ABSTRACT

The Intergovernmental Commission of the Amazon Countries Initiative for the Surveillance and Control of Chagas Disease (AMCHA) held its 11th Annual Meeting and First Virtual Meeting on 27-28 May 2021. This meeting report lists the recommendations, conclusions and resolutions agreed. Representatives from Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Peru, Siriname and Venezuela and other partners on Chagas participated in the meeting and presented the epidemiological situation of Chagas disease in their countries. Due to the particular Amazonian situation of vectorial transmission based mostly on the wild cycle of Trypanosoma cruzi with diversity of triatomine vectors involved in effective transmission, and the variety of eco-epidemiological situations that facilitate such transmission, the countries of the Amazon agreed that the development and strengthening of preventive actions based on comprehensive surveillance and detection of effective vectorial transmission, based on mandatory notification of acute or chronic cases, was required. In addition, it was recommended that surveillance and prevention and/or vector control actions should be implemented through local governments (minimum administrative and territorial units of each country), which Colombia adopted as an approach strategy, as a tool that can be useful in complex situations of different types and entities; implementation of all necessary capacities to diagnose Chagas disease, in all clinical symptoms that are compatible with it, especially febrile syndromes without diagnostic confirmation of malaria and dengue (in urban environments); and use the detection of acute cases of Chagas disease, and even of chronic cases when possible, as an indicator for a concomitant epidemiological investigation, and eventual adoption of measures for prevention, control and clinical care of the cases in the situation studied.

ABSTRACT

[Introducción] “Andar la salud” es un boletín elaborado en la Oficina de la Organización Panamericana de la Salud/Organización Mundial de la Salud (OPS/OMS) en Cuba. Su propósito fundamental es compartir lo más relevante de la cooperación técnica de esta Representación con el Ministerio de Salud Pública (MINSAP) y otras instituciones y organismos en el país. Desde que comenzó la pandemia provocada por el SARS-CoV-2 en la isla, esta publicación se ha dedicado, fundamentalmente, a compilar y dar a conocer aspectos destacados de la respuesta en el territorio nacional. Sin embargo, en el presente número, la mayoría de los artículos recoge un balance de los resultados de la colaboración en las diferentes áreas técnicas entre 2020 y 2021. De tal forma, aunque se hace referencia a lo relacionado con el enfrentamiento a la COVID-19, también se reflejan esfuerzos encaminados a otros programas y prioridades dentro del sector sanitario. De igual forma, es posible leer una entrevista con la investigadora Marta Ayala Ávila, así como trabajo dedicados a la labor de médicos rurales cubanos y de la Unidad Nacional de Promoción de Salud y Prevención de Enfermedades (PROSALUD).

ABSTRACT

A idade é uma das primeiras características que observamos em outras pessoas. O idadismo surge quando a idade é usada para categorizar e dividir as pessoas por atributos que causam danos, desvantagens ou injustiças, e minam a solidariedade intergeracional. O idadismo prejudica a nossa saúde e o bem-estar e constitui um grande obstáculo à formulação de políticas e ações eficazes em envelhecimento saudável, como foi reconhecido pelos Estados-Membros da Organização Mundial da Saúde (OMS) na Estratégia Global e No Plano de Ação sobre Envelhecimento e Saúde, e na Década do Envelhecimento Saudável (2021-2030). Em resposta, a OMS foi convidada a lançar com seus parceiros uma campanha global de combate ao idadismo, que inclui este relatório. Este relatório, elaborado pela OMS, pelo Alto Comissariado das Nações Unidas para os Direitos Humanos, pelo Departamento de Assuntos Econômicos e Sociais das Nações Unidas e pelo Fundo de População das Nações Unidas, destina-se a formuladores de políticas, profissionais, pesquisadores, agências de desenvolvimento e membros do setor privado e da sociedade civil. Após definir a natureza do idadismo, resumimos as melhores evidências sobre a escala, os efeitos e os determinantes do idadismo, e as estratégias mais eficazes para reduzi-lo. O relatório conclui com três recomendações para a ação baseadas em evidências para criar um mundo para todas as idades.

