Landmark Malaria Vaccine Launched in Kenya



|| Wednesday: September 18: 2019 || ά. The World Health Organisation:WHO has congratulated the Government of Kenya for launching the world’s first Malaria vaccine last week in Homa Bay County, western Kenya. The Malaria vaccine pilot programme is now fully underway in Africa, as Kenya joins Ghana and Malawi to introduce the landmark vaccine as a tool against a disease, that continues to affect millions of children in Africa.

The vaccine, known as RTSS, will be available to children from six months of age in selected areas of the country in a phased pilot introduction. It is the first and only vaccine to, significantly, reduce Malaria in children, including, life-threatening form of the disease. Malaria claims the life of one child every two minutes. The disease is a leading killer of children younger than five years in Kenya.

“Africa has witnessed a recent surge in the number of Malaria cases and deaths. This threatens the gains in the fight against Malaria made in the past two decades.” said Dr Matshidiso Moeti, WHO Regional Director for Africa. “The ongoing pilots will provide the key information and data to inform a WHO policy on the broader use of the vaccine in sub-saharan Africa. If, introduced widely, the vaccine has the potential to save tens of thousands of lives.”

Distinguished health officials, community leaders and health advocates gathered in Homa Bay County, one of eight counties in Kenya, where the vaccine will be introduced in selected areas, to mark this historic moment with declarations of support for the promising new Malaria prevention tool and to demonstrate a ceremonial first vaccination of a six-month-old child.

Speaking at the event, WHO Representative to Kenya Dr Rudi Eggers, said, “Vaccines are powerful tools, that, effectively, reach and better protect the health of children, who, may not, have immediate access to the doctors, nurses and health facilities they need to save them when severe illness comes. This is a day to celebrate as we begin to learn more about what this vaccine can do to change the trajectory of Malaria through childhood vaccination.”

Thirty years in the making, the vaccine is a complementary Malaria control tool, to be added to the core package of WHO-recommended measures for Malaria prevention, including, the routine use of insecticide-treated bed nets, indoor spraying with insecticides and timely access to Malaria testing and treatment.

Kenyan Ministry of Health, through the National Vaccines and Immunisation Programme, is leading the phased vaccine introduction in areas of high Malaria transmission, where the vaccine can have the greatest impact.

The project aims to vaccinate about 120,000 children every year in Kenya across the selected introduction areas, including, Homa Bay, Kisumu, Migori, Siaya, Busia, Bungoma, Vihiga and Kakamega counties. Within the eight counties, some sub-counties will introduce the vaccine into immunisation schedules while others are expected to introduce the vaccine later.

The WHO-co-ordinated pilot programme is a collaboration with the ministries of health in Ghana, Kenya and Malawi and a range of in-country and international partners, including, PATH, a non-profit organisation and GSK, the vaccine developer and manufacturer, which is donating up to 10 million vaccine doses for this pilot.

Financing for the pilot programme has been mobilised through an unprecedented collaboration among three key global health funding bodies: Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance; the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria; and Unitaid.

What Is Happening with Ebola in the Democratic Republic of the Congo: How Long Will It Keep on Going: 1,646 Deaths Were Reported While Overall Case Fatality Ratio 68%: That’s a Huge Number of Human Beings Who Have Lost Their Lives But the World Seems to Have Forgotten About This Part of the World and Its Humanity



|| Sunday: July 14: 2019 || ά. The outbreak of Ebola Virus Disease:EVD in North Kivu and Ituri provinces in the Democratic Republic of the Congo continues with a similar transmission intensity to the previous week. While the number of new cases continues to ease in former hotspots, such as, Butembo, Katwa and Mandima health zones, there has been an increase in cases in Beni and a high incidence of cases continues in parts of Mabalako Health Zone.

In addition to these re-emerging hotspots, there are a large number of people with confirmed and probable infections moving to other health zones, with the greatest number coming from Beni Health Zone. The movement of cases causes the outbreak to spread to new health zones and re-emerge in health zones with previously controlled infections. Overall, this underscores the importance of robust mechanisms for listing and following up contacts and understanding the motivations for peoples’ decisions to move.

