The wider implications of a Greek eurozone exit. (newscientist)

25 Μάι 2012 • Science

THE human cost of Greece's predicament is becoming clear. As the world waits to see if its fractious leaders can secure the country's future, its citizens are finding it difficult to secure basic healthcare.
Economists and politicians fear that if Greece makes an ignominious exit from the eurozone - the "Grexit" scenario - there will be disastrous economic consequences for Europe. But the looming humanitarian crisis has widespread implications too.
Diseases common in Greece's southern neighbours, but unfamiliar in Europe, are starting to appear. Malaria, among others, has broken out recently. If the country's disease surveillance and control operations are compromised, these ailments may gain a stronghold there and could spread further afield.
What's more, the combination of economic collapse, political instability and a struggle to meet basic human needs provides the conditions for widespread civil unrest. Those who think that far-fetched should recall that modern Greece has only been truly democratic since 1974 - the same year, as it happens, that it originally eradicated malaria.
The recent experiences of Argentina, Sweden and Japan highlight the challenges to public health faced when an advanced economy goes into meltdown, along with some understanding of which remedies might be worth adopting. The European Union stands ready to commit vast resources to ensure the region's financial well-being; it should commit itself to securing its physical and mental health too.
The next challenge will be to repair or replace the eurozone, whatever becomes of Greece. Here there is less evidence to go on, and conventional economics is proving to be of little use. The risk is that the euro's next incarnation will prove just as flawed.
Network theory may provide some rigour. Seen through the lens of complexity science, the real problem is not any individual country's debt, but the structure of the eurozone.
If the theorists are right, the eurozone was built on quicksand from the start. When the time comes to rebuild, Europe should make sure it is laying down foundations of stone.

25th April World Day against Malaria

25 Απρ 2012 • Science

In 2010, about 3.3 billion people - almost half of the world's population - were at risk of malaria. Every year, this leads to about 216 million malaria cases and an estimated 655 000 deaths. People living in the poorest countries are the most vulnerable.

World Malaria Day - which was instituted by the World Health Assembly at its 60th session in May 2007 - is a day for recognizing the global effort to provide effective control of malaria. It is an opportunity:
  • for countries in the affected regions to learn from each other's experiences and support each other's efforts;
  • for new donors to join a global partnership against malaria;
  • for research and academic institutions to flag their scientific advances to both experts and general public; and
  • for international partners, companies and foundations to showcase their efforts and reflect on how to scale up what has worked.

Last week a team of scientists from KELLPNO and ECDC visited areas of Greece, where this year malaria outbreaks were diagnosed. The cases concerned people without a history of travel to malaria endemic countries.
Particularly in the area of Evia and Viotia prefecture, there was collaboration with scientists from BIOAPPLICATIONS Ltd company on the development of mosquito abatement program (photos).
The team visited Evia and Viotia prefecture consisted of: Tselentis I. (prof. of Μicrobiology), Dannis K. (Doctor KEELPNO), Dougas K. (Veterinarian KEELPNO) Kefalousi Ch. (Environmentalist KEELPNO), Dagas A. (Dentist, Min. of Health G), Lagos B (Public Health Supervisor Dep.), Annick Lenglet (Epidemiologist ECDC), Wim Van Bortel (Entomologist ECDC).
