Título: Leprosy - knowledge, attitudes and practices among clinic attenders

Resumo: OBJECTIVE: To investigate the knowledge, attitudes and practices among leprosy clinic attendees and to review the epidemiology of leprosy in Trinidad. DESIGN AND METHODS: A cross-sectional study was undertaken utilizing an interviewer administered structured questionnaire. All leprosy clinic attendees over the age of 18 years who attend 3 of the 5 leprosy clinics in Trinidad were included. Data were collected from April to July 2014. RESULTS: All 21 responders who were invited to participate agreed, giving a response rate of 100%. Fifty-two percent (52%) were unaware of how the disease is contracted. Most patients (81%) believed that educating the public would help eradicate leprosy-related stigma. Ninety percent (90%) reported that they were compliant with taking their medication and 86% reported that they attended all clinic appointments. The majority (76%) felt self-conscious about their disease and 50% have experienced negative feelings after diagnosis. CONCLUSION: Patients appear to be aware of signs and symptoms of leprosy but less so about transmission. There appears to be a need for educating patients about their illness as well as the public to reduce stigma associated with the illness. There was also a need for counselling of patients to minimize the reported distress, sadness and worry they experience after being diagnosed.

Título: The quality of life of Hansen's disease clients with disabilities compared to clients without disabilities in Trinidad and Tobago

Resumo: OBJECTIVE: This study aims to assess the quality of life of persons who have HansenÆs disease-related disabilities in Trinidad and Tobago, compared to persons with the disease who do not have a disability. DESIGN AND METHODS: The study was quantitative, cross-sectional, comparative in design, conducted in the HansenÆs Disease Dermatology Clinics of Trinidad and Tobago, between February 2014 and April 2014. It was a convenience sample of the 122 respondents, 26 were HansenÆs Disease clients with disabilities, 51 had the disease but without disabilities, while 45 were clients with other Dermatological conditions. The WGO Quality of Life (WHOQOL-BREF) questionnaire was interviewer-administered after consent. RESULTS: The largest group of persons who rated their quality of life as good or very good was the persons with HansenÆs Disease that had no disability (30%), only 12% of persons with HansenÆs Disease-related disability rated their quality of life as good or very good. The mean quality of life scores (and standard deviations) for HansenÆs Disease clients without disability was 78.61 (9.6), Non-HansenÆs clients was 72.23 (11.8) and HansenÆs Disease clients with disability was 67.40 (13.9). CONCLUSIONS: The quality of life of the HansenÆs Disease clients with disabilities was found to be lower than the other two groups of clients.

Idioma: En.
Resumo: Leprosy is still a major public health problem in most countries of Africa, Asia and Latin America. Leprosy patients with disabilities continue to be an important cause for concern and a socioeconomic burden in these countries. However, compared with what was observed about a decade ago, the leprosy situation has vastly improved, both in quantitative and qualitative terms. This largely results from the introduction of multidrug therapy (MDT) in the early 1980s. The present report is essentially an update on the progress made since October 1990 (AU)

Resumo: The eradication of smallpox from the world in 1977 proved the feasibility of infectious disease eradication. The International Task Force for Disease Eradication (ITFDE) is assessing the potential for global eradication of other infectious diseases. This report summarizes the ITFDE's findings on the potential to eradicate eight diseases based on draft versions of criteria under development (AU)

Resumo: Even with the constant decline in the incidence of Hansen's disease in Jamaica and declared elimination status in 1981, there is still a high percentage of patients being registered with multibacillary type of Hansen's disease and with disabilities at the time of diagnosis. The increase is noted, at a time when the global focus is on Hansen's disease eradication by the year 2000. Young adults are the group most at risk for Hansen's disease and its complications. Delayed diagnoses have resulted in an increase in deformities. Men are more prone to disabilities and the severe type of the disease (RR=1.00). Children have been diagnosed with the multibacillary type of the disease. A retrospective study was conducted, over the period 1982 to 1996, in order to analyse the disability trends and what it means for the Hansen's disease control programme in Jamaica. It was demonstrated that among the 88 patients graded 42 percent had disability, of which the most common was that of the hand (OR=5.33 P=0.03). These findings indicate that there is an urgent need for active case finding of Hansen's disease patients in Jamaica. Early case finding must be seen as the key to an effective 'prevention of disability' programme (AU)