After the first reported case in the Ariwara Health Zone on June 30, no new cases has been observed in that health zone. A response team, deployed to that zone, continues to identify contacts, engage the community and vaccinate individuals at risk. Response personnel from the bordering countries of Uganda and South Sudan continue to support operational readiness activities. Resources are being dedicated to monitoring the Uganda-Democratic Republic of the Congo border in that area.

In the 21 days from June 19 through July 09, 72 health areas within 22 health zones reported new cases, representing 11% of the 664 health areas within North Kivu and Ituri provinces. During this period, a total of 247 confirmed cases were reported, the majority of which were from the health zones of Beni, 41%, n=101, Mabalako, 19%, n=48, Lubero, 06%, n=16 and Mandima, 05%, n=13. As of July 09, a total of 2437 EVD cases, including, 2,343 confirmed and 94 probable cases, were reported.

A total of 1,646 deaths were reported, overall case fatality ratio 68%, including, 1,552 deaths among confirmed cases. Of the 2,437 confirmed and probable cases with known age and sex, 57%, 1,384 were female and 29%, 704 were children aged less than 18 years.

Cases continue to increase among health workers, with the cumulative number infected rising to 132, 05% of total cases. Of the 128 health workers with information available, the greatest proportion is among health workers at health posts, 20%, n = 26 and private health facilities, 35%, n = 45. The majority, 68%, n = 87 of health worker infections were among nurses.

No new EVD cases or deaths has been reported in the Republic of Uganda since the previous EVD Disease Outbreak News publication on June 13. As of July 03, 108 contacts exposed to those cases were identified and they all completed the 21-day follow-up period. All contacts were asymptomatic.

Arua district, located in the north-western part of Uganda near the Uganda-Democratic Republic of the Congo border, is currently stepping up its response readiness to prevent imported cases of Ebola, following the case, whose patient died on June 30 in Ariwara Health Zone in neighbouring Democratic Republic of the Congo, located eight kilometres from the Uganda border.

This case is known to have over 200 contacts, some of whom are in the communities bordering the Arua district. As of July 09, two suspected cases in the Arua district were reported and both tested negative. The cumulative number of individuals vaccinated in Arua district is 811 out of 1,092 targeted front line and healthcare workers.:::ω.

Major Cholera Vaccination Campaign Begins in North Kivu in the Democratic Republic of the Congo


|| Thursday: May 30: 2019 || ά. More than 800,000 people will be immunised against Cholera in North Kivu in the Eastern part of the Democratic Republic of the Congo:DRC, following the launch of a major vaccination campaign. The campaign will be implemented by the DRC Ministry of Health with support from the World Health Organization:WHO and its partners and it is funded by Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance.

A total of 835,183 people in Binza, Goma, Kayina, Karisimbi, Kibirizi, Kirotshe and Rutshuru areas will be vaccinated by June 01. The campaign will administer the first of two doses of Oral Cholera Vaccine:OCV to people in these areas. Following successful implementation, a campaign to administer the second dose will take place at a later stage to provide full protection against Cholera. Over 10,000 cases of Cholera have been reported in the country, since, January 2019, leading to more than 240 deaths.

In addition, over 80,000 suspected cases of measles have led to over 1,400 deaths so far this year while a case of circulating vaccine-derived poliovirus type two was reported in Kasai province earlier this month.

“The DRC is confronted with an unprecedented combination of deadly epidemics.” said Dr Seth Berkley, CEO of Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance. “While the Ebola outbreak continues to cause untold misery in the East, Measles and Cholera epidemics are claiming the lives of thousands of people throughout the country. That’s why we are stepping up our response, through this Cholera vaccination campaign, through on-going measles vaccinations in health zones, affected by measles outbreaks, as well as, through our continued support for Ebola vaccinations in both the DRC and neighbouring countries. We can not allow this needless suffering to continue.”

“Cholera is a preventable disease. Vaccinating people at risk in the most exposed health zones in North Kivu against Cholera is a massive contribution and will protect hundreds of thousands of people against the disease and raise population immunity levels in these areas.” said Dr Deo Nshimirimana, Acting WHO Representative in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. ‘’WHO is working with national and provincial authorities and all partners to make sure that people, targeted in these health areas, will be reached with the vaccine.”

