Novel endotheliotropic herpesviruses fatal for Asian and African elephants. (1/2725)

A highly fatal hemorrhagic disease has been identified in 10 young Asian and African elephants at North American zoos. In the affected animals there was ultrastructural evidence for herpesvirus-like particles in endothelial cells of the heart, liver, and tongue. Consensus primer polymerase chain reaction combined with sequencing yielded molecular evidence that confirmed the presence of two novel but related herpesviruses associated with the disease, one in Asian elephants and another in African elephants. Otherwise healthy African elephants with external herpetic lesions yielded herpesvirus sequences identical to that found in Asian elephants with endothelial disease. This finding suggests that the Asian elephant deaths were caused by cross-species infection with a herpesvirus that is naturally latent in, but normally not lethal to, African elephants. A reciprocal relationship may exist for the African elephant disease.  (+info)

Obstetric and neonatal outcome following chronic hypertension in pregnancy among different ethnic groups. (3/2725)

We retrospectively studied pre-eclampsia rate and obstetric outcome in a cohort of 436 pregnancies amongst 318 women of different ethnic backgrounds attending an antenatal hypertension clinic from 1980-1997, identifying 152 women (213 pregnancies) with chronic essential hypertension. The ethnic breakdown was: White, 64 (30.0%) pregnancies in 48 (31.5%) women; Black/Afro-Caribbean, 79 (37.1%) pregnancies in 56 (36.8%) women; and Indo-Asians, 70 (32.3%) pregnancies in 48 (31.6%) women. The prevalences of pre-eclampsia in White, Black and Indo-Asian women were 17.2%, 12.7% and 18.6%, respectively (p = 0.58). Pregnancies of Indo-Asian women were of shorter gestation, and babies in this group also had lower birth weight and ponderal index compared to those of White and Black women (all p < 0.05). The proportions of overall perinatal mortality were 1.6% for Whites (1/64), 3.8% for Blacks (3/79) and 10.0% for Indo-Asians (7/70), suggesting increased risk in the Indo-Asian group. Indo-Asian women with chronic essential hypertension need careful antenatal care and observation during pregnancy.  (+info)

Candidate parasitic diseases. (4/2725)

This paper discusses five parasitic diseases: American trypanosomiasis (Chagas disease), dracunculiasis, lymphatic filariasis, onchocerciasis and schistosomiasis. The available technology and health infrastructures in developing countries permit the eradication of dracunculiasis and the elimination of lymphatic filariasis due to Wuchereria bancrofti. Blindness due to onchocerciasis and transmission of this disease will be prevented in eleven West African countries; transmission of Chagas disease will be interrupted. A well-coordinated international effort is required to ensure that scarce resources are not wasted, efforts are not duplicated, and planned national programmes are well supported.  (+info)

Relative influences of sex, race, environment, and HIV infection on body composition in adults. (5/2725)

BACKGROUND: The factors that control body composition in disease are uncertain. OBJECTIVE: We planned to compare the relative influences of HIV infection, sex, race, and environment on body composition. METHODS: We analyzed results of body composition studies performed by bioelectrical impedance analysis in 1415 adults from 2 cohorts: white and African American men and women from the United States, and African men and women (279 HIV-infected and 1136 control). The effects of sex and HIV infection on weight, body cell mass, and fat-free mass were analyzed by using both unadjusted and age-, weight-, and height-adjusted data. RESULTS: Control men weighed more and had more body cell mass and fat-free mass than did control women, although control women had more fat. The strongest correlates with body composition were height and weight, followed by sex. HIV infection, age, environment, and race. Control men and women weighed more and had more body cell mass, fat-free mass, and fat than did HIV-infected men. However, differences in body composition between HIV-infected and control groups were strongly influenced by sex. Of the differences in weight between HIV-infected and uninfected subjects, fat-free mass accounted for 51% in men but only 18% in women, in whom the remainder was fat. Sex effects were similar in African and American groups. CONCLUSIONS: Sex has a marked effect on the changes in body composition during HIV infection, with women losing disproportionately more fat than men. Sex-related differences in body composition were narrower in the HIV-infected groups. Race and environment had smaller effects than sex and HIV infection.  (+info)

