Prevention and Mitigation .
Disaster Mitigation .
Predisaster Mitigation .
Mitigation .
Mitigation: Measures taken in advance of a disaster aimed at decreasing or eliminating its impact on society and environment. Prevention: Activities designed to offer permanent protection against a disaster. They Include engineering and other physical protection measures, as well as legislation to control land use and urban planning. (Material II - IDNDR, 1992) A collective term used to encompass all activities undertaken in anticipation of the occurrence of a potentially disasterous event, including preparedness and long-term risk reduction measures. The process of planning and implementing measures to reduce the risks associated with known natural and man-made hazards and to deal with disasters which do occur. Strategies and specific measures are designed on the basis of risk assessments and political decisions concerning the levels of risk which are considered to be acceptable and the resources to be allocated (by the national and sub-national authorities and external donors). Mitigation has been used by some institutions/authors in a narrower sense, excluding preparedness. It has occasionally been defined to include postdisaster response, then being equivalent to disaster management. (DHA - Department of Humanitarian Affairs, DMTP - Disaster Management Training Program. Disaster Mitigation, 2nd ed. Glossary, 1994: .
Acaricides .
Mite Control Agent .
Miticide .
Agent, Mite Control .
Control Agent, Mite .
A pesticide or chemical agent that kills mites and ticks. This is a large class that includes carbamates, formamides, organochlorines, organophosphates, etc, that act as antibiotics or growth regulators. .
Mites .
Mite 6851 .
Acarus .
Any arthropod of the subclass ACARI except the TICKS. They are minute animals related to the spiders, usually having transparent or semitransparent bodies. They may be parasitic on humans and domestic animals, producing various irritations of the skin (MITE INFESTATIONS). Many mite species are important to human and veterinary medicine as both parasite and vector. Mites also infest plants. .
Risk Evaluation and Mitigation .
Elements to Assure Safe Use .
Strategies required by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Amendments Act of 2007 when a question exists as to whether the benefits of a drug outweigh its risks. These constitute a safety plan with several potential components, including a medication guide, a communication plan, elements to ensure safe use and an implementation system to help guide the prescribers, pharmacists and patients. .
