Child Survival

I’ll be tuning into see the Child Survival Project sponsored by UNICEF. CNN will highlight four areas where UNICEF demonstrates its remarkable on-the-ground expertise in doing whatever it takes to save a child:

* Child protection in Iraq
* Water and sanitation in Laos
* HIV/AIDS in Peru
* Child survival interventions in Ethiopia

I thought I’d pass the news along. It will air at 8 pm and 11 pm ET on July 6th.

A Walk to Beautiful

This past month a Nova program called “A Walk to Beautiful” highlighted fistula and other gynecological problems affecting mothers in Ethiopia. Ethiopia has a population of 77 million but only 146 gynecologists and obstetricians, leaving perhaps 100,000 women to suffer fistulas. This documentary brought out the pain and yet the hope in a very dire circumstance. The show has stopped airing but can still be seen on the Internet using the following link.
