A 5-day nationwide #polio  immunization campaign targeting 5.8 million children under 5 years of age began in #Iraq  on Sunday. 
Organized by the Kurdistan Regional Ministry of Health, the event was held to help mark one year since the last case of polio was reported in the country.
Iraq is one of the countries at highest risk for polio in the Region due to vulnerable populations living in multiple governorates. Vaccination teams will exert extra effort to reach children within these populations during the April campaign, with approximately 24,000 health workers set to conduct house-to-house visits

WHO socio-anthropologist together with the Women Association in the Isle of Kito, #Guinea , held a discussion with fishermen and fish sellers in Bongolon to understand better their concerns on #Ebola  - their perception of the disease, their fears and what do they propose so they could work closer with WHO in controlling Ebola.

Только не понятно, о чём вы там с людьми разговариваете? С вашими познаниями в медицине средины прошлого века?
Могу предложить такой вариант. Можно организовать обучение врачей с территории распространения Эболы эффективным и безопасным технологиям противовирусной терапии на базе факультета усовершенствования врачей например львовского медицинского университета. Ознакомим их с протоколами комплексного лечения и обеспечим нужными препаратами по ценам доступным для экономики этих стран...
Или "зачистка" у вас, как всегда, состоит в ожидании, пока все заражённые вымрут? Под вашим чутким руководством половина уже умерла. Не пора ли руководству подавать в отставку  по причине некомпетентности?

WHO is seeking US$ 25.2 million to meet humanitarian health needs in #Yemen for the coming 3 months 

“Health needs in Yemen are increasing by the day” said Dr Ahmed Shadoul, WHO Representative in Yemen. “Health facilities, and health and sanitation infrastructure, have been damaged. Power cuts and fuel shortages are threatening the provision of life-saving health services. Shortages in safe water are increasing the risk of waterborne and other communicable diseases, especially in areas housing Internally displaced persons (IDPs). If we do not act now, even more lives will be at risk. But we can only do this if we have sufficient funding to continue our health response.”

Yemen is a lost cause. We can do whatever we want to help, as long as Islam reigns there will always be more terrorism and violence.

“Diarrhoea makes you sick. Wash hands often – before you cook and eat, and after using the toilet. This is the best way to stop sickness”
The #Vanuatu  Ministry of Health and WHO are working together to communicate critical public health advice via mobile phone text messages.

This innovative use of technology targets people living in rural areas, who have greater access to mobile phones than to television, radio and newspapers.

In Vanuatu, more than 160,000 people across 22 islands are affected by Cyclone #Pam . Diarrhoeal disease is often spread through contaminated water or food, and is easily passed from person-to-person

Sometimes described as disease detectives, epidemiologists play a crucial role in every outbreak. "Our job is to find every single link. We need to find out who infected whom, how, and where" says Dr Katrina Roper, a WHO epidemiologist working in Freetown, Sierra Leone.

Today more WHO outbreak responders are working at the community level in West Africa than at any other point in the epidemic. People like Dr Roper and her colleagues will continue walking every mile, reaching every corner and doing what is needed to bring the ‪#‎Ebola‬ outbreak to an end.

We followed Dr Roper for a full day as she tracked the virus in the streets, alleys and homes of Freetown, searching every nook and cranny for signs of Ebola

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.
