Each year, over 30,000 people die from lung cancer, particularly those who’re aged 65 or over. Only 6% of lung cancer patients can survive up to 5 years or more after diagnosis. Approximately two-thirds of males are diagnosed with the increased rates of lung cancer. Smoking is the greatest risk factor for lung cancer as it accounts for approximately 94% of the cases. Prostate cancer Worldwide, prostate cancer is the second most common cancer and the sixth most common cause of cancer death in males, after lung cancer.
Determinants of Pneumonia in children Indonesia study case Introduction Pneumonia commonly is caused by bacteria such as Streptococcus pneumoniae ,Haemophilus influenzae, Staphylococcus aureus, and some strains of respiratory virus like influenza, parainfluenza, and adenovirus (NCID, 2005). This disease in children is characterized by cough with difficult or rapid breathing and chest indrawing. (Wardlaw et al, 2006) Pneumonia contributes greatly for children death below 5 year in the world. Figure 1 describes that more than 10 million children in the world die before they reach their fifth birthday. Approximately 2.6 millions children younger than 5 years die annually from Pneumonia, most of them in the low income country.
Comprehensive knowledge of HIV transmission remains low among young people, along with condom use. About 210,000 children died of AIDS-related causes in 2012, compared to 320,000 in 2005. Target 8 Between 2000 and 2012, the substantial expansion of malaria interventions led to a 42 per cent decline in malaria mortality rates globally. In the decade since 2000, 3.3 million deaths from malaria were averted, and the lives of three million young children were saved. Thanks to increased funding, more children are sleeping under insecticide-treated bed nets in sub-Saharan Africa.
Among those paralyzed, 5% to 10% die when their breathing muscles become immobilized. Polio cases have decreased by over 99% since 1988, from an estimated 350 000 cases then, to 359 reported cases in 2014. The reduction is the result of the global effort to eradicate the disease. Today, Afghanistan and Pakistan remain polio-endemic, down from more than 125 in 1988. As long as a single child remains infected, children in all countries are at risk of contracting polio.
Almost 2 million Americans per year develop hospital acquired infections, resulting in 99,000 deaths. Most of these infections are due to antibacterial-resistant pathogens because as mentioned earlier this is the ideal environment for these resistant bacteria to thrive. Two common hospital acquired infections alone (sepsis and pneumonia) killed nearly 50,000 Americans and cost the U.S. health care system more than $8 billion in just 2006
Children with Cancer Introduction All over the world children have cancer and many don’t know they have cancer yet. Everyone experience cancer differently but many aren’t able to get the help that they need because they can’t afford it. Many parents or guardian will take multiple jobs to be able to pay for a treatment or surgery that their child need. It not always easy for a child to go through cancer because it take away their childhood of being able to be a kid. People try to research solution or option of their child but people want the best doctor for their child.
Malaria is a very common disease affecting people all around the world. It has been a life threatening problem since 2700 BC. There are over 100 countries at risk for Malaria transmission, nearly half the world’s population, 3.3 billion. It is especially life threatening in Africa, where 20% of childhood deaths are due to malaria. Additionally, out of the 250 million cases each year, there are around one million deaths.
I. Introduction Diarrhoeal disease is second in reasons on why children from the age of 5 and below die. This disease is responsible for the 760,000 children that die every year. Diarrhoea can last for several days and can also leave your body without the water and salts that are necessary for survival. Most people who die from diarrhoea actually die from severe dehydration.
As noted the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (2014), “Twenty percent of children ages 8 to 12 and 45 percent of those ages 13 to 14 will have arm pain during a single youth baseball season”. It can be seen from those statistics that, children have the most injuries because of their age and experience. So far, in Viet Nam, there are thousands of sport injury cases each year, with most of its cases happened to young teenager, whose body have not completely developed. Moreover, the figure is rising consistently. Sport injuries are considered to be
Cardiovascular diseases are the worldwide health care issue representing 30% of mortalities. Heart valve diseases are life threatening affecting ~2.5% of the general population in economically developed countries (V.T. Nkomo et al. 2006). Approximately 100,000 heart valve replacements are performed each year in the U.S.
