THE ROAD AHEAD
Transcript of THE ROAD AHEAD
Why choose this road?
Intestinal Parasites: a Foundation of Emerging Dual Burden Households in Rural and Urban Areas in Colombia?
Poverty Dual Burden
RURAL OR URBAN AREAS
STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS
Explore the association between the double burden of malnutrition and intestinal parasitic infections in households in rural and urban Colombia.
Stunting in children:
- <-2 SD height-for-age Z-score
Overweight/Obesity in adults
- BMI > 25
- or Waist circumference:
females: ≥>=80 cm
males: ≥≥>=94 cm
Intestinal parasitic infection
- Kato-Katz method
--> infected = treated free of charge
Observational ecological cross-sectional study
Public health relevance
Traditional diet --> Western diet
Malnutrition = stunting + obesity
Shift in diet
Children 0-14 years and their parent(s)
1. Logistic regression
2. Generalized Estimating Equations
--> Final model
: adjusting for effect modifiers/confounders:
location; SES; age; gender; food security; water resources; head and size of household
Exploring the gap
-Improve intervention programs
-Decrease morbidity & mortality
-Reduce health care costs

- Treatment free of charge
- Create awareness on healthy lifestyle
- Collaboration local health services
- Future research
- Solid base for emerging countries
Improved nutritional and infectious status of locals
Train field staff and leave resources behind
- Declined morbidity
- Increased work/school performance
- Reduced costs
...because it is the road to improvement
