The humanitarian context in Haiti is marked by the continued increase in the number of cases of deportation of Haitians from the Dominican Republic. In July 2017, 6,776 people were officially deported, an increase of 48% from the previous month (June 2017). At the same time, 37,967 Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) are still lodged in 27 camps following the January 2010 earthquake. Lack of funding still hampers the conclusion of the relocations programs. 2.35 million people remain severely acute food insecure and 1.4 million people among the 2.1 million affected by Hurricane Matthew are still in need of humanitarian assistance. The significant decline observed in the number of cholera cases continues, however the response remains underfunded and this could have a negative consequence on the ongoing momentum.
