Angela and Michael watched with joy as their second child sucked its thumb and kicked up its toes. Their delight was however, tempered with some disappointment as they could not completely see their baby’s face.
In my many years of practice of obstetrics and gynecology I have attended to thousands of women suffering from infertility due to many causes including abortion, legal or illegal.
Recently, I had this patient, who is now 40 years old; she has been married for over 7 years with no child. She came to me for an opinion, she had an ultrasound scan test, after the tests, I noticed that the endometrial cavity was thin and fibrosed with evidence of adhesion.
Over the last few days I received many calls from various citizens concerned about the Zika virus.
So far there are no reported cases in Kenya, but the relevant authorities are exercising enhanced surveillance and sharing information with global agencies.
Zika virus is an emerging mosquito-borne virus that was first identified in Uganda in 1947 in rhesus monkeys through a monitoring network of sylvatic yellow fever.
One of the arching goals of Vision 2030 is to make Kenya economically competitive on a global scale. Riding on this, the National Economic and Social Council envisioned a 24 hour economy, with a well-articulated process of implementation.
Twenty-four hour economies aim to increase efficiency and productivity, and satisfy consumer demands. There is increased flexibility in working hours.Machinery and spaces are not left idle at night and weekends. And more workers are usually needed to fill in the 24 hour shifts, potentially increasing employment opportunities.
