Dominica boasts high immunization coverage

first_imgLocalNews Dominica boasts high immunization coverage by: – June 29, 2012 Share Sharing is caring! Share 116 Views   one commentcenter_img Tweet Share Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Health, Helen Royer Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Health, Helen Royer, said though the ministry she represents is concerned that immunization regulations have “not” been enacted into law, she is “pleased” that Dominica “boasts” over 95 percent immunization coverage.Royer was a guest speaker at the expanded program of immunization (EPI) awards ceremony on Wednesday.“It is not mandatory for all children to be adequately vaccinated prior to school entry, however we are happy to report that immunization has been well accepted by the public and coverage rates continue to be high”.“The ministry of Health is cognizant of the fact that our success in immunization was not earned overnight, but it is a result of a long term planning which in itself is a laudable undertaking of further critical steps in nation building”.The EPI program was initiated in May of 1974 by the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), to make vaccines available to all children of the world and was implemented in Dominica in the late 1970’s.Royer noted that Dominica along with its regional partners now enjoy a new era of “improved” child health care and celebrates this mile stone by recognizing the “progress” that has been made by “reducing” vaccine preventable diseases that have cause death and disability to children around the world.“Presently our immunization coverage remains above 95% for all antigens and the Ministry of Health can boast of a very effective EPI program. Dominica can also boast its excellent primary health care system for program implementation and universal access to the services available”, Royer added.She further urged heath care professionals to “avoid” complacency because notwithstanding the incredible “successes”, the EPI program still faces “challenges”, some which she said cannot be address “solely” by the ministry and which will “necessitate” commitment by all parties.“We must renew the primary health care thrust and create a paradigm shift to address the emerging public threats together with rising patient expectations”.Recently, Dominica received a 1st place trophy from PHAO and WHO for its efforts at maintaining an efficient surveillance and reporting system.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more

Burqa banned in Ravanas Lanka why not in Rams Ayodhya Sena

first_imgMumbai: The Shiv Sena Wednesday welcomed Sri Lankan government’s decision to ban burqa and masks on grounds of national security and asked the Narendra Modi-led regime to follow suit. In an editorial in party mouthpiece Saamana, the Sena asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to follow Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisenas footsteps and ban burqas and other face-covering garments in India considering the threat it poses to the nations security. Also Read – 2019 most peaceful festive season for J&K: Jitendra SinghThe Sena mouthpiece said, “We welcome the decision by the Sri Lankan president. If this can happen in Ravana’s Lanka, when will it happen in Ram’s Ayodhya,” it said. The editorial said even France, New Zealand, Australia and England have banned burqa. “Why is India lagging behind,” it asked. The editorial said this task (of banning burqa) is as gutsy as the surgical strikes. “Face masks can prove detrimental in identifying people and the ban was necessary under emergency situation. The Sri Lankan president has shown courage. Modi should follow suit,” the editorial said. Meanwhile, AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi hit out at the Sena saying that the fight against terrorism does not entail the dress, but the mindset.last_img read more

Morocco Calls For international support to peace and stability in Central

first_imgRabat  –  Morocco continues to follow with concern ongoing developments in the Central African Republic (CAR) and calls for internationally-supported emergency measures to prevent deterioration of the situation, says a release of the Moroccan ministry of foreign affairs and cooperation.In this context, Morocco welcomes the adoption of the UN Security Council resolution 2127 that approves the deployment of the International Support Mission, an African Union (AU) peacekeeping force known by its French acronym MISCA, as well as the deployment of French troops to assist it for a period of 12 months as a new decisive step that will help stabilize and settle the crisis in this African country.Morocco also takes note of the UN Security Council decision to consider a possible transformation of MISCA into a UN peacekeeping operation if conditions on the ground require it. The Kingdom of Morocco, which has been maintaining for a long time brotherly relations with the CAR, embodied by active and diversified solidarity, has, consequently, decided, upon instructions of King Mohammed VI, to deploy elements from the Royal Armed Forces for the UN Integrated Peace building Office (BINUCA) and stands ready to support the Central African Republic in its path toward peace and stability, the release points out, before expressing thanks to France for its untiring efforts for peace in the African continent.last_img read more

