More or Less: Behind the Stats
The smash hit TV show and video game ‘The Last of Us' has spawned lots of curiosity about how worried we should be about the relatively unknown world of fungi. A figure in a recent BBC online article stated that fungal infections kill around 1.7 million people a year, about three times as many as malaria. In this episode we look at the both the global fight against malaria and David Denning, Professor of Infectious Diseases and Global Health at the University of Manchester explains the risks posed by fungal infections globally.

Mary Crutchfield has led a “varied” life. Mary is from Trenton, New Jersey, but from about age eight until twenty-one, she was living all over the world. Her parents were missionaries and Mary and her family lived in Kenya, Tanzania and the Philippines. Paul and Mary discussed her life abroad including her education and the fact that she had Malaria seventeen times! Mary moved back to the United States when she was twenty-one and she talked with Paul about her re-integration to life back in the states. She told him how she was lucky to have so many people help her including her aunt which led her to settling in Virginia. Mary is a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner and opened her business Leva Psychiatry about five years ago. She and Paul discussed mental health in general, the way she treats her clients and the crisis calls that were rampant during Covid-19. They finished the episode by Paul asking Mary some questions about mental health and with her telling him a little more about her family.
This episode discusses four MMWR reports. The first report looks at fruit, vegetable, and sugar-sweetened beverage intake among U.S. children. The second report highlights the effectiveness of the original mRNA vaccines in preventing COVID-19 illness among young children. The third report looks at how many young children in the U.S. are getting their COVID-19 vaccines. And the last report looks at how many U.S. teens and adults have gotten, or plan to get, an updated COVID-19 vaccine.
This episode discusses four MMWR reports. The first report looks at the effectiveness of the flu vaccine among U.S. children and adults. The second report examines testing for COVID-19 prior to departure among international travelers. The third report examines the use of aircraft wastewater for early detection of COVID-19 variants. And the last report highlights the characteristics of the Omicron subvariant XBB.1.5.
Welcome to The Nonlinear Library, where we use Text-to-Speech software to convert the best writing from the Rationalist and EA communities into audio. This is: Shallow Problem Review of Landmines and Unexploded Ordnance, published by Jakob P. on March 3, 2023 on The Effective Altruism Forum. This report is a shallow dive into unexploded ordnance (UXO), landmines which is a sub-area within Global Health and Development. This report reflects approximately 40-50 hours of research and is informed by a 6-month internship I did with the programme and donor relations section of the United Nations Mine Action Service in the fall of 2021. The report offers a brief dive into whether we think a particular problem area is a promising area for either funders or founders to be working in. Being a shallow report, should be used to decide whether or not more research and work into a particular problem area should be prioritised. This report was produced as part of Cause Innovation Bootcamp's fellowship program. Thank you to James Snowden, Akhil Bansal and Leonie Falk for providing feedback on earlier versions of this report. All errors are my own. Summary Importance: The issue of UXOs and landmines impacts the health as well as income and most likely the mental health of individuals.. There are on average ~25,000 casualties (defined as severely injured or dead) from landmines, IEDs and UXOs per year (with 2/3rds being caused by IEDs). To put provide some context for this number, Malaria, one of the leading global killers, caused 643 000 deaths (95% UI 302 000–1 150 000) in 2019. This report aims to gauge the income, health and psychological effects of those casualty events. Tractability: Mine action is the umbrella term capturing all the activities aimed at addressing the problem of victim operated landmines, IEDs and other UXOs - meaning that the detonation is triggered by the victim itself. There are several interventions in mine action with four phases to tackle the problem: prevention, avoidance, demining, and victim assistance. Although the report attempts to provide some data on the cost-effectiveness of the different interventions there are several reasons why these estimates are highly uncertain. Furthermore, it is unclear if it would be possible to scale the most cost-effective interventions while keeping the level of cost-effectiveness. Neglectedness: The United Nations Mine Action service functions as the coordinating body for a lot of the funding and efforts in international mine action and moves around 65 million USD. The two biggest implementers are the Mines Advisory Group (90 million USD) and the HALO Trust (100 million USD). Most of that funding comes from high income country governments. These grants often include a political component in where the activities are taking place. It is unclear how effectively these resources are allocated and how many casualties they are preventing each year. Main Takeaways Biggest uncertainties: The poor data availability allows for only low levels of confidence in many conclusions. It is highly uncertain what the economic effects of landmines contamination actually are. Since we would expect that these effects make up a majority of the positive benefit, our cost-effectiveness estimates are highly uncertain. Recommendations for philanthropist and why: The research has led to the recommendation to inquire directly with mine action organisations on what they deem the most cost-effective area or intervention to fund, since such data is highly dependent on the factors which cannot easily be predicted. Ukraine is being heavily contaminated by unexploded ordnance right now, especially in its east, the severity and need of the contamination will require a lot of funding and could be potentially very cost effective due to the dense nature of the contaminants as well as the terrain. Mechanical demining could be an appropriate method which could be highly cost-effective. The wide scale decontaminatio...
Health leaders and advocates around the world are in the midst of creating a new architecture to deal with pandemics. This means new structures, systems and financing for pandemic prevention, preparedness and response — PPPR, for short. A lot is being discussed, and a lot more is riding on the decisions. Chris Collins, the CEO and President at Friends of the Global Fight Against AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria and an AVAC co-founder, has been tracking this work. He's warned of the risk of multiple, siloed systems for global health, and was a co-author of the recent PLOS Global Public Health article, Leveraging the HIV response to strengthen pandemic preparedness, which describes many parts of the HIV response that have been, and must continue to be, central to a bolder vision for this new architecture and for global health at large. In this episode of Px Pulse, Jeanne Baron talks to Chris about what's at stake, which policy-makers get it already, why this year matters so much, and what advocates can do about it.
In the vast and challenging landscape of global health, the story of malaria has most recently been one great progress. Many Asian countries, including Thailand, are on the verge of eliminating the disease entirely, demonstrating a 90% decrease in cases over the past 15 years. Standing at the forefront of this fight is Jui Shah '02, who leads a malaria elimination team in Bangkok, partnering with Thai leadership to collect and translate disease surveillance data, designin strategies and policy considerations, all with the goal to bring the country eventually down to zero. In this episode, Jui describes both the nature of her work, and her long journey from Harvard-Westlake--crediting in part the transformational impact of financial aid. Jui describes how she could not have accessed great institutions like Harvard-Westlake, Georgetown, and Johns Hopkins were it not for need-based financial assistance. Today, Jui chooses to pay that gift forward through her work in Thailand, stating she feels "the responsibility to do something meaningful with all of the investment that has been made in me." Jui credits Nini Halkett and Javier Zaragoza from Harvard-Westlake, Chuck Weiss and You-Me Park at Georgetown, and global health leader Yazoume Ye as profound life influences.

