Hepatitis B knowledge, attitudes and practices among Moroccan college students.
Authors: Bentouhami MR, Chakib A, El Fane M Abstract BACKGROUND: Viral Hepatitis B (HBV) prevalence in Morocco is estimated at 1.81%. University students are an exposed population due to their risky behaviors. Their knowledge about HBV is still unknown. The aim of our study was to assess the knowledge, attitudes and practices of college students in Casablanca about HBV. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was carried out in January 2015 among the students of the eight schools of Hassan II University in Casablanca using a self-administered questionnaire. A knowledge score was calculated to compare the groups with s...

Sport injury prevalence and risk by level of play and sports played among a representative population of French adolescents. A school-based study.
CONCLUSION: From the state level of competition, injury risk increases significantly across most of the sports. Meanwhile, differences appeared regarding the prevalence, severity and nature of the sustained injuries. It would be useful to perform such analysis on a greater sample size, ideally representative of the national population of adolescents.

Is menarche occuring earlier among Lebanese girls?
CONCLUSIONS: Epidemiological figures emerging from this study confirm that trends in Lebanon are in line with a global pattern of decreasing age at menarche. Urban-rural differences suggest that higher caloric content of diet and consequent early overweight, more evident in urban areas, are likely determinants of younger menarche. Evidence from this study calls for an urgent implementation of comprehensive multisectoral obesity prevention in children in Lebanon.

Population-based incidence of lymphomas in the French Nord-Pas-de-Calais region between 2001 and 2005: Annual estimations and spatial analysis.
CONCLUSION: Comparison with national data collected during the same period does not show an overincidence of NHL in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region. In addition, no evidence for spatial heterogeneity and clustering of NHL incidence was found within this region. Future epidemiological research using large-scale registries is needed to better appraise spatial variation of NHL incidence in France and to investigate possible reasons for significant clusters.

Anthropometric status and body image perception among Moroccan university students.
CONCLUSION: The results of this study indicate a high rate of body image dissatisfaction and a tendency of participants to underestimate their body weight. This behavior may be a reflection of a real influence of social and psychological factors occurring during this critical period and may make university students vulnerable to many risk-taking behaviors. Thus, there is a need for suitable interventional programs and innovative strategies to ensure the understanding of the health consequences of overweight and obesity and to prevent associated comorbidities.

Mental health among university students with eating disorders and irritable bowel syndrome in France.
CONCLUSION: Students (female especially) suffer from ED and IBS, with a significant risk of co-existing ED-IBS. ED and IBS are related to multiple mental health symptoms, which could lead to negative academic consequences. Screening, using simple and quick tests as SCOFF questionnaire and ROME IV criteria (update of ROME III in 2016), is essential in this population of university students.

It includes, among others, absence of psychological (anxio-depressive) symptoms, perceived positive work conditions (environment and organization), happiness and good quality of life at work. Many studies have shown that social support and control at work protect mental health while high job demands and effort-reward imbalance are risk factors for anxiety and depression.

Difficulties in achieving and maintaining the goal of measles elimination in Bulgaria.
Authors: Komitova R, Kevorkyan A, Boykinova O, Krumova S, Atanasova M, Raycheva R, Stoilova Y, Kunchev A Abstract Measles is a disease with almost a hundred year history of existing registration in Bulgaria and has been subject to mass immunization since 1969. In 2017, after a three-year period with a low number of measles cases registered, an epidemic upsurge has been recorded affecting 3 of the total 28 regions in the country.

Assessment of physical activity is therefore an important factor in the promotion of health and in several childhood and adulthood pathological situations. Physical activity can be estimated by various methods: pedometry, heart rate monitoring, questionnaires, the doubly labelled water method, and accelerometry. The choice of the type of device depends on the objectives of the clinician or researcher. Accelerometry currently represents the best objective method for measuring physical activity and is widely u...

Nevertheless, because addressing the challenge of health equity depends largely on the mobilization of a large number of protagonists with very heterogeneous initiatives, interests and values, the conduct of such policies potentially opens up a space for confrontation between those who wish to promote it and those who refuse, challenge, circumvent or neutralize the r...
