In high-income countries, cancer has received considerable public attention
because it is one of the major causes of mortality, morbidity, and
disease burden. In middle- and particularly in low-income countries,
cancer has received less public attention because other diseases, especially
infectious diseases, have historically been far more pressing. Although less
prominent in relative terms, as this report documents, cancer is a major
burden in low- and middle-income countries (LMCs) today.
We included studies that evaluated the performance of the most
recent generation of commercial, RD1 antigen-based IGRAs
(QFT-GIT and T-SPOT) among adults (age $15 years) with
suspected active pulmonary tuberculosis or confirmed tuberculosis
in low- and middle-income countries ; the World
Bank Country Classification was considered as a surrogate for
national tuberculosis incidence. HIV infection was established
either by documented serological testing or self-report.
(BQ) Part 2 book "Prevention of cardiovascular diseases from current evidence to clinical practice" presents the following contents: Chagas disease - A neglected disease; prevention and control of cardiovascular diseases - Policies, strategies and interventions; prevention and control of cardiovascular diseases focusing on low and middle income countries; posttraumatic stress disorder and cardiovascular disease,...
Recent empirical research on the impact of privatization on financial and operating performance, labour, fiscal balances and distributional equity largely confirms the view that privatization can be beneficial for firms operating in a competitive market structure in middle-income countries.
This publication is the product of a comprehensive consultation undertaken by WHO in 2001 involving leading experts in the field of cancer epidemiology, screening and treatment. It is part of WHO's commitment to provide evidence-based guidelines to decision makers, and a recognition of the priority that should be given to cervical cancer screening and treatment as an essential component of any comprehensive national cancer control program. The report focuses particularly on the situation in low and middle income countries - countries in......
The global environment is changing rapidly, partly in response to economic
globalization. These global changes are clearly evident at the local level, even in
the quality of air that people breath. In some high income countries air quality
has been improving, due to a combination of de-industrialization, improved
technologies and environmental regulation. However, advances in the science of
epidemiology suggest that even air that would until recently have been
considered ‘clean’ may contain pollutants that are hazardous to people’s health.
Starting in the 1980s, Nobel economist Milton Friedman played
an important role, along with many other economists and public pol-
icy experts, in the development of an index of economic freedom that
would allow researchers to be able to measure the degree to which a
country had a free market economy. Those efforts culminated in the
Fraser Institute’s publication in 1996 of the first edition of Economic
Freedom of the World. There have been 14 more editions published
since then in what is now an annual series.
The global burden of neuropsychiatric disorders is substantial. When measured by years lived
with disability and years lost due to premature death in disability-adjusted life years (DALYs),
psychiatric and neurological conditions accounted for 13% of the global burden of disease in
2002 (WHO, 2004).
Despite the huge burden of mental illness, few human and financial resources are directed
towards mental health care. Mental health spending in many countries of the world is less than
1% of the health budget, and the number of mental health professionals is grossly inadequate
After completing this chapter, students will be able to: Describe how the World Bank distinguishes between industrial advanced countries (high-income nations) and developing countries (middle-income and low-income nations), list some of the obstacles to economic development, explain the vicious circle of poverty that afflicts low-income nations,...
After reading this chapter, you should be able to: Describe how the World Bank distinguishes between industrial advanced countries (high-income nations) and developing countries (middle-income and low-income nations), list some of the obstacles to economic development, explain the vicious circle of poverty that afflicts low-income nations, discuss the role of government in promoting economic development within low-income nations.
Vietnam has a vision to build a democratic, clean, strong and modernised civil
service. It promulgated the Ordinance of Cadre and Civil Servants in 1998,
revised it in 2000 and 2003 and recently promulgated the new Law on Cadre and
Civil Servants that will come into effect on January 2010. The PAR Master
Programme (20012010) also made efforts to improve the quality of the civil
service and civil servant management, with mixed success. ...
In low- and middle-income countries, complications from pregnancy and
childbirth are the leading cause of death among girls aged 15 to 19. And in
2008, there were an estimated three million unsafe abortions among girls
in this age group.
The adverse effects of adolescent childbearing also extend to the health
of their infants. Perinatal deaths are 50% higher among babies born to
mothers under 20 years of age than among those born to mothers aged
20 to 29. The newborns of adolescent mothers are also more likely to have
low birth weight, with the risk of long-term effects....
Increased intake of saturated fat and refined sugars underlies much of the problem of emerging obesity all over the world. This includes middle-income countries like Thailand, which are subject to successful marketing of Western fast foods especially targeted at adolescents. In this study we explore the socio-cultural influences on fast-food intake for non-metropolitan (rural and urban) adolescents in North East Thailand (Isan).
The International Diabetes Federation reports that the number of diabetics in the world is expected to increase from 194 million in 2003 to 330 million by 2030, when 3 of every 4 sufferers will live in developing countries. Because diabetics are far more frequently under the age of 65 in developing nations, the complications of micro- and macrovascular disease take a far greater toll. In 2005, an estimated 1.1 million people died of diabetes-related illnesses, and 80% of these deaths occurred in low- and middle-income countries.
Standard economic theory argues that international private capital flows will make a major contribution to development to the extent that they will flow from capital-abundant industrialized countries to capital-scarce developing countries, and help to smooth spending throughout the business cycle in capital-recipient countries. In recent years, reality has contradicted both aspects of this standard theory. For the last seven years, developing countries have transferred large amount of resources to developed countries.
The third section of the book reviews some of the major challenges in
health systems. These include health resources, technology and management of
medical devices. The role of private business in public health is also explored. The
final section contains a variety of issues related to global health. This includes the rise
of NCDs in low and middle income countries, neglected diseases related to poverty
and health and longevity medicine. A chapter of alcoholism and mortality examines
the effects of a public health system breakdown.
If you already have health problems that are likely to mean you will need
long-term care (for example, Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease), you
probably won’t be able to buy a policy. Insurance companies have medical
underwriting standards to keep the cost of long-term care insurance
affordable. Without such standards, most people would not buy coverage
until they needed long-term care services.
Some states have a regulation requiring the insurance company and the
agent to go through a worksheet with you to decide if long-term care
insurance is right for you.
