Venezuela's publichealth crisis: a regional emergency. The economic crisis in Venezuela has eroded the country's health-care infrastructure and threatened the publichealth of its people. Shortages in medications, health supplies, interruptions of basic utilities at health-care facilities, and the emigration of health-care workers have led to a progressive decline in the operational capacity of health care. The effect of the crisis on publichealth has been difficult to quantify since (...) the Venezuelan Ministry of Health stopped publishing crucial publichealth statistics in 2016. We prepared a synthesis of health information, beyond what is available from other sources, and scholarly discussion of engagement strategies for the international community. Data were identified through searches in MEDLINE, PubMed, and the grey literature, through references from relevant articles, and governmental and non-governmental reports, and publicly available databases. Articles published in English
More talk than action: gender and ethnic diversity in leading publichealth universities. Improving the career progression of women and ethnic minorities in publichealth universities has been a longstanding challenge, which we believe might be addressed by including staff diversity data in university rankings. We present findings from a mixed methods investigation of gender-related and ethnicity-related differences in career progression at the 15 highest ranked social sciences and public (...) health universities in the world, including an analysis of the intersection between sex and ethnicity. Our study revealed that clear gender and ethnic disparities remain at the most senior academic positions, despite numerous diversity policies and action plans reported. In all universities, representation of women declined between middle and senior academic levels, despite women outnumbering men at the junior level. Ethnic-minority women might have a magnified disadvantage because ethnic-minority
Publichealth interventions may offer society a return on investment of £14 for each £1 spent Publichealth interventions may offer society a return on investment of £14 for each £1 spent Discover Portal Discover Portal Publichealth interventions may offer society a return on investment of £14 for each £1 spent Published on 18 July 2017 doi: Each £1 invested in publichealth interventions could offer an average return on investment to the wider health and social care economy of £14 (...) return, within 18 months. These findings apply to high-income countries. There are some limitations to the data, as a variety of calculation techniques were used and the quality of the included studies varied. However, these are unlikely to alter the direction or approximate size of these effects. The study shows how cost-effective publichealth interventions can be and should inspire future research into how to better implement what is already known. Share your views on the research. Why
Law enforcement and publichealth: recognition and enhancement of joined-up solutions. Public security and law enforcement have a crucial but often largely unacknowledged role in protecting and promoting publichealth. Although the security sector is a key partner in many specific publichealth programmes, its identity as an important part of the publichealth endeavour is rarely recognised. This absence of recognition has resulted in a generally inadequate approach to research (...) and investigation of ways in which law enforcement, especially police at both operational and strategic levels, can be effectively engaged to actively promote and protect publichealth as part of a broader multisectoral publichealth effort. However, the challenge remains to engage police to consider their role as one that serves a publichealth function. The challenge consists of overcoming the continuous and competitive demand for police to do so-called policing, rather than serve a broader publichealth

Briefing paper 54: the publichealth implications of rising debt BRIEFING PAPER 54 October 2018 www.gcph.co.uk • Unsecure personal debt, including; credit cards, overdrafts and short-term loans, is at its highest level in the UK since before the 2008 economic recession; with the level projected to rise higher still in the coming years. • The high level of unsecure personal debt is related to the economy, labour market conditions, government policy and the re-emergence of irresponsible lending (...) practice. • Approximately 4.5 million borrowers with personal unsecure debt suffer moderate to severe ‘financial d istress’, experiencing financial difficu lties or other issues such as mental health problems from the strain of repaying their debts • The evidence reviewed makes clear the risks to publichealth; those with this form of debt are significantly more likel y to experience mental d isorders compared with the wider population and there are also proven links to worsened physical health
