Living with a rare disease

Rare Disease Day 2017

Millions around the world suffer from rare diseases that attract little attention in the public arena. On February 28th, those who endure these often-neglected illnesses will take centre stage in a global observation of Worldwide Rare Disease Day. This is an important day for increasing awareness of the many challenges unique to rare diseases.

What’s great about Rare Disease Day???

It focuses on the whole spectrum of rare diseases, and hopefully will prompt increased advocacy and better representation for all rare disorders.

Any illness that affects a small portion of the population is considered a rare disease, also known as an orphan disease. Although rare and genetic diseases, and many times the symptoms, are uncommon to most doctors, rare diseases as a whole represent a large medical challenge.

  • African trypanosomiasis, also known as sleeping sickness is a rare disease that occurs regularly in some regions of sub-Saharan Africa with the population at risk being about 70 million in 36 countries. As of 2010, over 9000 deaths per year have been reported. An estimated 30,000 people are currently infected with an average of 7,000 new infections per year. More than 80% of these cases are in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
  • Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressive (FOP) is an extremely rare connective tissue disease. The disease is caused by a mutation of the body’s repair mechanism, which causes fibrous tissue. As of 2017, approximately 800 cases of FOP have been confirmed worldwide making FOP one of the rarest diseases known.

Here are some facts about rare diseases that you may not already know:

  • Rare diseases impact more people than AIDS and cancer combined
  • 95% of rare diseases do not have a single drug
  • Only 15% of rare diseases have organizations or foundations providing support or driving research

Paying tribute to the millions of families whose daily lives are impacted, and who are living day-by-day, hand-in-hand with rare disease patients.

A Person’s Disease May Be RARE but Their Hope Should Not Be.

Texila Master’s Degree Enhances Professor’s Career Opportunities

For Professor Rodrick Sakamba, Texila American University (Texila) Zambia provided the perfect opportunity that he was looking for, a professional advancement in his career.

Thus, the Professor enrolled into the University’s Master’s Degree in Management program, from which he graduated in 2015. This programme is essential because it provides an integrated set of learning opportunities for students interested in mastering the skills and knowledge necessary for effectively participating in and managing modern organizations.

“Graduating from Texila Zambia has already yielded benefits for my career as it has given me a promotion and career development,” Professor Sakamba said.

Before embarking on this career defining learning opportunity, Professor Sakamba was the Dean of Business in a renowned University. However, the elevation of Texila Zambia qualification has lifted him to the Post-Graduate Director of the university in order to manage the university’s postgraduate programs.

The Professor, who attained his qualification through Texila Zambia’s Distance and Blended Learning Program (DBLP), encourages new students going to the university to help them make the most of their time by reminding them that Texila Zambia is one of the modern international Universities with vast teachings aids such as Moodle facility well suited for e-Learning.

Texila’s acclaimed BRICS Model is a uniquely designed teaching and learning method of delivering DBLP that is block based and that ensures a dedicated learning of one course at a time for a specified period.

Professor Sakamba, who after his graduation from Texila Zambia got accepted to study the PhD in Educational Psychology programme with a renowned University in Mexico, further advised the university to explore further its marketing as there were currently very few universities in Africa, particularly in Zambia, that have reliable E-learning facilities.

Critical Components you need to check before joining a Medical University

The trend of pursuing medical studies abroad is gearing up at a steady pace and is gaining momentum every year. As a result of this, many students and parents are being presented with a variety of options in terms of medical universities abroad, putting many in a dilemma, as to which destination to choose.

There are several factors to consider while choosing the University Abroad for Medical Studies. Exposure in terms of clinical rotation will be a biggest challenge as most of the countries (China, Russia, Ukraine, Philippines) have less than 8% of English speaking population – interaction with the patients will be challenging task which plays a critical role in exposure while they study. Another critical factor is the Local Medical Council Recognition of the University!


Texila American University is listed in Medical Council of India (MCI) and Medical Council of Guyana (MCG).

How important are the local medical council registrations for a Medical University?

Students who pursue medical studies abroad must clear their screening test conducted by Medical Council of their respective country before they start practicing as a doctor.

The Local Medical Council ensures that doctors who have qualified abroad and wish to work in their home country, have obtained the appropriate qualifications from a recognized University and can practice in their home country.

What other major recognition can a Student look for?

Some of the Major recognition’s that a student looks at a University include the following:


Texila American University

World Health Organization (WHO)

Texila is listed in WHO – AVICENNA Directories

National Accreditation Council of Guyana (NAC)

Texila is recognized by NAC Guyana

Medical Council of Guyana (MCG)

Texila is listed in MCG

Medical Council of India (MCI)

Texila is listed in MCI

Pass Ratio of Medical Council Screening Tests

Upon successful completion of the program with the University, students have to clear the Local Medical Council Exams to practice as a Doctor in their home country. Texila has a history of 100% pass ratio for the Local Medical Council Exams from India and Nigeria. Students graduated from Texila had cleared their Local Medical Council Exams in their first attempts itself.

The quality of medical education offered should be your top priority. One need to look at couple of things like the facilities at the institution, curriculum, assignment submission patterns, faculties, research publications, lab and library facilities etc..

Pharmacists On Demand

Pharmacists represent the third largest health professional group in the U.S. With a Bachelor degree in Pharmacy (B Pharm), some pharmacists work in non-patient care settings as well (e.g., teaching, research, and administration).

“Whether in hospital, retail or public health sector, pharmacists play an important role in counselling patients, reducing medication errors and providing assistance with accuracy. The role of pharmacists is thus far greater than simply filling and dispensing prescribed medications. A forecast report from American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) says that there will be a shortfall of as many as 157,000 pharmacists by 2020”. 

The subject of pharmacy has evolved as a multidisciplinary curriculum with the emergence of the concept of “global healthcare”. The growth of patient care responsibilities has created the need to study pharmacy programs to research disease process, acquire Pharmacotherapy knowledge and to improve patient monitoring skills.


 TAU launched Pharmacy program for school students and D Pharm holders to upgrade to B.Pharm.

Medications and drug therapies, identification of new uses for existing medications, increased numbers of authorized prescribers, increased affordability and availability of more generic drugs and more.

Not surprisingly, this growth generated a demand for pharmacists in hospitals and clinics, as well as in retail, government, and academic settings. Because growth of the workforce had not kept pace with the demand for services – due in part to the lack of growth in educational opportunities for many years – a nationwide pharmacist shortage developed in the late 1990s.

No matter where in the country a young pharmacist wanted to settle down, the number of jobs available far exceeded the number of people qualified to fill them.
