- Meta-Analysis Confirms Benefits Of Statins In Women
Although clinical trials have consistently found a beneficial effects for statins, some critics have questioned the strength of the evidence in women, who are often under-represented in clinical trials. A large new meta-analysis published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology provides the best evidence yet that the relative reductions in events observed in men also occur in women, but doesn't provide evidence about the absolute risk benefit in women. null, responseDetails: Suspected Terms of Service Abuse.

- Letters: Forced to die alone and without dignity
As I read yet another news piece about someone travelling to Dignitas to die (Vicki Wood), I am consumed by sadness (Woman who attempted husband's mercy killing takes her own life in Dignitas clinic, 12 march). Nearly five years ago, my grandfather travelled to Zurich to die. Unable to face months of pain, coupled with physical and mental degradation, he elected to end his life while he could still make the journey. Alone.Ever the gentleman, my grandfather declined the offer of companionship from my father, for fear of his son's potential prosecution. There were no updated guidelines from the director of public prosecutions – to have such clarity would have been a luxury. Instead, my grandfather took his final journey abroad, alone. He ate his last meal, alone. And his last words were uttered to medical staff. I have no idea what those words may have been, or, indeed, how he felt.Too often I hear talk of dignity at work or dignity in life generally, but where is our right to dignity in death? In the eyes of Westminster, my grandfather is simply one of 100; another statistic lost in the reams of data that fills the corridors of Whitehall. But to me, he was a brave man forced to leave his homeland in order to die with dignity.I appreciate the issue is complex, and would be naive to state otherwise, but a sensible resolution is required. How many more Britons have to voyage to Switzerland, before the government seeks a solution? In criminalising assisted suicide, are we not overlooking – undermining? – the right to articulate our own views on life?

Earlier this year, I wrote a profile of Novartis and its chief executive, Joseph Jimenez, in which I detailed some of the issues hurting the company, which has traditionally been one of the stronger drug makers because of its great record of getting new medicines to market.
Prospects for multiple medicines have been dashed by bad clinical trial results. Manufacturing problems hurt its generic and over-the-counter divisions, which include brands like Excedrin, TheraFlu and Triaminic. This September the U.S. patent expires on Novartis’ top seller, the blood pressure drug Diovan, worth $5 billion annually, the biggest expiration the company has faced since being formed by a merger in 1996. Jimenez is unfazed. “If you look at my background in understanding the consumer,” Jimenez says, “it’s not just about marketing. Consumer goods companies have to be very externally focused, looking at their environment and how it’s changing all the time. What I have learned is that this is an industry that is changing so fast and so significantly.” null, responseDetails: Suspected Terms of Service Abuse. Please see responseStatus: 40

Newcastle scientists have been down on the farm, filming on a catwalk for animals to try to spot early signs of future lamenessIn a slightly eerie version of a fashion models' catwalk, veterinary scientists in Newcastle have been filming a succession of pigs strutting about at a farm near Morpeth.The research is part of a project to improve the health of animals on farms worldwide by seeing if signs of possible future lameness can be detected in the way that pigs walk when young.The project is led by Newcastle university whose Cockle Park farm, complete with its grade one listed pele tower, is a major centre of pig studies. A team has camped in the unit with video motion capture filmgear similar to that used to create animation scenes in Avatar, Lord of the Rings and of course Babe, the 1995 epic about a sheep-herding pig.Their work has an official title rich in theory terms: Longitudinal gait development in pigs assessed with a single-plane stereophotogrammetric motion capture method and associations with clinical subjective scores of conformation, gait and osteochondrosis.

- International Women's Day: UK's aid aims to help poorer women | Andrew Mitchell
Our well-spent and targeted international aid can do a lot to improve the lives of girls and women marginalised by povertyLast week I announced changes to how the UK government delivers aid. We said we will work more strategically with our support targeted in fewer countries, refocus programmes on to what works, and offer increased support for international agencies that can prove they deliver results. But key to all of this is improving the lives of those who are too often at the bottom of the pile.I saw this for myself when I visited Rwanda last year, where I met Anne Marie, 46, who has experienced great joy and deep grief in the past two years. In 2009, two of her daughters, Francine and Josiane, died after contracting malaria. There was a medical clinic just an hour's walk away, but Anne Marie did not have the 20p needed for treatment that would have saved their lives.Times have changed for Anne Marie, and her family now sleeps safely under a UK government-funded, insecticide-treated anti-malaria bednet, which cost just £4. But her story is a clear reminder of what well-spent aid can achieve for families in the developing world.According to the UN, six out of 10 of the world's poorest people are still women and girls. To those living in such dire circumstances, International Women's Day might not mean much. However, to those of us in a position to be able to do something about their plight, it should be a sharp reminder of the challenges ahead.Women in the developing world face situations that, thankfully, few of their counterparts in richer countries will ever encounter. In Rwanda, one woman in every 35 dies in childbirth, while in the UK the figure is one in 4,700. Getting pregnant and giving birth is one of the most dangerous things many women in developing count 私たちのよく過ごし、少女や女性私は、英国政府が援助を提供する方法に変更を発表したpovertyLast週取り残さの生活を向上させるために多くを行うことができます国際的な援助を対象とした

- Could There Be a Blood Test For Depression?
Ridge Diagnostics, a company based in San Diego, has presented clinical findings indicating that they may have developed a successful blood screening technique for clinical depression. The blood test works by looking at 10 different biomarkers within a blood sample, then feeds the result into a series of algorithms that develops a "score" for the likelihood of depression.
<blockquote>Ridge's test amplifies that signal by bunching several markers together. The company's scientists screened more than 100 biomarkers to select the combination of 10 for its depression test. These markers are related to systems known to be affected in depression, specifically the metabolism, immune system, nervous system, and hormones produced by the hypothalamus, pituitary gland, and adrenal glands. リッジDiagnosticsは、サンディエゴに拠点を置く会社、それらは臨床的うつ病の成功の血液スクリーニング技術を開発した可能性があることを示す臨床所見を発表しています
- Yemen troops kill protesters in Taiz
Soldiers use live ammunition on protesters demanding removal of President Saleh, killing six and wounding more than 30Yemeni troops have opened fire on crowds of protesters demanding the removal of President Ali Abdullah Saleh, killing six and wounding more than 30 in the second day of clashes in Taiz, witnesses and medical officials said.The bloodshed in the southern city stoked the uprising that has lasted more than a month against Saleh's 32-year rule. The opposition has held continual protest camps in main squares of cities around Yemen, and on Monday new demonstrations in solidarity with the Taiz protesters erupted in several places.The violence began when thousands of protesters marched through Taiz toward Freedom Square, where demonstrators have been camped out. As the march passed the governor's headquarters, troops stationed there blocked the procession, and clashes broke out, with some protesters throwing stones, witnesses said.Troops on nearby rooftops opened fire with live ammunition on the crowd. The marchers then besieged the governor's headquarters, said Bushra al-Maqtara, an opposition activist in Taiz, and other witnesses.At least six protesters were killed and more than 30 wounded, some with gunshots to the head and chest, said Zakariya Abdul-Qader, a doctor at a clinic set up by protesters in Freedom Square. Other doctors at the clinic confirmed the figure.The military has clamped down on the city of nearly half a million, about 120 miles south of the capital, Sana'a. For a second day, tanks and armoured vehicles blocked entrances to the city to prevent outsiders from joining the protests. They also surrounded Freedom Square, containing the thousands in the protest camp and arresting anyone who tried to leave.Saleh's top security official in Taiz, Abd 兵士たちは、6殺害し、30Yemeni軍が大統領アリアブドラSalehの削除を要求するデモ隊の群衆に発砲している以上の負傷、6人を死なせ、で衝突の2日目の30以上が負傷した、サーレハ大統領の削除を要求するデモ隊に実弾を使用してタイズ、目撃者や医療関係者は、南部の都市で流血はsaid.The Salehの32年の規則に反しヶ月以上続いている暴動を煽って

