      Audio only: EJF's Ocean Campaigner Andy Hickman speaks at the Frontline Club on the 7th June. Short film screening of Deadly Catch, followed by a discussion with an expert panel and audience Q&A. Chaired by Tom Clarke, science correspondent Channel 4 News. Domitilla Senni, policy adviser to the Pew Environment Group since 2006. John Pearce is a Senior Consultant at MRAG Ltd. One of the single biggest factors in ocean degradation is overfishing. Fish stocks have declined dramatically, with as much as 90% of big fish gone in some parts of the global ocean. More than one billion people rely on fish as their main source of protein globally. As catches decline and quotas and rules are tightened in response, there has been a huge increase in illegal, unreported or unregulated (IUU) or “pirate” fishing. Pirate fishing is estimated to make up almost one-fifth of the global catch, and respects neither national boundaries nor international attempts to manage ocean resources. The recent seizure of £4 million worth of seafood in the Spanish port of Las Palmas, allegedly caught illegally in west African waters and headed for dinner tables in Europe, serves to highlight this growing criminal trade, which exploits lax regulations at ports and on the high seas, and often involves serious human rights infringements.

By focusing on the quality of care and the audit of district hospitals, along with qualitative and quantitative data, the study aimed to use criterion based audits and patient-centered case reviews to learn how these hospitals may better address obstetric emergencies. The panelists spoke on the setup, rationale, methodology, objectives, implementation and preliminary results from the study, as well as tips from the field on best practices and ways forward. Preliminary data was released during the session, and more data will be released at a later date.

                    • Explaining Ebola from a Global Health Perspective: Causation, Crisis, and Coordination

                      The unfolding Ebola epidemic in West Africa is making urgent an understanding of “global health thinking.” Even though still confined to 5 West African countries, the crisis is already global. Not simply because it has drawn in international actors (Doctors Without Borders, WHO, the World Bank, etc.) and not simply because there is the potential of transmission to other countries. Rather, it is “global” because it shows us how global diseases arise: how local circumstances can, through human networks, affect ever larger populations. This talk draws on the history, genetics, and epidemiology of Ebola Virus Disease to argue why this crisis demands the involvement of all academic disciplines, bringing to the table every skill we have to make sense of the present crisis and avert anything like it in the future. Monica H. Green, Professor of History, is a specialist in the history of medicine and health. She has published extensively on the history of medicine and healthcare in medieval Europe, and has edited a forthcoming special collection of essays on the Black Death as a semi-global pandemic. Besides work forthcoming in Lancet Infectious Diseases, she is currently completing an essay on “The Globalizations of Disease.” Her teaching notes on the Ebola crisis, as well as the syllabus for her course, “Global History of Health,” can be found on her Academia.edu page.
