INTRODUCTION: Iodine deficiency disorders (IDDs) are a significant global public health issue that affects the physical and mental development of every age group, with children and nursing mothers being the most vulnerable. Approximately 50 million of approximately 2 billion people with iodine deficiency (ID) globally exhibit clinical symptoms. Identifying iodine levels using various techniques is important when considering treatment choices. Screening programs and early ID diagnostics are crucial for the follow-up of pregnant women, especially in iodine-deficient nations...

BACKGROUND: In previous studies, it has been observed that mother's perinatal mental health (PMH) problems can be improved by engaging in appropriate health care-seeking behaviors. However, the exact mechanism that influences the relationship between these two factors is still not fully understood. This cross-sectional study aims to examine the serial multiple mediating effects of perceived professional healthcare support (PPHS) and social structural factors on the association between care-seeking behavior and PMH...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the United States. However, current evidence on the association between muscle quality and CVD is limited. This study investigates the potential association between the muscle quality index (MQI) and the prevalence of CVD and CVD-related mortality. METHODS: Participants were selected from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) 2011-2014...

BACKGROUND: Accurate information is essential so that HIV infection can be detected in time for initiation of HIV/AIDS treatment. Immigrants are at high risk for delayed HIV testing and diagnosis, but foreign residents in Japan also seem to face barriers to accessing HIV/AIDS care. We aimed to assess their knowledge level of HIV/AIDS and awareness of public health centers in Japan (PHCs), and to explore factors related to these items. METHODS: We conducted a cross-sectional study of Brazilians, the largest group of foreigners living in Shiga, using an anonymous, self-administered questionnaire survey in Brazilian Portuguese and Japanese via the Internet and mail...

INTRODUCTION: During an infectious disease outbreak, primary preventive pre-exposure vaccination (PPV) could substantially increase the potential for its control, if uptake is sufficiently high. An important tool to increase PPV uptake, are communication strategies, with tailored messages targeted to modify determinants for PPV uptake. Here, we take the example of the 2022 mpox multicountry outbreak, as we inform the development of communication strategies by applying a theoretical framework for selecting effective communication strategies...

BACKGROUND: Recent deliberations by Australian public health researchers and practitioners produced an ethical framework of how decisions should be made to distribute pandemic influenza vaccine. The outcome of the deliberations was that the population should be considered in two categories, Level 1 and Level 2, with Level 1 groups being offered access to the pandemic influenza vaccine before other groups. However, the public health researchers and practitioners recognised the importance of making space for public opinion and sought to understand citizens values and preferences, especially First Nations peoples...

BACKGROUND: Regular participation in cervical cancer screening is critical to reducing mortality. Although certain sociodemographic factors are known to be associated with one-time participation in screening, little is known about other factors that could be related to regular participation. Therefore, this study evaluated the association between health-related behavioral factors and regular participation in cervical cancer screening. METHODS: The Lifelines population-based cohort was linked to data for cervical cancer screening from the Dutch Nationwide Pathology Databank...

Exposure to household air pollution (HAP) accounted for the loss of 86 million healthy lives in 2019, with almost half of all deaths due to lower respiratory infection among children under 5 years of age. Similarly, the situation in Punjab - Pakistan's largest province - is also not promising. This study was conducted to examine household energy consumption and respiratory symptoms among children under the age of five in rural and urban areas of Punjab. Using data from the Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) 2017-18, logistic regression models were applied to the data of a sample of 35,000 children under the age of five living in households with polluting heating fuels...

BACKGROUND: The discussion about breast cancer (BC) causation continues to be surrounded by a number of myths and misbeliefs. If efforts are misdirected towards reducing risk from false mythical causes, individuals might be less likely to consider and adopt risk-reducing behaviors for evidence-based BC causes. This national study aimed to assess the awareness of BC causation myths and misbeliefs among Palestinian women, and examine the factors associated with having good awareness. METHODS: This national cross-sectional study recruited adult women from government hospitals, primary healthcare centers, and public spaces in 11 governorates in Palestine...

BACKGROUND: The high under-five mortality rate (U5MR) in Africa is a significant public health concern. Previous studies have found that satellite retrieved light at night (LAN) data with long-term and global coverage can be used as a proxy for socio-economic development and urbanization. Currently, few studies on the effects of LAN on child mortality have been conducted in Africa, a region with varying levels of urbanization between countries. OBJECTIVE: To quantify the correlation between risk of child mortality and LAN as an indicator of urbanization and economic development in Africa...
