The Myth of the Diseased Immigrant
Want to know how far we’ve sunk? Here’s how far: There was never any chance at all that we would handle the crisis of thousands of unaccompanied immigrant children running for their lives and arriving at our border with any maturity or grace at all.

Proposed shake-up to drug pricing framework risks middle-income countries paying more
International medical humanitarian organization Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) has warned the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria of the consequences of a new pricing initiative that could result in middle-income countries paying significantly higher prices for medicines to combat diseases including HIV and tuberculosis. The warning comes ahead of the Global Fund replenishment conference in Washington, DC, this week. “MSF programs are already seeing how middle-income countries like Ukraine, Honduras, or Thailand pay exorbitant prices for drugs and vaccines because of the tiered pricing ...

Fighting an outbreak of dengue fever
Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) teams are battling to save children’s lives as a deadly outbreak of dengue hemorrhagic fever sweeps through Honduras’ second-largest city, San Pedro Sula.

Therapeutic Abortion Faces Political Resistance in Chile
Nearly a quarter century after Chile’s return to democracy, there is still a lack of political will to legalise therapeutic abortion, analysts say, even though Congress is debating several draft laws on the question. Natalia Flores, executive secretary of the Observatory on Gender Equity, says the legislation currently in place, which bans abortion under all circumstances, restricts the fundamental rights of women. “In Chile, the fact that abortion is illegal for any reason makes women second-class citizens, because they are not allowed to make decisions about their bodies, which is their basic territory,&rdquo...
