The water ration in the eight camps averages five litres a day. far short of UNHCR's global target of 20 litres per day for each refugee. Hartisheik's doctor, Dr. Dereje Abera, says this shortage of water is a contributing factor in the camp's malnutrition rate, which is close to 20 percent for children attending the clinic.

The findings have prompted calls from lead author Dr Paul Spiegel, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees UNHCR Chief Medical Expert, for innovative financing schemes to improve access to affordable high-quality cancer care for refugees. In the first study of its kind, Spiegel and colleagues examined data from funding applications made to the UNHCR Exceptional Care Committee ECC from refugees in Jordan and Syria whose cancer treatment costs were likely to exceed US$2000 a year.

... The 'International Refugee Organization' 'IRO' was founded on April 20, 1946 to deal with the massive refugee problem created by World War II. A Preparatory Commission began operations fourteen months previously. It was a United Nations specialized agency and took over many of the functions of the earlier United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration. In 1952, its operations ceased, and it was replaced by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees UNHCR. 1 The 'Constitution of the International Refugee Organization', adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on December 15, 1946, specified the agency's field of operations. Controversially, this defined "persons of German ethnic origin" who had been expelled, or were to be expelled from their countries of birth into the postwar Germany, as individuals who would "not be the concern of the Organization." This excluded from its purview a group that exceeded in number all the other European displaced persons put ...

*  .. Flood Wreaks Havoc At Refugee Camps In Ethiopia .. Air Strike Kills MSF Medical Staff In Afghan
Lietchuor refugee camp, which shelters some 40,000 people from South Sudan, has become a lake dotted with islands as it continues raining in the area. As a result, Ethiopia’s Administration for Refugee and Returnee Affairs ARRA and the UNHCR have taken the decision to close the camp and they must find an appropriate site to relocate the refugees. Heavy rains and flooding have also caused serious damage in Pagak and Pamdong transit camps, also in Ethiopia’s Gambella region, but Lietchuor camp is the worst affected. The camp is located on flat, bare ground, with “black cotton soil” on which the floodwater pools and stagnates. The newly constructed tukuls mud huts for the refugees are completely flooded. The road built on a strip of elevated land is the only remaining inhabitable area, and some of the refugees have set up their tents along its course. MSF medical facilities however resisted. Despite now being on an island surrounded by floodwaters, the MSF health centre as well as ...

BRUSSELS, Belgium - Forced from their Baghdad home by sectarian violence, an Iraqi Christian couple in their 70s have spent the past two years bounced between detention centers in Greece and Belgium, terrified of being forced back to Iraq. Their odyssey underscores the plight of thousands of Iraqi Christians denied refuge in Europe while European Union nations argue about who is responsible to help them. With the notable exception of Sweden, Western governments - wary of letting in a seemingly never-ending stream of refugees from various countries - are not prepared to accept large numbers of Iraqis.

The food shortages are affecting the health of the little boy and other children. DORO REFUGEE CAMP, South Sudan, May 12 UNHCR. As food shortages start to affect refugee camps in South Sudan, it is the youngest who are suffering most, like Ransom Wapi. "The ongoing food crisis does not augur well for these children," says Etel Fagbohoun, a UNHCR nutrition officer in Doro, "We cannot keep malnutrition at bay with a pipeline that only allows in a trickle of food at a time," he adds. UNHCR and the World Food Programme have called on the rival sides to give them safe access to the camps before the rains come so that they can truck in vital aid for the refugees, who have fled from conflict in neighbouring Sudan since independence in 2011. The problems in getting access led to reduced food rations in March and April. Fagbohoun, who visits children in ...

