Afghanistan UN joins campaign to immunize 6 million children against polio

As polio continues to be the leading cause of disability in Afghanistan, two United Nations agencies have joined the national government’s nation-wide campaign to immunize more than 6 million children in three days.The Afghani Ministry of Health, with support from the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the World Health Organization (WHO), will tomorrow kick off the first round of National Immunization Days (NIDs) for this year. “For too many years, the world has seen my country struggle with a difficult history, but I am proud to say that through this campaign, we are on the verge of making history that will benefit future generations,” Afghanistan’s President Hamid Karzai said in a statement marking the start of the campaign. “I hope that all communities across Afghanistan will play their part, not least in ensuring that vaccinators can undertake their work safely and without any form of hindrance.”UNICEF said teams of vaccinators will go from house to house to ensure that all children five years and under receive two drops of the Oral Polio Vaccine, regardless of prior immunization status or geographical location. The agency has advised families to keep all eligible children at home from the 15 to 17 of April so that volunteers can reach them.This week’s campaign is particularly critical as April to September is considered the peak season for polio transmission, UNICEF said. Afghanistan is one of the last ten countries in the world where polio remains endemic and is also among the top five priority countries for global eradication. UNICEF and WHO will provide technical assistance, vaccines, and vaccine storage equipment as well as support for the transportation of monitors and the payment of incentives for the vaccinators. More than 30,000 vaccinators, supervisors and other volunteers will also be in the field. read more


Annan recommends threepronged solution to the horrendous situation in Lebanon

“A cessation of hostilities, a political framework, the deployment of an international force, and agreement on a reconstruction programme would give us the beginnings of a way out of this crisis,” he told delegates at a high-level conference in Rome called to discuss the worsening situation.“The death and destruction we have witnessed in the past two weeks, including yesterday’s tragic killing of UN peacekeepers, compels this conference to send a strong message, and to speak with one voice. We must say, to the people of Lebanon, to the people of Israel, to people throughout the wider Middle East, that we will do our utmost to help them find a path towards peace.”During Mr. Annan’s address, delegates stood and observed a minute of silence for those killed, while afterwards the Secretary-General warned there remains “great potential” for further escalation in the conflict and that was why it was most urgent to have an immediate cessation of hostilities.“I call on Hezbollah to stop its deliberate targeting of Israeli population centres. And I call on Israel to end its bombardments, blockades and ground operations. A temporary cessation of hostilities would offer crucial hours and days for essential humanitarian tasks, including the distribution of relief aid and the evacuation of non-combatants and the wounded.”He said an international force would have a vital role to play, helping in the short-term with the humanitarian operation, but over the longer term assisting Lebanon’s Government in implementing various agreements and Security Council resolutions, particularly by helping it extend its authority and disarm all militias.Mr. Annan acknowledged such a force could only operate with the consent of the Government and all “Lebanese parties.” The second part of his strategy calls for a political framework so that a cessation of hostilities can be transformed into “a longer-term process of enduring peace.”“Such a framework should address several issues, including captives, delineation of Lebanon’s borders and a mechanism for monitoring and guaranteeing its implementation,” he said, while stressing that wider regional involvement was needed for any long-term solution.“We must bring our best ideas together into a coherent, achievable package that all parties can endorse… And for solutions to last, it will also require the constructive engagement of the countries of the region, including Syria and Iran.”Turning to the third part of this approach, he called on the conference to commit to a strong economic package for Lebanon because the conflict had seen years of painstaking reconstruction “undone with terrible speed,” and a donor framework was needed to secure funding.The co-chairs of the Rome conference, whose participants included representatives from 14 countries as well as the European Union and the World Bank, expressed their determination in a statement “to work immediately to reach with the utmost urgency a ceasefire that put an end to the current violence and hostilities.”“Calling Israel to exercise its utmost restraint, they welcomed Israel’s announcement of humanitarian corridors to Lebanon, including for humanitarian flights into Beirut International Airport, and within Lebanon that can allow for the rapid delivery of relief aid, and called for their immediate operation,” the statement read.The conference called for an International Force to “urgently be authorized under a UN mandate to support the Lebanese Armed Forces in providing a secure environment,” and there was wide support for a meeting to discuss security assistance for the Lebanese forces.Participants pledged their determination to provide immediate humanitarian relief and also agreed to the convening of an international donor conference to assist with the revival of Lebanon’s economy. read more


