Decisive measures must be taken by nations and international organizations to ensure mutual survival and safety. In the past several years, key governments and multilateral institutions have devoted considerable effort to the task of more effectively integrating development and security policy responses to the related challenges of countries affected by conflict, post-conflict peacebuilding, and conflict prevention. The looming deadline of the Millennium Development Goals, has focused attention on this important nexus and the near impossibility of crisis- and conflict-affected states achieving these goals unless development and security is more effectively integrated. Despite progress on several fronts, including at the United Nations and at the international financial institutions, developing policy for effective development and security engagement remains a challenge in both conceptual and operational terms - not least because discussion of political, security, economic, and humanitarian ...

IIUniversity of the Mediterranean, INSERM/IRD Research Unit 912 SE4S, Marseille, France. According to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, the health sector has become a major recipient of development assistance from just over US$6 billion in 1999 to US$ 13.4 billion in 2005.1 The bulk of this increase can be credited to disease-targeted programmes and new global health partnerships, such as the GAVI Alliance (formerly the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization) and the Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. By August 2008, the Global Fund had approved grant agreements worth over US$11 billion with 136 countries, becoming the most important single agency for health assistance in terms of numbers of country partners and diversity of recipients.. WHOs 2001 report on macroeconomics and health provided clear evidence that improvement in the global health of the population should not be considered a natural consequence of previous economic growth and that ...

Present mathematical challenges for Theoretical Immunology cover different areas and range between pure and applied mathematics and statistics. We propose a research programme that concentrates on four major themes in Immunology, which present significant immunological and mathematical challenges. Our first theme, T cell receptor antigen recognition and activation (Theme 1), involves challenges for the techniques of large deviation theory, exact asymptotics, Monte- Carlo sampling, cell signalling networks and multi-scale modelling. Although mathematical models (mostly coupled ODE models) have proved invaluable for understanding our second theme, homeostasis and control of lymphocyte proliferation and death (Theme 2), there are still major mathematical challenges to be resolved, such as parameter identifiability, non- Markovian branching processes, calculating, or even demonstrating the existence of, the quasi-stationary distributions of birth-death processes with absorbing states, multi-variate ...
Needless to say that this a very sound r sum of how and where things went wrong and what the public needs to know to steer clear of further damage. I am surprised that you managed to publish this in a paper for physicians. What reactions did it elicit? And do you think that also the popular press in America (f.e. the New York Times or the Washington Post) would accept this view in their opinion columns? If a scientist (or a science writer) would manage to present this vision in a Dutch newspaper, a total war would break out. As a journalist I am curious as to how ripe the atmosphere is in the various developed countries. Our media still vigorously boycot any argument or opinion that challenges the current nutrition guidelines. TV-journalist have the strongest impact, but sadly they are also the most stupid of us all. It might well be that this time only the Internet will be able to force a renaissance ...

The reason for a change in HCV transmission pattern since the late 1990s remains unclear, but it probably relates to biologic and behavioral factors. It is striking that permucosal transmission of HCV is almost exclusively described in HIV-positive MSM. HIV coinfection might facilitate HCV transmission by increasing both viral infectiousness because of higher HCV viral loads in serum and semen and viral susceptibility through impaired immunologic control of HCV.33, 34 However, HIV-positive MSM diagnosed with acute HCV infection in our study had relatively preserved CD4 counts, with median CD4 counts exceeding 500 cells/µl. Moreover, high rates of HCV acquisition soon after diagnosis with primary HIV infection among MSM in the United Kingdom argue for behavioral risk factors rather than a role for HIV infection itself.35 Biologically, our data also argue against a change in the virulence of HCV because the identified cocirculating strains in this population belong to several different genotypes ...

In order to meet the need for support to vulnerable low-income countries, the IMF is calling for increased funding for the subsidised schemes for these countries financed under the Poverty Reduction and Growth Trust (PRGT). Norway is now considering the possibility of contributing to lending funds for the poorest countries through the PRGT. The Government is also assessing whether to allocate development assistance funding to the IMFs Catastrophe Containment and Relief Trust (CCRT). The CCRT provides debt relief for the poorest countries by covering debt service payments to the IMF during the period in which these countries are dealing with the pandemic.. I am pleased that the IMF is responding quickly to the crisis, and that the member countries are demonstrating their willingness to work together to re-activate economies. These efforts are designed to help vulnerable countries that lack an adequate health care system and economic structure for dealing with the ramifications of the COVID-19 ...

