Maternal Health 2016 - The Lancet

 

 

 

Извор: WUNRN – 12.10.2016

Executive Summary

September 16, 2016 - Each year, about 210 million women become pregnant and about 140 million newborn babies are delivered. The sheer scale of maternal health issues makes maternal well-being and survival vital concerns. A decade after The Lancet published a Series on maternal survival, a new Series of six papers brings our knowledge of maternal health, its epidemiology, successes, and current failings together, and at a crucial time within the sustainable development framework to 2030. The Series concludes with a call to action setting out five key targets which need to be met to ensure the progression of broader sustainable development goals (SDGs).

WHO

Antibiotic resistance presents one of the biggest threats to global health and development today – and the threat is growing. This year, the world will mark the second annual World Antibiotic Awareness Week (WAAW), with the overarching theme “Handle with Care”, from 14 to 20 November. The week aims to increase awareness of global antibiotic resistance and to encourage best practices among the general public, health care workers and policy-makers to avoid its further emergence and spread.

Antibiotic resistance is accelerated by the misuse and overuse of antibiotics, as well as poor infection prevention and control. Steps can be taken at all levels of society to reduce the impact and limit the spread of resistance. This year, WAAW focuses in particular on health workers and the vital role they play in defending the power of antibiotics.
