Humanitarian Situation Reports

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.

  • Since January 2017, UNICEF and partners have provided lifesaving therapeutic treatment to 129,602 severely malnourished children. This represents 105 percent of the children reached in 2016. The number of admissions in the hotspot areas of Bay, Bakool, Galgadud, Mudug and the Shabelle regions account for 37 percent of all children reached to date.
  • To scale-up its nutrition response, UNICEF has established 51 partnerships with local and international NGOs, delivering services through more than 750 mobile and fixed sites across Somalia. Efforts are also underway with WFP to strengthen the integration of the nutrition response, through an analysis of areas with low coverage of nutrition services. As a result, UNICEF is opening three additional Stabilization centres, as well as 30 fixed and 48 mobile outpatient therapeutic programme (OTP) sites.
  • In light of the scale of internal displacements, and to contain the AWD/Cholera outbreak, additional emergency latrines and garbage disposal pits are required in IDP sites and hotspot areas, combined with enhanced hygiene promotion and provision of hygiene kits. UNICEF urgently requires additional funding to procure and pre-position emergency WASH supplies in regional supply hubs to support 150,000 households affected by AWD/Cholera.
