Co-production of evidence for policies in Thailand: from concept to action – The BMJ

Viroj Tangcharoensathien and colleagues apply the triangle that moves the mountain to analyse the co-production of evidence for health policy making in Thailand Co-produced knowledge is increasingly being used to inform health policy decisions.123 In Thailand, legal provisions set out in the 2017 constitution mandate the state to convene public hearings with affected communities before approving projects which may have health and wellbeing implications.4 Public involvement in decisions about health systems is not new in Thailand and has been a part of its health systems reforms since the 1990s.5 The co-production concept known as the triangle that moves the mountain, was described in 1997 by Prawase Wasi, a highly recognised health leader in Thailand. The triangle has three power poles representing policy makers, politicians, local administrative organisations, and government services (government sector); civil society, communities, and citizens (peoples sector); and academia, think tanks, and research institutions, (knowledge sector). The core principle is that the three groups work together to achieve a common goalthat is, to move the mountain

Genetic Analysis Reveals Evolution of the Enigmatic Y Chromosome in Great Apes – SciTechDaily

Researchers have reconstructed the ancestral sequence of the great ape Y chromosome by comparing three existing (gorilla, human, and chimpanzee) and two newly generated (orangutan and bonobo) Y chromosome assemblies. The new research shows that many gene families and multi-copy sequences were already present in the great ape Y common ancestor and that the chimpanzee and bonobo lineages experienced accelerated gene death and nucleotide substitution rates after their divergence from the human lineage

Viewpoint on sex and gender: Has the New England Journal abandoned science for woke political correctness? – Genetic Literacy Project

Two years ago, Titania McGrath, whose satirical Twitter accountregularly skewers the ideological excesses of social-justice culture,suggestedthat we should remove biological sex from birth certificates altogether to prevent any more mistakes. The joke (obvious to those who follow the culture wars closely, but perhaps obscure to those who dont) was directed at gender activists who insist that male and female designations assigned at birth are misleading (and even dangerous), since they may misrepresent a persons true gender identitythat internally felt soul-like quality that supposedly transcends such superficial physical indicia as gonads and genitalia.

HARPER-SHIPMAN & BAKO – Black Bodies, White Spaces: The Complicit Reproduction of the African Tragedy by the Global Health Industry – The Elephant

The launch of Kongomano La Mageuzi-VUMA (KLM-VUMA) comes at a time when COVID-19 has brought home to the planet, the African continent and our country that we must reject all normality past and present and imagine new societies that are just, free, peaceful, non-militaristic, ecologically safe, egalitarian and equitable, non-racist, non-ethnic, gender-just, prosperous, and socialist. Of course, from lessons learnt over the last 100 years, socialism is being critiqued, historicised, and problematised in various creative ways. The focus seems to be on consolidating the strengths of socialism and mitigating its weaknesses.

Art through the evolutionary lens – Times of Malta

Looking at art through an evolutionary lens, which is what my good friend and art specialist Joseph Agius has asked me to do, opens up a big box of questions.
