Control of cardiovascular diseases in Developing countries : research, development, and institutional strengthening by Christopher Paul Howson( )

Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are increasing in epidemic proportions in developing countries. CVD already accounts for almost 10 percent of the developing world's burden of disease and is likely to become the developing world's leading cause of death. There is reason for hope, however, given that huge potential exists for applying R & D to control this emerging epidemic--both in creating powerful new interventions such as vaccines and dietary supplements and in guiding behavior. In addition, a considerable body of evidence suggests that current risk-factor prevention programs and low-cost case management of CVD offer feasible, cost-effective ways to reduce CVD mortality and disability in developing country populations. Large-scale CVD control efforts are lacking, however, and thus governments and individuals are left to make choices about health and health care services without the benefit of appropriate knowledge. This report was designed to promote a policy dialogue on CVD based on informed knowledge of R & D opportunities that offer effective, affordable, and widely applicable responses in developing countries. The report examines (a) the emerging burden of CVD in developing countries, (b) the future worldwide burden of CVD, (c) current prevention and treatment of CVD in developing countries, (d) R & D to support CVD control, (e) opportunities and priorities for R & D, and the need for institutional arrangements for collaboration in facing the epidemic

Estimated mean per capita energy requirements for planning emergency food aid rations by Institute of Medicine (U.S.)( )

11 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 1,740 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Committee on International Nutrition was asked by the U.S. Agency for International Development to recommend an estimated mean per capita energy requirement (termed EMPCER by the CIN) for populations of refugees and displaced persons that could be used to expedite food relief in situations in which nothing is known except the approximate number of people to be fed. The stated intention of USAID is to be use this value to calculate the amount of food required to meet all of the energy needs of such populations. In this report, the committee shows how the EMPCER can be calculated and presents a reasonable single estimate for a wide range of equally justifiable EMPCERs. Chapter 1 describes the project scope and its rationale. Chapter 2 provides a historical view of energy recommendations for refugee populations and describes the methods of estimating energy requirements of individuals and of populations of refugees and displaced persons. The committee describes the calculation of an estimated mean per capita energy requirement for use in planning the food energy needs of populations of refugees and displaced persons, and the assumptions underlying the estimate. The effects of varying the population distribution and of assuming different body sizes, physical activity levels, and proportions of breastfed infants are presented. The impact on the estimate of considering the energy requirements for catch-up growth and for cold environmental conditions is also reviewed. Chapter 3 provides a brief summary of the report and presents the committee's recommendations
Vaccines against malaria : hope in a gathering storm by Philip K Russell( )

10 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1,518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born too soon : the global action report on preterm birth by Fernando Althabe( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born too soon: the global action report on preterm birth provides the first-ever national, regional and global estimates of preterm birth. The report shows the extent to which preterm birth is on the rise in most countries, and is now the second leading cause of death globally for children under five, after pneumonia. Addressing preterm birth is now an urgent priority for reaching Millennium Development Goal 4, calling for the reduction of child deaths by two-thirds by 2015. This report shows that rapid change is possible and identifies priority actions for everyone. This inspiring report is a joint effort of almost 50 international, regional and national organizations, led by the March of Dimes, The Partnership for Maternal, Newborn & Child Health, Save the Children and the World Health Organization in support of the Every Woman Every Child effort, led by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. Born too soon proposes actions for policy, programs and research by all partners--from governments to NGOs to the business community -- that if acted upon, will substantially reduce the toll of preterm birth, especially in high-burden countries. The report contains a foreword by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and is accompanied by more than 30 new and expanded commitments to prevention and care of preterm birth, joining more than 200 existing commitments on the Every Woman Every Child web site

Global report on birth defects : the hidden toll of dying and disabled children by A. L Christianson( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Every year an estimated 7.9 million children -- 6 percent of total births worldwide -- are born with a serious birth defect of genetic or partially genetic origin. Additional hundreds of thousands more are born with serious birth defects of post-conception origin, including maternal exposure to environmental agents (teratogens) such as alcohol, rubella, syphilis, and iodine deficiency that can harm a developing fetus. Serious birth defects can be lethal. For those who survive, these disorders can cause lifelong mental, physical, auditory or visual disability. Data presented in this report show that at least 3.3 million children under five years of age die from birth defects each year and an estimated 3.2 million of those who survive may be disabled for life. Birth defects are a global problem, but their impact is particularly severe in middle- and low-income countries than in high-income countries because of sharp differences in maternal health and other significant risk factors, including poverty, a high percentage of older mothers, a greater frequency of consanguineous marriages and survival advantage against malaria for carriers of sickle cell, thalassemia, and glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency genes. This report identifies for the first time the sever, and previously hidden, toll of birth defects, highlighting the extent of this serious and vastly underappreciated public health problem. The accompanying database in Appendix B (separate file) provides the first systematic, country-by-country summary of annual births of infants with specific serious birth defects of genetic or partially genetic origin
