Highlights

  • Bangladesh is facing multiple humanitarian crises, which include the residual impact of COVID-19, the protracted Rohingya refugee crisis and flooding among others.

  • In June 2022, 7.2 million people (3.5 million children) were affected by one of the worst floods in north-eastern Bangladesh in the past 122 years. UNICEF and partners' immediate response reached 946,000 people with lifesaving water and sanitation, child protection, health and nutrition services and supplies.

  • After the inundation, all water systems need disinfection and over 80 per cent require repair. Nearly all latrines of the most vulnerable families were damaged as poor-quality facilities could not withstand the floods effects.

  • With UNICEF support, over 305 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines were shipped to Bangladesh. To date, over 70 per cent of Bangladeshi population have received two doses of COVID-19 vaccines, and among Rohingya community, 75 per cent of the target in Cox's Bazar and 77 per cent of the target in Bhasan Char have received two doses.

  • UNICEF and the Department of Social Service supported 5,956,676 children and caregivers (2,931,810 female) to receive Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS) through the social workforce.

  • UNICEF requires US$ 112 million to support the affected population with immediate interventions.
