APERÇU DE LA CRISE

Depuis l’élaboration du PRH en novembre 2016, la situation sécuritaire et humanitaire en RCA s'est considérablement détériorée.

SYRIA

Half of Raqqa’s population is estimated to have fled the city in the past two weeks. WASH conditions are particularly worrying as the supply network is not functioning and sewage systems have been destroyed. Waterborne diseases are on the rise, and a polio outbreak is ongoing. Healthcare services are very limited, in part due to insufficient fuel and electricity. Fleeing the city is becoming more challenging as smuggling fees are increasing.
