UNICEF urgently still needs $1 million for the second S3M child survival survey in 2016. The locality level S3M 2013 survey results were critical in defining the Humanitarian Needs Overview 2015 and the ongoing 2016 HNO.

Considering the resource-heavy nature of the intervention, sufficient and timely funding is required, giving provision for the duration for reunification so as to enable more efficient response.
