Kasaï : Les enfants, premières victimes de la crise - Faire face aux ravages du conflit en République démocratique du Congo

United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), (2018)

UNICEF – SOS Enfants Mai 2018
Lorsque des actes d’une violence inouïe ont frappé la région du Kasaï, en République démocratique du Congo, en 2016, des centaines de milliers de personnes ont dû fuir pour sauver leur vie. Parmi ces personnes en fuite, beaucoup étaient des enfants.
Les familles et les enfants les plus chanceux ont pu se réfugier chez des parents ou des amis dans des zones plus calmes de la région. Cependant, la plupart ont été déplacés à l’intérieur du pays, contraints de vivre à ciel ouvert au milieu d’une vaste et impitoyable savane formée d’arbres et d’arbustes, sans aucun accès à des soins de santé, à de la nourriture et à de l’eau salubre, et sans la moindre allumette pour faire du feu ni la moindre moustiquaire pour se protéger de la malaria.

Risk Communication and Community Engagement Considerations: Ebola Response in Democratic Republic of the Congo

World Health Organization WHO, (2018)

Overview: Risk communication and community engagement are essential for any disease outbreak response. This is particularly critical during outbreaks of Ebola which may create fear in the public and frontline responders alike due to severe presentation of symptoms, misunderstanding of the causes of illness and high fatality rates. This document outlines some of the key considerations for risk communication and community engagement response to Ebola outbreak in Democratic Republic of the Congo. Ebola outbreaks have been associated with misinformation and false rumours. In the context of RCCE, rumours refer to unsubstantiated information, claims or beliefs about what is causing the disease or how it can be treated/cured. If not proactively addressed in culturally appropriate ways, misinformation and rumours can lead to the further rapid spread of the disease and unnecessary deaths, severe disease, suffering, and societal and economic loss. The publication includes a 'Rumour Tracking Tool' (Annex II).

Improving Estimates of Insecticide-Treated Mosquito Net Coverage from Household Surveys: Using Geographic Coordinates to Account for Endemicity and Seasonality

Burgert, Clara R., Sarah E.K. Bradley, Erin Eckert, and Fred Arnold., (2012)

DHS ANALYTICAL STUDIES 32 - This report examines the possible bias in national estimates of standard Roll Back Malaria (RBM) indicators of insecticide-treated mosquito net (ITN) ownership and use. The analysis uses GPS data for 18 sub-Saharan African countries to correlate these measures with levels of malaria endemicity and seasonality and to recalculate coverage estimates based on the population at risk. The report proposes an approach to identifying populations at risk of malaria that countries could use to produce subnational estimates that account for variations in malaria endemicity or seasonality.
