News from WHO

World Health Day, April 7

Deans, Faculty, Students, come join WHO Day

 

Each year WHO selects a very important global problem of health and targets this on World Health Day. This year World Health Day is April 7, the day of the founding of WHO.  As presented on the WHO web site, this year the target is

"Antimicrobial resistance: no action today, no cure tomorrow"

"Antimicrobial resistance is not a new problem but one that is becoming more dangerous; urgent and consolidated efforts are needed to avoid regressing to the pre-antibiotic era.
On World Health Day 2011, WHO will introduce a six-point policy package to combat the spread of antimicrobial resistance.

Antimicrobial resistance and its global spread

We live in an era in which we depend on antibiotics, and other antimicrobial medicines to treat conditions that decades ago, or even a few years ago in the case of HIV/AIDS, would have proved fatal. When antimicrobial resistance - also known as drug resistance - occurs, it renders these medicines ineffective. For World Health Day 2011, WHO will be calling for intensified global commitment to safeguard these medicines for future generations. Antimicrobial resistance - the theme of World Health Day 2011 - and its global spread, threatens the continued effectiveness of many medicines used today to treat infectious diseases.
For World Health Day 2011, WHO will call on governments and stakeholders to implement the policies and practices needed to prevent and counter the emergence of highly resistant microorganisms. "
This comes directly from the WHO world health day web site.  http://www.who.int/world-health-day/2011/en/ . You can check at WHO in your country as to what events might be associated with World Health Day in your region and country.
Many Medical, public health, nursing schools and other health professional schools join in celebrating World Health Day, and we would encourage you to also. You can go to the WHO site as they have brochures, fliers and slides for World Health day, each one are beautifully done.  Celebrating World Health Day is important to make your faculty and students know about global health, and to infuse more knowledge about Global Health into your programs.
Sadly, often World Health Day is not celebrated.  We think it is important that those of us interested in Global Health to join this effort and our Supercourse team can help.  Please distribute this newsletter to tell your faculty, students and friends about World Health Day.
The beautiful thing about learning is nobody can take it away from you. (B.B. King)

Supercourse and World Health day

We too want to help with World Health day.  If you are interested in teaching about antimicrobial resistance, on World Health day the Supercourse has excellent lectures:

Japan nuke plant leaks radiation into groundwater
http://news.in.msn.com/international/japanquake/article.aspx?cp-documentid=5095675

Tokyo: Radiation exceeding government safety limits has seeped into
groundwater under a tsunami-crippled Japanese nuclear plant, according
to the operator, but has not affected drinking supplies.

The leak announced late Thursday could pose a long-term problem,
however, and at the very least it is a concerning indicator of how far
Tokyo Electric Power Co. is from bringing its plant under control.
Workers have been battling to stabilize dangerously overheating
reactors after cooling systems were knocked out in the March 11
tsunami.

TEPCO has increasingly asked for international help in its uphill
battle, most recently ordering giant pumps from the U.S. that were to
arrive later this month to spray water on the reactors.

The groundwater contamination -- 10,000 times higher than the
government standard for the plant -- is the latest setback at the
Fukushima Dai-ichi complex, where leaks have already contaminated food
and hindered workers' ability to bring the plant under control.

Iodine-131, a radioactive substance that decays quickly, was found
nearly 50 feet (15 meters) below one of the reactors, according to
TEPCO spokesman Naoyuki Matsumo.

  • Ethiopia Offers Olive Branch In Nile Water Sharing Dispute
  • Dollar's Share Of Forex Reserves Near Low: IMF
  • Op-Ed: The Best Alternative To A New Global Currency
_______________________________________________________________________________
 
Significant Gains Made To Combat HIV But Achievements Fragile: UN. "A new UN report released on Thursday found that the rate of new HIV infections in 33 countries is declining with investments in response to the deadly disease making significant gains, but warned that achievements continue to be fragile. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's report, Uniting for Universal Access, comes at a 'critical moment' for the AIDS response, Joint UN Program on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) Deputy Director Mari Ortega said…." [Xinhua/Factiva]
 
AFP adds that "…Ban said there had been many pluses over the past three decades, notably getting AIDS drugs to more than six million badly-infected people in poor countries. But at this point, 'the HIV response faces a moment of truth,' he said. Among the problems he highlighted was 'a wholly unsustainable' rise in costs and a flatlining in resources, which have remained at under $16 billion a year since late 2007. More and more people are becoming infected, which means they will eventually join the numbers of patients who eventually need AIDS drugs, a treatment that has to be taken daily for the rest of one's life…." [Agence France Presse/Factiva]
 
