Objective: the aim of the study was to estimate the prevalence rate of VDs among primary school teachers and to identify its risk factors and impact. Method: A cross-sectional study was conducted including 225 primary school teachers. Study tools included an interview questionnaire, Voice Handicap Index and voice ergonomic assessment. Noise levels were recorded. Results: Career prevalence of self-reported vocal problems was 56.4%, year prevalence was 55.1%, and point prevalence was 31.1%. Risk factors of VDs included female gender, high degree of voice loudness, lack of voice rest, use of anticoagulants, laryngeal disease, URTI, asthma and stress. More teachers with VDs had absenteeism, adjusted teaching method and changed overall job opinions. VDs also had negative impact on teachers' physical, functional and emotional state.|
| Cache ||Background: Since the Arab spring, a large number of Syrian refugees arrived to Egypt. The majority of these refugees faced numerous traumatic events both in their country of origin and while moving from it. This raised the prevalence rates of depression and anxiety disorders among refugees than other populations. There are very few studies regarding the mental health of these vulnerable populations in Egypt. Objective: This study aims to screen for depressive and anxiety symptoms among a sample of working Syrian refugees in Cairo, Egypt and to estimate their socio-demographic and employment correlates. Method: A cross sectional study with convenient method of sampling was carried out. The sample was recruited from a primary healthcare center. Socio-demographic data were identified using designed questionnaires. Depressive and anxiety symptoms were evaluated using Beck Depression inventory (BDI) and Taylor anxiety scales respectively. Results: Ninety-four Syrian worker refugees participated in the current study. Depressive symptoms were prevalent among 63 % of the studied sample and anxiety symptoms were found among 89 % of them. The refugee’s duration of being away from his/her country represents a statistical significant factor that was associated with higher rates of depressive symptoms. None of other socio-demographic & employment factors were found to be associated with the rates of depressive or anxiety symptoms among the study sample. Conclusion: Syrian refugees are at high risk of developing depressive and anxiety symptoms. Increased attention from primary and mental health care services to adequately support Syrian refugees’ mental health needs are urgently needed.|

CAIRO (AP) — U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo “expressed outrage” to Egypt’s president on Sunday at the death of an American citizen who insisted he had been wrongfully held in an Egyptian prison, according to a State Department spokeswoman.
Pompeo’s sharp remarks signal the U.S. government was putting the death of Mustafa Kassem, 54, following his protracted hunger strike last week, high on the diplomatic agenda.
Pompeo raised his concerns to President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi about Kassem’s “pointless and tragic death” on the sidelines of an international peace summit in Berlin that aims to end Libya’s civil war.
The death of the auto parts dealer from Long Island, New York prompted an outcry from human rights groups, as well as accusations of medical negligence in Egypt's prisons.
The case also touched a nerve in Washington, which has cultivated close security and diplomatic ties with Egypt despite growing unease over its human rights violations under general-turned-president el-Sissi.
Activists and foreign affairs experts have called for the Trump administration to penalize its staunch Middle Eastern ally by slashing millions of dollars in security assistance. The U.S. grants $1.2 billion in annual military aid to Egypt.
Kassem was detained by Egypt in 2013 in what his lawyers described as a vast dragnet during the violent dispersal of an Islamist sit-in that killed hundreds of people. He was later sentenced to 15 years under a contentious anti-protest law that the government often uses to silence dissent. He maintained his innocence throughout his detention and started a hunger strike last year in protest.
El-Sissi came to power in the summer of 2013 and has overseen a sweeping crackdown on dissent, jailing thousands.
