The new edition of this classic text remains the definitive dictionary in epidemiology. In fact, it is more than a dictionary, with some reviewers remarking that if they had to limit their professional library to one volume, this would be the book they would choose. In the complex field of epidemiology, the definition and concise explanation of terms is a key to understanding epidemiologic concepts, and the dictionary goes beyond simple definitions, as it place each term firmly and clearly in it...

Even a quick glance at the titles of books and articles in recent medical and public health literature suggests that an important transition is underway. The terms ‘global’, ‘globalization’, and their variants are everywhere, and in the specific context of international public health, ‘global’ seems to be emerging as the preferred authoritative term.1 As one indicator, the number of entries under the rubrics ‘global’ and ‘international’ health in PubMed shows that ‘global’ health is rapidly on t...

Introduction There has been an increase in global health courses at medical universities in high-income countries. Their effect on students, however, is poorly understood. In 2016 an elective global surgery course was introduced for medical students at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden. The course includes a theoretical module in Sweden and a two-week clinical rotation in Uganda. The present study aimed to assess the format and determine its effect on students’ knowledge of global surgery and appr...

The ability to conduct cross-disciplinary research in international collaborations is critical for improving global health. Building on a recent literature review, we investigated practical actions that can support effective cross-disciplinary global health research in real life using a North-South global health programme as a case study. The programme involved research teams from ten African countries from multiple disciplinary backgrounds. We compared the actions used by the programme for plan...

Abstract null null Introduction null The implementation of culturally competent healthcare services has been considered a key strategy for the provision of patient-centered care; however, a need remains to address the requirements of teaching cultural competence, including identifying gaps, designing and evaluating curricula, and assessing students' progress toward program objectives. The objective of this study was to explore the applicability of the Self-Assessment of Perceived Level of Cultur...

The COVID-19 pandemic plunged hospital systems into resource-deprived conditions unprecedented since the 1918 flu pandemic. It brought forward concerns around ethical management of scarcity, racism and distributive justice, cross-disciplinary collaboration, provider wellness, and other difficult themes. We, a group of medical educators and global health educators and clinicians, use the education literature to argue that experience gained through global health activities has greatly contributed ...

This paper aims to analyze the right to access the benefits of scientific and technological development, using the vaccines against COVID-19 as a study case. The text is methodologically supported by articles in the UNESCO Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights (DBHR) that have a direct relationship with the proposed situation. The study begins with the presentation of the DUBDH and a brief history of its basic assumptions. Based on Articles 21 and 24, which deal respectively with T...

Global health challenges are likely to be aggravated in the coming years by rapid climate change and environmental degradation. To address the resulting health inequities, nurses need an integrated understanding of environmental and social determinants of health. This study adopts an explorative inductive approach to examine how global health and sustainability are expressed the course syllabi of undergraduate nursing programmes (n = 24) in Sweden. After excluding biomedical and other unrelated ...

Summary null null Cancer has not been an explicit priority of Canada's international health and development agenda, but it is key to realising the country's Sustainable Development Goal commitments. Multiple converging political, health, and social forces could now drive support for a more integrated Canadian approach to global cancer control. Success will depend on the extent to which Canadian leaders and institutions can build consensus as a community and agree to work together. Collaboration ...

Summary null null Cancer mortality rates in low-income and middle-income countries (LMICs) are unacceptably high, requiring both collaborative global effort and in-country solutions. Experience has shown that working together in policy, clinical practice, education, training, and research leads to bidirectional benefit for LMICs and high-income countries. For over 60 years, the UK National Health Service has benefited from recruitment from LMICs, providing the UK with a rich diaspora of trained ...

INTRODUCTION Breast cancer is an important public health problem worldwide, with important disparities in incidence, mortality, and survival rates between developed and developing countries due to inequalities regarding access to measures for the prevention and treatment of the disease. In Brazil, there are higher rates of incidence and a downward trend in mortality in regions of greater socioeconomic development. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effect of age, period, and birth cohort on breast cancer...
