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.

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.

Best prevention is good hygiene and cleaniness. It is common in poor, overcrowded living condition. A single long acting penicillin injection is all you need to treat yaws. caused by similar bug to syphyllis but not a STD.

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.

According to laboratories which discover new scientific evidence every moment, fat is the cause of chronic hepatitis. The fat enters your liver and disintegrates to glycerol, which is half fat and half sugar which liquefies together. This doesn't only cause diabetes, but also causes chronic hepatitis. What actually happens inside your body, the liver creates too much glycerol out of fat, and that can eventually infect the liver and cause chronic hepatitis. We blame sugar for many incidents, however, it is fat, in this case (and in many other cases) which is the true killer. I suggest more research on this topic, because scientific websites and offline scientific research suggest that fat can be toxic enough to cause hepatitis, just like it causes fatty liver disease. Thankyou very much.

Hey guys you make it so incredibly complicated to notify you..

There is a village just south of Vilancoulos in central Mozambique on the coast that has at least 8 people with microencephalitis or rather......incredibly small heads. Those are the people who were willing to come down to the waters edge in daylight. Apparently there are more who only venture out at night.!
Please investigate or should I contact WHO in Geneva?
