How to avoid computer infection while working with low-bandwidth/high rates of computer infection

Sitting in a Monitoring and Evaluation training at the Infectious Disease Institute in Kampala, I start typing up our group work on my computer. Being a fast typist, I knew this would be my contribution to the group as my fellow group members were M&E officers, statisticians, data managers and project managers.

Threats to Liberty

‘’Man is born free but he is everywhere in chains. ’Freedom and Liberty have been the main objectives and purpose of life for all the intellectuals.
