The rush to leave Khartoum continues, as both local Sudanese and foreigners try to take advantage of any opportunities presented by the delicate ceasefire to leave the capital.
Sadly, malaria continues to ravage the African region, with a child dying from the disease every minute.
In an effort to combat this disease, the World Health Organization has set a target of eradicating malaria by 2030.
Meanwhile, Conakry is currently hosting a 72-hour literary festival to celebrate African literature and identity.
As the ceasefire in Khartoum remains fragile, people are rushing to leave the capital. Both local Sudanese and foreigners are trying to take advantage of any opportunities presented by the delicate ceasefire.
The situation in Sudan remains uncertain, and people are understandably concerned about their safety.
However, as people flee the capital, another crisis continues to ravage the African region – malaria. Every minute, a child dies from this disease, making it a major public health concern. In an effort to combat this disease, the World Health Organization (WHO) has set a target of eradicating malaria by 2030.
Malaria is a preventable and treatable disease caused by a parasite that is transmitted to humans through the bites of infected mosquitoes. It is a leading cause of illness and death in many African countries, particularly among children under the age of five. The disease can also lead to anemia, respiratory distress, and other complications.
To achieve the goal of eradicating malaria by 2030, the WHO is working with governments, NGOs, and other stakeholders to implement a comprehensive approach. This includes increasing access to malaria prevention and treatment, strengthening health systems, and investing in research and development.
Meanwhile, in Conakry, the capital of Guinea, a 72-hour literary festival is taking place to celebrate African literature and identity. The festival aims to promote the rich cultural heritage of Africa and to showcase the work of African writers and artists.
The festival includes readings, panel discussions, and performances by writers and artists from across the continent. It also provides a platform for young and emerging writers to showcase their work and to connect with established authors and publishers.
Overall, the situation in Africa remains complex and challenging, as people struggle with political instability, disease, and other issues.
However, initiatives like the WHO’s effort to eradicate malaria and the Conakry literary festival offer hope and inspiration for a brighter future.
By working together and promoting the rich cultural heritage of the continent, we can build a better Africa for all.
