This is a serious crisis which has gotten almost no coverage in US media. Amidst a civil war hundreds of thousands of people have been displaced and have little access to health care, food, or safe water, and the situation has worsened drastically in the last couple of months.

In an epidemic of family and sexual abuse, victims in Papua New Guinea are often accused of witchcraft. But NGOs are beginning to make inroads to alleviate the problem. What can Western faiths, and countries, learn from this, as they try to stop gender-based violence?

Biomedical Sciences & Broadcast Journalism
Introduction
Erik Campano is a Research Associate at the Emergency Department of Columbia University-affiliated New York-Presbyterian Hospital, and a student in biomedical sciences at the university, with the goal of combining journalism and medical practice in the developing world. He also writes and edits for Patheos, the web’s premiere portal with original content on faith and non-faith, where he applies classic journalistic techniques to new multimedia technologies at Stories Untold. Campano was formerly local host of National Public Radio’s All Things Considered at WSHU in Fairfield, Connecticut, anchored weekend news at WNYC Public Radio in New York City, and filed nationally for National Public Radio and Marketplace from American Public Media. Campano also served as afternoon news anchor at WSTC/WNLK in Norwalk, Connecticut, now owned by WSHU. He has also hosted and reported the world news and reported on French culture at Radio France Internationale, and contributed as an editor at France24 Television, both in Paris. Prior to this he was a reporter and host of the world news at Deutsche Welle Radio, the international wing of ARD (German Public Broadcasting), and German-English translator for the press office of the Max Planck Society for the Advancement of Science. His journalistic work on developing countries sparked an interest in humanitarian medicine, and he studied biomedical sciences at the University of Paris between 2009 and 2011, finishing the première année commune aux études de santé at the University of Paris-Descartes. Campano completed his undergraduate work in 2000 in Symbolic Systems with a minor in Religious Studies at Stanford University in California, and spent the following year in Hakodate, Japan, with Stanford’s Volunteers in Asia program.

Campano has won numerous awards for radio production from the Connecticut Associated Press and the Connecticut Society of Professional Journalists.

An avid collaborative pianist, Campano runs the web’s only site dedicated to musical theater piano, The Orchestra Pit. He also enjoys writing short stories for performance. Campano volunteers in East Harlem at Exodus Transitional Community, which helps recently incarcerated men and women re-integrate into society, based on the belief that everyone is capable of overcoming socioeconomic struggles no matter what stigma they face. He was born and raised in Connecticut and is of first-generation German, Filipino, and Italian descent.
