Afghanistans opium poppy production goes into more than 90% of heroin worldwide. Afghanistan has been the worlds greatest illicit opium producer, ahead of Burma (Myanmar), the "Golden Triangle", and Latin America since 1992, excluding the year 2001. Afghanistan is the main producer of opium in the "Golden Crescent". Opium production in Afghanistan has been on the rise since U.S. occupation started in 2001. Based on UNODC data, opium poppy cultivation was more in each of the growing seasons in the periods between 2004 and 2007 than in any one year during Taliban rule. More land is now used for opium in Afghanistan than is used for coca cultivation in Latin America. In 2007, 93% of the non-pharmaceutical-grade opiates on the world market originated in Afghanistan. This amounts to an export value of about $4 billion, with a quarter being earned by opium farmers and the rest going to district officials, ...
Traumatic amputation is one of the major injuries seen as a result of Operation Iraqi and Enduring Freedom with the majority being single trans-tibial amputations (TTA). TTA experience significant reductions in thigh muscle strength of the amputated limb during the first year after amputation. The residual limb is less active in daily functions of standing and walking, resulting in progressive atrophy of the quadriceps muscles in terms of a decrease in thigh diameter which is estimated at 25% of pre-amputation diameter. An intervention that may be useful in TTA rehabilitation is neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES). The overall objectives of this study is to test two different approaches to prosthetic rehabilitation as potential treatments for improving muscle strength, pain and functional performance of daily activities in military personnel with TTA. Our central hypothesis is that a Nurse Managed NMES rehabilitation program will have greater improvements in muscle strength and pain as ...

For the past 16 years, the American war machine has been acting like a two-tiered sadist in Afghanistan. While facilitating the Kabul governments destruction of the communities it oversees there, our military apparatus has also harmed the U.S. itself by spilling American blood for an unnecessary and futile mission. Granted, most Americans have not literally bled for the war in Afghanistan. Our sacrifice has been merely (merely?) financial. US taxpayers have paid - and will continue paying - for our governments $1 trillion excursion there, an escapade already more expensive than the Marshall Plan to rebuild post-WWII Europe. Not all Americans have been as fortunate as civilian taxpayers, though. 2,400 US soldiers have died and upwards of 17,000 have suffered physical injuries in Afghanistan. Still other troops have returned home physically intact but psychologically scarred, motivating their retreat into a lonely depression.. Suicide has been a tragically ...

Morgan M, Lockwood A, Steinke D, Schleenbaker R, Botts S.. Psychiatr Serv. 2012 Feb 1;63(2):182-5.. OBJECTIVE:. The purpose of this study was to determine if veterans with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) are treated differently pharmacologically than patients with PTSD alone.. METHODS:. A retrospective evaluation of PTSD pharmacotherapy of Operation Enduring Freedom/Operation Iraqi Freedom veterans with PTSD (N=707) was conducted between April 1, 2007, and March 31, 2009. A total of 45 veterans had suffered a mild TBI.. RESULTS:. Compared with the patients with PTSD alone, the patients with PTSD and TBI were more likely to be prescribed an antidepressant (p,.001), a sedative-hypnotic (p,.001), or an antipsychotic (p=.024). The patients with TBI were also significantly more likely to receive psychotropic polypharmacy (p=.001) and to receive higher doses of psychiatric medications (p=.03).. CONCLUSIONS:. The differences in drug therapy found in this study ...
The American military presence in Afghanistan consists of fleets of aircraft, helicopters, armored vehicles, weapons, equipment, troops and facilities. Since 2001, they have generated millions of kilograms of hazardous, toxic and radioactive wastes. The Kabul Press asks the simple question:. "What have the Americans done with all that waste?". The answer is chilling in that virtually all of it appears to have been buried, burned or secretly disposed of into the air, soil, groundwater and surface waters of Afghanistan. While the Americans may begin to withdraw next year, the toxic chemicals they leave behind will continue to pollute for centuries. Any abandoned radioactive waste may stain the Afghan countryside for thousands of years. Afghanistan has been described in the past as the graveyard of foreign armies. Today, Afghanistan has a different title:. "Afghanistan is the toxic dumping ground for foreign ...
Grant Number: n/a. The Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008 (the 9/11 GI Bill) provides over 2 million veterans who served in Afghanistan (Operation Enduring Freedom, OEF) and Iraq (Operation Iraqi Freedom, OIF) with the opportunity to attend college full time. While the 9/11 GI Bill gives OEF/OIF veterans access to educational benefits, many veterans will return from deployment with physical and psychological challenges that may impede their academic success. In particular, research suggests OEF/OIF veterans have high rates of alcohol use and psychiatric disorders that could potentially interfere with class attendance, decrease grades and tests scores, and/or lead to withdrawal/dropout from college. Further, the transition from the battlefield to the classroom can be filled with unique stressors that OEF/OIF veterans may not be prepared to handle. Despite the potentially negative effects of alcohol use and psychiatric symptoms on academic success among OEF/OIF veterans ...
President Obama always said the War in Afghanistan was the right war. To put the Taliban and al Qaeda on the defensive. And take away their safe sanctuary. While the Iraq War was just a distraction. But the Left didnt like the War in Afghanistan any more than they liked the Iraq War. So to appeal to his liberal base in an election year the president announced a timeline for the withdrawal of US forces. Even though it is likely that the Taliban and al Qaeda will return once the international forces leave. Raising concerns about the future of womens rights to study and work. While in America the Left warns women that if Republicans get into office theyll have to suffer the horrors of paying for birth control. And enduring back-alley abortions.. At least if the Afghan women dont have the support of the American Left they have a safe sanctuary in India. Where free market capitalism still can flourish. As do womens rights. India may not be perfect. For no country ...

