How and why public sector doctors engage in private practice in Portuguese-speaking African countries. (1/119)

OBJECTIVE: To explore the type of private practice supplementary income-generating activities of public sector doctors in the Portuguese-speaking African countries, and also to discover the motivations and the reasons why doctors have not made a complete move out of public service. DESIGN: Cross-sectional qualitative survey. SUBJECTS: In 1996, 28 Angolan doctors, 26 from Guinea-Bissau, 11 from Mozambique and three from S Tome and Principe answered a self-administered questionnaire. RESULTS: All doctors, except one unemployed, were government employees. Forty-three of the 68 doctors that answered the questionnaire reported an income-generating activity other than the one reported as principal. Of all the activities mentioned, the ones of major economic importance were: public sector medical care, private medical care, commercial activities, agricultural activities and university teaching. The two outstanding reasons why they engage in their various side-activities are 'to meet the cost of living' and 'to support the extended family'. Public sector salaries are supplemented by private practice. Interviewees estimated the time a family could survive on their public sector salary at seven days (median value). The public sector salary still provides most of the interviewees income (median 55%) for the rural doctors, but has become marginal for those in the urban areas (median 10%). For the latter, private practice has become of paramount importance (median 65%). For 26 respondents, the median equivalent of one month's public sector salary could be generated by seven hours of private practice. Nevertheless, being a civil servant was important in terms of job security, and credibility as a doctor. The social contacts and public service gave access to power centres and resources, through which other coping strategies could be developed. The expectations regarding the professional future and regarding the health systems future were related mostly to health personnel issues. CONCLUSION: The variable response rate per question reflects some resistance to discuss some of the issues, particularly those related to income. Nevertheless, these studies may provide an indication of what is happening in professional medical circles in response to the inability of the public sector to sustain a credible system of health care delivery. There can be no doubt that for these doctors the notion of a doctor as a full-time civil-servant is a thing of the past. Switching between public and private is now a fact of life.  (+info)

WHO responds to major polio outbreak in Angola.(2/119)

 (+info)

Outbreak of poliomyelitis--Angola, 1999. (3/119)

On March 23, 1999, the Pediatric Hospital in Luanda, Angola, reported 21 cases (three deaths) of acute flaccid paralysis (AFP). By April 3, 102 AFP cases had been reported in Luanda and neighboring areas of Bengo province. A preliminary investigation by the Ministry of Health (MOH) indicated that these cases primarily occurred among children aged <5 years; 90% had received two or fewer doses of oral poliovirus vaccine (OPV), 4% had received three doses, and 6% had received four doses. Many case-patients resided in overcrowded municipalities where families displaced by civil war had settled. On the basis of preliminary data, MOH suspected the outbreak was poliomyelitis and began planning a vaccination campaign to control the epidemic. Surveillance was strengthened to identify and rapidly investigate reports of AFP cases to determine the extent of the outbreak.  (+info)

Detection of Trypanosoma brucei gambiense in sleeping sickness suspects by PCR amplification of expression-site-associated genes 6 and 7. (4/119)

We have developed a sensitive and specific method to identify Trypanosoma brucei ssp. using PCR to amplify conserved expression-site-associated gene 6 and 7 DNA target sequences. Amplification of 10% of the DNA in a single trypanosome produced sufficient PCR product to be visible as a band in an agarose gel stained with ethidium bromide. We analysed 59 blood samples of serologically positive cases of sleeping sickness by PCR, and directed parasitological examination of tissue fluids. The PCR test detected 87% of the parasitologically positive cases, with a specificity of 97%. In 5 cases, the parasite was demonstrated by the PCR test 4-6 months prior to parasitological detection. This result shows the potential of the assay in early diagnosis of actual T. b. gambiense infections in apparently aparasitaemic sleeping sickness patients.  (+info)

Attitude towards CATT-positive individuals without parasitological confirmation in the African Trypanosomiasis (T.b. gambiense) focus of Quicama (Angola). (5/119)

Serologically positive individuals without parasitological confirmation constitute an important problem for trypanosomiasis control programmes because of epidemiological and therapeutical consequences. In July 1997, in the focus of Quicama (Angola), 4753 individuals were screened using CATT/T.b.gambiense on whole blood. In CATT-positive but parasite-negative individuals, CATT titration on serum was performed. Sixteen individuals showing an end-titre lower than 1/4 were considered noninfected according to the results of a previous study of serological status of parasitologically confirmed cases; 86 individuals with end titres >/= 1/4 were considered suspected of trypanosomiasis and were followed-up from July 1997 to July 1998 with controls every three months. After one year, 32 individuals whose antibody titres dropped < 1/4 were considered noninfected, 22 were confirmed by demonstration of parasites, 17 were further followed-up because antibody titres remained >/= 1/8 but parasites could not be found. Fifteen individuals did not show up for testing. Following the usual criterion, only parasitologically confirmed cases were treated. However, if it had been decided to treat parasite-negative individuals with a CATT end-titre > 1/8, 22 initially unconfirmed but infected individuals would have been treated earlier, whereas 5 noninfected individuals would have been treated unnecessarily. CATT titration on diluted serum or plasma is useful for making therapeutical decisions.  (+info)

