Health in the Americas by Pan American Health Organization( )

in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Health in the Americas is the five-year report on the health situation, health determinants, and health trends in the Americas issued by the Pan American Health Organization's Secretariat. Encompasses two broad and complementary sections-one describes and analyzes the health situation in each of the Region's 48 countries and territories; the other examines the salient health issue in the Region as a whole. The content of Health in the Americas is closely linked to the eight areas of action defined and agreed upon by the Ministers of Health of the Americas in the Health Agenda for the Americas and thus provides valuable information for documenting the progress made and challenges to be faced in implementing that agenda
AIDS, profile of an epidemic( Book )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication reflects the interest and concern of the community of workers and scientists in the health field in the face of the problem caused by acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) in the Region of the Americas. It constitutes what could be considered an epidemiologic mosiac of the similiarities and differences of AIDS and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection in various countries and subregions of the Hemisphere. The North American experience, in which transmission among homosexuals and by contaminated needles and syringes predominates, contrasts with the rapid changes observed in the distribution of cases in the English-speaking Caribbean and Haiti, where an increasing number of women are affected by AIDS, and with the persistence of blood transmission in countries of Latin America. The first part of this publication provides a descriptive and analytic sample of the epidemiology of AIDS that-ranging from the northern to the southern end of the Hemisphere-comprises Canada, the United States of America, Mexico, Columbia, and Brazil, as well as Cuba and the English-speaking Caribbean. Interestingly, some of the articles not only document what has happened with the disease, but venture projections, derived from various premises and forecasting techniques, about the future of the epidemic. Withal, the consensus is that the problem will get considerably worse in the near future (Regional Adviser-PAHO)