The purpose of the present study was to investigate the neuropsychological functioning of Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) combat veterans with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). More specifically, this study sought to examine whether the neuropsychological functioning of OEF/OIF combat veterans with PTSD and a comorbid mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) significantly differed from those with uncomplicated PTSD across multiple tests of cognitive functioning. To accomplish this objective, the medical records and neuropsychological assessment data of 59 OEF/OIF combat veterans with PTSD and 66 OEF/OIF combat veterans with PTSD and comorbid mild TBI were examined and included for statistical analysis. Results of this study yielded three main conclusions. First, neither group of OEF/OIF combat veterans demonstrated notable performance deficits across the battery of cognitive tests examined in this study. Second the neuropsychological functioning of OEF/OIF combat ...

New York) - Afghan President Hamid Karzai should take urgent action to fight child marriage and domestic violence or risk further harm to development and public health in Afghanistan, Human Rights Watch said today in a letter to the president.. In the 15-page briefing paper, "Afghanistan: Ending Child Marriage and Domestic Violence," Human Rights Watch highlights the health and economic consequences of marriage under age 18 and violence against women and girls. Karzai, who is barred by term limits from running in the April 2014 presidential election, should make full enforcement of the 2009 Law on the Elimination of Violence Against Women (the EVAW Law) a priority for his last year in office.. "President Karzais signing of the violence against women law in 2009 ushered in vital protections against child marriage and domestic violence," said Liesl Gerntholtz, womens rights director at Human Rights Watch. "By ensuring the law is enforced, Karzai would leave a ...
Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) is endemic in Pakistan and Afghanistan; serotypes O, A and Asia-1 of the virus are responsible for the outbreaks in these countries with FMDV type O usually being the most common. In the present study, the nucleotide sequences encoding the FMDV capsid protein VP1 from virus samples were determined. Phylogenetic analysis of the serotype O FMD viruses circulating in Pakistan and Afghanistan between 1997 and 2009 revealed the presence of at least three different lineages within the ME-SA (Middle East South Asia) topotype. The three lineages detected in this study are Pak98, Iran2001 and PanAsia. The PanAsia lineage is currently dominant in the area and is evolving with time as revealed by the appearance of distinct variants e.g. PanAsia-II and a new variant designated here as PanAsia-III. The rates of evolution of the O-PanAsia-II and III sublineages prevalent in the region were found to be 6.65×10−3 (95% CI=5.49-7.80×10−3) and 7.80×10−3 (95% ...
Text of report by privately-owned Kyrgyz news agency 24.kg website Bishkek, 24 June: Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan and Pakistan begin working on a joint project on the construction of substations and power lines. The Kyrgyz parliamentary committee on fuel-energy complex and mining considered the issue of finalizing the draft of an intergovernmental agreement today. The Kyrgyz deputy industry, energy and fuel resources minister, Akylbek Tyumenbayev, told MPs that the document would be discussed on 24 July 2008 in Islamabad where representatives of the four countries would meet. The project envisages the construction of a substation Datka and also a 430-km power line Datka-Khujand, which will make the supply of electricity from Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan to Afghanistan and Pakistan possible. Akylbek Tyumenbayev stressed that the project had been prepared as early as ten years ago. He said that the total construction costs amounted to almost 120m dollars and the export of ...
The following is a posting from The Jacksonian Party.. The following is a position paper of The Jacksonian Party.. Of all the things that cannot be done, Nation Building is the one that cannot be done from the outside. To have a Nation one must have a people committed to it, willing to stand up for their neighbors to live under the rule of law and be able to expect some modicum of protection from their government. When reading Sen. Liebermans piece in The Wall Street Journal of 06 FEB 2009, I come away agreeing with much and disagreeing with some areas. While I have disagreed with Sen. Lieberman on many social issues, on military and foreign affairs I find more than majority agreement with his positions.. First and foremost is a strategic coherence on the fighting in the Afghanistan theater, as it is more than just Afghanistan a full and complete approach that includes Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, China, Pakistan, India, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan is essential. I have looked at ...

