  • Spatial Variation in Excess Mortality in Mexico during the First 2 Years
           of the COVID-19 Pandemic

    • Abstract: Background. Excess mortality from all causes is a reliable indicator of the direct or indirect effect of the COVID-19 pandemic. This study aimed to estimate excess deaths in Mexico during the first 2 years of the COVID-19 pandemic and to examine the spatial and temporal variations in relative excess mortality at the subnational level. Materials and Methods. This ecological study was based on publicly available governmental data and compared 2020–2021 total deaths with the average number of deaths in 5 previous years. The relative excess mortality was then analyzed as a function of time (waves) and space (distribution maps). Results. Between January 1, 2020 and December 31, 2021, Mexico recorded 2,136,611 deaths out of 1,385,240 expected deaths, representing 751,371 excess deaths (95% CI: 709,948.267–792,793.732). During this period, we identified three waves of excess deaths, the second being the most severe, with 109,846 more deaths than expected. When examining each wave, spatial variation in relative excess mortality was identified, with all 32 states experiencing more deaths than expected (values > 0%). However, in Mexico City, Tlaxcala and Queretaro recorded values greater than 100% at different times. Conclusions. During the first 2 years of the COVID-19 pandemic (2020–2021), the number of deaths increased excessively in the 32 states. The spatial variation in relative excess mortality in each observed wave demonstrated that the response to the effects of the pandemic in Mexico differed due to various factors, such as prevention measures against COVID-19, the beginning of the vaccination campaign, and pandemic fatigue which caused a certain relaxation and therefore a return of tourism, mainly in coastal areas. Therefore, it is necessary to implement equitable policies for the care of particularly affected areas.

  • Plasma Inflammatory Biomarkers Indicative of Aging and Overweight in
           Brazilian Women

    • Abstract: Immunosenescence is a process of immune system remodeling based on the natural aging process. Factors such as diet, physical exercise, mental health, and genetic/metabolic conditions can influence the development of age-related inflammation. In senescence, overweight and obesity are silent inflammatory conditions that predispose individuals to cardiovascular diseases and other comorbidities. This study aimed to evaluate the concentration of obesity-related plasma biomarkers (creatine kinase (CK), CXCL16, IL-33, leptin, and resistin) in clinically stable women of different ages and weights. A cross-sectional study was conducted in Minas Gerais State, Brazil, involving 54 women (aged 20–85 years), assisted by the Brazilian Public Health Service. Socioeconomic and anthropometric parameters were assessed, and plasma levels of CK, CXCL16, IL-33, leptin, and resistin were measured using immunological and biochemical assays. Out of the total study participants, 54 women (mean age 44.9 years) were overweight and presented high plasma levels of CK, CXCL16, IL-33, and leptin. Specifically, plasma CK levels were similar in adults, middle-aged, and elderly women, but there was an increase in its release associated with overweight in adults and elderly women. Plasma IL-33, CXCL16, and resistin were reduced in elderly clinically stable women but not leptin. However, when volunteers were grouped according to body mass index, CXCL16, IL-33, and leptin were elevated and associated with overweight. Together, plasma levels of CK, CXCL16, IL-33, and leptin were identified as promising indicators of immunosenescence, regardless of weight parameters. Moreover, CXCL16 levels evaluated as an isolated parameter were a stronger indicator of obesity, regardless of aging.

  • Social Support and Psychological Distress of Women in Saudi Arabia: A
           Nationwide Cross-Sectional Study

    • Abstract: Background. Social support is an important determinant of the psychological health of women. Aim. To examine social support and its association with psychological distress among women in Saudi Arabia. Materials and Methods. Data were gathered between February and July 2023, using a cross-sectional, anonymous, online survey of women in Saudi Arabia above the age of 18 (n = 414). The multidimensional scale of perceived social support was utilized to gauge social support. The brief symptom rating scale, a 5-item measure, was used to measure psychological distress. Associations between social support and psychological distress were determined using linear regression considering potential covariates. Results. Results show high levels of psychological distress, with 38.1% of respondents scoring moderate to severe levels of psychological distress. The most commonly reported symptoms of distress were “feeling tense or high-strung” and “feeling easily annoyed or irritated,” with 39.4% and 34.5%, respectively, of respondents experiencing these symptoms moderately to extremely. Moderately high levels of social support were reported, with 77.1% of participants agreeing or strongly agreeing with the “my family really tries to help me” statement. Family/interpersonal relationships, however, were simultaneously the most commonly reported stressor over the past 3 years (59.4%). Unadjusted and adjusted analyses show social support was negatively correlated with psychological distress (β = −0.284, ; adjusted β = −0.145, p = 0.042), indicating higher levels of social support were correlated with reduced psychological distress. Conclusions. Findings indicate moderate-to-high levels of psychological distress as well as social support and an inverse association between them. This information can be used to inform intervention development. To better understand these domains as they relate to psychological distress, future research is warranted.

