  • Making Online Outbreak Surveillance Work for all

    • Authors: Yanbai Andrea Wang; Michele Barry
      Abstract: Delayed detection and reporting in recent epidemics such as Zika and Ebola have brought renewed attention to outbreak surveillance. In particular, the use of digital technologies to crowd-source and interpret volumes of public information from the Internet for signs of outbreaks—so-called event-based Internet surveillance (EBIS)—has received great interest because of its potential for early detection. The National Academy of Medicine suggests that new information technology, which has increased surveillance capacity even in low-resource settings, be fully exploited.

           Students: A Case Report

    • Authors: Noa Krawczyk; Luz Claudio
      Abstract: The numbers and success of minority students in science and the health fields remain relatively low. This study presents the outcomes of a research training program as an illustrative case study. The Short-Term Training Program for Minority Students (STPMS) recruits underrepresented minority undergraduate and graduate students for immersion in research training. A total of 69 students participated in the STPMS between 1995 and 2012, and 59 of these completed our survey to determine the perceived impact of the program on the students' motivations and professional development.

    • Authors: Olaniyi Olayinka; Michele Kekeh, Manasi Sheth-Chandra, Muge Akpinar-Elci
      Abstract: The ability to synthesize and analyze massive amounts of data is critical to the success of organizations including global health. As countries become highly interconnected, increasing the risk for pandemics and outbreaks, the demand for big data is likely to increase. This requires a global health workforce that is trained in the effective use of big data. To assess implementation of big data training in global health, we conducted a pilot survey of members of the Consortium of Universities of Global Health.

  • New Findings on Child Marriage in Sub-Saharan Africa: a Synthesis of
           Recent Work Conducted by the International Center for Research on Women

    • Authors: Suzanne Petroni; Mara Steinhaus, Natacha Stevanovic Fenn, Kirsten Stoebenau, Amy Gregowski
      Abstract: Despite increasing global attention and commitments by countries to end the harmful practice of child marriage, each year, some 15 million girls marry before the age of 18. The preponderance of the evidence produced historically on child marriage comes from South Asia, where the vast majority of child brides live. Far less attention has been paid to child marriage in sub-Saharan Africa, where prevalence rates remain high. The International Center for Research on Women (ICRW) recently conducted research in Kenya, Senegal, Uganda and Zambia to contribute to greater understanding of the drivers of child marriage in each of these contexts.

  • Transculturalizing Diabetes Prevention in Latin America

    • Authors: Ramfis Nieto-Martínez; Juan P. González-Rivas, Pablo Aschner, Noël C. Barengo, Jeffrey I. Mechanick
      Abstract: Type 2 diabetes (T2D) imposes a heavy burden in developing countries, requiring effective primary prevention policies. Randomized clinical trials have demonstrated successful strategies in T2D prevention. However, translating these results to real life scenarios and adapting to ethno-cultural differences is a major challenge. Transculturalization allows incorporating cultural factors to diabetes prevention strategies to optimize implementation of clinical trials results. The purpose of this paper is to review the transcultural adaptations developed for T2D prevention in Latin America (LA).

      Abstract: BackgroundGlobalization has increased the demand for international experiences in medical education. International experiences improve medical knowledge, clinical skills, self-development, influence career objectives, and provide insights on ethical and societal issues. However, global health rotations can end up being no more than tourism if not structured to foster personal transformation and global citizenship.ObjectiveWe conducted a qualitative assessment of trainee-reported critical incidents to more deeply understand the impact of our global health experience on trainees.

    • Authors: Barbara Joyce
      Abstract: The term competency is not a new phenomenon in nursing literature. Competencies and competency based education provides the foundation and structure for community/public health practice. The Quad Council Public Health Nursing Competencies [QC PHN] were compiled by a coalition of four practice and educational organizations in nursing to help guide improvement in population, community/public health practice and baccalaureate nursing education. The Global Health Consortium has developed global health competencies for nurses and concurrently, interprofessional global health competencies were developed for health professionals by the Consortium of Universities for Global Health [CUGH].