Many servicemembers supporting Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) have engaged in intense and prolonged combat, which research has shown to be strongly associated with the risk of developing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). GAO, in response to the Ronald W. Reagan National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2005, (1) describes DODs extended health care benefit and VAs health care services for OEF/OIF veterans; (2) analyzes DOD data to determine the number of OEF/OIF servicemembers who may be at risk for PTSD and the number referred for further mental health evaluations; and (3) examines whether DOD can provide reasonable assurance that OEF/OIF servicemembers who need further mental health evaluations receive referrals.DOD offers an extended health care benefit to some OEF/OIF veterans for a specified time period, and VA offers health care services that include specialized PTSD services.
Dr. Dennis Donovan, Director of the University of Washington Alcohol and Drug Abuse Institute (ADAI), was appointed to and serves as one of 17 members of a National Academy of Sciences Institute of Medicine (IOM) Committee to Evaluate the Department of Veterans Affairs Mental Health Services. The committee will comprehensively assess the quality, capacity, and access to mental health care services, including treatment of substance use disorders, for veterans who served in the Armed Forces in Operation Enduring Freedom, Operation Iraqi Freedom, or Operation New Dawn (OEF/OIF/OND). The IOM committee will assess the spectrum of mental health services available across the entire US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) nationally. The committee will determine the extent to which veterans are afforded choices with respect to modes of treatment and will determine whether, and the extent to which, Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans are being offered a full range of necessary mental health services in ...
In Western Asia, Afghan refugees constitute one of the main vulnerable populations with drug and HIV treatment needs. However, there is not considerable provision of drug and HIV services for this group. The study aimed to describe the provision of drug treatment and harm reduction services for Afghan refugees in Iran, the most populous Persian Gulf country. With the collaboration of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in Tehran, Iran, a project was conducted by Rebirth Society in 2010 to provide free drug and HIV treatment and harm reduction services. Two drop-in-centers were allocated to the project. Six outreach peer members and four staff members were trained. Data were collected by a checklist and analyzed by SPSS version 18. Eighty-one Afghan refugees were admitted. All of them were drug users and needed HIV services. Drug treatments such as methadone maintenance treatment and therapeutic community services were provided. In addition, ...

Now, I am by no means a professional baseball scout, but in my opinion they threw much too hard to be future Yankees. The same instant I decided to stop I had also decided one other thing - I was going to make these kids not hate me, or Id die trying. (When you say things like that while deployed in Afghanistan, its not just rhetoric.). On our way back to my combat outpost, the kids were no longer at recess and were back inside the walled compound that housed the school. I went to the gate and asked for the headmaster.. INSIDE THE SCHOOL. He immediately came out to meet me and invited me inside. I dropped my body armor and helmet before entering and wrestled for a split second with the thought of not taking my weapon. After a quick reality check I realized that the Afghan version of Pedro Martinez could very possibly be on the other side of this wall, and that having M4 with me was prudent, although I must admit I still felt outgunned.. The meeting inside went very well, ...
Delivering her annual report to members of the ICC in The Hague on Monday, chief prosecutor Fatou Bensouda said she would decide "imminently" whether to ask judges for permission to launch a full-blown investigation as to whether US military forces and CIA operatives may have committed war crimes in Afghanistan through the "cruel or violent" interrogation of detainees.. Bensouda said the Taliban, Afghan government forces and U.S. troops as well as the CIA all appeared to have carried out war crimes. "At least 61 detainees" were subjected to "torture (and) cruel treatment" by US armed forces in Afghanistan between May 1, 2003, and December 31, 2014, according to ICC initial findings.. Since the establishment of the ICC, the war crimes court has been accused of only targeting African leaders.. Last month, Gambia has become the third country after South Africa and Burundi to leave the ICC. The West African nation notified the UN on Monday that its withdrawal ...

