There's a New Effective Vaccine to Combat Rotavirus
Description: Diarrhea is still one of the main killers in developing countries. Rotavirus is the main agent that causes severe gastroenteritis. It can very quickly lead to fatal dehydration, especially among very young children. Together with the Niger Ministry of Health, the Doctors Without Borders innovation unit and Epicentre, our epidemiological research center set up a clinical trial in order to test a new oral vaccine against rotavirus. The initial results of this clinical trial have proven that the vaccine is effective in Niger, drastically reducing cases of diarrhea and their severity among the children who have received the vaccine. It is essential to convince health ministries to include this new oral vaccine in their vaccination programs: http://www.doctorswithoutborders.org/article/new-cheaper-and-heat-stable-rotavirus-vaccine-could-prevent-thousands-childhood-deaths Follow our tech and innovation twitter accounts! @MSF_innovation and @MSFSci

Niger: Gas project uplifts refugees lives
Description: UNHCR is working with a local company in Niger to provide refugees with cooking gas. The project is empowering refugees and host communities who struggled to find the increasingly scarce resource of firewood. Africa Shares is a forum that highlights refugees as assets to the communities that host them. From the 14 to 16 March, UNHCR will host the event in Geneva, where refugees' skills in artistry, innovation and entrepreneurship will be on display. Eight projects from seven countries will be exhibited: Instant Network Schools (Kenya), Malian refugee artisans (Burkina Faso), We Love Reading (Ethiopia), energy-saving fuel project (Rwanda), One Love project (Zimbabwe), Microsoft internet connectivity (Malawi), urbanisation and subsidised gas initiatives (Niger). Africa Shares shows that innovation is wide-spread across the continent, and that refugees and displaced communities are the drivers of innovation. Through it, they are translating challenges into opportunities and success stories.

IOM Niger Promotes Safe Migration in Agadez
Description: In the middle of the desert in Agadez, a strategic crossroad for migrants, IOM staff is assisting migrants coming from Liberia, Cameroon, Gambia, Guinea, Senegal, Nigeria and other West African countries. The migrants’ journeys before reaching the center are often long and traumatizing. Among them there are many who have been victims of trafficking, exploitation or abuse at the hands of unscrupulous smugglers. The video above was made in support of IOM Niger's information campaign implemented in 2016. The aim of the campaign was to inform potential and transiting migrants about safer alternatives to irregular migration, and about the risks and dangers of trafficking and smuggling.

Most have settled in the Diffa region, along the country’s main road, Route 1. But cross-border attacks by militants, along with a lack of basic necessities, has left people vulnerable.

The colours of life: Detecting malnutrition in Niger
Description: The Alliance For International Medical Action (ALIMA) is one of the European Commission’s main humanitarian partners in the fight against under-nutrition in the Sahel. With an easy-to-use color-coded bracelet, the organisation is helping mothers in Niger to test their children for malnutrition in order to reduce the number of severely malnourished children arriving at hospitals in critical conditions. The medical humanitarian organisation has so far trained nearly 50 000 mothers in the country. Rahina, a young mother from the Zinder region of Niger, is one of the participants in the training on malnutrition detection organised by ALIMA. Thanks to this training, she found out that her baby was malnourished, and will now receive the help she needs to treat his condition.