Midwife Shortage Costs Over A Million Lives Worldwide. "Over a million mothers and newborn babies are dying each year from easily prevented birth complications because of a chronic shortage of midwives across much of the developing world, a new report from Save the Children said on Friday. In the world's least developed countries over half of mothers give birth without any trained help and some 2 million women face one of the most frightening days in their life entirely alone. Some 1,000 mothers and 2,000 newborns die every day as a result…." [Reuters/Factiva]
 
Press Association adds that "…the Missing Midwives report shows the discrepancy between the developed and developing world is at its starkest at the moment of birth. In the UK, only 1 percent of women give birth without trained help; in Ethiopia the figure is as high as 94 percent. In the UK - where there are 749,000 births a year - there are 26,825 working midwives, while in Rwanda - where 400,000 babies are born a year - there are only 46. War-torn Afghanistan has one of the highest infant mortality rates, with 52 in every 1,000 births ending in death…." [Press Association (UK)]
 
The Independent writes that "…. 'No mother should face giving birth without help. It doesn't have to be complicated: someone who knows how to dry a baby properly and rub its back to help it breathe can make the difference between life and death. No child is born to die,' Save the Children Chief Executive Justin Forsyth said.  The report warns that unless global political will and funds are pledged to plug the midwives' gap and improve access to healthcare generally, the Millennium Development Goals to cut child and maternal mortality will not be met and mothers and babies will continue to die in shocking numbers…." [The Independent (UK)]
 
Ethiopia Offers Olive Branch In Nile Water Sharing Dispute. "Ethiopia is offering Egypt and Sudan an olive branch in their bitter dispute over sharing the waters of the Nile River. The offer includes possible joint ownership of a huge Ethiopian hydropower project that Egypt has tried to block. Ethiopia's Prime Minister Meles Zenawi launched an attack Friday on powerful interests seeking to prevent construction of the 5,200-megawatt Gibe III dam on the Blue Nile, in the highlands along the Sudanese border.  Traditional funding sources have dried up, largely due to opposition from environmentalists, as well as from Egypt, which depends almost totally on the Nile for its water supply…." [Voice of America]
 
Reuters adds that "…NGOs have been campaigning against some of the dams on environmental or human rights grounds. 'These people will not allow the disturbance of butterflies even if this means millions of people have to be subjected to the deadliest killer disease of all – poverty,' Meles told a conference on hydropower in Africa in Addis Ababa.  Over 400 NGOs led by Survival International signed a petition against the Gibe III dam project. They say that 200,000 Ethiopians who rely on fishing and farming may become dependent on aid to survive if the dam goes ahead…." [Reuters/Factiva]
 
Bloomberg reports that "…Ethiopia has a hydropower potential of 45,000 megawatts, the second-largest in Africa after the Democratic Republic of Congo, according to the World Bank. Under a five-year plan, the country plans to boost power generation to as much as 10,000 megawatts and expand electricity coverage to 75 percent of the population from 41 percent now. [Overall,] Africa needs to invest more than $90 billion a year to address its infrastructure gap, according to the World Bank. 'Hydropower will have to be at the center of Africa's energy future,' Meles said…." [Bloomberg]
 
Dollar's Share Of Forex Reserves Near Low: IMF. "The International Monetary Fund (IMF) said Thursday that the US dollar's share of official foreign-exchange reserves in most member nations ended last year at a near-record low. The IMF, in a quarterly report on forex reserves that notably excludes China, said that 61.4 percent of the reserves of member nations was in dollars on December 31.  The new report covers the foreign reserves of 138 IMF members, who hold 55 percent of the $9.26 trillion in reserves held across the world. China – by far the largest holder of US Treasury bonds – refuses to report the currencies held in its $2.85 trillion of reserves…." [Agence France Presse/Factiva]
 
