Between January and March, the number of internally displaced people in the Far North increased by 17% to 223,642. This is striking, given that UNICEF continues to face a funding gap of 71% for its humanitarian programs in Cameroon.
Fifty-six schools in the Far North have developed safe and protective school plans, which aim at equipping teachers and children with the tools and skills to protect themselves in the event of an attack at school. 26,000 children have benefitted from this initiative.
As of March 2017, 7,489 children aged 6-59 months with severe acute malnutrition have been admitted for treatment
