Cuban Doctors - Slave Labor In Brazil? (#705) Duration: 26:00 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

Coral Reefs Protect Biodiversity in Fiji - The Great Sea Reef protects the coast of Vanua Levu island on Fiji from storm floods and erosion. The reef is also home to an amazingly diverse number of species, some of which are endangered. To safeguard its future, everyone needs to be brought on board: local fishermen, tourists and politicians. In the past, fishermen in the north of the Fiji Islands used to divide up their fishing grounds in the Great Sea Reef. That's no longer the case. The economic pressure is too great. Continual overfishing is endangering biodiversity. The 200 km long reef offers a home to 12 particularly endangered species of fish and coral, including the Green Turtle and the Spinner Dolphin. New ideas are urgently needed to protect its sensitive eco-system. Fiji has committed itself to protecting a third of its ocean territory by the year 2020 and that includes the Great Sea Reef. Young Global Leaders: The Rise of Suhas Gopinath - Suhas Gopinath was just 14 years old when he set up Globals Incorporated from an Internet shop in Bangalore. His multi-million dollar software company has now turned into an international success. Suhas Gopinath its optimistic about the future of India. He says the new government, which took over power almost a year ago, is showing a lot of initiative and is business-friendly. And India needs a lot of new entrepreneurs to fight the country's high levels of unemployment and poverty. Gopinath wants to do his bit. He's advising the government on business start-ups. Cuban Doctors in Brazil - The Brazilian town of Guia Lopes da Laguna was without a doctor for over a month. Until Denis C. arrived. Denis comes from Cuban and is an experienced and well-qualified general practitioner. Medical provision in Brazil's major cities is good, but the situation is quite different in rural areas where thousands of doctors' posts cannot be filled. President Dilma Rousseff has reacted to vociferous protests about the ailing health service ahead of the Soccer World Cup with a scheme called "Mais Medicos" or "More Doctors". It has successfully attracted 13,000 Cuban doctors to the country. Nationwide polls show that most Brazilians are happy with the program. But it has its critics who call the Cuban doctors "slaves" - as they're only allowed to keep one-third of their salaries. Albinos Face Deadly Superstition in Kenya - Albinos face discrimination in many parts of Africa. In some areas of East Africa they're even murdered for their body parts, which are said to have particular magic powers. With their white skin that needs to be constantly protected from the sun and their extremely light-sensitive eyes - life for albinos in Africa is particularly difficult. In Kenyan society, they are also frequently stigmatized and isolated. What's worse, in Tanzania they're even murdered for their body parts, which are said to possess magic powers. The Canadian organization "Under the Same Sun" has recorded 129 murders in a recent study. Most of them were in the region close to the great lakes.
