We are a podcast about global health and human rights. And right now, we are asking the tough questions about what a world with #COVID19 looks like. Rapid, mass global #vaccination programs are needed - something never achieved in #globalpublichealth before. But who will be left behind? #Pandemics have upended #globalsecurity priorities and turned our lives upside down. What does this mean for #humanrights? What are the implications for epidemics, like, #HIV, #TB and #Malaria, that we have not yet eliminated? A Shot in the Arm Podcast is produced by NewsDoc Media and Hunuvat Global, and we explore these and other pressing questions, with scientists and advocates from around the world making the tough decisions right now.

    Diagnostics: The Gateway for Managing Pandemics

    Ben catches up with infectious disease physicians Tamar Tchelidze and Ben La Brot, on how networks of lab-based and point of care tests can drive better diagnosing and management of infectious disease - and can PrEP and HIV treatment be the poster-child to prove this to skeptical policy makers?

    PBS NOVA: Ending HIV in America

    PBS NOVA “Ending HIV in America” has just premiered on PBS on the 5th of October, 2022, telling the story of an incredible scientific achievement and the public health work that still needs to be done to end HIV in America. In this episode, we meet the documentary’s director, Shayon Maitra, and two participants, friend of the podcast Professor Monica Gandhi from San Francisco, and the incredible Birmingham Alabama community health worker Tommy Williams, to explore how hard-hit affected communities can benefit from new therapeutic advances - and to ask the question, can we end HIV in America?

    PBS NOVA’s available for streaming at pbs.org/nova and via the PBS Video App.

    Eddie Mkhatjwa, Project Manager, CANGO, Eswatini

    Doomsday Watch Meets Global Health (with Guest Arthur Snell)

    Doomsday Watch Meets Global Health (with Guest Arthur Snell)

    Ben meets Arthur Snell, former UK diplomat, host of the Doomsday Watch Podcast, and author of the Amazon UK bestseller “How Britain Broke The World” to explore how the greatest challenges facing the international community are radically changing global health priorities. Arthur reflects on the wide-ranging impacts of Russia’s ill-fated invasion of Ukraine, NATO’s retreat from Afghanistan, and what to expect from the new British Prime Minister Liz Truss - particularly whether the UK will follow the lead of the US and European partners and support the 7th replenishment of the Global Fund.
