Health: IBNI Foundation to set up Pediatric Cardiology Center in Algeria
Quote:


May 22, 2017
A hospital center specialized in congenital pediatric cardiology will come into effect in Algeria by 2020 by the “IBNI” foundation, a non-profit initiative of MED Investment Holding, led by Lies Kerrar, in partnership with TEDA Puhua International Hospital of Tianjin in China and Sant Joan de Déu Barcelona Children’s Hospital.

According to Lies Kerrar, managing director of MED Investment Holding and project sponsor, the foundation is working to establish a pediatric surgery center here in Algeria to “treat complex surgeries with the assistance of TEDA Puhua International Hospital in Tianjin in China and Sant Joan de Déu Barcelona Children’s Hospital “.

The funds raised for this project by the foundation with the contribution of the MED Investment Holding shareholders will be allocated to “build a center equipped with the latest technologies in this field but also to ensure the training of the management teams”.

Caring for sick children in Algeria

“The goal of this large-scale project is to allow children with complex cardiovascular diseases to take care of themselves here in Algeria,” he said. The IBNI Foundation, a non-profit initiative of Med Investment Holding, has already begun its activities by bringing international surgeons to intervene in complex cases in Algerian hospitals.

The foundation also organized training sessions for Algerian infant doctors and surgeons to train in the institute of Professor Liu Xiaocheng at the TEDA hospital in China, added Mr. Kerrar.

Professor Liu Xiaocheng, chairman of the cardiac surgery department at the TIDA Puhua International Hospital in Tianjin, said Algerian-Chinese ties date back far ahead of Algeria’s independence in 1962.

“Thanks to this agreement between the TIDA hospital and the” IBNI “foundation, the relationship between the two countries will continue to grow. The plans for the project are already being implemented and the beginning of its implementation will begin as soon as the Algerian government approves the feasibility of the ground, “he said.

Quote:



May 22, 2017

Five practitioners, part of a French medical team, began yesterday, Sunday, May 21, medical consultations in the province of Khenchela, official sources reported.

Under a co-operation agreement between the two countries, this step aims at the exchange of experiences in the field of health and the training of medical and paramedical personnel, said the communication officer of the province, Mohamed Taybi .

The visit of the French medical delegation is part of the twinning operations between Algerian and French medical staff.

On Saturday in Khenchela, members of the delegation headed for the Kais hospital and 120 hospital beds to launch a training session for the staff of the two structures.

The consultations provided to the patients of the province by the French medical staff turn around orthopedics, rheumatology and pediatric oncology, said the same source.

WHO elects first ever African director-general

The World Health Organisation has its first ever director-general from Africa, after the election of Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the former Ethiopian health minister.

Dr Tedros, as he is known, beat the British candidate, Dr David Nabarro, after three tense rounds of voting on Tuesday. Third was Pakistan’s Dr Sania Nishtar. The decision by member states came at the World Health Assembly in Geneva after a fraught campaign.

Dr Tedros was well-regarded, particularly by aid donors, for his stewardship of health in the Ethiopian government from 2005 to 2012. In the latter stages of the campaign, however, there were allegations about the human rights record and lack of transparency of the government of which he was a member. One US academic accused him of trying to hide a cholera epidemic that occurred in Ethiopia on his watch.

Dr Nabarro’s pitch for power rested on his long career at the UN, where he has played a trouble-shooting role in a number of epidemics. He promised reform of the WHO, which was strongly criticised around the world for failing to respond quickly enough to the Ebola epidemic in west Africa. Nabarro was sent in to boost the response by the UN Secretary General, then Ban Ki-moon. Later he chaired the advisory committee set up by the outgoing WHO Director General Margaret Chan, which put in place a blueprint for reform.

The campaign to lead the WHO has been long and hard fought. It began with the nominations of six candidates in September last year. The first one to fall by the wayside in January, when the WHO’s executive board selected the finalists, was the Hungarian former health minister Dr Miklós Szócska, followed swiftly by Italy’s Dr Flavia Bustreo and France’s Professor Philippe Douste-Blazy.

Kenyans are first in Africa to get generic of latest AIDS drug

NAIROBI (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Kenya is the first African country to start using a generic version of the latest AIDS drug that can improve and prolong the lives of tens of thousands of people who suffer severe side effects and resistance to other treatments.

A generic of Dolutegravir (DTG), first approved in the United States in 2013, is being given to 20,000 patients in Kenya before being rolled out in Nigeria and Uganda later this year, with the backing of the health agency UNITAID.

DTG is the drug of choice for people with HIV in high-income countries who have never taken antiretroviral therapy before and for those who have developed resistance to other treatment.

"I had constant nightmares and no appetite," said Nairobi resident Doughtiest Ogutu, who started taking the drug this year because of her resistance to other treatments.

"My appetite has come back... My body is working well with it."

Ogutu, who has been living with HIV for 15 years, said her viral load - the amount of HIV in her blood - has fallen tenfold from 450,000 to 40,000 since she started on DTG.

Sub-Saharan Africa has been at the epicenter of the HIV epidemic for decades and home to nearly three quarters of all people with HIV/AIDS.