X chromosome evidence for ancient human histories. (6/2725)

Diverse African and non-African samples of the X-linked PDHA1 (pyruvate dehydrogenase E1 alpha subunit) locus revealed a fixed DNA sequence difference between the two sample groups. The age of onset of population subdivision appears to be about 200 thousand years ago. This predates the earliest modern human fossils, suggesting the transformation to modern humans occurred in a subdivided population. The base of the PDHA1 gene tree is relatively ancient, with an estimated age of 1.86 million years, a late Pliocene time associated with early species of Homo. PDHA1 revealed very low variation among non-Africans, but in other respects the data are consistent with reports from other X-linked and autosomal haplotype data sets. Like these other genes, but in conflict with microsatellite and mitochondrial data, PDHA1 does not show evidence of human population expansion.  (+info)

Geographic distribution and evolution of Sindbis virus in Australia. (7/2725)

The molecular epidemiology and evolution of Sindbis (SIN) virus in Australia was examined. Several SIN virus strains isolated from other countries were also included in the analysis. Two regions of the virus genome were sequenced including a 418 bp region of the E2 gene and a 484 bp region containing part of the junction region and the 5' end of the C gene. Analysis of the nucleotide and deduced amino acid sequence data from 40 SIN virus isolates clearly separated the Paleoarctic/Ethiopian and Oriental/Australian genetic types of SIN virus. Examination of the Australian strains showed a temporal rather than geographic relationship. This is consistent with the virus having migratory birds as the major vertebrate host, as it allows for movement of virus over vast areas of the continent over a relatively short period of time. The results suggest that the virus is being periodically redistributed over the continent from an enzootic focus of evolving SIN virus. However, SIN virus strains isolated from mosquitoes collected in the south-west of Australia appear to represent a new SIN virus lineage, which is distinct from the Paleoarctic/Ethiopian and Oriental/Australian lineages. Given the widespread geographic dispersal of the Paleoarctic/Ethiopian and Oriental/Australian lineages, it is surprising that the South-west genetic type is so restricted in its area of circulation. Nucleotide sequence data from the C gene of the prototype strain of the alphavirus Whataroa were also determined. This virus was found to be genetically distinct from the SIN virus isolates included in the present study; however, it is clearly SIN-like and appears to have evolved from a SIN-like ancestral virus.  (+info)

Reforming the health sector in developing countries: the central role of policy analysis. (8/2725)

Policy analysis is an established discipline in the industrialized world, yet its application to developing countries has been limited. The health sector in particular appears to have been neglected. This is surprising because there is a well recognized crisis in health systems, and prescriptions abound of what health policy reforms countries should introduce. However, little attention has been paid to how countries should carry out reforms, much less who is likely to favour or resist such policies. This paper argues that much health policy wrongly focuses attention on the content of reform, and neglects the actors involved in policy reform (at the international, national sub-national levels), the processes contingent on developing and implementing change and the context within which policy is developed. Focus on policy content diverts attention from understanding the processes which explain why desired policy outcomes fail to emerge. The paper is organized in 4 sections. The first sets the scene, demonstrating how the shift from consensus to conflict in health policy established the need for a greater emphasis on policy analysis. The second section explores what is meant by policy analysis. The third investigates what other disciplines have written that help to develop a framework of analysis. And the final section suggests how policy analysis can be used not only to analyze the policy process, but also to plan.  (+info)

Malaria is a mosquito-borne disease causing fever, chills and flu-like illness that can be fatal. Despite an increased focus on malaria, it still claims hundreds of thousands of lives each year, most of them children in Africa. Poor quality antimalarial drugs, which lead to drug resistance and inadequate treatment, are also a growing concern, posing an urgent threat to vulnerable populations.. Fogarty has supported a wide range of efforts to combat malaria, including the Multilateral Initiative on Malaria, an international effort to identify and address malaria research priorities. Ecology and Evolution of Infectious Diseases, a joint NIH - National Science Foundation (NSF) initiative, funds malaria-related projects in Kenya, Papua New Guinea, Belize and more. Through the Global Infectious Disease program, Fogarty has supported research training efforts that advance scientific discoveries, while developing local malaria research capacity in places where its needed most.. Fogartys epidemiology ...
The location of early malaria expertise had a big impact on what was studied, says Priebe. And a growing realisation that the Western focus of research had occurred at the expense of finding ways of preventing malaria in endemic areas resulted, in the late 1990s, in the creation of the Multilateral Initiative on Malaria (MIM).…

