      Authors: Hrishikesh Munshi, Rahul K Gajbhiye
      Abstract: Asia Pacific Journal of Public Health, Ahead of Print.
      The International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples and the Tribal Pride Day hold significant importance in India, home to 106 million indigenous individuals. There are 705 recognized Scheduled Tribes (STs) in India that enrich the nation’s cultural fabric but experience disproportionately high morbidity and mortality. Historical injustice, geographic isolation, and cultural diversity deeply influence ST health causing disparities between indigenous and non-indigenous health indicators. To meet Sustainable Development Goals, India established the Ministry of Tribal Affairs and implemented various health initiatives. However, climate change, deforestation, limited education and employment opportunities, poverty, and under-representation pose a challenge. Empowerment, inclusive policies, community-specific targets, resource allocation, technology utilization, and multi-sectoral collaboration are vital for indigenous health. Achieving health equity for indigenous communities is a global commitment and moral imperative. By addressing historical wrongs, and working holistically, we must ensure that indigenous communities in India and beyond enjoy improved health and well-being.

  • Prevalence Trend and Clinical Profile of Leprosy Among the Indigenous
           Penan Community in Rural Baram, Sarawak, Malaysia: A Retrospective Study

      Authors: Maurice Steve Utap, Chirk Jenn Ng, Yew Kong Lee, Andrew Kiyu
      Abstract: Asia Pacific Journal of Public Health, Ahead of Print.
      In Malaysia, despite achieving leprosy-elimination status in 1994, leprosy remains a public health issue among the indigenous Penan community in Sarawak. This study aims to determine the prevalence trend and clinical profile of leprosy among the Penans in rural Baram, Sarawak, Malaysia. A retrospective records review was conducted on 10-year (2008-2018) time trend of annual prevalence rate and 5-year (2013-2018) Penan leprosy patient clinical profile. Out of the 257 new cases of leprosy reported in Sarawak, 42.8% were Penans, and 72.7% were from Baram. The annual Penan ethnic–specific prevalence rate ranged from 2.08 to 35.5/10 000. Forty-six cases were analyzed for clinical profile: There were more males, active case detection, and multibacillary leprosy. The prevalence trend of leprosy among the Penans in rural Baram exceeds recommended elimination targets. Majority of the cases were detected through active case detection, but cases were detected late. Interventions are needed to improve early diagnosis and detection to achieve elimination of leprosy.

      Authors: Asaad Ahmed Nafees, Yousaf Ali, Afreen Sadia, Natasha Shaukat, Muhammad Irfan, Zafar Fatmi, Iqbal Azam, Sara De Matteis, Peter Burney, Paul Cullinan
      Abstract: Asia Pacific Journal of Public Health, Ahead of Print.
      We piloted the development and implementation of a multifaceted intervention package for improving respiratory health among textile workers using a pre-post design at six mills in Karachi. The intervention, implemented following a baseline survey (n = 498), included health and safety training of workers and managers, promotion of cotton dust control measures, and the provision of facemasks. Follow-up surveys were conducted at 1, 6, and 12 months post-intervention. Knowledge, attitude, and practice (KAP) scores and respiratory symptoms were assessed through a questionnaire and spirometry was conducted. The intervention was provided to 230 workers and led to an improvement in KAP scores that was more likely among workers with a higher educational status, spinners, smokers, those with a permanent employment status, working in morning shifts, and with ⩾5 years of textile experience. We found the intervention acceptable and feasible in these textile mills henceforth, trials are required to determine its effectiveness.

      Authors: So-Yeong Kim
      Abstract: Asia Pacific Journal of Public Health, Ahead of Print.
      The COVID-19 pandemic has led to severe restrictions on society worldwide, and social restrictions can lead to poor physical and oral health. This study investigated the association between oral disease symptoms and changes in lifestyle due to COVID-19. A multivariate logistic regression analysis was used to analyze data from the 2021 Korea Youth Risk Behavior Survey (N = 54 848). It showed that most households’ economic conditions as “did not change at all” (adjusted odds ratio [aOR] = 1.00), “no change” (aOR = 1.10, 95% confidence interval [CI] = [1.04, 1.17]), “slightly worsened” (aOR = 1.21, 95% CI = [1.14, 1.28]), and “very worsened” (aOR = 1.24, 95% CI = [1.12, 1.37]). Information in a with “did not change at all” (aOR = 1.00), “no change” (aOR = 1.13, 95% CI = [1.07, 1.20]), “slightly worsened” (aOR = 1.15, 95% CI = [1.08, 1.24]), and “very worsened” (aOR = 1.18, 95% CI = [1.06, 1.30]) economic conditions experienced heightened gingival pain and bleeding. In conclusion, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused a change in lifestyle and worsened socioeconomic status. In addition, as lifestyle changed and socioeconomic status declined, symptoms of deteriorating dental health emerged.

