MSF and PAM arrange for the latrines to be cleaned more or less once a day, but sometimes it doesn’t happen for weeks and the worms get so bad that they are unusable.

This ranks very, very high on the list of Things I Wish I Hadn't Read.

Is it so strange? Isn't latrines much more important for health than healthcare?

I'm with David. The big early wins for both public health and battlefield medicine were sanitation related. MSF taking care of latrines before all else doesn't seem like a stretch (though the sense that they're being ineffective at it is a bit surprising.)

Summer is definitely a heat. That is why in our house and business we make sure that we have awnings in Ottawa http://www.lalondeawning.ca/en/index.asp? all around the properties to keep us cool, regardless of the time of the day.
