Mali: Complex Emergency Situation Report no. 37 (as of 19 July 2013)

HIGHLIGHTS

The nutritional situation is “serious” in the entire region of Gao with a rate of global acute malnutrition (GAM) of 13.5 percent. In the Bourem health district the GAM rate is 17 percent, which exceeds the emergency threshold of 15 percent.

Significant spontaneous return movements of internally displaced persons and refugees have been reported by humanitarian partners in the north over the last weeks. If these movements are confirmed, the humanitarian situation in the north, which is already a source of concern, could worsen.

The normal delivery of basic social services in the north remains limited due to the lack of staff and resources.

The Consolidated Appeal for Mali is 30 percent funded. More than $142 million are mobilized on a requirement of $ 476 million.
