Situation Overview

There are now 5.2 million people in need of urgent humanitarian assistance across Iraq. This includes;

. 1.8 million people displaced since January 2014
. 1.5 million individuals in host communities
. 1.7 million vulnerable Iraqis who are not IDPs but live in areas directly impacted by the conflict.
. 215,000 Syrian refugees.

Vulnerable groups in Iraq continue to suffer the cumulative effects of civil war, mass displacement, social tension, and a considerably weakened social sector. This situation is compounded by the low quality of essential health, water, and sanitation services caused by decades of under-investment in social infrastructure.
