UNICEF resumes aid deliveries to northeast DPR Korea

Trucks bearing food and medicine from the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) have begun a difficult four-day journey over mountain roads to deliver supplies to youngsters in the isolated provinces in the north-east of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK). Some 11 tons of therapeutic milk, 1.5 tons of therapeutic food for severely malnourished children and enough medicine for 400,000 people for three months are among the items being sent to the area. This delivery is UNICEF’s first since Pyongyang cut off international agencies’ access to the provinces in late 2006. Prior to the closure, the agency, which had been active in the area since 1999, had been providing crucial assistance in the areas of health, nutrition and water supply. The UN Country Team commenced negotiations with the Government to allow aid workers to enter the area early last year, and the decision to allow them to re-enter was confirmed on 7 July. “We welcome the decision by the Government to resume humanitarian access to these provinces,” said UNICEF Representative Gopalan Balagopal. “It is now urgent we reach children as quickly as possible with life-saving support.” He noted that the agency’s priority is to cooperate with its partners to quickly help vulnerable children and to provide treatment to save the lives of severely malnourished youngsters. According to an assessment on food security by the UN World Food Programme (WFP), there are many malnourished children in Hamgyong and Ryanggang, two north-eastern provinces struck by last year’s severe floods. Mr. Balagopal will lead a team, which will include UNICEF’s Chief of Health and Nutrition, on an 11-day mission to those provinces tomorrow. They will visit hospitals, health facilities and children’s institutions, as well as conclude arrangements to train health care providers to treat malnutrition. Last month, WFP and DPRK entered into an agreement, paving the way for the agency to enhance its food assistance to more than five million hungry people in the country. 11 July 2008Trucks bearing food and medicine from the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) have begun a difficult four-day journey over mountain roads to deliver supplies to youngsters in the isolated provinces in the north-east of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK). read more

The Latest Sudan says it is severing diplomatic ties to Iran over

The Latest: Sudan says it is severing diplomatic ties to Iran over tensions with Saudi Arabia TEHRAN, Iran – The latest developments after Saudi Arabia severs diplomatic ties with Iran following the execution of a prominent opposition Shiite cleric and attacks on its diplomatic posts in the Islamic Republic. (All times local.)4:30 p.m.Sudan says it is severing its diplomatic relations with Iran. It says the decision would take effect immediately.The Sudanese Foreign Ministry made the announcement in a statement carried by Sudan’s state news agency on Monday afternoon.The move comes after Saudi Arabia and Bahrain both cut diplomatic ties to Iran, while the United Arab Emirates downgraded its ties.___3:40 p.m.The state-run news agency of the United Arab Emirates says the country is downgrading its diplomatic relations with Iran.The statement was published on Monday afternoon. The UAE’s Foreign Ministry also said it was recalling its ambassador from Tehran.The statement said the UAE would be downgrading its diplomacy to only focus on business relationships between the Gulf federation and Iran. UAE says it’s doing this due to “Iran’s continued interference in the Gulf and Arab countries internal affairs.”The move comes after Saudi Arabia and Bahrain both cut diplomatic ties to Iran.___3:10 p.m.A Bahraini government minister says the tiny island kingdom is severing its diplomatic ties with Iran.Minister of Media Affairs Isa al-Hamadi made the announcement on Monday.Bahrain’s decision comes amid heightened tensions between Saudi Arabia and Iran.Bahrain frequently accuses Iran of being behind the long-running, low-level insurgency in the country since its majority Shiite population began protests in 2011 against Bahrain’s Sunni rulers.___2:14 p.m.A Russian state news agency is citing a senior diplomat as saying that Moscow is ready to act as a mediator in the escalating conflict between Saudi Arabia and Iran.The report by the RIA Novosti news agency on Monday quotes the diplomat as saying that Russia has developed good relations with both countries through the so-called Vienna group, which is working on a resolution of the Syria conflict, and that he hoped that could help resolve the Tehran-Riyadh dispute.The agency did not identify the Russian diplomat and it was unclear from the report if Moscow had made the mediation proposal to either side.Russian state news agencies frequently cite unnamed officials within the government.___2:15 p.m.A prominent Iranian lawmaker says Saudi Arabia’s decision to sever diplomatic ties with Iran likely will force the Islamic Republic to stop sending pilgrims to the annual hajj.Lawmaker Mohammad Ali Esfanani, spokesman of the Judicial and Legal Committee of the Iranian parliament, made the comments on Monday.The semi-official ISNA news agency quoted Esfanani as saying: “When a country has cut diplomatic relations with us, it means it is hostile with us.”He also says that “it appears that protection (of pilgrims) and security issues will prevent hajj from taking place.”Saudi Arabia has not officially commented on whether the kingdom’s severing of ties with Iran also meant that pilgrims from Iran can no longer attend the hajj. The pilgrimage is required of every able-bodied Muslim once in a person’s life.When Saudi Arabia severed ties with Iran from 1988 to 1991, Iran stopped its pilgrims from attending the hajj.___11:50 a.m.An Iranian official has denounced Saudi Arabia’s move to cut diplomatic relations with Iran and accused the Sunni kingdom of stoking tensions region-wide.Foreign Ministry spokesman Hossein Jaberi Ansari also said Monday that Saudi Arabia’s execution of prominent Shiite cleric Nimr al-Nimr over the weekend was an example of this.Ansari claims that “Saudi Arabia sees its interests and even its existence in continuing tensions and clashes.” He spoke during a weekly press conference in Tehran.He says the kingdom “tries to resolve its domestic problems through projecting and exporting them abroad.”___10:50 a.m.Saudi officials say gunfire directed toward security forces has killed a man in a village in eastern Saudi Arabia where mourning ceremonies are underway for an executed Shiite sheikh.The official Saudi Press Agency reported early Monday that a man was killed in al-Awamiya village and a child was wounded. That’s where the family of Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr is holding three days of mourning at a local mosque. Authorities offered no details on who they suspected in the shooting.Al-Nimr was an outspoken critic of Saudi Arabia’s Sunni monarchy but denied ever calling for violence. His execution on Saturday has sparked outrage among Shiites across the region.The sheikh’s brother, Mohammed al-Nimr, has told The Associated Press that Saudi officials informed his family that the cleric had been buried in an undisclosed cemetery, a development that could lead to further protests.___10:30 a.m.Iran’s deputy foreign minister says Saudi Arabia’s decision to severe diplomatic relations cannot cover up Riyadh’s “strategic mistake” in killing a prominent Shiite cleric.Hossein Amir Abdollahian also accused Saudi Arabia of promoting terrorism and extremism in the Middle East. His comments were broadcast on Monday on Iranian state television.Saudi Arabia cut diplomatic relations with Iran late Sunday, hours after protesters stormed and set fire to the Saudi Embassy in Tehran. It also followed harsh criticism by Iran’s top leader of the Saudis’ execution of Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr.Al-Nimr’s execution has opened a new chapter in the ongoing Sunni-Shiite power struggle playing out across the Middle East, with Saudi Arabia and Iran as primary antagonists. by The Associated Press Posted Jan 4, 2016 6:22 am MDT Last Updated Jan 4, 2016 at 7:20 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Greffe du visage apparition publique du deuxième patient espagnol à en bénéficier

