          Since the beginning of 2013, it was recorded six cases of acute flaccid paralysis that in the region of Diffa. This situation is alarming compared to the same period in 2012 when a single case has been registered. What attracts the most attention is that two-thirds of cases are recorded in two CSI seventy-two (62) that make up the region. It is Bandi and Chétimari all in the health district of Diffa. Investigations should then be conducted to find out the real background of this imbalance.
          On malaria, the number of cases at the beginning of the year until week 8 (8089 cases), almost double the cases recorded in 2012 (4236 cases) over the same period. According to information received from the Regional System Programming and health information (SPIS), the district of Diffa, having suffered the most damage from floods, recorded 5780 cases alone. This situation suggests that there may be a link between the floods after the exceptional flood of the Ko-Madougou and the number of malaria cases recorded. The responses during the emergency seem to have helped mitigate the severity of the problem because the number of deaths remained at the same levels as in the year 2012 over the same period despite the doubling of cases.

            Health:
            Like previous weeks, no cases of cholera have been recorded during the week 9
            the year 2013. At the same time, in 2012, health facilities had reported 247 cases / 2 deaths.
            The cumulative total of measles cases by week 9 of the year 2013 is 655 cases / 2 deaths
            against 341 cases / 1 death in 2012, at the same time, double the event in 2012. This
            increase in cases could be linked to the current outbreak of measles in the region
            Tillabéry, particularly in the health district Filingué.
            According to health authorities, 440 cases (66%) of 655 cases reported from three districts to
            Western countries: Filingué (287 cases), Niamey (99 cases) and Ouallam (54 cases). However, the coverage
            vaccine is 100% Filingué district during the campaign of vaccination against measles
            (VAR) in November 2012. The distribution of measles cases by age group shows that 60% of
            cases involve children under 15 years.
            It should also be noted that 15 cases of measles were no deaths occurred among children in the camp
            refugee Mangaizé (District Health Ouallam). These children, who arrived in Niger with the recovery
            the war in neighboring Mali, had not benefited from the national campaign of mass vaccination
            conducted in November 2012. A fightback campaign with sweep "door to door" is being
            MSF-Switzerland and the Ministry of Public Health. The table below provides an overview of attack rates
            weekly measles from 2011 to 2013 in Niger.
            ...
            Thirty new cases of measles were recorded in the region of Tillabéry during week 09 despite the implementation of a response, including a vaccination campaign since the end of January.
            Three hundred sixty-four cases have been recorded since the beginning of the year. Officials regional Health explain the persistence of the epidemic in part by the incubation period of three weeks the virus. They believe it is possible that a subject vaccinated and infected develops the disease, even if it is so rough. According to the Regional Director of Public Health Tillabéry despite fightback campaign against measles organized from the 4th week of 2013, the region continues to record the event. Thus, at week 09 of the year 2013, 32 cases were recorded, for a cumulative 364 cases since the beginning of the year.

              Health: increase in cases of malaria

              Humanitarian organizations working in the health sector should Tillabéry
              organize an awareness day against malaria.
              Recommendations on the regional cluster health / nutrition they should popularize and demonstrate to people
              local why it is important to re treated nets. More than 8000 cases of malaria
              were recorded at week 10 in the region 6900 against the same period last year. Directorate
              Regional Public Health believes that non-use or misuse of nets
              impregnated would be the reason.

              A Diffa, 12 606 cases of malaria recorded at week 10 are double
              cases in the same period last year.
              The region had experienced flooding as a result of the flooding of the Komadougou, mainly in the district
              Health Diffa. These floods constitute one of the main reasons for the increase in cases. District
              Diffa health records alone 3/4 of malaria cases reported.

              In Zinder also malaria cases have more than doubled compared to the same period
              last year.
              According to data from the Regional Directorate of Health (PRSP), the cumulative week 11 reported 61
              115 malaria cases against 29,569 cases in 2012 to the same period, resulting in an increase of 106.69% of
              case. This sharp increase in cases could be explained by the heavy rainfall recorded at the end
              rainy season which led to the persistence of many breeding sites (ponds and even puddles
              water) in the first quarter of 2013.

              Seventy-four new cases of measles were reported in week 11 to Tillabéry, Diffa recorded his first event of the year.
              This brings the year to date to 515 provisional with one death, almost triple the cases recorded in the same period in 2012 (177 cases). Nearly half (35) of new cases were recorded in the department Say. The recent campaign response had not been held because the department had until then registered that there no cases.

              A Diffa, the first case since the beginning of 2013 were recorded Mainé Soroa, while in the same period last year, it was recorded 52 cases in the region. However, vigilance is required because the situation could change quickly if measures are not taken.

He also urged people to change their behavior. To fight against the spread of the disease, the local authorities have limited their access to the river side to the public. For now, the water is free to Ayorou until further notice and awareness measures are undertaken. In terms of urgent needs, the center still lacks input in the management of cholera, some drugs and products of water treatment. The first responses are organized around the health authorities have made available to the Regional Director of Public Health (PRSP) cartons Aquatab and drug management of cholera. WHO provided solutes Ringer Lactate - oral rehydration salts, of rapid diagnostic tests of cholera and supports data collection for a value of about 3 million FCFA.

