Family planning, and preventive measures generally, are very important for the health of a society. Despite this, official policy in Hungary has not given them enough support and recognition in recent years. The latest "act for the protection of the fetus," issued some years ago, dealt mainly with abortion; shortly thereafter, the health insurance stopped subsidizing the cost of contraceptives. Nowadays, patients must pay full price not only for condoms, but for pills, IUDs and even sterilization. The cost of preventing unwanted pregnancies became high; for many today, the reliable, modern methods are almost unaffordable. This situation is more than strange in a country with such high numbers and rates of induced abortion. Another problem is that service providers have too few resources. In the wake of the political and fiscal changes that have taken place since the early 1990s, the state does not have enough money to meet the need for this type of preventive work. There are still few non-governmental organizations (NGOs) operating in Hungary: those that there are do not yet have the financial strength to sponsor these initiatives. In light of these circumstances, decision makers concerned to reverse the disturbing demographic trends should concentrate on changing the health policy.
We study a problem where a group of agents has to decide how a joint reward
Should be shared among them. We focus on settings where the share that each
Agent receives depends on the subjective opinions of its peers concerning that
Agent's contribution to the group. To this end, we introduce a mechan...
We analyze high quality abundances data of solar neighborhood stars and show
That there are two distinct regimes of [alpha/Fe] versus age which we identify
As the epochs of the thick and thin disk formation. A tight correlation between
Metallicity and [alpha/Fe] versus age is clearly identifiable on...
We calculate the expected rate of double-neutrino
Interactions from a single cosmic-ray air shower. The rate is small, about 0.07