- Letters: Cost dilemmas over expensive drugs
The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence has decided that Avastin is not a cost-effective treatment for advanced bowel cancer (Report, 24 August). It estimates it would cost the NHS about £135m a year to treat 6,500 people at £20,800 per person and the limited extension to life that Avastin provides cannot be justified. Never mind, says the government. This is why we're setting up the Cancer Drugs Fund of £50m to pay for these expensive treatments. But the money won't even fund this one treatment for all its potential beneficiaries – never mind the next wonder drug that comes along.So having rubbished Nice, how will the government decide which drugs will be supported from the new fund? And as the fund won't even cover Avastin for all bowel cancer sufferers, what mechanism will it use to arbitrate on just who out of the 6,500 sufferers will get this treatment and who will miss out? Is this just one more problem of how to allocate scarce resources that he will dump on the new GP consortiums?Iain KittNewcastle upon Tyne• Your survivor Barbara Moss is indeed a remarkable success. But following the logic of your piece, if taking Avastin gave her at least an extra 21 months of disease-free existence, then scores of others do not even benefit from the extra six weeks quoted as the average benefit from its use. I have no objection to the NHS paying for genuinely successful treatments. But until the drug companies agree not to charge for their failures, I can see no resolution to a system that either funds all treatment, failures included, or none. Roche's offer of a risk-sharing scheme, whereby the NHS picks up the bill for the first year and Roche funds treatment thereafter, is perverse. The failures will be dead by then.Dr Jim ParisPreston, LancashireCancerPh 国立保健院は臨。卓越性のためにアバスチンは、高度な腸癌の費用効果的な治療（報告されていませんことを決定した8月24日）

- Letters: Safeguards on the cosmetic surgery industry
The reality is far more complicated than you report (Medical devices and Chinese toys share the same level of safety checks, 6 January). Medical device regulation has a number of classifications. Implantable products, such as breast implants, are in class III, subject to the most rigorous controls. Before a class III device can be sold, manufacturers must seek approval of their design safety data (called a design dossier), which also includes a clinical evaluation.The manufacturer's facilities and quality management system are also subject to inspection and to regular audits by the independent government-appointed bodies, typically every 18 months. The manufacturer is also legally obliged to ensure that any planned changes to the approved design are supported by documented evidence to ensure safety and performance.The French firm PIP may have violated the regulations by using unapproved, industrial-grade silicone and by allegedly falsifying or withholding documents. If these or other allegations are confirmed, ABHI strongly condemns PIP's behaviour and breach of trust. But no system can entirely guard against this type of deliberate abuse. For some time now, and completely unconnected with this case, the Medical Device Regulatory system, has been under review and proposals for a revision are imminent. Manufacturers and authorities are working to improve the legal framework to provide more consistent and comprehensive implementation across all EU member states which will include more efficient vigilance and market surveillance systems.Millions of medical devices are used every day across the EU with very few reports of failure.

- I took secret photos of my abortion to empower and educate women | Anonymous
Thisismyabortion.com shows that the reality of abortion is far from the vile and grotesque images used by the pro-life lobbyRecently, I had an abortion, which I documented with a hidden mobile phone camera and then shared the images on the internet. I chronicled and published my experience on thisismyabortion.com to show what a safe abortion looks like, and to counter the perverse use of dead foetus images used by the anti-abortion movement. My hope is this project will help dispel the fear, lies and hysteria around abortion, and empower women to make educated decisions for their bodies.My mother had an illegal abortion some 30 or so years ago, and almost died from blood loss during the procedure. She spent the remaining months of her recovery in silence in a country where she would have been banished, if not killed, for her actions. Then, a few years ago, my mother shared her secret with me.Soon after, I took a friend to a clinic for an abortion and encountered a mob of anti-abortion protesters waiting by the entrance. Some prayed silently while clutching religious paraphernalia. Others held oversized banners with supersized images of a newborn child, bloody, bruised, and dead. My friend was mortified, and wept as I escorted her into the facility.A year later, I was facing the same procedure. Due to the security risk to patients and abortion caregivers, the clinic had moved down the street and was tucked behind an unassuming cluster of dental buildings. The protesters in turn had moved across the street, but otherwise remained the same.Viewing, again, the horrific graphic images they displayed, I wasn't sure if I was more afraid of being harmed by the anti-abortion protesters or if I was more anxious about the procedure itself.But once past the bulletproof doors to the null, responseDetails: Suspected Terms of Service Abuse.

- Letters: Changing the law on assisted suicide
Today the Suicide Act 1961 is 50 years old. Progressive in its day, it ended the criminalisation of those who attempted suicide. It also introduced an offence of assisted suicide, punishable by up to 14 years in prison. The law, however, recognises that it may not always be in a patient's best interests to prolong their life, and doctors are not obliged to provide treatment that is futile.Mentally competent adults have the right to refuse life-prolonging medical treatment, including the right to make advance refusals of treatment under the Mental Capacity Act 2005. And if doctors consider it clinically appropriate, they can withdraw such treatment without patient consent in the last days and weeks of life. In addition, due to the prosecuting policy on assisted suicide of the director of public prosecutions, a person is unlikely to face prosecution for assisting another person to die if they do so in an amateur capacity and act wholly on compassionate grounds. In other words, medical practice and the application of the law have sidestepped parliament's failure to update the Suicide Act.Such evolution of medical and legal practice is better than no choice at all, but it is no substitute for an updated law that would allow terminally ill, mentally competent adults to choose a physician-assisted death, protected by upfront safeguards. We are where we are because parliamentarians seem frightened of a backlash from a vocal minority who oppose change. But as other jurisdictions have shown, it should not be beyond parliament's ability to enact laws protecting those wishing to prolong life at the end of life, while respecting the choice of others to end their suffering.Sarah WoottonChief executive, Dignity in DyingAssisted suicideEthicsDoctorsguardian.co.uk © Guardian News _NULL_

- Dr Dillner's health dilemmas: should I be screened for breast cancer?
Weighing up the pros and cons of undergoing a mammogramThe dilemma: You might think this is a no-brainer: of course it's best to find out if you have breast cancer as soon as possible. Up to one in eight women get the disease, so surely you'd want to be tested, catch it early and get treatment to improve your chances of survival? But, in fact, while screening may catch the disease early, there's no guarantee.Screening for diseases before they become clinically apparent is only useful if you can improve the chances of survival (or improve quality of life). To do that you need to understand what the disease would do if you left it alone – and not all diseases progress. With a type of tumour called ductal carcinoma in situ, which makes up 20% of the cancers found in breast screening, the tumour is confined to the milk ducts and there is just a 50% of chance it could develop into a full-blown cancer.A recent study from the Nordic Cochrane Centre found that a third of cancer diagnoses made as a result of screening were not cancers. And while the NHS claims that screening saves 1,347 lives a year, Dr Klim McPherson, an Oxford professor in public health epidemiology, said in a letter to the BMJ last week that research showed that the more likely number was 500 lives a year. McPherson added that to prevent one death you would need to screen 1,000 women over 10 years. To throw even more doubt on the subject of testing, a paper in this week's BMJ says that screening hasn't improved mortality rates. Instead, improvements in treatment and healthcare processes were responsible for falls in death rates for breast cancer, and countries experienced the same falls whether or not they had screening.The solution: So how can you decide if screening is for you?

- Undernutrition is more than just a health problem | Lawrence Haddad
We must politicise undernutrition, which is still a major global problem, so that it gets the attention it deservesWe don't often hear the words politics, governance and nutrition in the same sentence. This is surprising. If governance is about a country being capable, accountable and responsive to the needs of its citizens, then undernutrition is a prime example of a problem where we need to look at governance as a whole, and not treat it simply as a health problem.Three key elements of governance are critical to tackling undernutrition: capacity, accountability and responsiveness. Governments need the capacity to co-ordinate action across health programmes, agriculture plans, educational outreach and sanitation infrastructure. They also need to address the fact that accountability around undernutrition is weak because moderate and mild undernutrition rarely manifest clinical symptoms, making it easy to miss or cover up. Finally, the relatively small window of opportunity for action, from conception to two years of age, make responsiveness absolutely vital. These are not mere technocratic solutions, but tricky political investments.How then do we politicise undernutrition so that it gets the attention – and solutions – it deserves? It is still a major global problem: about 30% of all infants in south Asia and sub-Saharan Africa are stunted.I was recently at a Care and Action Against Hunger event that featured two success stories on the politicisation of nutrition, from Brazil and Peru.

