  • Gasping for breath: pneumonia's deadly toll among the hungry children of Kenya

    KENYA, 2017/11/04 The baby lying under a red printed blanket is gasping for air. Her tiny chest is convulsed with the effort of drawing oxygen into her lungs and,as her mother looks on helplessly, her pupils roll back under half-closed eyelids. Sumea, six months old, from Lodwar, Kenya, is suffering from the disease parents here fear the majority: pneumonia. Without treatment, she could be dead in a day or two. In Kenya, one of the worst nations affected by the disease, it claimed the lives of 22,473 people in 2015, almost all under the age of two. But Sumea, the daughter of a businessman, is one of the lucky ones. Her mother, Fatuma Abdi, brought her to hospital at the same time as she began breathing very rapidly, a telltale sign that pneumonia has become life-threatening. In Turkana, a rural county where awareness of the symptoms is poor, her mother’s quick thinking helped save her. Only half of children in sub-Saharan Africa with such symptoms are brought to a healthcare facility.
  • Red Cross 'outraged' over pilfering of Ebola aid millions by its own staff

    GUINEA, 2017/11/04 The Red Cross has admitted that millions of dollars meant for fighting the deadly outbreak of Ebola in west Africa were siphoned off by its own staff. The organisation’s own investigations uncovered evidence of fraud, with additional than $2.1m (£1.6m) lost in Sierra Leone, probably stolen by staff in collusion with local bank officials, according to a statement. In Guinea, a mixture of fake and inflated customs bills cost it $1m. Organisation confirms misappropriation of almost $6m donated to fight deadly 2014 outbreak that claimed additional than 11,000 lives in west Africa.
  • Great strides have been made against disease and poverty

    WORLD, 2017/09/24 IF YOU look beyond the rich West, most of which has been in a funk ever since the financial crisis of 2007-08, the world has had an amazing run. Fully 6m fewer children under the age of five died in 2016 than in 1990. At no time before have so a lot of people been free of grinding poverty and ill health. At no time have women been so unlikely to die as a result of giving birth, or to lose a baby to illness. But the possibility that from presently on long winning streak humanity could be about to trip and fall is preoccupying Bill and Melinda Gates, a pair of self-described “impatient optimists” who run a foundation dedicated to solving the world’s problems. A statement from the foundation published on September 13th suggests that evolution on several fronts may be starting to falter. For a variety of reasons, from demography to American and European politics, Mr Gates fears that campaigns to eradicate extreme poverty, HIV and malaria are going awry. He as well believes that the rich world has not noticed. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has hitherto been characterised by confidence, particularly about the potential for technological innovation to solve the world’s knottiest problems. So the change of mood is significant. Peter Piot, director of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, describes the statement as “a wake-up call”.
