Nurses' Knowledge, Attitudes, And Practices Of Universal Precaution Toward HIV/AIDS Transmission In A District Hospital West Java Province, Indonesia.

The study revealed that the majority of respondents (74%) reported experience of sharp injuries including needle stick injury, glass broken, and knife cutting within one year ago. More than a half of respondents (52%) had a good knowledge level about universal precaution and HIV/AIDS transmission. More than a half of respondents (51%) also showed favorable attitude toward caring for HIV/AIDS patients. “Washing hand by using antiseptics agents after doing procedures which likely generate splashes and sprays of blood or body fluids of patients” was selected as the most practice item that always or often performed by respondents (M=3,91 SD=0,286). Two handed needle recapping method was still commonly practiced by respondents before disposing the needle (M=3,78 SD=0,683). There was little respondents reported wearing hand gloves while injecting medication or drawing blood sample from the patients. There was significant relationship between knowledge and practice score (r = 0,271 p = < 0, 01), whereas no relationship was found between both knowledge and attitude score, and attitude and practice score. This study implied that prevention measures need to be taken immediately to prevent and minimize the occurrence of sharp injuries among nurses in order to assure safety working condition to improve the productivity of nursing service. Updating knowledge, developing positive attitude, and continuing evaluation should be done simultaneously to improve the nurses’ competence in preventing the occupational related-diseases.

Malaria In North Sumatera Province

Malaria In North Sumatera Province

Malaria is a chronic, invalid-producing disease which does not directly kill more than 1 or 2 per-cent of its victims, although it is often a major cause of infant mortality. The disease results in increasing the number of deaths from other causes and it reduces life expectancy, except in epidemic times, it is insidious rather than dramatic. Nevertheless over centuries, malaria has had a profound influence on thousands of communities throughout the world. But there is ample testimony to the fact that malaria has been one of the great scourges of humanity because of its deleterious stunting of physical and mental development, its notorious restricting of social and national growth, and its blighting of agriculture, commerce and industry.

The illustration in Figure 2.3 explains that the increase in government spending has the shape is not linear but exponential shape. The exponential form of the curve is shown by the curve 1 and not the curve 2. In economic growth increasingly large and complex, hence the greater industrial relations, relations between industry and the public is also more complicated and complex. Thus the role of government becomes even greater because the government must regulate relations arising in society, law, education, culture, health and so on. This could take place if the government considers as free individuals acting apart from the other members (Mangkoesoebroto, 2001).

KNOWLEDGE, ATTITUDE, AND BEHAVIOR OF FILARIASIS AND EFFECT ENDEMICITY POST TREATMENT IN EAST TANJUNG JABUNG DISTRICT

Lymphatic filariasis (elephantiasis) is a health problem in Indonesia, including in East Tanjung Jabung. Lymphatic filariasis elimination program in Indonesia was done by breaking the chain of transmission of filariasis with mass drug administration (MDA). The effectiveness of MDA program depends on knowledge, attitudes and practice (KAP) of the community. This study aims to determine the KAP towards lymphatic filariasis and evaluate MDA program. The study was conducted in two phases, namely interviews and finger blood survey (FBS). The number of respondents who interviewed were 117 and the number of people who had blood tests as many as 1,209. Interviews result showed that most respondents knew about lymphatic filariasis. The attitude of the majority of respondents showed a positive attitude. Interviews showed that the behavior of people taking medication was high (88%). Based on the results of the proportion of positive FBS, microfilariae were dominants found in people who do not take medication. Although the knowledge of community is high, the East Tanjung Jabung still declared as filariasis- endemic areas because it found the village with a number of microfilaria (Mf rate) of more than 1%.

Malaria and Anopheles spp in the villages of Salubarana and Kadaila, Mamuju District, South Sulawesi Province, Indonesia

Province that shares a border with the Central Sulawesi Province and is located along the 400-km length of the west coastal line of Sulawesi. Mamuju district occupies a vast area of 11,057 km 2 and is divided into 15 subdistricts (Figure 1). The marshland along its vast coastal line had been either cultivated or converted into fishponds whereas the inland part is a tropical rain forest. Most of the area is used for cacao, coconut and palm oil plantations, however rice is also cultivated. In line with the government policy to re- distribute people from the over-populated islands of Java, Bali and Lombok, several forest areas in Mamuju were opened for human settlements in 1992. This included re-settlement of the local Mandarese ethnic group of Salubarana Village to the area along the newly established trans-Sulawesi road connected the district to the rest of the provinces of Sulawesi and the migration of the Buginese, Javanese, Balinese and Lombokese to the newly established Kadaila Village in 1995.

Other symptoms found on the fish’s body sur- face are bleeding and skin wound. Bleeding symptom occurs due to the rupture of the blood vessel. In the artery or vein, it can caused by sev- eral things such as trauma, inflammation, or ero- sion of blood vessel wall. Wound or skin damage can caused by the rough treatment and ectopar- asitic infestation resulting in elevated sensitivity to secondary infection.

Malaria in Jayapura District, Papua Province, Indonesia and resistance to sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine

Malaria in Jayapura District, Papua Province, Indonesia and resistance to sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine

The malariometric survey indicated that all selected villages have a meso - to high endemic status. Areas with mesoendemic status include coastal Hamadi whereas Depapre, Tablasupa I and II, of the Depapre sub-district had high endemic status. In all villages, two species of the malaria parasites, P. falciparum and P. vivax were found either as a single infection or mixed of the two species. This malaria situation, although only indicated the point prevalence and probably does not really reflect the annual parasite incidence in the area, is relatively similar to that reported previously in various sites in Papua. 5, 12 , 13 Based on the age group, nearly half of the malaria cases were from the age group of less than 10 year old. Of these, 20 subjects had age ranged from 0-4 years. The mixed infection cases were also mainly found in this age group. The findings are in accordance with the common phenomenon in many malaria endemic regions where the younger age group is most vulnerable and also indicated that malaria transmission occurred in all selected villages. Malaria infection in infant and young children is generally associated with local transmission as they mostly stay at home and have not frequently traveled as that the elder age. The high proportion of falciparum malaria cases carrying gametocytes also indicated a high potential transmission in the surveyed area. This phenomenon was also recently seen in our study in West Sumba. 14
