As thousands of desperate men, women and children flee conflicts and natural disasters in search of a place of refuge, some countries are debating whether to accept or reject asylum seekers. But Uganda has opened its doors to refugees in record numbers.
On 9 and 10 December the international community will celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The creation of these landmark documents, inextricably linked in sentiment as well as time, was guided by the “never again” conviction in the aftermath of World War II.
On the 23 November 2018, the State Ministry of Health was notified of a suspected case of Ebola at the Sekure Payam, Nzara County. The suspect is a 25 years old farmer, who resides at “Hai Network” but travelled to Bangadi in the Democratic Republic of Congo on the 16 November 2018. He felt unwell on the 18 November 2018 with complains of fever, joint pain, vomiting of blood and diarrhoea.

The number of people facing severe hunger in the world continues to rise, reaching 124 million people across 51 countries. Conflict and extreme climate events remain the main drivers behind severe food crises. Often occurring simultaneously, all dimensions of food security – food availability, access and utilization – are further undermined.

Global trends and challenges
More than 1 per cent of people across the planet right now are caught up in major humanitarian crises. The international humanitarian system is more effective than ever at meeting their needs – but global trends including poverty, population growth and climate change are leaving more people than ever vulnerable to the devastating impacts of conflicts and disasters.