  • On Essentiality and the World Health Organization’s Model List of
           Essential Medicines

    • Authors: Victoria A. Marks; Stephen R. Latham, Sandeep P. Kishore
      Abstract: In 1977, the World Health Organization (WHO) created its first Model List of Essential Medicines— a list designed to aid countries in determining which medicines to prioritize on their National Essential Medicines Lists . In classifying drugs as “essential,” the WHO has historically stressed drugs’ ability to meet priority health needs of populations and cost. The application of these criteria has, however, fluctuated dramatically over the years. In this paper we trace those fluctuations and argue the need for a more standardized and transparent set of procedures for choosing “essential” medicines.

  • Introduction of Interventional Radiology in a Resource-Limited Nation: Our
           Initial Rwanda Experiences

    • Authors: Jeffrey Forris Beecham Chick; Nikunj Rashmikant Chauhan
      Abstract: Due to improved health outcomes and decreased morbidity and mortality, medical imaging and intervention have supplanted more invasive surgical techniques for both diagnosis and therapy in more economically developed nations. In much of the developing world, however, surgery remains the mainstay of treatment, despite the lack of comprehensive surgical and postsurgical care. In a milieu of variable levels of medical education, low physician-to-population ratios, limited nursing care, medical supply shortages, and developing healthcare infrastructure, such as in Rwanda, minimally invasive interventional radiology may benefit patients and the healthcare system.

      Abstract: Clinic near Yerevan, Armenia. “Doctor, my boy fights with other children, he hits them for no reason. Can you help him to be less aggressive…?” As a visiting pediatric neurologist in Armenia, I've noticed that this kind of question comes up fairly often. The boy's family, doctors, and nurses have all gathered around to observe the visit. I ask this 8 year old, through an interpreter, if he is having any trouble following the rules. Looking downward with shame, he shakes his head “no.”

  • Children crossing streets: The cognitive task of pedestrians across

    • Authors: David C. Schwebel
      First page: 328
      Abstract: About 100,000 children die worldwide in pedestrian crashes, over 90% of them in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). However, most existing research on children’s ability to cross the street is conducted in high income countries (HICs). We discuss four ways pedestrian behavior in LMICs differs from that in HICs, influencing both children’s ability to cross streets safely and adult efforts to train children in pedestrian safety. First, in many LMICs one cannot simply wait for a traffic gap that is large enough to permit crossing at a typical walking pace.

  • Where We Fall Down: Tensions in Teaching Social Medicine and Global Health

    • Authors: Amy Finnegan; Michelle Morse, Marisa Nadas, Michael Westerhaus
      First page: 347
      Abstract: As global health interest has risen, so too has the relevance of education on the social determinants of health and health equity. Social medicine offers a particularly salient framework for educating on the social determinants of health, health disparities, and health equity. SocMed and EqualHealth, two unique but related organizations, offer annual global health courses in Uganda, Haiti, and the U.S., which train students to understand and respond to the social determinants of health through praxis, self-reflection and self-awareness, and building collaborative partnerships across difference.

  • Ethical Considerations When Sending Medical Trainees Abroad for Global
           Health Experiences

    • Authors: Sommer Aldulaimi; Victoria McCurry
      First page: 356
      Abstract: We set up a makeshift clinic in rural Honduras, and a line of patients now stretches down the street. There are two physicians, separated by a hanging tarp in a small room, trying to see every patient. A nurse looks at me, directing me to another area to begin seeing patients. As a medical student between my first and second year of training, I am terrified, but try to reassure myself—having some medical knowledge is better than none, right?

      Abstract: Current competencies in global health education largely reflect perspectives from high income countries (HICs). Consequently, there has been under-representation of the voices and perspectives of partners in low and middle income countries (LMICs) who supervise and mentor trainees engaged in short-term experiences in global health (STEGH).
