  • [Title] Direct costs of ankylosing spondylitis and its determinants: an analysis among three European countries.
  • OBJECTIVE: To assess direct costs associated with ankylosing spondylitis (AS).
  • To determine which variables, including country, predict costs.
  • Disease related healthcare resource use was measured and direct costs were calculated from a societal perspective (true cost estimates) and from a financial perspective (country-specific tariffs).
  • Mean annual societal direct costs for each patient were euro;2640, of which 82% were direct healthcare costs.
  • In univariate analysis costs were higher in the Netherlands than in Belgium, but this difference disappeared after adjusting for baseline differences in patients' characteristics among countries.
  • Mean annual direct costs from a financial perspective were euro;2122, euro;1402, and euro;941 per patient in the Netherlands, France, and Belgium, respectively.
  • For each country, costs from a financial perspective were significantly lower than costs from a societal perspective.
  • CONCLUSION: Direct costs for AS are substantial in three European countries but not significantly different after adjusting for baseline characteristics among countries.

  • Forecasts from Country choices, South-South partnerships and Clinton Foundation-UNITAID coalition show that present policies for brand ARVs are at the risk of flop in emerging South markets such as India, China, Thailand and Brazil.The dynamics explored in this article highlight the risks the originator companies are running in the emerging markets, along with their interest in direct agreements with the generic industry for the manufacturing and marketing of ARVs.Resulting information here would suggest the brand enterprises:To look for fast registration of their ARVs by regulatory authorities in all countries enlisted for differential pricing.To secure all formulations differentiated prices.To align with the Clinton-UNITAID prices for the corresponding generics.To pursue flexible negotiations with the generic companies to secure both counterparts long-term advantages.

  • [Title] Can the Direct Medical Cost of Chronic Disease Be Transferred across Different Countries? Using Cost-of-Illness Studies on Type 2 Diabetes, Epilepsy and Schizophrenia as Examples.
  • OBJECTIVES: To systematically review cost of illness studies for schizophrenia (SC), epilepsy (EP) and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and explore the transferability of direct medical cost across countries.
  • METHODS: A comprehensive literature search was performed to yield studies that estimated direct medical costs.
  • Both parametric (Random-effects model) and non-parametric (Boot-strapping) meta-analyses were performed to pool the converted raw cost data (expressed as percentage of GDP/capita of the country where the study was conducted).
  • Significant variances were detected inter- and intra-disease classes for the direct medical costs.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Converting the raw cost data into percentage of GDP/capita of individual country was demonstrated to be a feasible approach to transfer the direct medical cost across countries.
  • The approach from our study to obtain an estimated direct cost value along with the size of specific disease population from each jurisdiction could be used for a quick check on the economic burden of particular disease for countries without such data.

  • Many countries are struggling to provide universal access to ARVs for all people living with HIV and AIDS.
  • Although substantial price reductions of ARVs have occurred, especially between 2002 and 2008, achieving sustainable access for the next several decades remains a major challenge for most low- and middle-income countries.
  • Logistic regression models were used to identify the characteristics of those countries which procure below the highest and lowest direct manufactured costs.
  • RESULTS: Three key factors appear to have an influence on a country's ARV prices: (a) whether the product is generic or not;.
  • (b) the socioeconomic status of the country;.
  • (c) whether the country is a member of the Clinton HIV/AIDS Initiative.
  • Factors which did not influence procurement below the highest direct manufactured costs were HIV prevalence, procurement volume, whether the country belongs to the least developed countries or a focus country of the United States President's Emergency Plan For AIDS Relief.

  • [Title] Variance and covariance components for weaning weight for Herefords in three countries.
  • Estimation was done using a complete animal model, relatively large data sets, and the same methodology for the three countries in order to determine whether genetic parameters for weaning weight were homogeneous across environments.
  • Ten samples were obtained from each country by eliminating data from small herds with fewer than 500 records, selecting herds at random from the entire data set after removing the small herds, and then retaining the direct-sire-connected contemporary groups within each sample.
  • The estimates were pooled by calculating the arithmetic mean of the 10 samples from within each country.
  • Direct and maternal (in parentheses) heritability estimates were .24 (.16), .20 (.16), and .23 (.18) for USA, Canada, and Uruguay, respectively.
  • Covariance between direct and maternal was negative in all countries, accounting for 6, 8, and 10% of the total phenotypic variation, and the total dam effect was 32.5, 37.0, and 34.0% in USA, Canada, and Uruguay, respectively.
  • Total heritabilities were similar among the countries, with values of .19, .19, and .17 for the three respective countries.
  • The similarity of genetic and environmental parameters across the three countries suggests that joint genetic evaluation is feasible across environments provided that the genotype x environment interaction is negligible and can be ignored.