*  A lost generation in Jammu's refugee camps | Features | Children
. A lost generation in Jammu's refugee camps. Features. Children. A lost generation in Jammu's refugee camps. By Anju Munshi. For 19 years, Kashmiri Pandits living in refugee camps in Jammu have seen no change in their poor living conditions. Riddled by disease, crammed into one-room tenements, and rendered unemployable by poor education and lack of employment opportunities, a whole generation has grown up angry, depressed and alienated. A small pale face with hollow eyes greets me at the entrance to Purkhoo camp in Jammu. The child looks unkempt, with a sallow complexion and a gaze that is forlorn and distant. The glow that one associates with childhood is missing. As my eyes travel around I see a group of young children, some just sitting and staring vacantly, others queuing up in a rush in front of a toilet with their mothers, waiting for their turn. Further on there is a squalid hutment with a dirty drainage tank in the middle with some toddlers playing around it, and beyond that, an open latrine with ...

More than 450,000 Pakistanis have fled their homes in the past two weeks as the military tries to root out militants in the North Waziristan region near the border with Afghanistan. But this number could reach 600,000 as the military operation continues, federal minister for states and frontier regions, retired Lt. Gen. Abdul Qadri Baloch, said during a news conference on Pakistan State TV Wednesday. That could mean an even bigger danger of spreading the disease as the number of ...

Unlike hurricanes and health epidemics, education emergencies rarely hit the news headlines. The tragic shooting of Malala in Pakistan has brought the world’s attention to the plight that 5 million children face in the country who are denied their basic right to an education. What will it take to fully open the eyes of the media and politicians to the additional 56 million in the rest of the world also out of school. As our recently-published Education for All Global Monitoring Report identifies, we are facing a global education emergency even now.

(1/603) Health policy development in wartime: establishing the Baito health system in Tigray, Ethiopia.

This paper documents health experiences and the public health activities of the Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF). The paper provides background data about Tigray and the emergence of its struggle for a democratic Ethiopia. The origins of the armed struggle are described, as well as the impact of the conflict on local health systems and health status. The health-related activities and public health strategies of the TPLF are described and critiqued in some detail, particular attention is focused on the development of the baito system, the emergent local government structures kindled by the TPLF as a means of promoting local democracy, accountability, and social and economic development. Important issues arise from this brief case-study, such as how emerging health systems operating in wartime can ensure that not only are basic curative services maintained, but preventive and public health services are developed. Documenting the experiences of Tigray helps identify constraints and possibilities for assisting health systems to adapt and cope with ongoing conflict, and raises possibilities that in their aftermath they leave something which can be built upon and further developed. It appears that promoting effective local government may be an important means of promoting primary health care.  (+info)

(2/603) Detection of poliovirus circulation by environmental surveillance in the absence of clinical cases in Israel and the Palestinian authority.

The global eradication of poliomyelitis, believed to be achievable around the year 2000, relies on strategies which include high routine immunization coverage and mass vaccination campaigns, along with continuous monitoring of wild-type virus circulation by using the laboratory-based acute flaccid paralysis (AFP) surveillance. Israel and the Palestinian Authority are located in a geographical region in which poliovirus is still endemic but have been free of poliomyelitis since 1988 as a result of intensive immunization programs and mass vaccination campaigns. To monitor the wild-type virus circulation, environmental surveillance of sewage samples collected monthly from 25 to 30 sites across the country was implemented in 1989 and AFP surveillance began in 1994. The sewage samples were processed in the laboratory with a double-selective tissue culture system, which enabled economical processing of large number of samples. Between 1989 and 1997, 2,294 samples were processed, and wild-type poliovirus was isolated from 17 of them in four clusters, termed "silent outbreaks," in September 1990 (type 3), between May and September 1991 (type 1), between October 1994 and June 1995 (type 1), and in December 1996 (type 1). Fifteen of the 17 positive samples were collected in the Gaza Strip, 1 was collected in the West Bank, and 1 was collected in the Israeli city of Ashdod, located close to the Gaza Strip.

(3/603) Challenge of Goodness II: new humanitarian technology, developed in croatia and bosnia and Herzegovina in 1991-1995, and applied and evaluated in Kosovo 1999.