- The Abortion Act's paternalism belongs to the 1960s | Sally Sheldon
Women, not doctors, should decide whether they need an abortionThe Abortion Act 1967 was introduced in response to widespread evidence of unsafe illegal abortion and the maternal mortality and morbidity that inevitably result (while many of us are too young to remember the reality of this in the UK, unsafe illegal abortions cause 47,000 deaths worldwide each year). Those fighting for reform in the 1960s painted a vivid and tragic picture of the women they wished to help, listing drug addicts, alcoholics, women who already had several children and who were incapable of coping with another, and those whose husbands were violent drunkards, in prison, or otherwise absent or inadequate. Opponents of decriminalisation took a different view, tending to describe women who might wish to terminate a pregnancy as selfish, irrational, immature and needing to be forced to take responsibility for their actions.Both sides of this highly polarised debate found common ground in the view that women were not the best people to make the important decision of whether to continue a pregnancy. Rather, women should be encouraged into doctors' surgeries, where they might be counselled, supported and, only if the doctor deemed appropriate, granted access to abortion. In the 45 years since it was passed, doctors have tended towards a more liberal interpretation of the Abortion Act, with the result that access to abortion has become easier. However, doctors remain formally charged with making abortion decisions even, as in the vast majority of cases, where the request for abortion is not grounded primarily in medical factors.In abortion, the legal role of the doctor goes far beyond what we would expect for other medical procedures. Elsewhere, the clinician's duties are typically limited to providi null, responseDetails: Suspected Terms of Service Abuse. Please see responseStatus: 40
- Letters: Survival rates and cancer care
Your article confuses mortality and survival rates for cancer (Study contradicts government's criticism of NHS over cancer deaths, 8 November). Mortality is the death rate for cancer. It's a function both of the number of people who get cancer and whether people diagnosed with cancer survive for a defined period. The UK has a good track record on reducing mortality. This is largely related to the number of people giving up smoking over the last 40 years and to cancer researchers discovering better ways of preventing the disease, for example through cervical screening.But mortality rates aren't the best way to assess NHS service performance, as they are so heavily influenced by improvements in prevention. Survival rates are a better indicator as they show how good the NHS is, compared with other countries, in diagnosing and treating people with cancer. It's a fact that cancer survival rates in the UK lag behind the best-performing European countries. A major driver of this survival deficit is that patients tend to be diagnosed later, on average, than patients in other countries, when their cancers are more advanced.That's why Cancer Research UK is working with the NHS to improve early diagnosis. And it's why we're calling on the government to ensure that research discoveries are translated quickly into NHS treatments that will save more lives from this devastating disease.Dr Harpal KumarChief executive, Cancer Research UK• Jonathan Waxman correctly lauds the improvements in NHS cancer care in recent years (Politics is bad for our health, 10 November).

- Breast implant scandal: 3,500 private clinic patients referred to NHS
Government says it will provide free care for 40,000 women fitted with PIP implants but plans to recover costs from clinicsMore than 3,500 women who attended private clinics to be given breast implants made by a scandal-hit French company have been formally referred to the NHS, government figures show.Statistics released by the Department of Health (DoH) on Friday indicate that 3,512 women – 553 in the last week alone – have been referred to the NHS for care following the global scare surrounding Poly Implant Prothèse (PIP) silicone implants.The DoH said that, two months after the scandal first broke in France, more than 1,400 scans had been completed and that, of those women scanned, 120 would be having their implants removed. Sixteen had already had implants removed, it added.The government has said it will provide free care for any of the estimated 40,000 women fitted with the PIP implants, which were found to contain cheap, non-medical silicone. It said it intended to recover costs from the private clinics concerned.The women who had initially gone private but were now coming to the NHS for scans and potential implant removals had been clients of a number of clinics including the Harley Medical Group and the cosmetic surgery provider Transform, the DoH said.Transform initially refused to pay for removals before performing a u-turn and saying that any patient who received PIP implants could have free scans and the offer of removal, although replacement could cost £2,500.The Harley Medical Group, which fitted almost 14,000 British women with the implants, also initially refused to foot the bill. It subsequently said it would remove implants from those who underwent operations in the last 10 years, but only if they had suffered a rupture and had a scan as proof.If impl null, responseDetails: Suspected Terms of Service Abuse.

- TV matters: Choosing to Die
The controversy sparked by Terry Pratchett's documentary showing a man's assisted death is actually about the print media's distrust of TVThere's currently much newspaper fuss about the fact that Terry Pratchett's documentary Choosing to Die, screening on BBC2 on Monday, will show the assisted death of a terminally ill patient called Peter at the Dignitas clinic in Switzerland. This, objectors argue, is the breaking of the ultimate TV taboo, another dangerous blind turn in the moral maze of broadcasting.Yet, as often when a TV show jumps on to front pages, the row is less ground-breaking than it seems. As recently as 12 May, a cancer patient called Gerald was shown at the moment of death in the BBC1 series Inside the Human Body. And as long ago as 1998 the final minutes of Herbie appeared in Robert Winston's The Human Body, although, because the producers were vague about whether we were actually witnessing the threshold breaths, that programme suffered less controversy.Even if the argument is that it is more controversial to screen euthanasia deaths than natural ones – because of the potential illegality and risk of imitation – Pratchett's Peter is not the first to die in this way on TV. In December 2008, the Sky Real Lives channel showed the elective medical death of Craig Ewert. So, if Monday's film does represent a broadcasting landmark, it's the first mercy killing to be televised in Britain on a channel not owned by Rupert Murdoch and, although the third death moment to be screened by the BBC, the first in which that moment is chosen by the patient.The main reason each televised death is treated as an unprecedented breach of taste is that the print media are deeply suspicious of TV both institutionally (rooted in the ancient fear that telly would kill Fleet Street 男のアシストの死を示すテリープラチェットのドキュメンタリーがきっかけ論争は末端の支援の死が表示されますが、テリープラチェットのドキュメンタリーが月曜日にBBC2のスクリーニング、死ぬことを選んだという事実についてTVThereの現在の多くの新聞大騒ぎの印刷メディアの不信。。u200b。。u200b感については実際には病気の患者は、スイスでDignitasクリニックでピーターと呼ばれる

- Living with HIV in Bolivia
Gracia Violeta Ross Quiroga is an HIV ambassador for Tearfund and campaigner for the rights of people living with HIV, particularly women. Ross Quiroga discovered she was living with HIV 10 years ago, when she was 22, and helped to set up the Bolivian network of people living with HIV. It successfully lobbied the government for better access to antiretroviral treatmentLiving with HIV is living with huge uncertainty about the future. It is burying your friends monthly. It is wondering when you will die. It is dealing with stigma, discrimination and ignorance, and a lack of love and support. It is taking precious antiretroviral medications while at the same time many men and women continue to run the risk of contracting HIV by having unsafe sex. It is the indignity of sexual violence and the increased vulnerability that this brings. It is seeing the expansion of HIV in rural areas and among indigenous women. And yet at the same time, it is finding hope in the middle of what can seem like a hopeless situation, finding solidarity, friendship and love in the middle of clinics and hospitals wards.The biggest challenge I see is sustaining the scale of the Aids response in the face of economic hardship and a growing HIV problem. Bolivia depends almost entirely on international co-operation to fund HIV treatment and prevention, such as the Global Fund to Fight HIV and the government of Brazil.There has been improvement since 2005: the number of people living with HIV is relatively stable, more people are able to access drugs than ever before, and efforts to prevent the spread of HIV from mother to child are paying off.But Bolivia is a long way from achieving MDG6. It is very reliant on outside help, and it will be a significant challenge to sustain these hard-fought gains into t グラシアバイオレタロスキロガはTearfundのHIV大使と活動家HIV感染、特に女性と共に生きる人々の権利のためのものです

- 'I know that more power is being handed to GPs. This scares me'
One reader who had an abortion in 2008 recounts her experienceI had an abortion in June 2008 when I was 24. I was with my long-term partner, though we were not living together. I was at the time working part-time, and had depression after my mother's death the year before. My partner was on a minimum wage income, neither of us owned our own home, I was in fact living in a squat, and both of us were substance dependent. For these reasons I decided to terminate my pregnancy; having the baby was never a consideration for me.I 'knew' I was pregnant almost straight away, but didn't confirm it until after I had missed my period. I told my partner immediately and made an appointment with my doctor for that week. I was incredibly lucky to get an appointment so quickly, and also to have a doctor who totally respected my decision to terminate the pregnancy. She was incredibly helpful and supportive throughout.I had the termination at 10 weeks, at a Marie Stopes clinic. My female friend drove me there and was amazing throughout, my partner offered to go but I didn't want him there, it didn't feel right. I was also having difficulties with him and in fact I ended up breaking up with him two weeks after the abortion, for various reasons.Marie Stopes were great. They had to get another of their doctors to give me a scan, which was weird as it was the first time apart from weeing on a stick that someone had confirmed I was in fact pregnant, my original doctor hadn't examined me at any time.I opted for the surgical abortion, as miscarrying in the squat I was living in did not appeal at all, and every member of staff was thoughtful and considerate. I was in and out in a couple of hours. I also had the Anti-D injection as I have rhesus negative blood.

