Patient- and provider-related factors in the success of multidrug tuberculosis treatment in ColombiaFatores de êxito do tratamento da tuberculose multirresistente relacionados com o paciente e com a equipe de saúde na Colômbia
CONCLUSIONS: Some characteristics of patients and healthcare providers influence treatment success in MDR-TB cases. Physicians' and nurses' knowledge about MDR-TB must be improved, and follow-up of MDR-TB patients who are living with HIV and of those affiliated with the subsidized health insurance scheme in Colombia must be strengthened, as these patients have a lower likelihood of a successful treatment outcome.PMID:33833785 | PMC:PMC8021208 | DOI:10.26633/RPSP.2021.5 (Source: Pan American Journal of Public Health)

CONCLUSIONS: The prevalence of violence during pregnancy in Guyana is high and is associated with adverse health outcomes.

CONCLUSIONS: Data suggest while mortality from unintentional injury related to MVA and poisoning is on the rise for both genders and in most age groups, blacks compared to whites and Hispanics may be suffering a disproportionate burden of mortality related to MVAs and to poisonings among those over 55, which may be related to substance use.PMID:33790956 | PMC:PMC7993239 | DOI:10.26633/RPSP.2021.36 (Source: Pan American Journal of Public Health)

Exploring the determinants and outcomes of intimate partner violence during pregnancy for Guyanese women: Results from a nationally representative cross-sectional household survey
CONCLUSIONS: The prevalence of violence during pregnancy in Guyana is high and is associated with adverse health outcomes. These findings suggest the need for intimate partner violence prevention, and for integrating intimate partner violence screening and treatment into antenatal care, reproductive health services, and maternal and child health programs and services to identify and treat at-risk women.PMID:33790954 | PMC:PMC7993238 | DOI:10.26633/RPSP.2021.6 (Source: Pan American Journal of Public Health)

Shifting patterns of disparities in unintentional injury mortality rates in the United States, 1999-2016
CONCLUSIONS: Data suggest while mortality from unintentional injury related to MVA and poisoning is on the rise for both genders and in most age groups, blacks compared to whites and Hispanics may be suffering a disproportionate burden of mortality related to MVAs and to poisonings among those over 55, which may be related to substance use.PMID:33790956 | PMC:PMC7993239 | DOI:10.26633/RPSP.2021.36 (Source: Pan American Journal of Public Health)

Excise taxes on sugar-sweetened beverages in Latin America and the Caribbean
CONCLUSIONS: While the number of countries applying excise taxes on SSBs is promising, there is great heterogeneity in design in terms of structure, tax base, and products taxed. Existing excise taxes could be further leveraged to improve their impact on SSB consumption and health by including all categories of SSBs, excluding bottled water, and relying more on amount-specific taxes regularly adjusted for inflation and possibly based on sugar concentration. All countries would benefit from additional guidance. Future research should aim to address this gap.PMID:33727907 | PMC:PMC7954193 | DOI:10.26633/RPSP.2021.21 (Source:...
