What is now Ecuador formed part of the northern Inca Empire until the Spanish conquest in 1533. Quito became a seat of Spanish colonial government in 1563 and part of the Viceroyalty of New Granada in 1717. The territories of the Viceroyalty - New Granada (Colombia), Venezuela, and Quito - gained their independence between 1819 and 1822 and formed a federation known as Gran Colombia. When Quito withdrew in 1830, the traditional name was changed in favor of the "Republic of the Equator." Between 1904 and 1942, Ecuador lost territories in a series of conflicts with its neighbors. A border war with Peru that flared in 1995 was resolved in 1999. Although Ecuador marked 30 years of civilian governance in 2004, the period was marred by political instability. Protests in Quito contributed to the mid-term ouster of three of Ecuadors last four democratically elected presidents.

Ecuador, who had to play most of the second half with 10 men after Antonio Valencias dismissal in the 50th minute, became the only one of the six South American sides not to progress.. France topped the group with seven points while Switzerland finished on six, Ecuador ended with four and Honduras none.. With little pressure on France, which was all but assured of a place in the second round, coach Didier Deschamps made six changes to his starting lineup.. Ecuador knew it needed a victory to have any hope of progressing, but struggled to create many opportunities.. A relaxed-looking France team had the better of the early exchanges, but it was not until the 38th minute that they truly threatened when Ecuador keeper Alexander Dominguez tipped over a powerful header from Paul Pogba.. Ecuadors only first half opportunity came when Michael Arroyo burst down the left flank and Enner Valencia met his cross with a downward header, which was blocked by the feet of France keeper Hugo Lloris..

Ecuador exports offer such potential that today Merri and I are back in Florida speaking at the AWAI Lucrative Travelers Seminar. We will be talking about a variety of Ecuador exports including Intag organic coffee. A number of delegates who have attended our courses have taken this excellent Ecuador export this back to sell.. Ecuador Export Quote. "One delegate wrote: "Gary, The coffee I brought home, Rio Intag, is really good. I took the suggestion to use a French press and it is SO good. I inquired at some local coffee shops and they are interested in getting some samples; however, they roast their own beans, so I would need to bring back green beans. Would that be possible and does this idea have any merit for Import/Export? I noted that the Café Tostado En Grano that I brought home is 100% Arabica and is shade grown under native trees. If it is Organic to boot and perhaps fair trade, I think I could do a pretty good business with it. Thanks". Intag coffee is a great Ecuador export ...
Abstract A case suggesting the occurrence of onchocerciasis in Ecuador was first reported in 1952. The appearance of another case in 1977 provided the stimulus to do an epidemiologic survey on an isolated 20-km section of the Cayapa River in Esmeraldas Province. The Mazzotti test, skin biopsy, and nodulectomy were performed on 300 inhabitants of the area. Of the 300 who were tested, 210 (70%) reacted positively to the Mazzotti test, only 20 of whom had a negative skin biopsy. An additional 10 patients with a negative Mazzotti test had a positive skin biopsy. Combining the results of the Mazzotti test and skin biopsy shows a 73% prevalence of onchocerciasis. Sixty-four patients (21%) had nodules, and evidence suggests that ocular pathology may be present.

Smoking in Ecuador is more common among men and younger people. More than half of Ecuadorian smokers desire to quit. The Government of Ecuador plans to reduce second-hand smoke in public spaces by 2012. The tobacco industry in Ecuador includes the major players of Tabacalera Andina SA (a subsidiary of Philip Morris International Inc) and British American Tobacco (South America) Ltd. Smoking is expected to decrease as the government enacts laws and the public becomes more aware of the dangers of smoking. Smoking is common in bars and dance clubs, but non-smoking signs in restaurants in Quito are generally respected. In 2006, Ecuador adopted the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control, emphasizing Smoke-Free environments, reforms on tobacco promotion and marketing, product packaging and labeling, and clear plans to enact laws to promote tobacco cessation. In 2011, the Ecuadorian Parliament adopted the Tobacco Control and Regulation Bill to enforce strict regulations on the promotion and ...

