6:35 pm
overview, here's how the content them an entity preventable death of children under the age of 5, reduction in the tunnel mentality and a stop to be a malaria and other neglected diseases. these are some of the goals that the u. n. and international community had set for 2030. but where are we today? africa still the continent with the highest rate of infant mortality. and while this has fallen by 3 percent a year, that is still not enough to achieve a 10 percent reduction goal. ah, in the 1990 s and early 2 thousands, africa was off the continent most badly. hit by h i v and aids. the good news is that it now has the largest drop in h i. v infections worldwide. there are currently still over 25000000 people living with h. i v in sub saharan africa, but 2 thirds of them on anti retroviral medication, which stops them for pulling ill and helps them to live with the virus aah! on the vaccine front, polio has been eradicated, and
6:36 pm
a new vaccine for malaria is supposed to reduce the number of malaria cases in children. ah, in the midst of the global corona, virus pandemic. however, many people are lamenting the fact that the vaccines, which meant to cup the spread of club at 19 reach, the african continent laughed ah, the w h rector tedra. deborah, yes was had repeatedly called unwritten nations to help poor a country vaccinate that population. but despite this, there has been no widespread outrage over the unequal distribution of the vaccines . so if you want to hear more about the differing health system, you can walk trust 50 based on back to the pretty. i spoke to health practitioners on canyon trying to access the corporate lighting vaccines. and they had quite a bit of bay that go to our youtube, paid the 77 percent. and you can watch them if we've learned one thing during the pandemic. if the importance of having good doctors, nurses, and health care staff who are not just willing but also able to go out and do their
6:37 pm
job every day. so we want it to accompany one of the health care workers for a day to get a glimpse into their work. so our next story takes us to cape town where 2 paramedics normally have to deal with the challenges of the job itself, but also faced the risks involved in working in so called red zone in a city areas with high violence and crime rates. in friday morning, atlanta hill hospital in cape town, the ambulance hub is buzzing as vehicles are being shunted and at restocked. it's the start of the shift for the 35 year old paramedic norm said ge after each morning based no, no reward. her work has in store for her, but this dave, many of the emergency calls are recorded related. now because of the conferences s o b, people are having children as off there why you can never expect anything, anything can just open. the job is as risky as it is tough. the majesty teams are regularly called to dangerous parts of the city. nonsense colleague,
6:38 pm
princess used to head out with the team, but now she's thankful for has a safe job at the office when you young. i think with, in terms of the adrenalin, the excitement, the hours that who work it's ideal, but the older you get who want a more monday through friday, 9 to 5. typically. that's not on the cuts when i'm sorry in how colleague month le, a busy 12 hour shift lies ahead of them. after just a few minutes on the clock. they received their fast coal. it's high sierra alpha 5, he is the do will fill a rate non salt water for the so called south and vision of the emergency medical service which covers the townships of the k flat. the suburbs created by south africa the apartheid regime to forcefully resetting people of color. today, it's a hot sport for violence and crime. it's simply too dangerous for the paramedics to drive to the patients. home alone is that cases they call
6:39 pm
a police escort. who are waiting for the escalade. now we found the escalade. when we're calling bay on arrival dumpster in. how could league man le check on the patient while the police secure the sin? there is a reason why this measures are in place. paramedics are regularly attacked by criminals while on duty, without police escorts, the ambulance can't drive into so called red zones, such as that will lead to township. this is also a disadvantage for the residents themselves. sometimes it takes longer, sometimes. a great depends if these are as quadrille as a politician, because due to crime in the area, they need to wait for this court to come to the residence for that is a bit delayed, a process. the patient is a 79 year old woman who is struggling to breathe. possibly a case of cove it man law and non. so supply the woman with oxygen and bring her to
6:40 pm
the nearest public hospital. in south africa, no one is refused treatment based on their capacity to pay back on the road. violence in the area often overshadows. they'll walk only 4 days. aaliyah. paramedics were robbed in a nearby suburb. one of $78.00 incidents in the last year alone. non so herself was held at gunpoint just a few months ago. luckily, she was able to escape, but the attack left her traumatized when the guy was coming, i literally saw may feel her lay go. greg, i thought he was going to shoot or some being all then i had to stay at home for awhile because i was not okay. i couldn't come back to work the last year. so the highest number of attacks in 5 years, despite the use of police escorts, getting an escort doesn't really sort out the situation. it's just sort of puts them in the shell at that moment. but as soon as there's no escort been made to get a tick rolled gun pointed, the next call out is to one in burke
6:41 pm
a dang reading area on the cave flat. another read. so he was saying there was a shooting in mining bag earlier, but now it's a, it's fine we can going in areas like this, the paramedics only performed necessary treatments on location and aim to leave as quickly as possible. despite the risks. nom sir, finds her walk, rewarding. when you know it was what i'll do as you can do according to a protocol, then you see they are better then you get a smile on your fee will be heading to save the life. risking your own life to save the lives of others, a job that requires courage and passion. now there are also some issues that we need to talk about when it comes to women's health. but one of the most important thing is access to menstrual products. and that many girls and women don't house.

6:45 pm
what we're talking about, this is what we mean hearing kenya, a packet of 14 retails for anywhere between a $130.00 to $150.00 shillings. that's just under 3 euros, and a woman may need anywhere between $10.00 to $15.00 of these depending on how heavy how flow is in a month. there are, of course alternatives, including the all my to one of the like to call it slightly more expensive of cost . they're also more affordable options. we're talking about the menstrual cup or even reusable sanitary pads, which can be washed. and that leaves us squarely here in a room where we meet the roof aiden, who is raising awareness on how to create access to the cemetery tower for women and girls, such as the ones we just saw in kenya, it's 2 thirds of women unable to afford the menstrual products 2 thirds. ready of women receive mental products from sexual partners. 1.2000000 girls every miss school because they don't have to manage their period claims period. i then this is
6:46 pm
where i call home. i grew up in i robi, lot, 18 years old. and then i traveled to the u. k. for my undergraduate degree. i was contemplating coming back home for a long time because i was away for almost 8 years. i got the independence that i was looking for living abroad, going to school, figuring out life in who i am. but i got to a point where for me i just could never see myself living that long. it never really felt like home. why for the long girls, it all started halfway through 2019. it was a lot to do with cost of menstrual products, even as university students living abroad. it was very expensive to buy a mental product and also the environmental impact that single use product tab. when the environment, when my sister and i 1st decided that this is what we're going to do,
6:47 pm
i was too scared to tell anybody. i didn't want people telling me no, don't do it. all people are going to say how you talking about period. my sister both in use list to leave it to her. after that it was a lot of support very quickly, especially because in a while community people do not talk about period is a conversation that was not unfamiliar people in my family. the only thing was my grandmother thinking, oh my goodness, people are going to see my grandchildren walking around, talking about pads or oh my goodness, you talk to your dad about these things. how does he just say to her about the benefits of the world? so there's a lot of cultural things funny because at the end of the day, like those comments were not said out of don't do it. there were still love encouragement, but it was the cultural side hearing what other people are going to say. the
6:48 pm
problem that we're trying to solve is cumulative impacts that lack of peer products has on a good life. it begins with you not being able to have pads or being shamed for maybe having a spain in class that you won't go to school month on month when you and your period after we spoke to a bunch of girls who go to school in mendera county and they told us that since the county lockdown top, and because of covert the free pads that were typically given by the government to school going girls all stopped. and so we're hearing crazy stories of girls engaging and transactional sex as young as 10 years olds to buy pads and other or getting money to buy that requirements. day on day they were using all sorts of scrap material. the unclean rags clay mattresses and whom we could find.
