Social protection and public policy for vulnerable populations: an assessment of the Continuous Cash Benefit Program of Welfare in Brazil

Resumo O artigo descreve a evolu ção histórica e o perfil dos requerentes do Benefício de Prestação Continuada da Assistência Social (BPC), destinado a idosos e pessoas pobres com deficiência, que utiliza, desde 2009, critérios de elegibilidade construídos com base na CIF/OMS e em consonância com a Convenção sobre os D ireitos das Pessoas com deficiência da ONU. O comportamento dos benefícios foi determinado a partir da análise dos coeficientes de concessões gerais e não judiciais, entre 1998 e 2014. O perfil, segundo situação de deferimento, idade, sexo e componentes da CIF, foi estabelecido para os anos d e 2010 e 2014. O crescimento médio anual do coeficiente foi maior de 2000 a 2010, anterior à adoção do modelo de elegibilidade biopsicossocial, enquanto o de concessões não judiciais cresceu até 2010, decrescendo a seguir. A razão de deferimento foi maior entre as crianças e entre os que en frentam barreiras ambientais, limitações e restrições e alterações corporais graves ou completas. A implantação do modelo de avaliação biopsicossocial não ocasionou aumento no ritmo de concessões e os resultados evidenciam a necessidade de flexibilização dos critérios de elegibilidade .Ab...

Publication date: Available online 18 November 2019Source: Regional Science and Urban EconomicsAuthor(s): Jiajun LuAbstractThe paper examines the relationship between climate amenities and locational choices in retirement. Using data from 2017 release of the American Community Survey, I construct a household residential location choice model and value climate amenities from the trade-offs among housing cost, climate amenities, and other locational attributes in a metropolitan statistical area (MSA). On average, a retired household is willing to pay $1209 for a 1○C drop in average summer temperature, $1114 for a 1○C inc...

Authors: Brodowski L, Büter W, Kohls F, Hillemanns P, von Kaisenberg C, Dammann O Abstract Maternal overweight and obesity are prenatal risk factors for obstetrical complications, preterm birth, neonatal morbidity as well as cognitive and behavioural developmental disorders in children. Paediatric morbidity and mortality as well as child development disorders are significantly associated with maternal obesity. Particularly in the neurodevelopmental and psychiatric area, it is becoming increasingly clear that, in children of mothers with an increased body mass index (BMI), there is a high correlation with child...

Painful neuromas are not uncommon following nerve injury, and are especially bothersome in the hand, with severe cases resulting in significant disability. Outcomes of neuroma surgery are unpredictable regardless of technique. It is recognized that optimal soft tissue environment influences nerve healing more than the specific nerve graft technique, and it is in this context, we present a novel technique of transferring a posterior interosseous nerve graft along with vascularized synovial and fat tissue based on a branch of the posterior interosseous artery to provide healthy soft tissue for nerve healing of neuroma in con...

We describe a method by using combined wedge non-VBG to correct the nonunion deformity when treating scaphoid nonunion with pedicled VBG. The wedge bone graft was harvested just proximal to the 2,3 intercompartmental supraretinacular artery VBG and was used as an inlay at the volar site to correct the humpback deformity, whereas the VBG was set at the dorsal site for bone bridging and blood supply. We also present our results of 10 patients with scaphoid fracture nonunion and humpback deformity treated with this method. Bone healing was achieved and the lateral intrascaphoid angles could be improved in all the 10 patients....

ConclusionsMSCs transplantation proved to be a safe and tolerable therapy. Their potential therapeutic benefits were also validated. However, larger placebo controlled blinded clinical trials will be required to establish the long term safety and efficacy profile of these therapies for MS. Their translation into the clinical practice can provide a new hope for the patients of this highly debilitating disease.

Authors: Çimen Atalar A, Yalın OÖ, Aslan H, Baykan B Abstract OBJECTIVES: There are only a handful of studies examining the clinical differences between patients with and without a family history of migraine. Our aim is to compare the descriptive and clinical properties of patients with and without a family history, and to investigate the association between the migraine burden and disease characteristics and disability of migraine. METHODS: A total of 530 consecutive patients diagnosed with migraine according to the International Headache Society criteria were enrolled into the study. Detailed sys...

Assessment of frailty has become engrained in the preprocedural evaluation of older adults referred for transcatheter aortic valve replacement. Addition of frailty and disability to clinical risk scores results in improved discrimination for short- and midterm mortality and identifies patients less likely to be discharged home and more likely to report worsening quality of life over the ensuing 6 to 12  months. In clinical practice, frailty can be evaluated by a tiered approach starting with a brief screening tool such as the Essential Frailty Toolset.