Eradication of poliomyelitis in countries affected by conflict. (6/119)

The global initiative to eradicate poliomyelitis is focusing on a small number of countries in Africa (Angola, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Sudan) and Asia (Afghanistan, Tajikistan), where progress has been hindered by armed conflict. In these countries the disintegration of health systems and difficulties of access are major obstacles to the immunization and surveillance strategies necessary for polio eradication. In such circumstances, eradication requires special endeavours, such as the negotiation of ceasefires and truces and the winning of increased direct involvement by communities. Transmission of poliovirus was interrupted during conflicts in Cambodia, Colombia, El Salvador, Peru, the Philippines, and Sri Lanka. Efforts to achieve eradication in areas of conflict have led to extra health benefits: equity in access to immunization, brought about because every child has to be reached; the revitalization and strengthening of routine immunization services through additional externally provided resources; and the establishment of disease surveillance systems. The goal of polio eradication by the end of 2000 remains attainable if supplementary immunization and surveillance can be accelerated in countries affected by conflict.  (+info)

Massive outbreak of poliomyelitis caused by type-3 wild poliovirus in Angola in 1999. (7/119)

The largest outbreak of poliomyelitis ever recorded in Africa (1093 cases) occurred from 1 March to 28 May 1999 in Luanda, Angola, and in surrounding areas. The outbreak was caused primarily by a type-3 wild poliovirus, although type-1 wild poliovirus was circulating in the outbreak area at the same time. Infected individuals ranged in age from 2 months to 22 years; 788 individuals (72%) were younger than 3 years. Of the 590 individuals whose vaccination status was known, 23% had received no vaccine and 54% had received fewer than three doses of oral poliovirus vaccine (OPV). The major factors that contributed to this outbreak were as follows: massive displacement of unvaccinated persons to urban settings; low routine OPV coverage; inaccessible populations during the previous three national immunization days (NIDs); and inadequate sanitation. This outbreak indicates the urgent need to improve accessibility to all children during NIDs and the dramatic impact that war can have by displacing persons and impeding access to routine immunizations. The period immediately after an outbreak provides an enhanced opportunity to eradicate poliomyelitis. If continuous access in all districts for acute flaccid paralysis surveillance and supplemental immunizations cannot be assured, the current war in Angola may threaten global poliomyelitis eradication.  (+info)

Outbreak of poliomyelitis in Angola. (8/119)

Between January and June 1999, 1,100 suspected cases of poliomyelitis were reported in Angola. Poliovirus types 3 and 1 were isolated. Patients' ages ranged from 2 months to 14 years. Of the 588 patients whose vaccine status was known, 58 (9.9%) received >4 doses, 216 (36.7%) received 3 or 4 doses, 178 (30.3%) received 1 or 2 doses, and 136 (23.1%) had no history of vaccination. Civil conflict, economic decline, and crowded areas with scarce sanitation and poor water supply are the most important factors implicated in declining rates of routine vaccination, low population immunity, and intense wild poliovirus transmission. The socioeconomic situation and poor roads have created major difficulties for vaccination and surveillance. The Angolan outbreak has serious implications for the global eradication of poliomyelitis. Surveillance of acute flaccid paralysis remains essential in the assessment of strategies for eradication and interventions to interrupt wild poliovirus transmission.  (+info)

UNICEF & WHO call for urgent efforts to stop the spread of polio. LUANDA, 4 August 2010 - In anticipation of Angolas upcoming polio immunization campaign from 6-8 August, UNICEF and WHO call for the full engagement of all sectors of government as well as communities throughout the country to ensure that all 5.6 million children under five years old are reached in the most critical polio campaign this year. As part of the Governments emergency plan to put an end to polio in 2010, Angola will launch a national polio immunization campaign, to urgently protect the countrys children from life-long paralysis. The campaign comes hot on the heels of the World Health Organization (WHO) issuing a stark report warning of the risk of international spread, given the high number of cases being reported in Angola this year. Since the beginning of this year, the Ministry of Health has reported 19 cases of wild poliovirus in Angola. Six provinces - Luanda, Bengo, Huambo, Bie, Lunda Norte as well as Lunda Sul ...

