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)


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)

Canine leishmaniosis (CanL) due to Leishmania infantum is a global zoonosis endemic in more than 70 countries in Europe, North Africa, Asia and America; however, data on this infection is scarce from southern Africa. The aim of this study was to survey dogs in Luanda, Angola, for Leishmania infection. One hundred-and-three dogs presented to a veterinary medical centre in Luanda were serologically and molecularly assessed for Leishmania with the direct agglutination test (DAT) and polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Two dogs were seropositive, with DAT titres of 800 and ≥6400; the latter was also found to be PCR-positive and confirmed to be infected with L. infantum by DNA sequence analysis. No other dog was found to be PCR-positive. The first dog had been imported from Portugal, but the latter had never left Angola (neither had its parents), strongly suggesting an autochthonous infection. Although other cases of CanL have previously been described in the country, this is the first reported study of

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 ...

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. But it feels calm. Drivers in Luanda have figured out how to navigate the maze...slowly weaving in and out, letting a car in as they make a two lane road into three, and double parking with half the car on the sidewalk. Hardly anyone honks, it is hot and slow, and it feels like there is a sense of order to the chaos.. Angola is a country that has tremendous wealth, primarily derived from oil and other minerals. ...
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 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 ...

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.

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 ...

As Angola continues under a situation of public calamity to limit the spread of the coronavirus, reliable information remains an essential tool in the fight to protect the country. Despite early lockdowns, the number of confirmed infections in the country has climbed to more than 8,300, with more than 250 deaths, and restrictions on travel, gatherings, and businesses remain in effect, including a sanitary fence limiting movement in and out of Luanda, the pandemics epicenter in Angola (World Health Organization, 2020; Ministério da Saúde, 2020; O País, 2020).. A public opinion study published in April found that a majority of Angolans supported the countrys first state of emergency (27 March-10 April) as well as its extension, were following information about COVID-19 carefully, but had the perception that most of their fellow citizens were not taking the pandemic seriously enough (Boio, Pacatolo, & Mbangula, 2020).. A strategy of building community awareness to effectively combat the ...
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 ...

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 ...
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 ...

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 ...
AFP) - Angolas President Joao Lourenco held talks on Thursday with representatives of various youth organisations in an apparent bid to pacify restive youths after a wave of protests against his government.. Leaders from 17 students and youth groups, including from the largest opposition party UNITA, attended the meeting held at a conference centre in the capital Luanda and broadcast live on state television.. The meeting came after police and soldiers brutally cracked down on a surge of anti-government demonstrations that have rocked Africas second largest oil producing nation in recent months.. The UNITA-backed protests in Luanda have been against unemployment, the high cost of living and alleged state corruption, among other reasons.. Lourenco said that while demonstrating is a right protected by the constitution, that right is temporarily restricted by the measures imposed to curb the spread of the coronavirus.. He also said that demonstrations must not end in violence.. At least 100 ...

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 ...

By Mark James Johnson, IFRC. With one of the largest mass yellow fever vaccination campaigns ever attempted in Africa underway in Angola and the Democratic Republic of the Congo this week, Red Cross volunteers are donning the familiar red vests and fanning out across both countries to aid in the response.. Since the first confirmed reports of yellow fever in Angola in January 2016, mass vaccination campaigns have covered most of the affected parts of the country. The Angola Red Cross has been on the frontline of the response since the beginning - assisting with administering vaccinations, and reaching into communities to talk with people about the importance of vaccinations, and to share messages on how families can keep themselves protected from the mosquito-borne disease. Recently, the next stage of the pre-emptive vaccination phase, targeting three million people in 18 districts, began. Four additional districts on the border with Namibia will be targeted over coming weeks.. The Angolan ...
The outbreak started in December 2015 in Viana Municipality, a suburb of the capital city of Luanda, and has since spread to other municipalities in the province. Since that time, additional cases have been reported in the provinces of Kwanza Sul, Huambo, and Huila.. As of the most recent report yesterday, 240 cases have been reported, including 51 fatalities.. The Ministry of Health is working with the World Health Organization to control the outbreak and has initiated an emergency vaccination campaign in Viana Municipality, with plans to possibly extend the campaign to the entire Luanda Province.. The government of Angola requires all travelers older than 9 months to show proof of yellow fever vaccination on arrival. In addition, CDC recommends that all travelers aged 9 months or older be vaccinated against yellow fever.. The CDC notes that travelers can protect themselves from yellow fever by getting yellow fever vaccine and preventing mosquito bites. Visit a yellow fever vaccination (travel) ...

The Angolan government has been introducing several initiatives to encourage investment and business opportunities in the oil rich country since former president José Eduardo dos Santos stepped down.. The first new president in 38 years, João Lourenço, took over at the end of 2017. One of his first initiatives was to relax the visa requirements for countries like Botswana, Mauritius, the Seychelles, Zimbabwe and notably Singapore.. Citizens from Namibia, South Africa, Mozambique, the Cape Verde, Rwanda and Zambia can enter Angola without having to apply for a business or tourist visa.. It is clearly an effort by the Angolan government to encourage business and investments into the country, and to alleviate the unavailability of foreign currency in the country and the challenges behind that, said Tarissa Wareley, immigration specialist at Xpatweb.. She said another innovative decision is to allow people to conduct business under a tourist visa. This is a concession to investors from ...

