights in the
changing landscape of international development cooperation and in the evolving post-2015 UN development agenda.
Huairou Commission member in Binga District in the
Northwest of Zimbabwe, Ntengwe for Community
Development, with support from the Huairou
Commission, carried out an on-going land, property and
inheritance project at the grassroots level to provide
direction in the implementation of land rights and
property and inheritance rights for women and girls
through the support of women’s groups and community
dialogue. Watchdog groups were set up with 15 women
in each group. Women meet monthly for sharing
challenges and lessons learned.
Building on concrete examples of how mutual accountability enablers and structures, such as partnership policies and
sectoral or thematic working groups, can effectively promote gender-related development results, this dialogue will
address what targets mutual accountability frameworks should have in place to assess commitments on gender equality
and measure related development results, such as, for example, the number of girls with access to schooling.
Oversight is an important role assumed by the Bundesbank in the field of payment transactions. This
task is clarified with the latest amendment to Section 3 of the BBankG and is also recognised by the
Treaty and the Statute as a basic task of the Eurosystem. Its aim is to ensure smooth payment
transactions and encourage efficiency and security.
In practical terms, this function is exercised largely by means of the general agreements on
procedures and standards jointly developed with the banking sector and via institutionalised dialogues
in various official bodies.
Priority-setting approaches in the area of health have slighted SRH concerns.
A disease-oriented approach to health priority setting has not recognized the
importance of preventing unintended pregnancies. The consequences of these
extend beyond the direct individual disability concerns to social participation,
familial health and complex empowerment issues. Returns to investments in
SRH are, therefore, difficult to assess and often omitted from policy dialogues.
This book examines how professionals practising in various health and welfare
settings go about the ordinary, but complicated, business of making sense
of the symptoms and troubles with which their patients or clients present.
Our motivations for writing the book are varied, but are the result of our
conversations with each other about the problem of judgement in clinical
practice, which have taken place over many years of professional, academic
and research collaboration.
At the same time the edu-
cation sector has usually attempted to develop an approach to health grounded
in educational parameters e.g. enhancing students’ knowledge and understand-
ing, developing their analytical and evaluative competencies about individual
and community health issues and providing opportunities for them to create
ideas and strategies to address such issues.
Within the past decade, scholars have begun to reveal the important role
African American midwives played in the reproductive experiences of
southern women, both black and white. This book is a contribution to
the documentation of that African American presence. It is also a requiem
to the knowledge, skills, and beliefs that have been lost. If, thanks
to the classic movie Gone with the Wind, popular imagery has the African
American woman faced with the prospect of having to help deliver a
baby being completely hysterical, then recent scholarship counters that
Public health achieved considerable health improvements in the 19th
Century with for
example, treatment and legislation relating to water supply, sewage disposal and safer food. In
the last century this legacy was extended with improvements in nutrition, the introduction of
antibiotics and the sulphonamide drugs, early childhood vaccinations, the introduction of
legislation on the compulsory use of seat belt and tobacco controls and taxation etc.

A bad cold, I think… Hmm. Got a bit of a cough? Yes. Is your throat sore? Yes. Let's have a look at it. Hmm… say 'ah'. A-a-a-h. Have you taken anything for it? Yes. Hot lemon drinks. Uh-huh. Let's check your temperature. Hmm.
Since its inception in 1999, The World Life Sciences Forum BioVision has
played a vital role in promoting the sustainable development of Life Sciences
on an international level, ensuring that they remain beneficial to humankind
and the environment, and committed to ethics.
BioVision has established itself as a platform for dialogue and debate by
engaging top stakeholders and policy makers from Science, Society and Industry
in discussions of what science can do, what society is willing to accept, and
what industry can produce, all within a sound ethical framework.
This should be a puzzle. Much of the rationale for development economics as a
specialization is the thought that poor countries suffer particularly frominstitutional failures.But
institutional failures in greatmeasuremanifest themselves as externalities. To ignore population
growth and ecological constraints in the study of poor countries would be to suppose that
demographic decisions and resource-use there give rise to no externalities of significance, and
that externalities arising from institutional failure have a negligible effect on resource-use and
A fruitful dialogue between the public health and health care sector on the one hand,
and other policy areas on the other hand, is likely to be facilitated if the economic
benefits of reducing health inequalities were be made clear. It is the purpose of this
report to explore the economic implications of health inequalities in the European
Union. It addresses four specific questions.
However, this ratio had achieved levels of 13% and 14% in 2002 and 2003 respectively.
The Ministry of Health initiated a debate on the need for the development of a health
sector financing strategy. Such a strategy will also explore other financial mechanisms so
that individual contributions to health care do not lead to further impoverishment of the
