Recurrent drought following several poor rainy seasons has led to food insecurity and widespread malnutrition in the countries of the Horn of Africa region (Eritrea, Ethiopia, Djibouti, Kenya, Somalia and Sudan).

Poor nutrition, a rising number of people living with human immunodeficiency virus/acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS) and increasing incidence of other infectious diseases all contribute to high levels of morbidity and mortality in the subregion.
Main Features of Drought in the HOA
7 APRIL 2006 | GENEVA -- Severe drought has resulted in a food crisis affecting more than 15 million people across Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia. These people face increased risk of starvation and disease. Half of them need urgent assistance. Food distribution has begun in most of the affected areas, but food alone will not prevent disease and deaths.
The Horn of Africa countries (Djibouti, Kenya, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Somalia, Sudan and Uganda) face common crises with similar hazards and vulnerabilities, including drought, floods, environmental degradation, land pressure, armed conflicts, acute food shortages and mass displacements, not to mention chronic under-resourcing and lack of access to any health services for vast numbers of people.
