Malnutrition Emergency in Northeastern Nigeria
Description: Across Borno state, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is running 11 permanent health facilities, while its medical teams make regular visits to five more health facilities. MSF is deeply concerned for the hundreds of thousands of people who could be living in areas of the state where aid agencies have not been granted access and who may not have food, water or medical care. MSF's pediatric and nutrition advisor, Dr. Kerstin Hanson, said: "When I go to the field, I'm used to being surrounded by a lot of kids. Bubbly, jumping, laughing. In Borno this is not the case, especially in the displacement camps where the kids, especially the children under five, were missing. Most of them had, unfortunately, already died. On the other hand, however, in our hospital for severely, acutely malnourished children with really severe medical complications, here the number of malnourished kids was alarming. They were of a severity that I had not recently seen in any of the projects that I've visited." Read more about this crisis: http://www.doctorswithoutborders.org/country-region/nigeria

Crise humanitaire au Nigéria et dans les pays du bassin du lac Tchad (Niger, Tchad et Cameroun)
Description: Les réfugiés, les rapatriés et les communautés hôtes ayant survécu à la violence et aux traumatismes après les attaques commises par les insurgés de Boko Haram ont besoin d'une aide d’urgence. Après une nouvelle année de conflits, de déplacements de populations et de souffrances dans une zone d'extrême pauvreté, de conditions climatiques rigoureuses, de perturbations dans l'activité économique et d'infrastructures limitées ou détruites, les besoins en matière de protection et d'assistance sont plus pressants que jamais. La situation étant imprévisible et sans perspectives immédiates de résolution ou de retour significatif, il est essentiel que la communauté internationale renforce son soutien financier. Il faut répondre d’urgence aux besoins humanitaires. Le HCR et ses partenaires ont besoin de fonds pour continuer l’action sur la base des progrès réalisés en 2016.

Alarming Levels of Malnutrition in Borno State
Description: In Borno State, the conflict opposing the Nigerian army and Boko Haram is depriving many people of their livelihoods. Even in state capital Maiduguri, where there is no fighting at present, food is hard to come by. Since MSF teams started providing assistance in Borno State, they have witnessed alarming levels of malnutrition. Children under the age of five years are the most vulnerable and therefore the worst affected. There’s an estimated 1.4 million internally displaced persons in Maiduguri. About 150,000 of them live in IDP camps. So we’re talking about over a million people that are displaced, living in Maiduguri, that are either living in makeshift settlements, living inside the host community, living wherever they can. So those people are really the hardest food distribution targets because they are not visible.
