Research gate self archiving system offer a chance to a diffusion of the journal.

ResearchGate began when two researchers discovered first-hand that working with a friend or colleague based on the other side of the world was no easy task. The rapid evolution of technology has opened the door to change; by providing you with the right tools, we strive to facilitate scientific collaboration on a global scale. It can be tricky to get hold of the right publications; so whether you want to find something specific, discover something new or share your own work with the community, we have the tools to make it happen

Last evening I visited the FELCOS office in Foligno. Felcos consortium is an association based in Umbria of local  municipal authorities and privates promoting social development and growth throughout international cooperation (albania, Palestine, Morocco, Sri Lanka, Cuba). Mr Massimo Porzi kindly gave me the chance to show him Developing Medicine acitivities. We agreed on selecting scientific contributions from felcos recent activites to be submitted to our editorial office. FELCOS office may support fund raising applications for migration related topics in Umbria. Those interested can contact me or directly massimo at Felcos.

In 2050 nearly 1.5 billions people aged over 60 will live in less developed countries. According to UN data and WHO facts sheet 2010 Niger will have the fewest people over 60 (5%).

In the picture the dark areas represent regions in 2050 where the percentage of 60+residents rises over 25% of total population.

Longer life fewer babies will push on a demographic shift, by 2050 one in 5 people will be aged 60+ they will outnumber people under 14y

According to the chiar’s final statements of the meeting: there is a strong need to forster Italian  international cooperation. The Italian community appreciate such activities and is interested to improve them.  Exist potentially relevant sinergic chances between public and private initiatives (profit and no-profit).

At present day there are no precise figures on how many people are involved in Int Coop activities, the recent restriction to the foreign Ministery budget had direct effects on the planning of future activities and  indirect on national health care systems workers (e.g.: doctors and nurses) applying to Int Coop projects. Their previdential duties will not be easily waived during missions abroad.

last evening in Cesenatico (Forli Cesena) under the patronage of the Red Cross local office and the health care authorities of Cameroun and Italy took place the second meeting on Health cooperation between Italy and Cameroun. The coordinated work of African doctors in Italy and local providers may represent the key point of any friutfull collaboration see also on Dr Nzepa projects.


Perugia and Montessori : The “Centro Internazionale Montessori ” of Perugia is a wonderful piece that integrated the activities of academic institutions (universities Italian and foreign) providing that special something to the city educational system. Google yesterday delighted us with a doodle dedicated to the great pedagogue, lucky that someone remembers.

The road of our project starts in Perugia, the city Hospitals and Universities since the XIX century had been a crossroad of cultures, and the gateway to many medical disciplines. The larger area of Umbria somehow reflected this presence with a strong tradition in hosting foreign students. Starting from the local integration between residents and students a global mission may be seen in Medical initiatives here designed.
The word developing has been chosen as part of the title of our project. Although the term developing usually is criticized implying a contraposition between opposites (underdeveloped areas and developed world). It may also be criticized assuming a generic desire to ‘develop’ towards a traditional ‘Western’ model of economic development.

The use of the word developing next to medicine was intended to be broad and encompassing basic achievement of medical practice and education in both ‘worlds’ (the western and the emerging countries) integrated with the concept of international citizenry.

The debate between historical relativism and ethnocentrism (eurocentric perspective) provide frontiers where we can venture the great themes offered by the migration movements and emerging national health care systems.
The weapons that we are equipped with a deep faith in liberty, respect for the “other” cultures and the desire to offer a transparent and open discussion of the readers.