To be fair, thanks to the Geneva conventions, most modern militaries accept responsibility for tending to the wounds of the enemies they capture. Thats caused some grumbling among some coalition troops in the war on terror, as when British soldiers at one Afghanistan base last year said they were "appalled" to hear of injured comrades waking up in the infirmary next to the Taliban enemies who injured them. Its standard practice, though, a NATO spokesman in Kabul told the Guardian: "ISAF [NATO] forces also provide treatment to any case caught up in this conflict, including our opponents, in line with our own obligation to respect the rules of armed conflict.". But thats still a far cry from the Red Cross position: Providing knowledge of considerable tactical value to enemy combatants before theyve gone into combat. You may not agree with the unnamed Afghan magistrate who told the Guardian that Taliban fighters "not deserve to be treated like humans." But like them or hate ...
Many had been exposed to a sulfur fire in Mosul, Iraq. They also had been exposed to burn pits - the military disposes of trash at bases in Iraq and Afghanistan by burning as much as 240 tons of it a day in open pits. All of them came through chest X-rays and CT scans with clean bills of health. The soldiers volunteered for a procedure to obtain lung cell samples, and when Miller examined the biopsies, 50 of 54 showed constrictive bronchiolitis - a rare lung disease that closes the tiniest airways ...
Pets for Vets is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in the United States dedicated to providing a second chance to shelter dogs by rescuing, training, and matching them with American veterans who need a companion pet. Pets for Vets was founded on October 21, 2009, by animal behaviorist and trainer, Clarissa Black, who was looking for a way to help American veterans who were suffering from combat stress and other emotional issues related to their service. Many Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom veterans suffer physical and emotional injuries making it difficult to transition back to civilian life. Pets for Vets helps military veterans reclaim normalcy in their lives through companion dogs. Each companion dog is rescued in connection with local animal rescue groups. They are then given basic obedience training and any additional training that will help them assimilate into their new lives and then finally placed in their "forever" home. Estimates that anywhere from one in ...
In Pakistan, 28 polio cases were confirmed with onset in 2005 (Table), compared with 53 cases in 2004. Twenty-seven of the 2005 cases were WPV1, and one was WPV3 (from Quetta district in the Balochistan province). For the first time, no high-season (August--October) transmission peak occurred; 13 cases were reported during this period in 2005. In 2006, as of May 31, four cases (three WPV1 and one WPV3) had been confirmed: one WPV1 case from Killa Abdullah in the Balochistan province (February 23 onset of paralysis); one WPV1 case from Dera Ismail Khan district in NWFP (February 23 onset of paralysis); one WPV1 case from Karachi in the Sindh province (April 28 onset of paralysis); and one WPV3 case from Jafarabad in the Balochistan province (May 15 onset of paralysis). In Afghanistan, nine polio cases with onset in 2005 were confirmed (five WPV1 and four WPV3), all from three provinces in the southern region: three WPV1 and two WPV3 cases from Helmand, two WPV3 cases from Oruzgan, and two ...
Many service members returning from Iraq and Afghanistan have difficulties adjusting back to civilian life. Research shows that symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are particularly high in returning Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF)/Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) veterans, and that combat-related nightmares and sleep disturbances are common in veterans with PTSD. This is of concern because people with these problems will often use unhealthy ways of coping. Although combat-related nightmares and difficulty sleeping are highly distressing, there are helpful treatments that do not involve taking medication. One of these treatments teaches specific skills to help people improve their sleep habits and to change their nightmares so that they are less upsetting. This treatment can be very helpful and research shows that people experience decreases in the frequency and severity of their nightmares, decreased symptoms of depression and PTSD, and improved sleep quality and quantity after ...
For two millennia, tourniquets were the most controversial topic in first aid,6,7 but now they are not-they are an essential first aid tool on the battlefield. This change from controversial to essential was an RMMA, a new beginning for an old device.. As recently as the war in Vietnam, tourniquet use was sporadic as soldiers were trained that tourniquets were a "last resort" while some military physicians strongly advocated for their use. Neither point nor counterpoint had adequate data to substantiate its claim and published literature largely relied on opinion.. When US forces went to war in Afghanistan in 2001, with the exceptions of a few Special Operation Forces (SOF) units, they went without tactical tourniquets and were trained not to use tourniquets. In 2001, at the onset of hostilities in Afghanistan, none of the other military services had service-wide tourniquet policies or programs in place. As the United States and her coalition partners suffered losses in ...

There is an established link between posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and criminal activity. Of every 100 veterans who served during Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF)/Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF), 11 to 20 percent are diagnosed with PTSD each year. Previous research has documented that veterans are incarcerated at higher percentages compared to nonveteran inmates, though little published research examines incidence of PTSD relative to violent crime. Using Agnews general strain theory as the foundation, the purpose of this correlational study was to examine combat service, PTSD, and specific violent crimes as defined by the FBI as murder and nonnegligent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assaults; while controlling for branch of service, age, and sex. The sample consisted of 46 OEF/OIF inmates (federal and state) 9 of whom were convicted of a violent crime. Results from the multiple logistic regression analysis showed that combat service, PTSD, sex, and branch of service were not
The purpose of this study was to compare the neuropsychological outcome from blast-related versus non-blast related mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI). Participants were 56 U.S. military service members who sustained an MTBI, divided into two groups based on mechanism of injury: (a) non-blast related (Non-blast; n = 21), and (b) blast plus secondary blunt trauma (Blast Plus; n = 35). All participants had sustained their injury in theatre whilst deployed during Operation Iraqi Freedom or Operation Enduring Freedom.
SEATTLE-August 25, 2009-Researchers working with Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans have found that post-traumatic stress disorder, the current most common mental disorder among veterans returning from service in the Middle East, is associated with an increased risk for thoughts of suicide.. Results of the study indicated that veterans who screened positive for PTSD were four times more likely to report suicide-related thoughts relative to veterans without the disorder. The research, published in the Journal of Traumatic Stress, establishes PTSD as a risk factor for thoughts of suicide in Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans. This holds true, even after accounting for other psychiatric disorder diagnoses, such as substance abuse and depression. Veterans who screened positive for PTSD and two or more comorbid mental disorders were significantly more likely to experience thoughts of suicide relative to veterans with PTSD alone.. As many as forty-six percent of veterans in the ...

