From: http://allafrica.com/stories/201211300257.html?aa_source=useful-columnCervical cancer is the leading cause of cancer death among women in southern Africa, but new research reveals that governments' attempts to address the disease have been inadequate. Access to cervical cancer screening services is minimal, few countries in the region have policies on the disease, and treatment remains a major challenge.See More

Setbacks to Global Vaccination of Poliovirus

Posted on February 22, 2013 at 1:00pm 1 Comment

In last month's edition of Lancet, an editorial was published commenting on the senseless killing of healthcare workers in the Middle East over their pro-vaccination stance for children receiving the Polio vaccine. The editorial is interesting in that it provides the reader with an idea of what global impact this can (and already has, and will continue to) have on public health, and gives one reason for the still existing polio epidemics in specific parts of the world.

International Migrants in China's Global City, with James Farrer

Is China becoming an immigrant society? Why do foreigners move to the country? What can we learn by studying Shanghai's international community? James Farrer, a professor at Tokyo's Sophia University, has interviewed over 400 migrants to China looking to answer these questions. He and Senior Fellow Devin Stewart discuss immigration's impact on Chinese culture and whether foreigners can ever really fit in.
