Mali: WHO AFRO Outbreaks and Other Emergencies, Week 44: 28 October - 3 November 2019 Data as reported by: 17:00; 3 November 2019

 Cache   
Source: World Health Organization
Country: Angola, Benin, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Comoros, Congo, Côte d'Ivoire, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Ghana, Guinea, Kenya, Lesotho, Liberia, Mali, Mozambique, Namibia, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, South Sudan, Togo, Uganda, United Republic of Tanzania, Zambia

Overview

This Weekly Bulletin focuses on public health emergencies occurring in the WHO African Region. The WHO Health Emergencies Programme is currently monitoring 68 events in the region. This week’s main articles cover key new and ongoing events, including:

  • Measles in Lesotho

  • Hepatitis E in Namibia

  • Humanitarian crisis in Mali

  • Ebola virus disease in Democratic Republic of the Congo.

For each of these events, a brief description, followed by public health measures implemented and an interpretation of the situation is provided.

A table is provided at the end of the bulletin with information on all new and ongoing public health events currently being monitored in the region, as well as recent events that have largely been controlled and thus closed.

Major issues and challenges include:

  • The hepatitis E outbreak first identified in Namibia in December 2017 continues, despite response efforts made to date to halt ongoing transmission of the virus. The major drivers of the outbreak remain the same, limited access to safe drinking water, inadequate sanitation and poor personal and food safety practices. Novel initiatives are therefore needed to address the outbreak such as finalising the review of the relevance and feasibility of a vaccination intervention. There is also a need to sustain conventional control activities, particularly in the informal settlements, and strengthen surveillance and coordination mechanisms in all the affected areas.

  • The humanitarian situation in Mali remains complex and volatile. The number of IDPs has continued to rise as a result of the deteriorating security context and the impact of floods experienced earlier in the year. As well as supporting the immediate needs of the population, the resilience of the health system to epidemics and public health emergencies needs to be reinforced.
    Furthermore, local and international authorities and partners must continue to advocate for peace in the region in order to relieve the suffering of this vulnerable population.

How Bridge uses technology to support low-income countries

How Bridge uses technology to support low-income countries
The global shortage of learning is truly shocking. Today, most children in the world are not reaching even basic levels…

Former British Prime Minister and now chair of the global Education Commission, Gordon Brown, has called the learning crisis the ‘civil rights struggle of our time’. World leaders are rightly calling on every sector to join the fight — to use all the tools and resources at our disposal to tackle this effectively. To win this struggle would prevent another generation from being deprived of basic abilities and reduce many drivers of instability and conflict.

Globally there is a shortage of about 69 million teachers and the teachers who are working in low or middle income countries are frequently under supported. Often they teach in rural, remote areas; many of the classrooms have poor learning materials and many teachers feel abandoned and can struggle to understand for themselves the content that they are teaching.

These are all very significant challenges, but not insurmountable. There is a global effort underway to tackle this, centred around UN Sustainable Development Goal 4 for 2030. On current trajectories the SDG4 target will be missed, but progress will be made towards it.

A social enterprise called Bridge International Academies, or Bridge, is focused on helping to achieve this UN goal of quality education for all in Africa and Asia. We serve communities living in extreme poverty and have helped to educate three quarters of a million children over the last ten years at nursery and primary level. Bridge is significantly improving learning outcomes by putting teaching best practice straight into the hands of local teachers around the world, using technology and in-person teacher training and coaching. The vast majority of the work Bridge does is with government teachers in government schools, and some of the work is in our own community schools and nurseries.

After government teachers have been through an intensive up-skilling and training scheme, they are ready to use hand-held tablets that give them access to very high quality lesson guides based on their local curriculum. They are trained to use best practice teaching techniques. In addition, we support them with regular in-person coaching inside the classroom every one or two weeks. In this way, both technology and continuous professional development help these teachers to deliver more child-centred lessons that result in higher learning outcomes for children.

Our approach is to treat learning as a science as we implement best practice across all the schools we run or support. We are focused on how children learn, tweaking, adapting and iterating lessons and teacher training in the light of data and evidence, to make sure children learn as much as possible.

By collecting information at scale on what lessons work best, and how children learn, local academics in-country work to improve lessons for all children. The approach means that not only can a few schools be served in a few areas but that tens of thousands of schools and millions of children can benefit anywhere in the world.

