Pakistan seeks Asian help in dengue research

Pakistan seeks dengue research collaboration in Asia
WHO/TDR/Crump
[KARACHI] Finding itself scientifically ill-equipped to tackle a
current dengue outbreak, Pakistan is seeking research collaboration
with other Asian countries to improve prevention and diagnosis.

According to Pakistan's National Health Department, as of 21
September, dengue fever had killed over 60 people and affected over
8,000 across the country since its outbreak in the first week of
August.

Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa has approved the sharing of
dengue research data to improve Pakistan's diagnostic capacity,
Hasitha Tisserra, leader of a visiting team of Sri Lankan dengue
experts, told Pakistani health officials in Lahore last week (15
September).

The two countries would sign an agreement next month (30 October), to
allow Sri Lankan scientists to train Pakistanis in dengue diagnostics,
Javed Akram, chief executive, Government Jinnah Hospital, Lahore, told
SciDev.Net.

Sri Lanka's three decades of experience in tackling dengue will help
Pakistan overcome gaps in scientific knowledge on vector control and
diagnostic technology, he said.

Akram said, "Pakistan has also sought short-term and long-term
research collaborations on dengue vector control and prevention; and
scientific exchange programmes with other Asian countries such as
Malaysia and Thailand."

These would cover studies on dengue-spreading mosquito strains and
patterns of spread of the disease, he said.

At a conference on dengue in Islamabad, this week (19 September),
Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani called upon the WHO, Global
Fund for AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, UNICEF and the United States
Agency for International Development to help his country draw up a
national dengue policy.

Such a policy may draw upon expertise from other Asian countries
battling dengue, including India.

Zafar Iqbal, chairman, Sheikh Zayed Hospital, Lahore, observed that
Pakistan urgently needed to "plug the yawning diagnostic technology
gap" and import advanced diagnostic kits.

One hurdle in improving diagnostic capacity, he said, was lack of
funds to set up modern diagnostic labs.

Chairman of the Pakistan Science Foundation, Manzoor Soomro, blamed
the "absence of an efficient surveillance system employing the latest
technologies" for the rise in dengue cases.

Soomro commented that improving dengue surveillance was missing from
the planned research collaborations.

Scientists from Pakistan and Sri Lanka, he said, must conduct joint
research on developing a viable, adaptable surveillance system, given
the potential for future outbreaks with greater severity.

"Poor access spreading mother to child HIV infection"
http://www.washingtonbanglaradio.com/content/93355311-poor-access-spreading-mother-child-hiv-infection

Fri, 09/23/2011 - 04:17 Blog Entry News - India & South Asia


Kolkata, Sept 22 (BNS) HIV positive women who are pregnant do not have
adequate access to Prevention of Parent To Child Transmission (PPTCT)
in India, said an expert working in the field.

"HIV positive pregnant women mostly do not have access to Prevention
of Parent To Child Transmission (PPTCT) and still face discrimination
which puts the life of both the mother and infant at risk", said Daisy
David, Advocacy Associate, World Vision India (WVI), a humanitarian
body.

She said "the major issue affecting people infected and affected by
HIV and AIDS include access to medicines, Parent and Child
transmission and also care and support for children."

Spreading awareness about AIDS, World Vision India (WVI) in
association with People Living with HIV and AIDS (PLHIV) held an
interactive session to discuss issues related to children suffering
from AIDS in West Bengal on Thursday.

The interactive session where many representatives from different Non
Governmental Organization (NGOs) had participated was held at the
Press Club, Kolkata.


The forum, discussed the need for implementation of government laws
and facilities for people suffering from AIDS at the grass root level.

Supporting David's statement, a participant from Howrah said
"recently a pregnant woman suffering from AIDS was denied treatment in
one of the hospitals even after laws have been passed to provide
facilities for these people."


"We see many such cases on a regular basis where hospitals give lame
excuses for not treating the HIV AIDS patient," he said.

"Counselling is very important as it will provide psychological
support to the patient", Daisy David said.

West Bengal which shares international borders with Bangladesh,
Bhutan and Nepal witnesses large scale migration, both in and out of
the State which one of the reasons for spread of HIV AIDS.

Trafficking and sexual exploitation too contribute to the spread of
HIV in the state.


Children of these group as well as adolescents and youths are facing
increased risk of malnutrition due to poverty and exposure to drugs
and its abuse, informed Daisy David.

Reni Jacob, Advocacy Director-WVI, said "the PLHIVs in this country
are not legally protected which means we do not have a legislation/Act
passed yet to protect their rights."

"The greatest need of the day is to pass the bill incorporating all
the provisions necessary for the protection of their rights," Jacob
added.

