MAPUTO Dante Pettis Jersey , Sept. 12 (Xinhua) -- Unitaid, an international organization hosted by the World Health Organization (WHO), launched here on Monday a project to bring malaria prevention care to 400,000 pregnant women and their babies in four African countries.


According to Unitaid, with a budget of 50 million U.S. dollars, the "Transforming Intermittent Preventive Treatment for Optimal Pregnancy" (TIPTOP) project will be implemented in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Madagascar, Mozambique and Nigeria, countries from the Sub-Saharan region hit by malaria.


In Mozambique in particular, latest statistics indicated that more than 28 percent pregnant women are infected with malaria. The project will benefit 100,000 women from the province of Sofala in the central region of the country and will later be expanded to Nampula, the country's most populated province.


"The project will be an opportunity to increase the number of pregnant women seeking prenatal consultation, for a better management of medicines and an integration of the country's malaria control program between the health department and different partners and to increase the coverage of Intermittent Preventive Treatment for pregnant women (IPTp)," Nazira Abdula, minister of health for Mozambique, said during a launch ceremony of the five-year project in Maputo.


The minister said Mozambique is honored to launch a project of such a dimension, which is a clear evidence of the importance of preventing malaria in pregnancy worldwide, at a time when there is a global call for accelerating actions.


The TIPTOP project will equip local community members, traditional birth attendants, community health workers and volunteers with doses of sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine (SP) to be administered at community level.


Unitaid said this project accelerates access to innovative health products for those who need them most.


"We are excited to see Mozambique launch the TIPTOP project that will provide pregnant women with a life-saving medicine to protect them and their infants from malaria," said Lelio Marmora, executive director of Unitaid.


Malaria is one of the top killer diseases in Mozambique, of which pregnant women and children are among the main victims.

Promotional material for My War Photo: IC

Recently released Korean War film My War became a hot topic of discussion before it officially hit cinemas in China, yet for reasons that the studio and the film's director didn't want to see.


The film, an adaptation of late writer Ba Jin's Tuanyuan (Reunion), ended up becoming the center of controversy after a promotional clip was released. In the clip, several elderly Chinese tourists, played by veteran Chinese actors and actresses, are seen taking a tour in South Korea, all the while proudly talking about how they triumphantly entered Seoul during the Korean War.


"Going to another country and telling the people there how I beat up your grandpa, isn't that the wrong way to be patriotic?"


Some netizens expressed anger over the propaganda-like style used in clip, claiming that it glorified war and was bad for international relations with South Korea. Many netizens also directed their anger at director Pang Chun for promoting improper values and for putting the veteran actors in a bad situation.


After the controversy, Pang posted on Sina Weibo, "The promotional clip was not directed by me, nor was this my idea. Its content also has nothing to do with the film either."


He added that his intentions for the film are to show the cruelty of war and focus on human emotions.


No matter where the blame should lie when it comes to this controversy, it's clear that propaganda-style patriotism no longer fits the tastes of today's audiences, and instead may cause a backlash.


Political hurdles


According to Pang and the film's production company China Film Group Corporation, they had no intention of making My War a patriotic film.


"There is no hero - only the fear, pain and growth that ordinary people experience during war," Pang said in an interview with Entertainment Capital.


While capturing the reality of war was Pang's goal, he had a number of hurdles to deal with that made this task extremely difficult.


Pang told Entertainment Capital that the China Film Group Corporation wanted him to make a film about the Korean War without actually mentioning who the main characters were fighting against, since this was related to the political relationship between China, the US and South Korea.


However, after the Philippines unilaterally filed its arbitration case concerning the South China Sea, Pang was told that the US military could appear in the film. Apparently the studio thought that it would make things more dramatic if the film had a villain.


It's worth noting that the controversial promotional clip also came out a little while after South Korea decided to deploy a US advanced missile defense system in the country's southeastern region over the summer.


It's clear that the film was heavily impacted by changing political scenarios.


The sensitive nature of the Korean War is one of the main reasons studios in China have avoided making films about it in recent years.
