A new Joint Response Plan for the Rohingya humanitarian crisis has been launched today in Geneva. It requests US$951 million to provide life-asaving ssistance to 1.3 million people, including Rohingya refugees who fled Myanmar to Bangladesh and local host communities.

The priority needs in the plan, which covers the March-December 2018 timeframe, include food, water and sanitation, shelter, and medical care.