The use of technology to deliver quality education is bearing fruit in children’s lives. The results have been very encouraging. Kenyan pupils who sat their primary school leavers’ exam have surpassed their peers in other schools for the four consecutive years. In Uganda children have outperformed the national average in the two consecutive years they have sat the national exam. Children’s learning gains in Liberia, where we support government schools, showed pupils learning at twice the speed of their immediate peers. In Nigeria, a DFID report showed equity of high attainment at Bridge schools for children from all types of socio-economic backgrounds. Children in Bridge supported government schools are learning far more than previously. In India we are running community schools in the southeast region in partnership with the local government.

Social enterprises doing this sort of work is an idea supported by the majority of the UK public, and it’s also now part of the official UK Aid strategy for education. From the poorest regions of India to the low-income communities of Nairobi and even areas affected by the terrorist group al-Shabaab, well-supported teachers are thriving and making an impact.

¿Puede una lombriz mejorar la salud de una familia?

 Cache   

Macarena Soto

Liberia (Costa Rica), 6 nov (EFE).- Una lombriz se abre paso entre piedras, serrín y tierra. Su función es ingerir los excrementos de una familia costarricense en cuya casa se instala un nuevo sistema de saneamiento para evitar que el agua potable acabe contaminada.

Se trata de uno de los diez proyectos que se desarrollan en el Laboratorio de Innovación Ciudadana que termina este sábado en Liberia (Costa Rica) y organiza la Secretaría General Iberoamericana.

En Costa Rica 4,6 millones de personas (el 92,4 % de la población) cuentan con agua potable en sus hogares pero solo 750.000 personas cuentan con saneamiento seguro (15 %), según un informe de 2019 del Laboratorio Nacional de Aguas del país.

UN SISTEMA INNOVADOR CON ELEMENTOS COMUNES

Un tanque azul de metro y medio de profundidad, un par de tuberías de varios metros, rocas, piedras, gravilla, serrín y lombrices. Es todo lo que estos diez iberoamericanos emplean para dar solución al problema de saneamiento que tienen miles de casas en Costa Rica.

Una de ellas es la de Don Nelson, un miembro activo de la comunidad de Limonal (sur de la provincia de Guanacaste, al norte del país), quien prestó su domicilio, una casa baja con un negocio de venta de alimentos en la parte posterior, para instalar el prototipo.

Dos kilos de lombrices son las grandes protagonistas de este sistema alternativo al tradicional de la zona que, en muchas ocasiones, ni siquiera cuenta con guías subterráneas para indicar por dónde van las tuberías.

Dentro del tanque, las lombrices contarán con un hábitat hecho a base de serrín en el que se alimentarán y reproducirán. Este manto irá sobre kilos de rocas y piedras menores de las que también surgirán microbios, que serán, finalmente, alimento de las lombrices.

'Cuando llegamos nos encontramos con un problema de aguas residuales que se infiltran a metros de la casa, es decir, viven con la contaminación a muy baja superficie y puede traer enfermedades y contaminación', cuenta a Efe Ana Araneda, integrante del proyecto.

Así, el objetivo del filtro es 'reducir este tipo de enfermedades y el costo de cuando te enfermas y mejorar el agua y el suelo usando las lombrices', analiza.

UNA SOLUCIÓN SENCILLA A UN PROBLEMA QUE NO PREOCUPA A TODOS

Los integrantes del proyecto llevan ya una semana analizando y trabajando en la casa de Don Nelson para aplicar una idea preconcebida antes del laboratorio que, una vez en terreno, tuvieron que adaptar al caso que les ocupa.

Cuando repararon en la necesidad de cambiar la estructura al completo, vieron que tampoco contaban con el presupuesto necesario para poder cavar una zanja de varios metros.

'Don Nelson vio que merecía la pena y puso él mismo los 300 dólares que costó la excavación', rememora la argentina Pamela Natán.

Natán explica a Efe que el sistema de filtrado de residuos de casa de Don Nelson 'se vacía cada dos años' y sin embargo 'el nuevo sistema se vaciará gradualmente' a través de una tubería perforada a lo largo que impedirá que los residuos sólidos permanezcan tanto tiempo contaminando la tierra.

Así, la argentina recuerda que al llegar a esta zona de Costa Rica, las comunidades negaban necesitar este cambio pero poco después el equipo supo que usaban tratamientos para desparasitarse.

'Este es un proyecto de implantación de tecnología, es muy importante trabajar con la comunidad para que entiendan de qué se trata, se apropien de ella y lo vean como una herramienta más, no mejor ni peor, pero puedan ampliar el abanico', asegura.

Unos efectos que quieren hacer llegar a las autoridades costarricenses para que puedan replicarlo en otros lugares y que sentirá Nelson, quien ya ha contactado con varios vecinos para explicarles el proyecto.

