  • The relationship between air pollution and premature mortality is most often studied using time-series analysis of daily observations of the number of deaths and pollution levels. These studies capture the effects of short-term exposure to pollution on the probability of dying. The underlying assumption is that there is a distribution of susceptibility to the effects of air pollution in any population. People who are in a weakened physical state or who have a history of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or cardio-pulmonary problems are thought to be the most vulnerable.

  • The belief that children will take care of the parents in the old age is eroding in India where the family size has been cut down as a result of the demographic process (Dandelkar, 1996). The situation in the urban areas shows a rejection of older people by the next generation and this is spreading to rural areas (Desai, 1985). In the nuclear family regime, the position of the aged becomes more vulnerable and is treated as a burden to the family (Nayar, 1992). The social negligence of the aged occurs due to cultural, social and economic relations within the...

  • For many organizations their dependence on information systems, both within the company and networked up and down their supply chain, is now business critical. Any sustained loss of availability of these systems would threaten the very existence of the business. Security is a holistic issue. Vulnerabilities in physical, personnel and electronic security all need to be addressed with equal commitment. Too many businesses still focus on physical security without sustaining even basic precautions in personnel and electronic security....

  • There has been much discussion in recent months concerning who might be included in the population of “vulnerable” residents. The term “vulnerable” has most often been used interchangeably with the term “special needs.” In the most broad sense as related to disaster management, the vulnerable population refers to those individuals who do not feel they can adequately access the resources they need during all four phases of a disaster: preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation.

  • Any physical storage medium is, by definition, completely dependent upon very specific combinations of hardware and software for access. The accessibility of information stored on such media is highly vulnerable in today’s rapidly evolving technological environment. This issue is not solely the concern of digital archivists, but of all those responsible for managing and sustaining access to electronic records over even relatively short timescales.

  • Other areas, such as infec- tious disease and aging research, illustrate the dramatic recent progress made possible by evolutionary insights. In still other areas, such as epidemiology, psychiatry, and understanding the regulation of bodily defenses, applying evo- lutionary principles remains an open opportunity. In addition to the utility of specific applications, an evolutionary perspective fundamentally challenges the prevalent but fundamentally incorrect metaphor of the body as a machine designed by an engineer.

  • Chambers (1995) described the eight diminution of deprivation among the elderly as poverty, social inferiority, social isolation, physical weakness, vulnerability, seasonality, powerlessness and humiliation of the aged.

  • All Americans have a stake in effective response to hate crimes. These crimes demand priority attention because of their special impact. Bias crimes are designed to intimidate the victim and members of the victim’s community, leaving them feeling isolated, vulnerable, and unprotected by the law. Failure to address this unique type of crime could cause an isolated incident to explode into widespread community tension. The damage done by hate crimes, therefore, cannot be measured solely in terms of physical injury or dollars and cents.

  • Lack of secure land tenure and ownership also has a negative impact on women’s ability to reduce their vulnerability to HIV through greater economic as well as physical security and autonomy. When a woman does not own land, it often means that she is denied other economic opportunities, such as collateral for credit. Most women in the Huairou Commission have reported frustration at not being able to access adequate financing for improvement of what little land they may have, or for actually gaining or purchasing land or other property.

  • Imaging of sports related injuries has always been a very popular topic and the interest of radiologists in this domain has even increased in recent years. Competitive athletes are vulnerable to a variety of injuries and they are often very demanding in their expectations of a correct diagnosis, appropriate treatment and advice on prognosis and estimated recovery period. Working in sports imaging means team effort, whereby sports physicians, physical therapists, orthopaedic surgeons, radiologists and technicians work closely together. Radiology plays a pivotal role in this process....

  • The physical, social and intellectual development of children from conception to the end of adolescence requires an environment that is both protected and protective of their health. A growing number of dis- eases in children are linked to unsafe environments. Prenatal and early life exposures, including diet, are associated with child health and human development and predispose to late adult effects. Thus, the INMA project is based on three main rationales. First, exposure to environmental pollutants through air, water and food is worldwide.

  • Although pregnancy is considered a normal state, it is a vulnerable period in a woman's life because of exposure to a series of physical, mental, and socially adverse conditions. The earlier these conditions are recognized and addressed, the greater the chances of minimizing their impact. Addressing psychological distress during the perinatal period in an appropriate way makes circumstances better for the woman and her baby in the contexts in which they are living. Health workers attitudes and behaviours are of fundamental importance to promoting mental health.

  • Property-grabbing from widows and orphans began long before the HIV and AIDS pandemic. However, the scale of HIV infection rates, stigmatisation and the social and economic vulnerability of widows and orphans have worsened the situation. Targets of psychological and physical harassment, dispossessed of their property and evicted from their homes, women and children are left destitute.Too often, the personal stories of both hardship and resilience in the face of adversity are lost in the statistics and dry overviews of national policies and epidemiological trends.

  • As the NCPCR policy document states, “[...] civil unrest exposes children to multiple deprivations. Children are killed, hurt and maimed as a direct result of violence. Access to food, water, sanitation, health care and schooling deteriorates during unrest. Political insecurity pushes children into situations that can circumscribe the remainder of their lives. It disrupts families and social networks that support children’s physical, emotional and social development. The NCPCR has encountered children who are displaced and forced to drop out of school as a result.
