Take a bow @mvankerkhove ##COVID19's rock star 🎉👏. Incredible wide-reaching analysis of where we are and where we need to be going forward in the pandemic @ISID_org #IMED2021. Some highlights in this thread
Drivers of testing diversity & strategies #COVID19 - I'd add the challenge of a health workforce to contact trace, as well as quarantining and isolating those exposed and those infected in #LMICs, where poverty and overcrowding in households/informal dwellings is so common.
Stressing the importance of public health & social measures (PHSM) and how they reduce as vaccination rates for #COVID19 increase in populations. But @mvankerkhove message at #IMED2021 is "Vaccines, NOT Vaccines ONLY" @ISID_org @ProMED_mail @BorisJohnson

“Knowledge is power, but it is much more powerful when it is shared.”

As part of @Wikimedia's @Wikipedia #WikipediaByUs campaign we celebrate access to knowledge.

Why is knowledge sharing important especially in a time of a pandemic? How can we counter misinformation? Thread 🧵
Early on in the #COVID19 pandemic there was much fear, uncertainty, and misinformation. There still is!

As we gather more data, new research, more knowledge, our understanding improves and we can counter those uncertainties.

But that knowledge needs to be accessible too...
Numbers and statistics can be overwhelming, and so needs to also be shared in a way that's simple, clear and understandable

Just like a picture can tell a thousand words, graphs can put numbers and quantities into perspective, show trends, and tell a better story

We’re now 40 years into the #HIV response, with a great infographic from @UNAIDS highlighting key accomplishments, but there is still much work to be done! #ph260720 Image
Despite incredible progress expanding #access to HIV treatment to over 27 million people worldwide, we are still leaving some groups behind #ph260720. Which groups do you think are being left behind?
HIV treatment #access for children has always lagged behind that of adults, with only 54% of children living with HIV on life-saving treatment compared to 74% of adults #ph260720

HOW TO MAKE A SLIDESHOW FOR YOUR CONFERENCE PRESENTATION BEFORE WRITING YOUR PRESENTATION - a thread/primer

1/
Fellow #anthropologists preparing for the upcoming @AmericanAnthro meeting are feeling exasperated because the #access copies of our pwrpts are due several weeks before the #conference #2021AAABaltimore.

2/
What, then, of the time-honored tradition of writing your paper en route to the conference, or over stale coffee on your hotel room desk mere minutes before the presentation? If that isn't our disciplinary culture, I don't know what is.

GANZ GROSSES KINO

#Factcheck: The World Economic Forum does not have a stated goal to have people own nothing by 2030

Reuters @Reuters rettet @wef mit #fakten (so?) reuters.com/article/uk-fac…
“You’ll own nothing. And you’ll be happy. What you want you’ll rent, and it’ll be delivered by drone.”

das erinnert mich an #JeremyRifkin #access um 2000 amazon.de/dp/3593365413/… aber im aktuellen gebahren @wef ists leicht nachvollziehbar, dass es interpretiert wird, wie gezeigt: Image

Here's a fun #NINO - the UK's National Insurance Number - [Thread] to start the weekend 👇

Maybe I should do an #NHSnumber one sometime? It's a fascinating story, which (ironically) starts with these...
[With thanks to @guy_herbert, @TomSamaki, @PrivacyMatters & others for encouragement!]

Before I start a geeky 'deep dive' on the #NHSnumber, to provide some (personal/professional) context that will hopefully become apparent, I'll just drop these two images here:
So, to begin.

After the Second World War, in a time when we started to think (again) what a #civilised society would be, and when our leaders tried to agree #principles like #UDHR that might prevent the recurrence of genocide, and support #dignity and #HumanRights for all...

A life in the day of a wheelchair user - Buckle up folks because I am sick of doing all of this extra work behind closed doors, and plastering over ableism to uphold a system which systematically marginalises disabled people, by doing it silently. #Disability #Exclusion #Access
I am a huge fan of @Hannahgadsby. I have access to advanced sales because I am subscribed to her website. I want to book tickets to see her Fesitval theatre run by @captheatres. @Gigantic are managing it but on their there are no options for accessible tickets, and no access info
I go to @captheatres website and look up their access info - okay, fine, its taken ten minutes longer. Find the number. "Sorry our lines are closed...". So book tickets by calling but our lines aren't open. So I email - and it comes back saying a response could be 6 weeks.

Okay, I love @POTUS #CaregiverInChief but lowering drug prices is a complicated economic web — healthcare isn’t something that you pay for like a new car, it’s mediated by a third party 1/x #drugprices #pharma #medicare #medicaid
Take International Reference Pricing for example. (Lost you already, haven’t I?) This type of negotiation tool ties drug prices to caps set using “QALYs” - Quality Adjusted Life Years 2/ #health #pharma #medicine #innovation #caregiving #advocacy statnews.com/2019/02/22/qal…
3/ Don’t get me wrong - #health care needs to be affordable & #accessible & costs should be accessible. But tying access to medicines based on the economic “value” of a person’s life unfairly discriminated against older #adults & ppl w/ #disabilities, see ncd.gov/sites/default/…

My last #hackathon & #socialenterprise pitch was to improve minority participation in #clinicaltrials. This trial is has 74% black participants compared to usual 2.5%. Why?

