“Our conference will highlight the great strides we’ve made to address the gap in brain health research among indigenous Africans, despite Africa’s rich genetic diversity. We’ll delve into emerging research exploring how increasing African representation in research could unlock new insights and strategies for preventing and effectively treating dementia.” said Zul Merali, Director, Brain and Mind Institute at the Aga Khan University.

The conference builds on DAC’s intervention-focused position targeting lifestyle factors that can reduce the risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s.  At the conference, DAC will hold a roundtable geared towards allocating funding for brain health at the community and primary care physician level.

This conference will intentionally prioritize learnings from the global south with an emphasis on community health. The discourse offers a platform for leaders to share successes, understand shared challenges, and foster new collaborations that will drive future dementia research and care in Africa. The event is designed to facilitate a stronger network of dementia researchers and create a collaborative environment that can catalyze progress against dementia and Alzheimer’s and positively impact brain health.  Learn more about the event here.

  • Deriv’s CSR sponsorship programme supports the Kahuna team in collecting essential environmental data and improving global understanding of climate change.
  • In partnership with OSER and Cheer Up, the environmental expedition aims to uplift and educate young patients and students.

CYBERJAYA, Malaysia, May 16, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — As Deriv gears up to celebrate 25 years of innovation and responsibility, it proudly marks this milestone through a series of new initiatives that will have an impact in 2024 and beyond. The Kahuna sponsorship supports scientific research and community projects that provide educational value and inspire positive action towards protecting the environment.

Deriv recently sponsored the Kahuna team to carry out an environmental research expedition in Patagonia. The environmental expedition aimed to investigate the presence of microplastics and black carbon in the snow. These substances are critical indicators of environmental pollution that affect climate change.

The team partnered with the Argentinian Institute of Nivology, Glaciology, and Environmental Sciences and sought community outreach through collaborations with charitable organisations OSER and CheerUp (affiliated with CentraleSupelec).

Seema Hallon, Chief Human Resources Officer of Deriv, shares, “The 25th anniversary is an opportunity for Deriv to recommit to the things that matter to us as an organisation. Investing our CSR efforts in meaningful projects such as the Kahuna expedition is our way of contributing to the efforts for a sustainable future for the planet and communities.”

The expedition began in mid-January in Puerto Murta, Chile, with a team consisting of Baptistin Coutance, Robin Villard, Thomas Jarrey, Vincent Lavrov, and Yvan Lazard.

The route took them across Lago General Carrera, through Rio Baker into the Pacific fjords, along the Campo De Hielo Continental, ascending Volcan Lautaro and Cerro Francisco Moreno, where bad weather conditions led to an early ending of the journey.

Robin Villard shares, “The expedition was a success. The samples collected are in good condition and are scheduled for analysis in May and July. By the end of the summer, we should have results on the presence of microplastics in the ice field below. That’s a huge success.

“Our scientific research aimed to collect snow samples for analysis to determine the level of microplastics. Simply put, the samples will be examined under a microscope in the lab to see if there is significant pollution from microplastics in the snow.”

Expedition outcomes:

  • Research impact: The Kahuna team successfully collected and analysed samples from the region, providing valuable data for ongoing climate studies.
  • Community impact: Through real-time updates and subsequent presentations, the environmental expedition will provide educational and motivational experiences to young cancer patients and underprivileged students once their documentary film is ready.

The expedition faced challenges — adverse weather conditions and dangerous terrain, but could complete their research objectives effectively.

L’équipe s’est associée à l’Institut argentin de nivologie, de glaciologie et des sciences de l’environnement (IANIGLA) et a cherché à sensibiliser les communauté en collaborant avec des organisations de charité comme OSER et Cheer Up (affilié à CentraleSupélec) .

Selon Seema Hallon, la responsable des Ressources humaines de Deriv : « Ce 25e anniversaire est une occasion pour Deriv de renouveler son engagement envers ce qui compte pour notre organisation. Déployer nos efforts en matière de RSE dans des projets utiles comme l’expédition Kahuna est une façon pour nous de contribuer aux initiatives en faveur d’un futur durable pour la planète et les communautés. »

L’expédition a commencé à la mi-janvier à Puerto Murta au Chilie, avec une équipe qui comprenait Baptistin Coutance, Robin Villard, Thomas Jarrey, Vincent Lavrov et Yvan Lazard.

Le parcours a commencé avec le lac General Carrera, par le rio Baker dans les fjords du Pacifique, le long du Campo de Hielo Continental, et l’ascension du volcan Lautaro et du Cerro Francisco Moreno, où de mauvaises conditions climatiques ont prématurément entraîné la fin du périple.

