I wonder how the US far right will like the contraceptives delivery? They have already managed to get a significant portion of the money which is supposed to go for AIDS prevention (in Africa, if I remember) to be dedicated to abstinence programs, which has not been notably effective. --------- Begin forwarded message ---------- From: "UN News Service" <UNNews@un.org> To: <email@example.com> Subject: UN DELIVERS NEW SHIPMENT OF EMERGENCY REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH SUPPLIES TO IRAQ Date: Wed, 23 Jul 2003 16:00:09 -0400 Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> UN DELIVERS NEW SHIPMENT OF EMERGENCY REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH SUPPLIES TO IRAQ New York, Jul 23 2003 4:00PM In an effort to restore reproductive health services in Iraq, the United Nations Population Fund (<"http://www.unfpa.org/news/news.cfm?ID=360">UNFPA) has delivered a new shipment of emergency reproductive health supplies to key maternity hospitals and primary healthcare centres in Baghdad. The shipment included much needed emergency obstetric care supplies, clean delivery equipment, contraceptives, syringes, essential drugs and other medical supplies sent by the UNFPA office in Iran, the agency said in a press release. The supplies were distributed among healthcare centres by UNFPA and the Iraqi Ministry of Health. Priority was given to healthcare facilities serving densely populated areas, those that were directly affected by the war, and others located in areas in need of immediate support. Additional UNFPA shipments of reproductive health supplies are expected to arrive in Baghdad soon. 2003-07-23 00:00:00.000 ________________ For more details go to UN News Centre at http://www.un.org/news To change your profile or unsubscribe go to: http://www.un.org/news/dh/latest/subscribe.shtml --------- End forwarded message ---------- ________________________________________________________________ The best thing to hit the internet in years - Juno SpeedBand!
