Impact of Health Aid Investments on Public Opinion of the United States: Analysis of Global Attitude Surveys From 45 Countries, 2002-2016.

To assess whether increasing health aid investments affected public opinion of the United States in recipient populations. We linked health aid data from the United States to nationally representative opinion poll surveys from 45 countries conducted between 2002 and 2016. We exploited the abrupt and substantial increase in health aid when the US President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and President's Malaria Initiative (PMI) were launched to assess unique changes in opinions of the United State...

The CHAMPIONS NETWork summer program trains high school students to become health advocates in underserved Chicago, Illinois, communities. It provides a more innovative approach to traditional pipeline programs through the added responsibility of active health promotion. To determine whether student empowerment changed during the program, participants completed pre- and postassessments on health knowledge and self-efficacy. We found significant increases in student empowerment after the program compared wit...

"Nondetected": The Politics of Measurement of Asbestos in Talc, 1971-1976.

The recent lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson have raised the issue of what and when talcum powder manufacturers knew about the presence of asbestos in their products and what they did or did not do to protect the public. Low-level exposure to asbestos in talc is said to result in either mesothelioma or ovarian cancer. Johnson & Johnson has claimed that there was "no detectable asbestos" in their products and that any possible incidental presence was too small to act as a carcinogen. But what exactly does "...

Suspected Heroin Overdoses in US Emergency Departments, 2017-2018.

To describe changes in suspected heroin overdose emergency department (ED) visits. We analyzed quarterly and yearly changes in heroin overdoses during 2017-2018 by using data from 23 states and jurisdictions (including the District of Columbia) funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Enhanced State Opioid Overdose Surveillance program. The analyses included the Pearson χ test to detect significant changes. Both sexes, all age groups, and some states exhibited increases from quarter 1 (Q1...

Mortality in Spain in the Context of the Economic Crisis and Austerity Policies.

To analyze the mortality trend in Spain before, during, and after the economic crisis and austerity policies. We calculated age-standardized annual mortality rates in 2001 through 2016 and estimated linear trends in mortality rates during 4 periods (2001-2007, 2008-2010, 2011-2013, and 2014-2016) using the annual percentage change (APC). All-cause mortality rate decreased during the period 2001 to 2016, although we found increases over the previous year. After adjusting for increased influenza activity (...

QuantiFERON-TB Gold Versus Tuberculin Screening and Care Retention Among Persons Experiencing Homelessness: Georgia, 2015-2017.

To characterize the cascade of care for latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI) in persons experiencing homelessness (PEH) and evaluate the effect of screening by QuantiFERON-TB Gold (QFT) versus tuberculin skin test (TST). We performed a retrospective cohort study of all PEH screened for LTBI by QFT and TST from May 2015 to April 2017 in Fulton County, Georgia. There were 3504 PEH screened by QFT and 5509 by TST, with 2925 TSTs administered on site at community shelters and 2584 at the health department. Mo...

To explore the effect of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) on disparities in access to health care based on disability status, as well as age, income, race, and ethnicity. In this study, I used logistic regression to analyze nationally representative data from 128 000 respondents to the US National Health Interview Survey from 2008 to 2010 and 2015 to 2017. Outcome variables were uninsurance over the previous 12 months, delayed or forgone health care for reasons of cost, and having a regular provider at a do...

Financial Conflicts of Interest and Stance on Tobacco Harm Reduction: A Systematic Review.

Tobacco companies have actively promoted the substitution of cigarettes with purportedly safer tobacco products (e.g., smokeless tobacco, e-cigarettes) as tobacco harm reduction (THR). Given the tobacco, e-cigarette, and pharmaceutical industries' substantial financial interests, we quantified industry influence on support for THR. To analyze a comprehensive set of articles published in peer-reviewed journals assessing funding sources and support for or opposition to substitution of tobacco or nicotine pro...

The E-Cigarette Debate: What Counts as Evidence?

Two major public health evaluations of e-cigarettes-one from the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM), the other from Public Health England (PHE)-were issued back to back in the winter of 2018. While some have read these analyses as broadly consistent, providing support for the view that e-cigarettes could play a role in smoking harm reduction, in every major respect, they come to very different conclusions about what the evidence suggests in terms of public health policy. How is...

From 2016 to 2017, we conducted a randomized controlled trial at 2 public hospitals in western Kenya. We assigned eligible pregnant women to receive 2-way SMS with a nurse or no SMS, with the option to include male partners.
