Niger hepatitis E
June 21, 2017

Two months after the declaration of a hepatitis E outbreak in Niger’s Diffa region, the humanitarian response is still lacking due to insufficient resources and coordination between actors. The outbreak is taking a heavy toll on some of the area’s most vulnerable people, especially pregnant women and refugees and internally displaced people who fled conflict between Boko Haram and armies in the region.

Nigeria and Niger are once again facing severe outbreaks of meningitis C. Both countries are part of Africa's "meningitis belt," a region stretching across the continent from Senegal to Ethiopia that is particularly affected by the disease during the annual dry season. Though outbreaks of meningitis are frequent in this area, slow reactions and shortages of vaccines often hamper responses. From December 13, 2016, to May 14, 2017, 13,943 suspected cases and 1,112 deaths from meningitis were reported in 24 states in Nigeria, according to the World Health Organization.

Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) has deployed several emergency teams to Niger to contain a meningitis outbreak that has killed 179 people since the beginning of the year. Working closely with Niger’s Ministry of Public Health, MSF teams have vaccinated more than 358,800 people in the most affected areas while continuing to monitor at-risk areas and provide medical care to those affected by the disease. So far, the number of meningitis cases recorded across Niger this year has almost doubled compared to 2016 during the same period.

Fighting between Boko Haram and militaries from the areas around southeastern Niger has led to more than 240,000 displaced people and refugees taking shelter in Niger's Diffa region. A third of the displaced people in Diffa have been forced to abandon their homes two or more times due to violence in the last few years. Around the towns of Garin Wazan and Kintchandi, many of the tens of thousands of people who fled Bosso, a town near the Nigeria border last June, have sought safety.