The 835,183 doses of Oral Cholera Vaccine:OCV were taken from the global cholera vaccine stockpile, which is fully funded by Gavi. Gavi is, also, supporting operational costs for the campaign. The use of the stockpile for outbreak response is managed by the International Coordinating Group:ICG, which features representatives from WHO, UNICEF, IFRC and MSF.

Since the stockpile was launched in 2013 millions of doses of OCV have helped tackle outbreaks across the globe. In the fifteen years between 1997 and 2012, just 01.5 million doses of Oral Cholera Vaccine were used worldwide. In 2018 alone, the stockpile provided 17 million of doses to 22 different countries. Since the beginning of 2019, more than six million doses have, already, been shipped to respond to outbreaks or address endemic Cholera in countries, including, Mozambique, Nigeria, Somalia and Zimbabwe.

More than two million people have, also, been vaccinated in the DRC in 72 health zones as part of a measles outbreak response funded by Gavi through the Measles and Rubella Initiative:MRI. A further 400,000 people are expected to be vaccinated as part of this response. Gavi will, also, be funding a measles campaign for 18 million children aged six months-59 months, starting later in the year. This will be additional to Gavi's support for the government’s efforts to strengthen routine immunisation, which is the best long-term solution against measles outbreaks.

About Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance: Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance is a public-private partnership committed to saving children's lives and protecting people's health by increasing equitable use of vaccines in lower-income countries. The Vaccine Alliance brings together developing country and donor governments, the World Health Organisation, UNICEF, the World Bank, the vaccine industry, technical agencies, civil society, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and other private sector partners. Gavi uses innovative finance mechanisms to secure sustainable funding and adequate supply of quality vaccines. Since 2,000, Gavi has contributed to the immunisation of 700 million children and the prevention of 10 million future deaths..:::ω.

The Round Table About Shared Water Resource: Diplomacy at the Service of States in West Africa











|| February 18: 2019: University of Geneva News || ά. The Gambia, Guinea Bissau, Mauritania and Senegal initiate a discussion for the joint management of a shared aquifer system essential to the economic and social development of this region of 24 million people. The four States, sharing the Senegalo-Mauritanian aquifer basin met in Geneva on February 06-07 for a roundtable on the theme of the trans-boundary collaboration on this strategic water resource currently threated by salinisation, pollution and climate change.

Jointly organised by the Geneva Water Hub, a centre, specialised in hydro-diplomacy, attached to the University of Geneva and the Secretariat of the Convention on the Protection and Use of Transboundary Watercourses and International Lakes, hosted by UNECE, this diplomatic meeting allowed representatives of water ministries of the four countries to have a first exchange on the state of knowledge of this complex system of aquifers, on which, largely, depends the water supply of major cities, such as, Dakar or Bissau.

With an area of approximately 350,000 km2, the Senegalo-Mauritanian aquifer basin is the largest basin in the Atlantic margin of North-West Africa. The groundwater it contains is a strategic resource for the four aquifer States, The Gambia, Guinea Bissau, Mauritania and Senegal, on whom populations, which number more than 24 million people in total, depend to a large extent for their access to drinking water and various sectoral uses.

Some important cities in the region, such as, Bissau and Dakar, rely on it for an essential part of their water supply. However, States face several challenges, such as, the risks, associated with salinisation, various sources of pollution or the impact of climate change on the variability of precipitations, necessary for groundwater recharge. This situation is all the more worrying in the absence of a co-operation framework at regional level and in view of the need to develop knowledge of these aquifer systems. 

At the roundtable on trans-boundary collaboration on the Senegalo-Mauritanian aquifer system brought together the four aquifer States and the main trans-boundary basin organisations of the region: the Senegal River Basin Development Organisation and the Gambia River Development Organisation. The participation of the latter allowed the exploration of institutional innovation avenues for their potential involvement in groundwater management in addition to their surface water management mandate.

The roundtable provided a platform for exchanges between the four States and basin organisations, with active contributions from experts and technical and financial partners. It facilitated an update on the current knowledge of the aquifer system, an exchange on its related management issues and the identification of possible options for co-operation to promote the sustainable management and use of the aquifer.

