“The doctors really took great care of me and I am telling everyone that people who are infected need to go to the hospital,” says Abdullah D, a 29-year-old father from #Conakry , #Guinea .

After 10 days of care in an isolation ward, Abdullah has now tested negative for #Ebola and can return to his twins.

The earlier #Ebola -infected people go to a hospital’s isolation ward and get specialist care, the higher their chance of survival: http://goo.gl/2LcncJ

#Indonesia, with more than 17,000 islands, sits on the so-called "ring of fire" of the Pacific, Eurasian and Australian tectonic plates, making it vulnerable to disasters.

The archipelago is frequently hit by floods, earthquakes, volcano eruptions, tsunamis, storms and landslides - making disaster risk reduction a high priority for the Indonesian Government.

#Hepatitis C affects an estimated 130-150 million people but many people remain unaware - sometimes for decades - that they are infected. #HepC

Most often, #Hepatitis C is transmitted by blood via unsterilized equipment during medical procedures, skin piercing, tattooing or injecting drugs.

If you are going for a tattoo or piercing, make sure the needles are sterilized.

Juggling a busy family life and professional commitments can be a challenge. Working parents Ditta and Richard meant to take baby Dora for the second dose of the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine but somehow it just slipped their minds. Then they found themselves in the midst of a measles outbreak.

Find out about a new app to help parents keep track of when their children are due for immunizations: http://goo.gl/NB9TYG 

How do you make sure that your vaccinations are up to date? #RUuptodate

Treat the body, heal the soul.

Since ‪#‎Mexico‬ began covering breast cancer treatment for women who could not otherwise afford it, thousands of women have been diagnosed, treated and survived the disease.

好消息 or Good news! WHO’s China Office is now on Weibo: http://www.weibo.com/whoinchina

New report launched today: Large, graphic health warnings on tobacco packaging in China would increase awareness about the harms of smoking and help cut smoking rates. 

“A picture is worth a thousand words. In China a picture could be worth a thousand lives. It is time for China to kick its tobacco habit,” says Dr. Bernard Schwartländer, WHO Representative in China. Share if you agree!