One of the largest emergency vaccination campaigns ever attempted in Africa will start in Angola and the Democratic Republic of Congo this week as WHO and partners work to curb a yellow fever outbreak that has killed more than 400 people and sickened thousands more.. Working with Ministries of Health in the 2 countries, WHO is coordinating 56 global partners to vaccinate more than 14 million people against yellow fever in more than 8000 locations. The yellow fever outbreak has found its way to dense, urban areas and hard-to-reach border regions, making planning for the vaccination campaign especially complex.. Emergency yellow fever vaccination campaigns have already reached more than 13 million people in Angola and more than 3 million in Democratic Republic of the Congo. These campaigns have been crucial to stopping the spread of the outbreak. Some areas are still considered at high risk and so preventive vaccination campaigns are planned for the capital city of Kinshasa in Democratic Republic ...
Christian missionary work in Angola and Mozambique during the colonial and postcolonial eras was shaped by a complex of factors related to religion, education, and politics. Missionaries networks of local support played an outstanding role in their humanitarian work, particularly in the 20th and 21st centuries.By the end of the 19th century, Catholic and Protestant missions had established themselves in Angola and Mozambique. Until 1974, Protestants had a tense relationship with the Portuguese authorities, as they were suspected of serving the political interests of some European countries against Portugal, and later of supporting African opposition to colonial domination. Unlike the Protestants, the Catholic Church enjoyed a close collaboration with the ruling regime. Under the Concordat and the Missionary Accord of 1940 and the Missionary Statute of 1941, which were agreed between the Vatican and Portugal, Catholic missions enjoyed a privileged position to the detriment of Protestants, whose
African pygmy toads of the genus Poyntonophrynus are some of the least known species of African toads. The genus comprises ten recognized species endemic to sub-Saharan Africa, five of which are restricted to southwestern Africa. Recent field research in Angola provided new material for three species of Poyntonophrynus, including a morphologically distinctive population from the Serra da Neve Inselberg. Based on a combination of external morphology, high-resolution computed tomography scanning, and molecular phylogenetic analysis, the Serra da Neve population is described as new species that is nested within the genus. The most striking character that differentiates the newly described species from its congeners is the lack of a tympanic middle ear, a condition common in the family Bufonidae, but so far not known for Poyntonophrynus. The description of this new species from southwestern Angola reinforces the biogeographic importance of the region and further suggests that southwestern Africa is the

23 March 2005. Laboratory tests have identified Marburg virus as the causative agent in an outbreak of suspected viral haemorrhagic fever in Angola. Virus was detected 21 March in samples from nine of twelve fatal cases.. Retrospective analysis has now identified 102 cases in the outbreak, which dates back to October 2004. Of these cases, 95 have been fatal.. Most cases are presently concentrated in Uige Province in the northern part of the country (see map below).. Since the start of the outbreak, the monthly number of cases has progressively increased, but this increase could be the result of intensified surveillance. Around 75% of cases have occurred in children under the age of 5 years. Cases in adults include a small number of health care workers.. Marburg virus disease has no vaccine or curative treatment, and can be rapidly fatal. In the present outbreak, most deaths have occurred between 3 to 7 days following the onset of symptoms..

On August 22, 2007, Risperdal was approved as the only drug agent available for treatment of schizophrenia in youth ages 13 17; it was also approved that same day for treatment of bipolar disorder in youth and children ages 10 17, joining lithium. Risperidone contains the functional groups of benzisoxazole and piperidine as part of its molecular structure. In 2003 the FDA approved risperidone for the short-term treatment of the mixed and manic states associated with bipolar disorder. In 2006 the FDA approved risperidone for the treatment of irritability in children and adolescents with autism. The FDA`s decision was based in part on a study of autistic children with severe and enduring problems of violent meltdowns, aggression, and self-injury; risperidone is not recommended for autistic children with mild aggression and explosive behavior without an enduring pattern. Like other atypical antipsychotics, risperidone has also been used off-label for the treatment of anxiety disorders, such as ...

