The mortality of women during pregnancy and delivery is a major public health problem in the developing countries, where the maternal mortality rate is between 500 and 1000 per 100 000 births, compared with 7-15 per 100 000 births in the developed countries. Until recently, little attention has been devoted to this problem. The emphasis in health care was on the development of general hospitals in the towns and on the provision of basic health care to prevent and treat i...

In a community-based malaria control project covering a predominantly Muslim population in the United Republic of Tanzania, difficulty was encountered in motivating people to have their mosquito nets reimpregnated with insecticide at six-monthly intervals. Education on this subject was therefore provided in mosques during Friday noon prayers.

INTRODUCTION This report describes the outcome of a consultation held in Pitlochry, Scotland between April 18th and 21st 1993. As the HIV/ATDS epidemic has spread it has become apparent that sexual bchaviour in many countries is, for many reasons, associated with the use of alcohol and other non-injected drugs such as cannabis (marihuana), cocaine and Ecstasy (MDMA). An influential report by Stall et al. (1986) provided empirical evidence that, amongst gay men in the U.S...

The selection of a strategy of control (or eradication) of malaria is, in principle, based on the expected effect of technically feasible intervention methods, and on their cost. A mathematical model of the epidemiology of malaria may rationalize this selection by allowing the quantitative comparison of the relative effects of different intervention methods and their combinations, within the expected range of underlying conditions. A fresh attempt to model the epidemiolo...

INTRODUCTION Ecologists have found that water velocity in streams has a great bearing on the breeding and development of bilharziasis vector snails. Careful investigation of this subject has been hampered by the difficulty of determining velocities near the periphery of the watercourse, the usual habitat of these snails. Upon review of hydraulic treatises, it was found that the subject of water velocity in canals is dealt with mainly from the engineering point of ~-iei\-...

Coupled with this, people's expecta...

Today, man's immune response to infection is regarded as closely integrated, involving different populations of cells. Antigens may first require processing by macrophages before they stimulate lymphocytes that are either thymus-dependent (Tcells) or thymus-independent (B-cells). T-cells comprise the bulk of circulating lymphocytes, are longlived, and may function importantly in immunological memory. When stimulated by antigen they give rise to lymphoblasts, which can be...
