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.

  • UNICEF has revised its humanitarian strategy for 2017 to focus on immediate life-saving measures needed to advert famine. UNICEF has revised its Humanitarian Action for Children (HAC) requirements for Somalia from US$66.1 million to US$147.9 million to meet the increased humanitarian needs of children due to the rapidly deteriorating drought situation which is now affecting most of the country.
  • More than 13,000 cases of acute watery diarrhoea (AWD)/cholera have already been reported across 12 regions in southern regions and Puntland since the start of the year. In total, UNICEF is directly supporting 34 cholera treatment centres (CTCs) and units (CTUs) across Somalia and treated 5,000 AWD/cholera cases.
  • Since the start of the year, UNICEF and partners have provided 30,663 children with Severe acute malnutrition (SAM) with lifesaving treatment, representing one and half times more admissions compared to the same period in 2016 (19,671 admissions).
