Dr Stuart John Saunders Lecture

Wed, 2018-05-09
18:00 to 19:00
The maiden lecture will be presented by Professor Bernard  Gersh, a leading researcher in cardiovascular disease (CVD) with a keen interest in the epidemiology of CVD in the developing world. He is a professor of medicine at the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine and Science in the United States and a consultant in CVD and internal medicine. He has also made significant contributions to the understanding of acute and chronic coronary artery disease, clinical electrophysiology, sudden cardiac death and cardiac stem cell therapy. He has an honorary professorship in the Department of Medicine at UCT. In his lecture, Professor Gersh will highlight the global epidemic of CVDs, illustrating the magnitude of its increased prevalence in low- and middle-income countries and also analyse the potential consequences for the developed world. Furthermore, he will ask why CVD remains relatively low on the global health agenda even though it remains one of the leading causes of death – surpassing deaths due to malaria, HIV or AIDS, and tuberculosis. Please confirm your attendance online by Friday, 4 May 2018.

THREATS to judicial independence have made troubling headlines in Africa over the last few months, with judges in a number of countries experiencing problems. We in Jifa are concerned about the situation and pledge to keep everyone in our network aware of developments as they come to our notice.
Nowhere have threats to judicial independence sparked more international publicity than in Kenya but reports and judgments from other states show that the judiciary is under pressure elsewhere too.
