Quotes

"Affordable viral load tests have been the missing piece to detecting and preventing HIV treatment failure and helping people reach and maintain viral suppression."
"MSF applies very strict protocols of protection for its staff—before, during and after their time in a country affected by the current Ebola outbreak,” said Brice de le Vingne, MSF director of operations. “This dramatically reduces the risk of transmission of the disease. However, the risk is part of such an intervention, and sadly our teams are not spared.”"
...to respect CAR’s structures and health teams, whose sole purpose is to respond to the medical and humanitarian needs of the population they serve. "We hope that people understand it takes tranquility and a physical space to work,” said MSF head of mission Javier Eguren. “And, most importantly, we need to respect the physical and psychological integrity of our patients and employees.”"
I look at the newborn baby and think, "Life can be so unfair, you’re only a few hours old, but you’re fleeing violence already."
