  • Risks and Protocols for Occupational Infections in Norwegian Nursing
           Programs

    • Authors: Lua Samimi, Joern Klein
      Abstract: Hospital-acquired infections (HAI) affect millions of patients and healthcare workers every year. Nursing students are a particularly vulnerable population at increased risk of occupationally-acquired infections and injuries. In this qualitative study, we explore the risks and protocols currently in place for occupational infections in Norwegian nursing programs. Stress and lack of resources were among the identified individual and systemic risk factors, respectively. Accessible reporting systems and surveillance registries were also noted to be lacking across all participating universities. This paper highlights areas of improvement that nursing programs around the world may consider to better protect their students.

  • Analysis of Chronic Pain Management in Canada and South Asia

    • Authors: Jesse Sidhu, Gurmit Singh
      Abstract: Chronic pain is a complicated condition that involves biological, sociological and psychological aspects. Management of chronic pain vastly differs between high-income and low- and middle-income countries due to variances in pain education, drug accessibility, governmental policies, culture and infrastructure. Therefore, this literature review analyzed chronic pain management in Canada and specific South Asian countries, including India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, to examine these differences, as well as what sociocultural and infrastructural factors contribute to them. In Canada, chronic pain still presents a major obstacle for society due to opioid misuse and mortality, patient beliefs, and poor pain education in professional health science programs. However, Canada’s approach to pain assessment and management is more standardized through the regular use of pain scales and treatment guides and less hindered when compared to the South Asian countries examined. These South Asian countries face different barriers to providing effective pain management. Cultural beliefs, physician education, infrequent use of standardized pain assessment tools and healthcare infrastructure all present as barriers to effective pain management. Therefore, in Canada and the four South Asian countries examined, significance should be placed on the field of pain management via education, funding, and legislative changes to increase accessibility to suitable treatments.

  • Exclusive Breastfeeding in Infants of HIV-Positive Mothers: Do the Pros
           Outweigh the Cons' A Literature Review

    • Authors: Mary Attalla
      Abstract: Current guidelines in many developed countries urge women who are HIV-positive to formula feed (FF) and neglect to consider the possibility of breastfeeding (BF). This paper emphasizes the benefits of exclusive breastfeeding (EBF) on infant and maternal health and well-being. Many studies emphasize the importance of EBF in reducing infant mortality compared to mixed-breastfeeding (MBF) or FF. Further studies concluded that when HIV-positive mothers are on antiretroviral therapies (ART), the chance of mother-to-child transmission (MTCT) is minimal (approximately 1%). This paper provides insight for policy-makers in developed countries to promote change in BF guidelines for all women, reduce MTCT of HIV, and allow women to choose their feeding preferences.

  • Climate Change Implications on Maternal and Infant Health Outcomes in
           Japan and Southeast Asia: A Comparative Scoping Review

    • Authors: ANKITA DATAR
      Abstract: Climate change is noted as the biggest challenge of the 21st century, due to its complexity and widespread impacts on every aspect of human life. Climate predictions in Asia are particularly daunting as they have grave implications on public health, especially for pregnant women and infants. The following scoping review identifies climate-related challenges currently faced by this subgroup, along with future complications predicted through meteorological modelling. First, the impacts of climate change in Japan were examined, accompanied by a cross-comparison with Southeast (SE) Asia to understand how similar predictions could have varying implications on health outcomes. Climate modelling across East and SE Asia has indicated a rise in extreme weather events, pollution, precipitation, heat, and disease transmission. These predictions will fuel health complications for pregnant women and infants, notably increasing morbidity and mortality rates. The brunt of these climate consequences will be felt by the countries of SE Asia, due to underdeveloped infrastructure, governance, and public health systems. Nevertheless, current research emphasizes that neither Japan nor SE Asia are prepared to protect this vulnerable subgroup. Existing emergency-response strategies and medical resource allocation is limited in scope, and widespread disaster contingency plans are yet to be developed. To address these gaps, scientists have recommended the necessity of multidimensional, whole-of-government climate-adaptation strategies.

  • Testing the Foundations: A Glimpse into Health Service Delivery in China
           during the Ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic

    • Authors: Saranya Naraentheraraja, Alex Zhou, Amber Kernaghan, Sharon Joseph, Alaa Ibrahim, Uche Ikenyei
      Abstract: Pandemics can severely impact the capability of a healthcare system, especially the availability of health service delivery. This paper analyzes China’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic by assessing its provision of health service delivery. The objectives of this review are to identify themes in health service delivery models from the Chinese response and suggest recommendations for strengthening future Chinese pandemic responses. Major themes were identified in the types of healthcare service delivery models that guided the Chinese COVID-19 response. These models include the increasing use of telemedicine, ‘internet hospitals’, and the use of Fangcang hospitals during the peak of the pandemic. Exploration of these themes has led to recommendations of creating a national registry to monitor healthcare services while leveraging telemedicine platforms to continue access to routine medical services for the public.