This paper presents improvements of the humanitarian proposals of the Challenge of Goodness project published earlier (1). In 1999 Kosovo crisis, these proposals were checked in practice. The priority was again on the practical intervention - helping people directly - to prevent, stop, and ease suffering. Kosovo experience also prompted us to modify the concept of the Challenge of Goodness. It should include research and education (1. redefinition of health, 2. confronting genocide, 3. university studies and education, and 4. collecting experience); evaluation (1. Red Cross forum, 2. organization and technology assessment, 3. Open Hand - Experience of Good People); activities in different stages of war or conflict in: 1. prevention (right to a home, Hate Watch, early warning), 2. duration (refugee camps, prisoners-of-war camps, global hospital, minorities), 3. end of conflict (planned, organized, and evaluated protection), 4. post conflict (remaini ng and abandoned populations, prisoners of war and missing persons, civilian participation, return, and renewal). Effectiveness of humanitarian intervention may be performed by politicians, soldiers, humanitarian workers, and volunteers, but the responsibility lies on science. Science must objectively collect data, develop hypotheses, check them in practice, allow education, and be the force of good, upon which everybody can rely. Never since the World War II has anybody in Europe suffered in war and conflict so much as peoples in Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Kosovo. We should search for the meaning of their suffering, and develop new knowledge and technology of peace.  (+info)

(4/603) Lessons on humanitarian assistance.

Conflict almost completely destroyed Rwanda's infrastructure in 1994. Natural disasters, as well as disasters caused by humans, have severely challenged humanitarian aid available within the country. In this study, we have analysed the experiences of nongovernmental organizations since the summer of 1994 to evaluate how these difficulties may be overcome. One of the problems identified has been restrictions on the ability to introduce effective health planning due to the poor quality of available local information. The implementation of effective plans that show due consideration to the environment and society is clearly necessary. Effective monitoring and detailed observation are identified as being essential to the continuity of existing humanitarian assistance.  (+info)

(5/603) Measles in Vietnamese refugee children in Hong Kong.

From September 1991-January 1992, there was a measles epidemic in an established refugee camp for 7000 Vietnamese 'Boat People' living in Hong Kong. This 16 week outbreak occurred against a backdrop of poor uptake of measles vaccination and overcrowded living conditions. Two hundred and sixty-two children were affected (155 boys, 107 girls); 235 children (89.7 %) were < 2 years old, age range 5-39 months. Children age 6-11 months had the highest crude attack rate (AR) of 54.3%. The highest age specific crude AR was 83.8% in children aged 14 months. Measles complications affected 234 (89.3%) children. Sixty-six children (25.2%) were admitted to hospital. There were two deaths from pneumonia, giving a case fatality rate of 0.76%. Measles control in refugee camps continues to be a public health challenge.  (+info)

(6/603) Health status of and intervention for U.S.-bound Kosovar refugees--Fort Dix, New Jersey, May-July 1999.

In March 1999, as a result of armed conflict in the Kosovo province of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, approximately 860,000 ethnic Albanians sought refuge in neighboring Albania, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM), the Republic of Montenegro--Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, and Bosnia-Herzegovina. As a result of massive refugee movement into FYROM, many nations, including the United States, accepted refugees for resettlement. Refugee processing centers were established in FYROM and the United States. In the United States, the Migration Health Assessment (MHA) of refugees was undertaken at Fort Dix, New Jersey (i.e., Operation Provide Refuge), in collaboration with the Office of Emergency Preparedness (OEP), Public Health Service, under the direction of the Office of Refugee Resettlement, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Assessments in Skopje, FYROM, were conducted by the International Organization for Migration. This report summarizes the results of collaboration between OEP and CDC to provide preventive health programs for 4045 Kosovar refugees at Fort Dix during a 10-week period, which found that the refugees were in good health and underscores the need for a tailored intervention program targeted at the health conditions of the specific population.  (+info)

(7/603) Nutritional status and mortality of refugee and resident children in a non-camp setting during conflict: follow up study in Guinea-Bissau.

