"The absence of laboratory evidence of polio does not mean the absence of polio," said Annie Sparrow, assistant professor of global health and deputy director of the Human Rights Program at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City, who for the past year has been advising Syrian opposition aid workers on polio response.
...
Sparrow, a well-known critic of WHO in Syria, told IRIN that while the Assistance Coordination Unit, the Syrian opposition's humanitarian aid arm, had done "fantastic work", it came come up against access and other challenges that limited its capacity to get stool samples to laboratories for formal diagnosis.
"We know they are not able to do good surveillance in all areas," she said. "In settings of conflict and insecurity, we cannot rely on a laboratory diagnosis of polio and that is a very clear gap."
She also expressed low confidence in the accuracy of data collection and reporting on polio by the Syrian government. When the first cases were identified in Deir-ez-Zor province, she said, officials tried to deny they were polio.

"When you're near eradication, you want to prove... every last case," Sparrow cautioned.

Human Rights Watch workers gave crayons and paper to children in seven refugee camps along Darfur's border with Chad to keep them occupied as they interviewed their parents about the ethnic violence and starvation that has engulfed hundreds of villages in Darfur, said a Human Rights Watch researcher, Annie Sparrow. "When I first started collecting them, they were so shocking," Sparrow said of the drawings."It's not just that the children are scarred and traumatized by awful atrocities but the way they're devising this unique visual vocabulary that corroborates all the testimony we've taken from adults. "These are not generic guns that a 10-year-old boy would draw but guns they've actually seen," said Sparrow, who is a pediatrician."I sat down with a weapons expert who identified what the weapons were." Sparrow also contends that the details in the drawings provide more evidence of the involvement of the Sudan government. "The government of Sudan has repeatedly denied being involved in the crisis, but the janjaweed only have guns and horse and camels," she said.
