The MIM Secretariat is the coordinating arm of the MIM, initially based in London at the Wellcome Trust (1997-1999) then at Fogarty International Center at NIH, US (1999-2001) and subsequently at the Karolinska Institutet/Stockholm University, Stockholm Sweden (2003-2005) and at African Malaria Network Trust(AMANET) in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania(2006- 2010). From October 15, 2010, the Biotechnology Centre of the University of Yaounde I/Armsterdam Medical Centre officially became the new host of the MIM secretariatand. ...
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 ...
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

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.

In early April, the African region had less than 6,700 confirmed cases of COVID-19, a significantly lower count than the more than 112,000 cases reported in the western pacific and the more than 655,000 cases reported in Europe at that time. A study published in The Lancet in late February notes that the African continent “has remained relatively unaffected” by COVID-19 while

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.

The impact African nations will have on the world stage will determine the rate of development the continent will grow at. Africa must strengthen relationships amongst its own countries and the world at large to have meaningful influence going forward. This article looks at the influence some African countries have in the world.. 1. South Africa. 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.. ...

To this aim we have an exciting program which has pre-congress skills building workshops on exciting topics which ...
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 ...
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 ...

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 ...

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 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 ...
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.

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. He also wants higher tax on ...

Opinion - South Africa is finally embarking on a long-overdue initiative: mapping the incredible biodiversity in Africas soils. It will document the microbial life hidden in the ground in sub-Saharan Africa, and the data it derives could help solve the continents crisis of hunger and food insecurity, and give birth to a new industry.
Following the establishment of the Dutch East India Companys initial settlement at the Cape of Good Hope in 1652, it became home to a large population of vrijlieden, also known as vrijburgers (free citizens).[9] The earliest vrijburgers were Company employees who applied for grants of land and permission to retire in South Africa as independent farmers.[9] Most were married Dutch citizens who committed to spend at least twenty years on the African continent.[9] In exchange they received plots of thirteen and a half morgen apiece, a twelve-year exemption from property taxes, and loans of seeds and agricultural implements.[9][10] Reflecting the multi-national character of the Companys workforce and overseas settlements, smaller numbers of German and French Huguenot immigrants were also allowed to settle in South Africa, and by 1691 over a quarter of the Capes European population was not ethnically Dutch.[11] Nevertheless, there was a degree of cultural assimilation due to intermarriage, and ...

A map of U.S. military bases - forward operating sites, cooperative security locations, and contingency locations - across the African continent in 2014 from declassified AFRICOM planning documents (Nick Turse/TomDispatch).. A Constellation of Bases. AFRICOM failed to respond to repeated requests for further information about the 46 bases, outposts, and staging areas currently dotting the continent. Nonetheless, the newly disclosed 2015 plans offer unique insights into the wide-ranging network of outposts, a constellation of bases that already provided the U.S. military with unprecedented continental reach.. Those documents divide U.S. bases into three categories: forward operating sites (FOSes), cooperative security locations (CSLs), and contingency locations (CLs). In total, [the fiscal year 20]15 proposed posture will be 2 FOSes, 10 CSLs, and 22 CLs state the documents.

Africa and Latin America secured their independence from European colonial rule a century and half apart: most of Latin America after 1820 and most of Africa after 1960. Despite the distance in time and space, they share important similarities. In each case independence was followed by political instability, violent conflict and economic stagnation lasting for about a half-century (lost decades). The parallels suggest that Africa might be exiting from a period of post-imperial collapse and entering a period of relative political stability and economic growth, as did Latin America a century and a half earlier. ...

South Africas government has announced that it will expand the countrys existing demographic studies to create a project that will be the largest of its kind in Africa - tracking the health, income, and educational attainment of around 1% of South Africas population.. The Department of Science and Technology estimates that it will put 264 million rand (US$19 million) into the demographic project over the next five years, which will eventually cover at least half a million people. It has secured the funding for its first three years; the rest will need to be allocated in future government budgets.. If the study can be sustained in the long term, researchers hope that the data will help them to track efforts to curb major health problems such as HIV and tuberculosis, and to monitor emerging lifestyle-related threats such as cancer and diabetes. The department intends for the survey to run for decades, following people from the cradle to the grave and monitoring ...
Africa bears the heaviest burden of disease mainly due to communicable diseases especially HIV/AIDS, Malaria and Tuberculosis, as well as high child and maternal mortality, some of which are preventable. Non-communicable diseases, such as high-blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes and mental illness are also emerging as contributors to the healthcare burden.. This greatly impacts on the continents resources: Whereas Africa carries the highest burden of diseases and therefore needs to have health systems which can cope effectively with controlling the disease burden, the financial resources needed for that to happen has not been available or adequate.. Unfortunately, allopathic infrastructure is costly and often only deals with health problems after they have manifested.. The Institute for Excellence in Africa promotes a new inexpensive natural approach to healthcare which focuses on preventing sickness and disease at their source.. • Cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and stroke. • ...
