  • Optimizing Adolescent LARC: an Answer to Pregnancy Prevention

    • Authors: Lonna P. Gordon
      Abstract: Approximately 17 million adolescent women under the age of 20 give birth each year.1 The excellent news is that this number is decreasing. However, adolescent women still comprise 11% of all births worldwide.1 Complications of pregnancy and birth are the second leading causes of death for adolescent women worldwide.1 Adolescent pregnancy is also associated with pregnancy-induced hypertension, pre-eclampsia, and preterm labor.1,2 Additionally the children of adolescent women have lower birth weights, higher rates of infant mortality, and higher rates of developmental delays.

           Online Networks

    • Authors: Evelyn Eisenstein; Luiz Ary Messina
      Abstract: Adolescent health and medicine has been considered a specialized area within Pediatrics for the past 60 years, since Dr. Roswell Gallagher established the first program in Boston and Dr Gómez Ferrarotti independently established a program in Buenos Aires.1,2 Similar centers were founded soon after in Santiago de Chile; Mexico; and São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.3,4 The University of the State of Rio de Janeiro has been one of these pioneer centers for training medical students and professional staff with a multidisciplinary team of workers since 1972.

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder in Lower Socioeconomic Communities

    • Authors: Robert E. Accordino; Isobel Green, Angela Diaz
      Abstract: Given that reports place the costs of supporting individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) throughout their lifetime at a staggering $2.4 million, there is concerted interest in understanding the condition's epidemiological underpinnings.1 The understanding of autism's epidemiology has morphed considerably over time, moving from a belief that ASD is a condition of the affluent towards an increasing recognition that ASD is equally common in individuals of low socioeconomic status (SES) and, in fact, often goes underdiagnosed in that population.

  • Administration of Childhood Physical and Childhood Sexual Abuse Screens in
           Adolescents and Young Adults: a Literature Review

    • Authors: Angela Diaz; Ken Peake
      Abstract: Childhood physical and sexual abuse can have a negative impact on adolescents and young adults. Although effective interventions that can ameliorate both the short- and long-term negative impacts are available, many adolescent and young adult victims remain without help: They rarely self-identify as victims, and health care providers generally fail to inquire about a history of childhood abuse, especially in the absence of physical signs. The health care field lacks an understanding of effective methods for the identification of childhood abuse.

  • Strengthening Global Health Outreach Programs Through Pharmacy Services

    • Authors: Vidya Nair; Anthony J. Haberstroh, Marilyn Berko, Wayne Rapp, Brittany Fowler, Kirsten Redborg
      Abstract: In recent years, there has been a surge in global health outreach programs to address health care challenges and disparities in resource-poor countries.1-3 The scope of these outreach programs ranges from direct patient care services such as dental, surgical, and medical care, to large-scale public health programs affecting health care systems. Oftentimes medication formulary generation, pharmacy setup, workflow, and dismantling responsibilities are assumed by a variety of health care providers with other direct patient care functions.

      Abstract: Leishmaniasis is common in Colombia, negatively affecting health of military personnel active in endemic areas. The disease is transmitted by sandfly bites. Therefore, during duty use of long sleeve uniforms/clothes treated with permethrin and application of mosquito repellent are important personal preventive measures.

    • Authors: Lukia Namaganda Hamid; Olive Kobusingye, Sebastian Olikira Baine, Mayora Chrispus, Jacob Bentley
      Abstract: Approximately 80% of individuals with disability reside in low- and middle-income countries where Community based rehabilitation (CBR) has been utilized as a strategy to improve disability. However, data relating to disability severity among CBR beneficiaries inow-income countries like Uganda remain scarce, particularly at the community or district level. This study sought to describe severity of disability and associated factors for persons with physical disabilities receiving CBR services in the Kayunga district of Uganda.

    • Authors: Shalini Navale; Lameck Habumugisha, Cheryl Amoroso, Felix Sayinzoga, Neil Gupta, Lisa R. Hirschhorn
      Abstract: Rwanda has been a leader in the global effort to reduce infant mortality particularly in regions of sub-Saharan Africa. While rates have dropped, deaths still occur. We analyzed the results from a verbal social autopsy (VSA) study in two districts in eastern Rwanda to understand the care pathways and barriers taken by infant caregivers prior to the death of their infant.

