The International Health Regulations require, among other things, that the countries of the PAHO / WHO report within 24 hours of any outbreak or other public health event that could have an international impact. To facilitate this, every country has a national focal point or designated officials on a 24-hour, seven days a week basis to communicate with PAHO / WHO and respond to requests.
PAHO with its member countries with its member countries to ensure that they are able to comply with the new rules. PAHO Assistant Director Dr. Carissa Etienne noted that all member countries have now designated National Focal Points, and some are currently conducting assessments of their surveillance and response capabilities and the preparation of action plans for filling any gaps which is required by the regulations.

The project the first large study to examine the relationship between the dimensions of the semicircular canals is to be documented on locomotion. These structures are connected to a fluid within the channels, when the animal moves filled moves. The fluid motion is caused by special cells that send signals to the brain, triggering the neck and eye muscles reflexively keep the visual image recorded stable.. Reconstruction of the biology of extinct speciesAn international research team has moved the link between the nature of an animal and which dimensions of an important part of its organ of balance, the documented three semicircular canals of the inner ear on each side of the skull.
Now we have to reconstruct extinct species extinct species moved that is completely independent of analysis of the limb structure. For the first time we are able previous previous conclusions on a new source of information. .. The basic hypothesis of the project was that the organ of equilibrium – the stabilization of an animal look and help coordinate their movements, as she travels through the environment – should irrevocably to the type of locomotion produced by its limbs are linked. When an animal develops a new way of moving about the world, its organ of balance must evolve accordingly, explains Walker. Continue reading
