      • ARK: Preventing diarrhoea deaths - a new approach for Zambia & beyond

        www.arkonline.org/health/zambia Diarrhoea causes more deaths of young children in sub-Saharan Africa than AIDS, malaria and measles combined, yet its treatment still attracts relatively little investment. Working with our local partner, the Centre for Infectious Disease Research in Zambia (CIDRZ), and the Ministry of Health, we will strengthen the Zambian health system. Our immediate goal is to reduce the 15,000 diarrhoea-related deaths a year among children under the age of five. Up to one in three of these deaths is due to rotavirus, an easily transmitted infection for which there is now an effective vaccine. Over 700,000 infants will be vaccinated against rotavirus by 2015 560 health workers will be trained in diarrhoea treatment by early 2014 Our mission in Zambia is to support and develop an integrated anti-diarrhoea approach for Africa that includes three elements: infant vaccination, better medical treatment and prevention. ARK believes this model could be expanded throughout Sub Saharan Africa to save hundreds of thousands of lives.

 Video Recording and Editing Team: Sam German, Jenny Baeseman, and Alexey Pavlov Special thanks to Daniela Liggett and the University of Canterbury for hosting this session and to the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) for funding of the editing, and to Norden for funding the project. About the APECS Virtual Poster Session This recording is part of the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) effort focuses on bringing the concept of the poster presentation beyond the four walls of the conference hall and creates an online database of polar research poster publications. This project allows members with similar goals and interests to exchange information and assures a platform for the exchange of Arctic, Antarctic and Cryospheric research, policy, and education activities that are Shaping the Future of Polar Research. APECS is leading an effort towards e-conferences among polar researchers where participants can present their research findings to an international audience through web-based settings using the APECS website. As part of this project regular online virtual poster sessions are held. For more information or to find out about upcoming sessions, visit http://apecs.is/virtual-poster-session.

                  El colectivo local Sense Barreres puso el miércoles punto y final al ciclo de actividades organizadas con motivo del Día de las Enfermedades Raras con la celebración de una mesa redonda donde se abordaron las claves para convivir con una dolencia de baja prevalencia. La actividad siguió con la tónica de las dos predecesoras, pues logró congregar en Las Cerámicas de Petrer a un destacado número de ciudadanos interesados en escuchar los testimonios de los familiares que relataron el día a día de algunas de algunas de las denominadas enfermedades raras. En este ciclo de charlas estaba previsto también que participará la doctora de la Unidad Multidisciplinar de Enfermedades Raras del Hospital General de Alicante, Cecilia Soriano, aunque finalmente no pudo formar parte de esta mesa redonda. Tras los testimonios de Sabina García, Inmaculada Chico y de Javier Romero, vicepresidente de Sense Barreres, la actividad se completó con la proyección de un interesante reportaje audiovisual sobre el Síndrome de Rett realizado por la revista Vis-à-Vis y en el que participó el propio Romero (ver reportaje). Tras la buena acogida de las tres actividades realizadas (Carrera solidaria, concierto a favor de la asociación y mesa redonda), desde Sense Barreres han señalado su intención de continuar realizando actividades que hagan visibles estas enfermedades tan necesitadas de inversiones en investigación para poder avanzar en ellas. “Tenemos pensado organizar conferencias cada mes o cada dos. Es necesario realizar todas estas cosas para que la sociedad se integre con nosotros, porque es ella la que nos ha apartado”, ha indicado a Petreraldia Javier Romero, vicepresidente de la asociación y padre de Paula, una niña con síndrome de Rett.