Neurologist Robert "Berch" Griggs, M.D., is heading the study of treatments for Duchenne muscular dystrophy, the most common form of the disease that affects children. The condition, which affects boys almost exclusively, progresses rapidly. Boys symptoms start when they are toddlers; untreated, they end up in a wheelchair before they become teenagers. With todays best treatments, the disease, which affects about 28,000 boys and young men in the United States, is often fatal by the time a patient reaches his 20s or early 30s.. Despite decades of research, Griggs calls the current treatment landscape for the disease "chaotic." Recently he has identified 29 different treatment regimens in use by doctors around the world.. The new study is designed to eliminate the chaos. With at least $11 million in funding from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, Griggs and co-leader Kate Bushby, M.D., and investigators at 41 other institutions around the world will study the three ...

There is a critical need for appropriate environmental care, and sustainable and stable maritime jurisdiction and oversight.. • Geoengineering - What are the potential issues relating to influencing the properties of the oceans to mitigate anthropogenic affects of (say) greenhouse gas emissions? What could be the benefits and disadvantages from iron-fertilisation, CO2 sequestration, atmospheric seeding with sulphur particles - and what are the international legal aspects?. Confirmed speakers for 2009 include:. New Ocean ...

According to the International Energy Agency, greenhouse gas emissions from transportation are expected to increase by 120% from 2000 to 2050, largely as a result of a projected three-fold increase in the number of cars worldwide. Without major changes in urban development investments and policy -especially in fast developing countries like China and Brazil-transport emissions are projected to skyrocket, jeopardizing any attempts to stay within a two-degree warming scenario. Beyond greenhouse gases, many transportation system indicators have been moving in the wrong direction, with increasing air pollution, road crash deaths, congestion, and time and money wasted on inefficient mobility.. ITDP has long advocated at the international level to strengthen political will to address climate change, accelerate sustainable development, and increase development finance for low-carbon and equitable transport. In decades of work at the international policy level, ITDP has leveraged hundreds of billions of ...

President Bush today signed into law a Presidents Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief re-authorised by Congress for five years with more than twice the funds used between 2003 and 2008, with a mandate to provide care and support to 12 million people by 2013. The reauthorisation is vastly more than the White House requested, and is the result of a concerted campaign by advocates to extend the scope as well as the volume of US funding for AIDS relief. A total of $48 billion will be available over the next five years, of which $12.6 billion will go towards malaria and TB programmes. $2 billion could go to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria in 2009, a substantial increase in US support. The bill, passed by both Democrat-controlled houses of Congress, removes the controversial requirement that one-third of prevention expenditure go to programmes that promote abstinence and faithfulness. Instead PEPFAR chiefs in countries with generalised epidemics will need to explain to Congress if they do ...

3. Other. 3.1. Opportunity for early career scientists on R/V Marcus G.Langseth cruise. There is an opportunity for students and early-career scientists to sail on the R/V Marcus G. Langseth in July 2012 on a 10-day cruise on the Cascadia continental margin off Grays Harbor, Washington. We will collect approximately 1000 km of 2D seismic reflection data, with the goal of improving knowledge of subduction processes and the location of the downgoing plate boundary. Berths for approximately 12 additional students/scientists will be available. The cruise is scheduled for July 12-23, 2012, though these dates could change up to one week in either direction; applicants should possess sufficient flexibility in their schedule to accommodate this uncertainty and must arrive in port at least one day prior to sailing. Travel funds will be provided to and from the port of departure (Astoria, Oregon). The goal of this call for open participation is to help expand the Langseth user base by providing ...

At this time, AAVSO founding member Stephen Crasco Hunter voluteered to go to Europe as an intermediary for Campbell in order to promote variable star observing. His primary purpose was to meet Grouiller and Lyon Observatory Director Jean Mascart, to explain the value of amateur variable star work, and to encourage the Lyon Observatory to set up an observing program. In addition to his meeting with Grouiller and Mascart in early 1921, he also had a brief meeting with Henri Deslandres, astrophysicist of Meudon, Institut de France at Paris, in the hope of spreading the word to the French professional astronomical community in support of a French amateur association of variable star observers. In June, 1921, Hunter reported to Campbell: "I feel sure also that between your previous correspondence and my recent visit we have started something over there that, properly nurtured, may grow into almost anything, to the greater and broader glory of our modest but persistent efforts here." ...