  • Compliance Status of Smoke-Free Public Places Law in Nepal

    • Abstract: Background. The tobacco epidemic is one of the biggest public health threats the world has ever faced, killing around 8 million people a year. The tobacco control program has been one of the priority programs in Nepal but still satisfactory results have not been achieved yet. The main objective of this study was to assess the tobacco smoke-free law compliance in public places of the provincial headquarters of Nepal. Materials and Methods. A cross-sectional observational study was conducted in 2019 in 560 public places of seven provincial headquarters of Nepal. Convinent samples were collected from at least three different clusters (wards) of each city. Indoor and outdoor locations of public places were observed. Observation tool was adopted from the Guide for Conducting Compliance Studies (John Hopkins School of Public Health). Data were entered in Epi Datav3.1, and analysis was done using IBM SPSS 26. Results. This study showed less use of no-tobacco signage which was 32% in the indoor areas and 13% in the outdoor areas in public places but they were placed in visible areas. Tobacco use in public places is still prevalent and it was higher (40%) in outdoor of public places. Three-fourths (76%) of public places was observed for buying and selling tobacco products within their 100 m premises. Tourist hotels, public toilets, and bus stops/ticket counters had low tobacco law compliance both in indoor and outdoor areas. Though public vehicles and cinema halls had high tobacco law compliance in indoor areas, law compliance in outdoor areas was low. Province-wise comparison showed that there was a similar pattern of tobacco law compliance in the indoor areas but outdoor law compliance was low in Madesh, Bagmati, and Karnali province. Conclusion. It is evident that while progress has been made in certain aspects of tobacco law compliance, there remains a compelling need for comprehensive and targeted interventions to ensure adherence to laws in public places across the country.

  • Impact of Socioeconomic Factors and Health Insurance Coverage on
           Out-of-Pocket Health Expenditure among Ghanaian Women: Implications for
           Health Financing Policy

    • Abstract: Background. The cost of health financing is an age-long social challenge in resource-constrained settings. Out-of-pocket (OOP) health spending adversely affects maternal healthcare provisions and use, making health insurance one of the most effective social interventions. Objective. The purpose of this research was to study the effect of OOP health expenditure on socioeconomic factors and health insurance coverage among Ghanaian women. Materials and Methods. Secondary statistical data pulled out from Ghana Demographic and Health Survey (GDHS)—2014 was investigated. A sample of 9,396 women whose ages ranged from 15 to 49 years was studied. We used marginal predictive model to examine the interaction effect between socioeconomic factors and health insurance coverage on OOP health expenditure. The significance level was determined at 5%. Results. Overall, about 41.9% (95% CI: 39.4%−44.4%) of Ghanaian women reported OOP health expenditure for drugs and services. Amongst those covered by health insurance, this was 37.9% (95% CI: 35.3%−44.4%). The marginal interaction effects of OOP health expenditure were higher for women in the lowest neighborhood socioeconomic disadvantage group (42.6%) than those in the highest neighborhood socioeconomic disadvantage group (26.0%) who were covered by health insurance. In addition, the marginal interaction effects of OOP health expenditure were found to be greater among women who had higher education (43.8%) compared with those who had no formal education (34.0%) who were covered by health insurance. Furthermore, the marginal interaction effects of OOP health expenditure were higher for rural (39.0%), than their urban counterpart (36.6.0%) who were under the covering of health insurance. Conclusion. There is a gap in health insurance coverage, which leads to increased OOP health expenditure. The OOP health expenditure effect was more concentrated among high socioeconomic women with health insurance. The healthcare system’s stakeholders should implement policies aimed at eliminating OOP health expenditure for maternal health services.

