Oral health surveys : basic methods/ World Health Organization.

D 617.65 W92 o

Basic oral health surveys provide a sound basis for assessing the current oral health status of a population and its future needs for oral health care. The World Health Organization (WHO) has a long tradition of epidemiological survey methodology, which includes a description of the diagnostic criteria that can be readily understood and applied in public health programmes worldwide.

The WHO manual Oral Health Surveys – Basic Methods has encouraged countries to conduct standardized oral health surveys that are comparable internationally. The WHO Global Oral Health Data Bank collates the data gathered through country surveys on the burden of oral disease and WHO recommended statistical analysis on key indicator age groups of children and adults.

This manual aims to encourage national oral health survey planners to standardize measurements of oral diseases and conditions that are important for planning and evaluation of oral health programmes, as well as to ensure the comparability of data collected in a wide range of environments. It does this by applying the WHO global approach to chronic disease surveillance to an operational model for integration of oral health into chronic disease surveillance systems.

Title:The role of TRAF-interacting protein (TRAIP) during craniofacial development

Abstract: The control of cell proliferation is crucial for the craniofacial development. But the mechanism of how the cell proliferation is coordinated during the development remains to be elucidated. The TRAF-interacting protein (TRAIP) is an E3 ubiquitin ligase, which plays a role in cell proliferation and differentiation. It has also found been to interact with the cell cycle related protein PCNA. In this study the expression pattern of TRAIP during different stages of craniofacial development will be investigated and its potential relationship with cell proliferation will be evaluated. Its potential upstream and downstream signals will also be explored.

New publications are available at the Scout Report!

WHO: Global Health Observatory: Mental Health

While more than 800,000 people die from suicide globally each year, the median amount of the health budget allocated to mental health in 2011 was 2.8%. In Afghanistan, six out of every 100,000 men committed suicide. In the United States, that number was 19. These and other data can be gleaned from the age-standardized suicide rates interactive graph on the World Health Organization’s Global Health Observatory website dedicated to issues of Mental Health. Additionally, the page provides links to reports on Policy and financing of mental health, Human resources (in terms of the number of psychiatrists available per 100,000 people in a given country), and Mental health care delivery.
