Uganda: Mobilise Public to Join the Fight Against Hepatitis B
[Monitor] In 2016, deaths caused by viral hepatitis surpassed all chronic infectious diseases, including HIV/Aids, malaria and tuberculosis, according to a Global Burden of Disease study. The prevalence of hepatitis B in Uganda stands at 4.1 per cent, which means that 1.75 million people are infected. This is according to a study carried out by the Ministry of Health in partnership with the Centre for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organisation (WHO).
CONCLUSION: After outpatient episode incidence of influenza, antiviral treatment has been shown to reduce the incidence of hospitalized pneumonia, especially in infants and children, during pandemic season 2017. Antiviral therapy for influenza is recommended to minimize burden caused by influenza virus infection and to reduce pneumonia. In addition, medical costs of hospitalization may decrease by antiviral therapy, especially in infants and children. PMID: 32989929 [PubMed - in process]
Conclusion: Two lncRNAs ENST00000429730.1 and MSTRG.93125.4 might be considered as potential indicators of metabolic activity in tuberculosis lesions for sputum-negative tuberculosis.
CONCLUSIONS: The acceptability of new male methods among most participants in the two countries indicates a potential demand for male contraceptives. Options should include a variety of method characteristics to maximize choice, engage men, and support men and women's contraceptive needs. PMID: 32985988 [PubMed - in process]
From February to April 2020, drop>20 percent observed for all primary admission diagnoses
CONCLUSIONS: LCA is an efficient method to find groups of people sharing common HIV risk profiles, identify particularly vulnerable sub-populations, and plan targeted interventions focusing on these groups. Tailored support, prevention and HIV testing programmes should focus particularly on female household heads, adolescent girls living in rural areas, older married men and young men who have never been married.

Conclusion The vaccination comprises a misguided and unsafe national health care program which claims to prevent disease. Many significant health injuries are associated with vaccinating adults. Government resources are being spent researching and developing new and different vaccinations. Subjecting adults to more vaccinations is likely to cause more health injury and illness.

Chawla Viral hepatitis is a cause for major health care burden in India and is now equated as a threat comparable to the “big three” communicable diseases – HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis. Hepatitis A virus and Hepatitis E virus are predominantly enterically transmitted pathogens and are responsible to cause both sporadic infections and epidemics of acute viral hepatitis. Hepatitis B virus and Hepatitis C virus are predominantly spread via parenteral route and are notorious...
