Sideshow

I was so not going to enter the BandAid30 fray. In my opion, BandAid30 is little more than a tacky sideshow, noteworthy only for the fact that it may well overshadow the main circus. The Circus in this case is the international, interagency Ebola response. * The digital space is lit up right now with […]

Podcast Interview with Young Cancer Survivor and Advocate, Mexico City

This week, the latest in our series of podcasts from around the world. Sandro interviews Abish Romero, a young cancer survivor and advocate living and studying in Mexico City.  – http://blogs.plos.org/globalhealth/files/2014/10/Recording-10.mp3 Abish Romero is an MPH student at the National Institute of Public Health of Mexico. She became a cancer advocate after being diagnosed with breast cancer when she was 24 years old. Her experience with the disease made her realize how important social protection is in developing countries; and how governments can strengthen health systems by improving the quality of multidisciplinary care and treatment. As she has seen, these actions are key in avoiding impoverishment in families caused by catastrophic expenditures. The post Podcast Interview with Young Cancer Survivor and Advocate, Mexico City appeared first on Translational Global Health.

Human rights and Ebola: the issue of quarantine

The Ebola virus is posing challenging questions around the human rights of patients and health workers alike – and this isn’t the first time such questions have arisen. This week on PLOS TGH, Doctor/Lawyer and Harvard MPH Candidate Fiona Lander explores the issues that have arisen around quarantine. When Kaci Hickox, a nurse working in Sierra Leone, returned home to the United States on Friday October 24, she clearly anticipated being screened for Ebola. After all, she had just returned from an area of the world where the virus is currently spreading out of control. Having no symptoms suggestive of infection, however, she evidently did not expect to be put into compulsory quarantine.
