UNbacked 2 billion response plan to contain TB launched

22 June 2007The United Nations World Health Organization (WHO) and the Stop TB Partnership today launched a $2.15 billion two-year programme to save over 100,000 lives. The United Nations World Health Organization (WHO) and the Stop TB Partnership today launched a $2.15 billion two-year programme to save over 100,000 lives.The new initiative lays out steps to prevent, treat and control drug-resistant tuberculosis (XDR-TB) and multi-drug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB).If fully implemented, the plan, which sets out measures to allow laboratories in countries with high levels of the disease to increase their detection of MDR-TB cases, will lead to a ten-fold surge in the number of XDR-TB and MDR-TB patients who will be treated and cured under WHO guidelines.It also underscores the urgency with which basic tuberculosis control and investment in crucial areas – such as bolstering diagnostic laboratories, increasing infection control and surveillance and stepping up funding for research – are needed.“XDR-TB is a threat to the security and stability of global health,” said WHO Director-General Margaret Chan. “This response plan identifies costs, milestones and priorities for health services that will continue to have an impact beyond its two-year time line.”The plan, called the Global MDR-TB and XDR-TB Response Plan 2007-2008, also jumpstarts efforts towards reaching a 2015 goal of providing access to drugs and testing to all patients affected by these two disease types, potentially rescuing the lives of 1.2 million people.XDR-TB first came to the world’s attention in March 2006 when researchers reported that emerging global threat posed by highly-resistant strains of the disease, and six months later, there was a spate of cases resulting in over 50 deaths of “virtually untreatable” cases in an area of South Africa with a high prevalence of HIV.Meanwhile, last month, an air passenger from the United States infected with XDR-TB heightened concerns about the tuberculosis epidemic.“We have sounded the alarm on the potential for an untreatable XDR-TB epidemic,” said Mario Raviglione, Director of the WHO Stop TB Department. “Today we issue our response on behalf of all patients and communities whose lives are most at risk.”The initiative is an ambitious one and must be “fully supported if we are to keep a stranglehold on drug-resistant TB,” he added.A key element of the scheme is a steady supply of quality drugs to treat tuberculosis in underserved countries from the Global Drug Facility, which, since its establishment in 2006, distributes more anti-tuberculosis drugs free of charge to poor countries than any other group. read more

OxyContin maker government attorneys in settlement talks

COLUMBUS, Ohio — State attorneys general and lawyers representing local governments said Tuesday they are in active settlement talks with Purdue Pharma, the maker of the prescription painkiller OxyContin that is facing billions of dollars in potential liability for its role in the nation’s opioid crisis.Purdue has been cast by attorneys and addiction experts as a main villain in the crisis for producing a blockbuster drug while understating its addiction risk. A report by NBC News said the privately held company has offered to settle for $10 billion to $12 billion.In a statement, the Stamford, Connecticut-based company said it’s prepared to defend itself but sees little good in years of “wasteful litigation and appeals.”“Purdue believes a constructive global resolution is the best path forward, and the company is actively working with the state attorneys general and other plaintiffs to achieve this outcome,” the company said.News of the settlement talks involving more than 2,000 lawsuits against the company and other players in the painkiller industry comes about two months before the first federal trial over the toll of opioids is scheduled to start in Cleveland.NBC reported that Purdue presented a plan for it to declare Chapter 11 bankruptcy and then restructure into a for-profit “public benefit trust.”Paul Farrell Jr., a lead plaintiffs’ lawyer representing local governments, said all sides remain under a gag order: “All we can confirm is that we are in active settlement discussions with Purdue.”Attorneys general representing several states also confirmed the accelerated negotiations.Ohio Attorney General David Yost is “actively engaged in conversations with Purdue,” said spokeswoman Bethany McCorkle, declining further comment.Kylie Mason, spokeswoman for Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody, declined comment on details of any possible settlement but said the state will “continue to aggressively pursue justice — to ensure those companies complicit in the opioid crisis pay for the pain and suffering inflicted on our state.”Purdue Pharma is owned by members of the Sackler family, who have given money to cultural institutions around the world, including the Smithsonian Institution, New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art and London’s Tate Modern. The New York Times reported late Tuesday the payout would include $3 billion from the Sackler family. In addition, the Sacklers would sell another drug company, Mundipharma, which would add $1.5 billion to the settlement.In March, Purdue and members of the Sackler family reached a $270 million settlement with Oklahoma to avoid a state trial on the toll of opioids there.Lawsuits filed by more than 2,000 state, local and tribal governments have cast Purdue as a chief villain in an overdose crisis that has killed more than 400,000 people in the U.S. since 2000.The lawsuits assert the company aggressively sold OxyContin as a drug with a low chance of triggering addictions despite knowing that wasn’t true.Purdue’s drugs are just a slice of the opioids prescribed, but critics assign a lot of the blame to the company because it developed both the drug and an aggressive marketing strategy.“Our mission here has always been clear — make Purdue Pharma and the other manufacturers and distributors pay for what they did to Pennsylvania and its people, and put the Sackler family out of the opioid business for good,” said Jacklin Rhoads, spokeswoman for Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro, who has staffers at the Cleveland negotiations.___Associated Press writers Geoff Mulvihill in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, and Marc Levy in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, contributed to this report.Andrew Welsh-Huggins, The Associated Press read more