Portuguese. LUANDA (10 May 2016) - The United Nations Special Rapporteur on the human rights of migrants, Francois Crépeau, today called on the Government of Angola to develop a comprehensive national strategy to protect and promote the human rights of all migrants in the country.. "I realise that Angola is still in a post-conflict mode and continues to face challenges in improving the lives of its own citizens. However, this neednt come at the expense of migrants and discrimination against them needs be addressed," Mr. Crépeau said at the end of his first official visit to the country.. "With strong political commitment, a comprehensive migration and mobility strategy, and bilateral and multilateral mobility agreements with neighbouring countries, as well as effective human rights safeguards, Angola can fully promote and protect the human rights of migrants," he stressed. Angola attracts many of its migrants and asylum seekers from surrounding countries. Its long and porous border makes it ...
Angola is a giant jigsaw puzzle of different climates, landscapes, cultures and colors. From mountains to vast open plains, wide white beaches to thick tropical rain forest, Angola has it all, as if each of its eighteen provinces were a different country. Lubango has a mild temperate climate, Luanda is hot and dry, while Cabinda is steamy and tropical. Much of the landscape is dramatic, with plunging waterfalls, bizarre rock formations and deep gorges. With an Atlantic coastline stretching for over 1.650 kms, Angola has mighty rivers flowing into wide estuaries depositing sediments from the high plateaus to form numerous small islands, bays and sandbanks.. In Angola, you can encounter a diversity of wild animals: lions, hyenas, elephants and antelopes. Apes, hippopotamuses and crocodiles are also indigenous to this country. In the Namib Desert, which is situated in the south-west, you can find the tumboa, a unique plant with two wide leaves that are several metres long and lie on the ground of ...
Lunda Sul Province is not to be confused with Luanda Sul, a satellite city of Luanda, the capital of Angola. Lunda Sul is a province of Angola. It has an area of 77,637 km² and a 2014 census population of 516,077. Saurimo is the capital of the province. The Lunda Sul province is located in the extreme east of Angola, the capital of Saurimo located 946 kilometres (588 mi) by road east of the capital Luanda. It is bordered to the north by Lunda Norte Province, to the east by the Democratic Republic of the Congo, to the south by Moxico Province and southwest by Bié Province, and to the west by Malanje Province. Municipalities include Cacolo, Dala, Muconda, and Saurimo. The main road from Luanda to Lubumbashi traverses the province from west to east. The province is dominated by dry savannah land; only in the Kasai River valley are there remnants of tropical rainforest. The Kasai forms the eastern and southern frontier of Lunda Sul and is the main river of the province. The Kwango River is also a ...
Approximately 2,149 suspected and confirmed cases have been reported in Angola, including 277 deaths. The outbreak of yellow fever in Angola poses a threat to the entire world, particularly Asia. There are approximately 100,000 Chinese migrant workers in Angola who could potentially carry the virus home. Immunisation against yellow fever is practically non-existent in China and six unvaccinated workers from China returned from Angola with the virus. Asia is yet to experience a major outbreak of yellow fever, but expanding migration and globalisation make the continent highly susceptible to an epidemic. If we dont want to virus to spread, we must reach the countries where people are not vaccinated against yellow fever. We need rapid mobilisation to contain the outbreak in Angola. Increasing links between China and the African continent pose a risk to Asia, where yellow fever is virtually non-existent. The UN and the World Health Organisation (WHO) have already shipped 9 million doses of vaccine ...

Luanda, Angola, April 7, 2006 - With the number of cholera cases increasing rapidly in and around Angolas capital Luanda, the international medical organization Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) calls on Angolan authorities to quickly provide more resources to contain the growing outbreak.
This January 1976 South African aerogram is a mess - torn and soiled, with a chunk missing from the 9¢ Angelfish stamp of 1974 (Scott 415) - but the large boxed bilingual Afrikaans and English handstamped marking in red ink, "Destroy After Reading," helps explain why.. This is a letter to Rifleman H. Joseph of the Johannesburg Infantry Regiment, South African Army, from his mother. His unit was on active duty inside Angola, which had achieved independence from Portugal on Nov. 11, 1975.. Cuba had sent troops to support the Popular Movement for the Independence of Angola (MPLA), which governed the country from Luanda, the capital. South Africa, together with the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, gave covert support to the MPLAs opponent, the National Union for the Total Independence of Angola (UNITA).. As Mrs. Joseph wrote, "There was a t.v. programme last night dealing with the Angolan conflict … Altho it was interesting, they didnt show anything of the S.A. involvement, & we are still kept ...
Migrant women and girls in Angola who lack adequate legal documents have been raped and sexually exploited during expulsions carried out by Angolan security forces, a human rights group said.. Human Rights Watchs (HRW) report - "If You Come Back We Will Kill You: Sexual Violence and Other Abuses against Congolese Migrants during Expulsions from Angola" - denounced sexual violence, children being forced to witness such abuses, arbitrary beatings and other rights violations suffered by such Congolese migrants in detention centres in Angola.. Detainees were kept in overcrowded cells with no basic sanitation systems and with little food or clean water to drink and wash, the report added.. "The military disturbed us all the time to have sex with us," said a 27-year-old Congolese woman expelled from Angola in 2011. "Women accepted due to the suffering. There was nothing to either eat or drink or water to wash," she added.. "Sometimes they brought biscuits for the children, but only for the women ...

