Former Algerian President Ahmed Ben Bella, Algeria's first president after the country became independent from France in 1962, died on Wednesday, April 11, 2012, at the age of 96, according to Algeria's state-run Algerie Presse Service.

Ben Bella passed away at the home of his family in Algiers, the capital city, after he was taken to a military hospital twice more than a month ago.

Ben Bella was a man of pan-Arabist ideology. He was president of Algeria until 1965, when he was overthrown in a military coup by the head of his army Houari Boumediene.

The late president remained under house arrest until 1980, and after his release he went to France and then moved to Switzerland in self-exile. He returned home in 1990.

Cairo, Egypt | March 17, 2012

Pope Shenouda III, Head of Egypt’s Coptic Orthodox Church, died on Saturday, March 17, at the age of 88, after a long battle against illness.

The Coptic patriarch Pope Shenouda’s health has been deteriorating recently as he suffered from back and kidney problems for years and repeatedly travelled to the US for medical treatment. He was unable last Wednesday to give his weekly sermon at church.

The sound of weeping and prayers overwhelmed the Cathedral atmosphere where thousands of Copts gathered to lament the soul of the man whom they regard as a symbol for wisdom and sincerity.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Egyptian Copt at the Cathedral:
"There are no words that can make up for the value of this man. There are no words that can be said for losing such a big symbol. He was the cover sheltering all the Egyptian people, not only the Christians."

Shenouda was widely accepted by Christians and Muslims for his regular efforts to contain sectarian tensions following any incidents. He was also known for his support for the Palestinian rights in the long Middle East conflict and he was often described as an Arab nationalist by many observers.

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) - Pope Shenouda III [archive]:
“We want to solve the problems. We do not want to make things more dangerous and difficult. We will celebrate the birth of the Christ (on January 7) regardless of any circumstances or issues.”

In 2001, he famously stated he would never visit Jerusalem unless he entered the country with a Palestinian visa along with Mohamed Sayed Tantawi, the late Grand Imam of Egypt’s foremost religious authority, Al-Azhar.

He was born on August 3, 1923, in Asiut, Upper Egypt, and he has been the Pope of Alexandria since November 1971, when assassinated President Anwar Sadat was in power.

Death and Poverty in Guatemala
San Jorge La Laguna , Solola, Guatemala
By Mais Istanbuli
03 Jan 2012

Unlike many other Latin American countries, Guatemala is still at an early stage of its demographic and epidemiological transitions with a young, rapidly growing, and essentially rural population.

In Latin America, Guatemala is one of the worst performers in terms of health outcomes. Compared to the rest of the region, the country has a high infant mortality rate and low life expectancy at birth.

Major causes of death include treatable and contagious diseases such as diarrhea, pneumonia, cholera, malnutrition, and tuberculosis. For a large section of the Guatemalans indeed, access to healthcare services is difficult. This is mostly due to both supply- and demand-side constraints, the latter being particularly important in rural areas.

However, some reforms have been made in the health sector. On the institutional side, health is now one of the pilot ministries that work on decentralizing financial management under the Integrated System for Health Care (SIAS program). Public spending has also shifted toward preventive care, a key measure to treat the health problems of the poor.

Despite these efforts though, no significant improvement has been observed in spending and health outcomes. On top of that, the targeting of public expenditure on health remains inappropriate (disproportionate?) and mostly benefits the highest quintiles. Based on the type of facility, public spending on hospitals is by far the more regressive.