Based on informal discussions with a range of scholars across the African continent, it was felt that there was a need for a scholarly publisher located in Africa, focusing on African content, and targeting an African audience. It had also been expressed by a number of researchers, and was of wider potential interest - given the authors institutional situation and context at the time, as well as management imperatives - that the Africa Institute of South Africa (AISA) could use its existing capacity and strengths in the area of African studies, specifically from a social science and development perspective, and its networks on the African continent, to form a possible institutional base for such a press, through the expansion of its publishing division. But there was no certainty as to whether this was in fact a viable business idea. Thus, this study carries out a feasibility study, to investigate and evaluate whether a scholarly press focusing on African material would be viable in the current ...
KDDI is blazing an exciting trail in telco innovation, but its path is far from the only one. Consider an operator working with a very different set of circumstances: Airtel Africa.. Airtel Africa stands at a different place in its network transformation journey. Its customers have less interest in exploring new 5G possibilities - and indeed, Airtel Africas 5G plans are still several years out. African enterprise and consumer customers care very much, しかしながら, about getting reliable, always-on data services everywhere they need them. Given the unique challenges of the African continent - vast distances to cover, extreme geographic and weather variation, lack of power grid availability in many places - delivering that is no simple task. 同時に, those challenges create opportunities to use new telco cloud and virtualisation technologies in innovative ways.. In many African markets, mobile handsets serve as the primary gateway for consumers to access the digital world. ...
Dear Africa Can readers, weve heard from many of you since our former Africa Chief Economist Shanta Devarajan left the region for a new Bank position that you want Africa Can to continue highlighting the economic challenges and amazing successes that face the continent. We agree. Today, we are re-launching Africa Can as a forum for discussing ideas about economic policy reform in Africa as a useful, if not essential, tool in the quest to end poverty in the region. Youll continue to hear from many of the same bloggers who youve followed over the past five years, and youll hear from many new voices - economists working in African countries and abroad engaging in the evidence-based debate that will help shape reform. On occasion, youll hear from me, the new Deputy Chief Economist for the World Bank in Africa. We invite you to continue to share your ideas and challenge ours in pursuit of development that really works to improve the lives of all people throughout Africa. Here is my first post. I look
The Africa Oil Governance Summit (AOGS) is the flagship programme of the Africa Centre for Energy Policy (ACEP).

When former president Jacob Zuma was arrested on July 7, 2021 and jailed for refusing to appear at an inquiry into high-level corruption during his nine years in office, his supporters took to the streets to demand his release. The protests quickly evolved into widespread looting as rioters blocked major highways and set fire to chemical plants, farms and food storage facilities. The violence claimed more than 200 lives and caused billions of rands worth of damage. However, this hasnt affected South Africa alone as it is sub-Saharan Africas most developed economy, and plays a key economic and political role on the African continent and especially to its neighbouring countries. Now SADC countries are asking various experts and government technocrats responsible for enhancing their countries production capacities, whether the possibility of becoming less reliant on South Africa for the importation of goods and services is a possibility.

As African countries commence the re-opening of their economies, the IMF has counselled them to do so cautiously because the pandemic is still in its exponential phase.. This was contained in IMFs latest Regional Economic Outlook for Sub-Saharan Africa released on Monday.. According to Abebe Aemro Selassie, Director of the IMFs African Department, The growth rate of new cases has slowed slightly since April, and a number of countries have cautiously eased some of their containment measures.. But region-wide, the pandemic is still in its exponential phase-sub-Saharan Africa has recently exceeded more than a quarter of a million confirmed cases, and new cases are still doubling every 2-3 weeks. Given the regions already-stretched healthcare capacity, the immediate priority is still to protect lives and to do whatever it takes to strengthen local health systems and contain the outbreak.. On the outlook for the region, Selassie said African economy would shrink by 3.2 per cent, double the ...

