10:35 am
overview, here's how the continents them an entity preventable death of children under the age of 5, reduction in the tunnel mortality and a stop to be a malaria and other neglected diseases. these are some of the goals at the u. n. an 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 over the continent most badly hit by a tribute 8th. 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 pointing ill and helps them to live with the virus. ah, on the vaccine front, polio has been eradicated, and
10:36 am
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 are meant to cup the spanish club at 19 reach, the african continent laughed ah, the w h o z director tedra. deborah, yes. who's had repeatedly called unwritten nations to help poor countries vaccinate their 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 watch us 50 based on vaccine. i spoke to health practitioners and canyon trying to access the corporate 19 vaccines, the leg quite a bit to say that go to our youtube, paid that like 70 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
10:37 am
job every day. so we want to our company, 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 to paramedics not only 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. with friday morning, atlanta hill hospital in cape town, the ambulance hub is buzzing as vehicles are being shunted and restocked. it's the start of the shift for the 3rd 5 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 quarter, this s o b, people are having sadness off there, right? 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 princess used
10:38 am
to head out with the team, but now she's thankful for has a safe joke at the office when you young. i think with, in terms of the adrenaline, the excitement, the hours that who work it's ideal, but the older you get to want a more monday to friday, 9 to 5. typically. that's not on the cuts. one, 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 to call sierra alpha 5. he is the do fellow rate non so it works for the so called south and an of the emergency medical service which covers the townships of the key flap, the suburbs, created by south africa the apartheid regime to forcefully resetting people of color to day. 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
10:39 am
a police escort who are waiting for the s got. now we found this quote, when we're calling the warner arrival dancer in how cool league manner 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 a squadron at the 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 to process. the patient is a 79 year old woman who is struggling to breathe, possibly a case of cov, it, mandela and non. so supply the woman with oxygen and bring her to the nearest
10:40 am
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 overshadowed their walk. only 4 days earlier, paramedics were robbed in a nearby suburb, one of 78 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 little i'm so my father lay go, greg. i thought he was going to shoot or some being all, then i had to stay at home for a while 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 just sort of puts them in the shell at that moment. but as soon as there's no escort, then they to get a tick rolled gun pointed. the next call out is to man and berg,
10:41 am
a dang read. an area on the cave flat. another red song. 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 at you can do according to a protocol, then you see they are better then you get a smile on your feet. you'll 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 have. now, if you follow us on youtube,
10:42 am
you might know our theories goals of mute, where aspiring young goals reports about topics important to them. so here's catherine milan go reporting on access to sally. 3 products with going on. you appeared at school without sanitary peds. well, i've witnessed this happening to men of my peers, particularly from disadvantaged families here in bab, with some of them even me school data for lack of sanitary pits. as a child parliamentarian, i've taken this matter into my onions to lobby for free access of sunny's hideaway . i am catherine mora, male angle from edward r, as in bob with leticia. kyra alia, friends are walking back, and the girls are part of
10:43 am
a group of charge. parliamentarians lobbying for pre sanitary bid, and the poor community of equity is involved with capital iraq galaxy. this politi child got upset, planetary head. these i and claimants, and most parents cannot afford even cheaper or you feel good. mother feels to buy you those funny teddy that we seen. sure. what do you use in some times i had to listen to and clothes and you know, some times i had to miss me, listen to it. and even i won't even add 10 t i own boy g. and again, you know, did that to include the, has not even gone for did was only is goes, you know, even clean screens even walking around the school is difficult. leticia. it's been my this child was to go, bear, bear with me,
10:44 am
let alone find it had appeared, squeaking butcher, she survived for vending her door, mom's. it's quite a big challenge. the money in here did, my kid is not meaningful. it is only enough for us to basic food. i cannot then afford to buy so me 30 kids. i can only afford to get there to shift the pieces of fair bridge to use his secretary peers. we can only appeal to those who are able to help us jose gon, oh i know, but the rock i managed to avoid this was they're both sandy teddy paid, paid and denied me, but it can only be achieved debate. begin together till influenza chained. not only yes, barbara, but i know for africa. well, go off. i am catherine, milan, i, in babylon. right? so change all over africa. and just to be clear,
10:45 am
what we're talking about. this is what we mean here in kenya, a packet of 14 retails for anywhere between a 130 to a 150 shillings. that's just under 3 euros. and the 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 lexical. it slightly more expensive of cost. they're also more affordable options. we're talking about the mental 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 towels for women and girls, such as the ones we just saw in kenya, it's 2 thirds of women unable to afford menstrual products. 2 thirds. ready of women receive mental products from sexual partners. 1.2000000 girls every m miss school because they don't have to manage their period claims period. i. then this
10:46 am
is where i call home. i grew up in a row be last 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 lamb. 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 material products and also the environmental impact that single use product tab on the environment. when my sister and i 1st decided that this is what we're going to do,
10:47 am
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 the community people do not talk about periods is a conversation that was not unfamiliar to 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 was the love encouragement, but it was the cultural side hearing what other people are going to say. the
10:48 am
problem that we're trying to solve is cumulative impacts that lack of peer products has on a go up life. it begins with you not being able to have pads or being shamed for maybe having a spin in class that you won't go to school month on month when you're on 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, anything we could find. so that kind of pushed us to just thought early where we
10:49 am
want to achieve. it's not just only giving paths, it is for parents to not have such a detrimental impact. ready ready on that dre upon not one, not clip chimney teeny phantom down as when it came to me moving back. i had had it in my notice my boss was like, oh just stay a little bit longer. let us help, let us find just a replacement florida. and then when that happened and london went to lockdown and i was like, oh my god, i alone like how am i going to do this? um i part of my stuff and i came back, i think it was the best decision i ever made for somebody else who was in my shoes
10:50 am
and trying to figure out whether or not they should move back. i think you should definitely ask yourself if you're really ready. and i think if i came sooner i would have always missed it. i think i would have wanted to go back. i may have regretted my choice, but because i felt like i had done everything i needed to do, i had no 2nd thoughts about it. talking about top would hopping for talking about sex condom, you protecting yourself and others. by the way, is that still a top topic for you, or are you able to talk about it freely with your sexual partner, health professionals, or maybe even present relative? why don't you let me know in the comments? well, we're about to meet somebody who has no qualms talking about sex, and here he is. the king of condom. be who? his majesty the king of current will join him in his kingdom. he bear a slum in b, kenya, africa, largest athens. love is my kingdom, these my territory,
