• Senegal Joins Traditional & Modern Medicine

    Traditional medicine was once thought of as sorcery or quackery. But the craft is slowly gaining the respect of conventional medical practitioners as its methods and medicines are studied more fully. In Senegal, one group is promoting greater collaboration between practitioners of the two kinds of healing, and has taken measures to get rid of impostors. VOA's Scott Bobb has this report from Dakar.

  • Senegal strives to get medical care to all

    If the outbreak of Ebola in West Africa has exposed anything, it is the poor health facilities often stagnated due to poor governance in the region. However, in Senegal the government is going the extra mile to improve its innoculation programme for children to reduce the number of fatalities from preventable diseases. Among the challenges is the design of the vaccination coolers which, although specifically made for the task, are not suitable for travel accross the irregular terrain, according to some nurses. Al Jazeera's Nicolas Haque reports from Nioro, Senegal.

  • Olivia Wilde in Senegal with 1 Million Health Workers

    RYOT went with Olivia Wilde to Senegal to document first-hand the work of the incredible 1 Million Community Health Workers initiative. Started by Columbia's Earth Institute, the goal of the 1 Million Health Workers Campaign is, quite literally, to scale up to 1 million health workers in sub-Saharan African communities by 2015. By training community members in basic healthcare, family planning, sanitation counseling and providing them with medical supplies, this campaign will reduce maternal and infant death rates, provide HIV/AIDS, Malaria, Tuberculosis treatment and bring essential healthcare to regions in desperate need.

  • Palm wine tapping in the Casamance, Senegal

    From: http://beautifulsenegal.com Palm wine is a traditional alcoholic drink and is consumed by more than 10 million people in West Africa. Especially in southern Senegal the palm wine is widely available. The local people drink it as part of their ceremonies like weddings, child naming, family gatherings and even funerals. And then when there’s no party in town the people drink it, just because they fancy a drink. It can be drunk as a sweet juice fresh from the tree (my favorite). At that moment there is nearly no alcohol inside. Leave it for one to two hours and fermentation has started giving you a drink that is reasonably high in alcohol (up to 4%). The longer the palm wine is fermented the stronger it becomes, and after a day fermenting alcohol levels can get as high as 40%. By now ...

  • SOCIALAB: Antenal Care (ANC) testing in Senegal (short version)

    Laboratory screening tests which detect medical conditions that threaten maternal and child health constitute an important component of antenatal care (ANC). The SOCIALAB program reveals that in Senegal, less than a 1/3 of pregnant women receive the complete set of 7 recommended ANC tests. Less than 1/5 of the medical conditions detected are appropriately treated, in a context whereby technology for ANC laboratory testing is widely available. This movie uses the under-utilization of ANC testing in Senegal as a case. It was prepared (1) to advocate for trans-disciplinary research to obtain a better understanding of the multifactorial causes of health problems and (2) to propose a strategy for discussing, interpreting and sharing scientific results with international, national and local stak...

The longer the palm wine is fermented the stronger it becomes, and after a day fermenting alcohol levels can get as high as 40%. By now the drink is starting to turn into (and tastes like) vinegar. The fresh palm wine, locally called ‘bounok’ is a natural an healthy drink and within three hours after tapping acquires a nice aroma, and is sweet to taste. It's a great source of Vitamin B. The wine is said to have some medical applications and has been identified to boost brain power. You should give it a try on your next visit to Senegal.

The emphasis on knowledge translation substantially improved the relevance of results interpretation and contributed to the knowledge appropriation by policymakers, health staff and key players in laboratory strengthening. The video highlights the SOCIALAB scientists wearing their knowledge broker hat, to inform policymakers on ways to improve the quality of maternal care and to educate health staff on better practices in terms of ANC testing in Senegal.