Africa is a very diverse continent, with each country, or even each part of a country having its own unique culture. While it is common for people in the West to refer to Africa as if it was a single country, one should remember the sheer size of the continent, and that Africa is not one country but 54 different countries, meaning that it is impossible to make generalisations of Africa as a whole.

South Africa is the only African country that is a member of the G20 and BRICS (the Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa grouping), and the only African country of the EUs 10 global strategic partners. This is mainly because South Africa is the EUs largest trading partner in Africa but it certainly gives the country a global clout that Nigeria currently lacks. Nelson Mandelas profile and the international activism of his successor, Thabo Mbeki, saw the former apartheid pariah state significantly increase its leverage in Africa and globally after 1994, and it simultaneously benefited from several years of healthy economic growth.. ...

http://www.pambazuka.org/images/en/357/46990diagr.jpgAfrica is certainly important trade partner for China, the volume increasing from $11 billion in 2000 to some $40 billion in 2005. China has a growing trade surplus with Africa. According to UNDP (2007), China has become the third largest trading partner of Africa, following the United States and France. China has focused primarily on the import of a limited number of products - oil and hard commodities for a few selected African countries . Chinas trade with Africa represents only a small proportion of Africas trade with the rest of the world, and is comparable to Indias trade with Africa, although both have been growing rapidly. China imports from Africa five main commodities - oil, iron ore, cotton, diamonds and logs. The export of these commodities, and in particular oil, has grown significantly in the last ten years. A few African countries (Sudan, Ghana, Tanzania, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Uganda and Kenya) source a significant share of ...
It is clear from the information stated in the first paragraph that WhatsApp has a very powerful platform on the African continent. Hence, African governments need to use this platform significantly to spread awareness about COVID-19 so that their citizens are well informed. In order to make effective strides in combating this virus, which is currently on the rise on the continent, a regional response is of absolute necessity. The African Union (AU) in this regard is the institution in question and has already acted quickly to come up with frameworks to counter the spread of the coronavirus. One such strategy being the Africa Joint Continental Strategy for COVID-19 OUTBREAK which supports collaboration across the AU in line with the guidance stated by the Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (Africa CDC). In this strategy, under section 2.5 of its second objective: Risk Communication and Social Engagement, it states working with the media and continuous engagement with traditional ...
The prevalence of diabetes is drastically increasing in every part of the African continent where repeated surveys have been conducted. According to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), the number of affected people in Africa will double within 20 years, from 12 million in 2010 to 24 million in 2030. Similarly, an increase is being observed in African diasporas of Western countries. In addition, there are some clinical presentations of diabetes that are predominantly observed in populations of African descent and that are difficult to classify. The most characteristic is ketosis-prone atypical diabetes, previously identified under idiopathic type 1 diabetes, which may represent up to 15% of all newly diagnosed diabetes in African-origin populations. This chapter, therefore, focuses on epidemiological specificities of diabetes in Africa, on the clinical specificities, and on atypical clinical presentations.
In February 2009, upon being elected chairman of the 53-nation African Union in Ethiopia, Gaddafi told the assembled African leaders: I shall continue to insist that our sovereign countries work to achieve the United States of Africa.[6] The BBC reported that Gaddafi had proposed a single African military force, a single currency and a single passport for Africans to move freely around the continent. Other African leaders stated they would study the proposals implications, and re-discuss it in May 2009.[7]. The focus for developing the United States of Africa so far has been on building subdivisions of Africa - the proposed East African Federation can be seen as an example of this. Former President of Senegal, Abdoulaye Wade, had indicated that the United States of Africa could exist from as early as 2017.[8] The African Union, by contrast, has set itself the task of building a united and integrated Africa by 2025.[9] Gaddafi had also indicated that the proposed federation may extend as ...
Africa Renewal: You are attending a meeting on industrialization in developing countries, which includes many African countries. How does Africa fit in the picture?. Li Yong: The ECOSOC [UNs Economic and Social Council] meeting is important because of SDG 9, which calls for inclusive sustainable industrialization, innovation and infrastructure. Africa has to compete within the global value chain, the manufacturing value addition and with the growth and speed of other regions. Two-thirds of the least developed countries are in Africa. Due to underdevelopment of the industrial sector, some countries are not growing fast enough.. What are the factors hindering Africas industrialization?. The sudden drop in commodity prices caused problems because it lowered the competitiveness of commodities-dependent countries.. But commodity prices dropped only recently.. No, not just recently. Lets say this has been the case throughout the last century. But let me talk about factors hindering ...
In his speech to the FOCAC Summit, South African President Cyril Ramaphosa said, the Belt and Road Initiative was in the interests of the African nations. China-Africa cooperation, he said, was in the interests of the African nations. In the values that it promotes, in the manner that it operates, and in the impact that it has on African countries. FOCAC refutes the view that a new colonialism is taking hold in Africa, as our detractors would have us believe...It is premised on the African Unions Agenda 2063, a vision that has been crafted in Africa, by Africans. It is a vision of an integrated, prosperous and peaceful Africa, driven by its own citizens and representing a dynamic force in the international arena.. Why do we support the Belt and Road Initiative? Ramaphosa asked. Because we are confident that this initiative, which effectively complements the work of FOCAC, will reduce the costs and increase the volume of trade between Africa and China. It will encourage the development of ...

