Non-communicable diseases are caused by different factors such as environment, heredity, or nutrition and lifestyle habits. According to the World Health Organization, non-communicable diseases account for 60% of deaths worldwide. Local and international experts are currently gathering in Johannesburg to find ways to minimise these health conditions. Professor Daya Reddy, president of the Academy of South Africa in studio.

Non-communicable diseases, UN summit seeks to curb world's leading cause of deathh.mov
19 September 2011 -- The United Nations heard calls today for an all-out attack on non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as cancer and diabetes with a summit meeting devoted to curbing the factors, like tobacco and alcohol use, behind the often preventable scourge that causes 63 per cent of all deaths. The two-day high-level General Assembly meeting, attended by more than 30 heads of State and Government and at least 100 other senior ministers and experts, is discussing a draft declaration calling for a multi-pronged campaign by governments, industry and civil society to set up by 2013 the plans needed to curb the risk factors behind the four groups of NCDs -- cardiovascular diseases, cancers, chronic respiratory diseases and diabetes.

Dr Maryam Ba-break on Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs)
In this short video, Dr Maryam Ba-Break gives an introduction to noncommunicable diseases (NCDs). The World Health Organization describe NCDs as those that are not passed from person to person. They are also known as chronic diseases and are often of long duration and slow progression. The four main types of noncommunicable diseases are cardiovascular diseases (like heart attacks and stroke), cancers, chronic respiratory diseases (such as chronic obstructed pulmonary disease and asthma) and diabetes. In this introductory video, Maryam also includes the public health impact of road traffic accidents, violence, alcohol and substance misuse. The global burden and threat of NCDs constitutes a major public health challenge that undermines social and economic development throughout the world, and inter alia has the effect of increasing inequalities between countries and within populations.
Commitment Announcement: Non-Communicable Diseases Cluster (CGI 2011)
President Bill Clinton introduces Her Royal Highness Princess Ghida Talal, who invites to the stage a group of CGI 2011 members who commit to taking action against the four major non-communicable diseases—heart disease, cancer, diabetes and chronic lung disease—that kill thirty-six million people every year. One-third of these deaths are people under the age of sixty living in low-income countries. If no action is taken, in the next twenty years cancer deaths in the developing world will increase by sixty percent.
Call to Action - We Must Tackle Non-Communicable Diseases
LillyPad Blog by David Marbaugh In his most recent column in Forbes.com, Lilly Chairman and CEO John Lechleiter, Ph.D., examines the correlation between health and wealth as it pertains to non-communicable diseases -- which include cardiovascular disease, cancer, chronic respiratory disease and diabetes. While many think of these diseases as typically effecting more affluent societies, John explains that nearly 80 percent of all NCDs today occur in low- and middle-income countries, due largely to changing lifestyles. As such, NCDs increase poverty and hinder economic growth in countries that can least afford it. The biopharmaceutical industry is playing its role in reducing NCDs by pursuing new treatments -- but John says that more holistic solutions are needed, especially in countries with less-developed health-care systems. To that end, John references a recently released series of policy briefs commissioned by the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers & Associations, which outlines key initiatives and provides recommendations for combating NCDs. The "roadmap" explains how improved cooperation across the public and private sectors could strengthen health care systems around the world and help achieve better health outcomes for patients in need.

The Nurse Combats Disease (Communicable Disease Center, 1962)
This program reviews with the aid of drawings the nurse's role in the prevention of disease. Emphasis is placed on factors which influence the transmission of disease. Techniques which can be used for preventing the transmission of disease are reviewed. Factors which affect the natural history of disease are also discussed. These factors include the characteristics of the organisms which cause disease and host resistance. Environmental factors such as climate which have an effect on disease and the organism's ability to resist it are identified. Factors which can improve host resistance are also reviewed. The nurse's role in maintaining a safe environment and educating the public in order to prevent disease is detailed.

