Lesson objective – to learn what well-being and disease means
Find out in your own words.
Task 4 – research two diseases from the classifications. Could you all investigate different ones. We will compare them when I get back.
Task 5 – communicable and non-communicable diseases- Complete a small research task , place this on a display board. Images of symptoms and possible flow charts showing how these diseases can be transferred from one person to another.
Diseases with the largest total annual health burden from environmental factors, in terms of death, illness and disability or Disability Adjusted Life Years (DALYs)1 are:
Diarrhoea (58 million DALYS per year; 94% of the diarrhoeal burden of disease) largely from unsafe water, sanitation and hygiene
Lower respiratory infections (37 million DALYs per year; 41% of all cases globally) largely from air pollution, indoor and outdoor.
Unintentional injuries other than road traffic injuries (21 million DALYs per year; 44 % of all cases globally), classification which includes a wide range of industrial and workplace accidents.
Malaria (19 million DALYs per year; 42% of all cases globally), largely as a result of poor water resource, housing and land use management which fails to curb vector populations effectively.
Road traffic injuries (15 million DALYS per year; 40% of all cases globally), largely as a result of poor urban design or poor environmental design of transport systems.
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary disease (COPD) -- a slowly progressing disease characterized by a gradual loss of lung function. (COPD, 12 million DALYs per year; 42% of all cases globally) largely as a result of exposures to workplace dusts and fumes and other forms of indoor and outdoor air pollution.
Perinatal conditions (11 million DALYS per year; 11% of all cases globally).
Task 6 –
Think about how different environments affect the health of people. Diseases such as: - now complete a poster about how to stop or prevent one of these environmental diseases.
