Members of the Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan demonstrate in Peshawar, Pakistan, to condemn the anniversary of fundamentalists entering Kabul on April 28, 1998. Since the Taliban recaptured Kabul last month, fear has been rising in neighboring Pakistan about the effect that fundamentalism may have on its own citizens.

A pharmacist in an International Medical Corps mobile health clinic dispenses medicine to a sick child in a remote village in Pakistan’s Sindh province after a flood devastated the country in 2010 and left mobile medics looking for signs of the deadly cholera bacteria. Cholera outbreaks often occur in places where flooding and poor sanitation is prominent. Nigeria has been experiencing one of its worst outbreaks in years as a result of these conditions.
