Every region in the world, expect the Americas, is experiencing an increase in the number of cases of measles, a vaccine-preventable disease that can kill or disable children, the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Thursday.
Eradicating malaria is biologically feasible and a lofty aim, the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Friday, but the focus for now should be getting the funds, tools and political will to control it.
The head of the World Health Organization said he is reconvening the UN agency’s expert committee to assess whether or not the continuing Ebola outbreak in Congo warrants being declared a global emergency.
The number of measles cases worldwide has nearly quadrupled in the first quarter of 2019 to 112,163 against the same period last year, the World Health Organization (WHO) says, citing provisional data.
Fighting near Tripoli has killed 121 people and wounded 561 since strongman Khalifa Haftar launched an offensive earlier this month to take the Libyan capital, the World Health Organization said Sunday.
The World Health Organization (WHO) said on Friday that it feared outbreaks of infectious diseases due to dirty water and people fleeing fighting nearing Tripoli, where it has about two weeks of emergency supplies for hospitals and health facilities.
To increase access and strengthen the capacity of emergency lifesaving health care services focusing on outbreak response for epidemic-prone and vaccine-preventable diseases, World Health Organization (WHO) has been procuring, storing and distributing medical emergency kits to support humanitarian response in South Sudan.