Military and security systems For generations Angola has been hammered by war, its history irrigated by the blood of the victims. Angolan and non-Angolan actors in pursuit of power and wealth have, before trying anything else, usually taken paths of violence and coercion. The effects have been cumulative. In response to the rollback war launched against it, the MPLA threw together, with East Bloc help, a force that later grew into a competent, battle-hardened army. Thanks to a US-led crusade against it, to a flow of petrodollars and to a free market in military goods and services, Angola is today a highly militarised and securitised place, one capable of deploying forces affecting politics in other African countries. Relative to the size of its population, Angolas military, police and paramilitary forces are the largest in sub- Saharan Africa, with the probable exception of Eritrea As of 2005, close to half a million people were on the payroll of the Angolan Armed Forces, although less ...
1. We must remember that it was by accident that the history of Angola became associated with Portugal. Violence is the very foundation of colonialism, which has its most ignoble expression in this slavery of Africans. It should not be forgotten that Portugal owes the Black Angolans an apology and should make amends for this terrible crime against humanity. Millions were deported and killed all over the world.. Since 1975 to the present date, the relationship between Angola and the successive Portuguese Governments have invariably been submission of Angola to a paternalistic and neo-colonialist Portugal. The MPLA and its regime being the favourite instrument for implementing this policy.. 2. By making use of the rights of all peoples to freedom, independence and cultural identity, UNITA, under the leadership of Dr. Jonas Malheiro Savimbi, has been fighting since 1966 so that the African Angolans become totally independent and free to choose the partners for harmonious relationship on the basis ...
Representative of the Open Society Initiative in Angola Esteemed colleagues We would like, first of all, to thank Mr Rafael Marques, Open Society representative in Angola, for the opportunity he has given us to express the ideas of the traditional authorities who met at the headquarters of the Angolan Forum of Traditional Authorities. Time does not allow us to make a longer input, so we will concentrate on the matter of the armed conflict. The war in Angola has already touched everyone, and much effort has already been put into the search for a solution. Yet the war never seems to stop. Because the interests and hidden agendas of those who wage and who support the war continue to complicate the process of building a real and lasting peace. The traditional authorities and local communities are witness, more disgusted on each occasion, to the destruction of peace, to the squandering of their natural resources and the killing of the Angolan people. The majority of the population has been and ...
The Portuguese colony of Angola was founded in 1575 with the arrival of Novais with a hundred families of colonist and four hundred soldiers. Luanda was granted the status of city in 1605.. Trade was mostly with Brazil; Brazilian ships were the most numerous in the ports of Luanda and Benguela.. Angola, a Portuguese colony, was in fact a colony of Brazil, paradoxically another Portuguese colony. A strong Brazilian influence was also exercised by the Jesuits in religion and education. The philosophy of war gradually gave way to the philosophy of trade. The great trade routes and the agreements that made them possible were the driving force for activities between the different areas; warlike states become states ready to produce and to sell. In the Planalto (the high plains), the most important states were those of Bié and Bailundo, the latter being noted for its production so foodstuffs and rubber. However, the colonial power, becoming ever richer and more powerful, would not tolerate the ...
As Angola grapples with its worst yellow fever outbreak in decades, the Ministry of Health, with the support of the World Health Organization (WHO) and partners have extended the vaccination campaign beyond the capital Luanda into Huambo and Benguela - 2 of the other 5 provinces reporting local transmission.. Since the outbreak began in December 2015, 1908 suspected cases of yellow fever have been reported (617 laboratory confirmed) and 250 deaths have been reported. The majority of the cases are concentrated in Luanda and in two other provinces, namely, Huambo and Huila.. In order to contain the outbreak outside the capital, nearly 2.15 million people will be vaccinated in 5 densely populated urban districts in Huambo and Benguela provinces over the coming weeks. Around 1 million people in the 2 provinces have been vaccinated thus far. "This targeted vaccination is critical to protect those most at risk countrywide and to stop the further spread of infection by making the best use of available ...