Earlier this week it was reported that Nigeria has interrupted transmission of wild poliovirus and is no longer a polio endemic country. Now, in some belated news from the polio eradication front, the Global Commission for the Certification of Poliomyelitis Eradication (GCC) on Sep. 20 concluded that wild poliovirus type 2 (WPV2) has been eradicated worldwide. The last detected WPV2 dates to 1999, from Aligarh, northern India.. There are three wild poliovirus serotypes: WPV1, WPV2 and WPV3. WPV3 has not been detected globally since November 2012 (in Nigeria); the only remaining endemic WPV1 strains are now restricted to the two remaining endemic countries, Pakistan and Afghanistan.. This declaration will support the final decision on whether the switch from trivalent to bivalent oral polio vaccine will be made as scheduled in April 2016, which will be decided by the Strategic Advisory Group of Experts on immunization next month.. The Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) says oral polio ...
Weve described a new disease called Iraq-Afghanistan War lung injury (IAW-LI), among soldiers deployed to these countries as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Freedom, and Operation New Dawn" said Anthony Szema, MD, who will co-chair with Dr. Rose. "Not only do soldiers deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan suffer serious respiratory problems at a rate seven times that of soldiers deployed elsewhere, but the respiratory issues they present with show a unique pattern of fixed obstruction in half of cases, while most of the rest are clinically-reversible new-onset asthma, in addition to the rare interstitial lung disease called nonspecific interstitial pneumonitis associated with inhalation of titanium and iron ...
Project Background: Veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan are smoking at high rates and are at elevated risk for the development of smoking related illness. Intensive speciality clinic-based tobacco cessation programs have high efficacy, are more cost effective than less intensive approaches, and are employed by most VA medical centers. These programs, however, are infrequently attended by veterans, limiting the impact on prevalence, disease burden, and economic costs of smoking. An internet-based smoking cessation intervention could be an effective, low-cost method to implement evidence based smoking cessation principles. The internet could significantly increase the impact of smoking cessation efforts over current approaches by avoiding barriers that limit utilization of existing clinic-based services.. Project Objectives: The goal of the study is to evaluate the impact of an internet-based intervention in comparison to standard VA speciality clinic-based care in promoting smoking ...
The most frequent injury sustained by U.S. service members deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan is mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), or concussion, by far most often caused by blast waves from improvised explosive devices or other explosive ordnance. TBI from all causes gives rise to chronic neuroendocrine disorders with an estimated prevalence of 25-50%. The current study expands upon our earlier finding that chronic pituitary gland dysfunction occurs with a similarly high frequency after blast-related concussions. We measured circulating hormone levels and accessed demographic and testing data from two groups of male veterans with hazardous duty experience in Iraq or Afghanistan. Veterans in the mTBI group had experienced one or more blast-related concussions. Members of the deployment control (DC) group encountered similar deployment conditions but had no history of blast-related mTBI. Twelve of 39 (31%) of the mTBI participants and three of 20 (15%) veterans in the DC group ...
This study examined the performance of veterans and active duty personnel who served in Operation Enduring Freedom and/or Operation Iraqi Freedom (OEF/OIF) on a basic associative learning task. Eighty-eight individuals participated in this study. All received a comprehensive clinical evaluation to determine the presence and severity of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI). The eyeblink conditioning task was composed of randomly intermixed delay and trace conditioned stimulus (CS) and unconditioned stimulus (US) pairs (acquisition) followed by a series of CS only trials (extinction). Results revealed that those with a clinical diagnosis of PTSD or a diagnosis of PTSD with comorbid mTBI acquired delay and trace conditioned responses (CRs) to levels and at rates similar to a deployed control group, thus suggesting intact basic associative learning. Differential extinction impairment was observed in the two clinical groups. Acquisition of CRs for both delay and trace
Overall, the reasons for medical evacuation were comparable between the military and nonmilitary personnel, although we noted several important differences. The observation that military personnel were more likely to be evacuated with war-related injuries, and nonmilitary members with non-war-related injuries, was not unexpected. What was surprising was that the principal contributor to this disparity was the higher evacuation rates among military personnel than among nonmilitary personnel because of psychiatric diagnoses (9.1% v. 2.1%). This effect was amplified by the fact that military personnel were less likely than nonmilitary members to return to duty after evacuation because of a psychiatric condition.. The other major finding was the higher toll that circulatory conditions and noncardiac chest or abdominal pain exacted on nonmilitary members. In contrast, military personnel evacuated with non-war-related injuries were more likely to have a diagnosis related to musculoskeletal/ spine ...

