BANGUI, 25 juillet 2014 (AFP) - Des guérillas affaiblies mais toujours dangereuses, des corps expéditionnaires d'armées étrangères, des braconniers d'ivoire, des trafiquants de minerais: l'extrême Sud-Est centrafricain, coincé entre Soudan du Sud et République démocratique du Congo, est une zone de non droit, dans un pays en totale dérive.

South Sudan Crisis — Regional Impact Situation Report #28 23 July 2014

preview

Highlights

  • WFP urgently requires US$107 million for the next six months to meet the needs of all refugees in Uganda, Kenya, Ethiopia and Sudan.

  • The resource situation remains critical in all the four countries. Shortfalls may require WFP to implement ration cuts and stop selected activities such as school meals and blanket supplementary feeding, in order to prioritize assistance for new arrivals. This will have a negative impact on the nutrition situation of beneficiaries.

Strong Girls, Powerful Women: Program Planning and Design for Adolescent Girls in Humanitarian Settings

In most countries, adolescent girls face disadvantages compared to their male peers in family roles, divisions of labor, and access to resources because they are female and young. Even before conflicts erupt or natural disasters occur, adolescent girls’ transition from childhood to adulthood is shaped by rigid expectations that have negative implications for their access to health services, schooling, and other life-shaping opportunities.

New School Removes Barrier To Learning For Uganda's Children

Baltimore, MD (IOCC) — The one-room, red-brick village school near the shores of Lake Victoria in Butembe, Uganda, fills quickly each morning as hundreds of children, barefoot and humbly dressed, file in and sit shoulder to shoulder on the packed earth floor to receive their lessons. One teacher provides instruction for 500 students from kindergarten to eighth grade in two shifts, with children waiting outside for their class to be called. There are no desks, chairs or books, only a solitary chalkboard at one end of the room used by the teacher to instruct them in reading and math.

Report
UNAIDS

With the AIDS epidemic having entered its fourth decade, and given the wider availability of life-saving treatment, there is now a growing number of people who have been living with HIV for 20 years or more.

According to a panel discussion that took place on 22 July at AIDS 2014, much more must be done to include the needs and concerns of both groups in a comprehensive AIDS response.