GUIMARAES NEBENZAHL, H; LOPES, Â; CASTRO, R and PEREIRA, F. Prevalence of human immunodeficiency virus, hepatitis C virus, hepatitis B virus and syphilis among individuals attending anonymous testing for HIV in Luanda, Angola. SAMJ, S. Afr. med. j. [online]. 2013, vol.103, n.3, pp.186-188. ISSN 2078-5135.. BACKGROUND: Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV) and syphilis remain major infections around the world. In Angola, about 166 000 individuals are living with HIV, representing a prevalence of 1.98% in adults between 15 and 49 years of age. In a 2003 study in Luanda, 4.5% of pregnant women had antibodies to HIV and 8.1% to HBV, and 5.4% were infected with Treponema pallidum. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of HIV-1 and 2, HBV, HCV and T. pallidum serological markers, and hence the prevalence of these infections, in individuals attending a sexually transmitted disease clinic in Luanda, Angola, and the burden of ...
In the middle of the fifteenth century, the Kongo Kingdom was the most powerful of a series of states along Africas west coast known as the Middle Atlantic kingdoms. Kongo evolved in the late fourteenth century when a group of Bakongo (Kongo people) moved south of the Congo River into northern Angola, conquering the people they found there and establishing Mbanza Kongo (now spelled Mbanza Congo), the capital of the kingdom. One of the reasons for the success of the Bakongo was their willingness to assimilate the inhabitants they conquered rather than to try to become their overlords. The people of the area thus gradually became one and were ruled by leaders with both religious and political authority. By the middle of the fifteenth century, the manikongo (Kongo king) ruled the lands of northern Angola and the north bank of the Congo River (present-day Congo and Zaire). Kongo was the first kingdom on the west coast of central Africa to come into contact with Europeans. The earliest such contact ...

Luanda Bay is the picture postcard of a city looking to the future. Even as they recover from their past, it is accompanied by African joy.
The dynamics of rapid urbanisation and urban trends in the present neoliberal context, which arise from the production of space in the capitalist mode of production, are evident in the peripheries recently produced for and by low-income populations. This article examines these peripheries in representative southern African cities, with Maputo as the main case study, analysed in relation to Luanda and Johannesburg. Basing my argument on the overarching theory of the production of space, I seek to understand how the interventions undertaken by the state and low-income people, and the interrelationship between these two main agents and the urban morphology, vary according to the historical, political and socio-economic specificities of each country. I argue that in Maputo, more than in the other two cities, these specificities, expressed in the morphology of these peripheral areas, benefit some crucial aspects of the living and housing conditions of Maputos low-income population, which is the ...
In 1960 a little more than 1 percent of the total population of Angola consisted of mesticos. It has been estimated that by 1970 these people constituted perhaps 2 percent of the population. Some mesticos left at independence, but the departure of much greater numbers of Portuguese probably resulted in an increase in the proportion of mesticos in the Angolan total. In 1988 mesticos probably continued to number about 2 percent of the Angolan population. The process of mixing started very early and continued until independence. But it was not until about 1900, when the number of Portuguese in Angola was very small and consisted almost entirely of males, that the percentage of mesticos in the population exceeded the percentage of whites. After a number of generations, the antecedents of many mesticos became mixed to the extent that the Portuguese felt a need to establish a set of distinctions among them. Many mesticos accepted this system as a means of social ranking. One source suggests that the ...
AbstractA recent collection of freshwater crabs of the family Potamonautidae from central Angola included two species of Potamonautes MacLeay, 1838, P. anchietae (Brito-Capello, 1871), and P. kensleyi, new species, which are described. In addition, Potamonautes adeleae Bott, 1968, is recognized as a valid species, and the taxonomic status and biogeographic affinities of other species of freshwater crabs that have been reported from Angola are discussed. The addition of P. kensleyi and P. adeleae raises the number of species of freshwater crabs known to occur in Angola to seven.
Within the past three months, a rabies epidemic has claimed the lives of at least 93 children in Angolas capital city of Luanda. With the population of the city exceeding 4.5 million, most in Luanda live in slums with unhygienic conditions. Hospital physicians were unable to save any of the children due to a global shortage of rabies immunoglobulin and vaccine, both required for post-exposure treatment before the onset of symptoms. Due to the high number of deaths within such a short time period, the World Health Organization (WHO) has called for a thorough investigation.. Luandas large stray dog population has been identified as the cause of the rapid spread of the disease. Despite this, stray dog control programs have been impossible to implement due to the citys lack of any appropriate veterinary services. (Exposure to stray dogs is approximated to be the cause of over 90% of all human exposures to rabies worldwide per the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.). Rabies ...

