Summary of Unpublished Study*
Micronutrient deficiencies have been reported in emergencies in populations who are dependent upon food aid, particularly refugees and IDPs. A review was recently carried out by a WHO intern to determine the awareness and progress in the field in detecting and/or preventing these outbreaks. Questionnaires were sent out to approximately 80 contacts, including academics, NGOs, aid agencies and individuals to gather information about activities and knowledge in the field.

displaced people: at the back of the queue? (Extract)

Highlights from the SIPRI YEARBOOK 2002
Security and conflicts
The 15 most deadly conflicts in 2001-those that killed over 100 people-were all intra-state conflicts, but all of them were directly affected by external actors and 11 of them spilled over international borders. 11 of the conflicts have lasted for eight or more years.
51 multilateral peace operations were operational during 2001.
There were no new UN peace missions in 2001 for the first time since 1996.
Summary of report*
Since March 1999, successive waves of people have arrived in the town of Kuito, Angola, displaced by fighting in their native Bie province. As a result, June 1999 saw the creation of thirteen camps for internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the north, south and east of the town which have continued to expand since. Currently, the resident population of Kuito is about 80,000 and the total of IDPs approximately twice that figure. Roughly 80km to the east lies the municipality of Camacupa where a number of IDP camps are also located.
