Nigeria: Le Nigeria connait une flambée de choléra qui s’est aggravée depuis la semaine 33 par l’apparition d’un foyer dans l’Etat de Borno. Au total à la semaine 34 le pays connait 7 foyers dont 3 très actifs (Borno, Kebbi et Kano) qui ont rapporté pendant les deux dernières semaines cumulativement 106 cas dont 05 décès. Ces trois foyers constituent une menace importante pour les autres pays du bassin du Lac Tchad, ainsi que pour le Golf de Guinée via le Benin.
La proportion d’enfants non scolarisés dans le monde a à peine diminué ces 10 dernières années, a déclaré mercredi le Fonds des Nations Unies pour l’enfance (UNICEF).
En 2017, 11,5% des enfants âgés de 6 à 15 ans (123 millions) sont en dehors du système scolaire contre 12,8% (135 millions) en 2007.
NEW YORK, 6 September 2017 – With 11.5 per cent of school-age children – or 123 million – missing out on learning today, compared to 12.8 per cent – or 135 million – in 2007, the percentage of 6-15-year-olds who are out of school has barely decreased in the last decade, UNICEF said today.
Pervasive levels of poverty, protracted conflicts and complex humanitarian emergencies have caused this rate to stagnate, UNICEF said, calling for more investments to address the reasons that keep vulnerable children out of school.
On June 28th a suicide attack in the Kablewa IDP camp in the Diffa region killed 6 people and injured 11. The estimated 16,000 IDPs present in the camp fled and spread around several existing spontaneous sites. UNICEF participates in the coordination of the first evaluations and responses.
DAKAR/BRUSSELS, 18 July 2017 – An innovative radio education programme has begun in the Lake Chad basin as part of a comprehensive effort to support the 1.3 million children who have been displaced by the violence of the conflict with Boko Haram. The radio education programmes offer an alternative platform for the 200,000 children in crisis affected areas who are unable to access schools in the Far North of Cameroon and in the Diffa region of Niger.

In May (3rd and 23rd), Boko Haram attacked 2 schools in Boudoum and Garin Dogo and looted school feeding supplies.
The Regional Directorate for Civil Registry released the new figures on forced displacements. In 97 sites (out of 142), there are 127,299 internally displaced people, 106,146 refugees and 14,546 returnees (Nigerien living in Nigeria and displaced to Niger due to insecurity).
IOM displacement tracking matrix (DTM) Round XVI (May 2017) estimates a total of 1.74 million people are still internally displaced across the three north eastern states of Adamawa, Borno and Yobe.
An ongoing trend of returns from Cameroon is observed in Banki and Pulka with a total of over 12,000 Nigerian refugees returning since April. The influx of returnees is severely stressing limited existing services especially WASH, health and education services.
70 YEARS AND COUNTING
Seven decades ago, the world was recovering from a devastating world war. For millions of child survivors of that war, peace still encompassed a landscape of significant challenges and damaged futures. UNICEF was created to help those children – no matter who they were, no matter where they were from. The only thing that mattered for the nascent organization was achieving results for children in need.
DAKAR/ GENEVA/ABUJA, 23 June 2017 –More than 5.6 million children are at increased risk of contracting waterborne diseases, such as cholera and diarrheal infections, as the rainy season begins in conflict-affected areas of countries around Lake Chad, UNICEF warned today. The threat of disease outbreaks in Cameroon, Chad, Niger and Nigeria coincides with growing regional insecurity and increased population movements particularly in Nigeria’s northeast.
