« Au Somaliland, les hôpitaux sont débordés d’enfants en situation de malnutrition sévère »

Bruno Meyerfeld, journaliste au « Monde » rentrant du Somaliland, a répondu aux questions des lecteurs du Monde.fr, mardi 28 mars, à l’occasion d’une journée spéciale sur la famine au Soudan du Sud, au Nigeria, en Somalie et au Yémen. Depuis quand existe le Somaliland ? Sous quel régime vivent ses habitants ? Bruno Meyerfeld : Le Somaliland a déclaré son indépendance du reste de la Somalie le 18 mai 1991, après des années de guerre civile. Il n’est pour l’instant pas reconnu par la communauté internationale. Pouvez-vous nous expliquer quelles sont sur le terrain les conséquences de la famine ?

Rappelons d’abord que la famine n’a pour l’instant été déclarée qu’au Soudan du Sud, et seulement dans l’Etat de Unity. Sur le terrain, la situation est malgré tout très difficile.

Meat eaters

That weight is rising rapidly as our numbers are still growing and we are getting heavier. Back in 2011 each of us weighed, on average, just under eight stone. Around two billion of us were children then, and there were more people underweight than overweight worldwide. Since then, the number that are overweight has risen dramatically. The proportion of the population who are children has been falling, as fertility itself has fallen. The heaviest animals on the planet are the ones we farm for their meat. Then there are the 18.6 billion chickens weighing 40 million tonnes worldwide, being by far the most populous birds on the planet today. We know that collectively the amount we are eating, farming and killing, is increasing rapidly – but we sometimes make the mistake of assuming that this is widespread. #NEWSGRAPHIC Today is the @WHO world tuberculosis day.

Six charts that explain India’s battle against malnutrition

Despite years of rapid economic growth, child malnutrition rates remained unchanged for years. After years of stasis, there seems to be some sign of progress in India’s battle against malnutrition, although malnutrition rates remain high. A Mint analysis based on provisional state-wise data from a recent national survey shows that some of the most malnourished states of the country have witnessed the sharpest fall in the proportion of underweight children.

Ebola Situation Report - 10 June 2015

In total, 31 confirmed cases of EVD were reported in the week ending 7 June: 16 cases in Guinea and 15 in Sierra Leone. This is the second consecutive weekly increase in case incidence, and the highest weekly total number of cases reported from Sierra Leone since late March. In addition, cases were reported from a widening geographical area in Guinea and Sierra Leone, and the continued occurrence of cases that arise from unknown sources of infection highlights the challenges still faced in finding and eliminating every chain of transmission.A total of 16 cases were reported from 5 western prefectures of Guinea in the week to 7 June.
