first_imgStuff 16 April 2016Family First Comment: This is very interesting. The owner of Wicked Campers said in 2014 ( “WICKED CAMPERS ALSO INVITES ANYBODY WHO FEELS STRONGLY OFFENDED BY A SLOGAN TO EITHER PAINT OR TAPE OVER IT.”Right! Got that.Thousands of Kiwis are calling for a ban on Wicked Campers offensive slogans, but the man behind the vans is nowhere to be found.The company behind the offensive and borderline misogynistic slogans driving around some of the most beautiful parts of New Zealand is nothing if not defiant.John William Webb refuses to explain – let alone, apologise for – the vans that have motorists, campsites, guide books, councils and the Government up in arms.How is he getting away with it?Wicked Campers founder and owner John Webb has been silently defiant in the face of the latest uproar over his vans’ slogans.Webb’s first Wicked-related companies were set up in the early noughties and the vans hit the roads in 2005.READ MORE: read more

Policy on Men’s health to be developed to minimize prostate mortality in Dominica

first_img Sharing is caring! LocalNews Policy on Men’s health to be developed to minimize prostate mortality in Dominica by: – October 18, 2011 14 Views   no discussions Share Tweetcenter_img Share Share Hon. Julius TimothyDominica’s Minister of Health, Honorable Julius Timothy is advocating the need for a policy on men’s health and health promotion to be developed, in order to reduce cases of male cancer on the island.The Ministry of Health has partnered with the Dominica Cancer Society to launch a National Strategic Plan for Health which identifies the development of a national plan for men’s health as an important initiative.The Ministry is hoping that this policy will also result in creating a different perception to citizens, more so men, as it relates to testing and early detection.“I am pleased to say the work has commenced on the development of such a policy guideline in association with the relevant stakeholders. Interest in men’s health to date has tended to be a on ‘male specific’ conditions and increased emphasis on men’s health in a wider context is now needed. Men and women are at similar risks of developing cancers but men are more likely to die from it because it is believed that they do not make much use of preventative and primary healthcare services and therefore only present themselves to the medical professional late in the course of the illness. In this regard, the Ministry of Health is looking closely at the role of gender on Dominican men’s concept of health, their knowledge, beliefs and attitudes to health and illness, health and risk behaviours, and the barrieres that Dominican men perceive in accessing the health services. The findings of such studies will inform the development of the new men’s health policy in a very region-specific way”.Mr Timothy says there has been considerable progress in the fight against cancer nationally which include investments in the develoment of cancer services.“The benefit of this investment can be seen in a number of areas, including the availability of a specialized oncology clinic together with supporting staff and services, in key areas such as medical oncology, histopathology, radiology and haematology.”The Ministry believes that the control of cancer can only be effective if it is planned in a systematic and integrated manner. The National Health Strategic Plan has identified the need for the preparation of a new National Cancer Strategy which will soon be developed by the Ministry of Health in conjuction with key stakeholders.“The Strategy will hopefully set out the key priorities for the development of cancer services and will make recommendations in relation to the organization of cancer services nationally. This is largely addressed in our more recently developed CNCD policy which also addresses the issue of preventable cancers”, said Timothy.Cancer has been identified as one of the leading causes of premature death in Dominica.Dominica has now become a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency which guarantees access to specialty services provided by the Agency in relation to cancer treatment and prevention.Domincia Vibes Newslast_img read more
