The program is one of six similar Community – Based Treatment Support Programs in resource-constrained communities in sub-Saharan Africa is SECURE THE FUTURE SECURE THE FUTURE. The other programs are in Swaziland, Lesotho, Namibia, Botswana and Mali.

SECURE THE FUTURE is an unprecedented public-private initiative in 1999 by Bristol-Myers Squibb and the Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation launched to alleviate the HIV / AIDS crisis among women and children in sub-Saharan Africa.

The company has $ 120,000 in the initiative.For 20 years and with certain genes smoke significantly increases a risk of aneurysms.

Investigators reported two new studies, from family aneurisms project, financed by a multinational collaboration by the National Institutes of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, about the genetic and other risk factors which in the families with at least two members, the aneurysmal of intracranial affected to study.

In this study had approximately 22 % of inspections for at least copy said gene variation on chromosome 8 is and 73 per cent was at least a copy to the ninth version for chromosomes Broderick note that this %age over what can be expected of the general population – at least among whites in this region. These results are tell us the approximate position the risks-inducing gene in the chromosomes, but non the exact gene or how it functions contribute of the risk of aneurysm, said Broderick, principal investigator for the FIA project.