ABSTRACT

La edad es una de las primeras características que observamos en otras personas. El edadismo surge cuando la edad se utiliza para categorizar y dividir a las personas por atributos que ocasionan daño, desventaja o injusticia, y menoscaban la solidaridad intergeneracional. El edadismo perjudica nuestra salud y bienestar y constituye un obstáculo importante para la formulación de políticas eficaces y la adopción de medidas relativas al envejecimiento saludable, tal como reconocieron los Estados Miembros de la Organización Mundial de la Salud (OMS) en la Estrategia y plan de acción mundiales sobre el envejecimiento y la salud, y en el Decenio del Envejecimiento Saludable (2021-2030). En respuesta a ello, se pidió a la OMS que pusiera en marcha con sus asociados una campaña mundial de lucha contra el edadismo, en la que se inscribe este informe. Este informe, elaborado por la OMS, la Oficina del Alto Comisionado de las Naciones Unidas para los Derechos Humanos, el Departamento de Asuntos Económicos y Sociales de las Naciones Unidas y el Fondo de Población de las Naciones Unidas, está dirigido a los encargados de formular políticas, profesionales, investigadores, organismos de desarrollo y miembros del sector privado y la sociedad civil. Después de definir la naturaleza del edadismo, se resumen las mejores pruebas sobre la escala, los efectos y los determinantes del edadismo, y las estrategias más eficaces para reducirlo. Concluye con tres recomendaciones de actuación basadas en pruebas científicas para crear un mundo para todas las edades.

ABSTRACT

A cooperação científica internacional tornou-se um fator essencial para que os países emergentes alcancem novos patamares de pesquisa, publicações e financiamento. No contexto de uma discussão analítica sobre a cooperação científica global, foram analisadas as publicações brasileiras indexadas na Web of Science e a coautoria entre pesquisadores locais e estrangeiros, com o objetivo de ilustrar as mudanças ocorridas na medicina regenerativa nas duas últimas décadas. O artigo conclui que, na última década, expandiu-se a coautoria entre autores brasileiros e destes com autores de países desenvolvidos, especialmente com aqueles dos Estados Unidos, mas também, em menor grau, com os de outros países emergentes e da América Latina. Pesquisadores brasileiros também publicaram artigos de impacto global, indicando a qualidade atingida, no país, pela pesquisa científica na área. A análise mostra que a colaboração abriu portas, no âmbito global, para a pesquisa local, mas também que as assimetrias científicas se mantiveram ao longo do tempo.


International scientific cooperation has become a key factor for emerging countries to improve research advancement, publication and funding. An analysis of local publications indexed in the Web of Science and co-authored between Brazilian researchers and non-residents was carried out, in the context of an analytical discussion on global scientific cooperation and with the aim of illustrating changes in the last two decades in regenerative medicine regarding this topic. The article concluded that in the last decade Brazil increased scientific co-authorships significantly domestically and with advanced country authors, especially with American authors, but also to a lesser degree with those of other emerging economies in and beyond Latin American. Local researchers have also published on their own several articles of global impact, revealing the academic quality attained in local sciences related to the area. Collaboration has undoubtedly opened doors for Brazilian regenerative medicine globally, but historical scientific inequalities remain.


La cooperación científica internacional se ha transformado en un factor sustancial para que los países emergentes progresen en investigación, publicación y financiación. Se desarrolló un análisis de publicaciones locales indexadas en la Web of Science y coautorías entre investigadores brasileños y extranjeros en el contexto de una reflexión sobre cooperación científica global y con el fin de ilustrar las modificaciones producidas en la medicina molecular regenerativa durante los dos últimos decenios. El artículo concluye que, en el último decenio, Brasil aumentó significativamente las coautorías domésticas y con autores de países avanzados, especialmente de los Estados Unidos, y en menor medida con aquellos de otras economías emergentes dentro y fuera de América Latina. Los investigadores locales han publicado varios artículos propios de impacto global, lo cual revela la calidad académica lograda, en Brasil, en el área. La colaboración ha abierto puertas en el mundo para la medicina regenerativa brasileña, pero las asimetrías científicas históricas persisten.

