    The assessment of the prevalence of Subclinical Mastitis (SCM) in dairy farms is essential to evaluate the health status of mammary gland. The aim of the study was to assess the prevalence of SCM in dual purpose livestock systems in Arauca, Colombia, through the analysis the values found on-farm diagnostic California Mastitis Test (CMT) and Electric Conductivity (EC) test. Milk samples were taken from the individual mammary quarters of 481 cows. The cow level prevalence, per affected individual mammary quarters prevalence and the mammary quarter level prevalence were determined according to the values obtained for each test using two methods of analysis. An ANOVA was performed to determine the difference between prevalences. Cohen’s kappa coefficient was used for intertest agreement, and an analysis of sensitivity and specificity. The cow level prevalence was similar between the tests (CMT = 31.4%; EC = 29.7%). The quarter-level prevalence was lower with EC (11.4% vs 14.3%) (p < 0.05). The agreement test between CMT (0) and EC ranged between 0.20 and 0.25. Despite the low agreement found between the tests, they can be useful in determining the health status of the mammary gland in the dual-purpose livestock systems of the Colombian Orinoquia

    (Universidad Cooperativa de Colombia, Facultad de Ciencias Económicas, Administrativas y Contables, Administración de Empresas, Ibagué, 2021-12-01) Rodríguez Barrero, Mario Samuel ; Mosquera Rodas, Jhon Jairo; Galvis Gómez, Alba Lucia; Velandia Tamayo, Milena
    The research proposes an analysis of the problems of informal vendors located between the 6th, 7th and 8th streets in the Municipality of Pereira, capital of the Department of Risaralda, analysing the most significant elements that can be found in this sector and that contribute to the maintenance of the commercial area in conditions of social anomie, seen as a disorder that not only affects the collective, but also the individual. In order to achieve the above, an analytical type of research is carried out, seeking to understand the phenomenon in its true dimension, determining the different elements that compose it and how these contribute to the economic disorder that constantly emerges from the collective of informal vendors and those who support them. Finally, the results of the research are presented in relation to the application of the swot, which allows “enriching the approach to any fact”and understanding the features of this phenomenon and the conditions in which it occurs, increasing its incidence and generating structural disorder in the economy.

    (Universidad Cooperativa de Colombia, Facultad de Ciencias Económicas, Administrativas y Contables, Administración de Empresas, Ibagué, 2022-12-01) Rodríguez Barrero, Mario Samuel ; Buitrago Mejia , Aracelly; Quintero Garcia , Ramiro; Rubio Rodriguez , Gustavo Adolfo
    The purpose of this manuscript is to analyze the importance and usefulness of an associativity model oriented to microenterprises. The problem is addressed from the absence of a model that facilitates joint work. The theoretical construct refers to associativity, competitiveness and the components of associative models. The research is quantitative with a descriptive approach. To collect the information, a validated instrument was applied to 393 companies, 207 from the tourism sector and 186 from the clothing sector. As a result, it was found that 70% of entrepreneurs are willing to associate, the benefits that entrepreneurs expect from being associated were identified, the activities that they are willing to carry out in association with others, the procedures to be incorporated into the associativity model, characteristics related to group size, state support and preference for the associative form. It is concluded that the associativity model is pertinent and necessary for entrepreneurs in the tourism and clothing sector. It is proposed as a future study, the evaluation of associative models that promote collaborative work and the competitiveness of the sectors studied.