Cochrane Infectious Diseases has produced dozens of reviews on the prevention and treatment of malaria. These include interventions, such as drugs, taken by people, as well as some at the level of the environment. One of these looks at house modifications for preventing malaria and we asked lead author, Tilly Fox from the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine in the UK to tell us about the importance of the October 2022 update and its findings.
This is Dr Mary Travelbest: FAQ is: What about immunizations other than Covid? Where can I go for good medical advice? . Today's Destination is: Little Rock, Arkansas Today's Mistake- Taking too much luggage Travel Advice: Tips for Wildlife Watching: photos and using binoculars FAQ: Do I need other immunizations besides Covid, such as Typhoid fever immunization? Answer: Are you traveling to countries that are known for having diseases? Find out. This makes a big difference when solo, especially in Steps 4 and 5 travel. RSV, Covid, Flu? Triple whammy. Typhoid is bad in what countries? Hepatitis is bad. Malaria is where? Tetanus shots? Every ten years? Polio? Ask your doctor. What immunizations do you need? Get your official International Certificate of Immunization that contains a record of your vaccinations and immunizations for you to keep with your passport. There are at least 10 recommended immunizations you may need. Go to a health seminar for travelers, and search for the best ones. You will likely be paying out of pocket for all of the services, including immunizations, so choose wisely. In most cases, health insurance does not cover these visits, generally speaking. Today's destination: Little Rock, Arkansas 200,000 people live here. It's a step one or two trip, in the 5 Steps to Solo Travel. Best time to visit is the summer, even though it's muggy hot. Long days and short nights make for some fun in the sun, shade, and breezes along the river. The hospitality is wonderful in Arkansas. Clinton Presidential Museum is one of the highlights of downtown. Indians influenced the river and are honored at Riverfront Park. Carve time to enjoy this park, free and easy to navigate. If you're coming from the east, it's an easy drive from Memphis, Tennessee. Bright parts: Greenery is abundant here. Plenty of water is available for walks on the paths, along the shore, and exploring solo as a Step 1 or Step 2 traveler. https://www.littlerock.gov/ https://www.rivermarket.info/ Riverfront park has concerts, events, and plenty to entertain and amuse. Check the calendar when you are visiting. There's plenty to do here, just find what makes you tick. zoo, river, parks, museums, and history, including a lof of Arkansas history. Don't forget to sample some of the local home-style cooking and local favorite dishes. Do pack the bug repellent and watch for poison ivy. Today's Mistake- Too much luggage Today's Travel Advice-Tips for Wildlife Discovery: photo tips and using binoculars First: Wildlife Watching Tips: Your car serves as a good “blind” for watching wildlife, protecting you and the animals from one another. Pull all the way off the road, turn off the motor and the lights. Keep young children and pets quiet and inside the car. Don't trespass on private property and, when in the national park or national forest, observe posted signs. Next: Photo Tips: Use a telephoto lens and tripod. Respect the safety and welfare of your subject, aiming for photos of calm, dignified, unstressed animals. Morning and afternoon lights are best, with the sun at your back. If you don't have a telephoto lens, show the animal in its natural surroundings rather than trying to move in too close. You could lose the shot altogether by spooking the subject. Last: Binocular Tips: First find the subject with the unaided eye and, bringing the eyepieces just under your eyes, sight the subject over the tips of the eyepieces. Slowly bring the binoculars to your eyes and focus. I like binocs that are small and compact. What do you like?

We are all called to live missionally. It is the Lord's plan for all peoples to know of His glory. As nurses, we may have access to those who have never heard the Gospel. We can get behind closed doors working within communities, establish trust, pray with patients, and provide wholistic care. Nurses care for the physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of people. We can use the discipline of nursing to be the hands and feet of Jesus. We can show honor, respect, caring, and compassion to everyone the Lord brings into our path, no matter where we are serving Him. As believers, we can make disciples. Healthy, authentic disciples make healthy churches. The church is not a place, or an event, it is the people. We as nurses have extra tools in our toolbox to pray, teach, encourage, advance the Gospel, and give glory to the Lord. https://bit.ly/gmhc2022_rebeccameyer_roleofnursesinmissions
