Every birth is unique. Some labours progress quickly, others don't. Unnecessary medical interventions should be avoided if the woman and her baby are in good condition.

Where a child lives determines his or her likelihood of surviving #cancer.
We need global action to improve the lives of children with cancer. In #Myanmar, WHO has worked with local and international partners like @stjuderesearch to promote access to and completion of treatment for all.

"The will to survive is the strongest human emotion. Our will to live as human beings is innate. I heard many painful and extremely traumatic stories from the refugees that I met in the camps. But their resilience and their will to carry on is what I admire” – our WHO colleague Purvi Paliwal shares thoughts about her experience working in Cox’s Bazar, #Bangladesh to respond to Rohingya crises.
Over 900,000 #Rohingyas have crossed over to Bangladesh following violence in Myanmar’s Rakhine state.

FACT: Most people consume too much salt.
You can take care of you and your loved ones by not adding salt during the preparation of food, and not having salt shakers from the table.
