    • Epidemiological Transition Model • 1. Modernisation and development creates epidemiological transition • 2. With modernisation, or increasing affluence, comes a different range of illnesses • 3. Initially there were 3 stages ranging from pestilence to ‘human induced illness’ • 4. There are 3 variations of the basic model which correlates to different areas and the speed to which they pass through the stages ‘western’, ‘accelerated’ and ‘delayed’
    • Epidemiological Transition Model • Study the graph on page 21 • Describe what you see • Complete the activity on the bottom of page 21
    • Famine • F.A.O = Food and Agricultural Society • 800million have chronic malnutrition • Enough food is produced globally to provide 2,700calories to everyone each day • Malnutrition = a condition from dietary deficiency • Undernourishment = Not eating enough food over a period of time
    • Famine • We live in a globalised world – why isn’t everyone getting their fair share? • Natural events and human mismanagement • May be food exported but not that individual families can afford 3 Reasons why famine occurs: • DROUGHT • ARITHMETIC CROP GROWTH • PRICE INFLATION
    • Drought Case Study
    • Short Term Solutions to Famine • SHORT TERM • Usually carried out by N.G.Os such as charities. Aquinas alone raises significant amounts of money for CAFOD who respond to famines • Overdependence can be a problem with short term aid – there is only a limited supply and it might damage the local agricultural economy • TASK: To remember the issues relating to famine relief C.D.F.I.C.T – stick on walls
    • Long Term Solutions to Famine • • • • Making famine help more productive Usually comes in farming – SYNTHESIS Using improved technology or fertilisers Getting the produce to markets more quickly whilst it is still fresh and desirable • Easing international trade and cancelling national debts • Drop the Debt – Make Poverty History

    • Extension Task/Homework • ‘Discuss causes and consequences of periodic famine’ – 15 Jan 2012 • Famine: what is famine incl. examples • What are the causes of famine? • Which strata of society will suffer the most? • Consequences: Livestock, food, mass migration • International aid efforts
    • Extension Task/Homework • • • • • • ‘Discuss causes and consequences of obesity’ Obesity: what is obesity incl. examples What are the causes of obesity? Which strata of society will suffer the most? Consequences: N.C.Ds, government, social Government attempts to stop obesity
