There after infection is only likely to occur with breastfeeding hence replacement feeding is preferred to prevent HIV infection amongst mothers. It's sustainability in economically constrained societies can lead to malnutrition. The results of the study carried out in Nairobi, Kenya reveal the nutrition status of breastfed and replacement fed infants.

Understanding and monitoring the prevalence of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection among premarital clients and discordant rate among premarital couples and applying specific interventions targeted at this group could bring dual benefit as it prevents both heterosexual and vertical transmission of the disease. 8.2% of premarital VCT clients included in the current study were sero positive for HIV. 6.5% of premarital VCT couples were found to be sero discordant, while concordant negative and concordant positive accounted for 92.0% and 1.4% respectively. Both HIV sero positivity and discordance were relatively higher among those who previously separated/divorced and widowed partners. So, don't you think that exerting special efforts to make premarital couples aware of their own and their partners' sero status before engagement is imperative to their future healthy life and the future of the nations?

The current study was conducted to evaluate the oxidative stress status in prostate cancer. To achieve this purpose, 75 prostate cancer patients of ages 63.5± 3.5 years and 33 apparently healthy individuals of ages 61± 3.8 years (control group) were enrolled. The distribution of patients revealed 60% (40) of rural areas, 44% (30) are smokers, 52% (39) having either heart diseases and/or hypertension, and 40% (30) of positive family history for the disease. The levels of MDA, GSH, GPX, and CAT were measured in sera of patients and control group. The statistical analysis exhibited significant elevation for MDA levels and significant decreases for GSH and GPX levels in the group of patients when compared with those of the control group. Patients from rural areas showed significant rise for MDA values when compared with those of urban areas. Variations of oxidative stress markers were found to be essentially related to prostate cancer and independent on smoking or other diseases in the studied patients. MDA levels were demonstrated to increase significantly in patients of positive family history when compared with those of negative family history of prostate cancer.

Master's Thesis from the year 2001 in the subject Medicine - Neoplasms, Oncology, , language: English, abstract: Weight loss is a common feature in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The clinical importance of weight loss; particularely loss of fat-free mass (FFM) has been demonstrated in its adverse effects on physical performance and quality of life. Moreover; weight loss and a low body weight are unfavorable prognostic factors in survival, independent of lung function.Mechanisms of malnutrition in those patients are not fully understood. Several factors have been implicated. Increased resting energy expenditure (REE) contributes the main hypothesis for weight loss in COPD patients. However, not all patients with COPD who lose weight are hypermetabolic.Recent data have shown that a systemic inflammatory response is present in patients with COPD. A clear evidence for a relationship between weight loss and plasma tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-*) has been shown in COPD patients. TNF-* produces a cachexia-like syndrome in animal models and has been implicated as a mediator of cachexia in several clinical conditions including cancer, chronic heart failure, cystic fibrosis and anorexia nervosa.Nutritional assessment for COPD patients is essential; to identify those individuals who will benifit from nutritional support therapies and to determine baseline values to measure the effectiveness of nutritional intervention.

In all programs in the fight against the HIV/AIDS pandemic, there is a general consensus that information and education remain the backbone. To disseminate information, the media can play a significant role. However, various commentators have claimed that the media have been an underutilized force in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Moreover, studies of media coverage of HIV/AIDS conducted in various parts of the world have shown that scant coverage and distorted portrayal are almost the rule of the day. Generally speaking, however, whether the media are using their roles in the prevention of HIV/AIDS effectively remains a subject of scholarly debate. In Ethiopia, imperial information about media coverage of HIV/AIDS is sparse. This book, therefore, provides detailed analyzes of the magnitude and nature of HIV/AIDS coverage in Ethiopian newspapers. Since the analysis was made using different theories and other researches as a backdrop, the book provides important implications not only about the coverage of HIV/AIDS but also about theoretical underpinnings. The book will be useful for students, journalists, researchers and professionals in the field of media and communications.

HIV/AIDS has challenged humans perhaps more than any other pandemic in recent history. In the era of globalization and increased movement of people crossing borders, immigrants especially from HIV prone countries to the western world have been singled out as one of the 'risk groups' by host nations.In countries like Sweden, where multicultural society is in the making, HIV prevention programs have targeted immigrants more than others. However, HIV infections are still on the increase and HIV prevention strategies and methods have been questioned. This book explores the views of HIV prevention workers drawn from immigrants themselves and closely examines explanations from structural to specific contextual factors for the challenges of HIV prevention in multicultural neighborhoods of Gothenburg city in Sweden. The study surfaces out new dimensions that have not been sufficiently addressed by concerned bodies in HIV prevention efforts. The analysis from this study would help policy makers, professionals, HIV practitioners and ordinary people especially in the western world, where immigrants are significant proportion of society.