      Abstract: Asia Pacific Journal of Public Health, Ahead of Print.
      This study examined quitting behavior and use of cessation aids (CAs) among Malaysian adult smokers aged ≥18 years (n = 1,047). Data were from the 2020 International Tobacco Control (ITC) Malaysia Survey were analyzed. A total of 79.9% of Malaysian smokers attempted to quit in the past 12 months and 85.2% intended to quit in the next 6 months. The most common CAs were e-cigarettes (ECs) (61.4%), medication/nicotine replacement therapies (NRTs; 51.0%), and printed materials (36.7%); the least common CA was infoline/quitline services (8.1%). Multivariable logistic regression analysis was performed to examine the association between sociodemographic variables and CAs use. Male smokers were more likely to use infoline/quitline services (adjusted odds ratio [aOR] = 3.27; P = .034). Malay smokers were more likely to use infoline/quitline services (aOR = 3.36; P = .002), ECs (aOR = 1.90; P = .004), printed materials (aOR = 1.79; P = .009), and in-person services (aOR = 1.75; P = .043). Most Malaysian smokers wanted to quit smoking. Furthermore, ECs were the most popular CAs, highlighting the need to assess the effectiveness of ECs for quitting smoking in Malaysia.

      Abstract: Asia Pacific Journal of Public Health, Ahead of Print.
      The diversity of protein food sources, animal and plant, may be a proxy measure of protein quality and adequate protein nutrition. A population-based sample of 1604 Malaysians aged ≥18 y completed one 24-h dietary recall and a new 29-item protein diversity indicator (PDI). Socio-demographic data were obtained by self-report. Mean total protein intakes were 75.2 g/d from 24-h recalls and 74.9 g/d from PDI. Protein diversity indicator–estimated protein intakes were 36.2% from meat and poultry, 8.8% from fish, 16.0% from eggs and dairy, and 39.0% from plants. Intakes of animal proteins varied with socioeconomic status and ethnicity and were associated with higher protein quality, defined as the adequacy of essential amino acids (EAAs) relative to protein requirements. Protein intakes and protein quality in Malaysia were generally adequate. Protein diversity indicator metrics can complement current methods of dietary assessment and may be useful for monitoring protein diversity and quality in other countries currently undergoing nutrition transition.

      Abstract: Asia Pacific Journal of Public Health, Ahead of Print.
      Monitoring SARS-CoV-2 antibody levels can provide insights into a person’s immunity to COVID-19 and inform decisions about vaccination and public health measures. Anti-S may be useful as an indicator of an effective immune response. Thus, we conducted this study that aims to determine the immune response of anti-S antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 for all the vaccine types over time among adult recipients in Malaysia and to determine the associated factors. This study was a cohort that recruited 2513 respondents aged 18 years and above from June 2021 to December 2021. Each participant was followed-up for 1-year period from the initial vaccine dose (baseline). We found that the anti-S antibody generally increased for all vaccine types and peaked at 2 weeks after the second dose vaccination, with Pfizer recipients having the highest median of 100 (100.00-100.00). During the third-month follow-up, the seropositivity of anti-S antibody and the median level decreased for all vaccines. We found that type of vaccines, comorbid status, infection, and booster status were significantly associated with the anti-S antibody level after 1 year.

      Abstract: Asia Pacific Journal of Public Health, Ahead of Print.
      This study established the clinical conclusiveness of Cochrane reviews (CRs) in family nursing. We extracted relevant characteristics of CRs to determine the methods of obtaining high-level evidence for family nursing. We performed a systematic search of all CRs on family nursing published in the Cochrane Library between January 2014 and April 2023. After screening 1212 titles and abstracts, we identified seven potentially relevant articles. Upon reviewing their full texts, we included six CRs with a total of 34 interventions. Of these, 22 (64.7%) interventions were conclusive and 12 (55%) were inconclusive. Thus, the number and percentage of conclusive CRs is lower in family nursing versus other fields.

      Authors: Hai Duong, Peter Chang
      Abstract: Asia Pacific Journal of Public Health, Ahead of Print.
      The study aimed to review general and specific health literacy studies in different countries in Asia to understand the progress of health literacy researches in the region. English-published studies with quantitative measurements of health literacy were collected through a systematic search in PubMed, Cochrane Library, Embase, and Web of Science, without publication dates limitation. A total of 156 articles on general health literacy, oral, mental, disease-specific health literacy, and eHealth literacy were collected. General health literacy was the most covered topic in 89 articles, followed by eHealth Literacy. Health literacy studies have been conducted in 16 countries and have been increasingly concerned in most of the countries in Asia. China had the largest number of articles, followed by Taiwan. Four studies had participants from more than one country. Education, age, health status, incomes, and living/residential area were significantly associated with health literacy levels in 156 studies, with the prevalence of 55.8%, 28.2%, 20.5%, 17.9%, and 10.9%, respectively. Lower health literacy was related to poorer health outcomes or lower quality of life in 71 studies.

