Humanitarian Situation Report

January 2019


  • On 15 January 2019, Ethiopia’s parliament passed a new law allowing refugees to move out of camps for regular education and work opportunities and improve access for refugees to documentation and financial services. This law is part of the “Jobs Compact,” a US$ 500 million programme, aiming to create 100,000 jobs (30 per cent will be allocated to refugees).
  • The mobile health and nutrition teams in Somali and Afar regions made a total of 39,661 new medical consultations in December 2018; 42.8 per cent were for under five children and 32.3 per cent for women.
  • Programme interventions in Oromia region have been limited by continued insecurity and instability which consequently restricted access to IDPs and IDP hosting woredas.