ADAPTING AMAZE FOR SOUTH AFRICA In 2017, Marie Stopes International began the process of adapting the very successful AMAZE U.S. initiative for use in South Africa, led by the local program Marie Stopes South Africa. The goal of the project is to provide very young adolescents with web-based materials that offer positive, comprehensive, age-appropriate, accurate, and engaging sexual health information.. To make sure the content was relevant for young South Africans, Marie Stopes South Africa conducted focus groups with young people age 10 to 14, parents and educators to select the videos to be adapted as well key topics to inform a homegrown video written, animated and voiced in South Africa.. Scripts and supporting content were reviewed by a number of advisory partners from the sexual health and education sectors, who provided generous feedback that ensured the content was aligned with South Africa culture, policies, laws and clinical practices..

Hail to the chief? Chinese President Xi Jinping in Tanzania with President Kikwete with their spouses. China has committed billions to Africa as it seeks access to raw materials. The global economy is fueled by our demand for digital technology. To meet such a demand, developed economies scramble in Africa to secure precious minerals and metals.. In this Digital Age, China has become the worlds second largest economy due to this scramble. As the main source that fuels the global digital economy, Africa lags behind the rest of the world in digital production and consumption. China is a global leader in digital production and consumption - thus we see, Chinas development and Africas underdevelopment.. According to Dr. Walter Rodney in his classic How Europe Underdeveloped Africa, Europe along with the United States became a global economic power by way of capturing Africas precious resources, especially gold, diamond, cooper, iron, coal, ivory, and oil through questionable means. Dr. Rodney ...
Africa is home to 491 fintech startups, which are together building a new vision for the financial services industry in Africa.The Finnovating for Africa 2019: Reimagining the African financial services landscape report considers data compiled by Disrupt Africa over four and a half years on fintech startups active in 28 countries across Africa. While South Africa, Nigeria and Kenya are at the forefront of startup activity in the fintech sector, the research shows a number of other local fintech ecosystems are beginning to emerge, while the space is showing increasing signs of maturity. Funding, meanwhile, has been rising exponentially, with the sector proving the most attractive to investors in African tech.The report looks in-depth at nine sub-categories in the fintech arena, analysing more established spaces such as payments and remittances, and lending and financing, but also developing categories like investtech, insurtech and blockchain.The publication also includes:- Consideration of the regional
Extremely arid conditions in tropical Africa occurred in several discrete episodes between 135 and 90 ka...Fossil and sedimentological data show that Lake Malawi itself, currently 706 m deep, was reduced to an ~125 m deep saline, alkaline, well mixed lake. This episode of aridity was far more extreme than any experienced in the Afrotropics during the Last Glacial Maximum (~35-15 ka). Aridity diminished after 95 ka, lake levels rose erratically, and salinity/alkalinity declined, reaching near-modern conditions after 60 ka. This record of lake levels and changing limnological conditions provides a framework for interpreting the evolution of the Lake Malawi fish and invertebrate species flocks. Moreover, this record, coupled with other regional records of early Late Pleistocene aridity, places new constraints on models of Afrotropical biogeographic refugia and early modern human population expansion into and out of tropical Africa ...
Photo Credit: AHAIC Conference. The independent Africa Health Agenda International Conference (AHAIC) Commission has unveiled the State of Universal Health Coverage (UHC) in Africa Report.. The reports executive summary was released on the first day of AHAIC 2021 conference - a biennial convening of health ministers, private sector leaders, civil society and representatives from multilateral organizations taking place virtually from 8-10 March 2021.. The report highlights the progress made by African countries towards realizing Health for All and details the challenges and opportunities faced by countries in achieving UHC. Compiled between November 2020 and March 2021, the State of UHC in Africa report takes stock of Africas progress in fulfilling commitments made by African leaders over the years, such as the Abuja Declaration (2001), the Africa Health Strategy (2007-2015, 2016-2030) and the Addis Ababa Call to Action on UHC (2019).