      Authors: Rina Miyawaki, Ai Shibata, Kaori Ishii, Neville Owen, Koichiro Oka
      Abstract: Asia Pacific Journal of Public Health, Ahead of Print.
      Recent international public health guidelines now address reducing and breaking up time spent sitting (sedentary behavior). Japanese people spend considerable time sitting in workplaces and other contexts. With potential future public health guidelines in Japan, there is the need for greater public awareness of the importance of reducing sedentary time and of practical ways to do so. From the five major Japanese national newspapers, articles on sedentary behavior published between 2000 and 2021 were identified and coded for content analysis, including the main topic of the article, population group, sedentary behavior context or domain, health outcome, and solutions for reducing sedentary time. There were 53 articles identified, with sedentary behavior being the main topic in 22; workers as a population group appeared in 20 articles and workplaces as a domain in 22. More than 70% mentioned health influences, but fewer than 60% mentioned solutions. Further to informing the public about adverse health influences and consequences for workers and workplaces, there is also the need for improved coverage of the broader benefits of reducing sitting time, sedentary behavior among older adults and children, sitting in all aspects of daily life, and, importantly, considering public health guidelines and solutions for reducing prolonged sitting.

      Authors: Ilsu Park, Eunshil Yim, Minsook Lim, Jinhyung Lee
      Abstract: Asia Pacific Journal of Public Health, Ahead of Print.
      Despite the increasing economic burden of people with disabilities (PWDs) over time, the impact of physical activity on PWDs in the Republic of Korea (ROK) remains relatively unexplored. Thus, we examined the association between physical activity and disease risk, health care utilization, and expenditures for PWDs in the ROK. We considered gender differences across eight diseases using the National Health Insurance (NHI) panel data from 2013 to 2019. The sample consisted of PWDs who underwent regular medical check-ups and were aged 40 years and above, aligning with the NHI’s health screening program targeting beneficiaries in this age range. The final sample included 281 142 healthy PWDs. Among them, 44.1% (n = 124 061) engaged in physical activity, while the remaining 45.9% (n = 157 081) did not participate in any physical activity. The results show a negative association between physical activity and the incidence of various diseases among both genders. Health care utilization exhibited gender and disease-based variations, with men and women demonstrating higher utilization rates in the absence of physical activity. Health care expenditures also differed based on gender and disease, as men and women displayed higher costs in the absence of physical activity. Consequently, public policymakers should establish tailored activity programs for PWDs, adhering to activity guidelines designed for this population.

      Abstract: Asia Pacific Journal of Public Health, Ahead of Print.
      Nepal, a country with deeply ingrained patriarchal values and culture, has limited evidence regarding the practices of sex selection and sex-selective abortion. This study aims to investigate the attitudes and practices surrounding sex-selective abortion (SSA) and the factors associated with it. A cross-sectional study design was used to collect data from 320 women between the ages of 15 and 49, who had at least one child under the age of 5 and lived in the Bhaktapur district, Nepal. A total of 19.7% of the participants had undergone an abortion, with 39.6% of those being SSAs. Factors like women empowerment and preference for smaller family size are associated with women’s favorable attitude toward SSA. In multivariate analysis, women who faced pressure from their families to have a son and those who were aware of Nepal’s abortion laws were more likely to abort a female fetus.

      Abstract: Asia Pacific Journal of Public Health, Ahead of Print.
      Needle stick injury (NSI) is a common incidence in a health care facility which can have a great impact on the psychological status of a health care worker (HCW). In the present study, over a decade, 76 incidents of NSI were reported. Nurses (47.3%) were at high risk followed by doctors (28.94%). Recapping (30.2%) was the major activity associated with NSI. Percutaneous injury (97.3%) with a hollow bore needle to the fingers was the most common type of injury. Three (3.9%) of the sources were positive for HBV (Hepatitis B Virus), and one (1.3%) for HIV (Human immunodeficiency Virus). Postexposure prophylaxis was administered to eight (10.5%) HCWs with high-risk exposure. The incidence of NSI is low, as there exists an underreporting which cannot be denied. Following stringent universal precautions and adoption of safety-guided devices can reduce the rate of injury to a great extent. Regular training, monitoring, auditing, and adequate control modalities are the core strategies to reduce the incidence of NSI.

