NanoViricides

NanoViricides CEO Dr Anil Diwan joined Steve Darling from Proactive to share exciting updates on their antiviral drug candidate, NV 387. The drug, developed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, demonstrated exceptional safety in clinical trials, even at the highest dose levels, with no adverse events reported.

Africa CDC and Mastercard Foundation launch phase 2 of the Saving Lives and Livelihoods (SLL) initiative to strengthen Africa’s public health systems

Mastercard Foundation

LUSAKA, ZAMBIA - African Media Agency - 29 November 2023 - The Africa CDC and the Mastercard Foundation have entered a new phase of their partnership on the Saving Lives and Livelihoods initiative in the aftermath of WHO's declaration of the end of COVID-19 pandemic as a public health emergency of international concern. The Saving Lives and Livelihoods initiative, a bold and unprecedented $1.5 billion partnership, was launched in June 2021. This innovative and ground-breaking partnership aimed to purchase COVID-19 vaccines, roll out vaccinations, build the vaccine manufacturing workforce for the continent, and strengthen the Africa CDC to ensure long-term health security for Africa. Unprecedented in scale, speed and inclusion of African organisations, the partnership has contributed to the continent's current vaccination rate of 53 per cent of the target population, up from just 3 per cent at the start of the initiative. The partnership has also trained, equipped, and deployed 38,000 health workers, creating a robust frontline in safeguarding public health locally. It has provided job opportunities for 23,000 individuals and integrated over 600 COVID-19 vaccination centres into healthcare systems. Additionally, this initiative led to the expansion of genomic testing capabilities from seven to 40 laboratories across the continent. The review of Phase 1 of this initiative, among fifteen implementing partners across 29 countries, conducted by Deloitte, indicates that the vast majority of funds disbursed were used effectively and as intended. Likewise, ongoing monitoring by KPMG has confirmed that partners not only showed strength in programmatic results but also improved the institutional capacity for greater sustainability and institutional resilience. "Our Saving Lives and Livelihoods initiative with the Mastercard Foundation has shown the power of respectful and action-oriented partnerships rooted in collaboration, coordination and systems strengthening. The experience and learnings from Phase I will enable us to move with greater speed and scale to deliver with accelerated impact to our member states" said Dr. Jean Kaseya, Director General of the Africa CDC. In its second phase, the partnership will expand its scope and scale, focusing on completing the vaccination of healthcare workers and vulnerable groups, building a robust workforce of community health workers, ensuring pandemic preparedness by bolstering national public health institutions, laboratory capacities, data access and quality, local manufacturing of vaccines, therapeutics and diagnostics, and continuing strengthening of Africa CDC. "While the global pandemic may be declared over, the need to continue investing in our health systems, build our workforce and prepare for future pandemics remains urgent. This partnership will ensure that we have strong health institutions and systems. We aim to enable thousands of young people to build their careers in healthcare and contribute to improving lives in Africa," said Reeta Roy, President, and CEO of the Mastercard Foundation. The Saving Lives and Livelihoods initiative stands out as a testament to the power of African-led health solutions. As it progresses to its next phase, partnerships will continue to play a crucial role in shaping a New Public Health Order for Africa. Africa CDC and the Mastercard Foundation remain committed to improving the health and well-being of all Africans. About the Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (Africa CDC) Africa CDC is a continental autonomous health agency of the African Union established to support public health initiatives of Member States and strengthen the capacity of their public health institutions to detect, prevent, control, and respond quickly and effectively to disease threats.

Healthy Habits for your Family This Fall. Registered Dietician Nutritionist Provides Tips to Enhance Overall Wellness