  • Infant and Young Child Feeding (IYCF) Practices in Rural and Urban Regions
           of Indonesia

    • Abstract: Background. The global strategy on infant and child feeding recommends the best pattern of feeding for infants and young child feeding (IYCF) from birth to 24 months. Practices of proper feeding of children up to 2 years of age contribute to a child’s survival, growth, and development because they can prevent micronutrient deficiencies, morbidity, and obesity in later life. This study aims to determine the risk factors for the failure of IYCF practice in urban and rural Indonesia. Materials and Methods. The study used Indonesia Demographic and Health Survey (IDHS) 2017 data with a cross-sectional research design. The sampling technique used systematic probability proportional to size sampling. The number of samples was 4,869 children consisting of 2,424 children in urban and 2,445 children in rural. Bivariate analysis using chi-square test. Multivariate analysis using multivariate logistic regression. Results. The study found that most of the children in urban (79.3%) and rural (97.2%) did not practice IYCF under the recommendations. There is a difference in the proportion of IYCF practices between urban and rural areas (). The risk factors for the failure of IYCF practice in urban areas are socioeconomic, maternal age, and age at first marriage. The poorest socioeconomic is at risk of 2.4 times, maternal age > 35 years are at risk of 1.5 times, age at first marriage is less than 21 years at risk of 2.1 times carrying out IYCF practices not according to recommendations compared to the comparison group. The risk factors for the failure of IYCF practice in rural are socioeconomic, maternal education, quantity, and quality of antenatal care (ANC). The poorest socioeconomic is at risk of 2.1 times, mothers with primary education are at 1.5 times, the quantity of ANC is not good at risk at 1.9 times, the quality of ANC is not good risk at 1.5 times practicing IYCF is not according to the recommendations compared to the comparison group. Conclusion. The practice of IYCF in Indonesia starting from giving early breastfeeding initiation, exclusive breastfeeding, and complementary feeding according to recommendations is still low. The priority of IYCF intervention through education and assistance to pregnant women needs to be a sustainable program.

  • Influencing Factor on School-Age Children’s Holistic Health Care Who
           Using Online Media by Working-Age Parents in Northeast Thailand

    • Abstract: Background. Thailand tends to have more access to online media. In 2020, the northeastern region had the highest usage rate. Especially school-age children have the highest usage rate. If misused for a long time, the consequences can adversely affect health in many aspects. Their parents should closely supervise and monitor them for this health problem. However, parents have limitations in caring because they have to work a lot. The aim was to study factors that influence working-age parents in holistic health care (HHC) of school-age children using online media in northeast Thailand. Materials and Methods. This research was a descriptive study, with a sample of parent amount 222. The questionnaire performed an item-objective congruence (IOC) = 0.60–1.00, the content validity index (CVI) = 0.90, and the Cronbach’s alpha coefficient was 0.93. The data collected then include the characteristics, use of online media, health problems, and health care. Finally, data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, frequency, percentage, standard deviation, and multiple regressions. Result. The results of the study are factors that influenced HHC with statistical significance () including the child’s gender, the child’s age, the child’s class, the type of internet, activities, the device, and the device owner. In addition, it was holistic health problems of school-age children such as physical, emotional, social, and intellectual. Importantly, these could explain the variation for HHC of 21.2% (adjusted R2 = 0.212), and the standard error in the model estimation was 25.06 (SEE = 25.06). Conclusion. Factors that influence school-age children’s health care are beneficial to preventing and solving health problems by using online media. Parents or health care professionals can use it as a guide to develop more effective health care strategies and policies. Ultimately, it will help to promote better health for children in an ever-changing digital world.