UNAIDS aims for 90 percent of people diagnosed with HIV to receive antiretroviral treatment by 2020.

Trust the nurse? Not everyone does in Tanzania

DAR ES SALAAM (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Florence Nightingale would turn in her grave if she heard some of the stories circulating in Tanzania about how nurses treat their pregnant patients.

Tales of bullying. Scolding. Verbal abuse, face slapping and of women being tied to their beds, such is the breakdown in trust between some hospital nurses and those in their care.

I don’t want to remember that day. Only God knows how my baby and I survived,” said Rahel Gunze, recalling how she gave birth on a cold tiled floor at the capital's Palestina hospital.

It was two years ago but the memory remains vivid; Gunze calls it the most traumatic experience of her life.

I was desperate and needed urgent care but I did not get it,” she told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

Gunze said she got to hospital close to midnight, racked by labor pains and gripped with an irresistible urge to push. Her husband Emmanuel tried frantically to find a midwife who would help his 28-year-old wife, only to find the staff had reconvened to a nearby cafe, where they sat cracking jokes.

As Emmanuel and one of the midwives rushed back, they found Gunze upright but semi-squatting, already pushing out a baby girl who fell to the floor in a gush of blood and shrill tears.

Gunze’s husband watched the midwife slip into disposable gloves to save the baby, who was engulfed in blood from the raptured umbilical cord.

Mother and healthy baby were discharged three days later.

Long enough for Gunze to see how the nurses ran their wards.

I saw one nurse slapping a pregnant woman who was refusing her orders,” Gunze said.

She recalled seeing one woman tied to her bed with a khanga - a traditional piece of cloth worn around their waist - so she could be examined and deliver her baby safely.

The hospital's chief medical officer denied the allegation.

Salt to an Injury

Tanzania has one of the world's highest maternal mortality rates at 556 deaths per every 100,000 delivering mothers, according to the 2016 Tanzania Demographic Health Survey, which was conducted by the government.

Hospitals in crisis in Uganda as Middle Eastern countries poach medical staff

The failure to stop a brain drain of almost 2,000 of its best doctors and nurses is exacerbating Uganda’s healthcare crisis, reflecting a growing problem across east Africa, say healthcare workers.

At least 1,963 medics are being recruited to work at one hospital alone in Libya, as Middle Eastern countries turn to the region for highly qualified workers to fill their own vacancies, which have increased amid political instability and migration.

Although the Institute of Public Policy Research Uganda, a thinktank, sued the government in 2014 to stop the loss of 263 health workers to Trinidad and Tobago, that court case is still pending, and some 3,000 medics left the country between March and June this year alone, according to estimates from activists.

The brain drain of health workers from east Africa is caused by local private recruitment agencies that broker deals mainly with Arab countries – arrangements it is difficult to prevent.

Every year, at least 320 medical students graduate from Ugandan universities, more than in any east African nation. But public hospitals are very short staffed.

Cameroon Becomes Sixth Country to Launch Novartis Access

Novartis has announced that is has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Ministry of Public Health of Cameroon to implement Novartis Access in Cameroon. The collaboration also includes capacity-building activities with the Cameroon Baptist Convention Health Services (CBCHS) on community awareness. Initially, Novartis Access medicines will be made available through CBCHS hospitals and clinics. The objective is to extend the program to other faith-based organizations across the country.

Novartis Access provides a portfolio of high-quality medicines targeting four key noncommunicable disease areas (NCDs): cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, respiratory illnesses, and breast cancer. This portfolio covers the world’s most frequently prescribed medicines for chronic diseases.

Cameroon is increasingly affected by the burden of noncommunicable diseases,” said André Mama Fouda, Minister of Public Health of the Republic of Cameroon. “The government has established prevention and control programs for chronic diseases, and having access to high-quality treatments at low cost is critical to success. This collaboration with Novartis is part of the solution.

According to the WHO, chronic diseases cause 31% of all deaths every year in Cameroon, and a survey by the CBCHS showed consultations for NCDs at some of their health facilities rose by over 40% between 2011 and 2015.

Beyond medicines, the collaboration will also reportedly offer activities to strengthen healthcare systems in Cameroon, for example by training healthcare professionals on NCD screening, diagnosis and treatment, quality assurance and by providing community education and awareness.

Côte d’Ivoire secures $74 million loan from Exim bank India to build four hospitals

(Ecofin Agency) - Exim Bank India will invest CFA41.6 billion ($74.6 million) in Côte d’Ivoire, to build four military hospitals and purchase equipment in Abidjan, Bouake, Korhogo and Daloa.

This was made public after the ministerial council held on October 4th in Abidjan. The investment is in the framework of the promise of Cote d’Ivoire’s government to improve the living conditions of its armed forces. In this regard, CFA5 billion ($9 million) has been released by Cote d’ivoire’s authorities for urgent works in military barracks; kitchens and dining facilities notably.

Furthermore, the government initiated some urgent measures because of the recent mutiny during the first semester. Among these measures, there is the effective implementation of the 2016-2020 Act on Military Programming which involves an investment of about $4.5 billion investment over the period. Out of the planned amount, $1.6 billion will be allocated to army troops’ equipment and $1.9 billion to operating costs.
