Uruguay, A Country Study (Area Handbook Series)

This website contains the on-line versions of books previously published inhard copy by the Federal Research Division of the Library of Congress as part ofthe Country Studies/Area Handbook Series sponsored by the U.S. Department of theArmy between 1986 and 1998. Each study offers a comprehensive description andanalysis of the country or region's historical setting, geography, society,economy, political system, and foreign policy.

In familial cases, PJS is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner. The male to female ratio in our study was 1:0.67, which is similar to the ratio reported in Familial Polyposis Coli (1:0.61) [10]. About 50% of probands have an affected parent and about 50% have no family history of PJS [14]. In a Korean series of PJS patients, Choi et al. reported a family history in 47%, no family history in 50% and unknown in 3% [15]. In the current study, 46% of index cases had a positive family history.

It is likely that Uruguay is a unique country in the region in two ways: first, there is a deep commitment by the health professionals who have been advancing the sexual and reproductive rights agenda, in particular through the development and implementation of an innovative harm-reduction model, which helped increase access to safe abortion and usher in decriminalization. Second, in Uruguay there seems to be surprisingly little influence of religious sectors and of religious beliefs on sexual and reproductive health issues. For both abortion clients and health professionals, decriminalization in Uruguay followed logically from this unique history of experimentation with a harm-reduction model that significantly reduced maternal morbidity and mortality. Both health professionals and abortion clients in this study saw decriminalization as a key factor that contributed to mitigating negative social views surrounding abortion and to a substantial reduction of clandestine abortions. In this sense, it is undeniable that decriminalization has contributed towards reducing abortion stigma for both women and health professionals [22, 23].

Our country handbooks provide you with a great snapshot of what to expect abroad. Each handbook provides information on educational systems, visa regulations, health and safety, issues of daily life, and bibliographies and links to further information on your host country, including materials published by the U.S. Department of State.

Serologic evidence of influenza B virus has been reported from South American Uruguayan fur seals A. australis (Blanc et al., 2009). Thirty of the 37 serum samples assayed by HAI reacted against one of the three antigens used: 25/37 (68%) reacted against B/Beijing/184/93-like viruses, 20/37 (54%) reacted against B/Hong Kong/330/01, and 24/37 (65%) reacted against B/Sichuan/379/99. The results show that 17 sera reacted against all B antigens, only six reacted against two antigens and eight sera did not react against any of them. The highest titer reached was (640) against B/sichuan antigen. The results demonstrated influenza B virus circulation in South American fur seals for the first time in our country and in this species. The antigens assayed correspond to strains that circulated in humans between the years 1999 and 2001, 3 to 5 years after the study was carried out, confirming the hypothesis of other authors that marine mammals could be a reservoir of influenza strains that circulated in the past (Fig. 6). 350c69d7ab