  • Copper Poisoning with Emphasis on Its Clinical Manifestations and
           Treatment of Intoxication

    • Abstract: Background. Copper is an essential trace element found in the human body in an oxidized (Cu II) and reduced (Cu I) form. It plays a crucial role in the integrity and function of proteins and enzymes. Short-term and long-term exposure to copper can result in harmful effects and lead to clinical manifestations in multiple bodily systems, including the gastrointestinal tract, liver, kidneys, eyes, respiratory, cardiovascular, central nervous, endocrine, and hematopoietic systems. Objective. The purpose of this study is the importance of early recognition and diagnosis of copper poisoning immediate and necessary measures and the use of chelators. Materials and Methods. In this review article, authors from Pub Med, Scopus, and a toxicologic emergencies reference book from 1996 to 2024 are used. Result. An excessive increase in copper level produces reactive oxygen species that can cause lipid peroxidation in cell membranes, direct oxidation of proteins, and the breakdown of DNA and RNA molecules. All of these can generally be reasons for cell death. Conclusion. Assessing levels of copper in whole blood, free serum copper, 24-hr urine copper, liver biopsy for copper concentration, and ceruloplasmin play a crucial role in the diagnosis. The blood copper concentration is directly related to the severity of poisoning. Treatment for copper poisoning typically involves removing the source of exposure and administering medications to help remove the excess copper from the body. Supportive care for copper intoxication usually includes managing vomiting, correcting fluids and electrolytes, and stabilizing vital signs. Chelators like D-penicillamine, succimer, trientine, tetrathiomolybdate, and PBT-2 have been utilized in treatment.

  • Ten Years of Dengue (2013–2022): Epidemiology and Predictors of
           Outbreaks in Sarawak

    • Abstract: Dengue is a major public health problem in Sarawak, Malaysia. Since 2011, the Ministry of Health of Malaysia has created an electronic database (e-Dengue) for all dengue cases in Malaysia. This database of cases includes socio-demographic and locality data, clinical symptoms and signs, and results from rapid dengue assays. This study analyses data extracted from this database to describe the epidemiology and determine which factors are more likely to indicate or predict an outbreak of dengue. A total of 14,020 cases from 2013 to 2022 were extracted, with 4,636 cases reported from outbreaks. The highest incidence was 112.22 per 100,000 population in 2016, with 2,773 cases. Over this period, there were 37 deaths, with the highest in 2016 with seven deaths. The case fatality rate ranged from 0.12% to 0.75%. Predictors of outbreaks include younger age (0.984 (0.980–0.989)), female (1.584 (1.387–1.821)), cases from rural areas (0.398 (0.346–0.458)), unemployed (1.179 (1.005–1.383)), students (1.450 (1.163–1.808)). For clinical markers, rash (1.315 (1.056–1.638)) and NS1 antigen test positivity (3.474 (2.952–4.088)) were a predictor of outbreaks, while diarrhoea (0.160 (0.055–0.465)) was a predictor for single cases. Although rainfall, climate change, and population density are known predictors of dengue, socio-demographic factors, clinical signs, and NS1 antigen are additional predictors of dengue that will allow for early detection and control.

  • Exploring Caregivers’ Perceptions on the Impact of Nyaope and Alcohol
           Use on Tuberculosis Treatment Adherence in Limpopo Province, South Africa:
           A Qualitative Investigation

    • Abstract: Background. Adherence to tuberculosis (TB) treatment is essential for curing the disease and for preventing drug resistance. Most studies report that substance abuse is associated with high discontinuation of TB treatment, which is a barrier to the effective management of the TB control and prevention program. Insufficient data exist on the effects of the nyaope drug use on TB treatment adherence among patients with the disease. Hence, the current study aimed to qualitatively explore the perceptions of caregivers regarding the influence of nyaope and alcohol use on tuberculosis treatment adherence among tuberculosis patients in Limpopo Province, South Africa. Materials and Methods. Qualitative, exploratory and descriptive designs were used. The nonprobability purposive sampling method was used to select eight TB focal nurse and eight facility operational managers from eight selected community health centers in Limpopo Province. Data were collected through in-depth interviews, and it was guided by data saturation. Data were analyzed using Colaizzi’s method. Trustworthiness was ensured, and ethical considerations were observed in the study. Results. The study results of the study show four individual major themes that emerged from the data analysis: (1) challenges in treatment adherence; (2) disruption of follow-up and DOT support systems; (3) reluctance toward social support; and (4) resistance to health educational and counseling interventions. Conclusion. The study reveals that nyaope and alcohol use significantly impede TB treatment adherence. In response, the conclusion advocates for integrating services within healthcare facilities to enhance TB treatment effectiveness. This proposed integration aims to create a cohesive and interconnected healthcare system capable of identifying, supporting, and treating TB patients with substance abuse issues more effectively. The study recommends incorporating the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test questionnaire for all newly diagnosed TB patients. This proactive measure will enable early identification of individuals who may be experiencing harmful or hazardous alcohol use. Following the identification process, it is advisable to offer further counseling to those in need and link them to a deaddiction center for specialized support. This approach not only aids in the comprehensive care of TB patients but also addresses underlying issues that could potentially hinder their treatment adherence and overall recovery.