Mens Lacrosse No 6 Buckeyes travel to Michigan to play in Midwest

Ohio State then-freshman Tre Leclaire maintains possession of the ball in the first quarter against Loyola Maryland in the first round of the NCAA tournament on May 14, 2017 at Ohio Stadium. Credit: Sheridan Hendrix | Oller ReporterAfter edging out Jacksonville for an overtime win on the road Sunday, the No. 6 Ohio State men’s lacrosse team will head to Pontiac, Michigan, this weekend to compete against No. 19 Marquette and Detroit Mercy in the Midwest Lacrosse Classic.The Buckeyes (4-0) hope to build a season-opening five-game winning streak Friday when they clash against their second ranked opponent of the season in the Golden Eagles.However, the team’s close call against Jacksonville is still fresh in its mind, and players have been going back to basics this week in practice to revamp their play in preparation for the pair of weekend games.“We weren’t pleased with how we played,” senior midfielder Bo Lori said. “We try to hold ourselves to a really high standard, and we just felt like even though we swept out a win we didn’t really meet our standard so this week’s just been hitting the reset button, just really focusing on ourselves.”Ohio State had a short week for introspection, leaving Thursday for the road trip. But senior defenseman Freddy Freibott said any anxiety or nervousness resulting from Sunday’s game was overshadowed by the hard work of the team’s sports performance staff and coaches.“[We’re] unpacking last week, definitely looking at the teachable moments and where we can definitely improve and how we can apply it to our opponent this weekend,” Freibott said.MarquetteThe Buckeyes’ first challenge of the tournament will come against the Golden Eagles, who are 2-0 this season. Marquette handily beat Detroit Mercy 13-6 on Saturday and narrowly avoided a defeat in its season opener against Jacksonville on Feb. 17, winning 11-10.Marquette attack and Big East freshman of the week Anthony Orsini, as well as junior attack John Wagner, will keep the Buckeyes busy on the defensive end. Orsini leads the team with six goals and is tied for first with Wagner at eight points. Orsini scored four of his six goals against Detroit Mercy.Senior goalie Cole Blazer will try to lock things down on Marquette’s defensive end. With this 7.94 goals-against average and .444 save percentage, he is undoubtedly drawing the attention of Ohio State attacks Tre Leclaire, Jack Jasinski and Colin Chell. The trio has accounted for 40 percent of the team’s offense thus far, so the Buckeyes will need them to find ways to generate offense against Blazer.Detroit MercyThe Titans (1-3) will face Ohio State Sunday after dropping their last two games to Jacksonville and Marquette.Freshman attack Brett Erskine leads Detroit with six goals, while junior attack Matthew Vangalen and freshman midfielder Brennan Kamish follow close behind, having each netted four goals.Ohio State will be trying to improve its 7-1 all-time record against Detroit, and will have to do so against redshirt freshman goalie Logan Shamblin, who has played every game of the Titans’ season thus far and has recorded 36 stops. He has allowed an average of 11.21 goals per game, but has a .444 save percentage.“I feel like our seven guys against their top seven is going to be enough no matter who they throw out,” Lori said on the two matchups facing Ohio State this weekend.The faceoff against the Golden Eagles will start at 5 p.m. Friday and the Buckeyes’ contest against the Titans will begin at 2 p.m. Sunday. read more

Frimpong on Nasri Hes an idiot

first_imgEmmanuel Frimpong has lambasted his former Arsenal teammate Samir Nasri in a recent interview with the TelegraphThe midfielder, who came through the ranks at youth level for Arsenal, spoke of an incident that had occurred in a 2-0 defeat to Liverpool. During the match Frimpong had been sent off with Nasri, who was on the verge of joining Manchester City at the time, being highly-critical of the Ghanaian. “When the game ended, we were in the dressing room and I expected Wenger to be really angry,” said Frimpong. “He was actually very calm, but for some reason Nasri came in and he was like: ‘We lost the game because of you’. “I was a young guy, didn’t really know what I was doing, and was devastated. I felt like I’d let everybody down and he was really blaming me, so I really didn’t like him. ““He always had a go at me if I gave the ball away in training and even said to me once: ‘I could buy you if I want’. To be honest, he probably could have done at the time, but still.” Frimpong later recalled another incident, later in the season, which had seen both men involved in a clash during a Carling Cup game at the Emirates. “People never really understand why that happened but I don’t like the guy,” he said. “The reason I don’t like him is because he’s an idiot. Plain and simple. I would never, ever have respect for him.”last_img read more