New guidelines on global care standards during childbirth issued by UN health

“We want women to give birth in a safe environment with skilled birth attendants in well-equipped facilities. However, the increasing medicalization of normal childbirth processes are undermining a woman’s own capability to give birth and negatively impacting her birth experience,” said Princess Nothemba Simelela, the Assistant Director-General at the UN World Health Organization (WHO) for Family, Women, Children and Adolescents.Worldwide, an estimated 140 million births take place every year and most of these occur without complications for women and their babies.However, according to WHO, over the past 20 years, health practitioners have increased the use of interventions that were previously only used to avoid risks or treat complications, such as oxytocin infusion to speed up labour or caesarean sections. Studies show that a substantial proportion of healthy pregnant women undergo at least one clinical intervention during labour and birth.“If labour is progressing normally, and the woman and her baby are in good condition, they do not need to receive additional interventions to accelerate labour,” added Dr. Simelela.Based on 56 evidence-based recommendations, the new guidelines include having a companion of choice during labour and childbirth; ensuring respectful care and good communication between women and health providers; maintaining privacy and confidentiality; and allowing women to make decisions about their pain management, labour and birth positions and natural urge to push, among others.If labour is progressing normally, and the woman and her baby are in good condition, they do not need to receive additional interventions to accelerate labour — Dr. Simelela, WHO Assistant Director-GeneralEvery labour is unique and progresses at different ratesRecognizing that every labour and childbirth is unique and that the duration of the active first stage of labour varies from one woman to another, the guidelines state that the previous benchmark for cervical dilation rate at 1 cm/hr during the active first stage of labour (as assessed by a partograph or chart used to document the course of a normal labour) may be “unrealistic” for some women and is inaccurate in identifying women at risk of adverse birth outcomes.The guidelines emphasize that a slower cervical dilation rate alone should not be a routine indication for intervention to accelerate labour or expedite birth.Furthermore, while most women want a natural labour and birth, they also acknowledge that birth can be an unpredictable and risky event and that close monitoring and sometimes medical interventions may be necessary.When a medical intervention is wanted or needed, “the inclusion of women in making decisions about the care they receive is important to ensure that they meet their goal of a positive childbirth experience,” said Ian Askew, the head of WHO Department of Reproductive Health and Research.High quality and dignified care for all womenThe UN agency also noted that with more women give birth in health facilities with skilled health professionals and timely referrals, they deserve better quality of care.Estimates show that about 830 women die from pregnancy- or childbirth-related complications around the world every day – the majority of which can be prevented with high-quality care.Additionally, disrespectful and non-dignified care is prevalent in many health facilities, violating human rights and preventing women from accessing care services during childbirth. In many parts of the world, the health provider controls the birthing process, further exposing healthy pregnant women to unnecessary medical interventions that interfere with the natural childbirth process.“Achieving the best possible physical, emotional, and psychological outcomes for the woman and her baby requires a model of care in which health systems empower all women to access care that focuses on the mother and child,” underscored WHO. read more


Ireland Under19s suffer disappointment in Euro semifinal

first_imgRepublic of Ireland 0Netherlands 4THE REPUBLIC OF IRELAND Women’s Under-19 team missed out on a place in the UEFA European Championship final after losing 4-0 to the Netherlands in Mjondalen, Norway.Dave Connell’s team hardly had a chance to settle into the game when they fell behind following a shot from Vivianne Miedema after she controlled a long pass from Danique Kerkdijk.There were only five minutes on the clock when the ball somehow trickled over the goal line. But Ireland rallied back with Lauren Dwyer shooting just wide of the target after a superb solo run. Ireland’s Lauren Dwyer battles for possession with Inessa Kaagman of the Netherlands.

Picking up a slide pass, she blasted in off the inside of the post.Trailing 2-0 at half-time, it got worse for Connell’s team on 48 minutes when Miedema got her second goal of the game when she converted from close range after good play by Kuijpers.It was 4-0 to the Netherlands on 55 minutes when Miedema completed her hat-trick. Controlling a high ball, she turned past her marker before drilling a low shot past goalkeeper Brooke Dunne. Vivianne Miedema grabs one of her three goals against the Irish.

Bringing Cardano and Now: Pensions together is transformational for our group. It is an investment in the future of UK pensions, enabling us to grow and diversify our client base. We believe our combination of pensions risk management and investment skills, together with Now: Pensions’ enormous potential creates a new force across the UK pensions landscape.”Troy Clutterbuck, chief executive officer at Now: Pensions, added: “In Cardano, we have found a like-minded organisation with a long-term commitment to the UK pensions market that offers a great fit with our business. Workplace pensions in the UK are gathering greater momentum as the auto-enrolment regime matures. Being part of the Cardano Group will bring significant benefits for our clients and members, giving us a fantastic platform to reach our full potential.”Nigel Waterson, chair of the trustee at Now: Pension Trust (NPTL), said: “This is an exciting time in the development of Now: Pensions.