National AIDS Control Organization (NACo) in West Bengal should be
strengthened, said one of the participants.


Another participant form Hooghly said, "The treatment given to AIDS
patient is pitiful."

"The A, B, C category that NACO has come up with is not acceptable as
it leaves out other victims of AIDS."

Funding was a major problem faced by these NGOs. "Funds are irregular…
sometimes it takes 6 months to get funds. It is hard to work in this
situation," said an NGO representative.


Another participant form Darjeeling said funds is a major problem for
drug addicts to go for rehabilitation.

"The social stigma and discrimination faced by him and his family
hinders his treatment," she added.

WVI along with the participants voiced their concern for lack of
proper treatment for AIDS patient. They urged the government to create
a platform for Greater Involvement of People Living with HIV/AIDS
(GIPA) both at the State and National level in accordance with the
Paris Declaration, 1994.

Migrants Abused at the EU Border  
Migrants Held in Degrading Conditions in Overcrowded, Unclean Cells

The 50-year-old Georgian woman, crammed in a Greek police station with 97 other migrants in a space designed for 30 said, "You cannot imagine how dirty and difficult it is for me here… It's not appropriate to be with these men. I don't sleep at night. I just sit on a mattress."

Frontex, the agency that enforces the EU's external borders, apprehends migrants on the Greek-Turkey border, transferring them to Greek detention centers where conditions are inhuman and degrading, a new report says.  With a migration crisis in North Africa, pressure on the system is growing.

In one detention center, Human Rights Watch found unaccompanied children and unrelated adults in overcrowded cells. Sewage ran on the floors; the smell was hard to bear. Greek guards wore surgical masks when approaching the cells.

Conditions like these led the European Court of Human Rights to rule that sending migrants to detention in Greece violated their rights. But Frontex sends guards from European countries to Greece, and when they catch migrants, they still put them in these types of degrading facilities.

In the near future, Frontex is set to create a position for a rights officer. The officer should be authorized to refer violations of the court ruling to the European Commission for investigation and enforcement.

Yemen's Forces Gun Down Protesters
Violence Continues as President Tries to Strike Deal for Immunity

Yemeni security forces opened fire on anti-government demonstrators this week in Sanaa and Taizz, killing dozens and wounding hundreds in the worst violence since the protests began in January.

Witnesses told Human Rights Watch the attacks began Sunday with officers in Sanaa spraying demonstrators with sewage as they tried to walk across a police barrier. When protesters responded by throwing rocks, the officers fired on them without warning, using rocket-propelled grenades as well as assault rifles and machine guns.

The attacks began days after Yemen's president, Ali Abdullah Saleh, resumed negotiations to resign in exchange for immunity from prosecution for any crime. The deal, backed by the United States and the European Union, would extend to Saleh's relatives, including those that control the security forces.

Negotiators should ensure that a resignation deal does not include immunity from international crimes, including crimes against humanity – especially in light of the unjustified deadly attacks on largely peaceful anti-government protesters.

Since demonstrations against Saleh's 33-year rule began, Human Rights Watch has confirmed 219 killed by pro-government gunmen, although we believe that number to be considerably higher. More than 1,000 protesters have been wounded from live gunfire or teargas, often fired from expired US-manufactured canisters at close range.

Punjab to bring NRIs info online
http://www.igovernment.in/site/punjab-bring-nris-info-online?utm_source=newsletter-core&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=20110923

It is aimed at checking increasing cases of fraud and other property
related cases involving NRIs in the state
Submitted on 09/22/2011

By Hemant Singh
Chandigarh: With the increasing cases of fraud and other property
related cases involving NIRs in the state, Punjab government has
decided to put the details of about 15 lakh NRIs belonging to the
state online.

The state's information and technology department will execute this
project by creating a database of NRIs in the next six months. Along
with personal details, their photographs will also be put online.

"We have already begun compiling the data of NRIs living in various
countries like the UK, the US, Canada, Australia and in other European
countries," an IT Department senior official said.

During the last few months, many cases of property frauds and marriage-
related disputes, involving NRIs, have surfaced in Punjab. In many
cases, it was difficult to track them because of distance problem. But
soon their details will be available online which would help in
probing NRI related cases, the official added.

Besides, the Punjab Police has also made a special page on NRIs on its
website, wherein they can contact it to lodge their complaints.

"The NRIs can contact us online. Through a webpage dedicated for them
on our website, they can speak with senior officials through the video
conferencing facility and lodge a complaint online," SAS Nagar SSP GS
Bhullar said.

