President Obama signed an executive order entitled, “HIV Care Continuum Initiative” that will create a national movement and federal involvement in the war on HIV/AIDS.
This EO will “coordinate Federal efforts in response to recent advances regarding how to prevent and treat HIV infection. The Initiative will support further integration of HIV prevention and care efforts; promote expansion of successful HIV testing and service delivery models; encourage innovative approaches to addressing barriers to accessing testing and treatment; and ensure that Federal resources are appropriately focused on implementing evidence-based interventions that improve outcomes along the HIV care continuum.”

Meanwhile, some immigrants and refugees are being allowed into the United States and other Western Countries with known Commuicable  and other mental health issues to citizens of hosting country;
WHATS UP WITH THAT?  Until, we are able to give our own countires a clean bill of health, don’t you think we should fix the problems in our own countries of Disease that is already here and Mental Health.  Instead of turning all of us into a MAD Petrie Dish experiment.

Arrival in the United States: Process, Health Status, & Screening of Refugees & Immigrants

Patricia F. Walker, William M. Stauffer, Elizabeth D. Barnett
There is great diversity among immigrant populations arriving in the United States each year, with a concomitant wide spectrum of health needs. Some immigrants arrive with infectious diseases of personal or public health significance; others with untreated chronic conditions such as vitamin deficiencies, diabetes, or hypertension; and many with both infectious and chronic disease issues. Two of these groups, refugees and internationally adopted children, have more health information available than other groups, so much of the published screening recommendations is based on studies of these groups.
State health departments are notified by CDC about refugee new arrivals. A secure electronic system, the Electronic Disease Notification System, alerts states of refugee arrivals that have class A conditions (with waiver) and class B conditions. Class A conditions are defined as those that preclude an immigrant or refugee from entering the United States. Class B conditions are defined as physical or mental abnormalities, diseases, or disabilities that are permanent or serious enough to amount to a substantial departure from normal well-being.
Newly arrived refugees are encouraged to receive stateside evaluation and treatment, conducted at state or local health departments, as well as private clinics and community health centers. Ideally, these examinations are done within 3 months of US arrival. Because there is no required nationwide process for postarrival health assessments, the timing and thoroughness of postarrival refugee health evaluations vary from state to state. For nonrefugee immigrants, no formal mechanism or funding source is available for medical screening; therefore, immigrants, with the exception of international adoptees, do not routinely receive any postarrival medical screening services. Many clinicians are unfamiliar with screening recommendations and diseases endemic to immigrants’ countries of origin and are unprepared to deal with language, social, and cultural barriers in caring for new arrivals. In addition, refugees and immigrants often have other demands related to their new environment that may compete with their perception of need for health evaluations and treatment. To address the special health challenges of refugees, the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), Department of Health and Human Services, provides guidance, resources, and oversight for medical assistance, initial medical screening, and physical and mental health technical assistance and consultation for refugees .  >>more from the CDC<<

Toolkit for Primary Care

Providers Treating Refugees

The Toolkit was created by the Pathways to Wellness Program in conjunction with medical staff from Harborview Medical Center. Content was generously contributed and reviewed by: Mary Stasio, R.N., Dr. Genji Terasaki, Dr. Suzinne Pak-Gorstein, Dr. David Roesel and Dr. Joseph P. Sherman. 
Primary care providers in South King County are serving an influx of refugee patients who are seeking care in the U.S. health care system for the first time. Many refugees experience marked disparities in infectious and various chronic diseases. Many new arrivals have serious health conditions needing immediate attention and follow-up.  In addition to contagious diseases, many refugees have experienced trauma, may be suffering from mental health conditions, hypertension, diabetes, skin, vision and dental problems, and/or malnourishment.  In particular, refugees resettled in the U.S., the U.K., and Australia have been shown to have an increased risk of suffering from malnutrition, anemia, lead poisoning, tuberculosis, malaria, HIV, hepatitis, and intestinal parasites (Ackerman, 1997), (Lifson et al. 2002),  (Miller et al. 2000), (Varkey et al. 2007).

Hardcore Gangs Hit Ohio Suburbs GANGS IN THE ’BURBS
Subversive element creeping beyond Columbus’ borders Last year, Westerville North High School suspended two students who flashed MS-13 hand signs and drew gang insignia during an English-asa-second-language class. MS-13, or Mara Salvatrucha, is a notoriously violent street gang with roots in Los Angeles. It was formed by immigrants from El Salvador.

Gang crime isn’t nearly as serious or common in the suburbs as in some Columbus neighborhoods, but suburban schools and police departments are increasingly on watch.
"It’s not so centralized in the inner city as it used to be," said Pat Brooks, a veteran Columbus police gang unit officer.

Suburban police call Brooks and his colleagues when they suspect gang activity in their jurisdictions.

Most of the crack dealers in Reynoldsburg are gang members who live in Columbus, said Tye Downard, a Reynoldsburg police narcotics detective.

Mocking boys for doing "feminine" things leaves them ill-equipped for life, and makes America a worse place for all

The real boy crisis: 5 ways America tells boys not to be “girly” Clothing. Hair.Products.Sports.Stories.

The ability to feel what others feel has many well-documented benefits, including, for empathetic people, greater psychological and physical health. The real and socially significant positive impact of empathy, however, is the ways in which it affects behavior toward others. People who are empathetic are less aggressive and prone to denigrate others; they are predisposed to act with care and compassion; they have increased egalitarian beliefs and act with less prejudice and stereotype-based hatred. Empathetic behaviors, however, are associated with being female. And weak. The stereotypes that plague our lives teach that the characteristics of empathetic understanding are feminine: listening, sensitivity, quiet consideration and gentleness.  Empathy is feminized and boys learn quickly that what is feminized is, in a man, the source of disgust. While parents, teachers, coaches, grandp…
