These setbacks

By Alex Osei-Boateng

ACCRA, March 9 (Xinhua) -- Ghanaian President Nana Akufo-Addo on Thursday pledged his government's support towards the revival of lesser known sporting disciplines.

Speaking to a delegation from the Ghana Boxing Authority (GBA) that paid a courtesy call on him at the Flagstaff House in Accra, President Akufo-Addo said he was determined, within the means of the government, to do everything possible to support the revival and growth of all sports, particularly boxing.

Ghana abounds in sporting talents across all fields.

Unfortunately, in the last few years, it has been made to seem that football is the only sport that the West African nation is good at.

"We have had outstanding talents and champions in athletics, boxing, table tennis, amongst others, and it is about time we nurtured all the talents in our country to make it possible for people who have the ability and talent in these disciplines also to emerge.

"Your visit is a good sign that we are all going to try and work together to revive Ghanaian sports across board," he said.

The delegation formally invited the Ghanaian leader to the "Freedom Fight Night" slated for Saturday, March 11, at the Bukom Boxing Arena in Accra, as part of the year-long celebration of Ghana's 60th Independence anniversary.

The "Freedom Fight Night" will feature lightweight world title challenger, Richard Commey, in a match against Belgium's Hedi Slimani for the World Boxing Council (WBC) International Silver Lightweight Title.

Another Ghanaian boxer, Fredrick Lawson, will take on Jamaica's Sakima Mullings for the WBC International Silver Welterweight Title while Bantamweight prospect Duke Micah will also come face to face with Mexican Jonathan Aguilar in a 12-round bout for the WBC International Silver Bantamweight Title.

WASHINGTON nike presto scontate , March 12 (Xinhua) -- The West African countries hardest hit by the worst-ever outbreak of Ebola could face a second health crisis brought by measles that could, at its worst, kill thousands more people than Ebola has unless programs to vaccinate children are quickly resumed, scientists warned Thursday.

Healthcare services in Liberia, Sierra Leone Scarpe Scontate Nike Air Max 97 OG Undefeated Bianche , and Guinea have been disrupted by the ongoing Ebola outbreak, and efforts to vaccinate children against measles, an infection that often follows such humanitarian crises, have been suspended.

As a result, a team of researchers from the U.S. and Britain predicted in the U.S. journal Science that a large measles outbreak could occur soon in the region Scarpe Scontate Uomo Nike Air Max 97 KPU Blu , with an impact that may exceed that of Ebola, which has caused over 24,000 cases and nearly 10,000 deaths since early 2014.

""The secondary effects of Ebola -- both in childhood infections and other health outcomes -- are potentially as devastating in terms of loss of life as the disease itself,"" said study leader Justin Lessler Uomo Nike Air Max 97 2017 Retro Verdi Scontate , an assistant professor in the Department of Epidemiology at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

Using computer simulations, Lessler and colleagues estimated that measles immunization in the three countries has fallen by 75 percent because of Ebola, leading to an increase in unvaccinated children of about 400,000 from nearly 800,000 prior to the crisis.

In the event of a large outbreak Uomo Nike Air Max 97 2017 Retro Bianche Scontate , the number of estimated measles cases will jump from 127,000 before the Ebola outbreak, to 227,000 after 18 months of interruption, resulting in 2 Scarpe Scontate Uomo Nike Air Max 97 Ultra Nere ,000 to 16, 000 additional deaths, according to the researchers.

At the high end, the death toll could exceed the nearly 10,000 killed by Ebola to date.

""Our primary scenario of a 75 percent reduction in vaccination rates may have been too pessimistic Scarpe Scontate Donna Nike Air Max 97 GS Rosa Bianche , but even a reduction in vaccination rates of 25 percent would be expected to result in tens of thousands of additional cases and 500 to 4,000 additional deaths,"" Lessler said.

In order to thwart a second public health disaster, the researchers suggested that public health programs aggressively resume vaccinations for children as soon as it is safe to do so.

The three main Ebola affected countries had seen a marked fall in cases in recent years due to vaccination efforts. Between 1994 and 2003, together they reported over 93 Balenciaga Speed Trainer Knit High Runner Nere Bianche Scontate ,000 cases, but this fell to just under 7,000 in the decade from 2004.

Measles is highly contagious and causes a red rash over the body, from which most people fully recover with two or three weeks. It can be prevented with a vaccine.

While Lessler and his colleagues only looked at the potential for a measles outbreak, he said the Ebola epidemic has also slowed delivery of the oral polio vaccine Uomo Nike Air Presto Safari Nere Gialle Scontate , a tuberculosis vaccine and the pentavalent vaccine, which protects against Haemophilus influenza type b, whooping cough, tetanus, hepatitis B and diphtheria.

Similarly Scarpe Uomo Nike Air Presto High Grigie Nere Scontate , there has been a negative impact on interventions against malaria and HIV.

""These setbacks have the potential to erode the substantial gains in the control of these diseases over recent decades,"" Lessler said. ""It could be a long time before the health care systems in the region recover from this.""