    Human migration is an activity that affects society in economic and political aspects and as a social determinant because of its differential impact on individual's health. Objective To describe the situation of health and infectious diseases of vertical transmission risk in migrant pregnant women from an area of the Colombian Caribbean from 2019 to 2021. Methods A descriptive cross-sectional study was carried out on pregnant irregular migrants in the Riohacha and Santa Marta municipalities in Colombia. Hemogram, uranalysis, toxoplasma, FTA-ABS, VDRL, rubella, hepatitis B, HIV (TORCHs), vaginal swab, basal glycemia, and transaminases, among other paraclinical tests, were done on pregnant women. Data was arranged, tabulated, and analyzed in SPSS v.23.0. A descriptive statistical analysis with measures of central tendency and dispersion for quantitative variables, and proportions analysis was done for qualitative variables. Results A total of 555 clinical records were analyzed. Of the infectious agents with a risk of vertical transmission, syphilis was the most frequent with 3.6%. Regarding toxoplasmosis, 2.5% were IgM-positive. 4.2% of the pregnant women had IgG antibodies against Rubella and 2 women showed antibodies against HIV. Conclusions Our results reflect the need for the implementation of educational, prevention, and detection health programs with the aim to decrease the number of prenatal infections in the pregnant migrant population for preventing fatal complications both in mothers and newborns.

    The proper functioning of the health system in a society is key to guaranteeing access to health services for the entire population, especially after the Covid-19 pandemic. In Colombia, the health sector generates 666,612 jobs, its current expenditure corresponds to 6% of GDP and there are 47,383,203 affiliated with the General Social Security System in health -SGSSS-, a figure close to universal coverage. The main problems in the sector are related to access to services, poor care, appointment assignments, authorizations and treatments, among others. These problems generate nonconformities, claims, lawsuits and guardianships, which amounted to 617,071 in recent years. The purpose of the article is to analyze the causes of problems in the health system and present a proposal to improve its efficiency. The methodology corresponds to a mixed approach with a descriptive design, the information collection instrument corresponds to a structured Likert-type survey. The results obtained are contrasted with secondary information and, based on this analysis, the proposed structure is presented as a result, which includes the formation of a Board of Directors, system structure, fiscal audit and a national fund to guarantee the sustainability of the system. It is concluded that one of the solutions to improve the efficiency of the health system is to create a mixed system, with a system of efficient management indicators, improve technology and maintain effective communication.

    The objective of this research is to generate a proposal for educational articulation based on the concepts of collaborative network entrepreneurship based on the concept of entrepreneurship, to propose the structure of a network of school entrepreneurship that facilitates the process of articulation of technical secondary education with the university, generating an integrated model based on the postulates of (Varela, 2001), (Valdés, 2000) and (Schvarstein, 2008). The methodology is of a quantitative descriptive nature, analysing the state of entrepreneurship in 51 official secondary schools in the city of Pereira. The most relevant results were that a significant number of secondary schools do not adequately develop entrepreneurship programmes and articulation with university education and the proposal of a flexible model for the articulation of universities with secondary education. With regard to the conclusions, the process of integration of an entrepreneurship network is presented in order to develop ways of articulation between secondary and higher education, which is recognised as a valid strategy and as a means of overcoming the difficulties encountered.

    (Universidad Cooperativa de Colombia, Facultad de Ciencias Económicas, Administrativas y Contables, Administración de Empresas, Ibagué, 2023-04-20) Rodríguez Barrero, Mario Samuel ; Vera Calderón, José Alejandro; Reinoso Lastra, Juan Fernando
    According to the National Administrative Department of Statistics (DANE), micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) represent 99.5% of the total number of companies in Colombia and generate 80% of private sector employment. In recent years, access to credit has become a vital element for the survival and growth of this group, which currently has significant representation in the economy due to the jobs it provides, its strategic importance for national development, and its growth trend. Based on these premises, the study focuses on analyzing access to credit by MSMEs in the hotel and lodging subsector, taking into account the impact of financing granted by financial institutions to this segment of companies, mainly those that are part of the entrepreneurial ecosystem in the city of Ibagué. Similarly, the level of satisfaction created by the financial subsystem and other sources that grant credit, as well as the areas benefited by such financing, was confronted. It was found that the degree of impact generated by credit on micro and small businesses is 70%, which generates an effect on increasing sales by 64% and increasing clients by 51%. It is recommended to generate greater trust between the financial subsystem and entrepreneurs, manage favorable interest rates, and implement comprehensive policies to support entrepreneurship.
