When her mother was diagnosed with cancer of the cervix last year, they made frantic efforts to raise funds for treatment. For Lydia Kosgei, a resident of Uasin Gishu County, this was a trying moment for the family. “The diagnosis came as a surprise to the family, after getting results at Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital (MTRH) in Eldoret, we were referred to Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) which is the only public facility that offers radiotherapy,” said Ms Kosgei. They were oblivious of the treatment challenges that awaited them at KNH including long queues and booking procedure. “We were informed that if our mother was to undergo radiotherapy, she had to be booked on the long list of patients and the earliest she would begin treatment was next year, that was a blow to us,” she said. Faced with uncertainty over treatment, they travelled back to Eldoret to explore alternative avenues. Currently, their mother is undergoing treatment at Manu Chandaria Cancer and Chronic Diseases Centre at MTRH commissioned in 2015. “Life is not easy but we are doing all we can to ensure our mother is declared cancer free, there are however challenges involving services in most public facilities, at times they run out of crucial drugs and we are forced to purchase them at chemists at exorbitant prices,” she noted.

This is the VOA Special English Development Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish Rift Valley fever mainly affects farm animals. But the virus can also infect humans, and South Africa has been experiencing an outbreak. The National Institute for Communicable Diseases reported two hundred twenty-five confirmed human cases as of July second. Twenty-five of the people died. South Africa launched an expanded program to watch for public health threats during the World Cup. Health officials said that there were no cases of Rift Valley fever in tourists. The majority of farms affected by the outbreak are outside areas generally visited by travelers. Most of the cases have been found in farm workers in two provinces: Free State and Northern Cape. Most human infections with Rift Valley fever are caused by direct or indirect contact with diseased animals. Infected mosquitoes can also pass the disease to humans. So can drinking unpasteurized or uncooked milk from infected animals. Most human cases of the disease are minor. Some patients do not get sick at all. Others may get flu-like symptoms such as fever, muscle and joint pain and headaches. Patients normally recover within seven days. But patients with more severe forms can go blind. Some develop encephalitis, a brain disease that can lead to headaches, coma or seizures. And some patients bleed to death. The World Health Organization says Rift Valley fever was first discovered in Kenya in nineteen thirty-one. In the year two thousand, it was identified in Saudi Arabia and Yemen. These were the first reported cases of Rift Valley fever outside of Africa. Current vaccines to protect against Rift Valley fever are limited to use in animals. But researchers are working to develop the first human vaccine. In a new study, scientists in the United States tested vaccines made with two kinds of inactivated virus. They said tests in mice showed that their new vaccines are safer than live-virus vaccines and appear to work just as well. Using live virus in vaccines can increase the risks. The researchers are at the University of Pittsburgh and the University of North Carolina. Their study appeared in the journal PLoS Neglected Tropical Diseases, published by the Public Library of Science. And that's the VOA Special English Development Report.

WINGS FOR MEN www.wingsguate.org The importance of including men as partners in sexual and reproductive health programming has become an increasingly important global development priority since being a focus in both The International Conference on Population and Development and The Fourth World Conference on Women in 1994. Men's participation plays a crucial role in efforts to address the world's most pressing reproductive health problems, fostering safe motherhood and practicing responsible fatherhood. Men are often denied their right to reproductive and sexual health through gaps in information and service provision on a global level. Yet, men commonly hold the decision-making power in the home, which compromises women's ability to make decisions regarding their reproductive and sexual health. Initiated in 2007 and the first of its kind in Guatemala, the WINGS for Men program aims to ensure that men in Guatemala are participating actively and positively in their sexual and reproductive health. To achieve this goal, the program utilizes a multi-component approach that provides education and referrals for services in a manner that protects the reproductive health of both men and women and that encourages greater sensitivity to gender issues. The principal program activities include: * Community workshops: WINGS for Men educators lead groups of 10-12 men in the departments of Escuintla and Chimaltenango through six educational modules covering sexual and reproductive health, gender equality, responsible fatherhood, partner communication, sexually transmitted infections, and family planning methods; * Communication campaign: the Program implements a behavior change communication campaign targeted at men that promotes sexual and reproductive health and responsible fatherhood. Information is distributed by means of posters, postcards, and pamphlets as well as through radio spots aired on national and community radio stations and spots distributed with music CDs to bus drivers; * Peer education: the Program trains men in Escuintla and Chimaltenango to serve as advocates and information resources for sexual and reproductive health for men in their communities; and * Capacity building: the Program provides public sector health provider trainings and capacity building for other institutions on how to provide sexual and reproductive health care for men and how to create more male-friendly spaces in health centers.