Angola Exodus, the adventure tour operator owned by the TUI Travel group, is launching holidays to Angola. The southern African country was once popular with tourists before decades of civil war destroyed infrastructure and left much of the population living in desperate conditions. More recently, it has become known for crazy prices: the capital Luanda frequently tops lists of the worlds most expensive cities, the result of demand from expats working in the oil industry, combined with a tiny supply of hotels, restaurants and housing. Exodus thinks the two-week trips will appeal to people wishing to get beyond conventional tourist destinations to experience "faint sand tracks instead of roads, and sleeping under the stars". The first trip departs on June 8, travelling overland north from Windhoek in Namibia and visiting Iona National Park, Lubango and Namibe; it costs from £3,699. exodus.co.uk ...
The World Health Organization (WHO) is reminding all travelers to the country that they are required to receive the yellow fever vaccination and to have a valid certificate of vaccination to prove that they are protected from the disease and to prevent its further spread.. Since the outbreak in Angola began in December 2015, 1 975 suspected cases of yellow fever (618 laboratory confirmed) and 258 deaths have been reported, the majority of them in the capital, Luanda, and in 2 other provinces. Amid concerns that the virus will spread to other urban areas and to neighboring countries, a large-scale vaccination campaign was launched in February 2016 and has so far reached almost 7 million people.. "Cases of yellow fever linked to this outbreak have been detected in other countries of Africa and Asia. We are particularly concerned that large urban areas are at risk and we strongly urge all travelers to Angola to ensure they are vaccinated against yellow fever and carry a valid certificate," said Dr ...
A warning from the WHO…."Angola is grappling with a yellow fever outbreak, which has infected more than 450 people and killed 178 - the first epidemic of the disease to hit the country in 30 years. The outbreak, which was first reported in the capital city Luanda in December 2015, has since spread to 6 of the countrys 18 provinces.Yellow fever virus is transmitted by infected mosquitoes, the most common species being Aedes aegypti - the same mosquito that spreads the Zika virus. Symptoms include fever, headache, muscle pain, nausea, vomiting, and fatigue. A small percentage of infected people experience a second more severe phase of illness which includes high fever, jaundice and internal bleeding. At least half of severely affected patients who dont receive treatment die within 10 to 14 days. Angola is one of 34 countries in Africa where yellow fever occurs, and vaccination against the disease is recommended." (WHO http://bit.ly/22IX0Y7). Karadzic Convicted! Former Bosnian Serb leader ...

This is the first time that simple and affordable microbiological methods for ON screening have been assayed in a population of newborns in Luanda. This work has some limitations derived mainly from the lack of experience of the local ophthalmologists in performing clinical studies and collecting data in an appropriate form, but it can be considered as the first attempt to develop ophthalmic clinical research in Angola. Results are not tried to be generalized but to contribute to convince the health authorities to adopt some prophylactic measures to reduce the burden of ON.. Culture and real time-PCR techniques are currently considered the most accurate, but routine use of these technologies in Angola is not yet possible and the goal of this work was to determine if was possible to provide the on-site ophthalmologists with some easy-to-perform screening tools that are able to reveal the possible aetiology of ON. Gram and MB staining techniques were considered as appropriate options [9] to ...
The latest truce in Angola has given the country more hope than its had in a long time. Thats because Jonas Savimbi, the leader of the UNITA rebel movement since its inception in the 1960s, died in a battle with government troops in 2002. The loss of one of the civil wars original instigators quickly propelled both sides to the negotiating table, and an agreement was signed just more than a month after Savimbis death.. Even if peace holds, Angola will not be a desirable tourist destination for some time: Just cleaning up the mess from the war will take years. The infrastructure is in shambles, and land mines pose a terrible threat. Whats more, the country is ravaged by disease and malnutrition. In short, it will be a long time before Angolas natural beauty will once again be available for travelers ...

INTRODUCTION. Malaria from Plasmodium falciparum during pregnancy is a serious public health problem in Sub-Saharan Africa. More than 50 million women residing in malaria-endemic areas become pregnant every year1-3. Although malaria during pregnancy might be asymptomatic due to the development of some degree of immunity by mothers residing in areas with stable transmission, it is still associated with unfavorable effects on the mother or the child4-8. For this reason, abortions, stillbirths, premature deliveries and maternal deaths are common phenomena9,10. Many, if not most, cases of maternal and perinatal death can be prevented11.. The impact of malaria-related anemia on pregnant women (id est., the risk of death) and fetuses (i.e., low birthweight) has been increasingly acknowledged during the last decades12,13, keeping in mind that anemia does not necessarily have to be symptomatic to become a risk factor during pregnancy. Low birth weight in newborns from mothers who had malaria during ...
In the past decades, international travel has increased and more than 125 million international travellers visit malaria endemic countries every year [1]. This has turned the attention of scientific and public health authorities to the problem of imported and introduced malaria. The leading cause of imported malaria is Plasmodium falciparum [2-6] and antibody reaction to the parasite circumsporozoite antigen among international travellers has shown a high prevalence of inoculation [7]. Infection is especially relevant in sub-Saharan Africa travellers [7].. Accordingly, the number of imported malaria cases has increased. There are approximately 30,000 cases of imported malaria notified per year in non-endemic countries with important morbidity and mortality [2-6, 8]. Both these indices can be lowered by adequate prophylaxis. Indeed, most cases of malaria are due to non-compliance or inadequate prophylaxis [4, 5, 9]. It is, therefore, imperative to find a chemoprophylactic antimalarial with a good ...

