#Malawi‬  is making progress in its fight against child mortality by moving critical health services closer to families who live in remote, rural areas.

These diseases accounted for 45% of deaths among children under 5 years of age in Malawi in 2012 . Here's the story:

#BreastCancerAwarenessMonth : Julia Myburgh from Cape Town, South Africa, was 30 years old when her husband and 4 1/2 year old son were killed in an automobile crash. One year later, Julia was diagnosed with stage 3 #breastcancer . She was alone and devastated. The members of her church provided a support system for her. One friend in particular stood by her, and took her to all of her treatments and doctor appointments. They eventually got married. Julia had had a radical mastectomy, chemo and 5 years of tamoxifen, but somehow, she was able to conceive and give birth to a beautiful son Ruan (pictured here).

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we are sharing brief stories from some women living with breast #cancer
If you live with breast cancer, or know someone with breast cancer, tell us your story.

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:
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.

The fight against #tuberculosis‬  is paying off, with this year’s death rate nearly half of what it was in 1990. Nevertheless, 1.5 million people died from #TB  in 2014. Most of these deaths could have been prevented.
To reduce TB’s overall burden, detection and treatment gaps need to be closed, funding shortfalls filled and new diagnostics, drugs and vaccines developed. Read more in our new Global tuberculosis report 2015:

Jumping head first from high altitudes is 90-year old Helmut Wirz's passion. The retired pharmacist discovered bungee-jumping at the age of 75. "When I’m standing up there, I feel completely calm“, he says, despite the fact that he is only secured by a rubber - band fixed to his legs. Helmut held the record as the oldest bungee jumper in the world for many years and is not planning to switch to playing chess or bowling in the #YearsAhead .

Post your images (or someone you know of) here celebrating older age and challenging common misconceptions about ageing, using the hashtag #YearsAhead, and we might feature you on the WHO social media accounts!