first_imgGreffe du visage : apparition publique du deuxième patient espagnol à en bénéficier, en imagesEspagne – Rafael est le deuxième patient espagnol à avoir subi une greffe partielle du visage. Il s’est exprimé hier devant les médias, afin de faire part de sa gratitude envers la famille du donneur et envers le chirurgien qui l’a opéré.Trois mois après l’opération qui consistait à réparer les deux tiers inférieurs de son visage, Rafael a souhaité s’exprimer devant les caméras afin de sensibiliser la population à la question du don. Il a expliqué, lors de ce point presse, avoir ressenti de la “joie” lorsqu’il s’est regardé dans le miroir et a tenu, lors de sa sortie de l’hôpital Virgen del Rocio de Séville, à remercier la famille du donneur sans qui cette opération n’aurait pu être possible. L’homme, dont le visage était déformé à cause d’une neurofibromatose de type I (une maladie génétique) avait été greffé le 26 janvier dernier par une équipe de vingt-trois professionnels coordonnée par son chirurgien plastique. L’opération avait duré plus de 24 heures. Il devra encore subir de longues heures de rééducation afin de parfaire son élocution. L’Espagnol pourrait dès à présent distinguer le chaud du froid et ses lèvres seraient même capables de ressentir la douleur. En mars dernier, c’est une greffe totale du visage qui a été réalisée pour la première fois au monde en Espagne, sur un homme défiguré après s’être accidentellement tiré dessus avec une arme. Découvrir les images : 5 mai 2010 à 13:15 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Tyrone Wests Sister Still Fighting for Justice

