Vaccine Issue Arises at Republican Debate, to Doctors’ Dismay

When Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious disease specialist in Tennessee, flicked on the television last night to catch the end of the Republican debate, he watched a scene that felt unsettlingly familiar: A candidate was talking about vaccines and autism.

RDC: l'épidémie de rougeole au Katanga difficile à endiguer

L’épidémie de rougeole qui sévit depuis le début de l’année en République démocratique du Congo est l’une des plus meurtrières qu’ait connues le pays et elle continue sa progression.

Scientists warn Malaria cases may increase

Scientists are warning that malaria cases in the country could see a rapid increase after a study was conducted on a highly aggressive invasive weed known scientifically as Parthenium hysterophorus, and locally as famine weed.
The International Centre of Insect Physiology and Ecology (icipe) says the weed could increase malaria incidents in East Africa since it has the ability to sustain the malaria-transmitting mosquito, Anopheles gambiae, by extending its life even in the absence of a blood meal.

Why Public Schools Should Require the HPV Vaccine

If you live in Rhode Island and your children go to public school, they will need to be vaccinated against the Human Papilloma Virus, or HPV. This is a new requirement—and not everyone likes it. Those who oppose the change point out that you catch HPV through sex, unlike infections like measles or whooping cough that you can catch if someone in the classroom has it and coughs on you. Why, they say, should the HPV vaccine be required for school?
Because it could save lives, that’s why.