  • [Title] Increase in direct diabetes-related costs and resource use in the 6 months following initiation of insulin in patients with type 2 diabetes in five European countries: data from the INSTIGATE study.
  • BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to describe the resource use and associated direct costs of diabetes care for patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus in the 6 months before and after initiation of insulin therapy.
  • Direct medical costs were evaluated from the national health care system (third-party payer) perspective at 2006 prices.
  • In all countries in our study, mean total direct costs per patient increased in the 6-month follow-up period, compared with the 6-month period prior to insulin initiation, and ranged from €577 in Greece to €1402 in France.
  • CONCLUSION: In all countries, the mean total direct cost of care for diabetes increased after starting insulin.
  • The breakdown of total direct costs by expenditure category varied considerably across countries, reflecting differences in resource use patterns, prices of medical resources, and different health care systems.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • CONTEXT: The mortality numbers and rates of chronic disease are rising faster in developing than in developed countries.
  • This article compares prevailing explanations of population chronic disease trends with theoretical and empirical models of population chronic disease epidemiology and assesses some economic consequences of the growth of chronic diseases in developing countries based on the experiences of developed countries.
  • METHODS: Four decades of male mortality rates of cardiovascular and chronic noncommunicable diseases were regressed on changes in and levels of country income per capita, market integration, foreign direct investment, urbanization rates, and population aging in fifty-six countries for which comparative data were available.
  • Neoclassical economic growth models were used to estimate the effect of the mortality rates of chronic noncommunicable diseases on economic growth in high-income OECD countries.
  • FINDINGS: Processes of economic growth, market integration, foreign direct investment, and urbanization were significant determinants of long-term changes in mortality rates of heart disease and chronic noncommunicable disease, and the observed relationships with these social and economic factors were roughly three times stronger than the relationships with the population's aging.
  • In low-income countries, higher levels of country income per capita, population urbanization, foreign direct investment, and market integration were associated with greater mortality rates of heart disease and chronic noncommunicable disease, less increased or sometimes reduced rates in middle-income countries, and decreased rates in high-income countries.
  • Rising chronic disease mortality rates will significantly reduce economic growth in developing countries and further widen the health and economic gap between the developed and developing world.

  • We also report on these workers' experiences in the United States and the impact their migration has on their home countries.
  • Finally, we present policy strategies to increase the benefits of health care worker migration to the United States while mitigating its negative effects on the workers' home countries.
  • These strategies include attracting more people with legal permanent residency status into the health workforce, reimbursing home countries for the cost of educating health workers who subsequently migrate to the United States, improving policies to facilitate the entry of direct care workers into the country, advancing efforts to promote and monitor ethical migration and recruitment practices, and encouraging the implementation of programs by US employers to improve the experience of immigrating health workers.

  • [Title] Evaluation of insulin initiation on resource utilization and direct costs of treatment over 12 months in patients with type 2 diabetes in Europe: results from INSTIGATE and TREAT observational studies.
  • OBJECTIVES: To describe the changes in resource utilization in seven European countries (Germany, Greece, Portugal, Romania, Sweden, Spain, and Turkey) and direct costs in four European countries (Germany, Spain, Sweden, and Greece) over the first 12 months of insulin treatment in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM).
  • Contributors to total direct costs differed between countries.
  • Ranges of total mean direct costs over the 6-month period before insulin initiation were €489.10-€658.50 (Greece-Spain); 0-6 months after insulin initiation, €573.40-€1084.70 (Greece-Spain); and 6-12 months after insulin initiation, €495.80-€859.30 (Greece-Germany).
  • Thus, the mean cost of treatment increased in all countries in the first 6 months after insulin initiation and then returned to baseline except in Germany.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Contributors to total cost differed between countries, potentially reflecting local clinical practice patterns and insulin regimens.
  • In each country, mean direct total costs of T2DM care increased during the first 6 months after insulin initiation and decreased thereafter.

