  1. Methods of Humanitarian Involvement Chris Stout, PsyD Founding Director Center for Global Initiatives Visiting Scholar Chicago School of Professional Psychology

  3. They can be general.
  4. Or they can be very specific, like obstetric fistula repair surgery in postpartum African women.
  5. They can be academic.
  6. They can be in the field.
  7. They can be in advocacy.
  8. And they can be a combination.
  9. Successes and Challenges
  10. Infectious Disease USAID South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa Decreased newborn mortality via simplified treatment regimens with antibiotics by infections in neonates.
  11. Ebola Oxfam found the importance of: - An adequate number of trained health workers; - Available medicines; - Robust health information systems, including surveillance; - Appropriate infrastructure; - Sufficient public financing; and - A strong public sector to deliver equitable, quality services.
  12. Vaccines JAMA recently published another well-designed study of 95,727 children and found “…no harmful association between MMR vaccine receipt and ASD even among children already at higher risk for ASD.”
  13. Malaria Improved diagnostic tests used in routine antenatal care as well as more efficacious and safe drugs suitable during pregnancy have decreased mother to fetus malaria transmission.

  21. Boston Children's Hospital created HealthMap, a free tool utilizing online informal sources for disease outbreak monitoring and real-time surveillance of emerging public health threats — worldwide. Users are delivered real-time intelligence on a broad range of emerging infectious diseases, based on disparate data sources that results in a unified and comprehensive view of the current global state of infectious diseases and their effect on human and animal health.

  23. We developed a podcast to highlight interesting people that all have a humanitarian aspect to their lives or work.
  24. Reasons for Hope
  25. The Gates Foundation is very bullish on global health challenges. Eradication guinea worm, river blindness, polio, and elephantiasis by 2030. Gates’ optimism is based on evidence from work (and results) in Rwanda, Uganda, and Nepal, and elsewhere. No small challenge in breadth and depth, but I must say, he’s pretty convincing.
  26. Scholarships I put my money where my mouth is, and have founded a modest scholarship for engineering and technology students at my alma mater to travel abroad.
  27. While demand will likely never diminish, I’m happy to say that it seems that the supply side may be building to help address these needs. I went into a fair amount of detail on this in three volumes of my book-set, The New Humanitarians.