In conclusion, we propose that the ancestral H2′ haplotype arose in eastern or central Africa and spread to southern Africa before the emergence of anatomically modern humans…Approximately 2.3 million years ago, the inversion rearranged to what we now refer as the direct orientation haplotype (H1′). This haplotype spread throughout the Homo ancestral populations in the African continent, virtually replacing the H2′ haplotype and becoming the predominant haplotype. We note that both the Denisova and Neandertal sister groups are predicted to have H1′ haplotypes…These early haplotypes were much simpler in their duplication architecture, similar to the patterns seen in great apes. We find that the more complex duplication architectures are particularly enriched in populations that migrated out of Africa. On the basis of sequence at the duplication loci, we estimate that the H2-specific duplication event occurred approximately 1.3 million years ago. Independent of the H2 duplication, the ...

South Africa is a central player in the O5. But is it a BRIC or the extension - B(R)ICSAM/BRICSAM? This a more difficult question. In CIGI Distinguished Fellow Andy Coopers Heiligendamm Process Project, we have been fortunate to have Brendan Vickers join us and prepare a chapter on South Africa (SA) entitled, South Africa: Global Reformism, Global Apartheid and the Heiligendamm Process. Brendan, by the way, is currently a senior researcher in the multilateral programme at the Institute for Global Dialogue in South Africa (IDG). Before his appointment to IDG, Brendan was Deputy Director responsible for International and Trade in the Office of the President of South Africa.. On economic leverage, it would appear that SA is simply too small to be part of BRICSAM. Currently, SA has a GDP (PPP) of only USD$467 billion which places it as the 25th largest economy in the world. As Brendan suggest, … there is little objective economic rationale for the countrys inclusion into the O5, let alone an ...
Epistemology is the philosophical study of knowledge: what it is, how we get it, and how sure we can be of it. Science is a major source of new knowledge at the moment - it helps people to find out about things. Its also a major source of power and influence over the world we discover, and over each other.. The history of science and the history of European empire are connected. The language used to talk about science shows this in phrases like frontiers of knowledge.. The relationship of the West to science is by no means straightforward, of course. One need only think of the politics around teaching of evolution in American schools to see that. But Africa - the whole continent, in all its enormity and variety - has had a particularly difficult relationship with science and has not always benefited from the power it provides. Much of the African continent has also had a difficult relationship with knowledge more generally - the power it yields or accompanies, its sharing or deliberate ...
The messaging from us at Africa Day is, at the very least, just be aware that the pandemic is still alive, try to be safe and try to stay alive, says Elba.. Speaking about the representation of Africa in film and TV, Elba says, Part of having an Africa Day celebration is to change the narrative. We have to change the narrative of what has come before us. Theres been obviously many different types of representation of Africa and most of it negative, but were ultimately at a junction where I have YouTube, I have MTV, we have creative thinkers, were telling the story of a day that celebrates me.. Were not looking at the past, were looking at the future and the narrative is now in control of us, Elba adds. I really feel that this is part of a big movement.. Africa is very exciting, Elba continues. Growing economy, growing population, incredible thinkers and innovators. And the narrative needs to be pumped out there that having having moments like this is one of the ways to be able to ...
The idea of the rallying call came about after Child Online Africa (COA) a civil society based in Ghana but working in Africa tried the call on African countries with the aim of having content which is created for and by Africans in the quest to addressing the knowledge gaps inspired by Janice Richardson. The humble effort in 2019 resulted in having 13 African countries teaming up to have a celebration dubbed Safer Internet Day Africa in a way and manner which reinforced culture, context and relevance. The discussion about how to scale up this African experience and get the by-in of a wider audience across Africa was tabled at the Child Online Protection implementation Forum (Accra 2019) 2019 organized by ITU ROA in collaboration with the Ministry of Communications and the National Communications Authority of Ghana as part of the countrys Cyber Security month celebrations. Under the discussion on how to popularize the initiatives on the continent, there was a consensus at the forum that ITU ...