Introduction to Public Health Surveillance
Ever wonder what public health surveillance is or why it’s important? Learn how we use public health surveillance to follow disease patterns and stop diseases in their tracks. Hear Dr. Ralph Cordell, an epidemiologist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, talk about what makes public health surveillance an important part of public health practice from his 40 years in the field. See how data collected by public health surveillance systems drive decisions for programs and policies.

What is DISEASE SURVEILLANCE? What does DISEASE SURVEILLANCE mean? DISEASE SURVEILLANCE meaning - DISEASE SURVEILLANCE definition - DISEASE SURVEILLANCE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Disease surveillance is an epidemiological practice by which the spread of disease is monitored in order to establish patterns of progression. The main role of disease surveillance is to predict, observe, and minimize the harm caused by outbreak, epidemic, and pandemic situations, as well as increase knowledge about which factors contribute to such circumstances. A key part of modern disease surveillance is the practice of disease case reporting. In modern times, reporting incidences of disease outbreaks has been transformed from manual record keeping, to instant worldwide internet communication. The number of cases could be gathered from hospitals - which would be expected to see most of the occurrences - collated, and eventually made public. With the advent of modern communication technology, this has changed dramatically. Organizations like the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) now can report cases and deaths from significant diseases within days - sometimes within hours - of the occurrence. Further, there is considerable public pressure to make this information available quickly and accurately. Formal reporting of notifiable infectious diseases is a requirement placed upon health care providers by many regional and national governments, and upon national governments by the World Health Organization to monitor spread as a result of the transmission of infectious agents. Since 1969, WHO has required that all cases of the following diseases be reported to the organization: cholera, plague, yellow fever, smallpox, relapsing fever and typhus. In 2005, the list was extended to include polio and SARS. Regional and national governments typically monitor a larger set of (around 80 in the U.S.) communicable diseases that can potentially threaten the general population. Tuberculosis, HIV, botulism, hantavirus, anthrax, and rabies are examples of such diseases. The incidence counts of diseases are often used as health indicators to describe the overall health of a population. As the lead organization in global public health, the WHO occupies a delicate role in global politics. It must maintain good relationships with each of the many countries in which it is active. As a result, it may only report results within a particular country with the agreement of the country's government. Because some governments regard the release of any information on disease outbreaks as a state secret, this can place the WHO in a difficult position. The WHO coordinated International Outbreak Alert and Response is designed to ensure "outbreaks of potential international importance are rapidly verified and information is quickly shared within the Network" but not necessarily by the public; integrate and coordinate "activities to support national efforts" rather than challenge national authority within that nation in order to "respect the independence and objectivity of all partners". The commitment that "All Network responses will proceed with full respect for ethical standards, human rights, national and local laws, cultural sensitivities and tradition" ensures each nation that its security, financial, and other interests will be given full weight. Testing for a disease can be expensive, and distinguishing between two diseases can be prohibitively difficult in many countries. One standard means of determining if a person has had a particular disease is to test for the presence of antibodies that are particular to this disease. In the case of H5N1, for example, there is a low pathogenic H5N1 strain in wild birds in North America that a human could conceivably have antibodies against. It would be extremely difficult to distinguish between antibodies produced by this strain, and antibodies produced by Asian lineage HPAI A(H5N1). Similar difficulties are common, and make it difficult to determine how widely a disease may have spread. There is currently little available data on the spread of H5N1 in wild birds in Africa and Asia. Without such data, predicting how the disease might spread in the future is difficult. Information that scientists and decision makers need to make useful medical products and informed decisions for health care, but currently lack include: 1. Surveillance of wild bird populations 2. Cell cultures of particular strains of diseases

Antibiotics, Antivirals, and Vaccines
Explore the basics of how antibiotics, antivirals, and vaccines work to help your immune system in the fight against pathogens! This Amoeba Sisters video also briefly introduces the lines of defense in the immune system and discusses how vaccines can be important for "herd immunity."

CDC General Vaccine Recommendation During Pregnancy: https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/pregnancy/hcp/guidelines.html Keep in mind that, as the note states in the video, a woman may be vaccinated against rubella as a child but find out when pregnant that she has a "low titer" of Rubella antibodies and therefore be vulnerable.

