Do doctors in north-western Somalia follow the national guidelines for tuberculosis management?
Suleiman, B.A.; Houssein, A.I.; Mehta, F.; Hinderaker, S.G. ( 2003 )

A cross-sectional study assessed the knowledge and practices of registered practitioners in management of tuberculosis [TB] in north-western Somalia. Of 100 registered doctors, 53 were interviewed. Of these, 32 [64%] had treated TB patients during the previous year, but only 1 had notified the authorities, 33 [66%] knew the most important symptoms and 32 [64%] identified sputum smear microscopy as the most important diagnostic test. Only 4 doctors prescribed the correct regimen and only 7 advocated direct observation. Suboptimal knowledge was more common among doctors working in private practice [relative risk: 2.1; 95% CI: 1.1-4.3]. Patients are being treated in the private sector, but few doctors follow national treatment guidelines. Training in diagnosis and case management is needed to improve TB control in Somalia

Do free-of-charge public health services impede cost recovery policies in Khartoum state, Sudan?
Habbani, K.; Groot, W.; Jelovac, I. ( 2007 )

We carried out a household survey in Khartoum state in 2001 to analyse the characteristics of those who receive free public health services and to ascertain whether there are any impediments to cost recovery policies for health care use. Data were collected through interviews based on an adapted questionnaire. Those who had other income, always or sometimes had dependents and visited the health services twice in the previous 3 months were more likely to receive free public health services. This does not support claims that beneficiaries of these services are the well-off

Do personal beliefs and peers affect the practice of alcohol consumption in university students in Lebanon?
Salam‚, J.; Barbour, B.; Salameh, P. ( 2013 )

Alcohol consumption is frequent among university students in Lebanon as elsewhere in the world. A cross- sectional study was conducted in Lebanon's public and private universities between October 2009 and September 2010 using a standardized questionnaire to assess personal beliefs about alcohol consumption, peers' behaviours and opinions and history of and current drinking practices. Of 1235 students, 199 [16.1%] had an AUDIT score >/=. Older age, male sex, Christian religion, attending a private university, studying a non-health specialty and residing in Beirut or Mount Lebanon were associated with a higher risk of harmful drinking. Beliefs concerning alcohol consumption and peers' opinions and behaviours were factors significantly associated with harmful drinking, especially: ignoring the dangers of alcohol consumption; higher frequency of consumption with friends; and a higher proportion of friends who drank regularly. University students'alcohol drinking behaviour was mostly influenced by peers' behaviour, and a peer education programme is recommended to decrease the risk of harmful drinking

Shah, S.K.; Sadiq, H.; Khalil, M.; Noor, A.; Rasheed, G.; Shah, S.M.; Ahmad, N. ( 2003 )

As private medical practitioners play a major role of in providing care to pulmonary tuberculosis [TB] patients, a survey was made of knowledge and practice in 2 cities in Pakistan. Only 1 of the 245 physicians was aware that cough > 3 weeks alone is the main symptom suggesting pulmonary TB. The majority diagnosed [80%] and treated [83%] cases themselves without referral. Less than 1% relied on sputum microscopy alone for diagnosis. None of the practitioners were following National TB Control guidelines for prescribing drugs and none ensured compliance with anti-TB treatment under supervision of a doctor/health worker. Only 3% kept records of pulmonary TB patients. None of the physicians assessed the effectiveness of treatment with sputum microscopy alone; the majority [76%] used only clinical assessment

Nwhator, S.O.; Olagundoye, O. ( 2009 )

Smoking is a major, preventable risk factor for periodontitis.
