GENEVA, 22 May 2019-The West Africa Commission on Drugs, UNAIDS and the Global Commission on Drug Policy today presented the Model Drug Law for West Africa to ministers of health of the Economic Community of West African States.. Drug laws in western Africa are not having the intended effect. Neither drug use nor drug trafficking have been effectively reduced. Drug trafficking in western Africa has reached such an extent that the drug trade threatens stability in the region. Data from the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime from 2014 show that the use of cannabis in western Africa is much higher than globally―12.4% of people in the region had used cannabis in 2014, whereas only 3.9% of the global population had done so―and the problematic use of prescription and synthetic drugs is increasing. The rise in prison populations owing to pre-trial detention and drug-related offences has led to serious prison overcrowding in most countries.. "People who use drugs need help and care, not ...
The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared the spread of Ebola in West Africa an international health emergency.WHO officials said a coordinated international response was essential to stop and reverse the spread of the virus.The announcement came after experts convened a two-day emergency meeting in Switzerland.So far more than 930 people have died from Ebola in West Africa this year.The United Nations health agency said the outbreak was an "extraordinary event"."The possible consequences of further international spread are particularly serious in view of the virulence of the virus, the intensive community and health facility transmission patterns, and the weak health systems in the currently affected and most at-risk countries," it said in a statement.TAG:WHO: Ebola an international emergencyEbola outbreak in West Africa global emergency - CNN.comWHO declares Ebola outbreak an international public health ..WHO declares Ebola epidemic a global emergency - YahoWHO: Ebola an international ...
FAOs DRM programme in West Africa and the Sahel seeks to protect, reinforce and restore the livelihoods and food security of the most vulnerable populations affected by slow or sudden onset crises
So is there anything I am worried about? And why do I think the outbreak in western Africa is so big and has been going on for so long? Im worried that citizens in the U.S. would never be as forthcoming about turning themselves in for isolation as the people in northern Uganda were. And I think this is the crux of the problem in western Africa today.. Remember I said the path to isolation starts when a person presents to the isolation ward? Well, that step is essential. The reason Im not worried about the two people being treated for Ebola virus in the United States right now is that they are in a hospital being cared for by experts. Not only does it increase their chance of fighting the disease-because they will get the best support possible-but it decreases the chances of anyone they love getting the disease.. These two did the right thing. When they thought they had Ebola they followed the normal procedures and went into isolation. At Lacor Hospital, I saw the same thing. People there ...

This humble little building in a back alley of Tangier is the final resting place of the greatest traveler in history.. Ibn Battuta was born in Tangier in 1304. In 1325 he left to go on the Hajj and ended up visiting not only Mecca, but crisscrossing much of the Middle East and sailing far down the east coast of Africa. Then he headed east, passing through central and Southern Asia and making it as far as Beijing before coming back and taking a jaunt through much of western Africa.. While Im not too keen on citing Wikipedia as a source, it does have some detailed maps of Ibn Battutas journeys. In all, he traveled an estimated 75,000 miles, three times as much as Marco Polo, but is far less known in the West because Marco Polo was European and Ibn Battuta was Arab. So it goes.. Reading his accounts shows you that travel hasnt really changed all that much: loneliness, illness, hospitality and fascinating sights were the hallmarks of adventure travel then as they are now. He had only made it as ...
Public health measures in the developed world have dramatically reduced mortality from viral epidemics. But when epidemics do occur, they can spread quickly with global air travel. In 2009, an outbreak of H1N1 influenza spread across various continents. In early 2014, cases of Ebola in Guinea led to a massive epidemic in western Africa. This included the case of an infected man who traveled to the United States, sparking fears the epidemic might spread beyond Africa.. Until the late 1930s and the advent of the electron microscope, no one had seen a virus. Yet treatments for preventing or curing viral infections were used and developed long before that. Historical records suggest that by the 17th century, and perhaps earlier, inoculation (also known as variolation) was being used to prevent the viral disease smallpox in various parts of the world. By the late 18th century, Englishman Edward Jenner was inoculating patients with cowpox to prevent smallpox, a technique he coined ...
In recent years, patriotism has increased amongst the nations of Johnny Foreigner, spreading throughout the peoples of Middle East, Asia, Africa and South America like a wild fire. Patriotism in foreigners is called "nationalism", and is a virulent and terrible thing, as nobody is allowed to be proud of their own country but us.. Outbreaks of Patriotism were seen in several Central and South American states during the 18th and 19th centuries, along with other gifts from their European Colonial benefactors such as clothes, cholera and smallpox. However, patriotism became pandemic in many places such as Peru, Bolivia and Cuba during the 20th century.. An unusual strain of patriotism was discovered throughout the Middle East in the latter half of the 20th century. Known as the Anti-American Strain (Imperius Wankiyank) the virus spread from the Cashmir in the East through to Western Africa. Causing intense heat to the temple, forcing victims to wear tight towels, the virus literally exploded in ...
Talk radio host Michael Savage pointed out the absurdity of sending 4,000 U.S. troops into those western Africa countries in which thousands are dying, supposedly from Ebola. Of course some of those soldiers will get infected and possibly spread the virus here in the U.S. when they return. But while thousands are dying supposedly of Ebola in Africa, hundreds of thousands there are dying of malaria, and hundreds of thousands of people are dying each year of seasonal flu, both facts according to this Guardian article.. But the denial in the clueless MSM that Obama and his minions would possibly intentionally try to cause harm to Americans was expressed by Jake Tapper of CNN, in which heresponded to Michael Savages remarks by stating, "Its hard to even know where to start with that one - the idea that the president wants to infect soldiers and then Americans. Its so unhinged, we should probably not bother dignifying it with fact-checking.". No, God forbid news reporters would ever check facts, ...

