A. SITUATION ANALYSIS
Description of the disaster
Hepatitis E virus is probably the leading cause of viral hepatitis in the world. The global burden of Morbidity Study (WHO, 2010) estimated that at least 20.1 million people are infected globally by the virus genotypes 1 and 2 every year, out of which only 3.4 million people reported the disease, resulting in 70,000 deaths and 3,000 new-borns baby deaths.
DAKAR – The Executive Director of the World Food Programme (WFP), David Beasley, is today travelling to West Africa, where more than five million people in six countries of the Sahel region – Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali, Mauritania, Niger and Senegal - could go hungry this year.
Plus de cent Soudanais arrêtés au Niger risquent de subir de graves abus, notamment d'être détenus de façon illégale et dans des conditions très éprouvantes et soumis à la torture et à d'autres formes de mauvais traitements, souvent à des fins d'extorsion, à la suite de leur renvoi en Libye la semaine dernière, a déclaré Amnesty International.
