The first-ever UN emergency health mission, the UN Mission for Ebola Emergency Response (UNMEER) is being set up in response to the unprecedented outbreak. The Mission will be temporary and will respond to immediate needs related to the fight against Ebola, which has been reported in more than 13,703 people and killed 4,920 as of 27 October 2014, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
UN Day on 24 October 2014 marks the start of the 70th year of the organization. UN Photo is pleased to present "We the Peoples", an exhibition celebrating the UN through powerful images of people, both UN workers and the individuals they serve each day. Taking its title from the opening line of the UN Charter, the exhibition hopes to tell the story of the UN's ideals, successes and challenges for the past seven decades. The exhibition is on tour and has been to Germany, Japan and Pakistan.
