Climate Change and Diseases

Global climate change is a phenomenon that is now considered strongly associated with human activities. Atmospheric carbon dioxide levels, which have remained steady at 180-220 ppm for the past 420,000 years, are now close to 370 ppm and rising. Due to improvements in meteorology, we are now able to better understand long-term changes in climate. Such understanding might enable the prediction of where and when infectious disease outbreaks may occur. Infectious disease distribution involves many of the complex social and demographic factors. Meteorological factors that influence transmission intensity of infectious diseases include humidity, temperature and rainfall patterns. Breakdown in public health services have been mainly responsible for the recent resurgence of infectious diseases. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change noted in its 2007 report that climate change may contribute to expanding risk areas for infectious diseases such as dengue and may increase the burden of diarrhoeal diseases, putting more people at risk. We describe in this book the links between climate and health, future implications, and recommendations.

Prevalence of Bacteria

Calf mortality rate in 2007 in Peshawar (Pakistan) was 17.98% (Khan et al., 2007). Major causes of mortality of neonatal calves were the conditions like diarrhea and pneumonia (Khan et al., 2009, Shimizu and Nagatoma 1978). The neonatal calf mortality in the first month of age is more than 80% of the total mortality in calves (Jenny et al., 1981). Mortality in calves was found due to the conditions e.g. Feeding practices, managemental practices, weather conditions, bacterial and viral infections especially those causing septicemia, diarrhea and enteritis (Blood et al., 1994).The etiology of neonatal calf diarrhea involves a variety of infectious, nutritional, immunological and environmental factors. Many of the infectious agents have been isolated and identified from the feces and tissues of diarrheic calves but the relative importance of each one has not been established. Recently, infections of individual calves and herds with multiple enteropathogens have been described (Acres et al 1977, Moren M.1974, Brown et al 1973).

African Americans and HIV/AIDS

Among U. S. racial and ethnic minority populations, African American communities are the most disproportionately impacted and affected by HIV/AIDS (CDC, 2009, CDC, 2008). The chapters in this volume seek to explore factors that contribute to this disparity as well as methods for intervening and positively impacting the e- demic in the U. S. The book is divided into two sections. The first section includes chapters that explore specific contextual and structural factors related to HIV/AIDS transmission and prevention in African Americans. The second section is composed of chapters that address the latest in intervention strategies, including best-evidence and promising-evidence based behavioral interventions, program evaluation, cost effectiveness analyses and HIV testing and counseling. As background for the book, the Introduction provides a summary of the context and importance of other infectious disease rates, (i. e. , sexually transmitted diseases [STDs] and tubercu- sis), to HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment in African Americans and a brief introductory discussion on the major contextual factors related to the acquisition and transmission of STDs/HIV. Contextual Chapters Johnson & Dean author the first chapter in this section, which discusses the history and epidemiology of HIV/AIDS among African Americans. Specifically, this ch- ter provides a definition for and description of the US surveillance systems used to track HIV/AIDS and presents data on HIV or AIDS cases diagnosed between 2002 and 2006 and reported to CDC as of June 30, 2007.

The present work has been performed in the Mitochondrial Functionalism Laboratory, Muscle Research Unit, Internal Medicine Department of the Hospital Clínic of Barcelona, located in the Institut d'Investigacions Biomèdiques August Pi i Sunyer (IDIBAPS), in the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Barcelona (UB)- Hospital Clínic of Barcelona, Spain. These studies were initiated in 2007 through a grant from the "Fundación para la Investigación y Prevención del SIDA en España" (FIPSE), being co-tutorized by Dr. Òscar Miró i Andreu, from the Emergency Department of the Hospital Clínic of Barcelona and Dra. Clàudia Fortuny Guasch, associated professor of UB, from the Infectious Diseases Unit, Pediatrics Department of the Hospital Sant Joan de Déu of Barcelona. The obtention of one more grant from FIPSE, within the "Centro de Investigación Biomédica en Red de Enfermedades Raras" (CIBERER), whose Principal Investigator is Dra. Glòria Garrabou Tornos, has permitted the continuation of the studies in the last period of this work. This book entitled: "Mitochondrial function in HIV-infected children" has explored the mitochondrial status in this population group.

Safe drinking water and diarrhoeal disease in t...
70,00 € *

Household based treatment and safe storage (HWTS) of drinking water is widely recognised as a cost-effective intervention. Infact, the approach could well represent a means to secure access for communities in the developing world. In some of these communities, the infectious disease epidemiology still much reflects the impact of poor water, sanitation and hygiene conditions, among other issues. This work focuses on childhood diarrhoeal illness. Could HWTS be a useful intervention? The microbiological efficacy and health impact of HWTS is well documented. The question then arises: As the household is such a key player in the package, what are the factors that would influence the acceptability and continued use of HWTS by households? This work sought to respond to this question by examining the field evidence available up to February 2007. Since then there has been an increase in the investigations on the subject. Consequently, an updated review is being prepared. It is anticipated that this work will contribute to efforts towards the translation of research knowledge into relevant, effective and efficient policy and practice.