From Dialogue to Action | GBCHealth Conference 2013
The 2011 UN High-Level Meeting on Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) was a milestone event in global health. One of its most important outcomes was securing country-level commitments to establishing national NCD plans by 2013. Some countries have begun to integrate NCDs into their primary care systems, while exploring new approaches for supporting the chronic care needs created by many NCDs. Even with only limited new funds, integrating NCDs into health systems can result in substantial progress. The hope is that these more integrated approaches will gain efficiencies and stem the growth of funding needed to address the growing NCD burden. During this panel, government officials and corporate leaders will outline the approaches and resources they are implementing to support national NCD plans. We will explore how south-to-south cooperation is making an impact on planning and execution of NCD plans, and we'll discuss the development of integrated care systems, especially in low- and middle-income countries. Panelists will also discuss successful government/private sector partnerships.

Infectious and Non-Infectious Diseases
I joined Maker Studios & so can you! Click here to see if your channel qualifies for RPM Network/Maker Studios http://awe.sm/fHh3Z Infectious diseases, also known as transmissible diseases or communicable diseases comprise clinically evident illness (i.e., characteristic medical signs and/or symptoms of disease) resulting from the infection, presence and growth of pathogenic biological agents in an individual host organism. In certain cases, infectious diseases may be asymptomatic for much or even all of their course in a given host. In the latter case, the disease may only be defined as a "disease" (which by definition means an illness) in hosts who secondarily become ill after contact with an asymptomatic carrier. An infection is not synonymous with an infectious disease, as some infections do not cause illness in a host. Infectious pathogens include some viruses, bacteria, fungi, protozoa, multicellular parasites, and aberrant proteins known as prions. These pathogens are the cause of disease epidemics, in the sense that without the pathogen, no infectious epidemic occurs. The term infectivity describes the ability of an organism to enter, survive and multiply in the host, while the infectiousness of a disease indicates the comparative ease with which the disease is transmitted to other hosts. Transmission of pathogen can occur in various ways including physical contact, contaminated food, body fluids, objects, airborne inhalation, or through vector organisms. Infectious diseases are sometimes called "contagious" when they are easily transmitted by contact with an ill person or their secretions (e.g., influenza). Thus, a contagious disease is a subset of infectious disease that is especially infective or easily transmitted. Other types of infectious/transmissible/communicable diseases with more specialized routes of infection, such as vector transmission or sexual transmission, are usually not regarded as "contagious," and often do not require medical isolation (sometimes loosely called quarantine) of victims. However, this specialized connotation of the word "contagious" and "contagious disease" (easy transmissibility) is not always respected in popular use.

Professor Ha Thi Thu Bui, MD, PhD Rector, Hanoi University of Public Health Hanoi, Vietnam Assoc. Professor Minh Van Hoang, MD, PhD Vice-rector, Hanoi University of Public Health Hanoi, Vietnam About the lecture Professors Bui and Hoang will discuss the history of healthcare reform in Vietnam and highlight the many changes that have occurred over the past 25 years. The developments in socio-economic status of the country, health status and health system indicators in Vietnam have been significantly improved since 1989. Positive outcomes have resulted from a widespread health care delivery network, an increasing number of qualified health workers, and expanding national public health programs. However, there are still a number of challenging areas in Vietnam, particularly related to NCDs and their risk factors; aging; infectious diseases; and climate change related health problems. Professors Bui and Hoang will address these challenges, in addition to how healthcare providers and policy makers are responding to a shortage of health human resources in disadvantaged areas and inequities in health care. About the speakers Prof. Ha Thi Thu Bui graduated from Pirogov Russian National Research Medical University in 1991. She received her PhD degree from University of Wollongong, Australia in 2003. Prof. Bui is currently the Rector of the Hanoi University of Public Health, Vietnam. She specializes in reproductive health research and qualitative methodology.
