RESUMO

Suriname was responsible for the highest concentration of Plasmodium falciparum malaria in the Americas prior to 2006. Since 2006 the country experienced a significant decrease in malaria incidence, reaching near elimination levels by 2009. The country is currently listed by the World Health Organization (WHO) among the countries with the potential to eliminate malaria by 2020. The 2017 Annual Report of the Ministry of Health Malaria Program of Suriname outlines the ongoing, nationally adopted strategies aimed at achieving the elimination of Malaria by the target date, especially in light of diminishing funding from international aid organizations

RESUMO

The information provided in this document by the Suriname Bureau of Public Health (BOG), is intended for the management and staff of hospitals and care homes with regard to the prevention and control of mosquito breeding sites. It focuses on the mosquitoes, and more specifically, the Aedes mosquito, which is a carrier of serious diseases such as Dengue, Chikungunya and Zika viruses. Symptoms of these viruses include fever, headaches, joint and muscle aches, and skin rashes. The core intent of the information is to prevent the spread of diseases carried by this insect vector via elimination of breeding grounds and the environment in which they thrive, such as small water objects like cups, cans, trays, vases, flower pot coasters, car tires and water barrels to name a few. Systematic, sustained implementation of an anti-mosquito program is crucial to the successful control of Dengue, Chikungunya and Zika viruses, particularly for hospitals and care homes. The key rationale is to raise awareness of the danger of transmission, and encourage widespread participation towards control and eventual elimination of the breeding grounds. A comprehensive list of strategies to eliminate breeding grounds is included in the publication...(AU)

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: To examine the magnitude of mercury pollution of the aquatic environment in Suriname, to demonstrate that most mercury contamination originates from small-scale gold mining and to show the adverse health effects of mercury exposure in human population of the interior. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: In geographically dispersed locations across Suriname, bottom sediment and fish were analysed for mercury. To demonstrate the anthropogenic source of the mercury, core samples in flood plains were analysed to determine the pattern of mercury levels with depth. Mercury exposure was documented in five village communities through dietary surveys and hair analysis. RESULTS: Both bottom sediments and predatory fish were often above international norms in most areas of Suriname, including outside the mining area. All samples taken at marine mud flats were low in mercury. Core samples from coastal flood plains showed decreasing levels of mercury with depth. Mercury levels in the human population were elevated, but on average below the US Environmental Protection Agency Benchmark Dose. The highest levels occurred in a village upstream of any gold mining, isolated from access to other parts of the country. CONCLUSIONS: Most of Suriname is polluted with mercury, directly resulting from unsafe small-scale gold mining practices, or indirectly through water or wind deposition. The pattern of mercury in core samples demonstrates the anthropogenic source of the mercury. Villagers in the interior of Suriname show elevated levels of mercury, levels depending on the amount of local fish consumed and therefore on the degree of isolation of the village.

RESUMO

The Bureau Alcohol and Drugs (BAD) in Suriname was founded on 3 November 1986. Its aim was to provide aid to alcoholics and drug addicts, as well as to carry out preventive activities. The therapeutic and supporting methods are described and the preventive activities explained. The overall conclusion is that BAD cannot cope with its task on its own. Therefore, with help from other institutions, it should expand the assistance and preventive activities

RESUMO

Report on a Filariasis Conference held in April 1976. It deals with the parasite and the vector, as well as with the history and epidemiology of filariasis. Also deals with the symptoms, diagnosis and therapeutic treatment. Lymphography in filariasis and the problems concerning the surgical treatment of elephantiasis are also discussed. It appeared that not all cases of elephantiasis in Suriname are caused by filariasis. Elephantiasis appeared to be the result of the combined action of various factors. The therapeutic treatment consists mostly of prophylaxis, while surgery serves as the very last remedy
