As cholera sweeps through Malawi and other African nations, the need has never been more pressing for increased efforts to ensure equitable access to lifesaving medicines. Malawi has conducted two oral cholera vaccination campaigns in 21 affected districts; however, unvaccinated districts are still at risk. Worldwide vaccine supplies are scarce as cholera has been surging globally, prompting the World Health Organization to suspend the standard two-dose strategy last October. The Vaccinate Our World initiative was launched by AHF during the COVID-19 pandemic to address the glaring discrepancies in vaccine access between rich and lower-income countries. AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) is a global non-profit organization providing cutting-edge medicine and advocacy to over 1.7 million people in 45 countries worldwide in the US, Africa, Latin America/Caribbean, the Asia/Pacific Region, and Europe.

Virginia lawmakers couldn’t agree on legislation to launch commercial adult-use cannabis sales this year, but instead approved a bill last week that would more tightly regulate hemp-derived THC products in the state. Both chambers of the Virginia General Assembly voted Feb. 24 to send House Bill 2294 to Gov. The 36-page bill establishes license requirements and stricter labeling rules for hemp-derived THC products, which are now largely unregulated and sold at gas stations and convenience stores throughout the state. Last year, the Virginia General Assembly created a 16-member task force to study the issue of delta-8 and other hemp-derived THC products being sold in the state. The new labeling rules would also bar any hemp-derived THC products from being marketed as curing, treating or preventing any disease, the news outlet reported.23 days ago Cannabis Business Times -
