Abstract: the involuntary loss of fecal mass, not being really a disease in itself is, at times, to the person who suffers, more important that the situation that provokes. steal the body and use it, it is more, steal their mind, their thoughts, their sensations, feelings and fears; do you feel his mental tension when closing the door? do you cry of anger and sadness when changing stained clothes? this is just a thousandth part of what happens. imagine at age of 70 or 80, with a tired and slow body, with the mind not very willing to fight and with this "little problem".

Matos Bazó,Ruth; Vargas Acosta,Egleé;
Gaceta Laboral , 2008,
Abstract: the purpose of this study is to present an analysis of the opinion held by the recipients (beneficiaries) regarding the health benefits offered by the ?inside the neighborhood mission.? although this analysis is not a full-fledged evaluation, it permits taking an approach to the ?social impact? generated by the mission. one of the elements used to measure the social impact of a program is the achievement of ?desired changes? in the recipient (satisfying needs, generating organized participation, propitiating changes in attitude and in general, improving living conditions for the population to which the program is directed). within the framework of a broader investigation, questions related to the purpose of this study were selected. with the criterion of approaching the maximum temporal and spatial spectrum possible, four (4) surveys were performed from april, 2006, to june, 2007, in different geographical and population units of the state of zulia, creating a total sample of 263 beneficiaries. the study considers that the missions, as a social policy, continue maintaining a welfare character, because they continue confusing what is social with what is welfare, and finally, they continue considering themselves as a legitimating factor for government actions.

Nathan B. W. Chimbatata, Chikondi Malimba
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2016.48012
Abstract: Infertility or childlessness is a major reproductive health issue for females as well as males respectively. Many couples suffer from infertility worldwide and in Sub-Saharan Africa, which has a cultural preference for high fertility; women shoulder the highest infertility consequences. The objective of this review was therefore to explore socially acceptable and culturally effective reproductive health strategies for the social management of infertility in sub-Sahara Africa. Different databases were searched to source articles on infertility in Sub-Saharan Africa. The databases included Medline, Pubmed and Fudan University library. Google scholar was also utilized to get additional relevant articles. Titles and abstracts of the articles searched were critically evaluated for relevance based on the inclusion criteria. Final extraction of the articles was done by getting only those studies that met the inclusion criteria. Twenty articles were identified and five were included in this review. The findings reveal three main themes: perception, health seeking behavior and the social impact of infertility. In many Sub-Saharan Africa societies, there is negative perception of infertility problem as such those affected do not seek medical attention early. There is also a disproportionate social impact of infertility on women in the region. In Sub-Saharan Africa, high value is placed on children and those who are infertile are greatly stigmatized. In such a setting, the concept of reproductive health should include policies which could make it possible for couples and the whole society aware of the reality of infertility as a reproductive health problem and seek medical attention early.

Carol Poon Man Wai
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2017.59011
Abstract: In recent years, Hong Kong Education Authority has been zealously encouraging schools to reform the current teaching profession, so as to raise students’ critical thinking and creativity, as well as to enhance their innovation and motivation of learning. Along with this, American scholars (Clements 2013 [1]; Levi 2013 [2]; McCarthy 2009 [3]; McWilliam 2009 [4]) have encouraged the educational circles vigorously that they should apply innovation teaching in the teaching profession. Actually this strategy has been widely examined in United State and Japan for a period of time and the outcome is quite fruitful. Based on the lessons from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, this paper aims to shed light on a heavily under-researched multidisciplinary area: innovation and education. With a focus in the Tohoku University in Japan and The Open University of Hong Kong, this paper will examine the issue via cultural history, education policy and related social systems together with “the traditional custom”. Furthermore, this paper aims to redefine the concept of innovation in nowadays higher education teaching, to serve as a reference for potential change agents as they consider ways and means to created improved learning environments at universities and institutions, to enhance the educational circles’ interest and understanding in utilizing such new medium as well as the social power. And finally it examines and compares the social impact on the introduction of innovation teaching in higher education profession. Apart from literature studies, this paper will carry out a field study and interview in both Hong Kong and Japan, and also field observation in Tohoku University.
