Le contexte humanitaire au Burundi s'est légèrement amélioré depuis le début de 2018 mais la situation reste cependant précaire notamment avec un niveau élevé de vulnérabilité. Le nombre de personnes en insécurité alimentaire est passé de 2,6 millions en juillet 2017 à 1,67 million en avril 2018 (15% de la population). Des facteurs climatiques favorables et par conséquence une amélioration de l’accès à l’alimentation sont les principaux facteurs de cette amélioration.

Fifty-nine access incidents were reported in June, with the majority (66 per cent) occurring in Unity, Western Bahr el Ghazal, Central Equatoria and Jonglei. 68 per cent of the organizations reporting being affected are INGOs and over recent months, incidents involving violence against aid workers and assets have remained the majority, at around 60 per cent. Again this month, aid operations in Western Bahr el Ghazal have continued to be impeded by blockages and bureaucratic challenges – a situation which has persisted since the start of 2018.

Today MSF runs 468 projects in 71 countries. Over the years, our medical humanitarian organisation has expanded from a small group of doctors and journalists to a global movement with almost 40,000 staff. However, after 47 years of operations, our fundamental mission and values remain unchanged: to provide essential medical care for those who need it most, regardless of race, religion or political affiliation.

Our operations in Palestine are not as large as those in some other countries, however, they have always been significant.

P-au-P, 18 juil. 2018 [AlterPresse] --- Des organisations de droits humains nationales et internationales continuent de réclamer de l’Organisation des Nations Unies (Onu) une indemnisation significative des victimes du choléra en Haïti.

L’Onu semblerait uniquement favoriser des solutions communautaires pour les victimes sans un plan d’action pour explorer les paiements individuels, critiquent-elles, dans une lettre en date du 16 juillet, adressée au secrétaire général des Nations Unies, Antonio Guterres.
