Schistosomiasis is the second most prevalent tropical disease in Africa after malaria. It is difficult to know how many individuals die of schistosomiasis each year because death certificates seldom identify schistosomiasis as the primary cause of death. The prognosis is very good with early treatment, but people can die if it is left untreated. Unfortunately, schistosomiasis is often left undetected for several years.

Environmental issues in the Niger Delta - Wikipedia
See below for the abstract. The incidence of female combatants in Africa is a recurrent decimal. This problem has really pre-occupied not only scholars of strategic persuasion, but also in the violence and peace studies and those in the humanitarian scholarship have also not been left out. This is because of the numerous effects and the problems it posits for both local and international peace especially the psychological and traumatizing multiplier effects it has on the domestic social space. Females make up almost several thousands of those recruited for wars. The internecine wars in Africa and the numerous conflicts of different dimensions and colourations on the continent have given rise to the crisis of female combatants. The child- soldier syndrome Amadu, S and Wale,I, in Africa was not exclusive of the great percentage of the females who served in the different categories of the wars.
Niger Delta Conflicts: A Case Study
The Niger Delta region of Nigeria has in recent years been a hotbed of conflict. The region has been embroiled in turmoil over the struggle for equitable resource allocation. Federal systems by their nature are complex administrative designs because they involve multiple levels of government. The Nigerian federal system is thus beset by a lot of complex challenges. One of such challenges is the seemingly implacable and intractable Niger Delta crisis arising from lopsidedness in revenue allocation and sharing in the country.
The evidence on the impact of trade liberalization on gender inequalities is not fully established yet, nor is the impact of gender inequalities on trade policy outcomes. Sociocultural norms, legal barriers, and socioeconomic disadvantages are the main gender-based discrimination that affect the distribution of trade benefits between men and women. This study applied to Niger assesses the distributional effects of trade reforms between men and women and sheds light on the impact of gender-based barriers on the outcome of trade reforms. Thus, the study essentially assesses the impact of the CET reform on gender inequalities in Niger.
