Situation Overview & Humanitarian Needs
A high rate of 17.6 per cent of Global Acute Malnutrition (GAM) is recorded among Yemeni refugees residing in Markazi camp. UNICEF is providing support for the treatment of Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM) cases and ensuring that preventive and curative services are provided.
About 30,000 (90 per cent of target) children under the age of five received one dose of Vitamin A supplementation since the beginning of the year. A total of 2,566 (46 per cent of target) children under the age of 5 suffering from SAM were treated.
As the drought persists for the ninth consecutive year and families’ vulnerability escalates in Djibouti, children continue to die of Malnutrition. Yemenis fleeing the war continue to enter the Djiboutian territory, although on a smaller scale.
The influx of El Niño displaced families from Ethiopia in the first quarter of 2016 heightened the humanitarian concerns. A measles outbreak occurred in Ali Sabieh and Dikhil regions with over 20 cases registered and three deaths.
