Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has begun to spread in Mali; USAID partners are adapting their programs in response.
On March 19, the UN launched the 2020 Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP) for Mali, requesting more than $390 million to provide humanitarian assistance to 3.6 million people countrywide in 2020. The UN estimates that 4.3 million people will require emergency aid in Mali, representing a more than 10 percent increase from July 2019.
Persistent insecurity and intercommunal violence displaced nearly 100,000 people from February 2019 to February 2020, bringing the total number of internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Mali to approximately 219,000 people, according to the UN.
The U.S. Government (USG) continues to assist vulnerable populations in Mali and Malian refugees in the region, providing nearly $13.6 million to date in FY 2020 to support humanitarian programs.