Review Volunteer Jennifer Fields in Ecuador Quito at the Health Care program 1- How was the local ABV Coordinator and the support provided in-country? Wonderful! Laura made sure I was always safe and that I felt comfortable at all times while traveling in Quito. The family was incredibly welcoming, and made me feel completely at home. I couldnt imagine a better living situation.2- What was the most surprising thing you experienced? The hospital I volunteered at did not use electronic records, which was very surprising. There were also many more intramuscular injections and ultrasounds than I am accustomed to seeing performed. I was also surprised at the extremely high cost of medical technology as a result of taxes on imported goods. 3- What was most difficult to experience? It was difficult to witness people not being able to afford medications or procedures that they needed. In the emergency room, many people were unable to afford medications or surgeries that would have resolved their

QUITO, Ecuador - Indigenous leaders of fuel-price protests that have paralyzed Ecuadors economy for nearly a week said Saturday they are willing to negotiate with President Lenín Moreno, signaling a possible exit from the crisis even as violence prompted the president to impose a curfew in the capital and surrounding areas.. Moreno said the military-enforced curfew would begin at 3 p.m. local time in response to breakouts of violence in areas previously untouched by the protests. Around 1 p.m., masked protesters broke into the national auditors office and set it ablaze, sending black smoke billowing across the central Quito park and cultural complex that have been the epicenter of the protests.. Across the capital, groups of hooded young men used rocks and burning tires to block streets in residential neighborhoods. Some drivers, pedestrians and owners of small businesses reported being threatened and robbed. Roads leading to the international airport were also blocked, according to Quito ...

When Ecuador seceded from the Gran Colombia, Peru decided not to follow the treaty of Guayaquil of 1829 or the protocoled agreements made. Peru contested Ecuadors claims with the newly discovered Real Cedula of 1802, by which Peru claims the King of Spain had transferred these lands from the Viceroyalty of New Granada to the Viceroyalty of Peru. During colonial times this was to halt the ever-expanding Portuguese settlements into Spanish domains, which were left vacant and in disorder after the expulsion of Jesuit missionaries from their bases along the Amazon Basin. Ecuador countered by labeling the Cedula of 1802 an ecclesiastical instrument, which had nothing to do with political borders. Peru began its de facto occupation of disputed Amazonian territories, after it signed a secret 1851 peace treaty in favor of Brazil. This treaty disregarded Spanish rights that were confirmed during colonial times by a Spanish-Portuguese treaty over the Amazon regarding territories held by illegal ...
Leptospira spp., which comprise 3 clusters (pathogenic, saprophytic, and intermediate) that vary in pathogenicity, infect >1 million persons worldwide each year. The disease burden of the intermediate leptospires is unclear. To increase knowledge of this cluster, we used new molecular approaches to characterize Leptospira spp. in 464 samples from febrile patients in rural, semiurban, and urban communities in Ecuador; in 20 samples from nonfebrile persons in the rural community; and in 206 samples from animals in the semiurban community. We observed a higher percentage of leptospiral DNA-positive samples from febrile persons in rural (64%) versus urban (21%) and semiurban (25%) communities; no leptospires were detected in nonfebrile persons. The percentage of intermediate cluster strains in humans (96%) was higher than that of pathogenic cluster strains (4%); strains in animal samples belonged to intermediate (49%) and pathogenic (51%) clusters. Intermediate cluster strains may be causing a ...

The legislatures of Colombia and Ecuador have reserved seats for their non-resident citizens (emigrants). This paper analyses the relationship between the formal, descriptive, and substantive dimensions of emigrant representation in their homeland legislatures. The analysis compares the legislative work of emigrant MPs (EMPs) with the legislative work of non-emigrant MPs (NEMPs) in Ecuador and Colombia. It presents a mixed methods approach that combines a quantitative text analysis based on an original dataset -composed of 35,446 floor speeches- with in-depth interviews with six EMPs. The results show that emigrant-related issues are significantly more salient in the legislature of Ecuador and Colombia suggesting that the effect of emigrant-reserved seats is correlated to the size of the external district. Furthermore, the analysis reveals that EMPs have a mixed agenda composed by emigrant and domestic-related issues. Finally, the article shows that the probability of classifying a speech as emigrant
Fidel Martinez bagged a first-half double as Ecuador dismantled Panama 4-0 in a comprehensive international friendly win.. Martinez scored twice in the space of nine minutes before the break, after Miller Bolanos opened the scoring, while Jefferson Montero got in on the action in the second half at Estadio Reales Tamarindos in Portoviejo.. Gustavo Quinteros and Co. will now turn their attention to next weeks Copa America curtain-raiser, which sees the Ecuadorians face hosts Chile on June 11 in the Group A clash.. Ecuador and Panama played out a 1-1 draw three days earlier but the former stepped it up a gear in a rampant display on home soil as the South Americans won for the first time in three outings.. The hosts were positive from the outset and came close to breaking the deadlock on two occasions early in the match, while Panama also had an opportunity to take the lead via Blas Perez.. Ecuador, though, finally went ahead in the 27th minute courtesy of Bolanos, who was on hand to bundle the ...
The governments of Peru and Ecuador signed an agreement with the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria to help guarantee comprehensive quality of care to people living with HIV, including access to antiretrovirals (ARVs). Current methods of surveillance are inadequate in estimating the true burden of disease. Broad access to ARVs in countries without regular drug resistance testing can also cause rapid development of ARV resistance. By establishing a more sophisticated surveillance system able to capture HIV incidence, prevalence, patterns of HIV resistance, and genetic variability of viral strains, Peru and Ecuador will be better equipped to monitor the HIV epidemic, develop personalized prevention and control measures, and track patterns of HIV resistance among infected patients. This study will estimate the incidence of HIV, syphilis, and herpes simplex virus 2 (HSV-2) among MSM in Peru and Ecuador, as well as examine the number and variability of ARV-resistant HIV ...

