Pakistan is among seven countries across the globe where four American drug companies appear to underpay and deprive the economies of the developing countries by an estimated ‘$112 million in taxes every year’, according to a research report published by Oxfam.
The new research report titled Prescription for Poverty: Drug companies as tax dodgers, price gougers, and influence peddlers, shows that “four pharmaceutical firms—Abbott, Johnson & Johnson, Merck, and Pfizer—systematically stash their profits in overseas tax havens. They appear to deprive developing countries of more than $100 million every year—money that is urgently needed to meet the health needs of people in these countries—while vastly overcharging for their products.”

Advertise / 8 ways 'ghee' can benefit you
« Last post by ayeshanoor on September 25, 2018, 02:35:54 PM »
Nowadays, jars of ghee are shoved to the side in a bid to be healthier. However, did you know that this neglected product has a remarkable spectrum of health and beauty benefits?
Made from milk, it contains omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin A and much more. So it comes as no surprise that ghee has been a valued food product for decades. From aiding the digestive system to conditioning frizzy hair, here are eight ways ghee can benefit you, as compiled from The Indian Express.

1. Rids you of dark circles

Lack of sleep, stress and too much work seem to be issues for everyone these days. Times like this call for ghee application to aid in the reduction of dark circles. Apply a small amount, lightly around the eyes before getting your beauty sleep and you’ll get rid of them in no time!

2. Tames frizzy hair

Ghee is full of fatty acids and antioxidants, making for a tremendous hair conditioner for dry and frizzy hair. Mixing a little olive oil and ghee together will help condition your hair – making it soft and shiny. Mixing lemon juice with ghee will sort out your dandruff issues too.

3. Conditions chapped lips

With winter soon approaching, chapped lips will be every girl’s problem. Applying warm ghee before bedtime will result in soft, supple lips.

4. Helps in getting glowing skin

Ghee has long been an essential part of various beauty care rituals. Its essential fatty acids act as a nourishing agent that can do wonders on dull, tired skin.

5. Reduces belly fat

Ghee comes packed with essential amino acids that could reduce belly fat. The omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids aid in losing body fat.

6. Has anti-inflammatory properties

Not only is ghee great for naturally treating burns on the body, it is also widely used for swelling. The fat is known to ease both inflammation and burns on the skin when applied to the affected area.

7. Aids the digestive system

Ghee can improve the digestive system as it is quite rich in butaric acid. It also helps with the stimulation of stomach acid secretion.

8. Strengthens the immune system


Loaded with a high content of rich antioxidants, ghee improves the body’s ability to absorb vitamins and minerals better, keeping the immune system strong.

Advertise / Anti-polio campaign: 5.7 million children to be immunized across K-P
« Last post by ayeshanoor on September 24, 2018, 12:50:23 PM »
With the first polio virus case recorded in the province in over a year, officials involved in the anti-polio campaigns have decided to further focus their activities to get rid of the crippling virus.
Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) health officials have stated that while only one such case has been reported in 2018 so far, they will not be taking it lightly as the case poses a serious threat to the entire programmed, adding that since the virus is circulating in the environment, activities will be further expanded to curb the virus’ movement.
So far in 2018, as many as four polio virus cases have been reported across the country. Hence, a comprehensive campaign is being launched from Monday (today) where over 5.7 million children under five-years-of-age will be vaccinated against the virus.
Apart from anti-polio drops, children will also be administered vitamin-A drops.
The decision was taken after preparedness reports were received from districts.
A review meeting was held at the K-P Emergency Operations Center (EOC) with EOC Coordinator Abid Wazir in the chair. It was attended by Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) Technical Focal Person Dr Imtiaz Ali Shah, United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Team Leader Dr Johar Khan, World Health Organisation (WHO) Team Leader Dr Abdi Nasir, and N-Stop Provincial Team Lead Dr Ijaz Ali Shah.
The meeting was told that all necessary logistical and security arrangements have been made and training of the teams have been completed to build their capacity with the required information and skills, necessary for carrying out a successful campaign.
Moreover, it was disclosed that around 21,948 teams have been constituted to carry out the campaign. Of these, 19,251 are mobile teams who will conduct the door-to-door vaccination campaign. Moreover, there will be 1,620 fixed, 895 transit and 182 roaming teams.
These teams will be managed by 5,060 area in-charges who have been deputed to ensure the quality of the campaign.
To guard the vaccination, as many as 30,000 security personnel have been deployed across the province, the meeting was told.
According to a statement issued by the EOC on Sunday, Wazir said that K-P has made tremendous progress and emphasized on the need for immunization in every round of anti-polio drive until the circulation was curbed and all children are protected from lifelong paralysis.
“The virus continues to circulate in Pakistan and Afghanistan and it will not stop unless every child is reached and vaccinated against the crippling virus in every campaign,” the statement quoted Wazir as saying, adding that the media has played an important role in educating people about the significance of the vaccination which was the only solution to defeating the virus.
Referring to the recent positive polio case discovered in Charsadda, the EOC coordinator for K-P stated that the case only served to prove that the virus remains in the environment in the province.
But, at the same time, it also suggests the success of the vaccination campaign as the infection could have left the child paralysed had she not been vaccinated multiple times.
Four poliovirus cases have been confirmed across the country in 2018. One has been confirmed in K-P and three others from Dukki area of Balochistan.
Earlier in September, the first polio positive case of the province in over a year was confirmed in Charsadda district. While stool samples from the toddler tested positive for the virus, the boy showed none of the physical symptoms which accompany infection. It was only the second such case to ever surface in the province in as many years.
In the first such case, two-year-old Zunaira hailing from Lakki Marwat had tested positive for the virus in September last year. Having received seven doses of vaccine as well as the inactivated polio vaccine, her body managed to fight off the virus and did not show any of the physical symptoms of the infection — i.e. physical crippling.
Health officials believe that the reason behind children resisting the virus is the repeated doses administered to them. Like Zunaira, Arsalan too had received multiple doses of the vaccine. Not only the oral polio vaccine (OPV) but the inactivated polio vaccine (IPV) as well which further boosts the immunity of children against the virus.

