NEW WASH - Facts & Figures whole of Syria: End of the year 2018

UN Children's Fund UNICEF, Eds.: UNICEF , (2019)

14.6 mio people in 2018 were in need of access to safe water, partly due to heavy infrastructure damage. Despite investments in water treatment systems and provision of water disinfectants, the main challenge countrywide remained on the water quality side, particularly at point of use. This resulted from deteriorating secondary infrastructures such as water networks and sewage systems, as well as limitations in regular operational and maintenance of water treatment stations. WASH situation in IDP camps also continued to be critical, requiring the provision of full WASH service packages while promoting the transition towards more sustainable solutions.

The UCL–Lancet Commission on Migration and Health: the health of a world on the move

Ibrahim Abubakar, Robert W Aldridge, Delan Devakumar, et al., Eds.: The Lancet, (2018)

The UCL–Lancet Commission on Migration and Health steps into this political debate to provide evidence for cooperation and action on what is one of the most pressing issues of the 21st century. The Commission’s foundation is that migration and health are inextricably linked—and key to sustainable development. It provides a framework of migration as a dynamic process, providing evidence of the multiple factors that could be beneficial or detrimental to individuals and systems along the migration journey—at origin, transit, destination, and return. It documents the devastating impacts of forced migration, especially on girls and women, but also the overall benefits to the health of individuals and populations that migration generates. It lays out a research agenda to better ensure the health of migrants. Using the lens of health the Commission shows that migration policies can be both ethical and feasible—calling for governments, international agencies, and professionals to promote health in global mobility.
