Aquí lanzamos la segunda crónica en nuestra serie sobre la crisis migratoria en México. Esta semana, les presentamos el testimonio de Alex, un migrante hondureño que creció en Canadá. Hace ocho años fue deportado, y las consecuencias de su exilio han sido mucho mas graves que se esperara.

Lingering Illness

As infection rates in West Africa fall, coverage of the Ebola epidemic in Western news sources has declined rapidly. But affected countries continue to suffer from damage caused by the outbreak and the international community still has not resolved infrastructure issues that prevented more effective intervention. War News Radio’s Sabrina Merold talks to Dr. Trish Henwood, Director of Global Health Initiatives at the University of Pennsylvania, about her time in Liberia during the outbreak and the challenges — personal and organizational — and that come with epidemic response work.
