Highlights

  • Despite 591,200 doses made available, Cameroon has very low vaccination rates. As of June 26, only 110,324 people have been vaccinated with a first dose of the COVID vaccine and 21,991 are fully vaccinated nationwide.

  • In the North-west, South-west (NW/SW) and Far North regions, children and communities’ lives continue to be disrupted by armed conflict. Since January 2021, 71,197 people have been reportedly displaced.

  • Despite insecurity resulting in access constraints and funding shortfalls,
    UNICEF in Cameroon has:

    • Ensured, more than 209,000 children attended classes in schools equipped to provide basic psycho-social support in risk-informed, safe learning environments in the Far North region.

    • Provided 2,800 children affected by conflict with psycho-social support delivered by equipped professionals in the NW/SW regions.

    • Reached, 93,850 caregivers with Infant and Young Child Feeding counselling and support.

  • The HAC 2021 remains significantly underfunded. In the second half of the year additional resources will become critical, with an expected response required to seasonal flooding incidences.
