_Lubumbashi _– After ten years of working in the centre of ‘the Triangle’, the area between Mitwaba, Manono, and Pweto, Médecins sans Frontières (MSF) is handing over its activities to the Ministry of Health (MoH) of the Democratic Republic of Congo. In the Triangle, MSF supported the referral health centre of Shamwana and seven surrounding health centres.
In Zémio, in the far southeast of the Central African Republic, MSF has partnered with the local Ministry of Health to support a 30-bed health centre with inpatient, outpatient, maternity, laboratory, and HIV/TB services, as well as run an outreach programme. The project started in 2010 in response to a large influx of Congolese refugees and internally displaced people who were forced out of their homes due to repeated violent attacks by the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA).
Every child has the right to a fair chance in life. Leaving no child behind is both a moral imperative and a strategic priority for the development of inclusive, sustainable and stable societies everywhere. In 2015, UNICEF worked with partners around the world to make that fair chance a reality.

WFP works with a wide range of national and local first responders, including community based organizations, NGOs, Red Cross and Red Crescent National Societies. 75 percent of WFP’s food assistance is delivered together with NGOs. Around 800 of WFP’s more than 1,000 NGO partners are national and local NGOs. These organizations are often the first to respond to crises and remain in the communities they serve before, after and during emergencies.
UNAIDS and PEPFAR announce dramatic reductions in new HIV infections among children in the 21 countries most affected by HIV in Africa
Concerted global efforts have led to a 60% drop in new infections among children, which has averted 1.2 million new HIV infections among children in 21 priority countries since 2009
An extensive regional scale crop failure is expected in Southern Africa following an extremely dry cropping season. Consequently, the current regional cereal deficit of 7.9 million tonnes will increase steeply and unprecedented food price movements will continue through to the next harvest season. This will aggravate the food and nutrition security, health and HIV situation in the region.
The protracted relief and recovery operation (PRRO) and the country programme (CP) are facing serious resource shortfalls. Food for training activities under the PRRO have been suspended while prevention of stunting activities under the CP have been reduced because of funding shortfalls. Therefore, WFP requires immediate contributions to meet the increasing needs of vulnerable people in Burundi.
