More than 75 countries have introduced rotavirus vaccines in less than 10 years – the fastest scale up of a child vaccine ever. Children who are vaccinated are 50-94% less likely to be hospitalized for severe rotavirus diarrhea, but the vaccines aren’t reaching all children. Rotavirus is still responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths per year. Help us share this story so we can protect all children from rotavirus.

6.6 million children die before their 5th birthday from conditions that could be prevented or cured at very little cost. Community health workers can be life savers but need the right medicine, in the right doses, at the right time. Investing in proven supply chain solutions is vitally important so community health workers can access medicines to save children's lives.

Learn about JSI project SC4CCM's experience testing simple and affordable innovations to overcome supply chain bottlenecks at the community level.

Two mothers, two children, two very different journeys for vaccines.

We follow the fictional story of two South African mothers trying to get their child vaccinated who are met with different outcomes. 1 in 5 children around the world are unable to receive vaccinations because of unequal access to immunization services.

Let’s close the gap and make sure ALL children - especially the poorest and most marginalized - have access to the vaccines they need: http://www.unicef.org/immunization

With the onset of the Ebola epidemic, infectious waste posed an even more serious health risks to people that come in contact with it, in particular healthcare staff who are critical in containing the epidemic.

The technique used up to now in these hospitals was to gather and destroy at the back of the hospital the infected waste by burning it.

UNDP is deploying in Conakry autoclaves, that use pressurized steam at 134-135°C alternating with vacuum cycles to achieve high levels of sterilization.

Waste volumes have been growing exponentially, not only due to the rapid spread of the EBV and an increasing number of patients requiring care, but also because large quantities of personal protection equipment and disposable items being used by healthcare workers taking care of the sick and infected.

It was 1952, and polio gripped the world in fear. There was no known cause, no cure and no help in sight for parents desperate to protect their children. Across the ocean, eager to beat the potentially fatal condition, polio-afflicted President Roosevelt inspired the American public to send in their dimes to fund research.

In just a few years Joseph Salk, an ambitious 33-year-old scientist working from his basement lab in Pittsburgh, would bring infantile paralysis to its knees and change the course of medical history. World-renowned experts and survivors tell the extraordinary story of how Dr Salk and the legendary 'march of dimes' came together to help conquer polio.

How do vaccines prevent disease — even among people too young to get vaccinated? It's a concept called "herd immunity," and it relies on a critical mass of people getting their shots to break the chain of infection. Health researcher Romina Libster shows how herd immunity contained a deadly outbreak of H1N1 in her hometown. (In Spanish with subtitles.)

There have been further delays for Liberian students who were expecting to go back to the classroom this Monday. The government said it needs another two weeks to get schools ready, and safe enough, for the return. Schools and colleges across the country stayed closed after the summer holidays because of Ebola fears. CCTV's Katerina Vittozzi found out how, while the wait continues, young people are using their mobile phones to fight back against the disease.

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Ebola: efforts to combat the unprecedented outbreak in West Africa can succeed, and have already led to marked improvements in certain areas, but the fight will not be ‎over until the last case is addressed.


Dr Bruce Aylward is the Assistant Director-General of a cluster which brings together WHO's work in polio eradication and humanitarian response.
A Canadian physician and epidemiologist, Dr Aylward is the author of some 100 peer-reviewed scientific articles and book chapters. He joined the World Health Organization in 1992 as a Medical Officer with the Expanded Programme on Immunization. He worked for seven years with national immunization programmes at the field level in the Middle East, western Pacific, Europe, North Africa and central and southeast Asia. Since 1998, Dr Aylward has been responsible for the oversight and coordination of all polio eradication activities across WHO's Regional Offices and the Global Polio Eradication Initiative partnership. Since 2011, Dr Aylward has led WHO’s work in preparedness, readiness and response to humanitarian emergencies as the lead agency of the Global Health Cluster.

At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.

The Power of Early Treatment: Aminata’s Story of Ebola Survival and How She is Using it to Help Others

Like many West Africans afflicted with Ebola, Aminata Kargbo is believed to have contracted the virus by caring for sick relatives and touching the bodies of deceased family members. Thinking her loved ones were dying of malaria, typhoid, or any number of other diseases common in her native Sierra Leone, Aminata did not realize she was putting herself at risk by trying to help. Fortunately, when Aminata herself fell ill, she immediately consulted a doctor. That consultation set in motion a chain of events that saved her life. The doctor told Aminata to report to a local Ebola treatment center, where she was diagnosed with the virus and given rehydration fluids and medications to help her body fight it off. Thanks to her swift reporting of symptoms and commitment to her treatment plan, Aminata is now Ebola-free and has arisen as a leading voice in the promotion of early treatment for the disease.

Several US states have laws requiring that immunisation schedules are followed. Getting an exemption is possible, with varying degrees of difficulty.
Dr Saad Omer, Emory University in the US, says that states where getting an exemption from the law is easy have higher rates of pertussis and measles.
Vaccine mandates can preserve individual choice while 'nudging' people to take a decision that is in their own interest and the interest of wider society.
'The balance of convenience should always be in favour of vaccinating over non-vaccinating,' he says. 'Infectious diseases are, by definition, infectious - your behaviour impacts my child's health.'
This idea can be extended to vaccination of healthcare workers in hospitals. It should, says Dr Omer, be easy to be vaccinated than not be vaccinated.

•Are medication experts, but they do more than just dispense medication

Involving pharmacists in expanded roles:
•Increases the quality of care
•Improves patient control of disorders and illnesses

West Africa is currently fighting the largest Ebola outbreak in history. What does it take to fight the deadly disease?

As many Ebola treatment centres fill to capacity, family members forced to look after their ill relatives are becoming exposed to the disease. Household protection kits allow family caregivers to look after Ebola sufferers as safely as possible. Each kit contains protective gowns, gloves and masks, as well as soap, chlorine and a sprayer, along with instructions on the use and safe disposal of materials. In Liberia, one of the hardest-hit countries, UNICEF’s partners, in co-ordination with the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), are distributing kits to the five counties with the highest rates of the disease.

For more information on the kits, visit: http://www.unicef.org/media/media_76030.html.
