  • A health risk assessment of ultraviolet radiation in Durban
  • Health ; KwaZulu-Natal ; Radiation ; Risk ; South Africa
  • The widely observed depletion of statospheric ozone and the expected increase in surface ultraviolet radiation receipt has raised much concern about consequent health risks, particularly in the form of erythema (sunburn) and non-melanoma skin cancer
  • . This paper presents the findings of a health risk assessment of surface ultraviolet radiation in Durban. - (AJC)
  • Application of health risk assessment models to South African conditions
  • Atmospheric pollution ; Health ; Model ; Risk ; South Africa
  • South Africa is characterised by a mix of air pollution problems associated with urban-industrial activities and the domestic use of biofuels, both of which have negative human health risks. Based on empirical data it is shown that it is of critical
  • importance to have locally derived exposure values rather than default values. This can shift an outcome from one of no risk to one of severe health risk. It is concluded that the United States health risk framework provides a rapid and simple method
  • of assessing health risk, provided cognisance is taken of certain local input parameters, in particular exposure values. - (AJC)
  • Women's status, environmental changes and child health in the riverine area of Ondo State, Nigeria

  • The paper uses the concept of vulnerability as a departure point from which to map the health risk to children in Igbekun area, an oil-rich coastal area of Nigeria. The paper attempts to highlight the poor quality of life and health of children
  • and how it is becoming much more difficult to practice health intervention programmes. The environmental crisis has deprived women of their traditional means of livelihood.

  • Perspectives on health and development
  • Epidemic;Disease outbreak ; Health ; Induced effect ; International migration ; Medical service ; Morbidity ; United Kingdom
  • The great cultural diversity of the immigrant population presents an important challenge in delivering health care to the populations at risk of these diseases. The spatial concentration of these populations is one of the greatest advantages

  • Ticks and tick-borne diseases (TBD) represent a serious health risk in numerous European countries, including Czechia. The South Bohemian Region is a TBD high-risk area. The aims of the current project are: to map the distribution of ticks and tick
  • -borne diseases in the South Bohemian Region, to identify the key factors determining their distribution and to use the obtained data for creation of a TBD risk prediction model. - (EN)
  • AIDS ; Diffusion ; Epidemic ; Health ; Research
  • This review aims to demonstrate how the geographer's contribution to HIV/AIDS control might be broadened. The AA. evaluate the various interventions against HIV using some of the other constructions of infection risk that have emerged from studies
  • of the diffusion of HIV and AIDS. They describe the main interventions and examine the debates about their appropriateness as elements of a socially mediated health policy. Some demographic features of the transmission are considered and the implications
  • for preventive action of temporal variations in the risk of infection.
  • The ecology of risk and the geography of intervention: from research to practice for the health and well-being of urban children
  • Health risks to the population of Gezira/Sudan following irrigation of cotton fields in Highlights of applied geography.

  • Geographical research on disease ecology in the 1980s has examined the role of environmental characteristics in the distribution of particular diseases and the contribution of ecological and socioeconomic variables to differential risk of infection
  • . Research was also published on spatial patterns of health and disease and the provision of health services.―(DWG)

  • Climate change enhances the vulnerability of Ireland to extreme weather events in terms of potential adverse health impacts. To examine this, the mortality impacts of heatwaves between 1981 and 2006 were analysed, with particular reference
  • in rural areas. Only 14 excess deaths were reported in 2006 and none in 2003. Overall, 294 excess deaths were attributed to heatwaves. Heat is a moderate but real risk in Ireland. In the future, with climate change and the ageing of the population, it may
