@GlobalFund 2021 #ResultsReport: A reader’s guide

#COVID19 is the headline, but there is a lot more to talk about, especially with the #7thReplenishment coming up.…
a 🧵...
#TB is front and center, because it was worst hit by #COVID19. Resources in pulmonary health diverted from TB towards Covid19 – doctors, beds, GeneXpert machines and cartridges – on top of everything else.
#HIV was impacted too, especially #prevention and #testing. #Malaria fared better, probably in part because countries with endemic malaria were hit by #COVID19 latter, though testing did drop.

Zonder mutaties had ons huidig ecosysteem het niet volgehouden. Alles muteert/ondergaat genetische veranderingen, sommige snel (virussen) en anderen extreem traag (mens). Ieder op zijn manier. Waarom dan reageren op #virus mutanten alsof het iets nieuws is?
Ik begin bij de #malaria parasiet. Dit beestje is zeer slim. Het verandert steeds de eiwitten om niet herkend te worden door het immuunsysteem. Dit is een methode ontwikkeld door de parasiet om lang en gelukkig te leven. Zij doen het ook zie je dat?…
Bacteriën veranderen ook hun genetische code om er voor te zorgen dat 1) medicijnen ze niet doden en 2) je immuunsysteem ze niet herkent. Tuberculose en Chlamydia doen dit heel goed! Ze willen bijven bestaan… Image

"Malaria is a topic very close to my heart. I started my career as a #malaria researcher, and I wrote my PhD thesis on the effect of dams and reservoirs on malaria transmission in Ethiopia.
Eradicating this ancient disease has long been a personal dream of mine."-@DrTedros

Since 2000, #malaria deaths have fallen by more than half & we have succeeded in eliminating malaria from many parts of the world."-@DrTedros

#ম্যালেরিয়া বিশ্বের প্রাচীনতম রোগগুলোর অন্যতম। খ্রিস্টপূর্ব ২৭০০ অব্দের শুরুতে চীনে এটি ‘অনুপম পর্যাবৃত্ত জ্বর’ (Unique periodic fever) নামে পরিচিত ছিলো। প্রাচীন রোমান সাম্রাজ্য এ জ্বরের কারণে ধ্বংস হয়েছিলো বলে এটি ‘রোমান জ্বর’ নামেও পরিচিত। মধ্যযুগে একে ‘জ্বলা জ্বর’ বলা হতো।
#Malaria শব্দটি সর্বপ্রথম ব্যবহার করেন ইতালীয় বিজ্ঞানী টোরটি। ম্যালেরিয়া শব্দটি দুটি ইতালীয় শব্দ mal (অর্থ: দূষিত) এবং aria (অর্থ: বায়ু) নিয়ে গঠিত যার আভিধানিক অর্থ ‘দূষিত বায়ু’। তখনকার দিনে এই ধারণা প্রচলিত ছিল যে দূষিত বায়ু সেবনে #ম্যালেরিয়া রোগ সৃষ্টি হয়।
১৮৮০ সালে ফরাসি চিকিৎসক চার্লস ল্যাভেরন সর্বপ্রথম #ম্যালেরিয়া আক্রান্ত ব্যক্তির রক্তের লোহিত রক্তকণিকা থেকে ম্যালেরিয়া পরজীবী আবিষ্কার করেন। এজন্য তাকে ১৯০৭ খ্রিস্টাব্দে চিকিৎসাবিজ্ঞানে নোবেল পুরষ্কার প্রদান করা হয়।

Our new article has just been published in @FrontPharmacol!

Pharmacological assessment of the antiprotozoal activity, cytotoxicity and genotoxicity of medicinal plants used in the treatment of #malaria in #Uganda

#ethnopharmacology #INPST #DHPSP

@FrontPharmacol The new paper in collaboration with @UAntwerpen, @Makerere and @UWMedicine investigated the potential antimalarial & toxicological effects of 16 medicinal plants frequently used by traditional healers to treat malaria, fever, and related disorders at our study site in Uganda. 2/N
In addition, the traditional healers indicated that one plant is used as a ritual plant to boost fertility & prepare young women for motherhood in some communities where a high incidence of rapidly growing large breast masses in young female patients was observed. @TUBerlin 3/N

The 74th World Health Assembly approved the WHO resolution on global disability action plan 2014–2021 for better health for all people with #disability.

The #WHA74 is expected to adopt this resolution on plenary next week.
Over 1 billion people currently live with some form of #disability. This number is rising as populations expand and age, and due to the increasing number of people living with noncommunicable conditions. #WHA74
Today's #WHA74 resolution on health for people living with disabilities aims to make the health sector more inclusive by tackling the significant barriers many people with disabilities face when they try to access health services.

The burden of malaria in sub-Saharan Africa and Nigeria is a major public health concern. The stakes are still high and the socioeconomic topography of African nations affects the bid to eliminate malaria parasite vectors.
#WorldMalariaDay2021 #Malaria
We must come up with more innovative solutions to help achieve more results.
Public health promotion campaigns must place more emphasis on prompt diagnosis and complete treatment interventions.
Patients must be encouraged to complete their medication dosage even when they feel better in order to eliminate disease causing forms of the parasites and the reproductive gametocytes.