An aggrieved NRI can access the website in for video conferencing
every Monday between 4.00 to 5.00 PM. The complaint can also be
registered through e-mail.

Gandhi Camp for Adolescent Youth

held in Olema, USA

The Gandhi Camp for Adolescent Youth (age 10-17) was held from August 6-13, 2011 at Vedanta Retreat Centre, Olema, USA. The Gandhi Youth camp gave an opportunity to youth to learn Gandhian principles of truthfulness, tolerance and self-help.

The camp was conducted by Dr. S. N. Subbarao, Gandhian philosopher and hosted by India Community Centre (ICC).

        The main purpose of camp was to help young to inculcate the values of Self-help and self-discipline; Friendship and mutual respect; Service to others; Truth and honesty; Non-violence and love; Respect for the environment; Integrated physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual development.

        The camp schedule includes the meditation, sharmdan (karma yoga), games and yoga. All religion prayers and songs are daily rituals of evening.  The evening discussions include various topics like how to make world to better place to live etc.  On last day of camp, camper presented the culture programme.

Dheyani Malde, a camper, share experience "When I first arrived, I was filled with nervousness and worries. I did not know anyone and what the camp was like. After the first day had passed, I became more confident and enjoyed myself. This has been one of the best camp experiences I have ever had to date."

        Dheyani further add "These days were long, but we were kept busy. From dusk to dawn, there was something to do. Although I had to wake up early in the morning, a session of meditation wore my body and mind up. During meditation, all the campers would sing prayers of various religions led by Subba Rao ji. Yoga is a time of relaxation and calmness led by Vivek. When I first thought of community service (karmayoga), I thought of hard, never-ending labour. But I learned lots of information about nature and had an interesting experience. The scrumptious meals were deliciously cooked by the fellow campers."

        "Gandhi Camp was a great experience for me. I had lots of fun and didn't have a chance to become bored."

        According to another camper Karunya Venugopal, it is a different kind of camp hence being very interesting and thoroughly enjoyed.

        The community service, which lasts three hours had tasks vary from gardening, raking, trailblazing, and weeding.

Afternoon games give new dimension to play. Yoga stretch muscle of body.

The evening discussions about topics such as what we can do to make the world a better place, provided the space to think to make peace full society where every one can live. It had wonderful experience at Gandhi Camp and strongly recommends this for future world leaders and peace-makers. (ICYO-Info)

India Has the Most Unemployable Population: Report

India has the largest, youngest population in the world. But it is also the most unemployable population as it lacks work skills that can make it employable.

        According to a survey conducted by FICCI-Ernst & Young Paper, even though over 40 million people are registered in employment exchanges, only 0.2 million get jobs annually. Even startling is the fact that about 80% of the Indian workforce does not possess identifiable marketable skills.

        Equally sad is the fact that the school dropout rate in India touches 56.8% by the time students reach the qualifying examination at the 10th standard which further leads to unemployability.

        The survey found that only 25% of the Indian professionals are considered "employable" by multinationals and the difficulty of employers in India to fill job vacancies has increased to 67% in 2011 compared with 16% in last year.

        It is estimated that over 75% of the new jobs to be created in India will be 'skill-based.' While the country's overall supply of highly skilled labour marginally exceeds demand, there is a shortage of adequately qualified (or employable) people. The study said this was primarily due to the fact that the Indian training institutions are heterogeneous in nature varying in quality of education and training provided by them.

        "60%of India's 1.2 billion people are in the working age group. However, only 10% of the 300 million children in India between the age of 6 and 16 will pass school and go beyond. Only 5%of India's labour force in the age group 19-24 years is estimated to have acquired formal training," said S. Ramadorai, advisor to the Prime Minister in National Skill Development Council.

        Understanding the issues, the government has already started reworking its vocational education framework to be more competitive and acceptable to the world market. Human Resource Development Minister Kapil Sibal said that since there was an acute shortage of labour at Tier 2 and Tier 3. It is anticipated that by 2020, about 220 million students will pass out from school, out of which, about 150 million will not enroll for college education. (Source: DNA)

Delhi ICYM initiated inter-faith dialogue

The Delhi unit of the Indian Catholic Youth Movement (ICYM) organized a first-of-its-kind inter-religious dialogue among the youth in the diocese.

        "It was a training program for youth on inter-religious dialogue," said Father Chetan, Director of Delhi ICYM.

The three-day program began on 16th September 2011 with the aim to provide the knowledge about other religions to Christian youth.

        The priest said that Christian youth these days were not aware about other religions. He added that the response among the youth about the program was very positive. According to Father Chetan, this will help promote peace and brotherhood in the society.