This trend marks an encouraging departure from the resource-dominated investments of previous years. In a reflection of Africas social and economic development, investment flows are becoming more diverse as new growth stories begin to emerge. For the continents financial services sector, and its banks in particular, these developments bode well.. Opportunities abound. The Africa opportunity has traditionally been thought of in terms of natural resources. More recently, it has become a consumer-driven play, propelled by the dynamics around urbanisation, income growth and consumption, says Philip Lindop, head of African investment banking at Barclays Africa.. These changing investment preferences have emerged as awareness of the opportunities in the African banking sector have grown. Over the past decade, the continents regulators have tightened up capital requirements, leading to a consolidation of lenders in many jurisdictions. According to Mr Lindop, this has created a greater number of ...
Through extensive systematic searching focusing on sub-Saharan Africa and with no date restrictions, we found 42 papers reporting sodium intakes in sub-Saharan African populations, including seven that examined children. The previous systematic reviews in global populations mentioned in the introduction (Brown and colleagues, 2009 [16]; and Powles and colleagues, 2013 [15]) examined papers published between 1988-2008 and 1980-2011, and identified five and 11 papers reporting sodium intakes in sub-Saharan African populations, respectively. Brown and colleagues [16] did not find any estimates for African children, while Powles and colleagues [15] did not include children in their systematic review.. We have found that sodium intake in many adult populations in sub-Saharan Africa is above the 2 g intake recommended as an upper limit by the WHO, and also above this limit in some populations of children. Indeed, there have been no estimates of sodium intake for adult populations that fell below this ...
Threats to food security by disease out brakes are not new to East Africa; neither is it about to end if reports by farmers are anything to go by. A sustainable solution to this challenge however lies in crop diversity. Yet in East Africa, farmers are yet to move away from over-dependence on maize as their staple food with devastating consequences due to a scourge of a fatal disease dubbed Maize Lethal Necrosis in East Africa. | MAIZE

LINK TO THE ARTICLE. Would Donald Trump respond to the Africa youth bloom crisis? The booming population of Africa looms over his foundations latest global survey. The latest global survey estimated that by the end of this century there will be 4 billion more people on Earth, and 3 billion of extra souls will be born in Africa. It seems money investments in health and education of African countries is vital; Africa must almost quadruple its agricultural productivity to feed itself. Thats very daunting.. Bill gates is eager to encourage western countries, to keep giving aid. Bill gates is aware that Trumps financial support is essential but the truth is that it would be challenging to find two mega- wealthy men to work together in their view in the world. While Trump have constantly reduce the taxes for the rich, Gates calls for the wealthy to be taxed more ,Its amazing we allow people to have gigantic amounts of money when the state should take more of that.

African Leaders at the African Union building (Source: AU). How possible is it that the continent with the most of the worlds natural resources, hardworking labour force and favourable climate conditions could have earned the title of being labeled poor and be reduced to beggars than those that have less resources? The scenario that Africa has created of being rich but not prosperous has presented a paradox whose puzzle needs a careful consideration to spot the missing link to enable Africa retain its rightful title, The prosperous land of opportunity.. Since the management of resources and the driving of the development agenda falls mainly on leaders, the attainment of real meaningful development can best be achieved when there is in place the right leaders who are selfless and put the interests of their countries and continent above their own. With many African countries having attained independence decades ago, what type of leaders should be put in place to change the African ...