- Living with Aids in Monrovia, Liberia
Julia Mulbah Lysander is HIV and Aids programme co-ordinator at Concern Worldwide in LiberiaLife with HIV in Liberia is devastating, due to extremely high levels of HIV- and Aids-related stigma and discrimination. Many families and communities have non-accepting attitudes and abandon their sick relatives. Poor access to appropriate healthcare, treatment and support are extremely challenging, significantly impacting the quality of life and survival prospects. The widespread poor livelihood conditions make it more difficult for people living with HIV and affected family, especially children, to ensure a nutritious diet.In my experience since 2004, poor access to treatment is the biggest challenge for people living with HIV. The healthcare system collapsed during the civil war, including HIV prevention, care and treatment services. In Grand Bassa county, for instance, there is only one government hospital offering HIV services, such as antiretroviral (ARV) treatment and counselling.Many people with HIV travel for hours on foot or spend up to 1,000 Liberian dollars ($14) to get to the clinic, even though most Liberians live on less than $1 per day. Widespread poverty and lack of livelihood opportunities mean that many cannot afford proper nutrition to supplement their medications, and as a result struggle to comply with treatment regimens.The government, with the support of a range of groups, is working to prevent the spread and impact of HIV and Aids. Accessing the Global Fund is a big step towards achieving this. Since 2006, the Ministry of Health has increased the number of HIV treatment sites, from three in 2006 to 34 in 2011. International NGOs such as Concern Worldwide, working with local NGOs and local government, are making positive strides in areas such as psychoso ジュリアMulbahライサンダーは、HIVとエイズに関連する偏見や差別の非常に高いレベルのために壊滅的なリベリアでHIVに感染してLiberiaLifeの懸念世界のHIVとエイズプログラムコーディネーターです

- Chile communists call for investigation into death of Pablo Neruda
Witnesses raise doubts about poet's death in 1973, including driver who claims he was poisoned by government agentsThe Chilean Communist party has called for a formal investigation into the death of the country's revered poet Pablo Neruda, who died of cancer days after the 1973 coup in which his close friend President Salvador Allende was toppled.Several witnesses have recently raised doubts about Neruda's death, including his driver, who has claimed the poet was poisoned by government agents.Neruda died at the age of 69 on 23 September 1973, 12 days after the coup.

He died in the same clinic where the former president Eduardo Frei was allegedly poisoned in 1981 by six people, including several Pinochet agents, who were charged last year in connection with his death.Neruda's driver, Manuel Araya, has alleged that Pinochet agents injected deadly poison into Neruda's stomach.The Neruda Foundation, which administers the poet's estate and legacy, has said there is no evidence to support the driver's claims.But Guillermo Teillier, the president of the Communist party, to which Neruda belonged, told the appellate court in Santiago that it was a moral requirement to clarify whether Neruda was killed in order to silence his criticism.Teillier cited similar doubts about the deaths of Allende, Frei and the prominent socialist minister Jose Toha, who was found hanged while in military custody.

- Living with HIV in Zambia
Hope Siwale is HIV and Aids coordinator at the Evangelical Fellowship of Zambia, one of Tearfund's partners. She works to prevent transmission of HIV from mothers from to babies, assists Aids orphans, helps people adhere to their treatment and get access to palliative careLife for people living with HIV or Aids in Zambia depends how affluent you are. If you are poor, everyday life is truly challenging. HIV, Aids and poverty are so closely linked. Many people are unable to afford even the basic necessities of life. But more than this, people living with HIV and Aids struggle with challenging emotions – a sense of helplessness, a fear of death. Accessing treatment is also a challenge for many reasons, including the lack of well-trained health workers.From my experience of working with people living with HIV, the biggest challenges are the less visible aspects of accessing treatment: transport to clinics for testing, counselling and collecting medication, and staying well nourished. Thanks to the free provision of antiretrovirals (ARVs), many more people have relatively easy access to treatment. But inadequate nutrition and a lack of transport compromises their adherence to medication. This inconsistency tends to weaken the ARVs' efficacy, increasing the likelihood of opportunistic infections and consequently resistance to the drug. Provision of first-line, free ARVs is already a strain for developing world governments and treating mant people with second-line drugs would make that worse.To reach MDG6, the Zambian government, working with many partners, has helped to create demand for voluntary testing and counselling, and increased access to ARVs. Also, preventing the transmission of HIV from mother to child has been strengthened. Furthermore, ARV syrups for babies have i ホープSiwaleは、ザンビアの福音フェローシップ、Tearfundのパートナーの1つで、HIVとエイズコーディネーターです
- Letters: EU drug trials law
Ben Goldacre raises important concerns about revolving doors and lack of transparency at the European medicines regulator (Bad science, 5 March). The European commission has now referred the case of Thomas Lonngren, who left the to the European Medicines Agency to go into consultancy, to the EMA management board, which will decide what action to take. I recognise Goldacre's wider concerns on transparency. The old system left a lot to be desired. But the legislation has just been revised and full details about drug-safety meetings will be put online, including minutes, and recommendations for decision (including divergent positions). Public hearings will even be held. And as for clinical trials, a public version of the EMA's clinical trials' database goes live this week. There is also due to be an overhaul of clinical trial laws next year, which is an opportunity to resolve any outstanding issues.Linda McAvan MEPLabour European spokesperson on health and rapporteur on pharmacovigilancePharmaceuticals industryEuropean commissionEuropean Unionguardian.co.uk © Guardian News & Media Limited 2011 | Use of this content is subject to our Terms & Conditions | More Feeds