OBJECTIVE: To study the effects on children of humanitarian aid agencies restricting help to refugee families (internally displaced people). DESIGN: Follow up study of 3 months. SETTING: Prabis peninsular outside Bissau, the capital of Guinea-Bissau, which has functioned as a refugee area for internally displaced people in the ongoing war, and the study area of the Bandim health project in Bissau. PARTICIPANTS: 422 children aged 9-23 months in 30 clusters. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Mid-upper arm circumference and survival in relation to residence status. RESULTS: During the refugee situation all children deteriorated nutritionally, and mortality was high (3.0% in a 6 week period). Rice consumption was higher in families resident in Prabis than in refugees from Bissau but there was no difference in food expenditure. Nutritional status, measured by mid- upper arm circumference, was not associated with rice consumption levels in the family, and the decline in circumference was significantly worse for resident than for refugee children; the mid-upper arm circumference of refugee children increased faster than that of resident children. For resident children, mortality was 4.5 times higher (95% confidence interval 1.1 to 30.0) than for refugee children. Mortality for both resident and refugee children was 7.2 times higher (1.3 to 133.9) during the refugee's stay in Prabis compared with the period after the departure of the refugees. CONCLUSION: In a non-camp setting, residents may be more malnourished and have higher mortality than refugees. Major improvements in nutritional status and a reduction in mortality occurred in resident and refugee children as soon as refugees returned home despite the fact that there was no improvement in food availability.  (+info)

(8/603) The assessment of immigration status in health research.

OBJECTIVE: This report examines methodological issues relating to immigrant health, definition of immigrant, the assessment of immigrant status, and sampling strategies with immigrant populations. METHODS: A literature review was conducted for the period 1977-98, utilizing various computer data bases to identify relevant studies. A total of 179 separate U.S.-based studies were reviewed. Twenty-two sample instruments and two revised versions of instruments for the assessment of immigration status were evaluated. RESULTS: In general, research relating to immigrants and their health has not attended to methodological issues inherent in such investigations. Instruments utilized to assess immigration status differ across studies, making cross-study comparisons difficult. Few studies have relied on probability sampling. Almost no data are available on field performance of instruments developed to assess immigration status. CONCLUSIONS: Development of an appropriate instrument requires consideration of the definition of immigrant to be used, the level of respondent knowledge to be presumed, the political and social climate that exists at the time of the survey administration, the populations and geographic locales with which the instrument will be utilized, the complexity of the instrument, and methods of the instrument administration. In view of the paucity of data pertaining to the field performance of instruments used to assess immigration status, any instrument considered for use must be field tested and revised appropriately before incorporation into a national survey. The appropriateness of any particular sampling strategy should be evaluated in the context of the field testing.  (+info)

could the outbreak of autism in somali refugees be linked to their eating GM relief foods?


  • I have worked in refugee feeding programmes all my life and in Somalia in the 1980's. At some point about 100% of Somalis have consumed relief grain which is notoriously GM (provided by UN World Food Program). Most of these refugees came from camps in Kenya. This may be the most important means of finally confirming the cause of autism...
  • My question to you would be are these refugees also getting immunized? The link of gut permeability (one cause is MMR-look up measles symptoms, as well as toxic burden- check out the ingredients in vaccines- aluminum, mercury, etc. to the body), this is believed by some to cause the body to not be able to handle the peptides from casien and gluten (dairy, wheat, oats, barley, rye). These foods are not broken down enough in the gut before they "get through" the intestinal walls- in peptide form. These peptides cause damage to the brain! I have spoken to moms of young children who reversed their autism diagnosis by eliminating these foods within months of their children descending into autism. Many others, myself included have seen marked improvements in their kids once these foods have been removed. To answer, toxins- whether in foods (pesticides), the environment, and/or vaccines would be more likely the "cause", but the peptides from these foods that the body can no longer tolerate does a real number on the brains of these individuals. As far as the genetic modification of the grain- GM wheat is purposely modified to increase the amount of gluten in each grain. This could possibly contribute to the damage- but gluten is gluten- genetically modified or otherwise. If you are interested- look up "Defeat Autism Now". We have been working with a DAN doctor for the past year and have undertaken blood, urine, and stool laboratory testing that has confirmed live measles gut infection, malabsorbtion of nutrients, food intolerances, peptides in the urine, gut infestation with yeast and bad microbes....etc. it has all panned out for our son- and he is improving.


