Drug-resistant tuberculosis at crisis levels, warns WHO

LONDON (Reuters) - Multi drug-resistant tuberculosis remains at crisis levels, with about 480,000 new cases this year, and various forms of the lung disease killed about 1.5 million people in 2013, the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Wednesday. In recent years, the emergence of multi drug-resistant TB -- a manmade problem caused by regular TB patients being given the wrong medicines, the wrong doses, or failing to complete their treatment -- has posed an increasing global health threat. About 9 million people contracted tuberculosis during the year and about 3.5 percent of those had a strain that was to some extent drug-resistant -- cases that are much harder to treat and have significantly poorer cure rates, it said. #Arabic #Argentina #France #India #Italy #Mexico #Middle East #opinion #Technology

Pope Francis plays long game to reform Catholic Church

VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - After winning praise around the world for his fresh and open style, the honeymoon period seems to be over for Pope Francis. A tumultuous two-week Vatican synod exposed polarisation in the Catholic Church over his push to reform its traditional approach to sexual morality by becoming more welcoming to gays and easing restrictions on divorced and remarried Catholics. A Jesuit unafraid of frank debate, Francis has set off a clash of opinions not seen since the reformist Second Vatican Council of 1962-1965. #Africa #Arabic #Argentina #Brazil #Church #France #Japan #opinion #Technology #United States
