SITUATION OVERVIEW

Humanitarian assistance continues across Somalia and as at mid-year about 658,000 Somalis or over 23 per cent of the 2.8 million target benefi ciaries had been assisted and protected through various interventions. Countrywide acute malnutrition levels were lowered from 14.9 to 12 per cent. During the same period, no polio cases were reported as a result of concerted vaccination campaigns against polio since 2014. This means the outbreak phase is likely to be declared over, although the risk of importation exists.