Fresh clashes uproot 140000 people in Iraqs Anbar province – UN agency

The United Nations refugee agency said today that more than 65,000 people had fled the conflict in the cities of Fallujah and Ramadi in central Iraq’s Anbar province over the past week, bringing the total number of people uprooted since fighting began at the end of 2013 to over 140,000.The displacement figures, provided by Iraq’s Ministry of Displacement and Migration, are the largest the country has witnessed since the sectarian violence of 2006-2008 and are a result of deadly clashes between Iraqi troops and Al-Qaeda-linked fighters.It also comes on top of the 1.13 million people already internally displaced in Iraq and who are mostly residing in Baghdad, Diyala and Ninewa provinces, according to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).UNHCR spokesman Adrian Edwards said that people in Anbar, including UNHCR staff, had reported that many civilians were unable to leave conflict-affected areas where food and fuel were now in short supply.“Most of the recently displaced remain outside Fallujah city, accommodated by relatives or staying in schools, mosques and hospitals where resources are running low. Host families are having difficulties sustaining the burden of caring for the displaced,” he told reporters in Geneva.He added that UNHCR and its humanitarian aid partners had managed to distribute tarpaulins, blankets, sleeping mats, food, and hygiene supplies. Yesterday, the agency delivered 2,400 core relief kits. The Ministry of Displacement and Migration and the Iraqi parliament have also sent aid.“Many of the displaced, nonetheless, are still in desperate need of food, medical care, and other aid. As the insecurity has spread, many families who fled several weeks ago have been displaced again,” said Mr. Edwards.The UN in Iraq has asked the Government to facilitate the opening of a humanitarian corridor to reach displaced and stranded families in Anbar province. In recent weeks, several bridges leading into the conflict area and communities hosting displaced people have been destroyed, making access difficult. UNHCR said it is currently impossible to reach the area from Baghdad and relief agencies are using roads coming from northern Iraq.Meanwhile, other areas of Iraq – including Baghdad, Erbil, Kerbala, Salah-al-Din and Ninewa – have witnessed the arrival of thousands of displaced people. People are reportedly without money for food and lack suitable clothing for the rainy conditions. Children are not in school and sanitary conditions, particularly for women, are inadequate. read more

