A patient is seen in a hallway at the regional psycho-neurological hospital on the outskirts of Slovyanoserbsk, in a territory controlled by "Lugansk People's Republic" (LPR), eastern Ukraine, December 1, 2014. The Psycho-Neurological Hospital outside the village of Slovyanoserbsk is caught in the crossfire in separatist-held territory about 30 km (20 miles) northwest of the rebel stronghold of Luhansk and near the frontline. Medical workers say the head of the hospital was killed by a shell in Luhansk and about half the 180 staff have fled. There were 400 patients when fighting began, they say.

Owner Dora Kettinger talks to her dogs after an examination in a neurology clinic in Budapest February 9, 2014. Hungarian researchers conducted the first comparative dog and human brain study with developing dog training methods to make them lay motionless in MRI machines. The study was done to understand how dogs can be so remarkably good at tuning into the feelings of their owners. Picture taken February 9, 2014.

A child receives a drop of polio vaccine at the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) supported Jalozai camp on the outskirts of Peshawar September 25, 2012. Polio attacks the central nervous system and can cause permanent paralysis within hours of infection. There is no cure for polio, but it can be prevented. A polio vaccine given in several doses can protect a child for life. Immunising the last children on earth is an expensive, business - not because the vaccine is costly (most are made by generic manufacturers and cost between 12 and 14 U.S. cents a dose), but because reaching people displaced by war and poverty requires vast operational logistics, time and human resources.
