Humanitarian Situation Reports

© UNICEF/UN058954/Knowles-Coursin

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 in Somalia remains critical due to ongoing impacts of drought, displacement and conflict. As per the FSNAUFEWSNET 2018 Post Gu findings, 4.6 million people are still in need of urgent assistance, including an estimated 2.5 million children. While food security is overall improving, the nutrition situation remains critical with more than 954,000 children under-5 expected to be malnourished over the coming twelve months, including 173,000 severely so.
  • Since the beginning of the year, severe acute malnutrition (SAM) admissions have reached 86 per cent of the planned 2018 caseload, with 148,744 children treated. Majority of children that have received SAM treatment live in central and southern regions of Somalia (74 per cent), whilst the highest admissions have been registered in the regions of Banadir, Lower Shabelle, Bakool, Bay and Gedo which host large caseloads of IDPs.
  • The Horn of Africa is currently affected by separate outbreaks of circulating vaccine-derived poliovirus. This is the first outbreak in Somalia since 2007. Groups affected are displaced communities, nomads and children living in inaccessible areas, with poor vaccination status. In addition to ongoing localised campaigns, the Ministry of Health, WHO, UNICEF and partners are planning immunisation campaigns targeting 2,499,010 children across Somalia in October 2018.
