Since 2007 WHO has provided technical support to the Government of #VietNam‬  to continuously improve its laws and regulations related to helmets for motorcyclists. For motorcyclists of all ages, the appropriate use of a helmet reduces the risk of death by 40% and the risk of serious head injury by 70%. Although progress still needs to be made, helmet wearing rates among children in Viet Nam have increased to 56%

Bravo to all of us in Liberia but we need to advice my fellow Liberians to continue with the necessary precautions on the preventive measures on Ebola Virus Disease. Let us realize that continuous practice always lead to victory.

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

After an earthquake like #NepalEarthquake ‬, the water supply is often damaged and contaminated, increasing the risk that people drinking it could develop diarrhoeal diseases http://goo.gl/Nzx26w

In addition to setting up systems to identify these diseases early, WHO, the #Nepal‬  Government and other health partners are providing safe water supplies and sanitation facilities, such as pit latrines and mobile toilets, to the camps.
 
“WHO has been supplying chlorine tablets to treat drinking water and materials including soap and towels to improve hygiene, which reduces the risk of disease,” says Payden, WHO’s Regional Advisor for Water, Sanitation and Health.

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.
