Our methodology uses 9 indicators, grouped under 3 categories:
Access of humanitarian actors to affected population
Access of people in need to humanitarian aid
Security and physical constraints Each category is measured through proxy indicators, such as violence against personnel, denial of needs, or active hostilities.
Data is collected at the country level and may therefore not show disparities between sub-regions.
In a major milestone, public heath centres in Harare, Budiriro and Glenview benefitted from the installation of solar systems, thanks to the Solar for Health Initiative of UNDP/Global Fund targeting 154 public health facilities across the country.
