& it’s barely on the news.

May Allah protect the Rohingya Muslims. “Never Again,” my ass. The world remains silent while our brothers and sisters get massacred. Because you know, they’re not white or Christian/Jewish.

The Need For Urgent HIV and TB Treatment in Myanmar.

Tens of thousands of people living with HIV and tuberculosis (TB) in Myanmar are unable to access lifesaving antiretroviral therapy (ART), a dire situation exacerbated by the recent cancellation of a new round of funding from the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB, and Malaria.

Lives in the Balance,” a new report from Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), outlines the situation for people affected by HIV and tuberculosis (TB), with a special focus on multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB), in Myanmar today. It calls for urgent funding and assistance to be made available by the international donor community to help Myanmar close the devastating gap between people’s need and people’s access to treatment for HIV and TB.

So Am I The Only One Whose Wondering Why The Recent Overthrow of Myanmar's Military Junta Got Nearly Zero Play In The Mainstream Media? ›


I know there’s a lot going on in the world right now, but I feel like the media really glossed over this one.  I don’t recall there being too many articles written about this.

note: link above is to an article about the new gov’t.’s attempts to crackdown on opium.  here’s a NYT blog post that mentions the elections.  Here’s a CFR article that discusses them as well.  Maybe I just missed the boat on this one, but I just don’t recall seeing very much coverage of this in the past few months.