Pour Robin Villard, « L’expédition était une réussite. Les échantillons recueillis sont de bonne qualité et leur analyse est prévue aux mois de mai et juillet. Dès la fin de l’été, nous devrions pouvoir obtenir les résultats de l’analyse de la présence de microplastiques dans le champ de glace ci-dessous. C’était un franc succès. »

Le but de notre recherche scientifique consistait à analyser les échantillons de neige, afin de déterminer le niveau de microplastiques. En d’autres termes, ces échantillons seront examinés au microscope en laboratoire pour déterminer le niveau de pollution aux microplastiques dans la neige. »

Résultats de l’expédition :

  • Impact de la recherche : L’équipe Kahuna a correctement recueilli et analysé les échantillons de la région, ce qui fournit des données intéressantes pour les études climatiques en cours.
  • Impact sur les communautés : L’expédition environnementale fournira des expériences éducatives et motivantes pour les jeunes patients souffrant de cancer et les étudiants défavorisés, grâce à des mises à jour en temps réel et des présentations subséquentes, une fois que leur film documentaire sera prêt.

Malgré des conditions climatiques défavorables et un terrain dangereux, l’expédition a néanmoins pu être parachevée suivant les objectifs de la recherche.

Robin Villard partilha: “A expedição foi um sucesso. As amostras recolhidas estão em bom estado e a sua análise está prevista para maio e julho. No final do verão, deveremos ter resultados sobre a presença de microplásticos no campo de gelo abaixo. Este feito representa um enorme sucesso.

A nossa investigação científica centrou-se na recolha de amostras de neve para análise, com o intuito de avaliar os níveis de microplásticos presentes. Simplificando, iremos examinar as amostras ao microscópio no laboratório para determinar a possível presença de uma poluição significativa de microplásticos na neve.”

Resultados da expedição:

  • Impacto da investigação: A equipa Kahuna recolheu e analisou com sucesso amostras da região, fornecendo dados valiosos para os estudos climáticos em curso.
  • Impacto na comunidade: Através de atualizações em tempo real e de apresentações subsequentes, a expedição ambiental proporcionará experiências educativas e motivacionais a jovens com cancro e a estudantes desfavorecidos quando o seu documentário estiver concluído.

A expedição enfrentou desafios, nomeadamente condições meteorológicas adversas e terreno perigoso, mas conseguiu cumprir eficazmente os seus objetivos de investigação.

Nigerian executives need strategic leadership to thrive–TEXEM faculty

Prof. John Peters, a faculty of the United Kingdom leadership development organisation, TEXEM, says CEOs and directors know that in the present turbulent times, organizations face multiple global and local challenges. Answering questions on TEXEM's website,, on the coming programme of the organization billed for Manchester, Peters says the million dollar question is, how can they win in these turbulent times? The TEXEM faculty asserts that Nigerian executives need strategic leadership and paradigm shift to thrive in such uncertain glocal business landscape. He said the programme, 'Strategic Leadership Unleashed: Thriving In An Uncertain GLOCAL World' will equip Nigerian and global leaders with the agility and foresight to navigate complexity successfully. 'Through this framework, leaders can anticipate market shifts, harness global opportunities, and address local nuances adeptly. 'For instance, adept strategic leaders can leverage cross-cultural insights to expand operations internationa lly while remaining rooted in local values, thus fostering sustainable growth. 'A prime example of a company embodying these principles is Dangote Group, which, under the strategic leadership of Aliko Dangote, has successfully expanded its footprint continent-wide while maintaining its Nigerian roots,' Peters said. According to him, these topics and more will be covered during the forthcoming TEXEM programme, which will be held in Manchester between May 26 and May 30. John Peters, former Chair of the Association of MBAs (an organisation that accredits Harvard, Stanford, Wharton and IMD), is a top world leadership speaker and survivor par excellence. He was a Prisoner of War during the Gulf War 1. He will be among the three faculty members delivering the TEXEM programme titled 'Strategic Leadership Unleashed: Thriving In An Uncertain GLOCAL World', which is billed for Manchester. Other faculty members include Prof. Rodria Laline (the inventor of the IP being used on all ATMs globally, Former SVP for Oracl e in Asia Pacific and Harvard, INSEAD and IMD Professor) Prof. Paul Griffith (the World's first Professor of Management to lead a team to launch a rocket into space) is also a faculty on this programme. Peters says understanding the changing roles of strategic leaders in these increasingly disruptive global and local times enables leaders to adopt a more holistic approach to decision-making to win. He added that it enables balancing short-term objectives with long-term considerations, creating value for all stakeholders, and ensuring the resilience and longevity of their organisations. Peters further explained how pressure can be utilised as a catalyst for innovation in problem-solving within an organisation. 'Pressure can be a powerful catalyst for innovation in problem-solving within an organisation by fostering urgency, resourcefulness, adaptive thinking, risk-taking, collaboration, learning, adaptation, and motivation among individuals and teams. 'When harnessed effectively, pressure can fuel creati vity and drive positive change, leading to breakthrough solutions that propel the organisation forward,' he said. Peters said leaders can employ several strategies to recognise a crisis as an opportunity for transformation and organisational excellence. According to the faculty, one of the strategies is to embrace a growth mindset, by reframing challenges as opportunities and building the organisation's core competence to respond to external threats. Peters says in this way, leaders can inspire a culture of resilience and creativity within the organisation. He said another strategy is to stay agile and adaptive explaining that by staying nimble and open to new possibilities, leaders can identify opportunities for transformation and guide the organisation towards excellence. Peters also prescribed encouragement of innovation saying by fostering a culture of innovation, leaders can harness the collective intelligence of their workforce to overcome challenges and seize opportunities. Focusing on purpose a nd values is another strategy prescribed by the TEXEM faculty. According to Peters, by anchoring decision-making and actions in core principles, leaders can ensure alignment and coherence across the organisation. He said they can also guide efforts towards transformative outcomes that uphold the organisation's mission and vision. Peters suggested communicating transparently, explaining that transparent communication fosters trust, builds resilience, and encourages collective problem-solving, laying the foundation for organisational excellence. He urged leaders and executives to empower and support employees saying by investing in employee well-being and development, leaders can foster a motivated and resilient workforce capable of driving transformation. Peters advised them to learn from adversity asserting that by embracing a mindset of continuous learning and improvement, leaders can leverage crises as catalysts for organisational excellence. 'For example renowned organisations such as Disney, Microso ft, Uber and Airbnb were all founded during economic crises. 'If they can thrive despite the challenging external environment so can Nigerian organisations,' the faculty said. Another strategy he prescribed for the leaders is to lead by example saying by embodying the values and behaviours they wish to see in others, leaders can inspire confidence, foster trust, and galvanise collective action towards transformative outcomes. 'By attending the forthcoming TEXEM programme you will be able to glean fresh insights into how to win in these volatile times,' Peters said. He offered some insights from Nigerian organisations and how their experiences can offer some lessons applicable to other contexts. Referring to the Dangote Group again, he said that one key strategy that has contributed to the group's resilience is diversification. 'The lesson here is the importance of diversification in building resilience and sustaining growth, particularly in volatile environments. 'Another is Guaranty Trust Bank: GTBank has leveraged technology to expand its reach and offer customers innovative financial products and services. 'The lesson here is the importance of embracing digital transformation and innovation to adapt to changing market conditions and meet customers' evolving needs,' Peters said. He also mentioned the Lagos State Government as another Nigerian entity with commendable core competence. 'The Lagos State Government has implemented various initiatives to ameliorate challenges such as traffic congestion, infrastructure deficits, and environmental degradation. 'The lesson here is the importance of proactive governance, strategic planning, and public-private partnerships in addressing complex challenges and driving sustainable development. 'Overall, many Nigerian organisations have demonstrated resilience, innovation, and adaptability in navigating crises, uncertainties and challenges,' Peters said. He said the key lessons from their experiences include the importance of diversification, digital transformati on, innovation, collaboration, and proactive governance in building resilience and sustaining growth in uncertain environments. 'While these lessons can be applied to challenges of the past, there is an urgent need to glean new insights on how to address present and future challenges such as how does geopolitics affect organisation's particularly in emerging markets and how can leaders turn these headwinds to tailwinds,' Peters said. Peters, Laline and Griffith will leverage TEXEM's tested and proven methodology that makes learning engaging, experiential, actionable and beneficial at the programme. Source: News Agency of Nigeria

He said there was need to integrate HIV and non-communicable disease services to improve care for those living with HIV. According to him, early detection and proactive management will mitigate the adverse health outcomes of hypertension and HIV/AIDS. 'Regular blood pressure monitoring is a critical component of HIV management because of the impact of factors like diet and lifestyle on blood pressure levels.'' Isah said that as Nigeria battled with the dual burden of HIV/AIDS and hypertension, the integration of care for both conditions emerged as a pressing need. He highlighted the importance of expanding access to healthcare se rvices for the effective management of chronic diseases, acknowledging the limitations of a healthcare system primarily structured for acute infections. 'With a significant number of people living with HIV in APIN's care experiencing Non-Communicable Diseases (NCD) such as hypertension, diabetes, renal diseases, cervical cancer, and mental health issues, we are strengthening the HIV-NCD service integration programme. 'Currently supporting 308,497 active people living with HIV across 423 health facilities in Nigeria, APIN aims to address the interconnected health challenges faced by this population.'' Isah said the impact of HIV infection on the cardiovascular system underscored its potential to heighten susceptibility to hypertension-induced end-organ damage, including cerebrovascular accidents (stroke), nephropathy (kidney damage) and myocardial infarction. He said there was significant risk factor associated with hypertension among people living with HIV and how it could contribute to challenges in HIV drug therapy, adherence, morbidity and mortality. 'Despite advancements in HIV treatment, disparities persist in monitoring and managing cardiovascular risk factors among individuals with HIV. 'Challenges to adequate care include fragmented healthcare systems, limited awareness of cardiovascular risks, and prevailing socio-economic factors.'' He said that APIN was committed to continuously monitoring and evaluating the integration of HIV and NCD services to ensure the delivery of high-quality care. 'As APIN expands its HIV-NCD integration programme across supported health facilities and states in Nigeria, individuals living with HIV can expect improved access to comprehensive care that prioritises their overall well-being. 'This initiative demonstrates APIN's dedication to promoting health equity and enhancing the quality of life for people living with HIV in Nigeria and beyond,' he said.