ABSTRACT

The Director’s 2021 annual report on the work of the Pan American Sanitary Bureau (the Bureau), Regional Office for the Americas of the World Health Organization, highlights the technical cooperation undertaken by the Bureau during the period from July 2020 to June 2021, within the framework of the 2020–2025 Strategic Plan of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO). The theme of the report is: Working through the COVID-19 Pandemic. The period covered has been the most challenging ever encountered by PAHO. The pandemic, through its devastating health and economic consequences, has severely impacted people’s lives and livelihoods and disrupted countries, societies, economies, and their development. This has occurred in conjunction with the inevitable challenges on the road to equitable, sustainable development and the achievement of the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals and the objectives of the Sustainable Health Agenda for the Americas 2018–2030. The publication opens with a preface by the Director of PASB, a concise executive summary, and a brief introduction. It then presents a comprehensive review of PAHO’s technical cooperation, and of the Bureau’s institutional and strengthening functions. The report highlights achievements, challenges, and lessons learned as the Bureau undertook technical cooperation with PAHO Member States at national, subregional, and regional levels within the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, working with traditional and new partners to find equitable solutions for emerging and persisting health issues in the Region of the Americas. It also looks ahead, analyzing those opportunities brought to light by the COVID-19 experience for strengthening PAHO’s promotion of and contribution to equity and progressive realization of the right to health. Moreover, it indicates how the Bureau, with the concurrence and guidance of Member States, and in collaboration with partners, will take advantage of such opportunities. This report is complemented by the Financial Report of the Director, and the Report of the External Auditor for the year 2020.

ABSTRACT

The Region of the Americas has benefited from the support of collaborating centres (CCs) of the World Health Organization (WHO) since 1950. Since then, CCs have supported the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) in several technical areas, such as nursing, communicable diseases, health promotion, information systems for health, mental health, emergency response, and many others. PAHO has worked to ensure that CC work plans are aligned with the regional priorities and mandates agreed upon by its Member States. This alignment ensures high-quality support from CCs to improve the technical cooperation provided by PAHO to the Member States. In addition, it assures that this collaborative work is linked to the Organization’s response to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In April 2021, PAHO convened all 183 CCs located in the Region for a webinar with the overall goal of recognizing the importance of CCs in achieving the SDGs. It also aimed to showcase the importance of international cooperation during challenging times, as experienced with COVID-19. The webinar was a starting point for PAHO to reengage with CCs. It included the participation of Executive Management, department directors, PAHO/WHO Representatives, and key PAHO personnel. This report provides an overview of the panel discussions and key recommendations made by participants to improve the technical relationships between PAHO and CCs. Addressing the recommendations stemming from this webinar and the previous evaluations will prove to be an important building block toward advancing the CC mechanism and PAHO technical cooperation.

En este informe anual se presenta la cooperación técnica de la OPS en la subregión en el 2020, mediante la aplicación de la estrategia de cooperación subregional, la respuesta a las necesidades y prioridades subregionales, y el desarrollo de las actividades en el marco de los mandatos regionales y mundiales de la Organización y los ODS. En consonancia con el tema general de "la salud universal y la pandemia: sistemas de salud resilientes", se pone de relieve la respuesta de la OPS a la pandemia de COVID-19, así como sus esfuerzos continuos en esferas prioritarias como las enfermedades transmisibles, las enfermedades no transmisibles, la salud mental, la salud a lo largo del curso de vida y las emergencias de salud. También se presenta un resumen financiero del ejercicio examinado.
