drugs in the private sector from local pharmacies or village shops where the latest and most effective generation of drugs the so-called artemisinin-based combination therapies (ACTs) are often hard to find and expensive Instead many people end up with less expensive but ineffective drugs such as chloroquine and artemisinin monotherapies which increase the risk of drug resistance AMFm sought to address this problem through a global subsidy that helped make ACTs very cheap for importers in Africa The hope was that the drugs would trickle down to patients at low prices In a pilot held the past 2 years in seven countries the plan worked according to an independent evaluation published recently in The Lancet But critics of AMFm—including the US President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) and Oxfam a UK charity—argue that it’s not clear how many of the drugs reached the most vulnerable group—children under age 5 in poor areas—and that with malaria rates declining across Africa many drugs must have gone to people who did not have malaria at all Backers of AMFm say PMI which did not help pay for the program has lobbied hard behind the scenes to kill it a charge that PMI denies Yesterday as expected the Global Fund’s board decided neither to continue AMFm nor to kill it; instead after a transition year the fund will "integrate" the scheme into its normal funding activities which means individual countries can now apply for funds to subsidize malaria drugs in their private sector That means that governments will have to choose between subsidizing private sector drugs or funding bednets and drugs distributed through the public sector says Laxminarayan — and the private sector drugs will likely lose out One of the key goals of the subsidy is to prevent the emergence of resistance against ACTs which would be a major crisis; for individual countries investing in such a common good is no more attractive than investing in measures to prevent climate change he adds Moreover it appears there will be no new money beyond the more than $350 million that donors have so far paid for AMFm’s pilot In a recent piece in The Lancet the members of an Institute of Medicine panel that came up with the idea of a global subsidy in 2002 decried the plan to integrate AMFm into the fund as a way of "killing it slowly" But in a press release issued yesterday the Global Fund presented the measures as an improvement and expansion of the plan "By introducing modifications and integrating it into the Global Fund grant processes the Board has improved this valuable mechanism and made it available to all eligible countries that wish to implement it" said Gabriel Jaramillo general manager of the Global Fund in the statement Written by Ishi Khosla | Updated: April 8 2016 7:21 pm Remember to take your fast in the right spirit — give up life’s pleasures for nine days to bring back balance in your life Related News ‘Navratra’ —the nine-day fasting period rooted in the Hindu religion — offers some great opportunities to re-focus on your diet and take corrective measures However if made into a feast it can be more damaging than your usual diet and lead to weight gain These days even restaurants in our cities offer a range of speciality foods loaded with calories — the reason behind the post-Navratra pounds The practice of preparing oily deep-fried snacks and sweets in the name of tradition must be checked So remember to take your fast in the right spirit — give up life’s pleasures for nine days to bring back balance in your life During the Navratras alternate grains are eaten and traditional staples like wheat rice pulses and most vegetables are prohibited The usual range of cereals like rice wheat and millets are replaced by alternate cereals such as buckwheat chestnut sago amaranth and a special variety of rice known as samak rice (barnyard millet) In fact Amaranth chestnuts and samak are not true cereals Rather they are seeds of fruits These are also referred to as pseudo-cereals as they do not grow into grasses unlike wheat and rice Pseudo-cereals are higher in protein and rich in carbohydrates like the conventional cereals — wheat and rice A research on pseudo cereals like buckwheat quinoa and amaranth found that they had a higher percentage of protein than wheat but also better quality They are also better sources of vitamins and minerals including iron calcium and fibre One of the spin-offs of using alternative grains is the nutritional advantage of several traditional and rarely-used grains Most of the pseudo-cereals are gluten free and lend well to easy digestion There are people who do not observe the proper fast for all nine days but most avoid consuming eggs fish poultry meat and maybe even garlic and onions Many also avoid alcohol during this period One of the principles of healthy eating is bringing variety into your food and the forgoing of certain foods in favour of others takes care of this Here is how you can make the fasting period work in your favour Your healthy fasting programme # Eat small portions but do not starve # Include plenty of fluids water fresh fruit and vegetable juices # Include foods rich in micronutrients anti-oxidants and phytochemicals (disease fighting nutrients)—fruits and vegetables # Include variety through alternate foods cooked healthily and ensure good nutrition # Break your fast with coconut water/ milk/yoghurt/buttermilk/vegetable or fruit juice/soup/fruits # Do not eat too much immediately after breaking your fast Plan one major meal with alternate grains prepared in minimal oil and try to have it before sunset Snack on milk yoghurt fruits nuts seeds dry fruits and coconut Such a diet can help you drop kilos and it will also boost your energy Balancing everyday eating patterns with controlled eating — as done during a fast — when practised on a regular long-term basis can prove to be healthy It not only helps in controlling weight but also promotes digestion improves energy prevents diseases and promotes a feeling of lightness and well-being Author is a clinical nutritionist and founder of http://s.wwwtheweightmonitorcom and Whole Foods India