  • Prevalence and Associated Factors of Overweight and Obesity among Primary
           School Children Aged 7–17 Years in Urban Mbarara, Uganda

    • Abstract: Globally, overweight and obesity among children have been acknowledged as a growing public health concern. In sub-Saharan Africa, the prevalence of overweight and obesity is high. In Uganda, there is a significant burden of overweight and obesity. This study was conducted to determine the prevalence and associated factors that influence overweight and obesity among primary school children in Southwestern Uganda. A cross-sectional study utilized a self-administered questionnaire and anthropometric tools to collect data. A three-stage sampling procedure was used to select four schools that participated in this study. A total of 422 children participated in our study. Participant’s weight and height were measured using SECA Scale, Model 885, and a wall-mounted stadiometer, respectively. Data were analyzed using STATA v11.0. The prevalence of overweight/obesity was descriptively analyzed. Associated factors were determined using bivariate and multivariate analysis. Findings revealed that 54.3% of participants were walking to school compared to 45.7% that were cycling/bicycling and 76.3% playing and doing household chores as opposed to 23.7% that spent their leisure time through reading and watching TV, 74.2% took more than two meals per day, and 79.4% often took vegetables and fruits compared to 20.6% that took them most of the time. The study found an overall prevalence of 20% for overweight/obesity. There was a statistical association between overweight/obesity and ownership of residence (O.R.: 0.4, 95% C.I.: 0.2–0.8), modes of transport (O.R.: 8.2, 95% C.I.: 3.4–20.0), leisure time activities (O.R.: 0.4, 95% C.I.: 0.2–0.7), frequency of consuming vegetables and fruits (O.R.: 2.8, 95% C.I.: 1.4–5.5), and the type of school attended (O.R.: 0.2, 95% C.I.: 0.1–0.4). However, only the mode of transport (A.O.R.: 5.0, 95% C.I.: 1.9–13.0) was independently associated with overweight/obesity on multivariate logistic regression analysis. Girls who participated in our study were more overweight than boys. Overweight/obesity existed more in private schools than public schools. Modes of transport were only found to be strongly associated with overweight/obesity. There is a need to establish evidence-based strategies to inform policy on prevention of childhood overweight/obesity.

  • Public Health Evaluation of COVID-19 Vaccine Acceptability and Health
           Behaviors in South Africa: Past, Current, and Future Implications
           (2020–2022)

    • Abstract: South Africa is facing a high burden of COVID-19 pandemic with low-vaccine coverage in the African Region. We aimed to investigate the temporal changes and impacts in health behaviors on vaccine acceptability in pre-, during-, and post-vaccine roll-out periods. In this cross-sectional study, we used the combined data from the nationally conducted “COVID-19 Vaccine Surveys (CVACS)” (May 2020–February/March 2022). Semiparametric regression models were used to capture the nonlinear association between the vaccine acceptability and health behaviors. Our study provided compelling evidence for a substantial decline in COVID-19 vaccine trust which shifted from 62%–70% to 26%–42% overtime. Participants younger than 40 years of age were less likely to receive the vaccine before it became available. However, this association changed in the postvaccine period with significant uptake in vaccine acceptance in younger groups. South Africans who identified themselves as black were more likely to intend to receive (aORs ranged: 1.93−3.60) and to trust the vaccine’s safety and efficacy (aORs ranged:1.79−1.23) in all time periods. “Mask wearing” and “frequent hand washing” were the most commonly reported behaviors. Given the lower rates of vaccine acceptability and a reduction in preventative health behaviors, monitoring the spread of infections is crucial and may have significant clinical and epidemiological implications.

