Silje Lehne Michalsen was this week discharged from hospital in #Oslo after fully recovering from #Ebola. Silje was on her first mission for #MSF, working in #Bo, #SierraLeone during the early stages of the Ebola #outbreak. After four months of caring for patients and responding to this highly contagious disease, she fell ill herself with symptoms of Ebola. Now she has returned to health her only thoughts are on those who succumbed to Ebola and how soon she can return to help MSF in combating the disease. In her own words, "The clock is ticking, more people are dying. We have to act, and we have to act now." Sierra Leone 2014 © MSF

klegrand15 : @vunami Case rate, morbidity, and mortality are not synonymous with being contagious. It is mildly difficult to contract the virus, but when someone does, he or she has a ~55% chance of death from the disease. That is called virulence. These are simple public health terms that are being misconstrued by the media. All I'm asking is for influential outlets to get their words right.
shineonsierraleone : We will stop ebola together!
vunami : @klegrand15 I understand what you're getting at, but you have to face that it's worse than you may want to think, especially for Africa, and gosh according to the US Army Manual of 2011 declared it being contagious via air. The biggest problem is leadership now to have the logistics and manpower to deal with what you're getting at which is saving lives. It's scary to face because for instance, there are only four level 4 facility hospitals in the US that can deal with an outbreak here, and 3 of them are practically in the middle of nowhere. Please take a look at this interview with Debra Freeman, a public health doctor, endemiologist. Take Care.
yasdnilr : Yay!!!
hgridley1 : And yet we send them back to the US for treatment. It's bs! And a lot of people are getting this virus that's only contracted through "body fluids"
worldnp : ^^^ Do you think your fear mongering helps fight Ebola better than trained professionals? The people going to fight Ebola in Africa are doing so for you and your children and all the people in Africa and around the globe. Without them there's no chance. What's bs is you not saying thank you, from the bottom of your heart, while you sit there doing nothing.

Kollie James is the 1,000th #survivor of #Ebola treated by #MSF and has now been discharged from the treatment centre in #Foya, #Liberia. He said to his #father upon leaving the centre, "Pa, I am well". Kollie and his father Alexander, an MSF healthcare worker, survived the infection but, tragically, #Ebola took the lives of his mother, uncle and two sisters who were unable to receive treatment in time. Among the 4,500 patients #MSF has admitted to its care centres in West Africa, more than 2,700 were confirmed as having #Ebola. Despite all the loss and suffering caused by this disease, we are now able to celebrate the 1,000th survivor. Liberia © Katy Athersuch/MSF

A significant reduction in water levels was accomplished in a camp overcrowded with tens of thousands of people near #Bentiu, #SouthSudan. #Refugees and internally displaced people were living knee-deep in sewage contaminated flood-water but a drainage canal improved conditions. Most people’s shelters are now dry. #MSF remains cautious though as with the next heavy downpour the flood water may return. South Sudan 2014 ©Jean-Pierre Amigo

Four-year-old Bego is on antiretroviral treatment and suffers from #malaria and #malnutrition. She used to live in the #displacement camp near #Mpoko airport in #CentralAfricanRepublic with her mother, Irène, but recently had to return to her home in #Bangui when the rainy season made living conditions in the camp very difficult. Irène says she feels unsafe in her neighbourhood and that her children are afraid, but she has nowhere else to go. Central African Republic 2014 © Alexandra Malm

A young man from #Gambia prays inside the transit camp of Augusta, #Italy, a few hours after being rescued at sea. War and long term crises have forced an unprecedented number of people to try and reach Europe by sea, one of the most dangerous means of #migration. There is a high risk of dying at sea and many experience extreme violence along the way, especially women and children. Italy 2014 ©Ikram N’gadi

Patrick Poopel, six years old, holds his certificate saying he is #Ebola free. Patrick and his father were both discharged from the Ebola Case Management Centre run by #MSF in Monrovia, #Liberia. “Being discharged from the centre is a confusing affair. After weeks when people are afraid to go near you, suddenly they want to hug and kiss you. It can bewilder anyone, even a worldly young man like Patrick,” says MSF psychologist Ane Bjøru Fjeldsæter.

RG @mathieufortoul: A young girl is screened for malaria in #Aweil hospital, northern Bahr el Ghazal state, #SouthSudan. During the rainy season around 500 people are screened all the days for malaria by #MSF teams in Aweil hospital. 70% are positive.The severe cases are hospitalized. This year the outbreak is important due to the important rains producing stagnant water for mosquitos and the lack of health facilities for the population. #regramapp

RG @mathieufortoul: #SouthSudan has the highest maternal mortality rate in the world – 2,054 per 100,000 live births. This is an astronomical figure representing a 1 in 7 chance of a woman dying during her lifetime from pregnancy related causes. Currently, there is only one qualified midwife per 30,000 people and in case of problems the closest health facility is often accessible after many hours on the roads. #Aweil hospital, where #MSF is working in the maternity and neonatal wards, is one of the few places where women can give birth in a secure medical environment in northern Bar El Ghazal state counting 780,000 inhabitants. More than 500 women come each month to deliver in the hospital. Amel, 20, lives in Apada, near Aweil. She came to the hospital on the 1st of October to give birth to her first child #regramapp

akosuaf : I know you all are doing amazing work out there but it is absolutely distasteful to put a woman's photo who is naked and pregnant and not even aware. You need to take this photo off @doctorswithoutborders westerners have no sense of modesty but Africans do. Stop!!!! Think!!! Take this OFF...
kimberlygr1 : Totally disrespectful!
meowmixfancyfeast : @doctorswithoutborders I would feel very violated if I was this woman. Pleases try a little harder to maintain the dignity of the people you serve.
carlafromcali : I admire doctors w/o borders, but patient dignity is important too.
tristanbeth : I agree with so any of these comments. I love MSF and hope and trust that consent was given to post this photo. Patient dignity should always be a first priority.
tristanbeth : *many
saskia.t : @madsteel - they are crazy statistics, we really should go!
mathieufortoul : The patient gave me her consent before and after the delivery. She has seen also the picture before publication. Please be sure that the dignity of our patients is my first priority. Thanks !

RG @mathieufortoul: Deng and Cham are born three days ago. These twins are lucky to be alive today in #SouthSudan where give birth is a challenge. South Sudan has the highest maternal mortality rate in the world – 2,054 per 100,000 live births. This is an astronomical figure representing a 1 in 7 chance of a woman dying during her lifetime from pregnancy related causes due to daily life conditions and the lack of health facilities. Twins' mother, started to deliver while she went to Aweil's market which is over 3 hours from her home. When she arrived in #Aweil market she started to feel contractions and was took in charge by #MSF in Aweil hospital. “I had lot of chance to start to deliver in Aweil because my house is far from the hospital and in case of complicated delivery I do not have an easy access to medical facilities. Two of my children already died few years ago during my delivery or the following days. Today I am very happy with these two boys” says the mother. Aweil hospital, where MSF is working in the maternity and neonatal wards, is one of the few places where women can give birth in a secure medical environment in northern Bahr el Ghazal state counting 780,000 inhabitants. More than 500 women come each month to deliver in the hospital. #regramapp
