Football players of NK ”Čelik” headed this morning to Rovinj where they will have their last set of preparations for the remainder of the season. The manager of the team Vlado Jagodić said that the issues concerning the number of players are still not fully solved, but the primary issue of securing a goal keeper has been solved in the last minute. Adi Adilović will fill the position of the goal keeper of this football team for the next year. Adilović signed the contract with NK ”Čelik” and 12 years after he will play again for this club.NK ”Čelik” football players already finished one part of the preparations in Zenica and their manager is satisfied with their play. NK ”Čelik” will be preparing and training in Rovinj until the 19th of February where they will play five control matches. They will play their first match with ”Triglav” from Kranje on this Sunday, while other matches will be played on the 13th, 16th and 18th of February.
During malaria season, children who live in remote villages are at tremendous risk. When parasites transmitted by mosquitoes swarm into the brain, the disease can kill within 24 hours.Often parents do not realize quickly enough how close a toddler is to death. More than 90 percent of malaria deaths are in children under 5 years old.Now, after 13 years of effort, a set of stopgap measures to keep youngsters alive long enough to get them to a clinic has been developed. Initial testing suggests the measures can dramatically cut death rates; in one pilot project in Zambia, they dropped by 96 percent.The most important new element is artesunate delivered as a soft rectal suppository. Artesunate is the drug that hospitals inject into children in mortal danger from malaria infections of the brain. The new version comes in a form that can be given by a village health worker or even a parent.Rectal administration gets the drug into the blood quickly and avoids the possibility that the child will vomit up the medication. Ideally, each two-dose box kills enough parasites to buy six to 12 more hours for a child to reach higher-level care.The World Health Organization endorsed the idea of artesunate suppositories in 2005, but it was not until February that a version won full WHO approval. It is made by Cipla, the Indian company that in 2001 became the first to make inexpensive generic HIV drugs for Africa.A second artesunate suppository, by another Indian company, Strides, was approved in June.Other advances that help save children with malaria include rapid diagnostic tests, training local health workers to recognize the disease and a fleet of bicycle ambulances.The test gives a diagnosis in minutes with only a finger-prick drop of blood.The ambulances are metal carts about 6 feet long and 4 feet wide that can be made in a local welding shop and attached to most bicycles. A mother and child can ride flat or sitting, and the cart can navigate dirt tracks too narrow for cars.(Motorbike ambulances have been rolled out in India for use in roadless mountain areas and cities plagued by traffic jams, but they are wider and more expensive.)The multipronged program was tested during the 2017-2018 malaria season in a Zambian district where villages could be up to 10 miles over dirt tracks from any formal medical care.It dramatically cut child mortality rates, and in April the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation released a video describing the program’s success.An analysis released in August calculated that deaths were 96 percent lower than they would have been without the combination of suppositories, ambulances, test kits and extra training.(The comparison was imperfect, because the 2017-2018 season in the analysis appears to have been more severe than the previous season, and local clinics were well prepared in advance. Still, only three children died, which was far fewer than local health officials had seen before.)The pilot project was supported by Medicines for Malaria Venture, a partnership founded in 1999 to pursue new malaria drugs, and Transaid, a British charity that works to improve transportation in poor countries.c.2018 New York Times News Service Related Items
