Cholera Epidemic in Haiti

Cholera is a potentially fatal bacterial infection of the small intestine that causes severe diarrhea and dehydration. The disease is most often transmitted through the consumption of infected food or water. The water might be contaminated by the feces of an infected person or untreated sewage, and food might be contaminated by contaminated water or if prepared by an infected person.

Photoshare and Supply Chain Management & Transportation

Supply chain management is the management of a network of interconnected businesses involved in the ultimate provision of products and services required by customers. Many problems in developing countries today are problems of access to the existing resources. Programs that are aimed at promoting health and development often struggle because of a lack of transportation and supply of the resources needed to implement the programs. For example, a family planning program's success depends on a well-managed supply chain for the delivery of contraceptives.

Injectable Contraceptive Use Is On The Rise

Injectable contraceptives — primarily in the form of depot medroxyprogesterone acetate (DMPA) — are rapidly becoming the most popular modern contraceptive in sub-Saharan Africa. They are safe, effective, convenient and they can be used discreetly, without a partner's knowledge. For these reasons the potential demand for DMPA is high in Madagascar and elsewhere.