Yes, we do need to expand access. Colon cancer kills.

#MedTwitter #BlackTwitter #NurseTwitter thoughts?
In trials for new therapies however, you see this:

“Even though heart conditions disproportionately affect Black individuals, they accounted for only 2.5% of clinical trial participants in a global trials report by the Food and Drug Administration.”

statnews.com/2020/07/22/cli…
So black participants are the majority in WHICH studies?

Having been in executive suite, speaking on #access broadly, I saw non-clinicians use “access” to shame clinicians on self care or pointing out workplace issues. Yet same administrators would cut number of staff for budget

The folks who are anti-diversity need to update their tired playbook.

Sharing space for win-wins is not the same as hating people in a space.

Violating professional ethics by trying to diagnose via Twitter only damages own professional reputation by displaying poor judgment.
The time to have diagnosed by Twitter was here - instead of holding leadership accountable, people scrambled to put guardrails and install people to be "adults" in the room to reassure the public.

Actually don't be reassured.
Do something.

theconversation.com/thousands-of-m…
This was time to raise alarm, not "reassure"

All of you who distribute pacifiers and those eager to be pacified killed Americans

Plus, there was utterly bad and WRONG advice from a #physician and #publichealth #leader that "no need" to think about DNRs.

Yesterday again, a physician engaged me then seemly regretted the reply

deleted non-factual replies

unfortunate that there is such poor training on #Scicomm that folks do not understand that deleting is not protection

better internal judgment & self management = protection
Is it any wonder physicians are unable to navigate increasingly complex healthcare policy or industry pressures if some unable to manage own selves?

“Physician led” slogan requires those issuing that rallying cry to demonstrate trustworthiness - else *you* harm the profession
#globalhealth, #Ruralhealth in America and #FQHC care require #teambasedcare, as does care for children with disabilities - so I am never going to mandate only one type of clinician or be locked into separate cult-like group coercion or shaming.

DEAN FLIPPO was Monterey County's long term District Attorney after Bill Curtis (and a couple others). FLIPPO has been in charge of Monterey County's prosecution side of top law enforcement. @SheriffBernal, the @MCoSheriff is on the other 1/2 of "top tier".

FLIPPO has acted as

as "legal advisor" for the Monterey County Peace Officers Association.

That position raises huge legal, ethical, and conflict of interest concerns. The conflict should be obvious to the ethical and knowing keepers of governmental ethics. Reg. agencies and others. The @FBI.

Dean FLIPPO and John PHILLIPS were the two numbers twos to a corrupt former District Attorney - Bill CURTIS.

During FLIPPO'S tenure as District Attorney he prosecuted zero public corruption cases of significance.

I just spit into a tube for my employer. So my keycard would be "unlocked" and I could get into my very own office. Where my property has been for very many months. Now yeah, I guess #COVID19 means this is just what #workers do now. But here are #disability implications:
-- my spit, which has my DNA of course, is now a QR code
-- my employer now has access to my DNA
-- my employer now knows I'm on #opiates
-- my employer now knows I'm on #Lexapro
-- my employer now knows things about me that I don't even know about me b/c I've never given DNA
In return for this enormous amount of data I've just given my employer, what do I get? Access to my property, that is, my #poetry books, my #journals, my mementos from across a decade & etc

Cpt Hall's #PledgeofAllegiance in #AmericanSignLanguage on #InaugurationDay has rightfully seized our attention. In this thread, I want to analyse where this came from, what we can learn from it, and what we should NOT learn from it. Read more on this longish THREAD 1/20
When Cpt Hall starting signing, social media exploded with deaf people seeing fluency in her signs and wondering, as @NeilMcD did with his CODA son, if she was also a CODA. And she is! CODAs may grow up with a national sign language as one of their family languages @codaintl /2
Cpt Hall seemed to decide on her own to use #ASL (remember, sign languages are not universal- they are as distinct as spoken languages. The @WFDeaf_org estimates 200+ signed languages around the world. And only 50+ have been legally recognized. wfdeaf.org/news/the-legal… /3

I spent 15 years under various pseudonyms on social due to unwanted attn, also stalking, from amputee devotees. I've been on social 6 months as myself. And I'm up on a devotee website. I don't think nondisabled ppl fully "get" what this feels like, how dangerous the web feels
And this might just be a rant. Because I like it here. I fckn like the disabled community here. But I don't really have #access to dis community on here if I'm going to have to worry about where I'm appearing elsewhere.
Why do you think I wear wigs & sunglasses? Why do I never show my full body? Because this place -- the entire web -- is not actually accessible to me, it is not actually safe. I'm not sure why we are acting like it is safe, specifically for amputee women but also other dis