first_img No Comments Three teenage boys accused of defilement of girl (15) have case delayed It is alleged each of the teenagers had sex with a girl at a house party in Dublin. By Christina Finn Short URL THREE TEENAGE BOYS charged with the defilement of a 15-year-old girl at her home in Dublin had their case pushed back yesterday at the Courts of Criminal Justice.They have been accused of having sexual intercourse with a 15-year-old at an address in Dublin in 2014.Each of the teenage boys is charged with the defilement of a named female child under the age of 17 contrary to Section 3 (1) of the Criminal Law (Sexual Offences) Act, 2006.It is alleged that on the evening in question the girl had drunk a bottle of vodka and that friends brought her back to her home. It is alleged that a house party then occurred at her house, during which five males had sex with her.Three of the young men accused were present for proceedings in court yesterday.Despite the case being listed for trial on 25 April, Judge Seán Ryan was told parties had hoped there would be no further delay and the case could proceed.However, counsel for one of the accused stated the case is still “an ongoing process”.Judge Ryan asked what was holding up proceedings, for which he was told the delay was due to a judicial review taking place.The court was told that when the case does go to trial it is expected to take up to six days.Last year the court was told that gardaí were making their way through 14,500 pages of information from Facebook which the prosecution said would be “substantial” to the case.An application was also made for video-link to be used when the teenage girl gives evidence.Addressing the court, the judge said the case is not likely to get a trial date between now and July.Judge Ryan put the case in for mention on 14 June.Counsel for one of the accused asked that his client’s passport could be returned to him so that he could travel.

Dardalis Archives restored

first_imgThe President of the Society for Hellenic Studies, Tasos Revis, has heaped praise on La Trobe librarian Eva Fish and her team of experts for the speedy restoration of the Dardalis Greek Archives at La Trobe. In an interview with Neos Kosmos, Mr Revis extolled the professionalism and the work ethos of the university team and predicted optimistically that the restoration will be completed within the 3.5 year time frame set by the university. “This is a monumental achievement by Eva Fisch and her collaborators,” exclaimed Mr Revis. “With almost 50% of the material being catalogued within the first year we are confident that the rest of the material will be evaluated, catalogued and uploaded on the internet, thus becoming accessible to all interested parties within Australia and the rest of the globe”.Mr Revis speaks proudly of the initiative of the university to network with other centres of the Hellenic Diaspora.“Ms Fisch has already met with representatives of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese in the USA, in our effort to maximise the use of the archives by interested parties around the globe. We are looking forward to establishing mutually beneficial synergies we both Greek and non-Greek educational institutions and Greek organisations,” concluded Revis.The Archives were created with a substantial donation by renowned Greek-Australian businessman Zisi Dardalis and became part of the now defunct National Centre for Hellenic Studies and Research (EKEME). The Archives consist of a major collection of newspapers, thousand of documents, thousand of administrative documents, films and other material depictions of the history of the Greek community of Australia.The closure of EKEME shed doubt on the future of the Archives, with the university and the Society for Hellenic Studies becoming involved in a protracted legal battle about the ownership of the voluminous archival material. Thankfully common sense prevailed and the Archives were made available to La Trobe University, which undertook to finance a 3.5 year program for the evaluation and cataloguing of all academically.Professor Chris Mackie, Head of the School of Humanities at La Trobe University, also declares his satisfaction with the progress being made during the first year of the restoration program.“Within a year Ms Fisch and her team managed to archive approximately 50 per cent of the material, and this makes us optimistic about meeting the three year goal set by the university,” he said.Professor Mackie went on to say: “We have two more years to complete the task. The next step is to upload on the internet a catalogue so that students, researchers and the general public know what is available.”Professor Mackie told Neos Kosmos that La Trobe University is discussing with Greek community organisations the probability of holding exhibitions of the catalogued material in their premises. “We are currently having discussions with the Greek Orthodox Community of Melbourne and Victoria with the aim of exhibiting suitable material at the new Centre for Contemporary Greek Culture,” said Tasos Revis.