  • Data from 19 countries and 123,833 national sires' breeding value were used for this purpose.
  • Trait definitions and national genetic evaluation procedures were first summarized; and this showed that differences among countries existed.
  • International breeding values for direct longevity were calculated using a multi-trait across-country evaluation model.
  • Estimated genetic correlations presented in this study were similar to those presented in the literature and, in general, differed from unity because of differences in trait definitions, culling reasons, data included, evaluation procedures, genotype-environment interactions, and weak genetic ties among countries.
  • Three out of 15 countries published international EBV of direct longevity only and 12 out of 15 countries combined direct longevity with predictors (combined longevity).

  • [Title] [Methodical approaches to surveys of general morbidity in the population of other countries].
  • General morbidity surveys of the population in western countries are based on interviews, while in socialist countries general morbidity surveys are usually done by direct medical examination or by assessment of the attended morbidity, most frequently, however, a combination of both approaches is used.
  • Neither in interviews nor in the method based on direct or indirect medical examination so far sufficient unification of methodological approaches has been achieved to compare, based on these results, the health status of the population in different countries.

  • [Title] Reliable direct measurement of causes of death in low- and middle-income countries.
  • BACKGROUND: Most of the 48 million annual deaths in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) occur without medical attention at the time of death so that the causes of death (COD) are largely unknown.
  • Indirect methods to estimate COD for most countries are inadequate, mainly because they currently rely on an average ratio of 1 nationally representative COD to every 850 estimated deaths in order to measure the cause of 25 million deaths across 110 LMICs.
  • Direct measurement of COD is far more reliable and relevant for country priorities.
  • Five feasible methods to expand COD data are: sample registration systems (which form the basis for the ongoing Million Death Study in India; MDS); strengthening the INDEPTH network of 42 demographic surveillance sites; adding retrospective COD surveys to the demographic household and health surveys in 90 countries; post-census retrospective mortality surveys; and for smaller countries, systematic assembly of health records.

  • Interestingly, a common observation is that in AS indirect costs are higher than the use of direct healthcare resources.
  • Country, age, gender, and severity of the diseases impact on per patient annual costs AS related.
  • The differences observed among countries on absolute and relative (compared with direct costs) amounts of indirect costs can be explained with the capability of a country of actually measure productivity losses and indirect costs.

  • RESULTS: The analysis revealed that: fifteen countries spent less than 4.5% of their GDP on health; forty four countries spent less than 15% of their national annual budget on health; sixty three percent of the governments in the Region spent less than US$10 per person per year; fifty per cent of the total expenditure on health in 24 countries came from government sources; prepaid health financing mechanisms cover only a small proportion of populations in the Region; private spending constituted over 40% of the total expenditure on health in 31; direct out-of-pocket expenditures constituted over 50% of the private health expenditure in 38 countries.
  • CONCLUSION: Every country needs to develop clear pro-poor health financing policy and a comprehensive health financing strategic plan with a clear roadmap of how it plans to transit from the current health financing state dominated by inequitable, catastrophic and impoverishing direct out-of-pocket payments to a visionary scenario of universal coverage.
  • The strategic plan should strengthening of health sector advocacy and health financing capacities, health economics evidence generation and utilisation in decision-making, making better use of available and expected resources, monitoring of equity in financing, strengthening of the exemption mechanisms, managed removal of direct out-of-pocket payments (for countries that choose to), and improving country-led sectoral coordination mechanisms (e.g.

  • A geographically indirect immigrant is an individual legally admitted to Canada whose country of last permanent residence differs from country of birth.
  • Relative to geographically direct immigrants, geographically indirect immigrants tend to be older, more educated, and more highly skilled.
  • Moreover, if they were not born in an English or French speaking country, indirect immigrants are more likely to speak English and/or French capably than direct migrants born in such countries.
  • This model suggests that indirect migrants tend to be influenced by personal characteristics (age, sex, marital status, occupation, language ability), as well as by various characteristics of the country of birth (distance from Canada, income level, political conditions). "

  • While our analyses are not without their limitations, and the lack of comparability across instruments precludes a direct comparison across countries, there is no doubt that health expenditure contributes substantially to the impoverishment of households-increasing the incidence of poverty and pushing poor households into deeper poverty-in each country.
  • Informal payments are substantial in all countries, and are particularly high in Albania.
  • As countries in the sub-region continue the process of health system reform, an important policy question should be how to protect vulnerable groups from the catastrophic and impoverishing effects of health care expenditure.