The Ebola virus presents a particularly nasty way to die. "Early symptoms of the disease include … sudden fever, chills and muscle aches," the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC, explains. "Around the fifth day after onset of symptoms, a skin rash can occur. Nausea, vomiting, chest pain, a sore throat, abdominal pain and diarrhea may follow. Symptoms become increasingly severe and may include jaundice, severe weight loss, mental confusion, shock and multi-organ failure.". There is no known cure or vaccine for the virus, and as many as 90 percent of those who contract the disease die from it.. But what are the odds of it infecting the U.S.? And could the porous southern border provide an avenue for Ebola to enter the country?. Though no case of the disease has ever been reported in the U.S., the World Health Organization admits the current outbreak in Western Africa - which has infected at least two Americans working in relief efforts there - is the worst on record.

The potential risk of ongoing epidemic growth along with the prospect of endemic EVD in West Africa call for by far the most forceful implementation of current Handle actions and for that speedy progress and deployment of new medication and vaccines ...
Both WHO and some national public health agencies such as the CDC monitor and prepare for emerging infectious diseases. An emerging infectious disease is either new to the human population or has shown an increase in prevalence in the previous twenty years. Whether the disease is new or conditions have changed to cause an increase in frequency, its status as emerging implies the need to apply resources to understand and control its growing impact.. Emerging diseases may change their frequency gradually over time, or they may experience sudden epidemic growth. The importance of vigilance was made clear during the Ebola hemorrhagic fever epidemic in western Africa through 2014-2015. Although health experts had been aware of the Ebola virus since the 1970s, an outbreak on such a large scale had never happened before (Figure 12.14). Previous human epidemics had been small, isolated, and contained. Indeed, the gorilla and chimpanzee populations of western Africa had suffered far worse from Ebola than ...
Chocolate, which you probably know, comes from the cacao bean. Most of the cacao farms are over in Western Africa, Asia and Latin America. Hersheys, Mars, and Nestle are some of the worlds largest cacao (also known as cocoa) purchasers from these countries, mostly in Western Africa. The chocolate industry, especially this time of year, has a high demand on CHEAP chocolate in massive quantities. On average, cacao farmers earn way below the poverty line of $2 a day; and if that wasnt bad enough, because they need cheap cacao quickly in large quantities, they have resorted to using child labor. Often times, these children are sold to these large farms by their family members with a promise of high pay and good living conditions. Little do they know that they are working for basically pennies, eating things like corn paste, rarely get any water, and may never see their families again. But other times, these children are literally abducted from their villages without parental consent, often seeing ...

Abstract The research project on the epidemiology and control of malaria conducted in the Garki District, Kano State, jointly by the Government of Nigeria and the World Health Organization included among its objectives the study of the baseline epidemiology prior to the introduction of any control measures. The present paper analyzes the project's data with respect to the relationships among the three species of Plasmodium present, P. falciparum, P. malariae and P. ovale. Parasitemia with P. falciparum or P. malariae is more likely in the presence than in the absence of the other species. Among persons positive for P. falciparum, those with a higher density of parasitemia are more likely to have P. malariae also than those with a lower density of P. falciparum parasitemia. There is a pronounced seasonal alternation in prevalence between P. falciparum and P. malariae.
The report, in placing Cape Verde in 2050 as one of the most densely populated countries in Africa, with the aggravating factor of coming in sixth position in the ranking of countries on the continent with the highest percentage of urban population, is expected to put the governing class on red alert regarding policies and measures to be undertaken in the coming decades.. The situation calls for planning strategies and the responsible use of land (which is an extremely scarce resource in Cape Verde), as well as measures in the areas of health, education and the encouragement of rural activities as a way of maintaining current rural populations in place and attracting new inhabitants to the countryside.. Such measures will be necessary to keep Cape Verde from having highly disorganized cities featuring a young population devoid of direction and perspectives. The programs and measures to be developed will have to be elaborated for the long term, and will require a great deal of funding and ...
The West African Students Union (WASU), founded in London in 1925 and active into the 1960s, was an association of students from various West African countries who were studying in the United Kingdom. WASU was founded on 7 August 1925 by twenty-one law students, led by Ladipo Solanke and Herbert Bankole-Bright. Solanke had founded the Nigerian Progress Union (NPU), for London-based students with a Nigerian background, the previous year. With the support of Amy Ashwood Garvey, it had begun to campaign for improved welfare for all African students in London, and for assorted measures for progress in Britains African colonies. As early as 1923, Solanke had proposed that the Union of Students of African Descent (USAD), a Christian social organisation dominated by students from the West Indies (and which had grown out of the earlier West African and West Indian Christian Union, founded in 1917), should incorporate itself into the National Congress of British West Africa (NCBWA). In 1925, ...