Plan International intervene in awareness, drugs and the treatment of water (with a budget of 14 million CFA francs) and CISP (water treatment) and Samaritan's purse (provision of radio spots and 52 community volunteers trained to the awareness level of the villages at risk).
                The source of contamination is linked to the Niger River water that is consumed not only by locals but also by those who come to Ayorou weekly market held every Sunday. Island villages, located upstream and downstream of the river are targeted for prevention interventions, it is: Firgoune, famale, Namari Goungou, Kouréni, Sona and Sawani.
                Activation of cholera response plan for Tillabéry, developed in the month of
                February with the support of WHO, is expected to contain the most epidemic

                    Seven years after the last outbreak of diphtheria is back: 41 cases with 7 deaths

                    With 41 cases, including 16 deaths, diphtheria has returned to Niger seven years after the last outbreak in 2006. (this is an accurate translation. The disagreement in the number of fatalities is in the original document - Ro) The recent outbreak has been confirmed in the Health District Tillabéry health center Tanghoushmane. The most affected age group is the 5 to 14 years with 26 cases, more than 15 years with 11 cases and that of 0-4 years, with four cases. A response plan is being developed with the support of WHO, CEREMES, the National Reference Laboratory (NRL). It will focus on the management of cases and vaccination response.
                    Tangoushmane the village is a hamlet populated majority of nomads, located 131 km from Tillabéry, capital health district which is the chief town of the region with the same name. The total population served is estimated at 4,585 inhabitants.
                    Preventable by vaccination, diphtheria is an infectious disease that is spread from person to person through droplets of saliva that are issued from the throat of a patient when he coughs or sneezes.
                    Its incubation period is usually two to five days. Symptoms range from mild angina angina in malignant diphtheria whose evolution can be fatal and are interested in the larynx or the upper and lower respiratory tract. The disease can be fatal in 5-10% of cases, even if appropriate treatment was instituted. Without treatment, the mortality rate is even higher. Untreated patients are infectious for two to three weeks. In the absence of vaccination, children and adults may repeatedly disease.
                    Since 2006, no cases of diphtheria have been confirmed in Niger, the last being that of the Health Centre N'Gourti in Guigmi health district in the far east of the country. In the EPI (Expanded Programme on Immunization) systematic, routine vaccinations are performed each year through the integrated health centers and an assessment of the routine EPI coverage was even made
                    in 2013.

                    Cholera home Ayorou remains active
                    Noted in the lull Tillabéry (western waterfront of the river) after a slight
                    rise in cholera cases in the previous week.
                    As of July 3, 2013 corresponding to the 26 weeks of the year, a total of 331
                    cases with 10 deaths were recorded, representing a 3% fatality. This is considerably
                    above the WHO standard that is <1%. Although the epidemic seems to mark a break
                    compared to previous weeks, it remains a concern in the area
                    Ayorou, its epicenter, where we continue to notify 1-2 cases from the Centre
                    Health Kandadji, also located along the Niger River.
                    A Ayorou, starting point epidemic, it has been notified (at the time

                      Health situation in the region Tillabéry: New cases of diphtheria and cholera

                      The health status of the Tillabéry is not nearly stabilize with new cases of diphtheria since the first confirmations of 25 June 2013 and the continuing cholera epidemic, especially with the emergence of new homes Tera .
                      Five new cases of diphtheria with one death have been confirmed since June 25, bringing the total of reported cases to 46 with 18 deaths as of July 8, 2013.
                      The epidemic remains confined to the locality of Tangoushmane (a hamlet populated nomadic), located 131 km north of the city of Tillabéry and 45 km from the Ayorou, all in the Health District Tillabéry.
                      The age bracket of 05-14 years is the most affected with 26 cases confirmed June 25. The first cases appeared on 23 April 2013, but could not be confirmed that on June 27, just over two months later.
                      Diphtheria is contagious through saliva droplets transmitted by sneezing or coughing of the patient.
                      It is entirely preventable by vaccination. Since 2006, no cases of diphtheria had been confirmed in Niger, the last being that of the Health Centre N'Gourti in the health district Guigmi (Diffa Region) in the far east of the country . Under the expanded routine immunization program, routine vaccinations are performed each year through integrated health centers in the country, but it appears that coverage of the locality Tangoushmane was nonexistent: No vaccination program: routine or mass there having been made in the recent past. The access to the area difficult, due to security constraints explain the failure of local health services.

                      Two new outbreaks of cholera, with 58 cases with no deaths were recorded in villages and Mamassey Zaney in the Health District of Tera.

                      The emergence of these new homes has helped to raise to 395 with 10 deaths accumulated case July 8, 2013. The first cases were recorded May 6, 2013. If the epidemic affects more men (202 cases) than women (191 cases), however, it is more deadly in women (8 deaths) than among men (2 deaths). The majority of cases remains concentrated in the health district of Tillabéry, especially around the area of ​​health Ayorou, starting point of the epidemic. Nearly 7 in 10 (67%) of the affected people are aged 15 years and beyond.
                      The comparative evolution (see below) in the case of eight regions of the country in the first 23 weeks of the last three years indicates that the period of spades yet to come. It usually corresponds to the rainy season which, moreover, is in progress. The relative stability of the situation should not lower our guard, warn aid agencies.
