Enabling a better understanding of migration flows and its root causes from Nigeria towards Europe
5 October 2017
As a consequence of a drop in the number of boats reaching international waters in the Mediterranean Sea, MSF has decided to reduce its activities at sea and to end search and rescue operations of its boat Prudence. MSF will continue its presence in the Central Mediterranean with the ship Aquarius, run in coordination with SOS MEDITERRANEE, as well as continue to care for refugees, asylum seekers and migrants in need in its projects in Libya and Italy.

Highlights in August
• Between February and July 2017, IOM recorded 27,117 refugees and migrants leaving Niger towards North Africa, compared with 221,992 during the same period in 2016. This dramatic decline is largely the result of the increased security in towns along the major route between Niger and Libya. According to IOM, migration routes are currently very diffuse, covering much of the Agadez region in the north of Niger, making identification of migrants, but also the provision of assistance to them, more difficult.
ISTANBUL, Oct 3 (KUNA) -- A Turkish cruise ship in the Mediterranean rescued a wandering boat carrying 75 immigrants, carrying children and women on Tuesday.
In the region between Sicily Island of Italy and city of Pylos in Greece, 75 immigrants were rescued by Turkish company Turkon Line, ship's crew of company Ibrahim Dede, and was handed over to Greek authorities.
Turkon Line CEO, Alkin Kalkavan said that a ship carrying containers from Izmir to Algeciras Port of Spain rescued illegal immigrants.

Ladies and Gentlemen,
A year ago, States gathered in New York to reaffirm the fundamental values of solidarity and protection for people forced into exile.
They agreed to share responsibility for embedding them in practical action.
And they decided to address and resolve refugee flows through a new model that places the rights, interests and potential of refugees and of their hosts at the heart of a comprehensive response.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Realising this ambition has never been more urgent.

The ECDC Communicable Disease Threats Report (CDTR) is a weekly bulletin for epidemiologists and health professionals on active public health threats. This issue covers the period 24-30 September 2017 and includes updates on typhoid fever, West Nile fever and chikungunya.
In 2016, we increased our humanitarian efforts in some of the world’s most challenging environments. As the war in Syria entered its sixth year, our £26.6 million emergency response programme supported over three million vulnerable people living in Syria as well as refugees in three neighbouring countries. In Iraq and Yemen, as the crises continued to shatter lives, we provided life-saving aid, often in areas that other organisations are unable to access.
