- Blue Cross and Blue Shield is committed to extending health insurance to those who do not have coverage, and The Blues® believe the best way to accomplish this goal is to build on our employer-based system. In 2009, more than 95 percent of American firms with more than 50 employees offered health insurance coverage to their employees. However, less than half of companies with fewer than 10 employees offer health benefits. Increasing the percentage of small employers that offer health benefits is critical to increasing coverage levels. Additionally, there must be a focus on those most likely to lack coverage, such as young adults aged 18-34, Hispanics, and African-Americans.

- The first cases of what would later become known as AIDS were reported in the United States in June of 1981. Since then, 1.8 million people in the U.S. are estimated to have been infected with HIV, including over 650,000 who have already died and more than 1.1 million estimated to be living with the disease today. The response to the U.S. epidemic has yielded numerous successes, but challenges remain.

- The findings suggest that the U.S. public is not particularly worried about the gradual rise in the number of older Americans. Nearly nine-in-ten adults surveyed say that "having more elderly people in the population" is either a good thing for society (41%) or does not make much difference (47%). Just 10% see this trend as a bad thing.
- Long-term care study 2013Overall, the idea of getting older is something that 3 in 10 Americans 40 years or older would rather not think about at all. Another 32 percent are somewhat comfortable thinking about getting older and 35 percent report being very comfortable. Being older, more educated, and in better health are associated with greater levels of comfort thinking about aging. Sixty-two percent of those 40-54 years old are somewhat or very comfortable thinking about getting older; the percentage increases to 75 percent for those 65 or older. Nearly half of those 65 and older, 47 percent, report being very comfortable thinking about getting older.

- Print Material"The original targets for these Goals were a two-thirds reduction in the mortality of children under 5 and a three-quarters reduction in the maternal mortality ratio between 1990 and 2015. There is worldwide consensus that, in order to reach these targets, good-quality essential services must be integrated into strong health systems. The addition in 2007 of a new target in Goal 5--universal access to reproductive health by 2015--reinforces this consensus: all people should have access to essential maternal, newborn, child and reproductive health services provided in a continuum of care. In order to reduce maternal mortality, Emergency Obstetric Care (EmOC) must be available and accessible to all women. While all aspects of reproductive health care including family planning and delivery with the help of a skilled health professional also plays an important role in reducing maternal and neonatal mortality, this handbook focuses on the critical role of EmOC in saving the lives of women with obstetric complications during pregnancy and childbirth and saving the lives of newborns intrapartum. The handbook describes indicators that can be used to assess, monitor and evaluate the availability, use and quality of EmOC." - p. viThis handbook describes indicators that can be used to assess, monitor and evaluate the availability, use and quality of Emergency Obstetric Care. These emergency obstetric care indicators can be used to measure progress in a programmatic continuum: from the availability of and access to emergency obstetric care to the use and quality of those services.

- PEPFAR, first authorized in 2003, has supported significant advances in HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment, and care in over 30 countries, including directly supporting treatment for about 5.1 million people; however, millions more people still need treatment. PEPFAR has allocated more than half of its funding to care and treatment and has spent over $1.2 billion to purchase ARV drugs. In addition to supplying ARV drugs directly in some countries, PEPFAR also helps partner countries manage their drug supply chains. GAO was asked to review PEPFAR supported ARV drug supply chains. GAO examined (1) actions PEPFAR has taken regarding ARV drug supply chains and (2) partner-country ARV drug supply chain operations. GAO reviewed PEPFAR and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) guidance and supply chain studies; analyzed 16 supply chain evaluations conducted in seven countries and published in 2011 and 2012; interviewed officials from OGAC, USAID, and other agencies; and conducted fieldwork in three countries selected on the basis of program size and other factors.

- Preventing suicide, a global imperative 2014, WHO"Suicides are preventable. Even so, every 40 seconds a person dies by suicide somewhere in the world and many more attempt suicide. Suicides occur in all regions of the world and throughout the lifespan. Notably, among young people 15-29 years of age, suicide is the second leading cause of death globally. Suicide impacts on the most vulnerable of the world's populations and is highly prevalent in already marginalized and discriminated groups of society. It is not just a serious public health problem in developed countries; in fact, most suicides occur in low- and middle-income countries where resources and services, if they do exist, are often scarce and limited for early identification, treatment and support of people in need. These striking facts and the lack of implemented timely interventions make suicide a global public health problem that needs to be tackled imperatively. This report is the first WHO publication of its kind and brings together what is known in a convenient form so that immediate actions can be taken. The report aims to increase the awareness of the public health significance of suicide and suicide attempts and to make suicide prevention a higher priority on the global public health agenda. It aims to encourage and support countries to develop or strengthen comprehensive suicide prevention strategies in a multisectoral public health approach. For a national suicide prevention strategy, it is essential that governments assume their role of leadership, as they can bring together a multitude of stakeholders who may not otherwise collaborate. Governments are also in a unique position to develop and strengthen surveillance and to provide and disseminate data that are necessary to inform action. This report proposes practical guidance on strategic actions that governments can take on the basis of their resources and existing suicide prevention activities. In particular, there are evidence-based and low-cost interventions that are effective, even in resource-poor settings. This publication would not have been possible without the significant contributions of experts and partners from all over the world. We would like to thank them for their important work and support. The report is intended to be a resource that will allow policy-makers and other stakeholders to make suicide prevention an imperative. Only then can countries develop a timely and effective national response and, thus, lift the burden of suffering caused by suicide and suicide attempts from individuals, families, communities and society as a whole."--Preface, page 03.

- The WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme for Water Supply and Sanitation (JMP) reports every two years on progress towards the drinking-water and sanitation target under Millennium Development Goal 7. This target calls for halving the proportion of the population without sustainable access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation between 1990 and 2015. Estimates presented in its 2012 update report describe the situation at the end 2010 and supersede those of the JMP update published in March 2010. The report brings welcome news: measured by the proxy-indicator consistently used by the JMP since 2000, the MDG drinking-water target was met in 2010, five years ahead of schedule. However, the job is far from done. An estimated 780 million still lacked safe drinking water in 2010, and the world is unlikely to meet the MDG sanitation target. A reduction in urban-rural disparities and inequities associated with poverty; drinking-water coverage in countries in sub-Saharan Africa and Oceania; putting sanitation 'on track'; and universal coverage beyond 2015 all remain high on the development and public health agenda.--Publisher description.
- "Even though progress towards the MDG target represents important gains in access for billions of people around the world, it has been uneven. Sharp geographic, sociocultural and economic inequalities in access persist and sometimes have increased. This report presents examples of unequal progress among marginalized and vulnerable groups. Section 1 presents the status of and trends in access to improved drinking water sources and sanitation. Section 2 provides a snapshot of inequalities in access to improved drinking water sources and sanitation. Section 3 presents efforts to strengthen monitoring of access to safe drinking water and sanitation services under a post-2015 development agenda, as well as the challenges associated with these efforts."--Publisher's website.
