1. US Security from Michael_Novakhov (87 sites): Eurasia Review: Many African Countries Still Have Wide Variation In Vaccine Coverage

Many African nations have made substantial progress in vaccinating
children against life-threatening diseases, however, within countries
wide discrepancies remain, according to a new scientific study.

The proportion of children receiving the full infant series of three
vaccinations against diphtheria, pertussis and tetanus (DPT3) increased
in almost three quarters of districts in Africa between 2000 and 2016.
In 29 of 52 nations studied, however, coverage with DPT3 varied by more
than 25% at the district level, highlighting substantial variation
within countries.

The study, funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and
conducted by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the
University of Washington, was published in the international medical
journal The Lancet.

“Despite substantial gains in coverage, progress was far from
universal,” said Dr. Jonathan Mosser, the lead author on the study.
“Routine childhood vaccinations are among the most successful and
cost-effective public health interventions, substantially contributing
to children living beyond their fifth birthdays. We continue to see wide
areas of low coverage at the local level, however, illustrating that
targeted improvements are needed to ensure that all children have access
to lifesaving immunizations.”

The study, “Mapping diphtheria-pertussis-tetanus vaccine coverage in
Africa, 2000-2016: a spatial and temporal modelling study,” maps
nations in fine-scale, 5×5 kilometer increments, so that health
officials nationally and locally can identify gaps in vaccine coverage
and target interventions with precision, tailoring health policy
decisions at local levels.

Using data from nearly 900,000 children, this analysis provides the
first annual estimates of childhood DPT3 coverage across the entire
African continent. It measures each community against the Global Vaccine
Action Plan benchmark of reaching 90% national coverage and 80% in
every district. These goals were established in 2012 by WHO member
nations, as well as other organizations, including UNICEF, the Gates
Foundation, and Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, a public-private health
partnership committed to increasing access to immunizations in poor
countries.

Of the 52 countries studied, only Morocco and Rwanda are estimated
to have already met the district-level goal of 80% coverage. In
contrast, on the local level, areas of DPT3 coverage at or below 25%
were found in several countries, including Nigeria, Chad, Ethiopia,
Somalia, and Angola. Moreover, dropout rates exceeding 25% were
identified in portions of Nigeria, Angola, Chad, Mali, Guinea, Liberia,
Equatorial Guinea, Central African Republic, South Africa, Somalia, and
Ethiopia.

“National estimates can mask subnational pockets of low coverage,
leaving children in at risk for preventable diseases and death,” Mosser
said. “Our study offers insights for nations’ health ministers and other
decision makers to better understand local patterns of vaccine coverage
and to identify where to improve vaccine delivery systems.”

An official with the Gates Foundation underscored the value of the study and its geospatial mapping techniques.

“We know that there are many children not getting the vaccines they
need, but there’s a real lack of detail about where those children are,”
said Violaine Mitchell, director of Vaccine Delivery at the Bill &
Melinda Gates Foundation. “These maps are a critical step forward in
revealing important detail on where the unvaccinated children are so
that tailored strategies can be developed to reach them and truly
achieve equitable coverage.”

1. US Security from Michael_Novakhov (87 sites): Eurasia Review: Sudan: PResident Al-Bashir Ousted, Detained, Army Seizes Power

(RFE/RL) — Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir has been ousted and arrested following nearly four months of protests against his 30-year rule, the defense minister says.

Speaking on state television on April 11, Awad Ibn Ouf said that Bashir had been detained “in a safe place” and that a military council will oversee a two-year transitional period followed by elections.

The announcement came as tens of thousands of people marched through the capital, Khartoum, some shouting that the “regime has fallen.”

Reports said that troops had deployed at key sites in the city, and raided Bashir’s Islamic movement, which is linked to the ruling party.

Protests against Bashir, who took power in a coup in 1989, have been under way since December.

They were originally sparked by price hikes and cash shortages, but they quickly turned into rallies against Bashir’s rule.

In Moscow, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov called for calm in Sudan and expressed hope that “whatever the outcome, Russian-Sudanese relations” will be a priority for Khartoum.

Russia’s Foreign Ministry said in January that “representatives of Russian private security companies, who have nothing to do with Russian state bodies, are operating” in the African country.

The “task” of the private security firms “is limited to training staff for the military and law enforcement agencies of the Republic of Sudan,” said ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova.

She made the comments after a story in the British press alleged that Russian mercenaries were helping Sudanese authorities crack down on the country’s mass street demonstrations.

1. US Security from Michael_Novakhov (87 sites): Eurasia Review: Iran: MPs Propose Motion To Ditch US Dollar In Foreign, Domestic Trade

A number of Iranian lawmakers have put forward a motion to completely remove the US dollar from the transactions made in foreign and domestic trade.

According to the motion, which has been received by the presiding
board of the parliament, any public or private transaction in US dollar
would be prohibited.

The law would be enforceable 60 days after being passed, according to the motion.

“Holders
of the (US) dollar have a deadline to convert their dollars into
commodities and rials or other currencies until the date of the
implementation of this law,” the motion says.

Last April, the Iranian cabinet approved a plan to replace the US dollar with euro in reporting foreign currency amounts.

Foreign
currency values began to rise in Iran after the US withdrew from the
2015 Iran nuclear deal in May 2018 and announced plans for a fresh wave
of sanctions against the Islamic Republic.

There was growing
demand for dollars among ordinary Iranians, who feared more plunge in
the value of their assets and growing price of goods, even those not
imported from abroad.

But the country soon took measures to arrest the national currency’s downward spiral.

Rial
began to bounce back against US dollar later in the year after the
Central Bank of Iran (CBI) unveiled a new package of regulations on
foreign currency trade which lifted a ban on the activity of money
exchange market