The curators self-professed Rosetta Stone to unraveling some of the exhibitions major ideas and conceptual gestures is affectionately referred to as the "brain"-a small gallery located in the center of the Fridericianum, which condenses Christov-Bakargievs chief "lines of thought" and captures the concurrent ambitions and modesty of the exhibition in a glassed-in microclimate. The gallery presents myriad objects from antiquity to the present, of both large and small scale (although mostly small). Their selection was inspired by the societal fascination with objects and a desire to reveal their memories and "troubled histories." Some of the most notable and fascinating inclusions are the so-called Bactrian princesses, composite stone figures made in northern Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, and Turkmenistan between 3000 and 2000 BC and a collection of Italian painter Giorgio Morandis vases, the subject of his creamy still-life paintings of the 1950s. The curator includes what she describes as ...
Wheeled mobility: factors influencing mobility and assistive technology in veterans and servicemembers with major traumatic limb loss from Vietnam war and OIF/OEF conflicts.
After almost 30 years of service in the U.S. Air Force, retired Colonel Laura Talbot, PhD, EdD, RN, continues to serve her country in a research lab at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC).. Dr. Talbot is a professor in the Department of Neurology in the College of Medicine at UTHSC, and has dedicated her research to finding ways to help active-duty military live healthier, pain-free lives.. The TriService Nursing Research Program has helped her do that through several major grants totaling approximately $1.7 million.. Her research has ranged from testing electromyostimulation and strength walking as a treatment for knee injuries among service members, to improving strength and function for amputees wounded in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom, to developing lifestyle activities to promote fitness among those serving in the National Guard.. The latest grant totals $622,030 over a three-year period that began in 2015. It will allow Dr. Talbot to research ...
The Global Polio Eradication Initiative began in 1988; by 2006, indigenous transmission of wild poliovirus (WPV) type 2 infection had been interrupted globally, and indigenous transmission of type 1 and 3 (WPV1 and WPV3) infection had been interrupted in all but four countries worldwide (Afghanistan, India, Nigeria, and Pakistan) (1). Despite this success in controlling indigenous transmission, during 2002--2006, 20 previously polio-free countries* in Africa and Asia had importations of WPV1 originating from Nigeria (2--4), and three polio-free countries in Africa had WPV1 importations originating from India (1). By the end of 2007, control efforts in all countries except Angola, Chad, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Niger, and Sudan had stopped transmission of WPV1 caused by these importations. However, during 2008--2009, multiple importations of WPV from countries with ongoing transmission resumed in Africa. This report describes 32 WPV importations into 15 African countries, ...
Since the new US-Iraqi offensive was launched in February 2007, anti-government forces have been put on the defensive in their former insurgent strong-hold of Anbar, Britains top general in Iraq said (March 2007). [39] The insurgency "didnt do too well in Anbar . . . Their claims have failed to come to fruition," he said, referring to the declaration by Islamic radicals that they had established a "caliphate", or successorship, encompassing much of western Iraq. Lt Gen Lamb said that US and Iraqi forces were recruiting hundreds of police for the first time in towns in the Anbar region and that the forces were working together in shared combat outposts. While conceding that car bomb attacks In Baghdad and a surge of violence in neighboring Diyala had to be addressed, he said that US and Iraqi planners were learning to reduce the threat, establishing an outer cordon around the city as well as barriers, or "point defense" protection around key targets inside. The US military has reported cases in ...
Nearly ten years ago, when Bin Laden and his supporters launched the attacks of September 11th, the U.S. and Britain responded with Operation Enduring Freedom in October, 2001 -- a campaign which continues to this day with nearly 140,000 coalition troops in Afghanistan. It remains to be seen if the recent killing of Osama Bin Laden will have any immediate effect on the situation in Afghanistan, but security has been tightened at coalition bases throughout the region. The Taliban has promised a new Spring offensive soon, as the weather warms and Afghanistans "fighting season" gets underway. Insurgent attacks across the country, large and small, continue at the rate of about 30 per day, an increase from last year. NATO leaders have endorsed a target withdrawal date of 2014, with a handover to Afghan forces beginning next year. Gathered here are images from the ongoing conflict over the past month, part of an ongoing monthly ...
The purpose of this DNP project was to conduct a survey of persons with a mental illness to ascertain their experiences, good or bad, when seeking health care services. Persons with a mental health diagnosis have significantly higher rates of chronic diseases including hypertension, cardiovascular issues, diabetes, obesity, asthma, cancer, respiratory illnesses, and gastrointestinal problems, when compared to the general population without a mental health diagnosis. In addition, persons with a mental health diagnosis have higher rates of tobacco and alcohol abuse. Persons with a mental health diagnosis have a significantly higher premature mortality rate when compared to the general population without a mental health diagnosis. This gap is widening and needs to be mitigated to prevent further disparity in healthcare outcomes in this population. A needs assessment, designed as a quality improvement project, was been chosen to guide the methodology of the DNP project aims that include: 1) assess ...
Yet this not the general image in the region, American military adventurism in the past decades instigated by the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan has left indelible scars of pain, suffering and destruction in most countries of the region. In addition to Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq that still suffer from violence, terror and insecurity now hallmarked by the fabrication of DAESH,Palestine Libya,Somalia,Yemen, Egypt and many more have faced the exodus of Christians and minorities who have faced persecution at the hands of terrorists who are mandated to smear the image of Islam and sow discord and insecurity in the region.In an artcle entitled "Why Millions will Mourn this Christmas " http://www.ronpaulinstitute.org/archives/featured-articles/2014/december/23/why-millions-of-christians-will-mourn-this-christmas/, Evan Mcadams best described the predicament :"It will be a miserable Christmas for the overseas victims of US interventions this year.

NEARING POLIO ERADICATION The Global Polio Eradication Initiative was launched in 1988 and might have achieved its goal years ago were there not three stubborn pockets of persisting wild poliovirus (WPV) activity. The surveillance data for January 2011 through March 2013 are available (MMWR 2013; 62: 335). The number of WPV cases globally decreased from 650 in 2011 to 223 in 2012. Circulation of WPV continues in only 3 countries: Afghanistan, Nigeria and Pakistan, but there have been imported cases from those countries to previously poliofree countries: 309 imported cases in 12 countries in 2011 and, quite remarkably, only 6 imported cases in 2 countries in 2012. The end of WPV on earth is not an unreachable goal in spite of the attacks on health care workers in Nigeria and Pakistan in recent months. Security measures have been bolstered to protect the persons distributing polio vaccine and the eradication initiative goes forth. In a subsequent MMWR (June 14, 2013) we learned of new cases of ...
Irish Aid is the Governments overseas assistance programme. It is managed by the Development Cooperation Division of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.. Irish Aid Polio funding has comprised:. €17 million to the World Health Organization Global Polio Eradication Initiative since 2006;. Of this, €12 million was provided during the period 2006-08.