- Liberian Baby J gets a good start in life | Liz Ford
Liberia's NGO-run Kingsville clinic offering pre- and post-natal care shows why healthcare matters and should be kept on the G8 countries' agendaOn the eve of the G8 summit, a baby boy was born in Kingsville clinic in west Liberia.Kingsville is about an hour's drive from Liberia's capital, Monrovia, and I was told it was known as a township. During the civil war, more than 30,000 people descended on Kingsville to escape the fighting, and for years it was in many respects an internally displaced people's camp. Those who didn't leave when the fighting stopped have turned the area into a neighbourhood, and it is now home to more than 20,000 people.The baby boy (we'll call him Baby J because his father excitedly told us his son would be named after Justin Forsyth, the chief executive of Save the Children UK, with whom I was visiting Kingsville) was born at about 1pm on Wednesday, weighing 2.8kg – a good weight I'm told – and there were no complications with the birth. His mother is 33-year-old Serena Gay, who travelled the 9km to the red brick clinic on the back of a motorbike earlier that morning with her sister and her young son, Thomas. She was in labour for about eight hours.After the birth, the midwife advised Serena to breastfeed her son for at least six months, and to return to the clinic in about six weeks to discuss family planning options – Baby J is Serena's sixth child. In the meantime, she was to rest at the clinic for a few more hours before heading home.It sounds like a cliche, but Serena really could be classed as one of the lucky ones. She had pre-natal check-ups at the clinic, which is a government centre run by Save the Children, she was able to get to the clinic to give birth, there were drugs in the dispensary and, crucially, the clinic had a trained mi 前と産後ケアを提供してリベリアのNGO経営キングスビルのクリニックでは、なぜ医療事項を示していますG8諸国。。u0026#39;agendaOnのG8サミットの前夜を維持する必要があります、男の子がキングスビルクリニックで生まれの西のLiberia.Kingsvilleは約ですリベリアの首都モンロビアから時間のドライブは、私はそれは町として知られていたと言われました
- Amref: Why we need a fourth year in Katine
The African Medical and Research Foundation explains why it has decided to extend its development work in Katine for an extra yearRead Amref's budget breakdown and activity plans for year fourIn July 2009, Amref invited a consultant to hold a mid-term review of the Katine project to assess whether the project was on track to meet its objectives. Although largely on track, the consultant's key recommendation after consulting with our partners (community members and government officials) was to extend project implementation for one more year and increase the financial resources available for the project. The recommendation for an extension is not unique to Amref. Many NGOs and donors are familiar with requests for costed and/or non-costed extensions to projects.The question that follows is why does development take so long? By looking back at our experience in Katine and in other projects we're implementing around Africa, we hope to shed some light on the complexity and realities of doing development in settings like Katine.Working in remote and impoverished settingsAfrica is overwhelmingly rural. Most people live in towns and villages, far away from the capital cities where health services tend to be concentrated. Acute poverty and chronic poor health make these communities some of the most vulnerable in the world. A lack of basic infrastructure (schools, health centres, accessible water sources, roads and available transport) is common in the areas in which we work, leading to a sense of isolation and exclusion from mainstream development.Katine is one example of our work, but there are others. We work with pastoralist communities in Ethiopia and Kenya, training health workers among their communities and establishing new mobile health clinics on their traditional migra アフリカの医学研究財団なぜそれが余分なyearRead Amrefの予算の内訳との活動計画を1年fourIn 2009年7月Amref Katineプロジェクトへの中期的な評価を保持するためのコンサルタントを招待Katineでの開発作業を延長することを決定したことを説明かどうかは、プロジェクトの目標を達成する軌道に乗って評価する

- Men off the hook with HIV gel | Paul McNally
A new gel attempting to prevent the spread of HIV may be used to pander to male irresponsibility over safe sexA new vaginal gel was announced at the international Aids conference in Vienna last month. The gel contains 1% of an antiretroviral drug called tenofovir, which a recent study said could cut down the spread of HIV infection in women by 39%. This scientific development is important, and I don't want to undermine the technical achievement – it is going to save a serious number of lives. But it represents an opportunity for HIV-ravaged countries to wash their hands of how men deal with sex. The standing ovation at the Aids conference leaves behind a fear that we're about to abandon the work on changing attitudes towards sex, and in turn how women experience sex as well.The goal of the gel was to accommodate women who are unable to negotiate condom use. According to a study by UNAids, most of the world's women are in this position. South African health minister Aaron Motsoaledi said he would flag the gel's clearance into clinics to be fast-tracked, an approach erring on the side of damage control: the image is of a woman down on the floor being kicked and now we have given her some armour, with a subtle acknowledgment that we are all powerless to stop the kicking.There are legitimate reasons as to why Aids claims the lives of 1000 people a day in countries such as South Africa: an economic gap between the genders, shame of infection, inconsistencies in public policy and lack of healthcare infrastructure. Yet the excitement around the gel's existence is a tacit endorsement that male enjoyment of sex is beyond reproach, and that he can not be taught how to practice safer sex. Isn't the joy around this medical triumph partly fuelled by a relief that we won't have to wr 新しいゲルは、HIVのまん延を防止しようとする男性の無責任な安全sexA新しい膣ゲル上で迎合するウィーン国際エイズ会議で先月発表された使用されることがあります
- Private clinics in Africa to sell essential malaria drugs at affordable prices
Parents of children with malaria are forced to buy cheap but ineffective drugs from private stores because of the failures of the cash-strapped public sector - but subsidies from donors will now make the best treatment affordable.In an ideal world, a mother living in a malarial part of Africa would be able to go to her local government health clinic and get the best possible treatment for her sick baby. In practice, as I discovered when visiting the development project in Katine, northern Uganda, that the Guardian supports, there are frequent stock-outs in the public health facilities.Sometimes she doesn't even bother going to the clinic - she heads for the familiar local drug store, where they sell her cheap drugs, like quinine and chloroquine, which no longer work very well because of resistance. The drug shops don't have what she really needs, artimisinin combination therapy - and she couldn't afford it if they did.So it's great news that this reality has been recognised. The private clinics where 60% of people buy their malaria medicines are going to get subsidised supplies of artimisinin combination therapy (ACT). The Global Fund to fight Aids, Tuberculosis and Malaria, has just announced that six manufacturers - a mix of big pharma and generics - have signed deals to provide good quality ACT to the private sector in eight countries.The price will be subsidised massively through an arrangement called the Affordable Medicines Facility-malaria. Importers and others involved have promised to pass the savings down the line to make sure that the drugs are affordable for families who need them. At the moment, ACTs are only 5% of the malaria drugs bought in private stores. But the older, ineffective medicines need to be driven out of the market, says the Fund.The Clinton マラリアの子供の親は、資金繰りが苦しい公共部門の故障のためのプライベートストアから安くて効果の薬を購入することを余儀なくされます - しかし、ドナーからの補助金は現在最良の治療affordable.In理想的な世界では、母親の生活になるアフリカのマラリアの部分は、彼女の地方政府の診療所に行って、彼女の病気の赤ちゃんのために最良の治療を受けることができるでしょう
- Porn actor tests positive for HIV in California
Two companies suspend filming as porn actor's partners soughtA porn actor has tested positive for HIV at a California clinic, setting off a scramble to track down partners who may have been exposed, and spurring two major production companies to suspend filming.The actor was a patient of the Adult Industry Medical Healthcare Foundation, a San Fernando Valley clinic that caters to actors in the multibillion-dollar adult entertainment industry. The actor's identity and gender have not been released.A clinic spokeswoman, Jennifer Miller, told the Los Angeles Times that efforts were under way to notify individuals who may have had sexual contact with the actor.Wicked Pictures and Vivid Entertainment told the Times that they stopped production as a precaution when the positive test was revealed.Los Angeles County public health officials and state occupational health officials have said the widespread lack of condom use on porn sets puts performers at risk of contracting HIV and other diseases. Major adult film producers, including Hustler's Larry Flynt, have spoken out against the use of condoms in porn because viewers find them a turnoff.Last year, a woman tested positive for HIV immediately after making an adult film, and in 2004, an HIV outbreak affecting several actors spread panic in the industry and briefly shut down productions at several California studios.Porn actors must test negative for HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases within 30 days of going to work on a film.State workplace safety officials are considering strengthening rules to specify the use of condoms in the adult entertainment industry.The president of the Aids Healthcare Foundation, Michael Weinstein, said his organisation had been advocating a tightening of the rules.He said the latest case w 両社は、公開されている可能性がありますパートナーを追跡するためにスクランブルをオフに設定すると、役者のパートナーsoughtAポルノ俳優は、カリフォルニア州のクリニックでHIV陽性がポルノ撮影中断してfilming.The俳優を停止する2つの主要な生産会社に拍車をかけていた患者アダルト業界医療ヘルスケア財団、数十億ドル規模のアダルトエンターテインメント業界の関係者のニーズに応えるサンフェルナンドバレークリニックの
- Polio vaccines: extra government funding comes with strings attached| Sarah Boseley
Will David Cameron's idea to leverage extra funding for polio eradication work in a recession? David Cameron pledges £40m for polio vaccines at DavosBritain is to double the amount of money it contributes to the effort to stamp out polio, from £20m to £40m a year over the next two years – but unusually, it comes with strings attached.The increase in funding will only be paid on two conditions. The first is in keeping with the international development secretary's stick-and-carrot aid philosophy that says that incentives to better practice must be built in and results measured.Countries will have to strengthen their routine immunisation programmes – which means improving the work of clinics and outreach teams so that more children receive basic vaccinations, such as measles and DTP (diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis, or whooping cough).But the second condition is unusual. The extra £20m a year will only be paid if other countries or organisations put in more cash. Britain will pay £1 for every £5 contributed by others. The idea is to leverage extra funding from countries that might be thinking of cutting back on their aid spending in recession. If it works, it is a triumph. If it doesn't, the polio eradication effort will be short even of the British contribution.The idea is not original. The US pledged to contribute a third of the funding for the Global Fund to fight Aids, TB and Malaria, which put pressure on the EU and other donors to step up their contributions. It did have some of the desired effect, but that was before the financial downturn.AidPolioSarah Boseleyguardian.co.uk © Guardian News & Media Limited 2011 | Use of this content is subject to our Terms & Conditions | More Feeds

