The outbreak of violence in the Kasai region of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) in March 2017 triggered the internal displacement of some 1.4 million persons and the flight of over 35,000 refugees into Lunda Norte Province, Angola.
The warning came from the liaison officer to World Health Organisation in the region, Armando Aspirante.
Aspirante told Angop that several protection measures are being implemented along the border area, the communes of Chiluange and Cassai Sul share with the DRC.
The official said that there are skilled surveillance teams in both communes and well equipped health facilities to deal with eventual cases of disease.

31 August 2018, Luanda – Angola has officially presented its National Strategy for Disaster Risk Reduction to an eager audience in the capital Luanda.
In 2016, 77,000 people in Southern Angola were in IPC Phase 3 (Crisis) and 272,500 people in IPC Phase 4 (Emergency), translating to 37% and 21% of the assessed area’s population respectively (and totalling 58%). Lack of potable water contributed to the situation. At the national level, in 2016 about 38% of population suffered from chronic malnutrition. In south-central Bie Province, this figure surpassed 50%. The country is experiencing financial difficulties and lack of funding is a major constraint in expanding VAA to the whole country.
This was said Thursday by the chief of Staff of the Military Region Center, Brigadier João Kaluapa.
Kaluapa was speaking at the opening ceremony of the 22nd Methodological Meeting of FAA Engineering and Infrastructure Specialists.
He also said that FAA demining experts will continue to contribute to the process of building and rebuilding bridges and roads throughout the Central Military Region.
The move is intended to promote the safe free movement of people and goods.

Water is vital for the life of refugees and is used for human consumption, hygiene for clothes washing, showers and for agriculture. Water provision is part of the group of Basic Needs and Essential Services that is implemented by the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) and is included into the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) cluster of the Comprehensive Refugees Response Framework (CRRF). As such, water is always prioritised at the onset of the emergency phase of any humanitarian response as well as during the search for durable solutions.
