inhumanity and humanity

October 22, 2009

Same old story repeated across many nations, many periods and many times that you think we would have become immuned to it. Would you be?

This is not a piece meal story. Every country with a shaky democracy is very much threatened by this, including Malaysia. Malaysia’s (and pre-Malayan) history of periodic violence would have similar stories and it would be interesting to dig further into that. I am sure most of us have ancestors and relatives who were victims of sexual violence, whether in wartime or peacetime.

On a more positive note, the Lancet student blog is looking for contributors interested in global health issues who are willing to contribute to the blog below