- Publishers cut off doctors' free access to medical journals in poor countries
Wealthy publishers of the world's most important medical journals are accused of destroying an agreement to allow medics in poor countries to get online access for freeWhat a world of possibilities must have opened up for a hospital doctor or a medical student in Bangladesh or Kenya when the World Health Organisation concluded an agreement with publishers in 2001 to put the world's most important, respected and groundbreaking medical journals online for free. Suddenly the boundaries were down. A doctor in downtown Nairobi might have a clinic with crumbling walls and precious little equipment, but he had access to the same cutting-edge knowledge as any medic in New York or London.Until now. Of late, it seems that commerce has trumped altruism. HINARI, the Health InterNetwork for Access to Research Initiative that the WHO set up, appears to be falling apart. Several major publishers, including Elsevier, owner of the Lancet and Lancet Infectious Diseases, which run so many important papers on health in the developing world, and others withdrew free access from Bangladesh at the beginning of this year. Kenya and Nigeria have also lost free access. The WHO, not keen to let on that its laudable initiative was failing, has now revealed that restrictions have been imposed in 28 of the 64 poorest countries in the world. As with the free trials offered by online DVD rental companies, the period of grace has run out and it's time to pay. Except that these universities and medical schools don't have the cash.Doctors and researchers in the UK are appalled to learn that Bangladesh has been told it will no longer get free journal access from Elsevier. The charge is being led by Richard Smith, former editor of the British Medical Journal, who helped set up HINARI.

- Costly life-saving drugs: you have to draw the line somewhere | Ben Goldacre
The press reported Avastin's 'life-saving properties' with an anecdote about one person, totally ignoring the treatment's realityFor simpletons and amateurs, there are good research methods and bad research methods. In reality, different tools are valuable in different situations, and sometimes even very tiny numbers of people can give you a meaningful piece of information: even an anecdote can be informative.For example, if you produced a research paper about just two people who had gone into space, in a rocket or in a space shuttle, and then an extra eye had physically opened in the centre of their forehead, I would be concerned. That's because going into space is a very rare lifestyle risk exposure: maybe 1,000 people in total. And I've never seen a third eye physically open in the centre of someone's forehead.In this context, even though there are just two anecdotes, even though they are unsystematically gathered, it's still interesting information, because the exposure and the outcome are both very rare, and because this is the first information available on the issue. I would want to look into it more carefully, and more systematically, but these anecdotes are still useful evidence.That was a special case. This week the newspapers were filled with stories about The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence's (Nice's) recommendation not to fund Avastin, a bowel cancer drug that costs £21,000 a patient, in draft guidance.This drug has been studied in a large randomised trial of 1,401 patients receiving either chemotherapy with Avastin or chemotherapy with placebo.The trial isn't perfect – no trial is, you can read the details online – but it gives the best estimate of the true benefit of this drug, and overall, it shows Avastin extends survival from 19.9 マスコミは一人の逸話とアバスチンの。。u0026#39;救命プロパティが。。u0026#39;は、完全に治療のrealityForの単純さとアマチュアを無視して報告し、良い研究方法と悪いの研究方法があります

- John Wagstaff obituary
My former colleague John Wagstaff, who has died aged 92, was one of the earliest medical officers to be parachuted into France and to cross Pegasus Bridge on D-day. A member of the 6th Airborne Division, he saw action in the Ardennes and participated in the crossing of the Rhine. He then served in Palestine, experiencing the attack on the King David hotel on 22 July 1946.Perhaps what best demonstrates John's self-effacing character is an incident in the Ardennes recorded by his fellow serviceman LJ Carrier. It relates to a time, early in 1945, when the German advance had been halted, but they sought to cover their retreat with defensive minefields.While attempting to cross one such minefield carpeted in fresh snow, a member of the patrol of 22nd Independent Company Paras was severely injured when treading on a mine. The corporal in charge sent for medical help and a mine detector, and then set out to aid the wounded man. In doing this, the corporal was injured, as were two of the RAMC medical orderlies who arrived subsequently to help. Thus, four men with severe leg injuries were now lying trapped in a deadly minefield hidden under snow.It was at this stage that John arrived. After ordering no one to follow him, he entered the minefield, treading in the footprints left by the wounded men, and tended to each in turn. John then remained with the furthest man, until all the mines in the vicinity had been located. Mines were discovered on each side of the wounded men, including one directly behind John. Through his courage, the casualties survived.John was born in London, at Haberdashers' Aske's school, where his father was headteacher. He read medicine at Emmanuel College, Cambridge, and did his clinical training at the London hospital, graduating in 1942.

- Letters: The right to a home birth in Hungary
Your report (Handcuffed, a midwife is led into court, 23 October) is a shocking indictment of the Hungarian maternity system. Agnes Gereb, a qualified obstetrician, had her own third child at home just before she held the first home birth conference in Hungary about 20 years ago. In 2003 a group of us who attended and spoke at the second home birth conference she organised, including Dr Marsden Wagner, previously director of maternal and child health for the European region of the WHO. After the conference, we met with Hungarian ministry of health officials and senior obstetricians, who did not accept the evidence that home birth was a safe option for healthy women with an uncomplicated pregnancy.In 2007 Gereb was struck off the medical register for doing home births and then retrained as a midwife. The birth now in question was not at home, the woman had been advised by Gereb to have her baby in hospital, and labour occurred prematurely and very fast in a clinic. Gereb's lawyers have not yet been told what the charges are but, as mother and child are alive, it cannot be manslaughter – so why is Gereb being treated as a criminal? This is a matter of human rights. As an EU member, Hungary accepts that women have the right to give birth at home, but no midwives have been given licences to practise outside hospital so their right is effectively undermined. We call on everybody to sign the petition at www.petitiononline.com/szul2010/petition.html and contact your Euro MP to put pressure on the Hungarian government to act to enable Hungarian women to give birth at home with a trained midwife.Sheila Kitzinger Thames Valley University Wendy Savage Middlesex UniversityHungaryChildbirthHealth & wellbeingPregnancyParents and parentingguardian.co.uk © Guardian News & Media Li レポートには、（手錠をかけられ、法廷に導かれ、助産師10月23日）ハンガリー出産システムの衝撃的な起訴です

- French baby killings: 'It shows a disjointed, delusional frame of mind'
Women who commit neonaticide rarely have a psychotic disorder – and that's something the public find difficult to understand, writes Sandra WheatleyWomen who kill their babies within 24 hours of birth, as seems to have been the case here, are usually young and have a poor education, and it's often their first child.Those who commit neonaticide, as it's technically called, don't tend to have a mental illness. They very rarely have a psychotic disorder, and that's something that the public at large find incredibly difficult to understand.But for someone to do that eight times seems like a clinical level of problem – I would be considering the possibility of a diagnosis of a psychotic illness or a personality disorder. Although it doesn't seem to be the case here, women who kill their newborns may have been suffering from pregnancy denial syndrome – quite often they didn't want to be pregnant in the first place and refused to accept that they were. As strange as it sounds, it can also be the case that someone does not associate being pregnant with having a baby. They are quite content with being pregnant but then they have the baby and they kill it.If someone has hidden the pregnancy because they are scared or ashamed about it, one way to stop people finding out about it when it becomes a real live baby is to kill it.This woman seems to have been doing this as an extreme form of contraception. She may well have had a bad experience with her first pregnancy, as she's apparently said, but you would think that would mean she would do everything possible not to fall pregnant again.It shows a great deal of disjointed thinking and the possibility of delusions. On so many levels this is not the norm, even for a case of mental illness in pregnancy.

