Fresh Air, Charlene Smith and Phillip van Nieke...

South African journalist and anti-rape activist Charlene Smith and South African journalist Phillip van Niekerk on this edition of Fresh Air. Statistics say every 26 seconds a woman is raped in South Africa, the country with the fastest growing HIV rate. Last year, Smith was raped, and feared the man who raped her could have given her HIV/AIDS, and she had a hard time obtaining the drugs that could lessen the potential of her getting HIV. Smith then wrote about her experience and helped spread awareness about rape and HIV in South Africa. She continues to speak about her experience and is pushing for legal and medical reforms in South Africa. Van Niekerk talks about HIV and AIDS in South Africa. Recently, the president of South Africa, Thabo Mbeki has become very involved in the AIDS policy in his country. Mbeki is focusing on a medical theory that states that the human immunodeficiency virus, or HIV, does not cause AIDS. Many leading scientists have criticized Mbeki for wasting his time on what they see as a discredited theory about AIDS. The international AIDS conference is scheduled for this summer in South Africa. (Broadcast Date: May 11, 2000) 1. Language: English. Narrator: Terry Gross. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/rt/whyy/000705/rt_whyy_000705_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Winner of The Green Carnation Prize for LGBTQ literature Winner of the Lambda Literary Award for LGBT nonfiction Shortlisted for the Wellcome Book Prize 2017 How to Survive a Plague by David France is the riveting, powerful and profoundly moving story of the AIDS epidemic and the grass-roots movement of activists, many of them facing their own life-or-death struggles, who grabbed the reins of scientific research to help develop the drugs that turned HIV from a mostly fatal infection to a manageable disease. Around the globe, the 15.8 million people taking anti-AIDS drugs today are alive thanks to their efforts. Not since the publication of Randy Shilts's now classic And the Band Played On in 1987 has a book sought to measure the AIDS plague in such brutally human, intimate, and soaring terms. Weaving together the stories of dozens of individuals, this is an insider's account of a pivotal moment in our history and one that changed the way that medical science is practised worldwide. 1.

Spillover , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 1247min

A masterpiece of science reporting that tracks the animal origins of emerging human diseases. The emergence of strange new diseases is a frightening problem that seems to be getting worse. In this age of speedy travel, it threatens a worldwide pandemic. We hear news reports of Ebola, SARS, AIDS, and something called Hendra killing horses and people in Australia - but those reports miss the big truth that such phenomena are part of a single pattern. The bugs that transmit these diseases share one thing: they originate in wild animals and pass to humans by a process called spillover. David Quammen tracks this subject around the world. He recounts adventures in the field - netting bats in China, trapping monkeys in Bangladesh, stalking gorillas in the Congo - with the world’s leading disease scientists. In Spillover, Quammen takes the listener along on this astonishing quest to learn how, where from, and why these diseases emerge, and he asks the terrifying question: What might the next big one be? 1.

Flu: The Story of the Great Influenza Pandemic ...
9,95 € *

Feeling feverish, tired, or achy? Listening to Gina Kolata's engrossing account of the 1918 Influenza epidemic is sure to give you the chills. When we think of plagues, we think of AIDS, Ebola, anthrax spores, and, of course, the Black Death. Influenza never makes the list. But in 1918 the Great Flu Epidemic felled the young and healthy virtually overnight. An estimated forty million people died as the pandemic raged. More American soldiers were killed by the 1918 flu than were killed in battle during World War I. And no area of the globe was safe. Eskimos living in remote outposts in the frozen tundra succumbed to the flu in such numbers that entire villages were wiped out. If such a plague returned today, taking a comparable percentage of the U.S. population with it, 1.5 million Americans would die, which is more than the number killed in a single year by heart disease, cancers, strokes, chronic pulmonary disease, AIDS, and Alzheimer's combined. Scientists have recently discovered shards of the flu virus in human remains frozen in the Arctic tundra and in scraps of tissue preserved in a government warehouse. In Flu, Gina Kolata, an acclaimed reporter for The New York Times, unravels the mystery of the lethal virus with the high drama of a great adventure story. From Alaska to Norway, from the streets of Hong Kong to the corridors of the White House, Kolata tracks the race to recover the live pathogen and probes the fear that has impelled government policy. A gripping work of science writing, Flu addresses the prospects for a great epidemic recurring, and considers what can be done to prevent it. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gina Kolata.
