Ethiopia - IOM has helped 14 unaccompanied child migrants stranded in Zambia to voluntarily return home to Ethiopia.
The children were intercepted by Zambian police while attempting to cross into South Africa and were detained for several months. After their release, they remained stranded in Zambia, unable to return home due to lack of money.
Aged between 12 and 17, the children were lured to leave Ethiopia by smugglers promising attractive work opportunities in South Africa. These promises turned out to be little more than a scam to extort money from their families.
Africa has many accomplishments in which to take pride and confidence.
Progress on many fronts is dramatic with a new sense of optimism right across the continent.
Economic growth is strong, feeding through into increased incomes and better living standards. Foreign investment is pouring in, encouraged by the energy and talent of Africa's people, rising consumer demand and improved standards of government.
SIXTY-THIRD WORLD HEALTH ASSEMBLY A63/DIV/6
Agenda item 4 19 May 2010
World Health Assembly
Geneva, Tuesday, 18 May 2010
Mr President, Director-General Dr Margaret Chan, Excellencies, ladies and gentlemen.
It is an honour and a privilege to have been invited to speak before you today. Just three years ago, you took the decision to create a World Malaria Day to be celebrated on 25 April each year.
- Malaria is the No.
A Two-Year Progress Report
Part I: Executive Summary
Every year, malaria infects more than 500 million people around the world. The burden is highest in Africa, where more than 90 percent of the world's approximately 1 million malaria deaths occur annually. Children in many parts of Africa suffer from malaria about four times each year and it is one of the leading causes of child deaths on the continent, yet the disease is completely preventable and treatable.
The impact of the disease extends far beyond the health of victims.