first_imgTyrone WestLast July, Tyrone West died while Baltimore City police were placing him under arrest. The officers involved in the incident were never charged. A joint investigation by the State’s Attorney’s Office, the Baltimore Police Department and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner concluded that officers used reasonable force and that West’s death was caused by underlying health factors.However, the story doesn’t end there.Since then, West’s sister, Tawanda Jones, has launched a campaign against police brutality. She says there is not a day that goes by that she does not think about her brother, and that two recent incidents making national headlines – the death of Eric Garner in New York and Michael Brown in Missouri, let her know there is still much work to be done.“It just touched my heart,” she said about hearing of Michael Brown’s Aug. 9 shooting death. “This is not an isolated incident, it’s a systemic incident. The first thing that I thought was ‘Oh my God, now we got a young man who will never get to fulfill his dreams.’”Jones says she was just as emotional when she heard about Garner’s death, which has been ruled a homicide.Meanwhile, she is still mourning her brother, who she remembers as a gifted artist and loving uncle and father.“My love and passion for my brother is the only thing that keeps me going,” she said. “They took my brother away. It’s tearing my family up. I go through restless nights. My body don’t even shut down. I wouldn’t wish this kind of pain on nobody’s family.”The family has launched a multi-million dollar lawsuit against the Baltimore City Police Department. They, along with the activist group Baltimore Bloc, also host an event called West Wednesdays, weekly walks in the city to peacefully protest brutality, and to inform the community of their rights. Jones tells young men and women to be careful in their interactions with police, and to call for backup if they feel they are in an unsafe situation.“If you feel unsafe, call for backup,” she says. “My brother didn’t have that chance.”Jones was also on hand when hundreds converged on downtown Baltimore, Aug. 14, to peacefully protest police brutality. She said the event gave her an opportunity to connect with others who also feel they have been victimized by the police.“I got so many people here in our city who are suffering,” she said.But, it was also positive – full of poetry and speeches from people of all races and all walks of life. “It was so beautiful.”She will be traveling to New York soon to protest with Garner’s family. She has also reached out to people who witnessed Brown’s shooting via Facebook, offering to provide support.“I always loved the community but I never thought I’d be in this predicament,” she says. “I never thought I’d be fighting against for police brutality.”last_img read more

Southborough author combines baking and storytelling as a means of recovery

first_imgBy Nance Ebert, Contributing WriterDayna Altman’s new book, “Bake it Till You Make it: Breaking Bread, Building” ResilienceSouthborough – Dayna Altman knows, firsthand, what it is like to struggle with mental health issues. A former Southborough resident, she has recently published a book, “Bake it Till You Make it: Breaking Bread, Building Resilience” – a compilation of stories from over 40 people who all wanted to get their message across through storytelling.“I started writing this book about two years ago when I was in the midst of a difficult mental state,” Altman explained. “I was in recovery for an eating disorder, OCD and depression. Being an advocate in the mental health field, I see that people tend to shy away from conversation with mental health issues and there is still a stigma attached.  We’re definitely taking a step in the right direction but it’s still not totally normalized.”She felt that if she dove into the storytelling, she could help to open up a conversation where people would share their stories and help inspire one another.  Some of the people included in this book were recruited by Altman, while others reached out to her once they learned about her project. Word of mouth spread pretty quickly and before she knew it, she had over 40 stories to include.“I am very open about my struggles and I know that many people hearing my stories have been inspired themselves. One person who I recruited for this book was my physical therapist who helped me immensely when I broke my tailbone,” said Altman.There is a chapter in the book dedicated to resilience through other struggles in other forms of trauma. In addition to the stories, there are resource pages that include information on what it would be like to call a hotline, what to do if you’re feeling unsafe, and a self-care guide. There are also places to write your own goals and thoughts.    Altman purposefully included the recipe component from each contributor. Some of the stories might evoke a special childhood food like a favorite cupcake, for example. Others may have included a recipe that reminds them of a loved one who has passed.“My goal for this book was to create conversation and inspire others around the dinner table. I want it to be a vehicle to open up discussion,” said Altman.Altman works at the nonprofit organization Girls, Inc., as the public health coordinator for their Substance Abuse Program in Lynn.She has a master’s degree in public health from Northeastern University where she also got a Bachelor of Science in human services with a minor in psychology. She keeps herself very busy and in the evenings she focuses on entrepreneurial projects.“I have been through something painful and I continue to try to figure out a way to lighten the burden for others…,” said Altman.Altman will be appearing at Tatnuck Bookseller, 18 Lyman St., Westborough, on Sunday, Oct. 6.