      Abstract: Asia Pacific Journal of Public Health, Ahead of Print.
      Previous studies supported the association between insomnia symptoms and suicidal ideation in patients with mental or psychological diseases. This study aimed to examine the associations between insomnia symptoms, general self-efficacy, and suicidal ideation among community-based adult population. Standardized questionnaire was distributed to 2051 community-dwelling adults in Lishui district of Jiangsu Province in China, to assess their socio-demographics, insomnia symptoms, general self-efficacy, and suicidal ideation. Multiple binary logistic regression or linear regression and mediation analysis with bootstrap resampling method were performed. Results showed that the weighted prevalence of lifetime suicidal ideation was 6.38%. Insomnia symptom was associated with higher odds of suicidal ideation after adjusting for sociodemographics and mental health status (odds ratio [OR] = 2.85, 95% confidence interval [CI] [1.66, 4.89]), and the OR of insomnia symptom with suicidal ideation decreased but remained significant after additionally adjusting for general self-efficacy (OR = 2.62, 95% CI [1.52, 4.53]). Participants with insomnia symptom were also significantly associated with lower general self-efficacy (β = −0.96; 95% CI [−1.70, −0.21]), whereas higher general self-efficacy was associated with a lower odds of suicidal ideation (OR = 0.92, 95% CI [0.87, 0.99]). In conclusion, general self-efficacy was associated with both insomnia symptom and suicidal ideation among the community-dwelling adult population.

      Abstract: Asia Pacific Journal of Public Health, Ahead of Print.
      We prioritized injury prevention and management programs, and research and development (R&D) projects using the Delphi method and analytic hierarchy process (AHP) for national plan. We summarized 21 programs and 31 R&D projects based on opinions collected in the opinion survey and brainstorming. Expert panel evaluated program and project relevance in the two Delphi rounds to make consensus. Total scores were calculated by adding criterion weights calculated through the AHP multiplied by the average of scores for each program and project. The top three programs were “Integrated Management System for Injury Data,” “Comprehensive Injury Surveillance System,” and “Transport System Improvement Program for Major Trauma.” The top three R&D projects were researches on “Identification of Vulnerable Workers Injuries to Strengthen Protections,” “Data Integration on Injury and Disability,” and “Using Public Health Big Data to Identify Injury Status and Risk Factors.” Experts highly rated the programs to improve injury surveillance system.

      Abstract: Asia Pacific Journal of Public Health, Ahead of Print.
      This article presents the preliminary findings from a five-day dietary record of 105 iTaukei (indigenous) Fijians in seven rural communities on remote islands, Fiji. Although the literature on noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) has discussed the potential reasons for the NCD increase in Fiji, research has relied on secondary data on the consumption patterns of limited food items. Hence, this research is one of the first in the country to analyze detailed dietary patterns. A high body mass index rate in the case study communities is observed. We also find that carbohydrate sources dominate the diet of the participants, while the consumption of protein sources (including canned products) and vegetables/fruits is limited. In addition, the diversity of food items is limited. Meanwhile, the major carbohydrate sources are locally produced cassava, although rice and flour products are also consumed. We suggest integrating these factors into the determination of the cause of the NCD increase.

      Commuting accidents account for 48% of work-related accidents in Malaysia. However, commuting accidents among health care workers are understudied and formally reported commuting accident numbers among nurses are likely to be an underestimate of actual numbers. This is the first study in Malaysia to attempt to establish the true incidence and associated factors for commuting accidents among nurses in Malaysia. A cross-sectional study was conducted to determine the true incidence of commuting accidents and its associated factors among public hospital nurses in Selangor, Malaysia. A validated and pilot-tested self-reported questionnaires were distributed to all nurses via an online-based platform. This study found a significant difference between the incidence of formally reported and self-reported commuting accidents from 2018 to 2022, with incidence rates ranging between 0.3 and 8.6 per 1000 nurses. Multivariable logistic regression showed that nurses working in district hospitals had lower odds to be involved in commuting accidents, while nurses working in clinical departments and traveling longer distances between home and workplaces had increased odds of commuting accidents.

      Abstract: Asia Pacific Journal of Public Health, Ahead of Print.
      Temporary workers’ health problems in China have raised concerns recently. This study aimed to assess the relationship between temporary employment and three health outcomes with gradient severity and explore mediating mechanisms. Data came from a national cross-sectional survey (China General Social Survey 2018). Compared with regular workers, temporary workers reported more frequent mood disorders (β = 0.197; 95% confidence interval [CI] = [0.093, 0.302]) and disturbance of daily activities (β = 0.132; 95% CI = [0.028, 0.237]), but no more inpatient treatment. Income poverty, subjective social status, and family relative socioeconomic status were significant mediators. The results suggest that temporary workers have higher general health risks, and economic deprivation is the main mechanism. Therefore, Chinese policymakers should provide more inclusive preventive health services beyond the existing health care system focused on critical illness to reduce the general health risks of grassroots workers.
