The impact of universal coverage schemes in the developing world: a review of the existing evidence. Key points ■ Chapter 1 considered ways of measuring the gap between the present coverage and universal coverage of health services. The question of how to fill that gap is a target for research in every country. Research for universal health coverage, underpinned by research for health, is the body of methods and results used to find new ways of providing the health care needed by everyone. They come from both within the health sector and beyond it and will flourish wherever they are permitted and encouraged to do so. The growth is uneven, but most countries now have the foundations on which to build effective research programmes. One example is new thinking to break the mould of traditional research and development (R&D), where more products are being created through partnerships between universities, governments, international organizations and the private sector. All nations therefore need to be producers of research as well as consumers of it. All nations will benefit from taking a systematic approach to the monitoring and evaluation of research investments, practices, outputs and applications. Te discussion led to research questions of two kinds. Te frst kind is about improving health: What kinds of health systems and services are needed and for whom? How can the necessary health services be provided, and at what cost? How should health services adapt to the expected shifs in disease burden in the coming years? Te second kind of question is about measurement: What is the best way to measure the coverage of services and fnancial risk protection in any setting? How will we know when we have reached universal coverage? In the context of this report, scientifc research provides the set of tools used to stimulate and harness creative solutions to these questions – i. Tis chapter gives an overview of the changing landscape of research. Te frst observation is that creativity, imagination and innovation – which are fun- damental in any culture of enquiry – are universal. A premise of this report is that new ideas will fourish wherever they are encouraged and permitted to do so.

Recent studies lozol 2.5 mg without a prescription, however generic lozol 2.5mg, indicate the risk for hospitalization for NA is related to mothers level of education (higher risk is associated with higher maternal education; Ahren et al, 2011). Perhaps such mothers are more demanding of their daughters. Maintaining factors Mentioned under etiology, the relief of anxiety by dieting and dysphoric mood caused by eating, may also serve as a maintaining factor. Starvation is another maintaining factor, inducing complex physiological and psychological reactions involving central and peripheral mechanisms. Such mechanism may have had evolutionary value, allowing animals to survive periods of food shortage, but in the current setting they serve only to perpetuate a vicious cycle of weight loss. Neuropsychological testing Neuropsychological testing reveals cognitive deficits (Weider et al, 2013) which are related to severity of the disorder, and may play a role in cause and outcome (Zakzanis et al, 2009). Executive control is impaired with problems in set-shifting, attention and decision-making (Treasure & Russell, 2011). A link has been demonstrated between amenorrhoea, brain structure and deficits in cognition, including recall, verbal fluency, working memory, visual reproduction, reading, maths and oral language (Chui et al, 2008). Neuroimaging Neuroimaging studies demonstrate structural and functional abnormalities. There is global reduction of grey (GM) and white matter (WM) during the acute stage. GM is reduced by 5-20%, and WM is reduced to a lesser extent. GM loss is found in the anterior cingulate, hippocampi and the temporal, parietal and prefrontal regions. With recovery GM is restored, but most studies find small residual deficits remain. In one study, there was 60% restoration after 15 weeks of successful treatment. A recent diffusion tensor imaging study (DTI; Kazlouski et al, 2011) revealed WM abnormalities in the fornix, fronto-occipital fasciculus and the posterior cingulum. Magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS), which gives information on nerve cell damage by assessing brain metabolites, indicates altered cell membrane turnover which is reversible with recovery. Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) using visual stimuli of food or body image has been reviewed (Garcia-Garcia et al, 2013). Differences between those with eating disorders and healthy controls located differences in two circuits, 1) limbic and paralimbic areas (associated with reward), and 2) prefrontal regions associated with cognitive functions and control. The insula may be of particular importance (Kaye et al, 2009), as it integrates interoceptive information – confirmation is awaited. The hippocampal volume of women with AN who are food restricting and exercising is larger than that of normal controls. Interestingly hippocampal volume of healthy individuals who engage in food restriction and exercise is also enlarged and is considered to have a protective function (Beadle et al, 2014). Neurotransmitters and cells The pathogenic involvement of the serotonergic system in eating disorders is an established finding (Sigurth et al, 2013). Dopamine (DA) dysfunction, particularly in striatal circuits, may contribute to altered reward centre responses (Kontis and Theochari et al, 2012). The clinical picture The clinical picture is embodied in the DSM-5 diagnostic criteria listed above. The patient is usually a teenage female, brought in by her parents. There has been weight loss, cessation of the menses, fine hair growth on the face and limbs, refusal to eat in the manner expected for her age and family circumstances, particular avoidance of carbohydrate and fatty foods, frequent weighing, often vomiting and excessive laxative use, insomnia, irritability, sensitivity to cold, and withdrawal from friends. The hands and feet are cold, the skin is dry, the pulse is slow (50-60/min) and the blood pressure is low (e. There may be calluses on the dorsum of the second and third digits through frequent contact with the front teeth and erosion of Pridmore S. There may be disorder of hormones, including cortisol, gonadal and thyroid hormones. History taking and subsequent management may be difficult. The patient frequently believes that overweight is indicative of greed and deserving of social ostracism. She frequently maintains that she is overweight, in spite of evidence to the contrary. Gonadotrophins and oestrogens are low or undetectable. The 24 hour urinary cortisol is elevated and plasma tri- iodothyroxine is low (Krassas, 2003). The complications of starvation include fluid and electrolyte disturbance, peripheral oedema, hypoglycaemia, myopathy, osteoporosis and thrombocytopenic purpura.
