Background and Methodology
Since August 2017, an estimated 728,000 Rohingya refugees have arrived in Cox’s Bazar District, Bangladesh from Myanmar, bringing the total number of Rohingya refugees residing in the area to an estimated 895,000 individuals. Of this total, an estimated 490,000 are children below 18 years of age.
The number of people facing severe hunger in the world continues to rise, reaching 124 million people across 51 countries. Conflict and extreme climate events remain the main drivers behind severe food crises. Often occurring simultaneously, all dimensions of food security – food availability, access and utilization – are further undermined.
• UNICEF and the Government along with WHO and icddr,b are conducting the last round (4th) of Oral Cholera Vaccination (OCV) campaign from 17 November to 13 December 2018 for around 330,000 Rohingya and Host community. As of 25 November 2018, 68,484 refugees and 33,218 host community people have been vaccinated.