« Last post by ayeshanoor on September 22, 2018, 02:54:59 PM »
International aid agencies are losing the fight against famine in Yemen, where 3.5 million people may soon be added to the eight million Yemenis already facing starvation, the UN aid chief warned Friday.

A sharp drop in the value of Yemen’s currency that has sent fuel prices spiraling compounded with renewed fighting has led to a worsening of what the United Nations already considers the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.

“We are losing the fight against famine,” Mark Low cock, the under-secretary-general for humanitarian affairs, told the Security Council.

Advertise / K-P health officials fret over missing family planning target
« Last post by ayeshanoor on September 18, 2018, 02:43:08 PM »
With the population growing at a ratio of 2.41 per cent, the lower spending on family planning and reproductive health besides along with a host of other issues which have yet to be resolved, the country could fail to achieve its family planning (FP) target of 2020.
Failing this major target, the country would be on track to miss its Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) 2030 for the availability of services to women on family planning and reproductive health, just as was the case for the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
According to the census report for 2017, the population is growing at a rate of 2.41 per cent across the country. In Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, where the population nearly doubled from 17.7 million in 1998 to 30.52 million in 2017, the population has grown at a rate of 2.8 per cent.
Punjab clocked in a slower 2.1 per cent growth, 2.4 per cent for Sindh and 3.1 per cent for Balochistan.
Officials say that the London summit for FP2020 decided that family planning and reproductive health (FPRH) services will be provided to 120 million women in 71 countries across the world with some 7 million in Pakistan. This, however, may not be met.
Officials say some Rs 14.8 billion was allocated for family planning for a population of 220 million, or around Rs60 per individual — around Rs 250 less than international standards
“We are not even close to it,” explained National Health Services Regulation and Coordination Director General Abdul Ghaffar Khan to The Express Tribune.
During a quarterly meeting of the Country Engagement Working Group (CEWG) in the provincial capital last week, officials shared details of the programmers status in all the provinces.
The Pakistan Demographic Health Survey (PDHS) 2017 shows that 34 per cent of all married women use any method of family planning. Of these, 25 per cent opt for modern methods while nine per cent rely on traditional methods.
Among currently married women, the most popular modern family planning method is the male contraceptive and female sterilization (each used by nine per cent). Contraceptive prevalence rates (CPR) amongst married women vary with age, rising from seven per cent among women between the ages of 15-19, peaking at 48 per cent for women between the ages of 40-44, and then slightly declining to 37 per cent amongst women of 45-49 years of age.
More women in urban areas are more likely to use a contraceptive method than women in rural areas, 43 per cent versus 29 per cent respectively.
The use of contraceptive methods, both modern as well as traditional, increases with education and wealth, the PDHS report says.
For instance, 22 per cent of married women with no education used a modern method of contraception compared to 30 per cent of women with secondary or higher levels of education.
Similarly, seven per cent of currently married women with no education used a traditional method compared with 14 per cent of women who had a higher level of education.