Reuters adds that "…the euro saw a modest decline in its share of known reserves to 26.3 percent from 26.9 percent and the yen's share rose to 3.8 percent from 3.6 percent. The share of 'other currencies,' which excludes the dollar, euro, yen, sterling and Swiss franc, rose further to 4.4 percent from 4.0 percent in the third quarter of 2010.  Interest has grown in currencies such as the Australian and Canadian dollars in recent years and some central banks have talked of increasing allocation to these currencies as well as the yen. In the fourth quarter of 2009, the share of 'other currencies' in known global reserves stood at around 3 percent…." [Reuters/Factiva]
 
The Sydney Morning Herald writes that "…the fourth quarter data 'supports the notion that central banks are sticking to relatively stable allocations of major currencies (the dollar and euro) rather than pursuing aggressive diversification strategies,' Nomura Global FX Research analysts said in a client note.  The IMF noted that by the end of the fourth quarter, the euro had lost 2.0 percent of its value against the dollar, while the yen gained 2.4 percent…." [The Sydney Morning Herald]
 
Op-Ed: The Best Alternative To A New Global Currency. In an opinion piece published in the Financial Times, Columbia University Professor of Economics Joseph Stiglitz writes, "The international monetary system needs fundamental reform.  And here the G20 leading nations must take the lead.  
We now have a system dominated by holdings of US dollars….In the late 1960s a more limited global currency was created: the SDRs, issued by the International Monetary Fund (IMF)  when enough member countries agree.  The global role of SDRs should be increased, both through new issues and a bigger role for SDRs in IMF lending. New SDR issues could be introduced in times of declines in private capital flows or large falls of global commodity prices.  
In practical terms the G20 should encourage the IMF to issue a significant amount of new SDRs during the next three years, up to a value of $390 billion a year.  New measures to increase the effectiveness of SDRs themselves are also needed.  Eventually SDRs could become the main, or even the only, mechanism for IMF financing.  All of this would enhance global stability, without altering in any fundamental way existing monetary arrangements…."

Wildlife trafficking through post surges in India
http://igovernment.in/site/wildlife-trafficking-through-post-surges-india-39542

There has been an alarming jump in cases of trafficking of wildlife
articles through Foreign Post Offices in India
Published on 03/29/2011
By Richa Sharma


New Delhi: There has been a sharp surge in the trafficking of wildlife
articles through Foreign Post Offices (FPOs) in India with the latest
figures available with the Environment Ministry revealing an over 400
per cent jump in cases in 2009 compared to the past few years.

Sending parcels or even letters containing wildlife articles through
FPOs at New Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai and Mumbai and four sub FPOs at
Bangalore, Ahmedabad, Jaipur and Cochin is perhaps the most common
strategy adopted by the traffickers.

The number of cases has sky-rocketed from 18 cases detected at FPOs in
2005 to 100 in 2009. The figures for 2007 and 2008 were 32 and 85
respectively.

In the past decade, hundreds of postal parcels containing contraband
like ivory articles, tiger nails, horns of bison, deer, wild sheep,
and goats, butterflies, mongoose hair brushes, snakes, lizard skins,
medicinal herbs, seeds, orchids, red sanders wood and sea shells among
others, were detected. Now, the smugglers have switched to letters.

"It is observed that mostly small articles of wild fauna and flora are
traded through FPOs. Dried snakes, fishes, sea shells, dried herbal
plant products and other such small articles can be posted as letter
parcels as these are hardly opened by the customs at the exit points
by default and it avoids any kind of suspicion," an Environment
Ministry official said.

For bigger items, the smugglers take a chance on parcels, on the
chance that even if it is detected, the trail will not lead back to
them.

"Since the booking of postal parcels in a fictitious name is very easy
and content of the parcel is not verified at the receiving counter of
post offices, the illegal traders feel it safe to dispatch contraband
wildlife articles through postal parcels under false declarations," he
said.

Moreover, even if such parcels are intercepted at a later stage by the
law enforcement agencies, it becomes very difficult to trace the
actual culprits in the absence of a genuine address.

The post offices hand over the articles to customs authorities but
there are no provisions regarding identification of the person at the
time of booking letter/parcels.

"Each parcel being booked has to carry a customs declaration form
which in many cases is missing. Declaration of the goods is necessary
for both export and import of materials through FPO. There has been a
change in trend of smuggling of wildlife substances and an analytical
study needs to be done," the Environment Ministry official said.

The Ministry also thinks there is a need for awareness and
sensitisation of field personnel of post offices to check this.

Wildlife Protection Society of India (WPSI) Executive Director Belinda
Wright said there is a need to revamp the postal systems.