  • Case Report: Telehealth Initiative Project in Koibarak Community, Markawet
           West Subcounty, and Elgeyo Markawet County in Rural Kenya

    • Authors: Christine Saleeb, Asrat Dibaba Tolossa
      Abstract: COVID-19 has worsened existing and exposed new healthcare challenges, especially in the weakest healthcare systems. Telehealth has been used to overcome some of these challenges, especially in African economies such as Kenya. World Vision Canada’s Enhancing Nutrition Services to Improve Maternal and Child Health in Africa and Asia (ENRICH) project has implemented the Telehealth Initiative to improve the well-being and reduction of life-threatening effects of COVID-19 on children and their families within targeted areas of rural Koibarak Community, the Marakwet West Subcounty and Elgeyo Markawet County in Kenya by June 2021. The Telehealth Initiative intervention has leveragedtechnology to spread preventative measures against COVID-19, distributing personal protective equipment (PPE) and facilitating Psychological First Aid services to all households. Overall, these efforts have resulted in a proactive COVID-19 response and improved access to healthcare services, as there were less cases of COVID-19 in these areas (cumulative 322) compared to the national average. Challenges arose, however, such as limited resources for COVID-19 testing, reporting and logistics. Other challenges include the rising COVID-19 case count that will continue to constrain the healthcare system, inadequate behaviour change, and the lack of COVID-19 resources available for school reopening.Future directions to address these challenges include health system strengthening, possibilities of upscaling the Telehealth Initiative, increasing local production of PPE, ensuring a functional vaccine rollout, and improvements to in-school precautions.

  • Strategies to Address the Mental Health Burden of Nurses during the
           COVID-19 Pandemic in South Africa

    • Authors: Aishwarya Kulkarni, Angelo Ricci, Malcolm Leaman, Emily Kidd, Shara Thomas, Uche Ikenyei
      Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic has placed a burden on healthcare systems in South Africa. This has added huge pressure on frontline healthcare workers, especially nurses, who maintain workplace safety and oversee the efficient use of resources. Prior to the pandemic, South Africa had a healthcare worker density above the WHO recommendations but faced a labour shortage due to healthcare worker emigration, with nearly 20% of public sector nurses leaving the country. In addition to this severe shortage of staff, insufficient personal protective equipment and declining wages led to increased infections, mental health distress, and poor employee morale among nurses during the pandemic. However, by following a modified response strategy similar to Peru’s, which aims to isolate COVID-19 epicenters and utilize task shifting through community health workers, South Africa can alleviate the current nursing overburden by reducing mental health distress – overall improving the country's Human Resources for Health.

  • H. Pylori Infection: A Silent Epidemic that Affects Disadvantaged
           Populations in Haiti

    • Authors: Youri Encelotti Louis, Jean Roumain Cadet, Robens Gustinvil, Daphkar Dieuveut
      Abstract: Helicobacter pylori (HP) infection is the main cause of chronic gastritis and the principal etiological agent for gastric cancer and peptic ulcer disease. Its prevalence is generally related to socioeconomic status and levels of hygiene. In Cornillon, a commune in Haiti, a large number of patients with gastrointestinal complaints reinforced our commitment to look for the correlation with HP infection in Haiti. This is a qualitative and quantitative observational study that gathered data from 109 patients who went to Sainte Thérèse Hospital in Miragoâne, Georges Gauvin Hospital in Grand-Goâve, and the Health Center of Cornillon Grand Bois for gastrointestinal complaints from April to July 2019. The seroprevalence of the HP infection was 87.2% and the sex ratio of patients M/F was 0.45. We found that 88.5% (n=96) of all patients were from the lower social class and disadvantaged communities in rural areas. The majority of infected patients were street traders, farmers, students and jobless individuals. 42.2% (n=46) of all participants were street traders and 91.3% of the street traders had a positive HP result. The HP infection itself is not fatal, but its resulting complications are for those who live in the Global South (lower income countries) with a lack of adequate primary care. The high burden of gastric cancer in Haiti is likely one of the consequences of the high prevalence of HP infection.

    • Authors: Leshawn Benedict, Ben Umakanthan, Gordon Thane, William Wang, Sulaiman Alhalbouni
      Abstract: Health communication plays a critical role in supporting public health and global health practice. Podcasts are increasingly being used as a medium to disseminate health-related information in education, clinical, and non-academic settings. Through this paper, we examine the Public Health Insight Podcast, its potential role as a health communication tool, and opportunities that emerged as a result of its dissemination.
