Children participating in the Mogadishu Book Fair.

Conflict, insecurity, drought and famine have defined Somalia throughout more than two decades. Currently, about a third of the population is still in crisis and in need of immediate food security and livelihood assistance – over 70 percent are in the conflict-ridden South where humanitarian access is limited due to the high level of insecurity. Rates of acute malnutrition illustrate an almost unimaginable situation: 30 per cent of children under 5 are acutely malnourished.

The Humanitarian Situation Reports provide concise operational documents to support the coordination of humanitarian response. It provides a snapshot of current needs, response and gaps and is produced on a monthly basis.

Highlights

  • The global acute malnutrition (GAM) prevalence between August and October 2018 is projected to be above 10 percent in all regions of Somalia except for a few districts in the north west. Between January and September 2018, UNICEF and partners have reached 162,750 children suffering from severe acute malnutrition (SAM) with lifesaving therapeutic nutrition treatment; representing 94 percent of its annual target.
  • During 2018, 12 polio cVDPV cases, including five cVDPV2 cases, six cVDPV3 cases and one case with cVDPV2 and cVDPV3 co-infection have been reported in central and southern regions. The next polio vaccination response against the type 3 virus is planned to start on 29 October 2018
  • UNICEF has delivered 15 consecutive months of predictable cash assistance to IDP areas in Bay and Bakool reaching 18,979 households, with over US$ 9 million transferred directly to recipients. As part of its investments in emergency safety nets and social protection, UNICEF will transition to nutrition status-based targeting, where households with children enrolled in SAM therapeutic treatment programs will receive monthly cash assistance to complement treatment outcomes.
  • In September, 6,690 children were enrolled in education services, leading to UNICEF and partners achieving the enrolment of 78,044 children (42 per cent girls) across Somalia in 2018.
