Maiduguri, NIGERIA – Yana, 25, was three months pregnant when she fell sick with cholera just days ago. “I was already suffering, but then I started bleeding, and the baby is gone now,” she told UNFPA in one of the tent wards for cholera patients at a displacement camp outside Maiduguri, the capital of Nigeria’s conflict-scarred Borno State.
In Nigeria, while 1.7 million people are displaced in Borno, Adamawa and Yobe states to flee violence between armed groups and the Nigerian army. A cholera outbreak has been detected in the northeast of the country.
The conflict has damaged or destroyed 75% of water and sanitation facilities in affected areas. 6.2 million people now have an urgent need for drinking water. Contaminated water leads to the spread of the cholera outbreak. The epidemic has already affected more than 2,600 people and killed 48 in Borno state.

Five weeks after the first recorded cases in the outskirts of Maiduguri, the cholera outbreak is affecting four Local Government Areas in Borno State (Northern Nigeria) with 3 346 suspected cases and 53 recorded deaths, mostly in settlements hosting internally displaced people. The ongoing vaccination campaign led by the State Ministry of Health is expected to contribute to limit the spread of the outbreak.
North-east Nigeria, Somalia, South Sudan and Yemen are facing devastating humanitarian crises. To avert a humanitarian catastrophe, the United Nations and our partners have dramatically scaled up operations.
Together with the World Bank, the UN is also stepping up cooperation between humanitarian and development partners. By strengthening such links, we aim to not only save lives, but to build people’s resilience to withstand future shocks. But ending conflicts is vital to assure protection of civilians and access to people in need.
