October Global Health Readings

For those in the Boston area, the MSF exhibition Forced from Home is an engaging discussion about the plight of displaced peoples throughout the world. It’s a 45-55 minute tour, you can drop in or reserve a spot ahead of time, and it includes both a 360 degree film of various refugee camps as well as multiple short presentations around different aspects of life for displaced people. Worthwhile.

 

A piece discussing interventions around access to medications – I thought the MSH intervention in Tanzania parallels the work domestically in academic detailing in some interesting ways.
The annual TB report from the WHO (which we’ll be discussing amongst the GH pathway people later this week).  Highlights include the improving ability for diagnosis and treatment, counterbalanced by rising resistance as well as difficulties in prevention and case detection.
Great piece from BMC’s own Nahid Bhadelia on a common problem in LRS, where donated medical equipment lies broken and subsequently unused.