  • [Title] Mediated, moderated and direct effects of country of residence, age, and gender on the cognitive and social determinants of adolescent smoking in Spain and the UK: a cross-sectional study.
  • Distal factors such as country of residence, age and gender are external to the model.
  • Participants' age, gender, smoking intentions and ASE determinant scores were identified and linear regression analysis was used to examine the mediated, moderated and direct effects of country of residence, age and gender on participants' smoking intentions.
  • The distribution of ASE determinant scores varied by country and predicted intention.
  • The influence of each ASE determinant on intention was moderated by country.
  • Country had a large direct influence on intention (1.72 points on a 7 point scale) but the effects of age and gender were mediated by the ASE determinants.
  • CONCLUSION: The ASE model may not capture important cultural factors related to adolescent smoking and the relative contribution of particular ASE determinants to adolescent smoking intentions may differ between countries.
  • Future European trans-national adolescent smoking prevention programmes may benefit from greater understanding of country-level cultural norms.

  • [Title] Medical resource utilisation and cost of care for women seeking treatment for urinary incontinence in an outpatient setting. Examples from three countries participating in the PURE study.
  • OBJECTIVE: To describe the medical resource use and direct costs of treatment for women with urinary incontinence (UI) in European countries.
  • SETTING: Investigators being either general practitioners (GPs) and/or specialists, i.e. urologists and gynaecologists, in 14 European countries participated in PURE.
  • The direct medical costs were calculated by attaching the unit costs from the perspective of the relevant health insurance in each country to the country-specific resource use.
  • RESULTS: Variation in medical resource use and cost of treatment between the three countries was observed, reflective of the differences in the healthcare systems and whether specialists and/or GPs provided the care.
  • In all three countries most of the women had used protective pads, which more than half the patients paying for them out-of-pocket, despite potential healthcare reimbursement schemes.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our study provides an estimation of resource use and costs associated with UI in treatment-seeking European women, exemplified here in three countries.

  • [Title] A cross-national profile of bullying and victimization among adolescents in 40 countries.
  • OBJECTIVES:. (1) To compare the prevalence of bullying and victimization among boys and girls and by age in 40 countries. (2) In 6 countries, to compare rates of direct physical, direct verbal, and indirect bullying by gender, age, and country.
  • METHODS: Cross-sectional self-report surveys including items on bullying and being bullied were obtained from nationally representative samples of 11, 13 and 15 year old school children in 40 countries, N = 202,056.
  • Six countries (N = 29,127 students) included questions about specific types of bullying (e. g., direct physical, direct verbal, indirect).
  • RESULTS: Exposure to bullying varied across countries, with estimates ranging from 8.6% to 45.2% among boys, and from 4.8% to 35.8% among girls.
  • Adolescents in Baltic countries reported higher rates of bullying and victimization, whereas northern European countries reported the lowest prevalence.
  • Boys reported higher rates of bullying in all countries.
  • Rates of victimization were higher for girls in 29 of 40 countries.
  • Rates of victimization decreased by age in 30 of 40 (boys) and 25 of 39 (girls) countries.
  • CONCLUSION: There are lessons to be learned from the current research conducted in countries where the prevalence is low that could be adapted for use in countries with higher prevalence.

  • [Title] A cost-effectiveness analysis of immunotherapy with SQ allergen extract for patients with seasonal allergic rhinoconjunctivitis in selected European countries.
  • SCOPE: In this paper we investigate the cost-effectiveness of immunization therapy with Alutard SQ (ASQ) and compare the cost-effectiveness in countries where the therapy has been in use in order to assess the impact of national therapeutic practices on the results of health economic assessments.
  • FINDINGS: The computations result in cost-effectiveness ratios for allergen immunization between 10,000 euros and 20,000 euros per QALY even without provision for indirect costs, and achieving dominance in most countries where indirect costs have also been taken into account.
  • The country comparisons show that the direct cost of administrating the up-dosing and maintenance differs considerably between countries, and that the cost of medical staff is substantial, constituting in most cases more than half of the direct costs of the immunization therapy.
  • CONCLUSION: The study shows that immunotherapy with SQ allergen extract is cost-effective in a wide range of national environments, and that cost-effectiveness differences by country are largely a result of different practices in the up-dosing phase.

