OMS : Depresión – Hablemos
Description: La depresión afecta a personas de todas las edades y condiciones sociales y de todos los países. Provoca angustia mental y afecta a la capacidad de las personas para llevar a cabo incluso las tareas cotidianas más simples, lo que tiene en ocasiones efectos nefastos sobre las relaciones con la familia y los amigos. La depresión también es la principal causa mundial de discapacidad. Este breve vídeo destaca los argumentos de salud pública y de carácter económico en favor de garantizar la disponibilidad del tratamiento para la depresión a todo aquel que lo necesite. El vídeo forma parte de la campaña de un año de duración «Hablemos de la depresión» que la Organización Mundial de la Salud lanzó el 10 de octubre de 2016.

WHO: Mothers, babies and HIV: a story of INSPIRE
Description: The World Health Organization, with funding from the Canadian Government, implemented the INSPIRE project between 2011-2016. The project enrolled thousands of pregnant women accessing HIV treatment in Malawi, Nigeria and Zimbabwe. It investigated different ways to improve their retention in treatment.

WHO: How to give a safe injection?
Description: All of us, at some point in our lives, will have an injection to retain or restore good health. But sometimes injections that are intended to promote health do the opposite. This happens when they are given in an unsafe way - using the same needle or syringe to give injections to more than one person. Practices like this can lead to the transmission of life-threatening infections. The training of health care workers on the right way to deliver therapeutic or medical injections is vital and should provide information on the different types of safety engineered syringes including syringes with reuse prevention (RUP) and sharp injury protection (SIP) features. Education is also necessary to explain the steps involve in giving a safe injection. This WHO video outlines the 5 different types of safety engineered syringes and the 7 steps to giving a safe injection. It can be used in any health care education and training sessions.

WHO: The SDG Health Price Tag: What will a healthier world cost?
Description: Investments to achieve the health targets in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) could prevent 97 million premature deaths globally between now and 2030, and add as much as 8.4 years of life expectancy in some countries. The SDG Health Price Tag estimates the costs and benefits of progressively expanding health services in order to reach 16 SDG health targets in 67 low- and middle-income countries that account for 75% of the world’s population. The analysis shows that most countries can afford the investments needed, but the poorest nations will continue to need assistance to reach the targets.

WHO: Making injections safe, we all have a part to play
Description: All of us, at some point in our lives, will have an injection to retain or restore good health. But sometimes injections that are intended to promote health do the opposite. This happens when they are given in an unsafe way - using the same needle or syringe to give injections to more than one person. Practices like this can lead to the transmission of life-threatening infections. Patients and communities can play their part in safe injections by being aware of the risks of unsafe injections, the benefits of taking medicines by mouth and how to ask health care providers to consider alternatives to injections and where they are necessary, ensure that injections are delivered with a syringe and needle opened form new packets. This WHO animated video provides key messages as well as a call to action to patients and communities to play their part in making injections safe.

WHO: We will end Tuberculosis - Global Ministerial Conference on TB
Description: Tuberculosis (TB) is the leading infectious killer in the world claiming 5,000 lives a day, and one of the top 10 causes of death worldwide. TB is preventable and curable, however, actions and investments fall far short of what is needed to end this epidemic. To drive down the number of TB deaths and suffering, we need more political commitment, multisectoral action, more investments and research. This November, Ministers and other global leaders from across the world, will meet in Moscow to commit to end the global TB epidemic in line with the targets set by the WHO End TB Strategy and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
