Mass gatherings medicine: publichealth issues arising from mass gathering religious and sporting events. Mass gathering events are associated with major publichealth challenges. The 2014 Lancet Series on the new discipline of mass gatherings medicine was launched at the World Health Assembly of Ministers of Health in Geneva in May, 2014. The Series covered the planning and surveillance systems used to monitor publichealth risks, publichealth threats, and experiences of health-care providers (...) from mass gathering events in 2012 and 2013. This follow-up Review focuses on the main publichealth issues arising from planned mass gathering events held between 2013 and 2018. We highlight publichealth and research data on transmission of infectious diseases and antibiotic-resistant bacteria, mass casualty incidents, and non-communicable diseases, including thermal disorders. In the events discussed in this Review, the combination of a large influx of people, many from countries with outbreak

Venezuela's publichealth crisis: a regional emergency. The economic crisis in Venezuela has eroded the country's health-care infrastructure and threatened the publichealth of its people. Shortages in medications, health supplies, interruptions of basic utilities at health-care facilities, and the emigration of health-care workers have led to a progressive decline in the operational capacity of health care. The effect of the crisis on publichealth has been difficult to quantify since (...) the Venezuelan Ministry of Health stopped publishing crucial publichealth statistics in 2016. We prepared a synthesis of health information, beyond what is available from other sources, and scholarly discussion of engagement strategies for the international community. Data were identified through searches in MEDLINE, PubMed, and the grey literature, through references from relevant articles, and governmental and non-governmental reports, and publicly available databases.

More talk than action: gender and ethnic diversity in leading publichealth universities. Improving the career progression of women and ethnic minorities in publichealth universities has been a longstanding challenge, which we believe might be addressed by including staff diversity data in university rankings. We present findings from a mixed methods investigation of gender-related and ethnicity-related differences in career progression at the 15 highest ranked social sciences and public (...) health universities in the world, including an analysis of the intersection between sex and ethnicity. Our study revealed that clear gender and ethnic disparities remain at the most senior academic positions, despite numerous diversity policies and action plans reported. In all universities, representation of women declined between middle and senior academic levels, despite women outnumbering men at the junior level. Ethnic-minority women might have a magnified disadvantage because ethnic-minority
Law enforcement and publichealth: recognition and enhancement of joined-up solutions. Public security and law enforcement have a crucial but often largely unacknowledged role in protecting and promoting publichealth. Although the security sector is a key partner in many specific publichealth programmes, its identity as an important part of the publichealth endeavour is rarely recognised. This absence of recognition has resulted in a generally inadequate approach to research (...) and investigation of ways in which law enforcement, especially police at both operational and strategic levels, can be effectively engaged to actively promote and protect publichealth as part of a broader multisectoral publichealth effort. However, the challenge remains to engage police to consider their role as one that serves a publichealth function. The challenge consists of overcoming the continuous and competitive demand for police to do so-called policing, rather than serve a broader publichealth
PublicHealth Planning for Wildfire Smoke PublicHealth Planning for Wildfire Smoke_MAR16 0 | Page PublicHealth Planning for Wildfire Smoke A multi-jurisdictional qualitative inquiry into current publichealth planning for wildfire smoke events; the capacity to respond and perceptions of wildfire smoke as a publichealth priority. Sally Maguet August 2019 We would like to acknowledge the reviewers of this report, who gave freely of their time to provide feedback and expert editorial advice (...) the findings from a series of 22 interviews with publichealth practitioners and collaborators with varying experience responding to such events. It includes a diversity of perspectives from four Canadian provinces, one territory, and two U.S. States. In regions such as British Columbia, the Northwest Territories, Alberta, Oregon, and California repeated wildfire smoke events have brought about collaborative planning and knowledge sharing opportunities that have begun to build trust among various

Briefing paper 54: the publichealth implications of rising debt BRIEFING PAPER 54 October 2018 www.gcph.co.uk • Unsecure personal debt, including; credit cards, overdrafts and short-term loans, is at its highest level in the UK since before the 2008 economic recession; with the level projected to rise higher still in the coming years. • The high level of unsecure personal debt is related to the economy, labour market conditions, government policy and the re-emergence of irresponsible lending (...) practice. • Approximately 4.5 million borrowers with personal unsecure debt suffer moderate to severe ‘financial d istress’, experiencing financial difficu lties or other issues such as mental health problems from the strain of repaying their debts • The evidence reviewed makes clear the risks to publichealth; those with this form of debt are significantly more likel y to experience mental d isorders compared with the wider population and there are also proven links to worsened physical health

Opportunities and challenges in public and community engagement: the connected for cognitive health in later life (CHILL) project Two goals of publichealth research are to understand what causes disease and ill health, and what can be done to prevent it. To develop appropriate and effective actions, we need to know what resources are available to communities, and what are the beliefs and values that influence behaviour. This means that research needs to be carried out close to the people (...) of the challenges in attempting to involve people in shaping research and intervention development, before offering some conclusions and suggested next steps for researchers.Background Identifying risk of disease and ill health, and developing prevention strategies, are key objectives in publichealth research. However, poor understanding of the impact of local context, including cultural and ethnic differences, challenges our ability to develop actions that are acceptable and meaningful to local communities
Guidelines for the public on how to provide mental health first aid: narrative review Expert-consensus guidelines have been developed for how members of the public should assist a person with a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis.This review aimed to examine the range of guidelines that have been developed and how these have been implemented in practice.A narrative review was carried out based on a systematic search for literature on the development or implementation (...) of the guidelines.The Delphi method has been used to develop a wide range of guidelines for English-speaking countries, Asian countries and a number of other cultural groups. The primary implementation has been through informing the content of training courses.Further work is needed on guidelines for low- and middle-income countries.A.F.J. is an unpaid member of the Board of Mental Health First Aid International (trading as Mental Health First Aid Australia), which is a not-for-profit organisation.
Knowledge translation for publichealth in low- and middle- income countries: a critical interpretive synthesis Effective knowledge translation allows the optimisation of access to and utilisation of research knowledge in order to inform and enhance publichealth policy and practice. In low- and middle- income countries, there are substantial complexities that affect the way in which research can be utilised for publichealth action. This review attempts to draw out concepts in the literature (...) that contribute to defining some of the complexities and contextual factors that influence knowledge translation for publichealth in low- and middle- income countries.A Critical Interpretive Synthesis was undertaken, a method of analysis which allows a critical review of a wide range of heterogeneous evidence, through incorporating systematic review methods with qualitative enquiry techniques.
