Nuptiality patterns in developing countries : implications for fertility by Jane Durch( Book )

9 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in English and Undetermined and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Patterns of age at 1st marriage, the stability of marriages, and patterns of marital fertility in 15 developing countries were examined. Survey results for 9 Asian and 6 Latin American countries are included. Formal or informal marital unions and the values surrounding their formation and dissolution are important elements of nearly every social system. Marriage patterns are influenced and influence a wide range of factors, and fertility behavior is 1 of the most important factors. Due to this link people interested in achieving lower fertility levels in developing countries may view manipulation of marriage patterns as a potentially useful means of realizing that goal, yet the relationship between marriage and fertility is complicated. Evidence exists that in most of the Asian countries there is some trend toward later marriage, but there is much less evidence of any such trend in the Latin American countries. Informal consensual unions are widespread in Latin America and exhibit 2 basic patterns: numerous consensual unions among younger women gradually outnumbered by formal marriage among older women versus a relatively steady but fairly low proportion of consensual unions at all ages. Survey results support the idea that women with more education or with urban backgrounds tend to marry later. Major differences exist in the extent of divorce and separation. A country's birthrate may be reduced by lowering the level of either marital fertility rates or the proportions married. Family planning programs are aimed at the fertility rates, but changing the proportion of women married cannot be ignored. Social change is always difficult to bring about, and efforts to change marriage patterns are no different
Emergency medical services for children by Jane Durch( Book )

12 editions published between 1900 and 1993 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Noise and military service : implications for hearing loss and tinnitus( Book )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

People serving in the military will, at some point, be exposed to high-intensity noise of various types. Some may develop hearing loss, especially for high-frequency sounds, or tinnitus ("ringing in the ears"), or both, as a result of their noise exposure. Hearing loss or tinnitus incurred or aggravated during military service may qualify veterans for services and financial compensation from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Since World War II, the human and financial cost associated with hearing loss among military veterans have repeatedly drawn attention to noise, hearing loss, and the need for hearing conservation in military settings
International comparison of resource allocation in health sciences : an analysis of expenditures on biomedical research in 19 industrialized countries by Donald S Shepard( Book )

3 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Giving full measure to countermeasures : addressing problems in the DOD program to develop medical countermeasures against biological warfare agents( Book )

8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In recent years, substantial efforts have been initiated to develop new drugs, vaccines, and other medical interventions against biological agents that could be used in bioterrorist attacks against civilian populations. According to a new congressionally mandated report from the Institute of Medicine and National Research Council of the National Academies, to successfully develop these drugs, vaccines, and other medical interventions against biowarfare agents, Congress should authorize the creation of a new agency within the Office of the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Defense. The committee recommended that Congress should improve liability protections for those who develop and manufacture these products, to stimulate willingness to invest in new research and development for biowarfare protection. Giving Full Measure to Countermeasures also identifies other challenges such as the need for appropriate animal models and laboratories equipped with high-level biosafety protections that will require attention if DoD efforts to develop new medical countermeasures are to be successful."--Publisher's description

Protecting and improving quality of care for children under health care reform : workshop highlights by Jane S., Ed Durch( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report discusses the quality of health care for children in light of national health care reform proposals put forth in 1994, and is based on presentations and discussions at an invitational workshop on maternal and child health. The report examines issues related to: (1) the differences between health care provision for children and adults; (2) the dependent status of children; (3) children's patterns of illness and injury; (4) monitoring the quality of children's care needs, including medical and non-medical services; (5) the identification of additional indicators to assess children's health; (6) the establishment of accountability for the quality of the care that children receive; and (7) the need for further research to develop better techniques and tools to support assessments of the quality of children's health care. Two appendices provide a list of related publications from the Institute of Medicine and the National Research Council and a list of workshop participants. (Mdm)

Using performance monitoring to improve community health : exploring the issuse by Bobbie Berkowitz( Book )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report summarizes the proceedings of a May 1995 workshop, which reviewed a variety of public and private activities in health-related performance monitoring. An opening presentation focused on the experiences in conducting and using an assessment of health status in New York City's Washington Heights/Inwood neighborhood. The subsequent presentation explored characteristics and limitations of health plan performance indicators and how they might be applied in a broader community context. The final presentation in this portion of the workshop reviewed the development of measures of public health practice for assessing the performance of local health departments and Illinois' application of such assessments in certification of its local health departments

Gulf War veterans : measuring health by Lyla M Hernandez( )

2 editions published between 1900 and 1999 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study, sponsored by the Institute of Medicine, presents recommendations for researching the general health of Gulf War veterans. Although there is no single diagnosable illness or set of symptoms with a known etiology characterizing any set of Gulf War veterans, there does seem to be a higher prevalence of some symptoms such as fatigue, difficulty concentrating, memory loss, skin rash, headache, and muscle and joint pain. The Institute's committee recommends implementation of a research portfolio and study that they hope will answer questions about the causes of these symptoms.

The anthrax vaccine : is it safe? does it work? by Lois M Joellenbeck( )

3 editions published between 1900 and 2002 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anthrax Vaccine Adsorbed (AVA) was licensed in 1970 to provide protection against infection with Bacillus anthracis. AVA was initially administered on a limited basis, primarily to protect veterinarians and workers processing animal products such as hair or hides that could be contaminated with anthrax spores. In the 1990s, with growing concerns about the possible use of anthrax as a biological weapon, use of the vaccine was substantially expanded. The Department of Defense (DoD) vaccinated some of the military personnel deployed for the Gulf War in 1991 and in 1998 initiated the Anthrax Vaccine Immunization Program, calling for mandatory vaccination of all U.S. service members. By late 2001, roughly 2.1 million doses of AVA had been administered. Production of AVA was suspended in 1998 when the facility manufacturing the vaccine was closed for renovations, which were undertaken to meet regulatory requirements of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Concerns about the efficacy and safety of AVA, and about vaccine production, led Congress to direct the DoD to support an independent examination of AVA by the Institute of Medicine. In October 2000, the Institute of Medicine convened the Committee to Assess the Safety and Efficacy of the Anthrax Vaccine. The committee reviewed all available data, both published and unpublished, and heard from representatives of DoD, FDA, and other federal agencies; from the vaccine manufacturer BioPort; from researchers studying the efficacy and safety of the vaccine; and from service members and others with concerns about the safety or efficacy of the vaccine. After the bioterrorism of fall 2001, the committee accelerated its original timetable for its review. As indicated by evidence from studies in both humans and animals, the committee concluded that AVA, as licensed, is an effective vaccine to protect humans against anthrax, including inhalational anthrax
