The world is on the verge of an effective ‪#‎Ebola‬ vaccine. Results from an interim analysis of the ‪#‎Guinea‬ Phase III efficacy vaccine trial show that the vaccine VSV-EBOV is highly effective against Ebola. While the vaccine up to now shows 100% efficacy in individuals, more conclusive evidence is needed and trials will continue. This is an extremely promising development. This record-breaking work marks a turning point in the history of health research and development: http://goo.gl/HTVQQq

WHO’s team - part of the joint mission on #MERS‬  with the Republic of Korea’s Ministry of Health and Welfare - has arrived in Seoul this morning.

The team will work the next few days to gain information and review the situation in the Republic of Korea to better understand the virus, the spread of the disease and the symptoms patients develop when they are sick #SouthKorea  #‎메르스‬ ‪

31 May is World #NoTobacco  Day 

Illicit trade makes tobacco products more affordable and accessible to people from low-income groups and children.
Illicit tobacco products are typically sold at lower prices, thereby increasing consumption.
Eliminating or reducing illicit trade of tobacco products will reduce tobacco consumption by restricting cheap tobacco products.

Thanks to the preparations #Nepal 's government had made with support from WHO and its partners, when the #NepalEarthquake   struck on 25 April, health services kept functioning in many areas that had been affected.
Within 2 hours after the earthquake, WHO was in close coordination with Nepalese Government and offered support.
Funds were distributed through the South-East Asia Regional Health Emergency Funds to meet immediate, critical needs during the first few days after the disaster

"We are a team of 12 healthcare workers, comprising of different skills including medical doctors, nurses, a lab technician and a pharmacist. Supported by WHO, the team was quickly deployed to work in the Lake Tanganyika Stadium #cholera  treatment centre, set up here in the Kigoma region in #Tanzania  to respond to the ongoing cholera outbreak in the area. One of the key successes has been to put proper triage in place, isolate the patients and ensure adequate infection, prevention and control (IPC) measurements are adhered to."
-Dr Nassoro Ally Matuzya, Rapid Response Team Leader, WHO Tanzania

To make this statement: "The World Health Organization has stated repeatedly that transportation restrictions impede the ability to respond to the outbreak with necessary personnel and supplies, and state that travel restrictions and closure of borders at points of entry are not recommended." Allowing anyone to make leisure visits to infected areas is not working. If personnel is sent, they shouldn't be able to leave till it's over. So much for science over religion if WHO thinks like that.

The World Health Organization is responsible for keeping public safety from disease and keeping the public healthy. However because they have so much to handle, they have a slower response towards disease outbreaks.
