Burkina Faso : Apprendre aux mères à détecter la malnutrition
"Je pensais que la malnutrition était causée par les grossesses à un jeune âge", a déclaré Zalissa.
Mais maintenant, grâce aux formations qui ont commencé en juin 2016 dans les communautés dans la région du Centre du Burkina Faso - Yako et Boussé - Zalissa et près de 55 000 autres mères ont appris ce qu'est la malnutrition et comment la détecter.
The agricultural production is expected to be overall average to above-average in West Africa and the Sahel.
Fodder deficits persist in the extreme North-East of Chad, the pastoral zone of Niger, Northern Senegal and the agro-pastoral zone of Mauritania.
The Fall Armyworm continues to spread in the region, the situation remains very worrying.
This Weekly Bulletin focuses on selected acute public health emergencies occurring in the WHO African Region. The WHO Health Emergencies Programme is currently monitoring 46 events in the region. This week’s edition covers key ongoing events, including:
Plague in Madagascar
Marburg virus disease in Uganda
Cholera in Tanzania
Cholera in north-east Nigeria
Necrotizing cellulitis/fasciitis in São Tomé and Príncipe
Humanitarian crisis in South Sudan.
Le samedi 28 octobre 2017, la Croix-Rouge burkinabè a lancé une campagne destinée à apporter une assistance alimentaire aux populations vulnérables de la commune de Tinakof (75 Km de Gôrôm-Gôrôm). Cette activité de distribution réalisée avec le soutien de la Fédération Internationale de la Croix-Rouge et du Croissant-Rouge (FICR) va concerner tous les 17 villages de la commune.
The benchmark US wheat price declined in October mostly because of higher supply prospects while maize quotations firmed due to rain-induced harvest delays. International rice prices strengthened in October, mainly reflecting seasonally tight Japonica and fragrant supplies.
This report examines three examples of crisis modifiers, a set of innovative risk financing options, in the Sahel and examines their use as a potential solution for a more flexible aid system. This could address the gap created by the traditional division between humanitarian aid and long-term development, in which pre-planned development programmes do not have the flexibility to quickly reallocate funding to address spikes in need, and humanitarian organisations are largely confined to funding instruments that prevent longer-term engagement in vulnerability reduction.
GENDER INEQUALITY AND FINANCIAL EXCLUSION
Women and girls in West Africa face some of the highest rates of gender inequality and financial exclusion in the world.1 Caused by entrenched structural social belief systems, values and cultural norms and practices, as well as a gap between the political will and the reality of the lives of women and girls in the region—these injustices are undeniably connected, resulting in a cycle of poverty that can affect entire families for generations.
As of 31 October, United Nations-coordinated appeals and refugee response plans within the Global Humanitarian Overview (GHO) require US$24.1 billion to meet the humanitarian needs of 105.1 million particularly vulnerable people of an estimated 145 million crisis-affected people in 39 countries. The appeals are funded at $11.8 billion, leaving a shortfall of $12.3 billion. This is $1.5 billion less than the gap reported at the end of September 2017.
WMO report highlights impacts on human safety, well-being and environment
6 November 2017 (WMO) - It is very likely that 2017 will be one of the three hottest years on record, with many high-impact events including catastrophic hurricanes and floods, debilitating heatwaves and drought. Long-term indicators of climate change such as increasing carbon dioxide concentrations, sea level rise and ocean acidification continue unabated. Arctic sea ice coverage remains below average and previously stable Antarctic sea ice extent was at or near a record low.
Flow Monitoring Points (FMPs) allow IOM to quantify and qualify migration flows, trends and routes et entry, transit or exit points. IOM has been carrying out flow monitoring of migrants at two points in the Agadez region of Niger. In September 2017 DTM identified 2,541 incoming and 4,972 outgoing migrants. This month, the continued closure of the border between Niger and Libya made more difficult, and in some cases prevented, movements of passengers across the border between Niger and Libya.
Burkina Faso has been experiencing an epidemic of dengue fever since week 31 of 2017 (week ending on 6 August). WHO officially declared the outbreak on 28 September 2017. Unlike the previous occurrence in 2016, several serotypes of dengue have been detected and the number of cases quickly exceeded past seasonal outbreaks.
