EWARN in humanitarian emergencies
As many as seven countries– Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Syria in the WHO Eastern Mediterranean Region have established an early warning system for disease outbreaks with a view to early detecting and rapidly investigating any public health event of potential concern.

L’OMS appuie la formation de six équipes pour les EDS
Dans le cadre de la riposte à l’épidémie de la maladie à virus Ébola actuellement en cours dans la Province du nord Kivu en RDC, les résistances com- munautaires contre les enter- rement dignes et sécurisés (EDS) sont fréquentes.

Cameroon: Two confirmed cases were reported from the Extreme North Region for the first time since the begining of the outbreak. The risk of propagation to Chad remains significant.

Clarifying the roles of the African Union (AU) and subregional organisations is a central element of the AU reforms. It is key in terms of managing expectations about what the AU can or cannot do, as well as coordinating Africa’s responses to avoid duplication of efforts. But this issue is also divisive, and it is unclear whether AU member states will reach a concrete decision on a division of labour at the upcoming extraordinary summit on reforms in Addis Ababa on 17 November.
Many parts of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) are experiencing prolonged conflict and poverty, contributing to population displacement, chronic food insecurity and restricted livelihood activities. Violence and insecurity continue to drive urgent food and relief needs in the DRC’s greater Kasaï region as well as Ituri, North Kivu, South Kivu and Tanganyika provinces, with a recent Ebola outbreak in Ituri and North Kivu further complicating the humanitarian situation.
