Djibouti City – Djibouti might be a relatively small country on the Horn of Africa, but it is a significant transit location for migrants, especially from Ethiopia, who are seeking to cross over to Yemen, and ultimately to the Arab Peninsular.
Some of the migrants are children who do not leave the country and end up living on the streets of Djibouti City, the capital. For the government, this is an issue that needs attention.
In November, a total of 28,138 movements were observed at Flow Monitoring Points. This represents a slight decrease in comparison with October when 29,558 movements were observed. Specifically, five (5) of FMPs recorded a decrease in movements (Buuhoodle, Cabudwaaq, Dhobley, Dollow, and Lowyacado) while two FMPs (Bossaso and Harirad) saw an increase in movements. The majority of flows identified (57%) were incoming against 43% outgoing.

The 22th round of data collection took place in September and October 2018.
Between 26 August and 24 September 2018, southern Tripoli witnessed clashes between armed groups, triggering population movements of both local populations and migrants to safer locations, often in near-by municipalities. Following the end of hostilities, these movements were reversed as the situation gradually stabilized and livelihood opportunities, such as daily labor, became available again for migrants.
Early analysis of campaign data points to a successful vaccination round in a polio-free country at risk of possible importation.
In the last week of October, Djibouti’s Ministry of Health, working with WHO, UNICEF and other partners, successfully carried out the country’s first polio National Immunization Days (NIDs) since 2015.
Regional Flow Monitoring Network
30 FMPs and nine mobile FMPs are currently operational in seven countries.
In Burkina Faso, data was collected from five FMPs during the month of October 2018. An average of 1,117 individuals were observed crossing Flow Monitoring Points daily - a slight decrease of three per cent from the September figures.

Djibouti – An important seaport country in the Horn of Africa occupied by less than a million people, Djibouti is at the crossroads of one of the most transited and increasingly dangerous migration routes in the world.
With neighbouring Somalia to the Southeast, Ethiopia to the West and South and Eritrea to the North, Djibouti is a patchwork of ethnicities: its citizens descendants of European 19th century settlers, the Afar from Ethiopia, and the French-speaking Somali.
World Humanitarian Data and Trends presents global- and country-level data-and-trend analysis about humanitarian crises and assistance. Its purpose is to consolidate this information and present it in an accessible way, providing policymakers, researchers and humanitarian practitioners with an evidence base to support humanitarian policy decisions and provide context for operational decisions.
Spotlight on Progress
5 décembre 2018 – L’analyse préliminaire des données de la campagne indique le succès d’une tournée de vaccination dans un pays exempt de poliomyélite confronté à un risque d’importation.
Au cours de la dernière semaine du mois d’octobre, le ministère de la Santé de Djibouti, en collaboration avec l’OMS, l’UNICEF et d’autres partenaires, a mené avec succès les premières journées nationales de vaccination antipoliomyélitique conduites dans le pays depuis 2015.
2 December 2018 – Early analysis of campaign data points to a successful vaccination round in a polio-free country at risk of possible importation.
During the last week of October, Djibouti’s Ministry of Health, working with WHO, UNICEF and other partners, successfully carried out the country’s first polio National Immunization Day (NID) since 2015.
Eastern and Southern Africa is home to more than 60 per cent of children and adolescents living with HIV. This is the region where most progress in the HIV response has been made. Coverage of maternal antiretroviral treatment for pregnant and breastfeeding women living with HIV reached 93 per cent in this region in 2017. Sustaining these gains and continuing to reach children, adolescents and women at risk and living with HIV is critical. In 2017, an estimated 120,000 adolescents aged 10–19 years and 94,000 children aged 0–9 years were newly infected with HIV.
• Djibouti is hosting approximately 26,300 refugees from Somalia, Yemen, Eritrea and Ethiopia, of which 21,100 reside in settlements. WFP provides assistance to all registered refugees and asylum seekers living in Ali Addeh, Holl Holl and Markazi camps in form of general distributions, nutrition support and a cash transfer component as part of the general distribution.
