In Pictures: The World's 25 Dirtiest Cities

No. 6: Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

Mercer Health and Sanitation Index Score: 37.9

Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, faces one of the worst sanitation problems on both the continent of Africa as well as in the world. The lack of adequate sanitation programs results in infant mortality, low life expectancy and the transmission of water-borne diseases.

A WALK TO BEAUTIFUL

www.walktobeautiful.com


Image

We all know that life can be difficult in Africa, especially for women, so a film about devastating childbirth injuries in Ethiopia had about as much initial appeal to me as preparing tax statements. What’s surprising then is just how life-affirming and positive this film is, both for its subjects and its viewers.

The documentary focuses on five Ethiopian women who suffered through prolonged obstructed childbirth without medical assistance. As a result, their children were stillborn and they were left with seemingly permanent incontinence due to obstetric fistula, a hole in the birth canal wall between the bladder, rectum, or both. This incontinence and resulting stench make them social pariahs in their community, forcing them to live shunned existences on the fringes of society. Like I said, not exactly the cheeriest subject matter. However, the film is centered on their voyages of hope, not their initial despair.

In the city of Addis Ababa, a large hospital has been caring for fistula patients for decades. The hospital’s sole mission is to examine obstetric fistula cases and either surgically correct them or train the patients to use special exercises to improve their conditions. The hospital appears to be always at full capacity, a testament to the severity and prevalence of the issue. Sadly, the doctors relate that there are far more affected people throughout the country that may never be seen due to far-flung remote communities and lack of knowledge about the hospital’s existence. Even the patients who know about the hospital still have to find a way to reach it, meaning a days-long hike for most. As an example of the travel burden for patients, one doctor tells of a patient who begged for cash for a full six years before saving up enough for a bus fare to the hospital.

As described in the film, the patients are generally susceptible to fistula due to a combination of very early childbirth, undernourishment, as well as heavy labor as children that doesn’t give the girls a chance to physically develop enough to successfully deliver a child. After hauling heavy loads around all through their childhood, then sometimes marrying and conceiving before they even enter their teens, the girls are left with stunted bodies that can’t expand far enough to give birth. This results in prolonged labor lasting up to 10 days where the outcome is death for the baby and significant odds of fistula. The biggest contributor to the problem is lack of proper medical care, but due to their remote communities hours from the nearest road, let alone medical facility, they’re left with no other option than natural childbirth.

The primary subjects in the film share their home lives with the camera crew, exposing the dim hovels they’ve been relegated to as well as their virtual ghost-like presence in their communities. They each have heart-wrenching stories that differ to some extent but all lead to the hospital where they’re shocked to find so many others with the same problem. This fosters a sense of sisterhood, giving the patients interpersonal relationships that they’ve been lacking for years in many cases. The outcome of their cases also varies, but in all cases they’re far better off than they were prior to entering the hospital.

The film does a masterful job of exposing the issue, educating viewers, and sharing these intimate and ultimately uplifting stories that humanize this tragedy. It also shows the beauty of the countryside and its people through stunning photography, highlighting Ethiopia’s lush landscape and colorful, vibrant communities. Its subjects will touch even the chilliest of hearts, and their determined quests to return to normal lives give the film remarkable power, serving as an enthralling triumph of the human spirit.

A Walk to Beautiful is now playing in limited theatrical release in New York and Los Angeles. It will be broadcast on the PBS series Nova later this year. For more information, visit http://www.walktobeautiful.com/.

The golden age of Ethiopian music

For 17 years, Addis Ababa resounded to African rhythms, Western pop, and European band music. Now that heady mix is coming to the UK.

Mothers of Ethiopia

Hanna Ingber Win, the Huffington Post's World Editor, was recently invited by the UN Population Fund to visit its maternal health programs in Ethiopia, which has one of the world's worst health care systems. In the U.S., a woman has a 1 in 4,800 chance of dying from complications due to pregnancy or childbirth in her lifetime. In Ethiopia, a woman has a 1 in 27 chance of dying.

A special report on telecoms in emerging markets

http://www.economist.com/specialreports/displaystory.cfm?story_id=14483872&CFID=91210159&CFTOKEN=10426204


There is clear evidence that liberalisation drives adoption. The most vivid illustration comes from a comparison between two African countries: Ethiopia and Somalia. :shock: :shock: :roll: Ethiopia is one of the few remaining countries where mobile telecoms remains a government-run monopoly. By the end of 2008 the country had a “mobile teledensity” of 3.5% (ie, 3.5 mobile phones per 100 people), compared with 40% for Africa as a whole. By contrast, in war-torn Somalia, a similarly poor country with no functioning government and a completely unregulated telecoms market, more than a dozen operators have sprung up to meet demand, and mobile teledensity is 7.9%. Even warlords want their phones to work, notes Mr Ibrahim, so they leave networks alone: Celtel launched its networks in Sierra Leone and the Democratic Republic of Congo during civil wars, and both prospered.

እስቲ ምን ይባላል አሁን ደግሞ ????
