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 3-9 December and includes updates on influenza, Listeria monocytogenes IVb, measles, MERS-CoV, plague, poliomyelitis, rubella, and yellow fever.
At the beginning of 2017, progress continued towards each of the Endgame Plan’s four objectives. The world has never been closer to eradicating polio, with fewer cases in fewer areas of fewer countries than at any time in the past.
(Geneva, 7 December 2017): The United Nations Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator in Ukraine, Neal Walker, today briefed UN Member States in Geneva on the humanitarian crisis in eastern Ukraine as part of the launch of the country’s Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP) for 2018. The plan outlines the key humanitarian relief and protection activities required to meet the critical needs of 2.3 million men, women and children affected by the conflict in 2018.
The Global Protection Cluster (GPC) Protection Mainstreaming Toolkit (hereafter referred to as “Toolkit”) is designed as a companion to the GPC Protection Mainstreaming Training Package (hereafter referred to as “Training Package”). The Training Package is the starting point to understand the concept and principles of “protection mainstreaming”.
OVERVIEW OF THE CRISIS
Millions of people are continuing to suffer unnecessarily in eastern Ukraine due to the entrenched political impasse and the ongoing armed conflict. Despite many attempts at a ceasefire, hostilities continue with almost daily shelling, frequent localized clashes, and rapidly escalating mine and unexploded ordnance contamination. Given the restrictions on access, just under a million crossings of the ‘contact line’ occur each month, with people forced to wait for many hours in long lines with minimal services.

OVERVIEW OF METHODOLOGY
KIEV, 24 November 2017
Many of the world’s humanitarian catastrophes are described as forgotten emergencies, but only this one is playing out relatively unnoticed on the doorstep of Europe, over an area roughly the size of Switzerland.
The frozen, low-intensity conflict in Ukraine’s Donbass region will mark a grim, four-year milestone in April. And the numbers aren't pretty: more than 10,000 killed and at least 23,000 injured.
Berlin 22nd November 2017 – International and local humanitarian agencies engaged in Ukraine joined forces in Berlin for a one-day conference to draw attention to the forgotten humanitarian crisis in the east of the country, urging decision makers to commit to tangible improvements to the situation in eastern Ukraine.
• As winter approaches, continued hostilities and indicators of deliberate targeting of strategic pipelines and water treatment facilities in South Donbass put the lives of almost 1.2million people, including 220,000 children, at risk.
• To ensure continued access to learning in the conflict-affected area, UNICEF provided education and early childhood kits to over 13,000 children in the non-government controlled areas.

Education is lifesaving. Education is crucial for both the protection and healthy development of girls and boys affected by crises. It can rebuild their lives; restore their sense of normality and safety, and provide them with important life skills. It helps children to be self-sufficient, to be heard, and to have more influence on issues that affect them. It is also one of the best tools to invest in their long-term future, and in the peace, stability and economic growth of their countries.