The WHO announced on 25 September 2015 that polio is no longer endemic in Nigeria, leaving only two countries in the world where polio remains: Afghanistan and Pakistan. For the first time in history, the entire African continent has marked one year without reporting a single child paralyzed by the wild poliovirus.. The Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) is a public-private partnership led by national governments and spearheaded by the ...
The U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 1017, the Chiropractic Care Available to All Veterans Act, tonight, putting Americas veterans one step closer to gaining access to chiropractic care at all major Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) medical centers. The bill was approved 365:6. H.R. 1017 requires the VA to have doctors of chiropractic on staff at no fewer than 75 major VA medical centers before the end of 2011 and for all major VA medical centers to have a doctor of chiropractic on staff before the end of 2013. There are nearly 160 VA treatment facilities nationwide. Currently, the VA provides chiropractic care at 32 treatment facilities across the country. The bill comes after a recent VA report, Analysis of VA Health Care Utilization Among Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) Veterans, from Feb 2010 which cites diseases of Musculoskeletal System/Connective System, such as back pain, as the number one ailment of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans ...

This would reverse the current policy that military women can have abortions at these hospitals except for the instances of rape or incest. Slaughter spoke with Diana Reese of the Washington Post. Thats "absolutely wrong," Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-N.Y.) told me in a phone interview Monday. She introduced legislation Thursday that would change that. The Military Access to Reproductive Care and Health (MARCH) for Military Women Act would lift the ban on abortions at military hospitals for service women.. Rep. Louise Slaughter supports lifting the ban on privately funded abortions for service women at overseas military hospitals.. No taxpayer dollars would be spent, she assured me. The service woman would be required to pay for the abortion. And the "conscience clause" would remain in effect so that any military physician who did not want to perform the procedure would not be required to do so.. If passed by Congress, MARCH would lift the statutory ban that dates back to a time when men believed ...

Nigeria is one of the three remaining polio endemic countries on the planet with Afghanistan and Pakistan being the others. The African nation reported 53 wild poliovirus-1 cases in 2013, while so far in 2014, only 5 cases have been reported.. However, what Nigeria is experiencing is an increase in circulating vaccine-derived poliovirus type 2 (cVDPV2), recording four cases during the past week and 18 cases total in 2014. Three of the cases were reported from Kano and one from Borno. The most recent cVDPV2 case had onset of paralysis on 22 June, from Kano. The Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) says Vaccine-derived polioviruses (VDPVs) are rare strains of poliovirus that have genetically mutated from the strain contained in the oral polio vaccine.. ...