Case in point: The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently announced that 106 new accountable care organizations (ACOs) have begun operations, bringing the total number of Medicare Shared Savings Program participants to more than 250. ACO growth has also gained a foothold in the private sector, with 428 organizations now operating in 49 states. The existence of the ACO stems from a mandate put forth in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010. Unlike other care delivery models, it aspires to achieve healthcare’s triple aim — improving individual patient care, enhancing population health and reducing care costs — by tying provider reimbursement to quality and financial metrics. This distinction is significant, because it requires ACOs to have technologies capable of supporting a new and more highly coordinated care delivery model. Imaging and the ACOAn ACO typically encourages collaboration among providers from different parts of the continuum of care — including primary care, specialty practices, hospitals, pharmacies, and imaging and diagnostic centers — to deliver high-quality and lower cost patient care. Imaging technology can be used to directly support all of these objectives as well as enhance patient engagement. Some healthcare organizations and physicians are now using cloud-based and Web-enabled devices, such as tablet computers, to securely access and manage patients’ medical images and radiology reports. In fact, one application simplifies image sharing among doctors across organizations, as well as between doctors and patients, bolstering care coordination initiatives for providers associated with ACOs. The platform sits on top of current imaging repositories such as picture archiving and communication systems (PACS), and makes images easily available to anyone authorized to view them — including the patient. This approach supports accountable care in two ways. First, it virtually eliminates unnecessary and redundant images from being taken by other providers caring for the same patient, thereby helping to lower costs. Furthermore, patient safety and outcomes can be improved because triage times are faster and providers are able to make more informed decisions during critical episodes of care. Because ACOs come in various shapes and sizes, a one-size-fits-all approach to technology will not yield a customized solution that conforms to the unique workflows of a specific ACO. Instead, some fundamental requirements and characteristics linked to the ACO business model will drive overall healthcare information technology (IT) innovation.  Current Technology: A Gap to FillACOs have a basic set of technology needs that must be met if they are to succeed and thrive. These requirements generally center on the ability to enable real-time sharing of clinical and financial data among disparate systems, providers and organizations. Current health IT contributions offer a starting point and address some of these requisites to a degree. For instance, existing hospital information systems, electronic health records (EHRs) and health information exchanges (HIEs) possess some of the functionalities necessary to support governance, operations, and clinical goals and objectives. Yet even with these systems, one critical unmet need still remains for the ACO: technology that seamlessly integrates across boundaries for care coordination, delivery, reporting and payment. Most current technology is designed to record patient care information during an episode of care — not over time — and is limited to each care setting’s organizational boundaries.By contrast, the success of the ACO model hinges on the development of end-state technologies that support electronic exchange of clinical information, longitudinal care records, care coordination (especially between acute and ambulatory environments), reports for payment distribution and data collection for measuring progress against goals. Toward this end, the coherent integration of technology is necessary to sustain the mission-critical competencies associated with the ACO model, including: • Care coordination. Facilitated by EHR, HIE and provider messaging systems, a cross-organizational care management workflow will require clinical decision support tools at the point of care, as well as shared care plans and the ability to track referrals.  • Population health management. Tools to support health risk assessment and clinical decisions will need to be joined by registries, workflow management solutions, and tools to aid in predictive modeling and analytics.• Patient engagement. To encourage patients to actively participate in their healthcare decisions, ACOs must rely on telehealth and mobile health applications, as well as patient portals, patient health records and survey tools. • Quality performance. Dashboards and business analytics software will be essential for tracking and reporting patient outcomes.• Risk management. Administrative solutionsthat enable complex case management, riskmodeling and benchmarking will be necessary to control financial risk.The core infrastructure of all these systems must additionally reinforce semantic interoperability, controlled terminology, security, identity management and patient consent. However, cobbling together a health IT solution from a mixture of healthcare technology vendors will not necessarily ensure adoption by ACO providers and other end-users. Technology that has not been carefully built with the workflow needs of its end users in mind will likely be met with resistance.  Adoption Requires User Experience, Provider-Centered Design Currently, healthcare technology seldom fully leverages usability and user experience methodologies. This “elephant in the room” has been the culprit behind poor technology adoption rates. Yet in order to thrive, ACOs must be able to deploy technology from day one that, based on the initiative’s unique workflow and end-user needs, will support care coordination and patient engagement. With the advent of ACOs, the time has come to incorporate user experience and provider-centered design into applications in order to strengthen their adoption.There is universal agreement that ACOs will require workflow modifications. Appropriate user research, interface design and usability testing will be essential for ensuring software meets the needs of the ACO delivery model, while complying with regulations and ensuring quality care and patient safety. Add to these demands the need for improved patient engagement, and suddenly it becomes clear that ACOs offer a reality in which technology innovation can flourish. The concept of incorporating high-quality user experience and intuitive, provider-centered design already is starting to take hold among innovators in the areas of care coordination and population health management. For example, one company is making the delivery of safe care at home possible by using EHR technology for individuals who have been hospitalized. Another company is advancing providers’ ability to perform population health assessments and stratifications through the development of care management software solutions. ACOs Will Live (or Die) by Their Technology Over the past 15 years, healthcare has invested enormous sums of capital into IT infrastructure and systems. The lion’s share of that investment has gone to support the status quo until just recently, but now the landscape is changing. ACOs are dictating enormous change in care delivery and advancement in technology. Current health IT solutions do not entirely meet the unique needs of the accountable care model, and must be reinvented accordingly. It will be fascinating to see how this market shifts in scope, size and character over the next few years.  At the end of the day, greater technology innovation will be required to ensure the sustainability of the ACO model.