Netflix Tweets Creepy Teaser for Upcoming Thriller Series The OA

first_imgSo what is the actual show? Well, let’s take a look at the trailer and see if we can figure out what it’s about.Trust the unknown. @The_OA. Friday.— Netflix US (@netflix) December 12, 2016It doesn’t give us a whole lot of information, but is anyone getting a slight Stranger Things vibe from that? With lost children, secret experiments and a hint of the supernatural, this may be just the series to tide us over until the Duffer Brothers finish season two. Anyway, all we know for sure is that a missing girl turns up after seven years. When she disappeared, she was blind, but she is now able to see. It looks like the series will partially revolve around the strange things that happened to her while she was gone.The trailer is full of unsettling imagery and tells us little more than the show’s mysterious social media accounts. If their goal is to creep us out before we’ve even seen a single episode, they’re doing a pretty good job.The OA premieres this Friday on Netflix.— Netflix US (@netflix) December 12, 2016That’s not the only weird thing Netflix’s social media team has done to promote the show. The set up a SoundCloud account consisting of a text-to-speech program reading cryptic phrases. Some are creepy, like “Your children are not your children,” or “This is a dream, but you are wide awake.” Others are comical, sounding like something out of the podcast Welcome to Nightvale (e.g. “Spoiler: Everyone dies,” or “Reach for the stars. You won’t get them, but stretching is healthy.” The OA‘s official Twitter account has been using those Soundcloud files to reply to people tweeting about the show.They’ve also set up an Instagram account whose photos, when viewed together in a grid, form a massive collage. Here’s a small, but potentially revealing part of it. December can be a grim time for those wanting something scary from their TV series. American Horror Story is done for the year, and The Exorcist wraps up this week. After that, it’s all cheerful holiday specials until Syfy’s New Year’s Day Twilight Zone marathon. (They still do that, right?) If you’re looking to indulge your inner Grinch with a little horror this holiday season, it appears Netflix has us covered.The streaming service put out a teaser for their upcoming original thriller series, The OA.

As the business grew from a niche in oncology to other subspecialties, they needed a robust, single platform system that would allow them to become more efficient and achieve Meaningful Use so their radiologists could qualify for financial incentives. In June 2013, Specialty Teleradiology implemented PowerServerTele Plus MU. The new system made it easy for them to achieve MU. Because it captures only the necessary data, there are no additional clicks to the radiologists’ workflow, processes are mostly automated, and reports are generated quickly. In addition to achieving Meaningful Use, Specialty Teleradiology has since enjoyed significant benefits across its facility, such as reduced data entry, elimination of errors, and working worry-free with a real-time database backup. Also, Specialty Teleradiology clients benefit from RamSoft’s PowerServer MU as it facilitates easy access to their patient information through a web-based portal, and provides their referring physicians secure access to patients’ images and reports.RamSoft designed PowerServerTele Plus MU specifically to help radiologists qualify for Meaningful Use and attain specified healthcare IT objectives. The system is a 100 percent Web-based teleradiology solution that streamlines workflow and provides consistent viewing environments for radiologists.Lisa Drazil, Vice president of Specialty Teleradiology, explains the advantages of making the move. “PowerServer Tele MU has made it simple for us to satisfy the requirements of Meaningful Use. RamSoft’s workflow automation helped us achieve Meaningful Use with minimal extra steps for our staff and zero extra clicks for our radiologists,” she says. “RamSoft’s excellent professional services guided us throughout the entire process. Their expertise and knowledge helped us to understand the complexities of the MU program, and how to overcome its challenges. RamSoft was always available for consultation from our initial registration into the program through our attestation and the audits that followed.” “By implementing RamSoft’s Complete EHR Certified PowerServerTele Plus MU, teleradiology providers can achieve MU, and receive financial reimbursements,” says Marilyn Solano, Sales and Marketing Director for RamSoft. “Our PowerServer Tele Plus MU is a complete solution for radiology groups of all sizes.”For more information:, FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | October 07, 2014 Specialty Teleradiology attains Meaningful Use with PowerServer MU By adopting RamSoft’s Complete Certified EHR PowerServer, teleradiology provider Specialty Teleradiology LLC achieves Meaningful Use, cuts costs, improves patient care and radiologists receive incentive money.

Akel says other parties siding with employers as inspection vote postponed again

first_imgAkel on Friday accused ruling Disy of serving the interests of employers after the party sought a postponement, for the second time, of the vote on a government bill that calls for the creation of a unified labour inspection service.Discussion of the bill was postponed again on Friday at the behest of Disy, which had also asked for its postponement when it came up previously before the summer recess. The bill has been languishing in parliament for about a year.Diko and Edek upheld Disy’s request.In a statement later on Friday, Akel MP Andreas Fakondis accused Disy, Diko, and Edek of siding with employer organisations against the rights of the workers.“We express our regret and disappointment about the effort, primarily by Disy, as well as Diko and Edek, to prevent approval of the legislation … siding with the demands of the employer organisations,” he said.Fakondis said the law in questions calls for the creation of a unified labour inspection service that will help tackle undeclared employment but also protect employee rights.“For a year now, with various excuses, the administration is delaying approval of the law,” he said, calling on the government and the parties to take a stance so that people know.Responding to Akel, Edek said it has traditionally taken the stance of agreeing with the request when a party asks for a postponement, especially when it also called for the issue to go back to the House committees.Edek said it was fully in favour of strict controls to tackle undeclared labour, but mainly for establishing a minimum wage in the private sector, working hours, and others, “which other people, for their own reasons and interests, either remain silent or act as though they can’t see.”You May LikeUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndoAngels And EntrepreneursRobert Herjavec Announce Venture Could Make You RichAngels And EntrepreneursUndoDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
