RESUMO

The vast amount of data generated by clinical studies of potential therapeutic options for COVID-19 presents important challenges. The new data must be interpreted quickly so that prescribers can make optimal treatment decisions with as little harm to patients as possible, and so that medicines manufacturers can scale up production rapidly and bolster their supply chains. Rapid interpretation of fresh data will save lives by ensuring that successful drugs can be administered to as many patients as possible as quickly as possible. This publication, the 27th edition of the database of evidence on potential therapeutic options for COVID-19, examines 147 therapeutic options. This information will help investigators, policymakers, and prescribers navigate the flood of relevant data to ensure that management of COVID-19, at both individual and population levels, is based on the best available knowledge. This resource will be continually updated as more research is released into the public space.

RESUMO

The acquisition of antimicrobials without a prescription is a global concern. This practice is thriving in countries that lack adequate legislation or where regulations are not properly enforced. The Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) and its member states in the Region of the Americas approved the Global Action Plan on Antimicrobial Resistance, which recognizes antimicrobial resistance as a threat to global public health that requires a multisectoral response. To tackle antimicrobial resistance, a worldwide change in behavior is needed in terms of how these drugs are used and acquired. National approaches are required to address the indiscriminate use and over-prescription of antimicrobials, and to enforce regulations on prescription and acquisition practices. The objective of this communication handbook is to help communication professionals and health program officials develop strategies to raise awareness and promote the importance of the appropriate use of antimicrobials among different stakeholders; raise public awareness about the importance of obtaining antimicrobials with a prescription in order to achieve multisectoral collaboration to ensure compliance with laws and regulations on this issue; and promote a change in behavior regarding the appropriate use and acquisition of antimicrobials by everyone involved. The target audiences for this handbook are the general population (including adolescents, children, and child caregivers/parents of children), healthcare professionals (including pharmacists and pharmacy staff), and various stakeholders (government officials, professional societies, medical organizations, the private sector, local leaders, and health-influencers, among others).

RESUMO

La adquisición de antimicrobianos sin prescripción es una preocupación a nivel mundial. Esta práctica está prosperando en países que carecen de la legislación adecuada o en los que no se aplican las reglamentaciones correctamente. La Organización Panamericana de la Salud (OPS) y los Estados Miembros de la Región de las Américas aprobaron el Plan de acción sobre resistencia a los antimicrobianos, que reconoce la resistencia a los antimicrobianos como una amenaza para la salud pública mundial que requiere una respuesta multisectorial. Para combatir la resistencia a los antimicrobianos, es necesario un cambio de comportamiento a nivel mundial sobre la forma en que se utilizan y se adquieren. Para abordar el uso indiscriminado de antimicrobianos y su prescripción excesiva, y aplicar la reglamentación sobre prescripción y prácticas de adquisición, se requieren enfoques nacionales. En este contexto, el objetivo del presente manual de comunicación es apoyar a los profesionales de la comunicación y oficiales a cargo de programas de salud a elaborar estrategias para concientizar y promover la importancia del uso adecuado de antimicrobianos entre las diferentes partes interesadas; concientizar al público sobre la importancia de la adquisición de antimicrobianos con prescripción para lograr la colaboración multisectorial para el cumplimiento de las disposiciones legales y las reglamentaciones sobre este tema, y promover un cambio de comportamiento sobre el uso y la adquisición adecuados de antimicrobianos de todas las partes involucradas.

RESUMO

This publication presents a comprehensive methodology to support the Member States of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) in preparing for and responding to heat-health risks in the Region of the Americas. It builds on World Health Organization and the World Meteorological Organization global documents, as well as on the disaster preparedness methodologies employed throughout the countries of the Region. This publication is part of an effort coordinated by PAHO to support Member States in multihazard preparedness, and includes: early warning system strengthening; threat characterization; activation and deactivation procedure definition; and institutional coordination. It engages different disciplines and recognizes the importance of intersectoral collaboration to respond to heat-health risks. It aims to bring awareness of the impacts of heat on the health of people of the Americas to public health decisionmakers, and thereby strengthen health service provision.

RESUMO

Tuberculosis continues to represent a severe public health problem in the Region of the Americas, even more so in the case of indigenous peoples, whose TB incidence is much higher than that of the general population. To achieve tuberculosis control in these communities, it is necessary to respond to communities’ diverse needs from an intercultural perspective that allows the application of a holistic approach—from a standpoint of equality and mutual respect—and considers the value of their cultural practices. In the Region of the Americas, although there has been progress toward recognizing the need for an intercultural approach to health services, obstacles rooted in discrimination, racism, and the exclusion of indigenous peoples and other ethnic groups persist. To respond to this situation, the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) prepared this guidance which––based on an intercultural approach in accordance with the priority lines of the current PAHO Policy on Ethnicity and Health and its practical development in the Region’s indigenous populations––represent a support tool for implementing the End TB Strategy. This publication integrates PAHO’s accumulated experience and best practices developed by its Member States in recent years, including discussions and experiences shared in regional meetings on the issue, and emphasizes innovation and social inclusion. This requires an urgent shift away from traditional paradigms, taking specific actions that gradually reduce TB incidence and moving toward effective multisectoral actions that have proven effective in quickly containing the epidemic.
