Some fine gallows humour from Naila Kabeer. ‘Clearly the Taliban have not caught up with the feminist critique of ‘manels’.’ Anyone care to add the David Hasselhof meme?

How did Covid-19 affect women’s autonomy & access to healthcare in Pakistan?

This is Nuts. ‘Europe receiving 10M COVID-19 vaccine doses produced in South Africa.’

You may have missed this bit of good news (in terms of process) amid all the doom scrolling. Zambia election: Opposition candidate Hakainde Hichilema declared winner by electoral commission. Not even close – 2.8m votes v 1.8m. An orderly transition, and a possible $5m windfall from Mo Ibrahim may ease the pain for the departing President Lungu (look forward to the attribution discussion on that one)

    Hi Duncan, did you do due diligence before your plug for ‘The CHC Initiative’ (on the website) and ‘Prepare’ (on the video you generously describe as ‘explanatory’)? The website has no information on background, aims, related organizations and it ends: “© 2018 Your Company.” The initiative may be the start of something valuable, but needs to prepare a bit more information before it appeals for our support and participation.

      Fair question John, but Paul Knox Clarke, who has featured before on the blog, and who I know as a reliable analyst on all things humanitarian, is in charge, so unless I’ve made a horrible mistake, I think it’s all good.
