A U.S. Nurse Witnesses Ebola’s Ravages in Sierra Leone, Where Horrific Conditions Claim Lives Daily

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2014-10-17

As the infections of two Dallas nurses fuel concerns about Ebola in the United States, the death toll in West Africa is approaching five thousand. The World Health Organization has warned there could be up to 10,000 new Ebola cases per week in the coming months, up from the current 1,000. We are joined by Michelle Dynes, a nurse and epidemiologist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention who has returned from Sierra Leone. Dynes spent the past several weeks responding to the Ebola epidemic in the country’s Kenema district. “It’s a strange situation to see that much pain and suffering and not be able to provide a hug, or comfort,” Dynes says.

An Unprofitable Disease: In the Political Economy of Ebola, Who Lives and Who Dies?

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2014-10-17

democracynow

On Democracy Now!, we look at the political and economic circumstances of the spread of Ebola with science writer Leigh Phillips, who calls for a socialization of pharmaceutical research and production. Phillips says that using revenues from profitable drugs to subsidize research for unprofitable drugs would reduce the costs of vaccines and their development. He also argues the decimation of the healthcare infrastructure is linked to the same free market policies and austerity measures pushed by Western countries and the International Monetary Fund that impoverished the West African countries where the Ebola outbreak has occurred. “We need to begin to ask whether capitalism itself is not pathogenic,” says Phillips, whose recent article for Jacobin magazine is “The Political Economy of Ebola.”

Diverse cultures, different traditions and dozens of accents. In Britain, there’s a lot of affection for its regional quirks, but, as Polly Boiko reports, it can hamper your job prospects if you don’t lose your local lilt.

Inside Sierra Leone’s Sexist Prison System

Women Behind Bars: How Sierra Leone’s prison system is unfairly persecuting women

Inside Sierra Leone’s notoriously corrupt justice system there’s been an explosion in female prison rates. But there are some who are fighting for these women, trapped in poverty and discrimination, and behind bars.

Twelve years after Sierra Leone’s long civil war came to an end, its broken institutions and weak development indicators continue to impact on the lives of its people. And as ever it’s women who bear the brunt. Aside from the usual grim data, one statistic stands out: the number of female prisoners has doubled over the past three years. Paralegals Victoria and Marvel are fighting for the rights of women trapped by a corrupt system that discriminates against them. In a country of only 400 lawyers, Sierra Leone’s 80 paralegals have a crucial role to play in trying to deliver basic human rights. As we watch Victoria and Marvel at work, negotiating with police and prison authorities, advising and at times cajoling the women they have come to help, it becomes clear how daunting that task is.
