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.

Films showing smoking scenes should be rated to protect children from tobacco addiction.
Big tobacco exploits movies to recruit our children as new smokers. Take action against on-screen smoking! http://goo.gl/m0nnEk #NoTobacco

#Malawi‬  is making progress in its fight against child mortality by moving critical health services closer to families who live in remote, rural areas. With support from Canada, WHO and the Ministry of Health of Malawi are training community health workers to treat common childhood diseases like diarrhoea, malaria & pneumonia. These diseases accounted for 45% of deaths among children under 5 years of age in Malawi in 2012 . Here's the story: http://goo.gl/cHRQtT

It would be experimental I would grow Ginkgo Balboa trees in the Zika occurring growing zones because the leaves of this tree are used for Brain improvement .also Bacopin for memory.and St Johns Wort for Brain fever. Just growing these Brain enhancing plants could help. Consider what other crop or plant that is growing there maybe they should be studied as well and replaced with Sunflowers.

Great news! Today, WHO declares the end of ‪#‎Ebola‬ virus transmission in ‪#‎Guinea‬. The country now enters a 90-day period of heightened surveillance to ensure that any new cases are identified quickly before they can spread to other people.
We commend the government and the people of Guinea.
WHO and the ‪#‎EbolaResponse‬ partners will continue to support Guinea during the heightened surveillance stage, and in its early efforts to restart and strengthen essential health services: http://goo.gl/ioEK3D

#AntibioticResistance  is one of the biggest threats to global health today, it can affect anyone. Antibiotics are a precious resource that we cannot take for granted –we need to handle them with care.
Remember: only take antibiotics a health professional has prescribed TO YOU.

An estimated 3.7 billion people –two thirds of the global population under the age of 50– are infected with #herpes‬  simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1). Herpes is a lifelong infection, which often has mild or no symptoms but can be detected by the presence of antibodies in the blood. Herpes simplex virus is categorized into two types: 1 and 2. Both are highly infectious and incurable. HSV-1 is primarily transmitted by oral-oral contact and in most cases causes orolabial herpes or “cold sores” around the mouth. Herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) is almost entirely sexually transmitted through skin-to-skin contact, causing genital herpes: http://goo.gl/EjnCdX
More than 3.7 billion people under the age of 50 – or 67% of the population – are infected with herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1), according to WHO’s first global estimates of HSV-1 infection published today in the journal PLOS ONE.
