Hepatitis E virus

Hep E virusД-р Мария Пишмишева1, Елица Голкочева-Маркова2, проф. Радка Аргирова3

1–Началник Инф. Клиника, МБАЛ – Пазарджик,

2_Нац. Референтна Лаборатория по хепатити, Отдел по вирусология, Нац. Център по заразни и паразитни болести, София,

3_Сектор „Имунология и молекулярно-биологична диагностика, Аджибадем СитиКлиник ДКЦ Токуда - София

Въведение: По данни на Европейския Център за превенция и контрол на болестите  (ECDC) инфекцията с хепатит Е в Европа през последните години е нарастнала повече от 10-кратно – от 514 случая през 2005, в 2015 г. те вече са 5617 . Повод за безпокойство е, че тестирането, диагностицирането и надзора на HEV  се извършва практически само в 20 Европейски страни /България не е сред тях/. Профилът на болния с  клинично проявен хепатит Е в Европа е причинен от HEV – генотип 3 и може да се определи като мъж на възраст около и над 50 години, често с предшестващи чернодробни заболявания и отрицателни маркери за другите вирусни хепатити. Броят на заразените лица нараства и в страни без епидемиологичен надзор на инфекцията. Цел на настоящия обзор е популяризиране на HEV инфекцията сред медицинската общественост у нас, нейното диагностициране, усложнения, лечение. Надяваме се в близко бъдеще тази инфекция да бъде включена в епиднадзора на страната наравно с останалите хепатитни вируси.

Poland will catalyze the process in whole Europe

Interview with Krystyna Kacpura, Executive Director of the Federation for Women and Reproductive Health, Poland

Krystyna, can you say just few sentences for you and your organization and what happens in Poland?
The Federation for Women and Family Planning has been existed for 25 years. This year we celebrate our 25 anniversary. I am the executive director of the Federation. As for the situation of the reproductive rights of the women in Poland: currently we have very restrictive law. The law is more restrictive in practice than in paper. The law allows abortion in 3 cases – when the fetus is seriously damaged, in cases of rape, or incest and when there is a danger to the women’s health and life. This law doesn’t work in practice and there are many circumstances for this. There are some limitations as for instance conscious objection or prolonged procedures for the demanded services. There are many other barriers to access the desired services.

Development cooperation and Bulgaria

DiplomacyVentsislav Kirkov, "Diplomacy" magazine, issue 15 - october-december 2015

In 2007, the Bulgarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs promulgated a concept of Bulgaria’s participation in international development cooperation. This document set out the principles, the tasks, and the priorities of the development policy of this country, along with the ways in which this policy was going to be funded. The International Development Cooperation Concept outlined the Bulgarian participation in the development policies on a bilateral and a multilateral basis, meaning that the funding was going to be provided through bilateral and multilateral channels.
By multilateral funding channels, I mean the varied organizations which were working in the area of attaining the topical, at the time, Millennium Development Goals. Among these organizations ere some UN agencies, the IMF, and some EU institutions dealing with the formulation and implementation of the international development cooperation policies. The bilateral unding channels involved Bulgaria’s participation in small projects, which did not require any serious funding, participation in joint projects, along with some other international donors, as well as the provision of technical aid. At that time, Bulgaria had quite recently acceded to the European Union and was, therefore, considered to be suitable for using the bilateral funding pproach because this approach was going to help the country gain the relevant experience and implement a consistent and efficient development policy in line with its own foreign policy.
Participation in the international development cooperation policies is, indeed, viewed as a modern and flexible instrument within the framework of the general foreign policy of the ountry. This could become most visible in the implementation of joint bilateral projects and programmes. The Bulgarian cultural and historical heritage makes it possible for the country to cquire stable positions in a number of countries in which the leading EU Member States do not have long-standing traditions. Hence, the development of bilateral relations could be regarded s an expression of Bulgaria’s willingness to empathize with the countries with which it has been maintaining long-standing traditions of reliable partnerships in the political, economic, and cultural sphere.

The benefits of having a young intern for a week

Sofia, October 1-5, 2018

During the week from October 1st to October 5th Lina Fadl, a 15 year old schoolgirl from the Victor Hugo French Lycee in Sofia took her internship with us at BFPA’s Sofia office. In the photo Lina is with her back to the camera, since she doesn’t like to be photographed, but her Biology teacher, who visited us to see how things are happening, can be seen well. It was a great joy for our team to be reinforced by someone with a fresh outlook and thinking. As always in such cases, the benefits were mutual – Lina learned from us how is functioning of a non-government organization, how to elaborate project proposals,  how to budget and report them, how to go on when your project proposal isn’t approved, why a Pap-smear is important, why besides HIV testing, counseling and support for people coming in for VCT is especially important, how and why to use educational playing cards, which other organizations are working in the field of education and healthcare, what socially responsible business means, and much more.
