Adesina, F, Maduekwe N.  2014.  Multi Level Modelling of the Linkages Between Vegetation Cover Dynamics and Socio-economic Factors in the Idemili River Basin of Anambra State, Nigeria, 2014/09/02. Abstract

This study assesses the relationships between socio-economic factors and the spatial dynamics of vegetation cover inthe Idemili River Basin of South Eastern Nigeria. It is based on a socio-ecological systems dynamics modeling
concept highlighting locality scale relationships between vegetation cover densities and socio-demographic,
economic and socio-cultural factors in the basin. The modeling was implemented using regression techniques with
pixel level NDVI indicators of vegetation cover density developed from remote sensing image datasets and
indicators of eight socio-economic factors developed from a household survey of the basin. NDVI values for the
basin ranged from -.117 to .410 indicating a high level of human impact on vegetation. Modeling results showed that
bivariate relationships between vegetation cover dynamics and socio-demographic variables were the most
significant, with R Square values > .60 for linear and nonlinear models. Vegetation cover density had high inverse
correlations with population, urbanization levels and number of households in localities. Population/urbanization
status of localities was also the most significant principal component or underlying dimension linked to spatial
dynamics of vegetation cover in the basin accounting for 50% of factor variations. Relationships between vegetation
cover densities and economic factors (occupational and household energy patterns) and socio-cultural factors
(environmental knowledge, values and governance) were weaker, and less significant . The study showed that factor
interactions are a prominent aspect of vegetation-society relationship in the basin with both adverse and beneficial
implications to vegetation cover.

Rudolph, M, Ogunbodede E, Mistry M.  2007.  Management of the oral manifestations of HIV/AIDS by traditional healers and care givers, 2007/04/01. Curationis. 30:56-61. Abstract

In many communities of South Africa, traditional healers are often the only means of health care delivery available. The level of knowledge and ability to recognize oral lesions of 32 traditional healers and 17 care-givers were assessed after a two-day workshop. The data collection instrument was a structured questionnaire, complimented by enlarged clinical photographs of the common oral manifestations of HIV/AIDS. Prior to the workshop, 46 (93.9%) of the 49 respondents had never had any formal information on oral health and 43 (87.8%) were unfamiliar with the symptoms of oral diseases. Thirty-five (71.4%) recognized bleeding gums from A4-size photographs and 11 (22.4%) recognized oral thrush. The recognition of other oral manifestations of HIV/AIDS were; oral hairy leukoplakia (41.0%), angular cheilitis (43.6%), herpes virus infection (56.4%), oral ulcerations (56.8%), and in children, parotid enlargement (27.3%), and moluscum contagiosum (56.8%). Traditional healers and caregivers constitute an untapped resource with enormous potential. A positive bridge should be built to link traditional healing with modem medicine in the struggle against HIV/AIDS.

C Mathabathe, N, Rudolph M, Ogunbodede E.  2000.  Managed health care and dentists in the Gauteng province, 2000/04/01. SADJ : journal of the South African Dental Association = tydskrif van die Suid-Afrikaanse Tandheelkundige Vereniging. 55:132-5. Abstract

Managed health care (MHC) has emerged in South Africa as an alternative system to control the cost of health care. Fears, negative perceptions and much uncertainty have surrounded this issue since its introduction in South Africa. The purpose of this study was to assess the understanding, perceptions and opinions of dentists residing in the Gauteng province about the emergence, benefits, impact, and future of MHC in South Africa. Eighty-six dentists (21.5%) out of the sample population of 400 responded to the questionnaire. The majority (66.7%) of the respondents perceived MHC to be a threat to their practices, with most feeling that MHC will interfere with the doctor-patient relationship. Forty-two per cent of the respondents were of the opinion that MHC will not succeed in South Africa. The results suggest that this sample of dentists do not consider MHC to be an alternative to the existing fee-for-service system. The introduction of MHC in South Africa is mostly based on models used in the USA, which might not be appropriate in the unique South African environment.

Oseni, OM, Nailwal T, Pande V.  2020.  Momordica charantia L. (cucurbitaceae), a vegetable of utmost nutritive and pharmacological importance, 2020/07/08. :1-21. Abstract

Traditional medicine has been playing a crucial role in developing countries as it provides primary health care needs for a large majority of the population. This article reviews the current research on the phytochemicals, nutritive value, ethnobotanical uses, and pharmacological importance of Momordica charantia. The phytochemical analysis of this plant revealed that the plant is rich in nutrients and phytochemicals which are of great benefit. Also, the plant is among the plants popularly used in traditional medicine and has been proved to be effective. The biological activities of the plants had been carried out by many authors and their results have been documented. In addition, among the biological activities of these plant are antidiabetic, antiulcer, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, hypolipidemic, antibacterial, antimicrobial, antimalaria, antiviral, anticancer and antifertility. Moreover, some bioactive constituents such as alkaloids, tannins, flavonoids, saponins, glycosides, sterols, mucilages, and oleanolic acids are significantly present in the plant. It is now obvious that Momordica chlarantia can help as a natural source product in the treatment of many diseases particularly diabetes, cancers, cardiac, liver and kidney, malaria, and skin infection when properly administered.

Background:Mandibular fractures are universal in distribution but its aetiologies and presentation patterns differ from one country to another because of varying socioeconomic, cultural and geographical factors. We analysed the aetiological factors and presentation patterns of mandibular fractures in a tertiary hospital at Nigeria's second largest city.
Methods:
Patients with isolated mandibular fractures at Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital, Kano were prospectively reviewed over a 12-months period. Patients' demographic information and fracture characteristics (aetiology, site, pattern and number of fracture) were recorded and analysed.
Results:
One hundred and forty eight patients presented with 180 mandibular fractures. There were eight fold higher men with mandibular fractures than women (M: F = 8.3:1) with highest incidence in third decade of life. Road traffic accidents (84.46%) was the major aetiology while iatrogenic fracture (0.68%) was found in one patient. Mandibular body was the most fractured site (41.11%) with parasymphyseal and angle regions accounting for 27.78% and 23.89% of total recorded fractures respectively.
Conclusions:
Mandibular fractures in Kano, Northwest Nigeria occurred predominantly in men in the third decade and are mostly caused by road traffic accidents. The majority of these fractures involved the mandibular body.
