1. DR Congo: Africa's Deadliest Conflict


    from Doctors Without Borders/MSF-USA Added 68 0 0

    Every day, MSF is confronted with the medical consequences of violence in its hospitals, health centers and mobile clinics in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Medical teams treat trauma injuries from guns, machetes, lances, rifle bayonets, knives, hammers, shells, bows and arrows. But for those on the receiving end, there is often no escape from the violence. Habagasi, an 80-year-old woman living in deplorable conditions at a displaced persons camp on the outskirts of Goma, has been looking after the orphaned children left behind when her family were murdered: “I had eight sons; they were killed together with my husband and they pumped bullets into my body.” Having fled for their lives, Habagasi and her grandchildren thought they’d be safe at an ‘official’ displaced persons camp, but the violence continued: “The first month here, M23 raided. They looted our food rations, clothes, phones... they stole all of that. They did bad things to me.” Unfortunately, Habagasi is not alone in suffering violence at the hands of armed groups. Some 2.96 million people are currently displaced in DRC and many of them have no access to humanitarian assistance. Many communities are cut off from medical care due to poor infrastructure, displacement and conflict, and adequate assistance is not being provided in rural and conflict-affected areas by aid organizations and by the state. At the same time, violence against civilians, medical staff and property is commonplace, and health care providers are regularly required to suspend operations, leaving people deprived of the medical care they urgently need.

            • South Sudan: Overcrowded camp threatened by upcoming rains


              from MSF Added 62 1 0

              In the Tomping camp, in Juba, South Sudan, living conditions are extremely poor. The camp is overcrowded, with only 10 square metres for every person in the camp, and water and sanitation is also a major problem. More than fifty people have to share the same latrine, which is above the emergency threshold standard for such a setting. The rainy season will start at the end of March, which, unless residents are moved to a place that is less crowded with a better drainage system, will cause an increase in diarrhoeal diseases and malaria. A flooded, overcrowded camp would make the situation untenable for the camp residents, many of whom are too fearful of being attacked if they were to return home. There is now the ambition to move part of the residents to the Juba 3 camp, where conditions are better.

              • Doctors' stethoscopes can be dirtier than their own hands


                from Press TV Added 16 0 0

                You may find this next story hard to believe, but it sure is true! Reports say doctors' stethoscopes can be dirtier than their own hands! What’s more worrying is that these medical instruments are in fact helping the transmission of deadly bugs like the M-R-S-A. The study, published in the journal 'Mayo Clinic Proceedings' is the first to make a direct comparison of bacterial contamination of hands and stethoscopes. Let's hope a new device replaces these, and doctors will soon be hanging up their stethoscopes for good.

                • Chinese doctors use maggots to cure wounds & clean dead tissue


                  from Press TV Added 40 0 0

                  Historically, maggots have been known for centuries to help heal wounds. And now doctors in China are using them in treating patients. Maggot Therapy involves the introduction of live, disinfected maggots into unhealed skin and soft tissue wounds in order to clean out dead tissue and disinfect the wound. The Maggots efficiently consume dead tissue as they feed on rotting flesh, but leave healthy tissue practically untouched. This therapy has been successfully used in the treatment of ulcerations from which many diabetics suffer. And here in one hospital in China, doctors are treating a woman’s foot through this therapy. And the results have so far been very encouraging.
