Education in Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia has been severely affected by the Ebola outbreak, with school closures having affected 5 million children at the height of the crisis.

PRINCIPAUX PROBLÈMES HUMANITAIRES

1.1 . L’insécurité alimentaire

L’insécurité alimentaire continue d’être préoccupante, malgré les mesures d’atténuation mises en place par le Gouvernement et les acteurs humanitaires. La faible capacité de production et l’insuffisance des revenus de nombreux ménages limitent leur accès aux vivres, d’où la nécessité de poursuivre l’assistance humanitaire tout en recherchant des solutions durables pour renforcer leur résilience.