Morgan We lacked cutting edge

first_imgLeicester City captain Wes Morgan has urged his team to be more clinical in the final third after their 2-0 defeat to Tottenham on Saturday.Leicester City created a lot of chances in their game with Tottenham but failed to convert as Heung-min son and Dele Alli scored to give the visitors all three points, and Morgan hopes they can more clinical in future matches.“We’ve come into the game in good form, especially at home we feel confident,” Morgan told the club’s website.“Before tonight we were seven games unbeaten. We wanted to continue that but today we didn’t have that final cutting edge.Victor Wanyama, Tottenham Hotspur, Premier LeaguePochettino admits Wanyama remains in his Spurs plans Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Kenyan international, Victor Wanyama, was the protagonist of a summer transfer saga, but in the end, he is set to stay at Tottenham Hotspur.“We kept them quiet for the majority of the game, I think someone said their first shot on target was the goal, which was a testament to how we played in the first half.“Going in at 1-0 down at half-time, at that time of the game is hard to take but we tried to bounce back but couldn’t find our way to the goal. They found that second goal and it was uphill from then.“Looking back there were a few things we could’ve done to try and prevent that first goal – to try and block the shot or try and close down the space quicker.“Credit to the striker (Son Heung-Min), he scores good goals all the time, he’s a threat at any stage of the game. There’s nothing much we could do about that.”last_img read more

What Went Wrong with Purpose Driven Connection

first_imgIn other words, the lack of interest in the full package, and subsequent lack of expected revenue made Purpose Driven Connection an unattractive business for RDA going forward. They made the decision to kill the costly print magazine, and agreed to host its Web site at least through the first quarter next year.I asked the spokesperson directly if RDA considers the Purpose Driven Connection venture a failure. Of course he said it wasn’t a failure. From an operational point of view, he said that shutting down an otherwise interesting product that doesn’t meet financial criteria “is every bit as important as green-lighting others to go forward.” He also said RDA gleaned “proof of concept” insights into serving a community like Warren’s that’s bound by faith or philosophy.“We believe that we could take this forward with a community that had a somewhat different characteristic—larger, more open to purchasing memberships, more universal, global, etc.,” the spokesperson said.More open to purchasing memberships. That might be key.This shouldn’t suggest, though, that Saddleback hasn’t had any success from the venture. The church said subscribers to the Daily Hope devotions newsletter have grown to 400,000 since Purpose Driven Connection launched early this year.If not for monetary reasons, I think the loss for RDA is substantial, despite the positive lessons it says it learned from giving it a shot. It has to be tough, especially for a company that’s now steering itself out of bankruptcy,  to watch a product it called one of its most important ventures ever fail after only four issues. On Wednesday, Purpose Driven Connection—the quarterly published in partnership between Saddleback Church pastor Rick Warren and the Reader’s Digest Association—became the latest magazine casualty of 2009 as the groups decided to move the product online-only. Until September, RDA said the title, which launched in January, was still in “development stages.” After four issues it was never green-lighted for a full launch off the newsstand. What gives? When RDA announced the launch late last year, it billed the agreement with Warren and Saddleback as one of the company’s “most important and far-reaching ventures ever.” Yesterday, in a statement, Warren said “impressive reader feedback has prompted us to focus all our energies on our digital format so our content can be expanded, international and free.”So, what about the print product? With a $9.99 cover price, was it a dud on stands? A RDA spokesperson called sales figures “encouraging,” especially at outlets like Wal-Mart, but said the company wasn’t releasing specific numbers. He told me the magazine failed to generate enough full membership buys—$29 for the quarterly magazine, DVDs with each issue, study guides and access to its Web site. Those packages were offered by the church to its immense membership base.last_img read more

Google celebrates 15th birthday with pinata Google Doodle game

first_imgIf you’ve been surfing the web since before the Google logo first appeared on a search page, it’s hard to believe that happened 15 years ago. But it did, and Google has decided to celebrate its birthday like it celebrates any other memorable day–with a Google Doodle. And this time it takes the form of a game.If you visit Google’s homepage today, you will be given the opportunity to play a very simple game that sees you take on the role of the second letter “g” from the Google logo. Your task is to hit the hanging pinata star with a stick ten times. As you hit it, sweets are dropped and your score increases. Timing your hits correctly is key to a high score. My best so far is 141.Although Google has decided today is its birthday, other dates have been suggested. For example, the company was founded on September 4, it was incorporated on September 7, and the domain name Google.com was registered on September 15. But Google knows best, and September 27 is the date they picked.As with all the Google Doodles, after today this will join the growing archive of Doodles, which form a mix of static and animated images, videos, simulations, and of course the games. My favorites remain 30th Anniversary Pac-Man and Basketball 2012.last_img read more
