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 humanitarian situation remains dire in Somalia with an estimated 4.2 million people, including 2.5 million children, in need of humanitarian assistance and protection due to repeated climatic shocks, continued conflict and violence.
  • Over 1.5 million people will require emergency nutrition support and treatment, with 954,000 children under five years projected to be acutely malnourished from August 2018 to September 2019. In 2018, 220,000 children were admitted in UNICEF-supported nutrition centres, exceeding the annual target by 28 per cent, and covering 94 per cent of the national severe acute malnutrition (SAM) burden.
  • In 2018, a three-fold reduction of measles was recorded compared to 2017 following the mass supplementary immunization of more than 4.4 million children between six months to 10 years old.
  • Some 3 million people are still in need of urgent healthcare and access to WASH services. UNICEF and partners also provided close to 1.1 million people in 2018 with temporary access to adequate and safe water.
  • In 2018, children continued to be the most affected by crises in Somalia. More than 3 million school age children remain out of school, and child protection concerns were also on the rise with 5,279 children reported to be victims of grave violations.