- A radical plan to save antibiotics
Drug resistance is fast destroying the power of antibiotics. Tighter infection control and incentives for drug companies to invent more antibiotics are usually proposed as the answer. But the authors of a new paper say we have to think out of the box.What are we to do about the diminishing power of antibiotics - once the miracle drugs that looked set to end infectious diseases? We know the problem is becoming very serious - here is a piece I wrote about the alarming prospects for a future without antibiotics.But we don't hear much in the way of imaginative answers. So it's refreshing to read a paper out this morning from Aaron Kesselheim, from Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston, and Kevin Outterson, a professor at Boston University Law School.Their analysis, published in the journal Health Affairs, says the usual idea, to give pharmaceutical companies financial incentives to invent and manufacture more antibiotics, won't work. One of the reasons we are in this parlous state of affairs, they say, is that drug companies in the past have tried too hard to sell more tablets. Of course, the misuse of the drugs - physicians over-prescribing and patients not completing the course - is largely to blame, but companies have been disciplined for promoting wrong uses of antibiotics. They cite two cases involving Pfizer. In one of those, in 2005, the company, they say, was warned by the Food and Drug Administrationthat its 'misleading promotion' of linezolid (Zyvox) as a treatment for a wide range of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections 'poses serious public health and safety concerns because of its potential to result in inappropriate use'. The FDA concluded that the clinical trial data did not support linezolid's use for thos 薬剤耐性は、高速抗生物質の力を破壊している
- Eight children stabbed to death at school in China
Former doctor arrested after attack in Fujian provinceA former doctor armed with a large knife killed eight children and injured five others today at an elementary school in eastern China, a local official said.The man was arrested after the 7.20am attack, Xinhua news agency said.He is a former community clinic doctor with a history of mental health problems, said a man surnamed Wu in the Nanping city government office, who would not give his full name as is common among Chinese officials.Eight children from Nanping City Experimental elementary school were killed, and five were being treated at a hospital, Wu said. Six died at the scene.The attacker, who is in his forties, had resigned from his post at the community clinic, Wu said, but he was not sure when.The school, located in Fujian province, was closed and students were sent home.China has witnessed a series of school attacks over the past few years, which are often blamed on personal grudges or people with psychiatric problems, leading to calls for improved security.Chinaguardian.co.uk © Guardian News & Media Limited 2010 | Use of this content is subject to our Terms & Conditions | More Feeds
- Palestinian territories: Midwives and the company of women
Visiting Palestinian mothers who have recently given birth in their homes gives an insight into the support they get from other women in the family – and into their love of kitschSmall bundles of pink or blue are paraded around the living room, where we, the midwives visiting the new mother, are oohing and aahing at the small wonders. Within the bundles lie sleeping Palestinian babies; blissfully unaware of the political turmoil they are born into. Lucky is the mother who has managed to have a boy, still important in a culture where the male line carries the family name.After months of meeting a woman at the antenatal care clinic in the village of Deir Jareer, and perhaps being lucky enough to be their midwife during birth at the hospital in Ramallah, this is our last formal meeting. A visit from the midwives prompts all the women in the house to join in – sisters, mothers, mothers-in-law or other children. They listen and comment; serve up chocolates and a hot cinnamon mixture with nuts. We are honoured by being seated in the formal living room.The room is a peek into the Palestinians' love of kitsch. It has embroidered pillows, fake flower arrangements, tableaux of Mecca with ornate lighting around the frames, verses from the Qur'an hanging on the wall, and lots of family photos. The men in the house have all disappeared for the time being, this is a women's world.The midwives ask about the birth, complications, breast-feeding and plans for more children. Since Arabic is still just a myriad of strange sounds in my ears, I use the time to admire the newborn or the pillows with blue and white sparrows embroidered on them. Every now and then, recognising a familiar word, I can put in a question that my midwife supervisor will translate.It is the first time I see women wi 最近、自宅で出産を与えているパレスチナ人の母親を訪問サポートには、他の女性の家族から得る洞察力 - とピンクやブルーは、私たちは、助産師を訪問、リビングルーム、周りパレードのkitschSmallバンドルへの愛にを与える新しい母親は、oohingされ、小さな不思議でaahing
- Beyond the baby factory for women in the developing world | Marie Staunton
The burning issue on maternal health in the world's poorest countries is for women to take control of their own bodiesGiving birth in the UK is complicated. Antenatal checks, ultrasounds, blood tests, BMI indices, dating scans and more – and that's before delivery. Giving birth in sub-Saharan Africa is simple by comparison. You can walk five hours for a basic check-up, if able. Then again, you are far less likely to survive.Across the developing world there are none of the integrated healthcare services for expectant mothers that are universally available in the west. That means mothers-to-be have to visit up to five different healthcare providers for services that could be provided by one clinic.And that is after conception. The burning issue on maternal health in the world's poorest countries is for women to take control of their own bodies and for their choices to be respected: when to have children, how often to have children, if to have children at all. Of course efforts to prevent deaths before, during and after childbirth should be a priority, but so should encouraging and empowering young women to pursue whatever life they choose for themselves. We must provide more career prospects than the baby factory alone.This view of women as more than childbearers was a call that echoed around last week's Women Deliver conference in Washington DC, yet the reality is that many countries still continue to care little for a more holistic approach to women's health. To reduce maternal mortality we must address the unmet needs for family planning and reproductive health alongside the unmet needs of pregnant women. If women aren't able to plan when they have children, then they have little chance when it comes to life's other big decisions, including education and job prospects 世界の最貧国の妊産婦の健康の情熱的な問題は、女性は複雑です英国で自分のbodiesGiving出生のコントロールを取るためです
- Guatemala must change its tax regime to stop children dying | Hannah Richards
The Latin American country is wealthy, but the extreme gap between rich and poor causes a multitude of problemsIsabel is four years old. Her belly and ankles are swollen and she walks as if it hurts a little bit. Her family, who live in eastern Guatemala, have not had the means to feed her properly, so she is being treated for kwashiorkor – acute malnutrition.Even though it is classified by the World Bank as a middle income country, the level of inequality in Guatemala is such that almost half its children under five suffer from chronic malnutrition. This is the fifth highest rate of chronic malnutrition in the world, higher even than that in Haiti, which is by far the poorest country in the Americas.Isabel will stay in the clinic supported by Christian Aid until she is well again. In some ways, she is lucky. At this time of year when the previous year's harvest has run out, children do die of hunger in this part of Guatemala.Isabel will recover from kwashiorkor but she will never recover from the irreversible effects of chronic malnutrition, which severely stunts physical and mental development. There's no excuse for this anywhere, and especially not in a country with as much wealth as Guatemala. Along with the dubious distinction of having the fifth highest level of chronic malnutrition, it is also the world's fifth largest exporter of coffee and sugar.This state of affairs is no accident. It is a direct result of the extremely regressive tax regime in Guatemala and many other Latin American countries. The poorest pay a far higher proportion of their income on the equivalent of VAT and other indirect taxes, whilst the business elite enjoy a very generous regime of tax incentives. As a result, one in 20 Guatemalan children does not reach the age of five due to infectio ラテンアメリカの国が裕福だが、金持ちと貧乏人の原因と極端なギャップがproblemsIsabel多数のは4歳です
- Philippa O'Neill obituary
My friend Philippa O'Neill, who has died aged 48, was a homeopath and a former housing manager. During her career in housing, Pip had a particular interest in developing tenant-run housing cooperatives. She then became a wise and compassionate healer, committed to running clinics for people who were vulnerable, such as those on low incomes or with addictions.Pip was born in Australia, one of three daughters of Judith and John O'Neill. The family moved to Cambridge three years later, when her father took up a post as a theology lecturer. By the time she was eight, Pip could give guided tours of all the Cambridge colleges, revelling in her lively home of theologians, academics and visiting Australians.Such an atmosphere instilled in her a love of politics, a sense of social justice and a deep thirsting for God. Aged 13, she embarked on a spiritual journey from her father's Presbyterianism, through Cambridge churches to become a Congregationalist, later following her mother into Catholicism, before finally settling as a Quaker.After graduating in history from Somerville College, Oxford, she spent time in south London at L'Arche Lambeth, a community supporting adults with learning disabilities. She proved herself an enabling and compassionate supporter of community members. A diploma in housing at the London School of Economics followed. She worked for Lambeth council in the 1990s and supported tenants taking on the management of their own estates.In 1996, she headed for Melbourne to explore her Australian roots. This was a rich and inspiring time for her, as she developed her understanding of her dual nationality and deepened her relationships with her extended family. She returned to England in 1997 and continued to work in housing, while training as a homeopath at the Sc 私の友人フィリッパオニールは、48歳で死亡した、ホメオパシー、旧住宅マネージャーだった

