Près de 25 millions de personnes en situation d'insécurité alimentaire au Sahel

Report
IRIN

DAKAR, 30 octobre 2014 (IRIN) - Les taux d'insécurité alimentaire et de malnutrition se détériorent au Sahel. Selon le bureau de la coordination des affaires humanitaires des Nations Unies (OCHA), cela se doit en partie au conflit et à l'instabilité en République centrafricaine (RCA), dans le nord du Mali et dans le nord-est du Nigeria.

Le nombre de personnes en situation d'insécurité alimentaire a augmenté de près de cinq millions depuis le début de l'année, soit un total de 24,7 millions - plus du double par rapport à 2013, a estimé OCHA.

Ebola Tests Regional Cooperation in West Africa

On October 23, the West African nation of Mali announced its first case of Ebola—a two-year-old girl, who tragically died the following day. The World Health Organization (WHO) considers the case an emergency because the girl’s journey from Guinea to Mali “presented multiple opportunities for exposures—including high-risk exposures—involving many people.” Malian authorities are currently monitoring 43 people, including ten medical workers, for symptoms of the virus.

The Ivory Coast, currently free of the Ebola epidemic ravaging its neighbours, has launched a hunt for a Guinean health worker who may have fled his home country after possibly catching the disease.
