Uganda men complain about condom sizes being too small for their male organs. Big problem since use of condoms is encouraged to tackle high prevalence of HIV and STDs

History of condoms
Uganda’s Parliamentary Committee for HIV/AIDS has confirmed after touring areas worst hit by the virus that some men, “have bigger sexual organs and therefore should be considered for bigger condoms.”

“Some youth are complaining that the condoms they are being given are too short, their organs can’t fit in them.”
MP Merard Bitekyerezo told NTV Uganda, “Some youth are complaining that the condoms they are being given are too short, their organs can’t fit in them.”

Sarah Netalisile, another committee member says the small size is further, “exposing our younger boys and girls, and all those users of condoms, to the acquiring of HIV and AIDS.”

MPs across Uganda will be pushing for better condom supplies and bigger sized condoms in Uganda’s fight to curb HIV/Aids.
An estimated 80,000 lives are lost every year in Uganda due to the disease with 1.8 million people reportedly living in the country with the HIV infection.

Despite Uganda’s ‘ABC’ strategy –Abstinence, Be faithful, and use a Condom, dropping infection rate from 18% in 1992 to 6.4% in 2005, rates have taken on a rising trend with 7.2% infections reported in 2012.
Exploring the issue in India reveals that in 2006, the Indian Council of Medical Research reported an estimated 60% of men in Mumbai had penises that were at least 2.4 centimeters (one inch) shorter than the international condom sizes.

Is everyone moving from books to e-read?

I saw this online recently, i do not think people are not reading books anymore. May be because I am reading and most people around me are reading too. Studying has shifted from big texts to online documents. What is your take? Do you think education is only hard copy books or is information the same irregardless of mode of studying (online or in class)

Sad news: Cameroonian man found dead in Georgia USA. His body was found 2 weeks after his death

FULTON COUNTY, Ga. — Channel 2 Action News has learned the identity of the man police found murdered in his Fulton County home on Monday.

Police believe Dume Ejuba was dead for about two weeks at his home on Marcliff Court.

Channel 2’s Amy Napier Viteri was at the scene Monday night as investigators processed the scene at the house.

The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office said they are still investigating the cause of death.

They said the 51-year-old had traumatic injuries consistent with a homicide. His car was missing from the home but police said they’ve now located it.

A friend and former colleague gave Channel 2 a photo of Ejuba.

“It breaks my heart that he was there by himself like that because he really was a really nice guy,” said friend Wanda Freeman.

Freeman said she worked with Ejuba, originally from Cameroon, for 10 years at AT&T. She was stunned to hear police found the engineering assistant dead inside his home.

Police believe Ejuba was dead for about two weeks before neighbors noticed his front door ajar. According to the report, medics found a violent scene and Ejuba’s partially covered body was in the living room. Investigators said they recovered his green Nissan Maxima, which was missing from the home. They are now processing it for clues. Continue reading

Polio outbreak in Cameroon

In Cameroon, 2 new wild poliovirus type 1 (WPV1) cases were reported from the East Region, with onset of paralysis on 26 June 2014 and 9 July 2014. Genetic sequencing of these latest isolated viruses confirms continued wild poliovirus circulation, gaps in surveillance resulting in undetected transmission and geographic expansion to new areas of the country.

The outbreak in Cameroon has been ongoing since at least October 2013. The outbreak continued into 2014, with international spread to Equatorial Guinea. In March 2014, WHO elevated the risk assessment of international spread of polio from Cameroon to very high, due to expanding circulation and influx of vulnerable refugee populations from Central African Republic (CAR). This risk assessment remains in place. Further undetected circulation in Cameroon cannot be ruled out. Moreover, the risk of virus spreading into CAR is considered to be particularly high given the large-scale population movements from CAR into Cameroon. Continue reading