In particular, based on the Policy Guidance Note on the Benefits of Trans-boundary Water Co-operation, developed under the Water Convention, States identified a wide range of benefits, that enhanced co-operation on the Senegalo-Mauritanian basin could generate, both in terms of economic, social and environmental benefits, e.g, the possible increase of revenues in small irrigated agricultural projects and the reduction of production and operating costs for drinking water supply, as well as, benefits from regional economic integration and peace and security, e.g, regional stability conducive to investments and combatting rural depopulation.

Among the main recommendations of the meeting, the States agreed to set up a Working Group to carry out a comprehensive inventory of the existing knowledge of the basin and to outline a joint project for resilient resource governance for the sustainable and peaceful development of the region. This project could be supported by a consortium of partners, including, the technical and financial partners, that contributed to the roundtable: AfDB, BGR, GWH, IAEA, IGRAC, SDC, State of Geneva, UNECE and UNESCO.

The roundtable was jointly organised by the Secretariat of the Convention on the Protection and Use of Trans-boundary Watercourses and International Lakes, Water Convention. The theme of this roundtable is in line with the recommendations of the Panel, that the Geneva Water Hub contributes to implement and, which, specifically, stresses the importance to bolster trans-boundary and intersectoral co-operation on groundwater.

This roundtable is, also, part of the activities under the Water Convention, which has the mandate to strengthen co-operation through the development of agreements and arrangements for the joint management of trans-boundary waters, both surface and groundwater. Senegal’s recent accession to the Water Convention and the interest shown by the other riparian States in acceding to the Convention reflect the increased importance of the Water Convention as a universal instrument of hydro-diplomacy.:::ω.

The World Health Organisation Appeals for $ 43.5 Million Needed to Provide Life-saving Health aid in Libya in 2019



|| February 11: 2019 || ά. The World Health Organisation and its health partners are appealing for US$43.5 million to provide life-saving interventions for 388,000 people inside Libya, affected by on-going conflict. A health service availability and readiness assessment by WHO and the Ministry of Health in 2017 showed that 17.5% of hospitals, 20% of primary health care facilities and 18 specialised hospitals were, partially, damaged or, completely, destroyed. Health facilities that remain functional are at continued risk of attack, with more than 41 attacks targeting health workers and facilities reported by WHO in 2018-19 across the country.

Shortage of essential medicines and health service providers and limited capacity of national public health programmes, increase the risk of spread of communicable diseases, including, acute watery diarrhoea, leishmaniasis, tuberculosis and vaccine preventable diseases. Migrants, displaced people, refugees and rural communities are, especially, at risk. Inadequate access to health care is, also, impacting patients with chronic diseases, people with special needs and mental health conditions and women and mothers in need of reproductive, maternal and new-born child health services.

“Years of conflict in Libya have left behind a struggling and over-burdened health care system. Many health facilities are, fully or, partially, closed, limiting access to health care services to a population, suffering from challenges from the eight-year conflict.” said Dr Syed Jaffar Hussain, WHO Representative in Libya.

Despite the health sector, receiving, only, 36% of required funding for the Libya Humanitarian Response Plan in 2018, WHO successfully supported, almost, 405,000 medical consultations, through the provision of medical supplies, more than 16,400 specialised health care consultations and 188 major surgical procedures, including, cardiac surgeries for 78 children.

In December 2018, WHO and UNICEF, in partnership with National Centre for Disease Control of the Ministry of Health, implemented a national measles, rubella and polio vaccination campaign, that reached more than 02.65 million children.

“Investing in the health of people in Libya is a critical investment in the future of the Region.” said Dr Jaffar. “Without funding, hundreds of thousands of people will be left without the health services they need, further adding to this humanitarian tragedy and increasing the risk of diseases crossing borders.”

Health response activities by WHO and its eight health partners in Libya in 2019 include: providing a minimum package of health services to people in need, including, migrants in detention centres, through fixed or mobile facilities, strengthening the disease surveillance and rapid response system and supporting health facilities by training and deploying Emergency Medical Teams to provide specialised health services.:::ω.
