US to Support Center for Disease Control in Africa

first_imgThe United States Government and African Union have signed a memorandum of understanding in which the US has pledged to support with experts and equipment the establishment of Africa’s Center for Disease Control (CDC).At a recent signing ceremony held between US Secretary of State John Kerry and African Union Commission Chairperson, Dr. Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma in Washington, D.C., Kerry said the establishment of a CDC in Africa should not be predicated upon Ebola, but should cope with health threats of every kind and enable countries throughout the region to share information and build their capacities to prevent, detect, and treat outbreaks of epidemic diseases. “Under the new memorandum,” said Kerry, “Our CDC will provide expert technical help to support surveillance and response units and an emergency operations center as well as provide fellowships for African epidemiologists who will provide their services to the new center in Addis Ababa.”Recalling the presence of Ebola in West Africa and other parts of the world, Mr. Kerry indicated that the disease is not withering away by accident but due to the assistance the United States and other international partners provided to affected countries that overcame the epidemic.“Early on, the African Union deployed medical personnel and helped to coordinate a very effective response. President Obama dispatched 3,000 American troops to build treatment centers and assist in training health workers. And all told, my government contributed more than $1 billion to ease the crisis, and today we continue working closely with all the parties. And I’m pleased that in a few minutes we’re going to sign the Memorandum of Cooperation in support of the AU’s very bold plan to establish an African version of the American Centers for Disease Control,” he noted.He stressed that the Ebola outbreak in West Africa which extended in part to other countries, including the United States is a test, cautioning people to be vigilant to prevent another outbreak as the worst is falling behind.For her part, AU Commission Chairperson, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma  said the AU’s decision to form an African Centre for Disease Control is aimed at strengthening the capacities of the African countries to combat diseases, sharing information, build collective capacities not only against Ebola, but also HIV, TB, malaria, and many other diseases.“The Memorandum of Understanding between the AU and the U.S. Government on this will assist the early operationalization of the Centre for Disease Control with lessons from the current Ebola outbreak,” she stressed.Dr. Dlamini-Zuma acknowledged the role of the United States in the fight against the Ebola virus that devastated the West African region, especially Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone and admonished the US Government to keep up until the disease is totally defeated.The two leaders reflected on the last US-Africa Leaders’ Summit in Washington, D.C., the Power Africa announced by President Obama and the renewal of the African Growth and Opportunity Act (GOA), which Mr. Kerry said President Obama and the US State Department are committed to seeing the results to impact the African continent.During the US-Africa Summit last August, President Obama announced US desire to invest US$33 billion in the economy of Africa, noting that the continent has the potential for growth and there is a high need for United States businesses to begin coming there to form part of the economic competition.In their exchanges, Dr. Dlamini-Zuma reminded the US of its promise of the power project in Africa and the need to add technical vocation to African universities to provide skills for the rapidly growing youth population.At the same time, Secretary Kerry called on African leaders and people to take advantage of the opportunities at hand to help especially the youthful population to develop in order to create a brighter future for the continent.The terrorist activities on the continent involving Boko Haram and Al-Shabab formed part of the discussion and Mr. Kerry assured that the US Government will help African led troops to fight the Islamic militants by providing logistical support.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Opposition MP welcomes move to possibly decriminalise attempted suicide