  • Comprehensive Assessment of Health Impacts from Exposure to Nonionizing
           Radiation for Healthcare Practitioners Working with MRI and Ultrasound

    • Abstract: Background. It is necessary to monitor the health disorders of healthcare practitioners exposed to a complex of occupational hazards to optimize their activities and substantiation of preventive health measures. The purpose of the study was the hygienic assessment of occupational hazards, analysis of data on self-assessment of the state of health (SASH questionnaire) among healthcare practitioners (MRI diagnostics specialists, ultrasound diagnostics specialists, and ophthalmologists, as a control group) exposed to nonionizing radiation, ultrasound, and noise. Materials and Methods. An analysis of hygienic parameters of the working environment (workplace) and questionnaire data of healthcare practitioners were carried out. The number of illnesses and absences from work, the level of quality of life, the level of depression, and the self-assessment of the state of health were evaluated according to the questionnaire. Results. An analysis of workloads made it possible to rank the severity and intensity of labor. Health disorders (according to the self-assessment of the state of health), the number of absences from work due to illness, an increase in complaints and level of depression, and a decrease in the level of quality of life were corresponded to the severity of labor. It was revealed that healthcare practitioners were exposed to a number of hazards during their work (above the threshold limit value (TLV)), which caused an increase in health disorders. Conclusions. During the organization of workplace ergonomics and implementation of preventive measures directed to maintaining health and early diagnosis of diseases, one should take into account the hygienic indicators of the working environment that exceed TLV, the results of self-assessment of the state of health (complaints) and morbidity of healthcare practitioners, the level of quality of life and the level of depression.

  • Enhancing Awareness of Physical Activity Guidelines among Saudi College
           Students: The 150 Minutes Program

    • Abstract: Objective. This study evaluates the effectiveness of the “150 Minutes Program” in increasing awareness and fostering positive behavior changes regarding recommended physical activity guidelines among Saudi college students. Initiated as part of the national “Sports for All Challenge,” this program targets college students to improve their understanding of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ physical activity guidelines. Methods. Engaging over 250 Saudi college students from 17 student groups across the United States, the program employs two intervention strategies: a general awareness campaign and the application of physical activity guidelines tailored to the Saudi student community. The study assesses the program’s impact through pre-/post-surveys, evaluating changes in participants’ awareness levels and physical activity behaviors. Results. A total of 110 participants completed either the presurvey (n = 35) or postsurvey (n = 75). Results indicate a significant rise in participants’ awareness of recommended physical activity guidelines, increasing from an initial 4% to 22.9%. Postprogram surveys reveal positive shifts in physical activity behaviors, with 51.4% of participants meeting adult physical activity guidelines, compared to 40% before the program. The average physical activity levels also demonstrated an increase. Conclusion. The 150 Minutes Program proves effective not only in enhancing awareness but also in instigating positive physical activity behavior changes among Saudi college students. The study contributes valuable insights to the evolving landscape of physical activity interventions within college populations, emphasizing the need for targeted programs, and collaborations with student organizations to ensure sustained impact and scalability.

  • Psychometric Validation of the Persian Version of Multidimensional Health
           Locus of Control Scale (MHLC-C) for Menopausal Women

    • Abstract: Background. The Health Locus of Control (HLC) serves as a mediator between an individual’s behaviors and health status, influenced by various cultural, environmental, and situational factors. Its measurement reflects health beliefs and attitudes, ultimately leading to healthy behaviors. Menopause is a significant phenomenon in women’s lives, often resulting in a wide range of symptoms and health issues. Therefore, the perception of HLC plays a crucial role in promoting healthy behaviors and managing menopausal symptoms. This study aimed to assess the validity and reliability of the Persian version of the short form Multidimensional Health Locus of Control Scale (MHLC) in Iranian menopausal women and explore its interrelationships. Methods. A cross-sectional study was conducted with 271 menopausal women from September to November 2023. Psychometric properties such as construct validity (confirmed through confirmatory factor analysis), convergent validity (evaluated using average variance extracted), and internal consistency (assessed by Cronbach’s alpha, composite reliability and rho_A factor) were examined. Discriminant validity was determined using the Fornell–Larcker criterion. Reliability was further established through Cronbach’s alpha and McDonald’s Omega coefficients. The predictive relevance of the model and associations between constructs were analyzed using various statistical measures. Data analysis was conducted using SPSS v.27 and Smart PLS 3.0 software. Limitations of this study include that it was conducted in urban health centers, only women with at least primary education were included, and reliance on self-reported data. Results. The initial stage of construct validity involved the Kolmogorov–Smirnov test, with confirmatory factor analysis demonstrating a good model fit. Significant correlations were found between internal health control and factors related to doctors and other people, indicating that internal health control directly influences these factors in managing menopausal symptoms and health problems. Cronbach’s alpha and McDonald’s Omega coefficients for the 13-item MHLC-C scale were satisfactory (0.81 and 0.72, respectively). Conclusions. The Persian version of the 13-item MHLC-C has been validated as a reliable tool for assessing the health locus of control in Iranian menopausal women. Internal health control was found to significantly impact perceptions related to doctors and other people, highlighting its importance in managing menopausal symptoms effectively.