They also identified a need for explicit and accurate knowledge on HIV/AIDS issues, opportunities to acquire behavioural skills for HIV prevention, and involvement of external speakers.The needs of the pupils have not been adequately addressed by the current classroom practice. Factors which influenced this can be linked to lack of policies that are responsive to culture and religion, ineffective and inadequate teaching policy guidelines, and lack of a policy prioritizing HIV/AIDS education by making it examinable.

After nearly 4 years of working in HIV and AIDS field, I have studied the whole episode from different parts of the world. My experience of being born and grown up in Africa, where nearly 22.5 million people are living with HIV and AIDS and has only 10% of world's population (UNAIDS/WHO,2008) and my working experience in England for nearly seven years have taught me that, the developed world approaches towards HIV Pandemic are quite different from that of developing World. The review of educational approach on HIV awareness, prevention, treatment and care management reveals that there are health inequalities between the developed and developing worlds (Pratt, 2003). In addition I have learned that the attitudes of us, Africans, towards HIV and AIDS need to change in order to effectively promote HIV/AIDS Prevention intervention in the communities, starting from the grassroots through to the government levels. The prevention Intervention of HIV in the developed world has been successful due to various opportunities and strengths including economy, technology and communities' accessibility to education which, have much influence in combating HIV and AIDS Pandemic.

This book outlines the current epidemiology of HIV associated oral lesions globally and stratifies countries falling under all six WHO regional offices according to high, medium and low prevalence of oral manifestations of HIV infection. Currently there are many knowledge gaps in the prevalence of oral lesions related to HIV infection from different regions as majority of the countries have no database or referral system for these kind of lesions. This is an obstacle to the implementation of various HIV prevention and health promotion programmes as oral lesions are strong indicators of HIV infection, invariably often are the first lesions to be identified and reportedly, are markers of disease progression and parallel the changes in various laboratory markers like CD4 cell count and HIV viral load. Having such a database can prove to be very pivotal in our fight against AIDS because of its diagnostic and prognostic significance. This work is amongst some early studies to show the prevalence globally across countries falling under all six WHO regional offices.

The impact of HIV/AIDS goes beyond individuals infected with the pandemic to reach broadly into the society, both disrupting the functioning of communities and complicating prevention and its treatment. Given the increased quality and length of life of persons living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA), many organizations are faced with the challenge of accommodating PLWHAs. This study focused on the perceptions of employees towards working with HIV/AIDS infected co-workers at Fedics Food Services in Eastern Cape. The study was done to shade light on the willingness of employees to work with HIV/AIDS colleagues regardless of whether they exist in the organization or not. The study was a quantitative research whereby self administered questionnaires were distributed to respondents. Descriptive data analysis was used to establish employee perceptions on HIV/AIDS and the chi-square was used to determine the levels of significance of each response. The results showed that employees at Fedics Food services were willing to work with HIV/AIDS infected co-workers.

Master's Thesis from the year 2013 in the subject Nutritional Science, grade: Good, Hawassa University (Institute of Nutrition, Food Science and Technology), language: English, abstract: World Vision Ethiopia had implemented a two years Essential Nutrition Promotion (ENP) Project, using the Positive Deviance/Hearth (PD Hearth) approach, in two Kebeles of Jeju District from June 2007 to September 2009. The PD Hearth approach identifies those behaviors practiced by the mothers or caretakers of well-nourished children from poor families and transfers such positive practices to others in the community with malnourished children. The study investigated whether there are improvements sustained three years after the program was terminated. A Cross-sectional survey was administered to a total of 249 children, 123 of them randomly selected from two Kebeles that had previously participated in the program and 126 children from a neighboring comparison two Kebeles. All the sample children 6-59 months of age were measured, and mothers of children under 24 months interviewed. The children born after the completion of the program in the intervention area were significantly better nourished than those in the comparison area, with adjusted mean weight-for-age Z scores of -0.963 versus -1.308 (p < 0.05), respectively. More intervention area mothers of under 24 months children were currently breastfeeding, at the time (100%) as compared with comparison area mothers (94.2%, p < 0.05). ...

HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, "Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome," has become one of the world's most serious health and development challenges, since the first cases were reported in 1981: At the end of 2010, an estimated 34 million people were living with HIV globally, including 3.4 million children less than 15 years. The number of people newly infected in 2010 was 2.7 million. Almost all of those living with HIV (97%) reside in low and middle income countries, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa. Sub-Saharan Africa remained the most affected region in the global AIDS epidemic. This regions accounts more than two third (68%) of people living with HIV. Most children with HIV live in this region. Globally, the annual numbers of people newly infected with HIV continues to decline (Global HIV/AIDS Response progress report, 2011).

As Sub-Saharan Africa continues to claim the lion's share of the world's HIV burden, it is crucial to shed some light on the types of sexual behaviors and the underlying factors influencing these behaviors in relation to HIV/AIDS in this particular part of the world. Even though the relationship between sexual behaviors and HIV/AIDS has garnered a lot of attention and many researches have been conducted in the area, comprehensive knowledge is still inadequate in Sub-Saharan countries partially explaining the staggering incidence rate despite enormous investment focused on prevention. Given the paramount economic and social impact of HIV in Africa as a result of its drastic effect on the young and productive part of the society, studies specifically targeting this age group can unravel a wealth of information essential for intervention. This book closely examines perception of risk of HIV/AIDS and intention to adopt preventive behaviors among students in Dire Dawa University in Ethiopia.

