Gail Dufault, the Transitional Healthcare Coordinator at the Barnstable County House of Corrections, checks that a dose of Vivitrol is mixed properly before administering the drug to inmate Kenneth Saglibene at the prison in Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts September 2, 2014. Barnstable is believed to be the first jail in the country to launch an intensive voluntary recovery program for opiate-addicted inmates with the use of Vivitrol, an injectable non-narcotic drug that blocks receptors in the brain and bars addicts from getting high off heroin and other opioids for about 25 days, at a cost of about $1,000 a shot.

Ward physician Thomas Klotzkowski wears a protective suit at the quarantine station for patients with infectious diseases at the Charite hospital in Berlin August 11, 2014. The isolation ward at the Charite is one of several centres in Germany equipped to treat patients suffering from ebola and other highly infectious diseases, the clinic's doctor for tropical medicine Florian Steiner said. Ebola is one of the deadliest diseases known to humanity. It has no proven cure and there is no vaccine to prevent infection. The most effective treatment involves alleviating symptoms that include fever, vomiting and diarrhoea. The rigorous use of quarantine is needed to prevent its spread, as well as high standards of hygiene for anyone who might come into contact with the disease. The sign reads: "Do not Enter. Infectious Diseases. No Trespassing!" REUTERS/Thomas Peter (GERMANY - Tags: HEALTH)

Marcelo Echevarria, 6, receives tuition at the William Soler Children's Heart Center as he waits for surgery in Havana October 7, 2013. For the 22nd consecutive year, Cuba will ask the United Nations to condemn the United States economic embargo against the island, a top Cuban official announced on Monday, accusing Washington of tightening sanctions in place for more than half a century. Cuba held the news conference, where it announced the draft U.N. resolution calling for an end to the embargo, at the William Soler children's heart center to emphasize that the sanctions do not discriminate between the country's political leadership and innocent people and amounts to what it calls "genocide." The hospital's director, Eugenio Selman-Housein Sosa, said his center often lacked the most modern equipment and medicines because U.S. companies predominated in some sectors and Washington's regulations on checking end-users made business next to impossible.

Cancer patient Stew Scannell receives an intravenous dose of Lambrolizumab during a promising cancer treatment clinical trial at UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, California August 19, 2013. When Scannell was first diagnosed with brain metastases and an incurable melanoma, he was not expected to live long. Now he flies to Los Angeles from his home in Oklahoma every three weeks for injections of the drug Lambrolizumab, or MK-3475, from which he says he feels no negative side effects. He adds that the drug appears to help his body's immune system fight off his cancer cells, and testing indicates a significant reduction in the number and size of his cancers. He is now continuing to work and is helping some of his colleagues rebuild after their losses in the Oklahoma tornadoes earlier this year.