Corruption, nepotism and disrespect of the law are Angolas main problems," admitted Marcolino Moco, a former prime minister and one of the few critical voices within the Peoples Movement for the Liberation of Angola or MPLA, which has ruled Angola since 1975. "There is no consultation, but impunity and absolute power.". A telling case in point is a whopping 32 billion dollar discrepancy in Angolas treasury that the government cannot account for. U.S.-based financial watchdog Revenue Watch Institute (RWI) demanded this week that the International Monetary Fund (IMF) withhold a scheduled 130 million dollar loan disbursement until Angolan authorities fully and publicly justify how those billions have been spent.. "The IMF should insist that the government account for those funds before disbursing another 130 million dollars," said RWI president Karin Lissakers, adding that Angolas government urgently needed to combat corruption and mismanagement.. "There is total lack of accountability," agreed ...
In December 2015 Angola reported an outbreak of yellow fever in Luanda to the World Health Organisation (WHO). Although yellow fever is endemic in Angola the outbreak was of concern as it was occurring in an urban area and therefore had greater scope than usual to spread and involve more people. Since December there have been 3867 reported cases in Angola and 369 suspected deaths. The virus has spread to the Democratic Republic of Congo who have reported a further 2269 cases; and Kenya and China have had related cases in returned travellers. This is a very large outbreak; to put it in context the last outbreak in Angola, in 1988, affected 37 people and caused 14 deaths. The WHO has so far used 18 million doses of vaccine to try and bring the outbreak under control but its still ongoing ...
Abstract. Background: Malaria accounts for the largest portion of healthcare demand in Angola. A pillar of malaria control in Angola is the appropriate management of malaria illness, including testing of suspect cases with rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs) and treatment of confrmed cases with artemisinin-based combination therapy (ACT). Periodic systematic evaluations of malaria case management are recommended to measure health facility readiness and adherence to national case management guidelines.. Methods: Cross-sectional health facility surveys were performed in low-transmission Huambo and high-transmission Uíge Provinces in early 2016. In each province, 45 health facilities were randomly selected from among all public health facilities stratified by level of care. Survey teams performed inventories of malaria commodities and conducted exit interviews and re-examinations, including RDT testing, of a random selection of all patients completing outpatient consultations. Key health facility ...

Parliament approved an amendment on abortion on February 24 as part of the process of replacing Angolas penal code from the 1886 colonial-era version. The government had proposed a bill that would criminalize abortion, except in cases of rape or when the mothers health is in danger. But parliament rejected that proposal and made abortion, without exceptions, illegal. The final vote on the draft penal code is slated for March 23.. Under the current penal code, abortion is also illegal. The organizers of the protest want the new code to end the ban on abortions. Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch call for the decriminalization of abortion in all circumstances.. The protest organizers informed the office of the Governor of Luanda Province, General Higinio Carneiro, of their intention to march at 10 a.m. Central African Time from Santa Ana Cemetery to the Heroines Monument (Largo das Heroinas). As of March 17, the group had not received a reply.. "The right to protest is protected both ...

Disease Outbreak Reported. An outbreak of meningococcal disease in May this year was reported to WHO from the Balombo district in Benguela Province (see earlier report). Neisseria meningitidis serogroup A was laboratory confirmed for this outbreak and a mass vaccination campaign was launched in the affected district. To date, the Benguela Province has reported 94 cases and 14 deaths. Recently other provinces in Angola (Cunene: 44 cases, 7 deaths; Cuando Cubango: 25 cases, 0 deaths) have reported meningococcal disease to WHO. However, the data from the newly affected provinces does not allow the determination of whether any districts in these provinces have exceeded the epidemic threshold.. Angola has reported a total of 193 cases and 24 deaths of meningococcal disease so far this year.. ...

In the early 20th century, God took a dangerous man, confronted him with the truth, turned his life around and sent him forth to preach the Gospel. Sound familiar? Isai Mabengi was a leader of the native police force working to meet the demands of the Congo Free State, a ruling group that has gone down in history for their ruthlessness. Experts estimate that 10 million deaths occurred during this era. However, through a group of Alliance missionaries, God confronted the cruel heart of Mabengi and he ended up giving his life to Christ.. After his encounter with Christ, Mabengis life took a drastic turn and he dedicated his life to the preaching of the Gospel. Some years later, he founded and pastored a church in Ndingi, a few kilometers from Mayombe, a region in Cabinda. The legacy of his ministry and church is what we see today as C&MA Angola. Mabengi was instrumental to the establishment of The Alliance in Cabinda, Angola.. The Legacy of Isai Mabengi - 2017 ICCA Highlights. Today, ICAA (Igreja ...