  • Mediating Role of Environmental Awareness for the Nexus between Perceived
           Risks of COVID-19 Pandemic and Use of Sustainable Transportation: Evidence
           from Urban Passengers in Ethiopia, 2022

    • Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic has been a global pandemic and a threat to humankind. In addition to many cases of illness and millions of deaths, the economy and social interactions have suffered. It remarkably declined overall transportation and mobility in most countries. However, given that there is a gap between environmental sustainability awareness and what is practiced by transport users, the goal of this study was to empirically assess the mediating role of environmental awareness in the casual links between perceived risks of the COVID-19 pandemic and ecologically sustainable transportation use. The study identified relevant theories, conceptual frameworks, and variables. Mixed research and surveys were carried out on the public and private transport service users in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Comparative analysis, structural equation modeling, and structural causal model framework were applied to estimate casual relationships among variables and test the hypotheses. Despite the rising of human-caused climate change denial beliefs, findings revealed that a large part of the causes of the COVID-19 pandemic are climate change, biodiversity misuse, and wildlife degradation, all of which are environmental in nature and anthropogenic. People perceived the COVID-19 pandemic as more of a risk to others than to themselves, and climate change or global warming has become a danger to humanity, mainly during the pandemic. Accordingly, the pandemic risks increased people’s mainly passengers’ awareness of the environment, and this caused them to give greater consideration to the environmentally attractiveness of the transport they use. This, in turn, encouraged people to take personal climate-friendly measures and pro-environmental behavior, mainly greater willingness to use public transportation than private transportation during the COVID-19 pandemic than before. Thus, the total effect of the COVID-19 pandemic anxiety on the use of public transportation is completely mediated by enhanced environmental awareness. These are evidence that COVID-19 has strengthened environmental awareness and promoted sustainable action in the context of the transportation industry of developing countries. The study informs that urban planning and policy need to consider pandemic-sensitive and innovative public health and transport systems, integrated public health education, one health approach, and smart city. It suggests that maintaining the environmental awareness of societies and encouraging them to mitigate climate change through urgent climate actions and modal shifts to the use of sustainable urban transport such as public transportation.

  • Use of a Food Frequency Questionnaire for the Estimation of Gut Microbiota
           Composition Based on Dietary Patterns and Its Association with Irritable
           Bowel Syndrome Symptoms in the Lebanese Adult Population: A
           Cross-Sectional Study

    • Abstract: Gut microbiome analysis is costly and poses a significant challenge for determining the gut microbiota composition to facilitate the adoption of personalized nutritional interventions. Emerging evidence suggests dysbiosis as a contributor to irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), but the results remain uncertain. Moreover, IBS prevalence is becoming a public health problem in the adult Lebanese population. This study aimed at estimating the gut microbiota’s composition using a Food Frequency Questionnaire (FFQ) and exploring its correlation with IBS among Lebanese adults. A cross-sectional study was conducted for 388 adults during the summer 2023. An online questionnaire collected information about sociodemographic characteristics, anthropometric measures, health status, and dietary habits through a semiquantitative FFQ. We observed the influence of Western diet among the three patterns that were identified. Participants were clustered into two groups based on their estimated (poor or good) microbiota composition, EPMC and EGMC, respectively. We observed a significant inverse relationship between IBS symptoms and EGMC. Participants experiencing IBS symptoms were less likely to exhibit a good gut microbiota compared to those without any IBS symptoms (AOR = 0.614, 95% CI (0.402–0.937), ), and a higher adherence to the Mediterranean diet was significantly associated with lower odds of having IBS symptoms (AOR = 0.786, 95% CI (0.635–0.973), ). Our study revealed a dietary shift toward a more Westernized pattern among Lebanese adults who experienced symptoms of IBS. FFQ may be used to estimate the gut microbiota to provide customized nutritional therapy for patients suffering from IBS.