- Nigeria's President Yar'Adua dies
58-year-old had undergone months of medical treatment in Saudi Arabia before returning home in FeburaryPresident Umaru Yar'Adua, who returned to Nigeria in February after months of medical treatment in Saudi Arabia, has died at the age of 58.A presidential spokesman told the Associated Press that Yar'Adua died at 9pm yesterday at the Aso Rock presidential villa.Yar'Adua had not been seen in public since he returned from the Middle East. He went for medical treatment at a clinic in Jeddah for pericarditis, an inflammation of the membrane surrounding the heart.Rumours swirled about his health, and his prolonged absence led to protests about the lack of clear lines of authority in a country of 150 million people.Just before Yar'Adua returned to Nigeria, parliament voted to transfer power to Goodluck Jonathan, the vice-president, until the president was fit to resume his duties. At the time, many Nigerians doubted that Yar'Adua would ever be well enough, casting a question mark over the leadership of the ruling party in the runup to next year's presidential election.Yar'Adua, who has also suffered kidney problems, left the country several times for what his advisers called medical checkups before he went to Saudi Arabia in November. He was admitted to a hospital the day after he arrived, leaving Nigeria in a political vacuum.Last month, Jonathan sacked all cabinet ministers in an attempt to stamp his authority on Africa's most populous country. He dissolved the cabinet without explanation in his first major act since assuming executive powers. The move in effect left the quiet 52-year-old biologist in sole command of government.The cabinet had consisted mainly of ministers loyal to the ailing president, a Muslim, although some members had begun to shift allegiance to Jonath 58歳の家FeburaryPresidentウマルYar。。u0026#39;Adua、ナイジェリア2月にサウジアラビアの治。数ヶ月後に返される返す前に、58.A大統領府報道官の歳で死亡したサウジアラビアの治。数ヶ月を受けていたそのYar。。u0026#39;Aduaは21日に麻生ロック大統領villa.Yar。。u0026#39;Aduaへで死亡AP通信に話しましたが公共の場で、彼は中東から返されるので、見られていなかった
- Wallace Fox obituary
Medical researcher who revolutionised the treatment of TBWallace Fox, who has died aged 89, was the leader of the Medical Research Council (MRC) programme that developed the standard worldwide treatment of tuberculosis. TB sanatoriums closed by the end of the 1960s after he showed that home treatment was just as good, and then he shortened the period of treatment from a year to six months. The work he did at the MRC tuberculosis research unit, in collaboration with many researchers elsewhere, helped change TB from being an untreatable disease to one that can be alleviated in both rich and poor countries – a major medical advance.Wallace was born in Bristol, where he attended Cotham grammar school, and undertook his medical education in London at Guy's hospital, followed by hospital posts at Guy's, Preston Hall sanatorium, Kent, and then in London at the Hammersmith chest clinic. He caught TB himself soon after medical qualification, and was treated with bed rest for two years at the Bristol Royal Infirmary.He joined the staff of the MRC tuberculosis research unit, directed by Philip D'Arcy Hart, in 1952. At that time, half of those who developed TB died from it, but new anti-bacterial drugs, such as streptomycin and isoniazid, were being introduced to treat the disease. The principal method for TB control then considered by the World Health Organisation (WHO) was BCG (Bacillus Calmette-Guérin) vaccination. But Wallace took an early decision to concentrate on treatment, thus anticipating a later change in WHO policy.TB treatment was primitive. The first clinical trial had shown that treatment with streptomycin alone resulted in drug-resistant tubercle bacilli. But when streptomycin was combined with PAS (para-aminosalicylic acid) or, better, with the more potent isoniaz TBWallaceフォックス、89歳で死亡したの治療に革命をもたらしました医療研究者は、医学研究評議会（MRC）は結核の世界標準治療を開発プログラムの指導者だった
- Komodo dragon attacks Indonesian park worker
Man escapes from giant lizard by punching it on snoutAn Indonesian worker escaped from a Komodo dragon attack by punching the creature on the snout until it released him and ran away, a national park official said today.Agustinus Jenaru was working in an unfinished wooden bungalow on Rinca island on Saturday when the 2 metre (6.5ft) lizard entered and bit his left hand, Komodo National Park official Daniel Bolu Ngongo said.Jenaru hit the jaws of the giant lizard for several seconds until it freed him. He was taken to a clinic for treatment of lacerations and a puncture wound.Komodo dragons can be found in the wild only on the eastern Indonesian islands of Komodo, Padar and Rinca.The lizards, thought to number fewer than 4,000, can grow longer than 3 metres (10ft) and weigh 70kg (150lb).In 2007, an eight-year-old boy was killed by one of the lizards on Komodo island.IndonesiaWildlifeAnimalsguardian.co.uk © Guardian News & Media Limited 2010 | Use of this content is subject to our Terms & Conditions | More Feeds

- Umaru Yar'Adua returns to Nigeria
Three-month absence for medical treatment ends after parliament sends deputation to Saudi ArabiaPresident Umaru Yar'Adua arrived back in Nigeria early today after three months in Saudi Arabia, undergoing medical treatment for a heart problem.Yar'Adua flew in separately from a delegation of Nigerian government envoys – sent by parliament last week to check on his health, an official told Reuters.The 58-year-old leader had left Nigeria in late November to receive medical treatment at a clinic in Jeddah for pericarditis, an inflammation of the membrane surrounding the heart, which can restrict normal beating. Rumours swirled about his health, and his prolonged absence led to protests about the lack of clear lines of authority in a country of 150 million people.This month, the parliament voted to transfer power to Goodluck Jonathan, the vice-president, until Yar'Adua was fit to resume his duties.At the time, many Nigerians doubted that Yar'Adua would ever be well enough, casting a question mark over the leadership of the ruling party in the run-up to next year's presidential election. Even though Yar'Adua is returning to Nigeria, questions about his health are bound to persist, so the political uncertainty is unlikely to lift quickly.Nigeria's cabinet last week rejected a motion to declare him unfit to hold office, deciding instead to send a delegation to Saudi Arabia for an update on his health. Yar'Adua would have ceased to hold office if a two-thirds majority had declared him incapacitated and the verdict had been confirmed by a medical panel.Yar'Adua, who has also suffered kidney problems, left the country several times for what his advisers called medical checkups before he went to Saudi Arabia in November.

- Guardian Daily: Assisted suicide and the law
Earlier this month, Frances Inglis was jailed for nine years for murder after injecting her brain-damaged son Thomas, 22, with a lethal dose of heroin. Just days later, Kay Gilderdale pleaded guilty to assisting suicide but was acquitted of murdering her daughter Lynn, 31, an ME sufferer whom she'd given morphine. Legal affairs correspondent Afua Hirsch explains the difference between these two cases.Arguing for a change in the law is Debbie Purdy, a multiple sclerosis patient who successfully argued for the right to know whether her husband would be prosecuted if he accompanied her to the Swiss clinic Dignitas.Lib Dem MP Dr Evan Harris also backs the right of terminally ill patients to end their lives.Baroness Warnock is Britain's leading expert on medical ethics. She's a vocal supporter of euthanasia. Opposing a change in the law is Baroness Finlay, who chairs the All Party Parliamentary Group on Dying Well. She says the legalisation of assisted suicide would be dangerous and unnecessary.Also against is David Morris, who has spinal muscular atrophy and chairs Independent Living Alternatives, which promotes the right of disabled people to live independentlyThere will be more on this issue from the panel in this Sunday's ObserverJon DennisPhil MaynardAfua Hirsch