The book provides a systematic analysis of the prevalence of HIV and AIDS-related stigma and discrimination among students at Great Zimbabwe University (GZU) by focusing on their causes, forms, contexts and impact. It examines how stigma and discrimination in a higher institution of learning are exacerbating HIV and AIDS epidemic among the youths. Those on Anti-Retroviral Therapy cannot publicly take their medication as those suffering from Diabetes or Blood Pressure. Hence, the work is partially a response to the clarion call that 'We can't be silent' on HIV and AIDS epidemic or even do contemporary education without engaging with the HIV epidemic. At GZU, the problem is still an incipient concrete existential reality that should be nipped in the bud.

Cambodia is one of the few countries in the world to achieve the MDG in reversing the spread of HIV, with the prevalence falling from 3% in 1998 to 0.7% in 2008. The decline indicates a high commitment from government and civil society in the fight against HIV. The book highlights the success in multiple interventions and challenges facing over the course of the epidemic. The work is based on different studies conducted over the course of preventive interventions from 2002 to 2005 to investigate the epidemiological context of the epidemic, and how this is related to changes in risk behaviours in the general population and in sub-groups of the population. Results from this work suggest an optimistic future in HIV control and prevention in Cambodia. However, challenges do remain, including the reliable quality of HIV/STI service deliveries, the sustainability of preventive programmes, and the dependency of heavily external funding supports. This book should be useful for students and professionals in public health especially for program planners and researchers, or anyone who may be interested in the development of HIV prevention and control in developing countries.

Master's Thesis from the year 2011 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: Development Politics, grade: none, , course: Post Graduate Diploma in Sustainable Community Development, language: English, abstract: The study sought to evaluate the role of men in HIV and AIDS management in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Zimbabwe, Harare, Mbare Congregation. in a society where men are seen as strong in terms of masculinity, gender and economical issues their role in mitigating against HIV and AIDS is questionable as in many cases they are viewed as the main drivers of the disease. Several governments, Non Governmental Organization and Faith Based Organization has made it clear of their commitment to towards the education, treatment and care and eradication of the pandemic. this also calls in the role of the church as an organization to determine what role does it play on mitigation.An analysis of data collected suggests that there is need for the church to engage its congregants to more information in HIV and AIDS awareness through its teachings. However there is need to train the pastors first before they are ordained and sent out to work with parishioners and congregants. The researcher recommended the introduction of training of pastors in HIV and AIDS issues and that man as decision makers should also be involved in caring, and all management and mitigation issues in relation to HIV and AIDS issues.

The results are four-fold: First, the community of Malakal lack adequate knowledge of HIV/AIDS and such low knowledge of the disease has resulted in misconceptions towards persons living with it. Secondly, the PLWHA have developed negative attitudes in their relationships with the community, by denying the reality of living with the disease. Thirdly, the community perceives the PLWHA as different from themselves, people from whom they should distance themselves. Fourthly, there is great fear of HIV/AIDS which hinders the common person from discussing issues related to HIV/AIDS.The findings of this study have shown that to succeed in combating HIV/AIDS one has to tackle the challenges posed by the stigma associated with the epidemic; otherwise the efforts to provide care, treatment and prevention will not have an impact and ultimately impede efforts to defeat HIV/AIDS in the world.

The study on the impact of HIV/AIDS on the livestock-producing communities of Uganda was carried out in Kashumba and Moyo sub counties. There was no clear data that supported the impact of HIV/AIDS on livestock producing communities on labour, decision-making, grazing and watering time and factors that aggravated its effects. Data were collected using semi-structured questionnaire,focus group discussion, observation guides and review of secondary data. The study showed that there was reduction in the availability of labour for grazing and watering livestock in both Moyo and Kashumba; There was shift in decision-making and implementation from ailing household heads to selected household members. There was significant negative changes in livestock grazing and sale of livestock products in households affected by HIV/AIDS compared to those non affected. Furthermore, there was reduction in grazing and watering time for livestock activities. It was observed that daily animal source foods reduced in the affected households. The study recommended that HIV/AIDS mitigation measures be intergrated in the livestock sector plans that will create HIV/AIDS competent communities in Uganda.

As an HIV Counsselor, Tester, and Health Educator, I have had conversations that were amazing, enlightening, unsettling, and unexpected. There is still fear, strong dislike, ignorance, and misinformation about HIV disease, as well as the kinds of people that will supposedly contract the virus.Many of those conversations pertaining to HIV disease intersect with race, gender, sexuality, income, and religion. It is my hope that this book will encourage dialogue and stimulate new discussion among those intersections, as well as rethink how our sexual, and other behaviors, impact ourselves, and the well-being of others.
