A health worker fighting an Ebola outbreak in Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) was shot dead on Friday in an attack on a hospital in the eastern city of Butembo, the World Health Organisation said.
At least 205 people have been killed and more than 900 wounded in the battle for control of the Libyan capital Tripoli, the World Health Organization said Thursday.
Fighting near Tripoli has killed 121 people and wounded 561 since strongman Khalifa Haftar launched an offensive earlier this month to take the Libyan capital, the World Health Organization said on Sunday.
A coalition of researchers, health organisations and patient groups have launched an ambitious campaign to cure hepatitis B, a disease that kills twice as many people as malaria but gets far less attention.
The African Union says it is closely monitoring developments in Libya where dozens of people have been killed in fighting this week, according to the World Health Organization.
