IOM works with national, local and local partners to better understand and observe migration movements across West and Central Africa. Population flow monitoring (PMF) is an activity that quantifies and qualifies migration flows, migrant profiles, trends and migration routes at a given point of entry, transit or exit. Monthly reports are produced with statistical information collected through this exercise. This report provides an overview of the two years of data collection (since February 2016).
IOM works with national and local authorities in order to gain better understanding of population movements throughout West and Central Africa.
Flow Monitoring Points (FMPs) allow IOM to quantify and qualify migration flows, trends, and routes, at entry, transit or exit points (such as border crossing posts, bus stations, rest areas, police checkpoints and reception centers).

This Weekly Bulletin focuses on selected acute public health emergencies occurring in the WHO African Region. The WHO Health Emergencies Programme is currently monitoring 51 events in the region. This week’s edition covers key ongoing events, including:
• Nutrition activities in Niger are suffering from critical funding gaps that risk to have effects not only on the implementation of activities but also on the already worrying levels of global acute malnutrition (GAM above the 10 percent serious threshold).
• Additional support for the Diffa emergency response is needed, due to instable security conditions that may lead to additional displacements and insufficient funding for emergency operations (impact on operations as early as March).
