"Disaster, war, conflict, complex emergencies and International public health risks."
Quinn V, John Michael ; Bencko, Vladimír (advisor) ; Tuček, Milan (referee) ; Chlíbek, Roman (referee)
PhD Thesis Abstract: John Michael Quinn V In the 21st century, the prevention of illness, disease and risks to health ushered in public health and medical practice with mixed results. War, hybrid warfare, conflict, complex emergencies and disasters remain significant public health risks and areas of strategic concern; focused epidemiological study in health policy remains elusive. The paradigm shift from major world powers leading global affairs and affecting global health to multiple state and non-state actors vying for power and influence regionally has possibly led to an increase in small scale and low intensity conflict with high morbidity and mortality, including both noncommunicable (NCD) and communicable diseases. The basic research carried out for this PhD project includes: 1) mental health surveys and trauma associated with war; 2) the migration of, and the need for, advanced medical personnel and their services in war and hybrid warfare, including how the negative movement or adverse flow through 'brain drain' of doctors affects disaster; 3) a quantitative study of infectious diseases, health and human security associated with state stability and the mitigation of state failure; 4) a qualitative food security review, the origins of food security and its impact; and 5) the general concepts of...

The objective of the presented thesis was to evaluate epidemiological and clinical characteristics of the most significant tropical febrile infections imported to the Czech Republic, which include dengue and chikungunya fever, malaria and enteric fever. This retrospective-prospective study included a total of 292 patients with fever after a stay in the tropics who were treated at the Department of Infectious, Parasitic and Tropical Diseases of Hospital Na Bulovce in the years 2006-2014. The most common illnesses were dengue fever (52.1%), followed by malaria (37.3%), enteric fever (6.2%) and chikungunya fever (4.4%). Dengue fever was imported in 88.2% cases from Southeast or South Asia and malaria in 63.3% from Sub-Saharan Africa. Typical clinical and laboratory findings in dengue fever included headache (72.4%), rash (71.7%), muscle (67.6%) and joint pain (62.1%), leukocytopenia (26.5%), thrombocytopenia (22.4%), and low CRP (57.1%). Presented study confirmed that laboratory parameters differ in the acute and early convalescent phase of dengue fever. A total of 62.7% patients with malaria reported hedache and other frequent symptoms were dyspepsia (45.1%), dehydration (30.4%) and tachycardia (28.4%). Laboratory findings included high CRP (71.4%), decreased platelet count (52.4%) and...
