Guerra y hambre
Las guerras disparan hambre.
Por primera vez en 20 años el hambre vuelve a aumentar. Detrás de esta ruptura en la tendencia positiva está la mano del hombre. Concretamente la mano que dispara armas y hambre en más de 40 países. Seis de cada 10 personas con hambre en el mundo viven en zonas de conflicto. Y la amplia mayoría de niños y niñas desnutridos (122 de 155 millones) lo están por la guerra.

The discovery of the poliovirus in Nigeria last summer shocked eradication efforts. Here’s how Rotary is making sure it doesn’t happen again

For a 13-month-old boy whose family lives in northeastern Nigeria, escaping Boko Haram was only the beginning of a long, difficult journey.
In 2015, the Government of Nigeria requested World Bank support to respond to the humanitarian and development crisis in the North East of Nigeria.
The conflicts in Nigeria, Somalia, and South Sudan have led to an increasing number of displaced people who are facing food crises. There have been significant efforts to provide humanitarian aid to populations in need to prevent the occurrence of famine. However, prolonged violence in these countries, in combination with the environmental conditions continues to cause drought and exacerbate food insecurity for these populations. Security issues are preventing access to populations of concern and are blocking food and non-food aid.

ATLANTA — Millions of Nigerians no longer are at risk of a disfiguring tropical disease, thanks to a pioneering partnership between the Federal Ministry of Health and The Carter Center. The partners have eliminated lymphatic filariasis as a public health problem in two states in Nigeria, Africa’s most populous country and the seventh-largest in the world.
The largest trial of Boko Haram suspects in the history of Nigeria's ongoing fight against the terrorist group is under way at a military barracks in the north.
Under a media blackout, more than 1,600 detainees held at a military base in the central state of Niger will be tried first, followed by 651 others held at the Giwa barracks in Maiduguri.
The government says the blackout is in the interest of national security. However, human rights groups say the public is being denied knowledge of how the trials are carried out.

ROME, Oct 13 2017 (IPS) - In a world where only 8 individuals – all of them men—possess as much as half of all the planet’s wealth, and it will take women 170 years to be paid as men are*, inequality appears to be a key feature of the current economic model. Now a new study reveals that there is also a widening gap in hunger.
