This study was undertaken to investigate the occurrence of metabolic syndrome (MetS) and cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk in Orang Asli (OA), the indigenous people of Peninsular Malaysia. OA consist of Negrito, Proto-Malay, and Senoi groups who collectively comprise only 0.76% of the population of Peninsular Malaysia. Owing to the challenges in accessing their remote villages, these groups are often excluded in larger government health surveys. Although tropical diseases were scourges in the past, with rapid national development, many OA communities have been gradually urbanized.

A routine review of hepatitis A travel vaccination recommendations was brought forward in June 2017 due to hepatitis A vaccine shortages and a concurrent outbreak in men who have sex with men (MSM). There were three objectives: first, to document the review process for changing the recommendations for the UK travellers in June 2017. Second, to study the impact of these changes on prescribing in general practice in 2017 compared with the previous 5 years. Third, to study any changes in hepatitis A notifications in June–October 2017 compared with the previous 5 years.

Being in public health, we know a thing or two about risk. Whether it is about individual behaviours, exposure to environmental hazards or contact with bacteria or viruses that are dealt with by healthcare services, we understand how certain things pose a risk to our health. At least as important, as population practitioners, we have an insight into what actions may militate the harm which such risks pose. Understanding the risk and how it can be more effectively managed is a theme which runs through this November issue of Public Health.