  • Taking into account feasibility, political and technical criteria, three Latin American countries were selected as study populations: Mexico, Nicaragua and Peru.
  • In the second phase, the study referred to primary data collected in a survey of key personnel from the health sectors of each country.
  • Taking into account the changes implemented in the three countries, as well as the strengths and weaknesses of each country in financing and decentralization, a rule for decision-making is proposed that attempts to identify the main financial changes implemented in each country and the basic indicators that can be used in future years to direct the planning, assessment, adjustment and correction of health financing and decentralization.

  • [Title] A network analysis of countries' export flows: firm grounds for the building blocks of the economy.
  • In this paper we analyze the bipartite network of countries and products from UN data on country production.
  • We define the country-country and product-product projected networks and introduce a novel method of filtering information based on elements' similarity.
  • As a result we find that country clustering reveals unexpected socio-geographic links among the most competing countries.
  • To overcome such an issue, we introduce an alternative methodology (based on biased Markov chains) that allows to rank countries in a conceptually consistent way.
  • Our analysis uncovers a strong non-linear interaction between the diversification of a country and the ubiquity of its products, thus suggesting the possible need of moving towards more efficient and direct non-linear fixpoint algorithms to rank countries and products in the global market.

  • In order to identify the country of growth of Sophora flavescens by chemical fingerprinting, extracts of plants grown in China and Japan were analyzed using direct analysis in real time mass spectrometry (DART)-MS.
  • The peaks characteristic of each country of growth were statistically analyzed using a volcano plot to summarize the relationship between the p-values of a statistical test and the magnitude of the difference in the peak intensities of the samples in the groups.
  • Therefore, differences in selected peak patterns may allow identification of the country of growth of S. flavescens.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: The impact of immigration on health services utilisation has been analysed by several studies performed in countries with lower levels of immigration than Spain.
  • The country of origin, gender, age, discharge-related circumstances (hospital admission, discharge to home, or death), medical specialty, and variable cost related to medical care were registered.
  • Immigrants were grouped into those from high-income countries (IHIC) and those from low-income countries (ILIC) and the average direct cost was compared by country of origin.
  • A multivariate linear mixed model of direct costs was adjusted by country of origin (classified in five groups) and by the individual variables of age, gender, hospital admission, and death as a cause of discharge.
  • No differences were found between IHIC and ILIC, suggesting that this result was due to the ease of access to emergency services and to lack of knowledge about the country's health system rather than to poor health status resulting from immigrants' socioeconomic position.

  • [Title] Organization of nursing care in three Nordic countries: relationships between nurses' workload, level of involvement in direct patient care, job satisfaction, and intention to leave.
  • Despite similarities, there are differences in the working situations for RNs within these Nordic countries.
  • The aim of this study was to analyze associations between RNs' patient workload and level of involvement in direct patient care, their job satisfaction and intention to leave in these countries.
  • RESULTS: We found statistically significant differences in RNs' level of involvement in direct patient care (p < 0.001, Sweden compared to Norway and Finland), in patient workload and in number of patients needing ADL assistance and surveillance.
  • A U-formed relationship was found between level of involvement in direct patient care and intention to leave in Sweden, and more satisfaction among RNs in roles with more direct patient care (OR = 1.16, 1.02 ≤ CI95% ≤ 1.32).
  • Patient workload is associated with job satisfaction and intention to leave to some degree in all countries, i.e. greater patient workload, less job satisfaction and greater intention to leave.
  • CONCLUSIONS: This study suggests that more attention paid to patient mix, workload and role of RNs in patient care might potentially diminish intention to leave and increase job satisfaction in these Nordic countries.

  • The global Argentinean scientific research output is far below that of developed countries and has been affected in direct manner by economic, political and social disturbances in the country.
  • The comparative analysis within countries with health indicators similarities has shown a low biomedical and gastroenterology research output, however, the rate of acceptance at the 18 top gastroenterological journals is acceptable (15%).
  • We conclude that the Argentinean biomedical and gastroenterological research output is scanty compared with developed countries and countries with comparable health indicators.

  • Drug utilisation patterns for LABA have been described, but few studies have directly compared LABA use in different countries.
  • We aimed to compare the prevalence of LABA-containing prescriptions in five European countries using a standardised methodology.
  • Regarding the three indications, the highest age- and sex-standardised PPRs in all databases were found in patients with "asthma and COPD" but with large inter-country variation.
  • In those with asthma or COPD, lower PPRs and smaller inter-country variations were found.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Using a standardised protocol that allowed direct inter-country comparisons, we found highest rates of LABA-containing prescriptions in elderly patients and distinct differences in the increased utilisation of LABA-containing prescriptions within the study period throughout the five European countries.

