Bin dann also mal kurz weg: On my way nach #Nampula #Mosambik, um die Gesundheitsfolgen der #Klimakrise, die unser Team dort besonders beobachtet, zu dokumentieren. Wir @MSF_austria sind daher in der Provinz #Nampula im Norden des Landes im Einsatz. 1/7
#Mosambik ist unter den 10 Ländern, die weltweit am stärksten von den Auswirkungen der #Klimakrise betroffen sind. Aufgrund der geografischen Lage und der langen Küstenlinie ist es anfällig für extreme Wetterereignisse. 2/7
In den letzten Jahren war das Land mit klimabedingten Gefahren wie #Dürren, #Überschwemmungen und #Wirbelstürmen konfrontiert, wobei letztere an Intensität und Häufigkeit zunahmen. 3/7

It's #WorldImmunizationWeek

In 2021, around the world:
❌ 25 million children missed at least 1 essential vaccine
❌ 18 million children received no vaccines at all

Now is the time for ‘The Big Catch-up’ to get vaccinations back on track. #VaccinesWork

Did you know? Over 3/4 of the children who missed out on their vaccinations in 2021 live in just 20 low- & middle-income countries.

Working theory, "Show replies" at the end for all.

Is SARS-CoV-2 a lab-created chimera?

A Frankenstein virus created from the genetic material of other lethal organisms, creating similar pathophysiological mechanisms in the body?

Gene sequences say YES >
The SC2 spike protein contains gene sequences that are homologous to those found in HIV, SEB, animal venoms, herpes, malaria, rabies and more.
The sequences from these organisms could release toxic peptides and pathophysiological mechanisms in the body similar to those found >
in the original lethal organisms.
Mechanisms are chemical recipes, like baking recipes.
A list of instructions from the genes that, when followed, produce a unique product like micro clots or a cytokine storm.

Just as a recipe for 🎃 pie produces 🎃 and not 🍎 pie. >

"Vaccines against malaria: The long and winding road" 🦟🌎

Para esta charla, @HernandoDelPor1 revisó los aspectos científicos clave del desarrollo de la vacuna contra la #malaria, una enfermedad parasitaria devastadora de la humanidad con aproximadamente la mitad de la población mundial viviendo en áreas con riesgo de transmisión.

The death of every child is an enormous tragedy.

In 2021:
♦️ 5 million children died before their 5th birthday
♦️ 2.1 million older children & young people lost their lives

That’s 1 loss every 4.4 seconds!

Most of these deaths were preventable with access to quality healthcare
Some good news…

Globally, since 2000:
↘️ The under-five mortality rate fell by 50%
↘️ Mortality rates in older children & youth dropped by 36%
↘️ Stillbirth rates decreased by 35%

However, gains have reduced significantly since 2010.

Guess what?

Where you are born dramatically shapes your chances of surviving into childhood.

Sub-Saharan Africa and Southern Asia are shouldering the heaviest burdens of stillbirths and child deaths.

Two-thirds of the global population will be living in urban areas by 2050. 90% of the shift will happen in Africa 🌍 & Asia 🌏. Image
