Antibiotics are commonly used in the outpatient setting, particularly in the treatment of upper respiratory tract infection. These infections include acute bronchitis, sore throat, ear infection, and sinusitis. However, the benefits of antibiotics are highly dependent upon the specific infection. Antibiotics are associated with complications in some patients, including allergies and other side effects. Additionally, zinc and other agents offer potential benefit in the treatment of infection, particularly those associated with viruses. B. Joseph Guglielmo, Professor and Dean at the UCSF School of Pharmacy, provides guidance in the safe, effective use of antibiotics in the treatment of upper respiratory tract infection.

The World Health Organization says cervical cancer is the second most common form of the disease among women, and it's particularly prevalent in developing countries. The 2008 Nobel Prize Winner for Medicine, Harald zur Hausen, discovered that cervical cancer was caused by human papillomavirus (HVP), and an anti-HVP vaccine has been developed. It's too expensive for poor countries, but thanks to help from the GAVI Alliance public-private partnership, Rwanda has become the first African country to offer nationwide vaccinations. Tomorrow Today takes a closer look at this groundbreaking project.

It is well known that children in homes where addiction is present are at great risk of having substance use disorders and lifelong mental health problems. Targeting these families is not only a priority treatment and recovery concern but an effective prevention strategy as well. To prevent mental and substance use disorders, it is critical to work directly with the family environments in which these disorders originate. This show will delve into the relationship of addiction and trauma, acknowledging the long-term impacts on children and families. Children of parents with alcohol or drug addictions (including parents with these disorders who are incarcerated) commonly become involved with child welfare and foster care systems, creating additional long-term challenges. Strategies for identifying and working with troubled families to break the cycle of addiction will be presented.