  • [Title] The economic impact of overactive bladder syndrome in six Western countries.
  • OBJECTIVE: To calculate up-to-date estimates of the economic impact of overactive bladder syndrome (OAB) with and without urgency urinary incontinence (UUI) on the health sector of six countries (Canada, Germany, Italy, Spain, Sweden and the UK), as OAB is a significant health concern for adults aged >18 years living in Western countries.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: The prevalence data derived from the EPIC study were combined with healthcare resource-use data to derive current direct and indirect 1-year or annual cost of illness estimates for OAB including UUI in Canada, Germany, Italy, Spain, Sweden and the UK.
  • This model estimates the direct healthcare costs attributed to OAB, as well as the impact of work absenteeism.
  • RESULTS: The estimated average annual direct cost of OAB per patient ranged between 262 in Spain and 619 in Sweden.
  • The estimated total direct cost burden for OAB per country ranges between 333 million in Sweden and 1.2 billion in Germany and the total annual direct cost burden of OAB in these six countries is estimated at 3.9 billion.

  • However, few low and middle income countries (LMICs) have the infrastructure or capacity to provide surgical services to meet this growing need.
  • Equally, few of these countries have been assessed for key infrastructural capacity including surgical and anesthesia providers, equipment, and supplies.
  • Information was obtained from e-mail respondents at national health care addresses, and from individuals working in-country on anesthesia-related projects.
  • RESULTS: Workers from 6 of 98 countries responded to direct e-mail inquiries, and an additional five responses came from individuals who were working or had worked in-country at the time of the survey.
  • The data collected revealed that the per-capita anesthesia provider ratio in the countries surveyed was often 100 times lower than in developed countries.
  • CONCLUSIONS: This pilot study revealed that the number of anesthesia providers available per capita of population is markedly reduced in low and lower middle income countries compared to developed countries.
  • As anesthesia providers are an integral part of the delivery of safe and effective surgical care, it is essential that more data is collected to fully understand the deficiencies in workforce and capacity in low and middle income countries.

  • The Ebola virus disease (Ebola) outbreak in West Africa has claimed approximately 11,300 lives (1), and the magnitude and course of the epidemic prompted many nonaffected countries to prepare for Ebola cases imported from affected countries.
  • On October 21, DHS exercised its authority to direct all travelers flying into the United States from an Ebola-affected country to arrive at one of the five participating airports.
  • At the time, the Ebola-affected countries included Guinea, Liberia, Mali, and Sierra Leone.
  • CDC also recommended "direct active monitoring" of persons with a higher risk for Ebola virus exposure, including health care workers who had provided direct patient care in Ebola-affected countries.
  • Direct active monitoring required direct observation of the person being monitored by the local health authority at least once daily (5).
  • Data collected on persons who required direct active monitoring are not included in this report.

  • OBJECTIVES: To investigate the prevalence and associated psychosocial factors of occasional and repetitive direct self-injurious behavior (D-SIB), such as self-cutting, -burning, -biting, -hitting, and skin damage by other methods, in representative adolescent samples from 11 European countries.
  • METHODS: Cross-sectional assessment of adolescents was performed within the European Union funded project, Saving and Empowering Young Lives in Europe (SEYLE), which was conducted in 11 European countries.
  • Lifetime prevalence ranged from 17.1% to 38.6% across countries.
  • Associations between psychosocial variables and D-SIB were strongly influenced by both gender and country.
  • Prevalence as well as psychosocial correlates seems to be significantly influenced by both gender and country.

  • Higher reliabilities from larger genotype files promote cooperation across country borders.
  • Genomic information can be exchanged across countries using simple conversion equations, by modifying multi-trait across-country evaluation (MACE) to account for correlated residuals originating from the use of foreign evaluations, or by multi-trait analysis of genotypes for countries that use the same reference animals.
  • METHODS: Traditional MACE assumes independent residuals because each daughter is measured in only one country.
  • Genomic MACE could account for residual correlations using daughter equivalents from genomic data as a fraction of the total in each country and proportions of bulls shared.
  • MACE methods developed to combine separate within-country genomic evaluations were compared to direct, multi-country analysis of combined genotypes using simulated genomic and phenotypic data for 8,193 bulls in nine countries.
  • RESULTS: Reliabilities for young bulls were much higher for across-country than within-country genomic evaluations as measured by squared correlations of estimated with true breeding values.
  • Sharing of reference genotypes among countries created large residual correlations, especially for young bulls, that are accounted for in genomic MACE.
  • CONCLUSIONS: International genomic evaluations can be computed either by modifying MACE to account for residual correlations across countries or by multi-trait evaluation of combined genotype files.

