Cuba and the Global Year of Universal Health: Cristian Morales PhD Former PAHO/WHO Representative in Cuba.

Cuba and the Global Year of Universal Health: Cristian Morales PhD Former PAHO/WHO Representative in Cuba. MEDICC Rev. 2019 Jan;21(1):10-13 Authors: Reed G Abstract A 2014 PAHO resolution that Cristian Morales helped formulate serves as a framework for the Americas' governments to actively work towards health for all their people, incorporating this aim into national programs for sustainable development. This September, the UN General Assembly will sponsor a High-Level Meeting on Universal Health . . . a first in its history. In part two of MEDICC Review's interview with Dr Morales, he outlines strategies he believes vital for transforming health systems to reach universal health-defined as coverage and access for all-and for turning words into action.

Authors: Alqahtani S, Nehme Z, Williams B, Bernard S, Smith K Abstract Aim: To describe temporal trends in the incidence, characteristics and outcomes of hanging-related out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). Method: A retrospective study of all hanging-related OHCA in Victoria, Australia, between 2000 and 2017 was conducted. Trends in incidence, characteristics and outcomes were assessed using linear regression and a non-parametric test for trend, as appropriate. Predictors of survival to hospital discharge were identified using multivariable logistic regression. Results: Between 2000 and 2017, emergency medical s...

Authors: Urbaniak A, SkarpaƄska-Stejnborn A Abstract The aim of the study was to review recent findings on the use of POM supplements in athletes of various disciplines and physically active participants. Eleven articles published between 2010 and 2018 were included, where the total number of investigated subjects was 176. Male participants constituted the majority of the group (n = 155), as compared to females (n = 21). 45% of research described was conducted on athletes, whereas the remaining studies were based on highly active participants. Randomised, crossover, double-blind study designs ...

Conclusion: Overweight and obese individuals have lower serum folate concentrations when compared with individuals with normal weight. It is explained by increased use of folic acid, urinary excretion, dilution of blood volume, different levels in different tissues and changes in the endocrine functions of folate. Individuals with higher Body Mass Indexes have less supplement use, unhealthier diets and donot consume sufficient vegetables and fruits, all of which can affect decrease in folate levels. Furthermore, adiposity may affect folate absorption by intestinal epithelium. PMID: 31512572 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
