MANAGUA, Feb 15 2018 (IPS) - Nicaragua’s “containment wall”, aimed at bolstering internal security, has been successful with regard to the fight against transnational crime. But its victims are migrants who are relentlessly blocked from passing through the country en route to their destination: the United States.

A situation that also represents a paradox, given that Nicaragua is the Central American country with the largest number of nationals living abroad, second only to El Salvador.

En 2017, le plus bas nombre de cas suspects de choléra annuel a été enregistré depuis le début de l’épidémie en 2010 grâce à une réponse efficace et coordonnée des acteurs, la prise en charge et un système de surveillance épidémiologique. Cette situation a permis d’atteindre une incidence de 1,12% à la fin de l’année, plus proche de l’objectif de 0,1% fixé pour fin 2018. Au cours du mois de décembre, 776 cas ont été signalés et le total annuel est de 13 681 cas suspects de choléra et 159 décès, soit une baisse respective de -67% et -64% en comparaison avec 2016.

The year 2017 recorded the lowest number of suspected annual cholera cases since the beginning of the epidemic in 2010. This favorable development was as a result of effective and coordinated response, timely clinical care and improved epidemiological surveillance system which made it possible to reach an incidence rate of 1.12% at the end of 2017, bringing the country closer to the target of 0.1% set for the end of 2018.

UN-Women’s operational response in Haiti may be of interest to the Board, due to the specific context and scope of its efforts to help bridge serious gender disparities in wellbeing, opportunities, access and control over productive resources, in a country consolidating the rule of law and undergoing a complex socioeconomic transition, against a backdrop of decades of governance and security deficits, further compounded by atypically high levels of vulnerability to natural disasters and changing weather patterns. This note aims to:

KUALA LUMPUR, 12 February 2018 - Just five months after the September earthquakes which completely destroyed 60,000 homes, more than 30,000 have been rebuilt by affected families provided with cash and technical assistance from the Mexican authorities.

In a first for Mexico, the authorities restored hope to affected communities across seven states, by issuing a total of 170,000 debit cards which allowed each family to draw up to US$8,000 to rebuild or repair their homes, in the first such experiment by the Mexican government.

report Oxfam

In 2011 some members of Oxfam Great Britain staff in Haiti acted in a way that was totally unacceptable and is the most appalling mark against the high values we set ourselves at Oxfam.  On the recent allegations of sexual misconduct in 2006 in Chad, Oxfam is shocked and dismayed. While Oxfam Great Britain cannot corroborate the information on Chad at the moment it highlights again unacceptable behaviour by a small number of people and the need for a sector-wide approach to tackle the problem.
