    [Smallpox eradication] Certification de l'eradication de la variole

    Weekly Epidemiological Record / Releve Epidemiologique Hebdomadaire. 1980 Feb 1; 55(5):33-4.

    At its final meeting in December 1979, the Global Commission for the Certification of Smallpox Eradication concluded that smallpox eradication has been achieved on a worldwide basis and there is no evidence that smallpox will return as an endemic disease. The 65th session of the WHO's Executive Board, held on January 25, 1980, endorsed these conclusions and made 19 recommendations covering the areas of vaccination policy, reserve stocks of vaccine, investigation of suspected smallpox cases, laboratories retaining variola virus stocks, human monkeypox, laboratory investigations, documentation of the smallpox eradication program, and WHO headquarters staff. Sufficient freeze-dried smallpox vaccine to vaccinate 200 million people will be maintained by WHO in refrigerated depots in 2 countries. WHO will ensure that appropriate publications are produced describing smallpox and its eradication, with special emphasis on the principles and methods that are applicable to other programs.

    [Morocco: report of Mission on Needs Assessment for Population] Maroc: rapport de Mission sue l'evaluation des besoins d'aide en matiere de population.

    United Nations Fund for Population Activities [UNFPA]

    New York, UNFPA, June 1980. 111 p. (Report No. 29)

    In December 1979 a mission sponsored by UNFPA visited Morocco in order to evaluate the need for population assistance. Morocco experiences a high population growth rate, a high rate of malnutrition, infant mortality, and illiteracy, and low availability of health care in rural areas. The economy is in crisis, and population growth undermines the efforts toward development. It is suggested that population policy must be introduced along with social and economic development as part of an integrated development plan. The mission recommends exterior aid in cooperation with the government with the inception of the next Development Plan, and in particular the participation of UNFPA in data collection and research. In addition, the government of Morocco is urged to determine which agency is best suited to coordinate development and population activities, and cooperation with outside agencies.

    [Women and development: ideas and strategies of international organizations] Femmes et developpement: idees et strategies des organisations internationales.

    Mignot-Levebvre Y

    Revue Tiers Monde. 1980 Oct-Dec; 21(84):845-62.

    The International Year of the Woman, which marked the beginning in 1975 of the Decade of the Woman organized by UNESCO, had as its goal the sensibilization of the public to the problems of women, the diffusion of results of studies conducted on women in several countries, and the elaboration of new strategies to improve women's status worldwide. Factors which played a role in advertising worldwide discrimination against women were external to UNESCO, such as the birth of radical feminist movements in the 1960s and the diffusion of new feminist ideas by the mass media, and internal to UNESCO, such as the great number of studies sponsored and financed by UNESCO on the condition of women, and especially of third world women. The revision of strategies within UNESCO is visible in the changing themes of the studies sponsored from 1965 to 1980. Studies done between 1960-70 dealt essentially with the importance of primary, secondary, and university education for women. Studies done between 1970-75 investigated the relation between formal education and actual probability of women's employment. Studies sponsored between 1975-80 investigated the right of women to equal participation in the national economy and development. Unfortunately, the global budget dedicated to women's studies is only of 13.5 million French francs. Ongoing studies examine whether feminist ideas are applicable to third world countries, or if they are to be reviewed according to different societies and cultural environments.
