The global health system : institutions in a time of transition( )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The global health system is in a period of rapid transition, with an upsurge of funds and greater political recognition, a broader range of health challenges, many new actors, and the rules, norms and expectations that govern them in flux. The traditional actors on the global health stage - most notably national health ministries, the World Health Organization (WHO) and a relatively small group of national medical research agencies and foundations funding global health research - are now being joined (and sometimes challenged) by a variety of newer actors: civil society and nongovernmental organizations, private firms, and private philanthropists, and an ever-growing presence in the global health policy arena of low- and middle-income countries, such as Kenya, Mexico, Brazil, China, India, Thailand, and South Africa. We present here a series of four papers on one dimension of the global health transition: its changing institutional arrangements. We define institutional arrangements broadly to include both the actors (individuals and/or organizations) that exert influence in global health and the norms and expectations that govern the relationships among them. We focused on three central questions regarding the global health system: (1) What functions must an effective global health system accomplish? (2) What kind of institutional arrangements can better govern the growing and diverse set of actors in the system to ensure that those functions are performed? (3) What lessons can be extracted from analysis of historical experience with malaria to inform future efforts to address them and the coming wave of new health challenges?

Gulf War illness and the health of Gulf War veterans : research update and recommendations, 2009-2013 by Research Advisory Committee on Gulf War Veterans' Illnesses( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report was produced by the federal Research Advisory Committee on Gulf War Veterans' Illnesses (RACGWVI), which was established by Congress under Public Law 105-368. Membership includes veterans of the 1990-91 Gulf War, scientists who have studied illnesses affecting these veterans, clinicians who care for ill Gulf War veterans and a member of the general public. The Committee periodically releases reports that summarize research to date on the health of veterans of the 1990-1991 Gulf War. The most recent report was published in 2008, and the current report updates knowledge from that time by reviewing published scientific papers that appeared after the last report and through December 2013. The present research review is divided into four sections. The first summarizes the new information available on rates of Gulf War illness and other illnesses and disabilities that affect groups of veterans from the Gulf War (Section 1, Epidemiologic Research). The second reviews the human and animal research that has been carried out to identify the causes of Gulf War illness and other health problems in Gulf War veterans (Section 2: Etiologic Investigations). The third section focuses on studies of the disruptions in normal body functions that underlie the symptoms of Gulf War illness and other health problems (Section 3: Pathobiology of Gulf War illness). And the fourth reviews clinical trials that are underway to treat Gulf War illness (Section 4: Gulf War illness treatment research)
