Who’s Who | The Big Push Forward Rosalind Eyben Rosalind Eyben is one of the co-convenors of the Big Push Forward. She has been a Fellow at the Institute of Development Studies where she is a member of the Participation, Power and Social Change team [link] where she works on power and relations in the international aid system. She was previously employed by the UK Department for International Development and before that as consultant and adviser to the ILO, FAO and other United Nations agencies.

Social Programs That Work The Programs We’ve Identified Are Linked Below Programs identified as having the most credible evidence of effectiveness, based on careful review in consultation with outside experts, are categorized as “Top Tier” or “Near Top Tier” (see sidebar for definitions). The other listed programs have been found promising but not yet Top Tier or Near Top Tier due to study limitations (such as only short-term follow-up) that underscore the need for additional testing prior to larger-scale implementation. Top Tier Nurse-Family Partnership (A nurse home visitation program for low-income, pregnant women): Randomized controlled trials show major impact on life outcomes of the mothers and their children. Near Top Tier Triple P System (A system of parenting programs for families with children age 0-8): Randomized controlled trial of the full system as implemented county-wide shows sizable reductions in child maltreatment and foster care placements.

Oméga-3 Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Les acides gras oméga-3, notés également ω3 (ou encore n-3[1]), sont des acides gras polyinsaturés que l'on trouve en grandes quantités dans certains poissons gras, dans les graines de chia, le lin, la noix, la cameline, le colza et le soja. Des régimes alimentaires apportant une excellente quantité de ces aliments riches en oméga-3 sont le régime méditerranéen[2], le régime préhistorique[3] et le régime Okinawa[4]. Les oméga-3 et les oméga-6 sont classés acides gras essentiels, car l'organisme humain en a absolument besoin mais ne peut les produire lui-même, il doit donc les retrouver tels quels dans son alimentation. Chimie[modifier | modifier le code] Structure moléculaire de l'acide α-linolénique (ALA). Les acides gras oméga-3 sont dits poly-insaturés car leur chaîne carbonée comprend plusieurs doubles liaisons[6]. Les principaux acides gras du groupe oméga-3 sont : Mécanismes d'action[modifier | modifier le code] Graines de chia.

In applying scientific criteria, the agencies should consider the following standards: Evidence for efficacy or effectiveness of prevention and promotion programs should be based on designs that provide significant confidence in the results. 1 National Research Council and Institute of Medicine.

Rencontre avec le Dr Jean-Michel Lecerf, Président du Conseil d'Administration de la Fondation Growing Inclusive Markets | Business works for development | Development works for business The #1 reason people die early, in each country You're probably aware that heart disease and cancer are far and away the leading causes of death in America. But globally the picture is more complicated: (Vox / Anand Katakam and Joss Fong) It's worth stressing that "cause of lost years of life" and "cause of death" aren't identical. For example, deaths from preterm births may cause more lost years of life in a country than deaths from heart disease even if heart disease is the leading cause of death. But that makes the fact that heart disease is the leading cause of lost life in so many countries all the more striking, and indicative of those countries' successes in reducing childhood mortality. On the flipside, the world is getting better in a great number of ways:

Sustainable Development Goals Logo of the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) refer to an agreement of the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development held in Rio de Janeiro in June 2012 (Rio+20), to develop a set of future international development goals. The UN General Assembly's Open Working Group on Sustainable Development Goals on 19 July 2014 forwarded to the Assembly its proposal for a set of SDGs. The proposal contains 17 goals with 169 targets covering a broad range of sustainable development issues, including ending poverty and hunger, improving health and education, making cities more sustainable, combating climate change, and protecting oceans and forests.[1] Background[edit] The current development agenda is centred on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) that were officially established following the Millennium Summit of the United Nations (UN) in 2000.
