Riyadh K Lafta, Nadia Falah
The problem of aggression towards health care staff is global. It negatively impacts on their psychological and physical well-being, and on their performance. This study was set to explore the exposure of healthcare personnel city to different forms of violence and the influence of this violence on their work and life. A sample of 700 healthcare workers was collected from six major hospitals and 20 primary health care centers in Baghdad. The questionnaire inquired about exposure to any sort of violence including insult, assaults, and displacement, being arrested, kidnapped, and intentionally injured or threatened at the workplace...

In the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo there are several support programmes for sexual violence survivors, but their impacts are rarely systematically assessed. We investigated the effects for women from two support programmes that include both survivors of sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) and others. Specifically, we estimated (1) the effect of SGBV on social exclusion and economic well-being, and (2) the effects of support programmes on social exclusion and economic well-being, as well as differential effects for SGBV survivors and others...

Nazdar Qudrat Abas, Dilshad Jaff
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a chronic but very treatable medical condition. Adhering to the therapy plan is considered one of the biggest challenges for OCD patients, especially when communities are insecure due to armed conflicts and political upheavals. This paper documents the results of using social media platforms (especially Facebook Messenger, which provides free internet access) to manage the symptoms of a young female with chronic OCD. The results suggest that social media can be a potentially effective therapeutic tool, mainly in situations where armed conflicts, displacement and insecurity are present and where more traditional customs and conservative norms are sometimes reinforced as a protective mechanism, particularly for women who may be prevented from following the classic person-to-person consultation protocol...

Forced migration affects overall health, especially when it happens at a young age. Focus group discussions and the Peace Evaluation Across Cultures and Environments (PEACE) survey were used to compare the effects of the programme on two groups: refugee university students who received full tuition support and a monthly living stipend (intervention group) and unsponsored Syrian students who were preparing for the end of high school examination (control group). The overall mean PEACE score among the intervention group was 152...

Studies have focused on both individual and community factors affecting the use of maternal healthcare services. However, studies in Nigeria have rarely examined whether the influence of individual and community factors in explaining the use of maternal healthcare has changed in the context of the Boko Haram insurgency in North-East Nigeria. This study investigates factors associated with the use of maternal healthcare services during the Boko Haram insurgency in North-East Nigeria. The study analysed data from the 2013 Nigeria Demographic and Health Survey...

This study explores how one social-structural variable, control over Sunni-Arab communities during the Iraq civil war, affected the types of violence used by insurgent/non-government actors that killed and injured civilians in these communities from January 2004 to December 2009. The study classifies three levels of control: (1) incumbent (government-supported) control, (2) insurgent control and (3) actively contested control. It uses Iraq Body Count (IBC) fatality data to characterize two general types of violence (selective and indiscriminate) evident during the Iraq conflict...

The Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW), adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in July 2017, has been met with mixed reactions. While supporters have described the Treaty as a watershed in the struggle for disarmament, others have expressed fervent opposition. One of the most serious charges levelled at the TPNW is that it will undermine the long-standing nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), by many regarded as a cornerstone of the international security architecture. Critics have contended that the new agreement risks eroding the system of safeguards designed to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons, derailing disarmament efforts within the NPT framework, and aggravating political division between nuclear and non-nuclear powers...