Thanks for the memories! I taught grades 9-10 @ Opuwos Putavanga JSS a few years back. I can see my school (and I think my house!) from the air shot of Opuwo town, as well as so many of the dusty roads I hiked everyday: to the post office, bakery and stores. Kaokoland is true Africa (versus the Europized central cities of Windhoek, Omaruru, Swakop, etc.) and the inhabitants, the Himba, Namibias national treasure. The Himba courageously took on the Namibian & Angolan governments when they resisted the Epupa Falls hydroelectric dam project in the late 1990s. It would have wiped out their land and life they hold so precious. While tourists have added to many Himba village larders over the past since the war ended, constant western contact threatens their pastoral culture and traditions. Its such a complex and difficult situation, but such a stunningly beautiful landscape ...
The main purpose of this trial is to test if mortality of childhood bacterial meningitis can be reduced by slow, continuous infusion of cefotaxime initially, instead of the traditional bolus administration four times daily (qid), combined with high-dose paracetamol orally, when both treatments are executed for the first 4 days. The series will be collected at Hospital Pediátrico David Bernardino, Luanda, Angola. The recruitment of patients begins, the conditions permitting, in early 2012. The criteria for patient participation is a child at the age of 2 months to 15 years who presents with the symptoms and signs suggestive of bacterial meningitis, for whom a lumbar puncture is performed, and the cerebrospinal fluid analysis suggests bacterial meningitis.
Biography Alcino Silva was born in Portugal in 1961, but his family moved to Luanda, Angola, when he was 3 years old. He came to the United States to attend Rutgers University in 1979. There, he worked with William Sofer on Drosophila tRNA non-sense suppressors and minored on philosophy (epistemology). In 1983 he joined the graduate program of human genetics at the University of Utah, where he worked with Ray White, a pioneer in Human Genetics, on the inheritance of epigenetic information (Silva et al, 1988; Cell PMID: 2898978). While a graduate student, Dr. Silva organized yearly graduate symposia where leading luminaries from the Arts and Sciences shared their insights on the nature of innovation and creativity. During his post-doctoral work at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with Nobel Laureate Dr. Susumu Tonegawa (1988-92), Dr. Alcino J.

The Portuguese established themselves on the west coast of Africa towards the close of the I 5th century. The river Congo was discovered by Diogo Cam or Cao in 1482. He erected a stone pillar at the mouth of the river, which accordingly took the title of Rio de Padrao, and established friendly relations with the natives, who reported that the country was subject to a great monarch, Mwani Congo or lord of Congo, resident at Bonza Congo. The Portuguese were not long in making themselves influential in the country. Gon9alo de Sousa was despatched on a formal embassy in 1490; and the first missionaries entered the country in his train. The king was soon afterwards baptized and Christianity was nominally established as the national religion. In 1534 a cathedral was founded at Bonza Congo (renamed Sao Salvador), and in 1560 the Jesuits arrived with Paulo Diaz de Novaes. Of the prosperity of the country the Portuguese have left the most glowing and indeed incredible accounts. It was, however, about ...

Measles is one of the leading causes of death in children and one of the most contagious diseases known. Among susceptible people (those who are unvaccinated and never had it before), 90% who come into contact with a case will become infected. Measles kills about 450 people (mostly children) on average every day. It is preventable through vaccination. In some part of the world, vaccination has never been widespread enough to prevent outbreaks. Due to decreased levels of vaccination in places with formerly excellent coverage, measles is a re-emerging threat that has been in the news a great deal recently. On February 20th, a woman with measles traveled from London to Washington, DCs Dulles International Airport (IAD). She traveled around the city and two days later flew from Baltimore Washington International Airport (BWI) to Albuquerque (ABQ), with a three hour layover at Denver International Airport (DIA). Thousands of travelers may have been exposed. Although Public Health officials are ...
In the majority of cases, the infection is asymptomatic - persons do not exhibit symptoms. Those that do have very mild symptoms and the infection may go unnoticed. Symptoms include fever, headache, fatigue, stiff neck, muscle pain, and vomiting. In some cases, the virus enters the bloodstream to attack the Central Nervous System which causes paralysis, usually in the legs. This is also known as Acute Flaccid Paralysis where the limbs become floppy. In severe cases, patients can become quadriplegic when the thorax and abdomen muscles become paralyzed and have difficulty breathing, swallowing, or speaking. Post-Polio Syndrome, characterized by muscle weakness, joint and muscle pain, and severe fatigue, can occur in survivors 15 to 40 years after being exposed to the virus. Treatment includes supportive care of symptoms, antispasmodic medication, physiotherapy, and even orthopedic surgery. ...
With its 733,643 people, Bhutan is the 163rd largest country in the world by population. It is the 135th largest country in the world by area with 38,394 square kilometers. In 1865, Britain and Bhutan signed the Treaty of Sinchulu, under which Bhutan would receive an annual subsidy in exchange for ceding some border land to British India. Under British influence, a monarchy was set up in 1907; three years later, a treaty was signed whereby the British agreed not to interfere in Bhutanese internal affairs, and Bhutan allowed Britain to direct its foreign affairs. This role was assumed by independent India after 1947. Two years later, a formal Indo-Bhutanese accord returned to Bhutan the areas annexed by the British, formalized the annual subsidies the country received, and defined Indias responsibilities in defense and foreign relations. In March 2005, King Jigme Singye WANGCHUCK unveiled the governments draft constitution - which introduced major democratic reforms - and pledged to hold a ...
Victória de Barros explained that the national territory has good climate conditions and soil quality, as well as enough water for the development of aquaculture, reports AngolaPress.. It is an activity that is also part of the guidelines within the governments policy, aimed at the diversification of our economy, stressed the Fisheries minister.. She further explained that the draft document of measures to be taken for the development of aquaculture has two main lines, one of which is turned to small production, designed for young people who, with some training and encouragement from the Fisheries Ministry, can get some earnings and provide some well-being to their respective families, as well as another project linked to the stimulation of commercial aquaculture, with the intervention of the private sector..
