Demographic trends and population issues: current and potential impact on child health

, : Demographic trends and population issues: current and potential impact on child health. Pacific Health Dialog 1(2): 13-17

A close look at the structure, distribution and growth patterns of the Pacific Island population finds significant demographic features. With few exceptions, fertility is high, with only modest decline in Melanesia and Micronesia and steeper decline in Polynesia. Mortality in contrast, has declined far more rapidly in many countries reaching levels usually associated with the more developed regions of the world.

A new amphiphilic Y-shaped copolymer, comprised of hydrophobic poly(undecylenic acid) (PUA) and hydrophilic poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAAm), was designed and synthesized. A cytotoxicity study revealed that P(UA-Y-NIPAAm) copolymers did not e...

Experimental inoculations of golden flavescence with S. littoralis, in comparison with Baco-22-A, were attempted under similar conditions on 23 vine varieties. Besides the number of positive tests for each variety, various criteria were considered...

Purpose: This report summarizes the authors' 2-year experience with excimer laser photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) on 160 eyes of 128 patients. Methods: All eyes were treated with an excimer laser: fluence, 160 mJ/cm-2; frequency, 5 Hz; abla...

Low temperature induces a number of genes that encode the proteins promoting tolerance to freezing, mediated by ABA-dependent and ABA-independent pathways in plants. The cis-acting element called C/DRE is known to respond to low temperature indepe...

In a longitudinal qualitative study, the authors evaluated two health care quality improvement (QI) methods that emphasized either participation (local approach) or expertise (central approach). They followed teams using these approaches to develo...