YourUpdateTV

A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/Z87XU8x8YEU As the daylight hours get shorter and time spent outside exercising decreases, many people focus on their diets to stay healthy and happy throughout the coming months. The U.S. Department of Agriculture recommends eating meals made up of fruits, vegetables, lean meats, and low-fat dairy products. In fact, a healthy dietary pattern can benefit all individuals regardless of age, race, ethnicity, or current health status. For picky eaters, it is recommended that parents and caregivers continue to introduce new food and flavors, while being a role model with a healthy diet. A few core elements include vegetables of all types, dark green, red and orange, beans, peas, and lentils. Whole fruits are an important dietary staple, along with whole grains. Foods packed with protein, like poultry and eggs, seafood, nuts, and soy products have also been linked to healthier outcomes. Protein helps protect and build lean muscle mass, while promoting better brain chemistry. Fitness, wellness, and nutrition experts all agree that a balanced diet helps the brain function properly. B-vitamins are key nutrients needed for making the brain chemicals known to influence how awake and energized people feel in the morning. Optimal levels of serotonin require sufficient Vitamin D, B6, folate and amino acids. Syn has compiled a list of tips to help families enhance their nutrition and wellness plans throughout the fall and winter months. DAIRY ALTERNATIVES: Syn highlights the importance of moderation for everything we put into our bodies. That’s why she recommends starting the day with breakfast, while including Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Almondmilk. “It’s a perfect dairy milk alternative. I love how it tastes and it’s delicious in cereal and smoothies,” says Syn. Almond Breeze Almondmilk is nutritious and fortified with calcium and vitamins, while being free of gluten, lactose, saturated fat, and cholesterol. Among its wide portfolio of flavors, Almond Breeze comes in unsweetened varieties, including Unsweetened Original and Unsweetened Vanilla—with all the goodness of almonds. Direct link: https://www.bluediamond.com/brand/almond-breeze Social media handles: Facebook: Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Instagram: @almondbreeze X (Twitter): @AlmondBreeze FLAVORFUL CHOICES: As a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, Syn, is always on the lookout for ways to enhance diets with a focus on health and wellness. She says juices are another way to add a little flavor into our daily routines. Wonder Beet, formally known as Beetology, is a cold pressed juice that champions the power of beets in four different ways. Wonder Beet, formerly Beetology™, champions the power of beets in four exceptional mixes: Beet + Lemon + Ginger, Beet + Veggie, Beet + Berry, and Beet + Cherry. Known as a high-nutrition, low-calorie superfood, beets are perfect for those seeking an all-natural boost of vitality for long-lasting, clean energy. These juices contain no artificial additives or added sugars. Syn says they are “Just pure, unadulterated 100% organic ingredients, ensuring every sip is delicious, satisfying, and curiously good." Wonder Beet is part of the Wonder Juiced esteemed beverage collection made up of 100% all-natural cold-press juices originating from organic farms and picked at peak freshness, These juices are high-nutrition and low-calorie. There are no artificial additives or added sugars – just 100% organic fruits and vegetables. A great way to enjoy great flavor while getting your vitamins from the fruit and veggies. In addition to juices, Syn has a set her sights on salads. She had a series on social media called, “Salads That Aren’t Boring.” Now, the nutritionist tries to turn a salad zero into a salad hero. Her number one tip, “It really comes down to choosing your favorite greens, fruits, and veggies,” adding, “It doesn’t have to be complex, but it’s often the dressing that makes a salad taste so good.” One of her go-to dressings is the all-natural Mighty Sesame Squeeze and Serve Organic Tahini. It is made with the highest quality sesame seeds sustainably sourced. Syn says Mighty Sesame Tahini has a delicious, creamy texture that is a “better for you choice” as a dressing, dip, or topping for wraps and sandwiches. She also points out how this dressing is packed with protein and calcium. Additionally, Mighty Sesame Tahini is vegan, gluten and dairy free, kosher and halal.

Syn says it’s a good idea to add more fish to your meal plans. MOWI is a leading farm-raised Atlantic Salmon producer and is boldly challenging the status quo within the seafood industry. The Salmon is BAP certified, which is one of the highest standards in sustainability in the seafood industry. Syn says this brand is of excellent taste and quality, adding “You can feel the delicate Omega 3 element and natural oil, which so good for you in salmon.” The Fresh MOWI Atlantic Salmon comes from the farm fresh, in optimum temperature, then freshly processed and packed with care in the United States. This product is available at nationwide retailers in only 24 hours from processing. Additionally, Syn points out that the salmon comes perfectly portioned in 6 oz. slices, whether seasoned or plain varieties. “It’s got a beautiful orange color, great marbling, moist and texture. And the best thing, it is fresh and has not been frozen,” says Syn. The Skin Pack technology allows the product to breathe out, but nothing breathes in, extending the products shelf life and reduces potential damage.

To help address the need, Good Measure, a new food brand, has launched a portfolio of blood sugar-friendly snacks.

All Good Measure snacks contain five or fewer grams of Net Glycemic Carbs, ensuring little impact on blood sugar. Additionally, every snack is made with nutrient-rich ingredients to provide nutrition in every bite – all while keeping flavor front and center.