  • [Title] An estimate of the worldwide prevalence and direct costs of dementia in 2003.
  • The worldwide costs of dementia were estimated from prevalence figures for different regions, and cost-of-illness studies from key countries using a model based on the relationship between direct costs of care per demented and the gross domestic product per capita in each country.
  • The worldwide direct costs for dementia in 2003 are estimated at 156 billion USD in the main scenario based on a worldwide prevalence of 27.7 million demented persons (sensitivity analysis: 129-159 billion USD).
  • Although there are several sources of uncertainty, it is obvious that the worldwide costs are substantial and the expected increase in elderly people in the developing countries presents a great challenge.

  • [Title] The feasibility and appropriateness of introducing nursing curricula from developed countries into developing countries: a comprehensive systematic review.
  • Objectives  The objective of this review was to appraise and synthesise the best available evidence on the feasibility and appropriateness of introducing nursing curricula from developed countries into developing countries.
  • Inclusion criteria  This review considered quantitative and qualitative research papers that addressed the feasibility and appropriateness of introducing developed countries' nursing curricula into developing countries.
  • Another two opinion papers evaluated the adaptability of another country curriculum models in their countries.
  • Conclusion  The evidence regarding the feasibility and appropriateness of introducing developed countries' nursing curricula into developing countries is weak because of the paucity of high-quality studies.
  • However, some lower-level evidence suggesting that direct transfer of the curriculum model from one country to another is not appropriate without first assessing the cultural context of both countries.
  • Second, the approach of considering international, regional and local experiences more feasible and presumably a more effective strategy for adapting of a country's curriculum into a culturally or economically different country.

  • The authors first cite international ethical principles that have been established in the developed countries to serve as a guide in dealing with the ethical problems that arise in this type of research.
  • These principles should always be borne in mind by every investigator, regardless of the country where the research is being done.
  • The paper goes on to briefly review some of the circumstances in certain Latin American and Caribbean countries that could pose practical limitations for direct application of the ethical principles described.

  • [Title] Country development and manuscript selection bias: a review of published studies.
  • We aimed to compare the methodological quality and statistical appeal of trials from countries with different development status and to determine their association with the journal impact factors and language of publication.
  • METHODS: Based on the World Bank income criteria countries were divided into four groups.
  • Country income had an inverse linear association with the presence of randomization (chi2 for trend = 5.6, p = 0.02) and a direct association with the use of blinding (chi2 for trend = 6.9, p = 0.008); although in low income countries the probability of blinding was increased from 36% in 1993 to 46% in 2003.
  • CONCLUSION: The impact of country development on manuscript selection bias is considerable and may be increasing over time.

  • [Title] Cost of dengue outbreaks: literature review and country case studies.
  • METHODS: Economic evidence on dengue outbreaks was gathered by conducting a literature review and collecting information on the costs of recent dengue outbreaks in 4 countries: Peru, Dominican Republic, Vietnam, and Indonesia.
  • Nine papers focussed on the cost-effectiveness of dengue vaccines or dengue vector control; they do not provide any direct information on cost of dengue outbreaks, but their modelling methodologies could guide future research on cost-effectiveness of national surveillance systems.The country case studies--conducted in very different geographic and health system settings - unveiled rough estimates for 2011 outbreak costs of: 12 million US$ in Vietnam, 6.75 million US$ in Indonesia, 4.5 million US$ in Peru and 2.8 million US$ in Dominican Republic (all in 2012 US$).
  • The proportions of the different cost components (vector control; surveillance; information, education and communication; direct medical and indirect costs), as percentage of total costs, differed across the respective countries.
  • Resources used for dengue disease control and treatment were country specific.