  • Changes in the Step Counts of University Students Living in Hokkaido
           during the COVID-19 Pandemic

    • Abstract: Background. Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) countermeasures, such as lockdowns, have been reported to reduce people’s physical activity levels. Purpose. To determine changes in the step counts among university students before and after the COVID-19 pandemic and identify the risk factors for decreased step counts. Materials and Methods. An online questionnaire was sent by e-mail to 1,851 students enrolled in a university in Hokkaido, Japan; of these, 127 participated. The questionnaire items were average monthly step counts from October 2019 to March 2022, type of residence, part-time job, club activities, personal demographics, height, and weight. The average step counts in October/November 2019 (before the pandemic) were used as the baseline, and changes in step counts were studied at five time points (every 6 months): April/May 2020 (first state of emergency declared), October/November 2020 (period of contained infection), April/May 2021 (second state of emergency declared), and October/November 2021 (period of contained infection). We also examined changes in the number of steps due to different lifestyle factors and factors that contributed to decreased step counts during the study period. Results. Significantly lower step counts than those at baseline were observed in April/May 2020 and April/May 2021; however, there was no significant difference in October/November 2020 and October/November 2021 compared with baseline. In addition, significantly lower step counts were observed in April/May 2020 than in April/May 2021. The risk of decreased step counts was significantly associated with nonparticipation in club activities, even after adjustment for other variables. Conclusion. The step counts of university students decreased significantly during the declaration of a state of emergency and recovered to pre-pandemic levels after the declaration was lifted. Lifestyle status revealed differences in the number of steps taken before and after the pandemic. Nonparticipation in club activities was identified as a major risk factor for a decrease in step counts.

  • Psycho-Oncological Counselling for Mental Health in South Australians with
           Cancer

    • Abstract: This study aimed to understand clients’ perceptions of psycho-oncological counselling service effectiveness according to psychosocial outcomes and meeting client support needs and expectations. Clients were recruited opt-in during regular service provision (n = 28). Psychological distress, anxiety, and depression symptoms were assessed prior to and on completion of psycho-oncological counselling sessions. Clients provided a qualitative report on their expectations, experiences, and perceived outcomes of the counselling. Pre–post univariate tests and thematic analysis were used. Clients completed sessions, reporting reduced anxiety, depression, distress, and global mental health symptomology. Client experiences identified four themes on expectations: having none, needing help dealing with feelings and emotions, seeking specific coping strategies, and seeking a better understanding of their experience. Expectations were satisfied for most respondents, regardless of their prior expectations or reason for counselling. Benefits of accessing counselling included reduced symptomology, receipt of beneficial knowledge and skills, and an increased ability to manage their everyday lives.

  • Exploring the Infectious Drug Target Glutathione S-Transferase in
           Plasmodium falciparum with the Inhibitory Potential of Azadirachta indica
           Phytocompounds

    • Abstract: Background. Neem compounds are being studied for their potential as new and effective antimalarial drugs, and there is mounting evidence that they may help treat malaria. The PfGST enzyme is crucial to the malaria parasite’s survival, making it a desirable target for new antimalarial drugs, and the study aims to examine the bark region compounds as PfGST inhibitors. Methods. The structure of PfGST is examined for quality analysis, the active site is predicted based on a web server, and the bark region compounds are docked for their binding potential. Final molecules are identified for the absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion (ADME) analysis to confirm the possible future leads that target malaria. Results. This study reports that IMPHY000093, IMPHY001448, and IMPHY005310 can be potential inhibitors, showing strong binding potential in hydrogen bonds, scoring values, and ADME analysis. Results are confirmed by the possible re-docking poses by the docking method, and the binding score is used for the evaluations. Conclusion. Neem’s active ingredients have shown promise as a new class of antimalarial medications. Neem compounds may boost the efficacy of other antimalarial drugs and the host immune system by inhibiting GST, which is involved in the metabolism of the malaria parasite.