  • The Importance of Research and Clinical Care for Adolescent and Young
           Adult Health and Well-Being

    • Authors: Anthony Salandy; Angela Diaz
      Abstract: Today, adolescents and young adults face tremendous choices and challenges with respect to their physical and mental health and well-being. Some of the issues they face are universal, while others place a disproportionate burden on certain demographic subgroups − based on familial, cultural, socioeconomic, and political circumstances. Their environments are shaped profoundly by the presence or absence of many factors, including family resources, community services, disease burden, and educational and employment opportunities.

  • Applying a Global Perspective to School-Based Health Centers in New York
           City

    • Authors: Janet B. Lee; Grisselle DeFrank, John Gaipa, Martha Arden
      Abstract: Since the 1960's, school-based health centers (SBHC) in the United States have emerged and grown with the mission of providing primary medical, reproductive and mental health services, as well as comprehensive health education, to all students who are enrolled in the participating school. SBHC's have demonstrated a unique ability to reduce barriers to medical care for underserved populations in New York City, including undocumented immigrants and those who are of lower income status.

      Abstract: China has experienced an increase in noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) in a short period compared to many countries. To address the burden of NCDs in China, it is important to learn about the progress that has been made in prevention and control of NCDs in China and worldwide, informed by opinions of stakeholders in different areas.

  • Children's Environmental Health Indicators for Low- and Middle-Income
           Countries in Asia

    • Authors: Eun Mi Jung; Eun Mee Kim, Minah Kang, Fiona Goldizen, Fiona Gore, Marie Noel Brune Drisse, Eunhee Ha
      Abstract: Given that low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) in Asia still have high child mortality rates, improved monitoring using children's environmental health indicators (CEHI) may help reduce preventable deaths by creating healthy environments. Thus, the aim of this study is to build a set of targeted CEHIs that can be applied in LMICs in Asia through the CEHI initiative using a common conceptual framework.

  • Estimating Effects of Temperature on Dengue Transmission in Colombian
           Cities

    • Authors: Víctor Hugo Peña-García; Omar Triana-Chávez, Sair Arboleda-Sánchez
      Abstract: Dengue fever is a viral disease that affects tropical and subtropical regions of the world. It is well known that processes related to virus transmission by mosquitoes are highly influenced by weather. Temperature has been described as one of the climatic variables that largely governs the development and survival of mosquito eggs as well as the survival of all insect stages. Previously, we have observed that high temperatures in the Colombian city of Riohacha negatively affect the establishment of DENV infection in mosquitoes; while in Bello and Villavicencio cities, which have lower average temperatures, DENV infection rates in mosquitoes are positively associated with a gradual increase in temperature.

      Abstract: Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are the leading cause of mortality worldwide and pose complex challenges in developing nations. Short-term medical trips, which often operate independently of government and pharmaceutical companies, are in a unique position to address NCDs in developing nations. In 2010, the Dominican Aid Society of Virginia shifted the focus of their semiannual clinic to addressing NCDs in Paraíso, Santo Domingo.

      Abstract: Research from high-income countries indicates that evidence-based parenting programme interventions can reduce child maltreatment. Much less is known, however, about how beneficiaries of these programmes experience this process of change. Understanding the process that brings about change in child maltreatment practices is essential to understanding intervention mechanisms of change. This is particularly important given the current scale-up of parenting programmes across LMIC countries.

           Trips: Three Questions for Global Health—3Qs4GH

    • Authors: William B. Ventres
      Abstract: Going on short-term experiences in global health (STEGHs) is now a common occurrence among students and trainees in the health professions.1 STEGHs, also known as short-term international service learning trips, are characterized by individuals or groups from high-income countries traveling to low- and middle-income countries for periods ranging from weeks to months to participate in service, educational activities, or research activities.2 When seasoned clinicians, educators, and investigators temporarily go abroad to practice, teach, and conduct studies, respectively, they too are participating in STEGHs—one is never too old or too experienced to avoid growing, hopefully with the development of wisdom in mind,3 while involved in professional activities in foreign settings.

    • 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.

      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.

           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.

      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: 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].

    • 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.

      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.

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
           nations

    • 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?

  • Visiting Trainees in Global Settings: Host and Partner Perspectives on
           Desirable Competencies

    • Authors: William Cherniak; Emily Latham, Barbara Astle, Geoffrey Anguyo, Tessa Beaunoir, Joel Buenaventura, Matthew DeCamp, Karla Diaz, Quentin Eichbaum, Marius Hedimbi, Cat Myser, Charles Nwobu, Katherine Standish, Jessica Evert
      First page: 359
      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).