  • [Title] Short communication: Difficulties in estimating across-country genetic correlations for weakly linked bull populations.
  • Estimates of the same genetic correlation differed noticeably depending on estimation strategy (up to 1.03 units) for country-pairs with no or few direct genetic links.
  • Differences in estimated genetic correlations decreased with an increasing number of genetic ties between countries, and, essentially, no differences were found between estimated genetic correlations based on 61 common bulls, regardless of the estimation strategy used.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Estimating the cost of cervical cancer screening in five developing countries.
  • For the latter, it is important to use country-specific data when possible and to represent cost differences between countries that might make one strategy more or less attractive than another strategy locally.
  • As part of a CEA of cervical cancer screening in five developing countries, we supplemented limited primary cost data by developing other estimation techniques for direct medical and non-medical costs associated with alternative screening approaches using one of three initial screening tests: simple visual screening, HPV DNA testing, and cervical cytology.
  • METHODS: To supplement direct medical costs, including staff, supplies, and equipment depreciation using country-specific data, we used alternative techniques to quantify cervical cytology and HPV DNA laboratory sample processing costs.
  • A plausible range of the cost of patient time spent seeking and receiving screening was estimated using only formal sector employment and wages as well as using both formal and informal sector participation and country-specific minimum wages.
  • Data sources included primary data from country-specific studies, international databases, international prices, and expert opinion.
  • From a payer perspective, laboratory transport and processing accounted for 18-48% and 25-60% of total direct medical costs of I$4.11-19.96 and I$10.57-28.18 respectively.
  • CONCLUSION: Cost estimates of laboratory processing, sample transport, and patient time account for a significant proportion of total cervical cancer screening costs in five developing countries and provide important inputs for CEAs of alternative screening modalities.

  • Although all samples were obtained from individuals residing in Uzbekistan, individuals with direct ancestry from neighboring Central Asian countries are included.
  • Individuals of Uzbek ancestry represent five distinct geographic regions of Uzbekistan: Fergana, Karakalpakstan, Khorezm, Qashkadarya, and Tashkent.
  • Individuals with direct ancestry in nearby countries originate from Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Afghanistan, Turkmenistan, and Tajikistan.
  • Despite their current close geographic proximity, the populations with ancestry in neighboring countries show little sign of admixture and retain the primary mtDNA patterns of their source populations.
  • The genetic distances and haplogroup distributions among the ethnic populations are more indicative of a broad east-west cline among their source populations than of their relatively small geographic distances from one another in Uzbekistan.

  • Direct access is sometimes referred to as "self-referral"--the patient does not require a physician's referral prior to receiving physiotherapy treatment.
  • The article provides insight from the experience of countries where direct access is accepted practice, which will serve as a theoretical and scientific basis for the use of direct access in Israel.
  • Findings include the influence of direct access on the health care system: cost-benefit analysis, advantages and challenges, as well as the perspective of main stakeholders: physicians, physical therapists and patient-clients. .

  • International health advocates have traditionally focused on calling for external strategies for achieving health goals in developing countries, such as more foreign aid, foreign direct investment, loans, and debt cancellation, as opposed to internal approaches, such as building domestic productive capacity and accumulating capital.
  • They have largely neglected questions of development economics, particularly the effectiveness, or lack thereof, of the currently dominant neoliberal development model promoted by the rich countries and aid agencies for poor countries.
  • While critics have been correct to blame the International Monetary Fund for its policies curtailing public health spending in developing countries, their analysis generally neglects the underlying issue of why developing countries are seemingly unable to build their domestic tax base on which health budgets depend.
  • International health advocates should engage with such macroeconomic questions and challenge the failures of the dominant neoliberal economic model that blocks countries from industrializing and building their own productive capacities with which to generate their own resources for financing their health budgets over time.

  • [Title] Does antenatal care matter in the use of skilled birth attendance in rural Africa: a multi-country analysis.
  • In this study, we revisit this relation in the rural areas of four countries: Ghana, Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania.
  • Using a structural equation modeling approach that corrects for endogeneity, in all four countries we find that the usual simpler probit (or logit) models tend to underestimate the direct effect of antenatal care on skilled birth attendance.
  • Furthermore, in two of the countries, this estimated effect is mediated by the range of services offered to women during antenatal care.

  • Recruitment of nurses by industrialized nations from developing countries has been common practice for decades.
  • The direct impact on nurse emigration emphasizes the ethical, economic, and social inequalities between source and destination countries.
  • It is often more cost-effective for industrialized countries to recruit from developing countries; however, the depletion of source country resources has created a global healthcare crisis.
  • Destination countries are being challenged on the ethical implications of aggressive recruitment and their lack of developing a sustainable self-sufficient domestic workforce.
  • Similarly, source countries are confronting the same challenges as they struggle to fund and educate adequate numbers of nurses for domestic needs and emigrant replacement.
