[en] Botswana has experienced a dramatic increase in HIV-related malignancies over the past decade. The BOTSOGO collaboration sought to establish a sustainable partnership with the Botswana oncology community to improve cancer care. This collaboration is anchored by regular tumor boards and on-site visits that have resulted in the introduction of new approaches to treatment and perceived improvements in care, providing a model for partnership between academic oncology centers and high-burden countries with limited resources

[en] Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is located in the Northern Cape Province of South Africa and neighbouring Botswana. The local communities on the South African side, the Khomani San (Bushmen) and Mier living adjacent to the park have land rights inside and outside the park. The path from a history of land dispossession to being land owners has created conservation challenges manifested through heightened inter- and intra-community conflicts. The contestations for land and tourism development opportunities in and outside the park have drawn in powerful institutions such as the governments, South African National Parks, private safari companies, local interest groups and NGOs against relatively powerless local communities. This has consequently attracted national and international interest since it may result in further marginalization of the communities who lack the power to negotiate resource access. Moreover, the social and political system of the San is romanticized while little is reported about the Mier, who are an integral part of the park management system. To make these issues more accessible to a growing audience of interested parties and to better understand present conservation and development challenges and opportunities, this paper synthesizes information on the pre- and post-land restitution history of the park and the adjacent communities.
[en] Botswana is at the extreme southern extent of the African tsetse belt, and most of the country does not provide a suitable environment for the maintenance of breeding tsetse fly populations. The principal permanent habitat is the Okavango Delta and its associated northern river system. The Okavango Delta is a sparsely settled area of permanent swamp, seasonal floodplain and low-lying islands. Tsetse existed in the delta long before written history of the area came into existence. Much of this infestation died out during the great rinderpest pandemic at the turn of the century, which decimated the host animals. Following collapse of the fly population, people took advantage of the situation and occupied more hospitable parts of the delta. However, the fly population eventually expanded to meet the settlers and in the early 1940's a conflict of interest arose. The Department of Tsetse Fly Control was subsequently formed. 1 tab