Finalmente Angola decidiu efectuar um pedido internacional de ajuda ao FMI, para resolver os graves problemas financeiros que a enfrenta a sua economia. Em conjunto, desde 2014 saíram de Angola mais de 100 mil emigrantes portugueses, ou seja, aproximadamente 1/3 do total de residentes temporários nacionais naquele país, o que poderá ter fortes impactos nos níveis de desemprego nacionais. Com cerca de 1000 pequenas e médias empresas fortemente dependentes do mercado Angolano, a braços com atrasos dos pagamentos dos bens exportados ou ainda das obras já realizadas, temo que a breve trecho, estes problemas sejam passados para o sector financeiro nacional, nomeadamente para o nosso frágil sistema bancário. Além disso, as despesas do estado poderão subir de forma acentuada, sobretudo as rubricas relacionadas com os apoios sociais, o que terá consequências no equilíbrio das contas públicas.

I am in Luanda, Angola right now, and what an interesting place. It is the most expensive city in the world: a can of coke costs $5, a car and driver for the day costs between $250-$300, and a basic hotel room with a view of people living in shacks below and cranes building more skyscrapers above is $380 (and it is difficult to find it for less).Luanda feels like Africa mixed with Latin American and European energy and music. The traffic is bumper to bumper. It is not possible to have more than two meetings in a day because it takes that long to get from one area to another in the city. ...

Looking for online definition of Marburg haemorrhagic fever in the Medical Dictionary? Marburg haemorrhagic fever explanation free. What is Marburg haemorrhagic fever? Meaning of Marburg haemorrhagic fever medical term. What does Marburg haemorrhagic fever mean?
The first Filovirus was recognized in 1967 when a number of laboratory workers in Germany and Yugoslavia, who were handling tissues from green monkeys, developed hemorrhagic fever. A total of 31 cases and 7 deaths were associated with these outbreaks. The virus was named after Marburg, Germany, the site of one of the outbreaks. In addition to the 31 reported cases, an additional primary case was retrospectively serologically diagnosed.. After this initial outbreak, the virus disappeared. It did not reemerge until 1975, when a traveler, most likely exposed in Zimbabwe, became ill in Johannesburg, South Africa. The virus was transmitted there to his traveling companion and a nurse. A few sporadic cases and 2 large epidemics (Democratic Republic of Congo in 1999 and Angola in 2005) of Marburg hemorrhagic fever (Margurg HF) have been identified since that time. For information on known Marburg HF cases and outbreaks, please refer to the chronological list.. Ebolavirus was first identified in 1976 ...
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, resulting ...

The control of Trypanosoma brucei gambiense human African trypanosomiasis (HAT) is compromised by low sensitivity of the routinely used parasitologic confirmation tests. More sensitive alternatives, such as mini-anion exchange centrifugation technique (mAECT) or capillary tube centrifugation (CTC), are more expensive. We used formal decision analysis to assess the cost-effectiveness of alternative HAT confirmation algorithms in terms of cost per life saved. The effectiveness of the standard method, a combination of lymph node puncture (LNP), fresh blood examination (FBE), and thick blood film (TBF), was 36.8%; the LNP-FBE-CTC-mAECT sequence reached almost 80%. The cost per person examined ranged from €1.56 for LNP-FBE-TBF to €2.99 for LNP-TBF-CTC-mAECT-CATT (card agglutination test for trypanosomiasis) titration. LNP-TBF-CTC-mAECT was the most cost-effective in terms of cost per life saved. HAT confirmation algorithms that incorporate concentration techniques are more effective and efficient than
Yellow fever is an arthropod-borne flavivirus transmitted in urban outbreaks primarily by Aedes aegypti mosquitoes. In April 2016, a yellow fever outbreak was declared in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) (see map at bottom). From Jan. 4 to Aug. 18, 2016, 410 suspected cases of yellow fever including 42 deaths were reported from the Kongo Central Province, which borders Angola, where another outbreak had occurred five months prior. As a result, the DRC ministry of health initiated mass vaccination campaigns in the Kongo Central Province where approximately 1.5 million doses of yellow fever vaccine were administered. Of note, DRC requires proof of yellow fever vaccine in anyone 9 months of age and older upon entering the country. Paules and Fauci reported on a yellow fever outbreak in southeast Brazil this year and warned of possible travel-related cases in the United States (N Engl J Med. 2017;376:1397-1399, http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMp1702172).
