  • Writing a book like this requires a number of key ingredients. One is the body of sophisticated and exciting research on reproductive biology and health from which I have drawn extensively. A quick glance at the list of references cited provides a good compilation of the work that I believe has the most to offer as we try to understand challenges to women’s health that we are facing and will continue to face as global resources constrict, population expands, and more and more people strive for the lifestyles of the ‘‘health-rich’’ nations.

  • This timely book describes the issues that compel us to craft a new social agenda for Latin America, which now needs to incorporate the challenges of the growing aging population. The region has improved the efficiency of its social policies, but we have a long road ahead and we need to continue innovating. Governments and the private sector must learn to balance the demands posed by a rapidly growing population of seniors while continuing to invest in the education of our youth and the needs of the poor. This book should be of interest to anyone with a serious interest...

What can be done to improve access to good health technologies, especially for poor people in poor countries? This book answers those questions by developing a comprehensive analytical framework for access and examining six case studies. Access to health technologies in poor countries is shaped by social, economic, political, and cultural processes.

  • Poverty is higher in remote rural areas and in inner cities, but the rural elderly are much more likely to be poor than those living in urban areas. Thirteen percent of rural elders 60 years and older were poor in 2000, compared with nine percent of elders living in a metro area [20]. Thus we expect to find the most evidence of impeded access for the poor elderly who reside in rural areas. We interact the proportion of elderly in poverty with the proportion in rural areas to include in the model.

  • Neighborhood features may be protective or harmful for health of persons once in old age. Given the rapidly aging population, and the potential economic and social benefits of having older persons age in place, understanding the effects of neighborhoods on the health of the elderly is important for the formulation of public policy. In this paper, we provide an overview of what is known about neighborhoods and health in late life and discuss the potential and challenges of using national survey data to study this topic.

  • Poor nutrition is a major problem in older Americans. Inadequate intake affects approximately 37 to 40 percent of community-dwelling individuals over 65 years of age (Ryan et al., 1992). In addition, the vast majority of older Americans have chronic conditions in which nutrition interventions have been demonstrated to be effective in improving health and quality-of-life outcomes. Eighty-seven percent of older Americans have either diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidemia, or a combination of these chronic diseases (NCHS, 1997).

  • The path trailed by the composer up until then, however, was littered with obstacles.

  • In a number of developing countries, obesity currently affects all income groups of adult men and women, but it is rapidly increasing among poor urban populations.

  • Several particularmodels have been constructed to develop the new perspective.We are still nowhere near to having an overarching model, of the kind economists are used to in the theory of general competitive equilibrium. 19 Some models have as their ingredients large inequalities in land ownership in poor countries and the non-convexities that prevail at the level of the individual person in transforming nutrition intake into nutritional status and, thereby, labour productivity (Dasgupta and Ray, 1986, 1987; Dasgupta, 1993, 1997b).

  • Many human societies have tended to identify and marginalise all kinds of people based upon their real or perceived difference to an accepted common standard, whether racial, physical, cultural or otherwise. Fear of diversity has led to prejudice, victimisation and oppression. It is hardly inconceivable to imagine that cloned humans at least during the early stages of introduction of clones into society may be the subject of abuse which runs contrary to their well being.

  • The poultry sub-sector is crucially important in the context of agricultural growth and improvement of diets of people in Bangladesh. The sub-sector is particularly important in that it is a significant source for the supply of protein and nutrition in a household's nutritional intake. It is an attractive economic activity as well, especially to women and poor population. One of the major problems of development of the poultry sub-sector in Bangladesh relates to lack of sufficient and appropriate feeds (Mitchell 1997; Alam 1997).

  • There are several reasons that may explain why the prevalence of heart failure is increasing: ageing of the population, the success in prolonging survival in coronary patients, and the success in postponing coronary events by effective prevention in those patients at high risk or those patients who have already survived a first event (secondary prevention) (Senni et al, 1999). Advances in medical therapy have resulted in improved survival in patients with moderate and severe heart failure, but the prognosis for end-stage heart failure patients still remains poor.