Despite being a major transit point for drugs, particularly cocaine trafficked from Colombia, Ecuador historically has one of the lowest rates of domestic consumption in Latin America. According to the most recent United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) World Drug Report, though cocaine use in Ecuador appeared to be on the increase, it still ranked far below the regions main consumers such as Argentina, Brazil and Chile.. However, these statistics, along with those from the Organization of American States (OAS) 2011 report, which similarly ranked Ecuador low for drug consumption in the Americas, are based on 2007 findings from the country, making Camachos claim of a three-fold increase in five years hard to prove. Though the US State Departments International Narcotics Control Strategy Report 2012 also states the country has an "increasing problem of domestic drug consumption," up to date figures are yet to be released. Whats more, the increase in seizures may point to more ...

Ecuador, located in South America, has a population of 13 million inhabitants. Although an oil exporter, it is still one of the poorest countries in the region. This is mainly because of inequity in the countrys distribution of resources.. Twenty six percent of all children under five years of age nationwide have stunted growth; in rural areas, the figure is 31 percent, and in indigenous communities it reaches 47 percent. The national illiteracy rate is only nine percent, but for rural and indigenous women it is 36 percent. According to unsatisfied basic needs indicators, 61 percent of the population lives in poverty.. Ecuador is going through a transition from a food-aid recipient country to one with an increasing national responsibility to address the social issues of hunger and malnutrition.. Ecuador needs time to become self-sufficient in addressing these problems for the following reasons: i) Setback of results obtained in fighting under-nutrition during the recent years due to the ongoing ...

Ecuador has experienced ~99% reduction in malaria clinical cases in the last 15 years and is now pointing towards an elimination phase. Despite periodic focal outbreaks, the country has shown a malaria transmission decreasing trend. In 2014, Ecuador reported the lowest malaria incidence of the last decade but in 2016 the reported incidence (917 cases), almost doubled that of the previous year. The study indicated the presence of a significant number of asymptomatic malaria parasite carriers in the study sites, with parasitaemia detectable only by qPCR which is probably an indication of an official under reporting of cases.. The periodic outbreaks, particularly the most recent one, appear to depend on several features. First, as most countries do, the National Malaria Control Programme (NMCP) of Ecuador uses microscopy and more recently RDT for malaria diagnosis. Although these two methods have great value for passive case detection of symptomatic cases, they show very limited sensitivity to ...
THE HUMAN RIGHTS SITUATION OF THE INHABITANTS OF THE INTERIOR OF ECUADOR AFFECTED BY DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES. Introduction. The interior of Ecuador, known as the Oriente, is home to approximately 500,000 inhabitants. It has been the home of indigenous peoples, including the Quichua, Shuar, Huaorani, Secoya, Siona, Shiwiar, Cofan and Achuar for hundreds of years. Over the last several decades, pursuant to the discovery of commercially viable oil deposits and the opening of roads, the area has become home to settlers who have relocated from the highlands and the coast. The attention of the IACHR was first drawn to this region of Ecuador by the filing of a petition on behalf of the indigenous Huaorani people in 1990. The petitioners alleged that the most basic human rights of the Huaorani were threatened by oil development activities about to commence within their traditional lands, and sought that the Government be required to halt development activities in the concession area known as Block 16. ...

At the airport I was picked up by the very helpful Sani staff and my guide for the next four days, Olger Licuy, one of the best guides in Ecuador and definitely the best in this part of the Amazon. Together we will try to track down as many of my remaining Amazonian possibilities as possible..
