Isolated Peruvian tribes like Mashco Piro have clashed in the past with loggers, poachers and drug traffickers who invaded their jungle enclaves, but anthropologists say the lure of modern tools is now tempting them closer than ever to far-flung villages and tourist camps. Their sorties are dangerous, exposing them to the threat of violent encounters with terrified locals and modern-day diseases against which the hunter-gatherers have little immunity.

Yiorgos, 30, a Greek drug addict, injects himself with narcotics as police officers approach him in central Athens January 13, 2012. The WHO (World Health Organization) recommends that 200 clean syringes are provided per drug user per year, to limit HIV infection. Greece has been providing three, the Hellenic Centre says. The problem in Greece has been aggravated by increased drug use. Historically, only about a quarter of people newly infected with HIV in Greece were injecting drug users. But 174 drug users have tested positive to mid October 2011. The Hellenic Centre says that will be around 200 by the end of the year. Greece's financial crisis has resulted in a drop in its health spending by 36 percent last year, according to the National School of Public Health.

Leslie Ayala, a tuberculosis patient reacts while receiving free treatment at a medical post in the outskirts of Lima October 24, 2011. Peru is the third American country with the highest incidence of tuberculosis after Haiti and Bolivia. Treatment for tuberculosis costs more than $2500 per patient and can stretch over some two years. Peru's capital, Lima accounts for more than half the cases of the disease, with the majority concentrated in the poor surrounding districts due to problems of overcrowding and malnutrition, according to the Partners in Health Peru NGO.

A girl reacts as she receives a flu vaccine shot during a medical mission conducted by a civic group as part of the U.N.'s countdown to the seven billion global population, in Tondo, Manila October 29, 2011. The world's population will reach seven billion on October 31, 2011, according to projections by the United Nations, which says this global milestone presents both an opportunity and a challenge for the planet. While more people are living longer and healthier lives, says the U.N., gaps between rich and poor are widening and more people than ever are vulnerable to food insecurity and water shortages.
