OBJECTIVES: We analyze the impact of adolescent motherhood on several education and labor market outcomes in Chile over the 1990-2013 period. We explore whether effects are different across income levels, timing of adolescent births, and three sub-periods. METHODS: Using the CASEN national household survey, we applied propensity score-matching methods on two samples of women aged 24: one for women in the 2009-2013 period and another sample of 24-year-old women living with their mother between 1990-2013...

OBJECTIVES: We studied the influence of different additive materials (lime, and rice husk) and aeration conditions on Ascaris lumbricoides egg die-off in 24 vaults of an experimental excreta storage unit. METHODS: Excreta samples were collected once every two weeks over a 181-day period. Temperature, pH, and moisture content were recorded. A. lumbricoides eggs were quantitatively analyzed by the Romanenko method, which identified and counted live and dead eggs. RESULTS: From the first sampling (0 storage day) to the final sampling (181 storage days) the average percentage of viable A...

OBJECTIVES: This study assesses the risk of exposure to hazardous chemical residues in pork meat, liver, and kidney collected at wet markets in Nghe An and Hung Yen provinces and discusses health impact implication. METHODS: 514 pig feed, kidney, liver, and pork samples were pooled and qualitatively and quantitatively analyzed for tetracyclines, fluoroquinolones, sulphonamide, chloramphenicol, β-agonists, and heavy metals. We compare the results with current regulations on chemical residues and discuss health implications...

OBJECTIVES: To perform a needs assessment of maternal distress to plan the development of an intervention for the prevention and reduction of antenatal maternal distress. METHODS: We searched PubMed, OVID and EBSCO and applied the PRECEDE logic model to select the data. Experts in the field validated the findings. RESULTS: We identified 45 studies. Maternal distress was associated with diminished maternal and child's quality of life. Aetiological factors of maternal distress included past and present circumstances related to obstetric factors and to a woman's context of living, coping behaviour, and support mechanisms...

OBJECTIVES: The Vietnamese government is committed to universal health care largely through social health insurance. The near-poor population is entitled to subsidized but not free insurance under this scheme, but remains under-represented compared to other groups. The aims of this research were to estimate the health insurance coverage of the near-poor in rural Vietnam and identify the individual and household factors associated with health insurance status. METHODS: Rates of health insurance coverage were estimated from district-level administrative data...