'Ninguna zona tiene un sistema de alcantarillado, todas tienen uno individual, pero poca gente se interesa por estas cosas', lamenta.

Y aunque Nelson asegura que es un proyecto difícil de multiplicar ya que, a su juicio, 'existe un tabú' entorno a los residuos, aplaude que esta iniciativa de innovación ciudadana experimente 'con cosas nuevas que ayude a las comunidades'. EFE

World: Education Above All Foundation, World Bank Partner to Ensure Education for Two Million Out of School Children Around the World

 Cache   
Source: World Bank, Education Above All
Country: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Cameroon, Chad, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Djibouti, Ecuador, Ethiopia, Haiti, India, Iran (Islamic Republic of), Iraq, Kenya, Lao People's Democratic Republic (the), Lebanon, Liberia, Libya, Malawi, Malaysia, Mali, Mexico, Morocco, Mozambique, Myanmar, Niger, Nigeria, Pakistan, Paraguay, Philippines, Rwanda, Senegal, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, Syrian Arab Republic, Thailand, Uganda, United Republic of Tanzania, World, Zambia

WASHINGTON DC, September 20, 2019 - This week, Education Above All Foundation (EAA) and the World Bank announced a ground-breaking partnership to enrol two million out of school children from more than 40 countries by 2025. During a meeting with World Bank President David Malpass, Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, Founder and Chairperson of Education Above All Foundation, stressed the importance of this framework agreement.

The agreement commits up to $250 million in funding for developing countries striving to enable access to quality primary education for all of their still out-of-school children. Unlike traditional philanthropic efforts of organizations like EAA who usually fund local non-profits directly, this innovative funding model aims to take lessons learned in the field to scale, through direct support to participating countries with implementation, evaluation, and reporting - enabling accountability and systemic change at the national level.

Out of school children (OOSC) are among the hardest to reach in each country due to the many and often compounding barriers to education including extreme poverty, distance to school, and conflict. This new agreement calls on governments to utilise funds to prioritise out of school children by ensuring their access to quality primary education through results-based financing. The agreement highlights the importance of multi-stakeholder partnerships in supporting developing nations, in providing education for all, and meeting the UN Sustainable Development Goals, particularly SDG 4 (ensuring inclusive and quality education for all and promoting lifelong learning).

"The World Bank is committed to addressing the global learning crisis. The partnership with Education Above All is critically important in this effort. There are still too many out of school children around the globe. Together we will bring these children into school and help them learn and fulfil their potential. Learning for all is a foundation for building strong human capital for every country," said Jaime Saavedra, Global Director for Education at the World Bank.

"Our partnership with Qatar and Education Above All will play an especially important role in the Middle East and North Africa," said Ferid Belhaj, World Bank Vice President for the Middle East and North Africa. "As access to quality education is critical for the region to unlock the huge potential of its large youth population, whose energy and creativity could become a new source of dynamic and inclusive growth."

Through this new funding structure, EAA and The World Bank will support financing opportunities for resource mobilization, education advocacy, and poverty reduction in developing countries across three continents. Proposed targeted countries include Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Cameroon, Chad, Democratic Republic of Congo, Djibouti, Ecuador, Ethiopia, Haiti, India, Iran, Iraq, Kenya, Laos, Lebanon, Liberia, Libya, Malawi, Malaysia, Mali, Mexico, Morocco, Mozambique, Myanmar, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, Paraguay, Philippines, Rwanda, Senegal, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, Sri Lanka, Syria, Tanzania, Thailand, Uganda, and Zambia.

About Education Above All (EAA) Foundation

The Education Above All (EAA) Foundation is a global education foundation established in 2012 by Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser. The Foundation envisions bringing hope and real opportunity to the lives of impoverished and marginalized children, youth and women, especially in the developing world and in difficult circumstances such as conflict situations and natural disasters. It believes that education is the single most effective means of reducing poverty, generating economic growth and creating peaceful and just societies, as well as a fundamental right for all children and an essential condition to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

About World Bank Group Work on Education

The World Bank Group is the largest financier of education in the developing world. We work on education programs in more than 80 countries and are committed to helping countries reach Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4, which calls for access to quality education and lifelong learning opportunities for all by 2030. In 2018, we provided about $4.5 billion for education programs, technical assistance, and other projects designed to improve learning and provide everyone with the opportunity to get the education they need to succeed. Our current portfolio of education projects totals $17 billion, highlighting the importance of education for the achievement of our twin goals, ending extreme poverty and boosting shared prosperity.