How to get custody of a newborn child who loves on a refugee camp in ghana africa with his mother my friend?


  • A friend of mine who lives on a refugee camp in Ghana wants to give me custody of her newborn child. She doesn't know whom the father is. And she and I are not sure of where to begin the process of granting sole custody or adoption whichever is easier to my husband and I. We are both us citizens and we would more than love to raise this child as our own since we are unable to have any children. Is there anyone familiar with this type of situation and who can tell us step by step what to do to complete this process asap.
  • Why can't you sponsor the mother to come over to the US - and look after both her and her child?? What's best for the baby is to stay with his/her mother. I'm sorry you can't have your own children - but taking another from a mother that with some help could most likely be a good mother is a little rough on the mother and on the child. Read up on effects of separation on the child. It's not great on one's psyche. I know - I'm an adoptee. To read about the effects on mother's who relinquish - read these blogs - http://www.adultadoptees.org/forum/index.php?topic=2804.0 To read about the effects on adoptees - read these blogs - http://www.adultadoptees.org/forum/index.php?topic=2805.0 If this is your friend - I'm thinking that you really want to help both her and her child out - so that's why I have given this advice to you. It's in the best interest of the child - and the mother.

  • I want to cook a meal for a Haitian Refugee that is staying in our facility, but due to the language barrier, do not know what I should cook. I was thinking beans and rice, does anyone else have suggestions?
  • I imagine they would eat just about anything you prepared, but if they are used to simpler foods it can cause problems to have a lot of meat or fried foods. Just prepare a healthy variety foods and it should be OK.


Do your kids play with any refugees?


  • I know there are some refugees in the united states. Do you and your family know any? Do you spend time with them? Nope Fred, not a troll. I work with refugees and have lot's of family friends that have been refugees for years. Many times refugees all live in a camp or are located in a certain part of town and have little to do with the general population due to language barriers and cultural shock. I live in Eastern Europe but will be moving to the USA soon. Just wondering if refugees mix more or less with the general population than here. Dick.
  • I'm not in the US, but my daughter's best friend is a refugee from Africa. If we are talking immigrants, then half my daughter's nursery is made up of them. They are so sweet - much sweeter than people who were born here and think they own the country - and my daughter can already say "hullo" in five languages.


What does this tattoo mean on Burmese refugee?


  • I saw a tattoo of four dots in the shape of a T on the left hand of a Burmese refugee. Does this symbolize anything? It wasn't like a letter but more like half a + sign. It was located in the center of his hand, each dot was about a centimeter apart from each other and a half inch in size. This refugee spoke very little English, so all he could tell me about it was that it "Wasn't good". Sand - My suspicions are that he is either in a gang or was a criminal in Burma. Also, the tattoo was not in the shape of a triangle as that article suggests.
  • From this article, it appears to be about magic. http://www.tattoolife.com/archive/arch_20.html


Do land conditions create refugees, or the inhabitants mindset?


  • Say, if enough refugees move to a new country, will they bring with them the reason they left their country of origin? (ie- a number of unrelated civil wars, famines, class seperation etc.)
  • You are equating a health question with political considerations.


How long does the treatment take to cure Malaria?


  • I'm in 7th grade writing a story about refugees, and malaria happens to be the disease a character has. I need to know this. Thank you. Thank you, Debonair. I searched and it says "Malaria can be cured if treated while in its early stages..." (http://www.hmc.psu.edu/healthinfo/m/malaria.htm) But yes, there isn't a vaccine yet.
  • Depends which species of the malarial parasite this character is infected with, and that will depend somewhat on from where exactly they are a refuge. Plasmodium vivax is the most common in Asia and the US, whereas P. falciparum is the most common in Africa. For P. vivax the treatment is for about 14 days but there is a problem of drug resistance and relapse with this beast; it can recur throughout life. However it is not usually life threatening. For P. falciparum the treatment is a bit easier and lasts about 3 days, the disease usually does not recur. However this form can be deadly if not treated quickly. Hope that helps.