first_img…questions why Govt voted down similar motion in 2016]Chapter 8: 01, Section 96 of the Criminal Law Offences Act outlines that persons found guilty of trying to take their own lives would face up to two years’ imprisonment. Government has recently signalled that this law could be amended, having announced that the law was among several others that were under review.This disclosure followed a meeting with United Kingdom (UK) consultant Peter Pursglove under the Support for the Criminal Justice System Programme.However, People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) Member of Parliament (MP) Dr Vindhya Persaud, while welcoming the move, questions why Government had struck down a similar motion she had brought to the National Assembly in 2016.In an interview with Guyana Times on Tuesday, she highlighted several of the measures that were enshrined in the motion she had fronted. She says her motion would have strengthened the systems needed to reduce incidents of suicide.Dr Persaud remarked that attempted suicide should never have been criminalised.“When people attempt suicide, it is a cry for help; and rather than penalising them, as is recommended by the current law, they should be offered a chance at rehabilitation, and perhaps be treated for other underlying causes that would havePPP/C MP Dr Vindhya Persaudled to suicide, including depression and addiction,” the MP stated.Though there had been extensive debate on the matter, Government did not support Persaud’s motion on ground that her presentation was too politicised. Two Members from the Government side — Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan and Minister within the Public Health Ministry, Dr Karen Cummings — had notably supported the decriminalisation of suicide, but they later voted down the motion, in keeping with the decision of their colleagues.Guyana had been ranked second in the world with the highest suicide rate per capita. Its ranking has since shifted to fourth place, but Dr Persaud is positing that more needs to be done to tackle mental health challenges. The anti-suicide activist highlighted that, in 2016, health authorities were seeing more cases in which young people were taking their lives, primarily in Essequibo and Berbice, but not exclusively there.“I think the conversation has started, as people are beginning to realise the importance of mental health, and the repercussions it can have in every sector, when you think of education and the work force, and how it can impact and burden the healthcare system,” she noted.Persaud said she has called for more collaboration between local stakeholders and international agencies such as the Pan American Health Organisation/World Health Organisation (PAHO/WHO) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). Her motion had spoken to the need to have counsellors in the schools, with some teachers being trained to deal with the issues and being incentivised in this regard.Persaud also told this newspaper that she had been pushing for control to be placed on access to poison by means of a two-key system being implemented.The PPP/C Member of Parliament nevertheless pointed out that the review was long overdue, but she also questioned why Government waited to effect the change after meeting with the consultant.“I wonder if this Government is not conscious of what is happening in the country? Because these are not issues that are new, and someone has to come from somewhere and tell us about (it when) we are well aware of it?” she stressed.This publication was unable to contact Junior Public Health Minister Dr Karen Cummings for comments on her position on the matter from a medical perspective. Activists against the law, meanwhile, say that criminalising offenders would not be an appropriate measure to tackle the issue as Guyana moves to reduce such deaths, which were recorded at 44 persons per 100,000 in 2012.During the auspices of World Suicide Prevention Day in 2016, Senior Psychiatrist Dr Bhiro Harry disclosed that the Mental Health Ordinance was revised and was under review, but that draft legislation did not include penalties for attempting suicide.last_img read more

Shaw Communications trying to set up WiFi agreement with City

first_imgJeff Bray is the Manager of Government and Regulatory Affairs for Shaw Communications. He says with the demands increasing as it pertains to data usage, WiFi is becoming more in demand.“Data usage on devices is doubling every four years and increasingly the way in which the world is looking to use data is actually not cellular, it’s Wifi,” Bray explains. “Wifi is a much larger pipe than cellular. When you go to coffee shops, when you go to hotels you increasingly see Wifi as what’s being offered.WiFi connections provided by some local stores lack in robustness according to Bray. When you move from different stores that offer the service, it also makes you log in and read through a long terms and conditions page before accepting every time. This would not be the case if the Shaw proposal were to be accepted as it would add to the 20,000 locations in Western Canada that the service is already available.- Advertisement -“The way Shaw Go Wifi works is for sake of argument lets say there is a Shaw Go access point here in the chambers. As a customer for the first time I log in and enter my email and password for my account,” he says. ” Now wherever I go in Western Canada in those 20,000 locations I never have to log in again. It will automatically recognize me and more importantly switch me off of my expensive data plan onto my no cost WiFi connection. “Council did express some concern surrounding potential down time in service, as well as individuals potentially viewing inappropriate content with the service. In response Bray said any service disruption would be resolved as quickly as possible just as it is with any outage, and that Shaw has chosen not to filter content available online as the company would then be telling people what the can and cannot view on the internet.Bray adds that Shaw does not charge customers for use of Shaw Go WiFi and does not charge businesses that partner with the company.Advertisementlast_img read more