Several cross-sectional studies have demonstrated the relevance of DNA methylation of the glucocorticoid receptor exon 1F region (GR-1F) for trauma-related psychopathology. We conducted a longitudinal study to examine GR-1F methylation changes over time in relation to trauma exposure and the development of post-deployment psychopathology. GR-1F methylation (52 loci) was quantified ... read more using pyrosequencing in whole blood of 92 military men 1 month before and 6 months after a 4-month deployment period to Afghanistan. GR-1F methylation overall (mean methylation and the number of methylated loci) and functional methylation (methylation at loci associated with GR exon 1F expression) measures were examined. We first investigated the effect of exposure to potentially traumatic events during deployment on these measures. Subsequently, changes in GR-1F methylation were related to changes in mental health problems (total Symptom Checklist-90 score) and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) ...
Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) conduct operational, peacekeeping or humanitarian missions. A key-support element, CAF medical personnel must be ready to triage and manage mass casualty incidents, working together to save lives. In order to maintain clinical competency and be ready to deploy on operations, medical personnel take part in training programs such as the Advanced Military Trauma Resuscitation Program (AMTRP), a five-day program that targets medical officers, physician assistants, nursing officers and medical technicians. AMTRP was originally conceived to provide pre-deployment training for medical personnel going to Afghanistan where, for the first time in decades, they were treating high volumes of severe trauma. The training is conducted by both Canadian Forces instructors and civilian guest speakers, and includes a mix of didactic content, skills labs and hi-fidelity simulation scenarios. The program offers a unique opportunity to conduct multi-disciplinary team training with an ...
Preparing to give a talk to the Stop the War coalition in the UK, Ive reflected on 15 years of war. I spent the first five years in the military and most of the time since then working to transform our militaristic society with Iraq Veterans Against the War. These are my reflections from the decade and a half Global War on Terror. 2001: I joined the Army and through basic training I learned the violence of war is made possible in part by demonizing and dehumanizing the people on the other end of US military actions and by desensitizing warfighters to the human cost of war. 2002: I saw that the Global War on Terror has many fronts. Drill Sergeants told us to prepare for war, I expected to deploy to Afghanistan. Instead I was deployed to Kuwait, and a year before the invasion of Iraq we were holding training exercises on the border in the same location we would cross in the invasion. Congress approved the creation of the Department of Homeland Security, solidifying the sense that we are in a ...
Veterans of the Iraqi and Afghanistan conflicts have frequently returned with injuries such as mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). More recently, concern has been raised about the large number of returning soldiers who are diagnosed with both. Literature exists on the neuropsychological factors associated with either alone, however far less research has explored the effects when combined (PTSD+mTBI). With a sample of 206 OEF/OIF veterans, the current study employed neuropsychological and psychological measures to determine whether participants with PTSD+mTBI have poorer cognitive and psychological outcomes than participants with PTSD-o, mTBI-o, or veteran controls (VC), when groups are matched on IQ, education, and age. The PTSD+mTBI and mTBI-o groups exhibited very similar neuropsychology profiles, and both PTSD+mTBI and mTBI-o performed significantly (α=.01) worse than VC on executive functioning and processing speed measures. There were no ...
More than 9 million eligible military service members, retirees and their families will have 24/7 access to registered nurses and care coordination services. Washington (Oct. 10, 2017) - Optum, the health services company of UnitedHealth Group (NYSE: UNH), will operate the Military Health Systems (MHS) worldwide Nurse Advice Line, serving more than 9 million military service members, retirees and their families.. Currently, nurse advice line services are provided to eligible military health system beneficiaries in the United States and Eurasia. The new Global Nurse Advice Line combines these two services and adds coverage for those in the Pacific Region and Latin America. Additional enhancements to the nurse advice line will include offering communications channels other than the telephone, such as web-chat and video teleconferencing, giving beneficiaries access to their self-care instructions, and allowing users to speak with a primary care provider after nurse triage, to name just a ...
A bill introduced in Congress would allow Department of Veterans Affairs doctors to recommend medical marijuana for their patients.. The Veterans Equal Access Act. Introduced Thursday by Reps. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) and Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.) with 10 bipartisan cosponsors, would lift a ban on VA doctors giving opinions or recommendations about medical marijuana to veterans who live in states where medical marijuana is permitted. "Post traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury are just as damaging and harmful as any injuries that are visible from the outside," Blumenauer said. "Sometimes even more so because of the devastating effect they can have on a veterans family. We should be allowing these wounded warriors access to the medicine that will help them survive and thrive, including medical marijuana, not treating them like criminals and forcing them into the shadows. Its shameful.". Nearly 30 percent of veterans who served in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars suffer from PTSD and ...
Mothers at a rally against gun violence, Philadelphia 2016. PA Images. All rights reserved.Somewhere at the intersection of gender and violence in the United States falls gun violence. Five women are killed with guns every day in the US, according to a 2014 Center for American Progress report. Between 2001 and 2012 more than 6,400 women were killed by intimate partners using guns - more than the total number of US troops killed during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars combined. Furthermore, women in the US are 11 times more likely to die this way than women in other high-income countries.. These staggering statistics might take your breath away, but each has its own story - of domestic violence, a mass shooting, homicide on the street corner, or suicide. The whole world hears about the biggest mass shootings - Aurora, Charleston, Newtown, and Orlando. But the majority of gun violence happens on this daily basis, barely even making the local nightly news. The 2017 Nobel Womens Initiative ...

Russia and NATO focus on different topics of the NRC meeting. "The central theme at the meeting will be the decisions of the Alliances July 8-9 summit in Warsaw on the further NATO military build-up on the "eastern flank" of the Alliance and their impact on European security," Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said earlier, adding that other topics would include the settlement in Ukraine, the situation in Afghanistan and regional terrorist threats.. The Russian side wants to hear the alliance explain its decision to deploy four NATO battalions in Poland and the Baltic States, numbering 1,000 people each, as well as "advanced military presence" in the Black Sea region on the base of established multinational brigade in Romania. In addition, the talks will touch upon increasing activity of the alliance at the sea and air borders of Russia.. "During the consideration of other issues related to military activity, the Russian side intends to initiate the discussion on the ...
Iran (Persian: ايران) is a large country between the Middle East and Central Asia, between the Gulf of Oman, the Persian Gulf, and the Caspian Sea. It is bordered by Iraq to the west, Turkey, Azerbaijans Naxcivan enclave, Armenia, and Azerbaijan to the northwest, Turkmenistan to the northeast, Afghanistan and Pakistan to the southeast. ==Understand== Known as Persia until 1935, Iran became an Islamic republic in 1979 after the ruling Shah was forced into exile. Conservative clerical forces subsequently crushed Westernisation and also any liberal/left-wing influences. Iranian student protesters seized the US Embassy in Tehran on 4 November 1979 and held it until 20 January 1981. From 1980 to 1988, Iran fought a bloody, indecisive war with Iraq over disputed territory. Key current issues affecting the country include the pace of accepting outside modernising influences and reconciliation between clerical control of the regime and popular government participation and widespread demands for ...

by Amanda Conschafter, Blog Editor. Far more than an occasional nuisance, headaches interfere with countless Americans daily lives - and cost the country $31 billion annually. Yet the National Institutes of Health funding for headache disorders research pales in comparison to funding for less widespread conditions. This apparent discrepancy was central among the concerns expressed by the physician and patient advocates convening today for Alliance for Headache Disorders Advocacys seventh annual Headache on the Hill in Washington, DC.. The groups message to Congress focuses on the toll - financial, physical and emotional - that headaches exact on Americans. Increasingly prevalent, headaches now affect one in six migraine sufferers for at least four hours per day, 15 days a month. Cluster headaches can be severe to the point of provoking suicidal thoughts. And, in recent years, veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts who suffer concussions have developed into a new subset of headache ...