Somalia's prime minister Abdi Farah Shirdon played host to other members of the 'new deal for engagement in fragile states' group in Mogadishu.The new deal was created in 2011 by the G7+, a coalition of 19 countries that have experienced conflict in the recent past. It calls for reform of the international aid delivery structure so that donors can work within the state building and peace building goals of recipients, while concurrently helping members stay accountable for the resources they receive. This gathering served as a kickoff event for the government of Somalia which formed a special task force to implement the coalition's goals on march 22. Now that Somalia's national security forces, with the help of african union troops, have driven the extremist Al-Shabaab out of most of South-Central Somalia, analysts say Somalia is experiencing its best chance of rebuilding the political, economic, legal, security and social systems that were ravaged by its long-running civil conflict. The country's government is now seeking international support and cooperation to fuel it's recovery under the components of the 'new deal'. Participants included several somali ministers and high-ranking officials from the United Nations, European Union and representatives from other 'new deal' countries like South Sudan and Timor. Somalia's 'new deal' task force will conduct an assessment of Somalia's resource needs, formulate mutual accountability and monitoring systems and create a national development plan.

Dr Seth Berkley delivered the lecture entitled Australia and GAVI: Saving the lives of women and children through immunisation on Wednesday, 21 March 2012 at the ANU. Dr Berkley joined the GAVI Alliance (formerly the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunisation) as CEO in August 2011, as it launched its five year strategy to immunise a quarter of a billion children in the developing world with life-saving vaccines by 2015. Prior to joining the GAVI Alliance (GAVI), Dr Berkley was the founder, president and CEO for 15 years of the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative (IAVI), the first vaccine product development public-private sector partnership. Under his leadership, IAVI implemented a global advocacy programme that assured that vaccines received prominent attention in the media and in forums such as the G8, EU and the UN. He also oversaw the creation of a virtual vaccine product development effort involving industry, academia, and developing country scientists. Prior to founding IAVI, Dr Berkley served as associate director in the Health Sciences Division at The Rockefeller Foundation. He has also worked for the Center for Infectious Diseases of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and for the Carter Center where he served as an epidemiologist at the Ministry of Health in Uganda. He has consulted or worked in more than 25 countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America. The GAVI Alliance is a unique public-private partnership of international organisations, donor governments, developing countries, vaccine manufacturers and civil society organisations, committed to protecting people's health by increasing access to immunisation. Australia is supporting GAVI to provide life-saving immunisations in the world's poorest countries. Every year nearly two million children die from vaccine-preventable diseases, mainly in developing countries. Immunisations not only save lives cost-effectively but promote health, allowing children to fully benefit from opportunities such as education. GAVI, with Australia's help, has supported the immunisation of over 325 million children against a variety of preventable diseases. Since 2006, Australia has provided $94 million to GAVI and has committed to provide an additional $140 million by 2013. With Australia's support, GAVI has committed to rolling out the human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccine, to prevent cervical cancer amongst women in developing countries. Dr Berkley discussed the role of immunisation in saving the lives and improving the health of women and children worldwide.

Breakthrough and lifesaving innovations in global health like new vaccines or treatments for widespread diseases are exciting. But after the innovation is unleashed, often the hardest part remains: how to get these life-saving products and insights into adoption in places with the greatest need. Global and national regulations, a vast array of national and private health systems, insufficient medical staff or training, and often tough terrain can all stand between a patient and a cure. We’ll hear how global health leaders are attacking these problems creatively. Changemakers from around the globe and across all sectors gather each year in Oxford, England for the Skoll World Forum to share new ideas, new perspectives, and ultimately, new relationships built on trust and a mutual desire for human progress. Over the span of one week, this community tackles the thorniest challenges through the lens of social entrepreneurship. With their drive, creativity, and leadership, these innovators work tirelessly to create equilibrium change towards a more just, sustainable and prosperous world. The Skoll World Forum on Social Entrepreneurship is the premier international platform for advancing entrepreneurial approaches and solutions to the world's most pressing problems. Our mission is to accelerate the impact of the world's leading social entrepreneurs by uniting them with essential partners in a collaborative pursuit of learning, leverage and large-scale social change. Each year, nearly 1,000 of the world’s most influential social entrepreneurs, key thought leaders and strategic partners gather at the University of Oxford’s Saïd Business School to exchange ideas, solutions and information. http://skoll.org/skoll-world-forum/
