News: HIV/AIDS: "Africa is too dependent"
http://www.theafricareport.com/index.php/2012013050180398/health/hiv/aids-africa-is-too-dependent-50180398.html
Lawrence Quartey
The Africa Report

ADDIS ABABA - Africa is too dependent on external resources,
especially for the AIDS response and this must change, the Executive
Director of UNAIDS, Michel Sidibé, told the continent's leaders at the
AU summit at Addis Ababa.

"This is a source of great risk and potential instability. The status
quo cannot be sustained - it is time for a new development paradigm
that is developed and owned by the leaders of Africa," he said.

A press release by the New Partnership for Africa's Development
(Nepad) secretariat in Accra on Sunday says Sidibe asked African
governments to take on a greater share of Aids investments in their
countries, since financing a sustainable response to the HIV epidemic
in Africa requires home-grown and innovative solutions.

This comes after a report in November 2011, by UNAIDS, charged with
the international campaign against HIV and Aids, indicated that new
infections were declining sharply[/LINK] as a result of a better anti-
retroviral therapy coverage with the most dramatic increases in anti-
retroviral therapy coverage occurring in sub-Saharan Africa.

The report revealed that the decreasing infection rates were due to
changes in sexual behaviour, increased condom use and people waiting
longer before becoming sexually active with 47 percent HIV+ people now
receiving treatment out of 14.2 million eligible people in low and
middle income countries, but Sidibé maintained that it was high time
Africa took control of the HIV/AIDS situation

Scaling up

An estimated two-thirds of Aids expenditure in Africa comes from
international funding, according to a new UNAIDS study titled "Aids
dependency crisis: sourcing African solutions," which reveals that a
vast majority of life-saving antiretroviral medicines consumed in
Africa were imported from generic manufacturers.

But experts say that whilst the cost of HIV drug regimens have
declined significantly in recent years, they remained high and
unsustainable, and prices must be further reduced to reach all people
eligible for treatment.

Nonetheless, Africa will require between US$11 and US$12 billion for
its Aids response by 2015 and US$3 and US$4 billion more than the
current expenditure, UNAIDS estimates show.

And to attain its zero infection, zero discrimination and zero Aids-
related deaths strategy UNAIDS said in last year's report that it
needed "a scaling up of funding to US$22 - 24 billion in 2015".
However, only US$15 billion was available for the Aids response in low
and middle income countries during the latter half of last year.

Generating revenue

Nepad has suggested that revenue generating sources should include
taxing alcohol and tobacco consumption or the use of mobile
telephones. African leaders could also explore the wider use of "soft
loans" from the African Development Bank.

Having a single African Medicines Regulatory Agency could also
expedite the rollout of quality assured HIV drugs, as well as the
development of centres of excellence in Africa to catalyse the local
production of high-quality HIV medicines and build Africa's knowledge-
based economy.

Africa accounted for 70 percent of the world's new infections in 2010
registering about 1.2 million HIV/AIDS related deaths despite the
sharp decline in HIV infection levels.

India world's most dangerous place for girl child
http://www.thenewstribe.com/2012/02/02/india-worlds-most-dangerous-place-for-girl-child/#.TythwMVBmSp

By Jitender Singh - Feb 2nd, 2012

New Delhi: India is the most dangerous place in the world for a baby
girl.

The United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN-DESA)
has revealed that an Indian girl child aged 1-5 years is 75 percent
more likely to die than an Indian boy child, making it the worst
gender differential in child mortality for any country in the world.
As per the data, infant (0-1 years) and child (1-5 years) mortality is
declining in India and across the globe, although not at a fast pace
as was hoped in India. At the same time, the rest of the world is
experiencing a faster fall in female infant and child mortality in
comparison to male child mortality.

This is on account of well established biological factors which make
girls better survivors of early infancy given equal access to
resources. But, sadly world's two most populous countries, China and
India resist this trend.

The survey conducted in 150 countries over 40 years shows that India
and China are the only two countries in the world where female infant
mortality is higher than male infant mortality in the 2000s.

Girls are widely regarded as a burden to Indian families who fear the
high costs of their weddings and resent spending money on their
education only for them later to leave the home to marry.

Many women abort pregnancies when they believe they will deliver a
girl, often under pressure from their husbands or in-laws who favour
boys.

The number is 122 male infant deaths for every 100 female infant
deaths in the developing world as a whole. In the neighboring
countries like Sri Lanka the number is 125 and 120 in Pakistan.

Elderly Prisoner Numbers in US Soar
Prison Officials Ill-Prepared to Run Geriatric Facilities
The most rapidly growing group of people in US prisons are men and women older than 55. Elderly prisoners often cannot readily climb stairs, haul themselves to the top bunk, or walk long distances to dining halls. They are more likely to suffer from incontinence, dementia, or chronic – and sometimes terminal – illnesses, and to need special treatment.
Yet prison officials are hard-pressed to address the mounting needs of these prisoners or provide them with appropriate housing, a new report says.
Human Rights Watch found that the number of prisoners age 65 or older grew at an astonishing 94 times the rate of the overall prison population between 2007 and 2010. Long sentences mean that many current prisoners will not leave prison until they become extremely old, if at all.
But older prisoners incur medical costs that are three to nine times as high as those for younger prisoners. Most prison officials are not prepared to handle this vulnerable population, as they grapple with strained budgets, prison architecture not designed for common age-related disabilities, limited medical facilities, and lack of support from elected officials. The result is a situation where human rights violations become all the more difficult to avoid.

Saudis Arrest Praying Christians
Ethiopian Christians Abused in Prison and Set to be Deported
Thirty-five Ethiopian Christians had gathered to pray during the advent of Christmas, in the home of one of the Ethiopians, when police burst in and arrested them.
The men and women remain in prison and have been told they will be deported, including those with valid residency papers.
Of those arrested, 29 were women. When they were jailed, the women were forced to strip and were subjected to a body cavity search. Officers kicked and beat the men in prison, and insulted them as "unbelievers."
The Ethiopians, speaking via telephone from prison, said that about 10 days after being arrested, some in the group were taken to court, where they were forced to affix their fingerprints to a document without being allowed to read it. Officials told the group that they were being charged with "illicit mingling" between unmarried people of the opposite sex.
In October, Saudi Arabia, together with Austria and Spain, founded the King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz International Centre for Interreligious and Intercultural Dialogue, located in Vienna.
The Saudi government should start interreligious dialogue by ensuring toleration of freedom of all religions at home.

Can scholarships be taken away if you get married during college?

Buzz It

I know federal grants and ad would be taken away. But would most scholarships such as the Tennessee Hope Scholarship, Departmental Scholarships at the college, or academic scholarships (that have nothing to do with your financial status) be able to be taken away?

You don’t automatically lose federal aid just because you got married. Your aid would be calculated differently based on your and your spouse’s income and assets. Non need based scholarships would not change unless they are specifically targeted towards unmarried students….and I think that would be illegal discrimination.

TN Hope scholarships and all academic scholarships that I know of are not taken away based on marital status. Federal aid is based on need and married people can still receive if they show need.

Scholarships are in the power of the grant givers. Check their requirements. Most scholarships have nothing to do with marriage, because it is applied only to school purposes: fees, books, etc.

For scholarships, please ask your school, or get your own through here:
