Ready to Beat Malaria

Vysnova joins the U.S. Naval Medical Research Center Asia, CDC, WHO and 100s of partner organizations in promoting this year’s World Malaria Day Theme, Ready to Beat Malaria. This theme underscores the commitment of the global malaria community in uniting around the common goal of a world free of malaria. Vysnova is proud to support Malaria research programs in several countries on behalf of the U.S. Navy.

Quick data points regarding Malaria (source WHO):

  • In 2016, there were 216 million cases of Malaria worldwide.
  • In 2016, there were 445,000 malaria-related deaths worldwide.

After an unprecedented period of success in malaria control, progress has stalled.

  • The current pace is insufficient to achieve the 2020 milestones of the WHO Global Technical Strategy for Malaria 2016–2030 – specifically, targets calling for a 40% reduction in malaria case incidence and death rates.
  • Countries with ongoing transmission are increasingly falling into one of two categories: those moving towards elimination and those with a high burden of the disease that have reported significant increases in malaria cases.

Without urgent action, the major gains in the fight against malaria are under threat. On this World Malaria Day, WHO continues to call for greater investment and expanded coverage of proven tools that prevent, diagnose and treat malaria.

Vysnova Celebrates African American History Month

Vysnova Partners celebrates African American History Month by honoring the many African American health pioneers and the impact they have had on healthcare and health research. From Dr. Patricia Bath, the first African American female physician awarded a patent for a medical invention and a current advocate of telemedicine and emerging technology in medical diagnosis and treatment, to Dr. Solomon Fuller who pioneered Alzheimer’s research and advanced the study of many other neurodegenerative diseases, African American health professionals have advanced the world of healthcare and health research invaluably. To name a few, other African American innovators of the health industry include Dr. Jane Wright who elevated chemotherapy to a viable treatment option rather than a last-ditch effort at treating cancer, Dr. Charles Drew who led in the storing of blood for transfusions in blood plasma and organized the first large-scale blood bank in the U.S. during WWII, and Dr. Daniel Williams who was one of the first physicians of any race to successfully perform open-heart surgery. Vysnova Partners tips its hat to these and the countless other African Americans who have helped improve the health of the national and global community.

Vysnova Partners Participates in Its First CSR Event: Walk to End Alzheimer’s

PHILADELPHIA, PA – November 11, 2017 – Vysnova Partners participated in Philadelphia’s annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s, the world’s largest event dedicated to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support, and research. Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States, and it’s the only cause of death in the U.S.’s top ten that cannot be prevented, cured, or slowed.[1]

Dee’s Memory Squad, including sponsor Vysnova Partners, at Walk to End Alzheimer’s in Philadelphia, PA, November 10, 2017.

As Vysnova Partners grows, corporate social responsibility is a value that it aims to uphold. The company seeks new ways to give back to the local community and the international community, especially in health research, care, and support. Vysnova prides itself on being small enough to be able to support issues that are important to its employees. As several of Vysnova’s employees have known or loved someone affected by Alzheimer’s, Vysnova appreciated the opportunity to support a cause close to the hearts of its employees.

Vysnova employees travelled to Philadelphia, PA on the weekend of November 11 and sponsored Dee’s Memory Squad, which was a registered team walking for Dee Fynes, a relative of Vysnova COO Dr. John Fallon.  Regarding the Walk and the sponsored social events following the event, Dr. Fallon offered that, “Vysnova is honored to dedicate its resources, time, and effort towards such a worthy cause and to specifically support such a beloved family member in Dee.  I personally want to thank the Vysnova family for its willingness to spread its core mission of improving public health outside of its immediate work activities.”  Dee’s Memory Squad comprised part of the overall  8,465 other participants in a Walk around Citizens Bank Park, sporting flowers to show their connection to the cause. The Philadelphia walk raised $1,32,349.05 for Alzheimer’s Association’s research, prevention, and treatment.

Vysnova looks forward to continuing its support of community and global health initiatives like the Walk to End Alzheimer’s as it plans its next CSR event in the Spring.
