A massive #polio vaccination campaign is underway all over #Afghanistan. Over 9.5 million children will receive the polio vaccine and also vitamin A to boost their immune system.
This little boy is holding up his pinky finger marked with indelible ink to show he has just received his polio vaccine.

Have you ever heard of yaws? It’s an infectious disease that mainly affects children living in poor, remote communities.
The good news? We have a cure that works, and we are working for a world free of yaws by 2020.

Today is World #NoTobacco‬  Day. Tobacco kills 6 million people every year. Today, some governments around the world are working to introduce plain packaging (prohibit the use of logos, colours, brand images or promotional info) to reduce the attractiveness of tobacco products.
Reducing tobacco use can save lives. Get ready for plain packaging.

Global life expectancy increased by 5 years between 2000 and 2015, the fastest increase since the 1960s!
The increase was greatest in Africa, where life expectancy increased by 9.4 years to 60 years, driven mainly by improvements in child survival, progress in malaria control and expanded access to antiretrovirals for treatment of HIV.
However, major inequalities persist within and among countries.

422 million people have #diabetes‎‬  around the world. That’s almost four times the number of people living with diabetes than in 1980! Most of them live in developing countries, and factors driving this dramatic rise include overweight and obesity. 
We dedicate #WorldHealthDay , 7 April, to this growing problem. We need to step up prevention and treatment of the disease. Together, we can beat diabetes.

As the rainy season begins in the city of #Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo, the biggest ever #yellowfever emergency #vaccination campaign in Africa is drawing to a close. More than 7 million people in Kinshasa province have been successfully vaccinated in the last 2 weeks. But in the country’s remote areas on the #Angola border, the campaign is still being rolled out, targeting a further 3 million people at risk with the aim of ending this #outbreak of the potentially fatal disease.

The new building is nice with a pretty good cafeteria; the older buildings are rather dilapidated.
